Whole30 Leek Chips (Roasted Leek Stalks)

Occassionally, I like to go out of my normal zone with veggies. Because of our budget 99% of produce comes from Aldi. Aldi may have amazing prices, but the selection of vegetables can get redundant. So I like to add in something new here and […]

My First Run in Months. Here’s How it Went.

I’ve been HORRIBLE about doing cardio. Or weight lifting. TBH, my “workout” routine has consisted of yoga (hot vinyasa and basic vinyasa with the occassional ashtanaga). Yoga is awesome but doesn’t get my heart rate up.  My job can be active, but the majority of the time […]
