The How-to for Finding Life Balance

Friends, I like to consider myself super on-top of current events. That's why I am writing this post in reference to a event that occurred only four years and ten months ago, versus a full five years ago. Hey, in a world where time revolves around repetitive spelling test struggles and endless Halloween celebrations, two months matters--a lot! What hot button event is on the table? A tweet. A tweet? Yup that's right--a tweet that Randi Zuckerberg made on December 9, 2011 and all the subsequent introspection that's been flying around in my brain ever since. A tweet that hit on the core of ...

4 DIY Healthy Grain Bowls

Lunch around these parts used to be kind of ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong; most days the Little was fed a well-rounded meal, but I would make do with a few leftover bites snagged from my preschooler’s plate more times than I'd like to admit. Three hours post “lunch” I'd be hangry and unable to focus. Something needed to change. I can’t recall the first time I stumbled upon grain bowls, but I haven’t looked back since. Grain Bowls are hearty, healthy, satisfying, and a fantastic way to use up leftovers. You can start with any grain of your choice. Around here quinoa, brown and wild rice blends, and farro are ...

Fall-Inspired Salads

Fall is here. There’s a real chill is in the air, and pumpkin spice has taken over just about everything. Seriously, I saw a sign the other day for pumpkin spice LUMBER. I’m fairly sure they were joking, but who can really tell at this point. While I firmly know where I stand when it comes to the pumpkin spice phenomena, I have been struggling with healthy lunch options in this chillier weather. I consider myself lucky that I actually crave salad in the warmer months, and I usually pull one together for lunch most weekdays. As soon as the leaves begin to turn, though, my ...
