Easy 3 Ingredient Paleo Hot Chocolate

Easy 3 Ingredient Paleo Hot Chocolate

I had a sweet-tooth last week and due to my move I had a lack of ingredients in my pantry.  However, I did have these three ingredients and made a quick cup of hot chocolate…it only took me about a minute to make.  It may not be a very elaborate recipe, but if you are like me and looking to make something super quick and super easy then this could be a recipe to try!

This past week has been a busy week of packing, unpacking, moving and driving.  I have got a lot done in finalizing my move from San Antonio to Austin, and it’s been tough work, but exciting as well. My apartment is pretty bare right now, the only furniture left is the air mattress I’m sleeping on, which is pretty uncomfortable.  In moving everything, I didn’t have a lot of gear left in my…

My wonderful boyfriend got me an early birthday present:

A DSLR! I’ve wanted one for a long time, and this is the perfect camera for me to learn on.

You know what that means…clearer pictures of food and better high-resolution pictures of the cats! :D

Ludo and Walowitz were excellent models, and were the perfect test subjects for my first shots.

LUDO:

Why I Joined the Military

Why I Joined the Military

There has been a few people that have asked me why I decided to join the National Guard.  There are only a few people really know that it was something that I had really wanted to do since I was in high school.

When I was 17 and a senior in high school, a recruiter for the Army National Guard came and spoke to my English class.  I was intrigued by everything she was saying.  At that time, I…

Where have I been?

So, I kind of suck at blogging. I’m just going to throw that out there. I don’t update as often as I’d like. But, I will hopefully begin the process of revamping this blog and adding more content and updating a little more often. There will be a lull where I won’t be able to post anything for a while, but I’ll get to that in a bit.

A lot has happened lately! I have tried a few new recipes..

Lo-Carb Paleo Breakfast Casserole

Lo-Carb Paleo Breakfast Casserole

wpid-wp-1402324365818.jpeg

I’m back with another breakfast casserole recipe!

I’ve taken a liking to breakfast casseroles.  For one thing (if you can’t tell already), I really love breakfast foods and eat them frequently.  And another, I like having an already-made casserole in my fridge available to heat and eat.

It’s funny how your tastes can change over the years.  Five years ago, I wouldn’t have touched this recipe…

Am I an Athlete?

Am I an Athlete?

athlete sketch

A few weeks ago I was getting ready to do a WOD at my boyfriend’s CrossFit box, and when the coach called us up to the whiteboard to go over the workout, she did it by saying “Athletes! Come gather around!”

It may seem silly, but at that moment I felt a little excited at being referred to as an “athlete.”

When I was younger, I had the secret dream of being an athlete (it was secret mostly…

CrossFit Weekend

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great, safe Memorial Day weekend.
I had a very CrossFit-filled weekend, starting with Friday. My box has now been open a year, so for their anniversary they had a team competition and a big Bar-be-Que. We were put into teams of four and had to complete 400 kettle-bell swings, 300 wall-balls, and 200 burpee-box-jumps, with a 300m run trigger. This was a lot of…

There have been many other articles like this one, and there will be more. There has also been many articles that argue the opposite, and there will be more. Before I go into my personal experience, I want to explain that it is just that…my personal experience. Everyone is different, and what works for you works for you. I know CrossFit gets a lot of love and a lot of hate. I think the majority…

Meat Stuffed Sweet Potatoes and Raspberry-Bacon Salad

Meat Stuffed Sweet Potatoes and Raspberry-Bacon Salad

Last week I have a leftover baked sweet potato in my fridge. I love sweet potatoes and can just eat them plain, but I wanted to do something different, but quick. So I came up with this stuffed sweet potato, and my boyfriend and I loved it! It is pretty darn easy as well, baking the sweet potato would take the longest time, if you don’t already have one pre-baked like I did.

Note:My boyfriend and…

Smothered Pork Chops with Bacon and Carmelized Onions (Paleo)

I love pork chops. I love bacon. I love carmelized onions. So, why not put them all together?

This was something I cooked on a whim this past weekend when I was trying to figure out something lower carb for my boyfriend and I to eat for dinner, since we had a pretty high-carb breakfast (we had these sweet potato pancakes, topped with homemade applesauce, then topped with homemade paleo coconut…

My Love and Hate for Running

My Love and Hate for Running

I have a love/hate relationship with running, and probably always will.

I will always have a sort of love for it, because my journey to a healthier me all began with a goal of being able to run more than a mile..and then a 5K. I succeeded in that, and on a good day I can run up to 6 miles, but that small first goal is what prompted me to quit my unhealthy ways and focus more on eating for fuel…

IMG_20140324_094603

Yes, I cooked up all of that!!

This is one of my boyfriend and I’s favorite things to eat for breakfast…or any meal! Especially after a workout, since it’s loaded with protein! In the past, I had just made it as a scramble for us, but it occurred to us this past weekend that I could probably double the recipe and turn it into a large casserole. That way, it’s easily available in the fridge to…
