Gratitude Lately No 1



 My amazing friends, family & coworkers. I need to give thanks for to these people more often. They have made me who I am today and have loved me when I was not lovable (which can happen quite often. Gurl got hormones).

This has by far been the best birthday because of the people who made it that way. #thankful!


Summer…where are YOU?!




Things I’ve discovered in my 24 (almost 25) years of life

There are three two types of people in the world:

1.) Those who make you feel better

2,) Those who make you feel worse

3.) Those who yell at you for not ordering enough sandwiches

…and while I understand both are put into our lives to teach us lessons, cling to those who make you feel better because these people will be your greatest blessing.


Bread Success!

I feel like this really deserves a blog post.

I have now successfully baked bread-twice! Booyah.

This is a big deal because I am a horrible (h o r r i b l e) cook. <—-Yep, seriously.

I have decided to go GF for a while for health reasons. At first, this was a very intimidating decision because I was afraid of having to tell people and getting the “WHYYYYY?” Ya-da, ya-da. But I had a little talk with myself and decided who the hell cares what other people think to get over it and do what is best for me. And right now, not eating gluten is just that.

With that being said, going GF has so far been such a positive experience for me! I’ve learned (am learning) to like cooking and spending time in the kitchen. I am also learning to really listen to my body and treat it better. And that itself feels awesome!

So with all of that being vented said, here is the recipe I use. (Thank you maria!)

Maria’s GF Bread

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
6 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted OR unsweetened almond milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium-sized bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until very smooth. Grease a small bread pan and fill about 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Makes 12 servings.

Traditional Bread = 82 calories, 1g fat, 1g protein, 21g carbs, trace fiber (21 effective carbs)
“Healthified” Bread (almond milk) = 54 calories, 2.8g fat, 3.5g protein, 2.9g carbs, 1.7g fiber (1.2 effective carbs)


This is realllllll good with some almond butter on it. Or just plain.

Watch out Martha Stewart.
