Easy Dinner {Black Bean Spinach Bowl}

Easy Dinner {Black Bean Spinach Bowl}

One of the things I am liking most about my 30 for 30 goal is the lack of eating out at restaurants.  It is just easier for me to cook at home so that I know 100% what is in the meal.  One of the restaurants we have been to during this time is Chipotle.  We frequent this … Continue reading

30 for 30 {Half-way}

Today marks the half-way point on my 30 for 30 goal.  This means I am almost 30! I wanted to start the new year with a reboot.  During the holidays, way too much sugar (and flour and meat) was consumed!  For two weeks, I have been eating a whole-foods plant-based diet. What does that mean exactly? … Continue reading

When I was growing up, my mom cooked broccoli for herself for dinner.  She would steam it back then, and I always hated how it made the house smell.  At the time, I thought she must be super old to only eat veggies for dinner.  Fast forward a couple of decades, I now have a … Continue reading
