6 Ingredient Bison Crockpot Meatballs

I don’t know if it’s me being almost 7 months pregnant or just me being me but I can’t even even wash dishes in hot water without feeling like I’m going to melt into the floor. New England is notorious for its crazy weather such as skipping the so-called Spring and diving head first into summer. Perfect example, the past few days we’ve reached record temps in the 90’s and I just. Can’t. Function.

I’m currently melting just writing this blog post… Continue reading

I made a pit stop at Whole Foods on my way home from work the other day. I pulled into the crowded parking lot, snagged a pretty decent spot (to my surprise), parked my car like a pro and headed in on a broccoli, grapefruit and almond yogurt mission. After grabbing what I needed from the produce section I continued on and strolled through the remaining isles finding myself reaching for items not on my list (hunger, maybe?). When I finally made it to the check out line, after covering seemingly every square inch of the store, I waited patiently for my turn. Continue reading

I started to watch a new Netflix series the other night called ‘Chef’s Table’. This particular episode featured world renowned Italian chef, Massimo Bottura. The episode interviewed him about his rise to becoming such an impactful part of the food world. When the show began I was initially intrigued by the masterfulness and thinking outside of the box that it took for Massimo to become the chef he now is. Though, as the episode continued it suddenly hit me in kind of the same way the almond butter I was simultaneously shoveling into my mouth by the spoonful did, I realized there was a deeper level to his story. Not only did his talent of creating exquisite dishes earn him his place in the food world but it was also his unquestionable courage that gave him the ability to take a risk.

A risk… Continue reading

There’s a lot to be said about change. Change occurs daily from the most minuscule moment to some major turn of event. Either way it results in one thing…growth. No matter what change occurs, whether it’s positive or negative we take away something from it. We may learn a valuable lesson, become a better person (hopefully not a worse one) and maybe even be able to continue on to a new chapter in our book of life. Each day we experience change and are able to walk away a wiser person. Each and every time we are given the chance of changing our current path we get the chance to make a choice, either change or don’t. It may seem like a complicated decision in the moment because many of us are overwhelmed by the idea of something ‘new’. We get comfortable in our daily routines and we just can’t seem to break away from our norm. It becomes work to feel like you have to uproot yourself and be replanted in what may feel like a whole new world. In our mind it’s simply terrifying. So, as a result, we often choose the latter and continue on our regular path avoiding any splits in the road at all costs. Continue reading
