Something Old, Something New...
Please excuse the disappearing act! Thank you all for the sweet comments about my hair. I really appreciate the positive feedback especially since it was a HUGE change for me. I can't believe it's almost time to get it cut again. I think I'm going shorter this time. I'm just gonna have fun with it for awhile. Enough about hair...

I have located the kitchen! To say the last two weeks have been crazy for me would be an understatement. Tuesday (yesterday) marked the first day that I am at my new schedule. I'm back to working for myself again and that feels so good! Not that I have complete control of my schedule since my clients run that, but at least I have more time for cooking and writing! I also LOVE working with people one on one. Now my verbal diarrhea about health and nutrition goes to people that want to know!

The kitchen has been producing some old favorites and some new treats! I will give more details on the new eats when I find a little more time to write, but for now I will just give you a peak!

Egg white omelets with sauteed spinach fresh salsa and nutritional yeast...

Fried rice over crisp romaine covered in Sriracha!

Vegetable shepherd's pie...

Meaty shepherd's pie...

Socca crackers!

Pan seared talapia with fresh sugar snap peas and smashed potatoes!

Over easy eggs with fresh sugar snap peas and smashed potatoes...

Gluten free pound cake! (recipe coming soon!)

Gluten free caramel gooey bars!

Apple cranberry chia jam...

By the way, people, I have found heaven at Costco! Seriously, my fridge is busting with fresh vegetables and I am in my happy place with it!

Anyone else buying bulk veggies? What do you buy when you do...and then what is your favorite way to use them? I think it's time I try spinach in a smoothie!

    Yayay for short hair and for playing in the kitchen!

    The food looks yummy...I love when produce is plentiful. My goal this year, though, is to not go crazy buying pretty stuff (because I waste a lot of it based on the fact that Joe is picky and I have to eat most of it myself!).

    Have a great day, friend!
