Coconut Chips

When I was in Maui a year ago we stopped somewhere along the "Road to Hana" where there was a tiny coffee shop and a guy selling coconut chips outside his house. He had 5 or 6 flavors to choose from so I got vanilla and another one that I can't remember. And my dad got the volcano flavor which was a mix of sweet and spicy, and quite delightful. I looked up a recipe shortly after I got home from the trip and haven't actually tried it... until today.

New recipes!

A while ago I decided I eat too much of the same thing and it was getting monotonous so for my birthday and or Christmas I asked for a cook book. I had asked for either the Oh She Glows cook book or Thug Kitchen's first cook book as I wasn't sure at the time. My aunt got me a gift card instead though because it's cheaper to order online than purchase in store. So I ended up getting the Oh She Glows one.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a lovely time over the holidays. I've been sick since a week before Christmas so only three workouts have happened. I still have a hard time deciding between when I should rest and when I should workout. I also have a hard time going easy... I just want to go all out every time. I've also been eating ALL the things so I'm feeling extra fluffy these days. 😒

Tofu Scramble

This was my breakfast this morning and it was quite delightful - I will be having this again tomorrow morning. I was inspired by this recipe and did my own twist. I didn't take pictures because I made this before work this morning and didn't really have time since I was getting ready between the steps.

Rajma Masala (Indian style kidney beans)

Alright, I am finally posting an Indian recipe. This is one of two recipes that I use often. I love kidney beans and they're high in protein. This recipe is delicious and full of flavor (what Indian dish isn't full of flavor?)

Spaghetti and veg-balls

This was my lunch twice this week. I had this spaghetti in my cupboard for an amount of time I won't disclose (but it was still sealed) and I bought the veggie balls from Ikea a few months ago and haven't made anything to put them in so when I was running low on food I threw this together.

Catching up - my summer and beginning of fall

Alright, I know it's been a few months since my last post. I had an awesome and busy summer making new memories with family and friends. I played softball again this year with my mom, boyfriend, and a few of the people from last year's team. A few of us also joined the fall league but the last two games have been cancelled. The last games of the season are this weekend, which is sad but it's definitely too cold for out door sports.

How to get started and my favorite FREE work out sites

It's been a while since I provided my tips for starting to eat better and get healthy so I've copied and pasted the info from my blog post from January 2014 and edited it a bit. I've updated the links as well with my current favorite work out websites that I incorporate into my work out routine

My winter vacation (posting very late!)

Alright, how is everyone doing? It's been a while since I've posted again and for that I am sorry (if anyone even reads my blog...) At the end of January I went to Maui for my hot vacation this year! I went with my dad, aunts, uncles, and cousin.

Getting on that meal prep

Like I said in my previous post I've been focusing on eating more vegetables and now I'm focusing on eating enough non meat protein. I eat eggs, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, beans and rice, quinoa, and tofu as my main sources of protein. I was slacking a bit in the meal prepping department so I've been making sure to do that at least twice a week so I have healthy, nutritious food ready when I'm hungry.
