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?

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…

Oh my, it’s been quite a while since I’ve updated! I have been a rather busy girl lately.  In the past few weeks, I traveled to Florida

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…

Some call me crazy…I call it dedicated.

It’s easier for me to live a healthy-eating lifestyle because I plan everything, and outside of that I don’t really have too much of a social life (which I don’t mind one bit). In the beginning of the week, I will usually sit down and plan my meals out for the rest of the week. I use MyFitnessPal to track my food and make sure I am meeting all my macros, and once I have everything programmed in,…

Salads! http://wp.me/s2Fdkq-salads

I have been on a bit of a salad kick lately, wanting to make and eat these elaborate salads for my boyfriend and I to eat for lunch on the weekends. To me they’re fun to make…chopping up different veggies and fruits to put in it and coming up with different combinations of ingredients to put together! It allows me to exercise my creativity!

And they always look so pretty! This is the one I made…

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE me some chicken thighs! They’re always nice and tender, and fairly cheap. I like to buy a big pack for my boyfriend and I and bake them with some type of marinade on Sundays. The big packs at our grocery store comes with ten bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. I’ll cook them on Sunday nights and we’ll usually have two apiece for dinner and then we have leftovers…

Goals

I set a few goals for myself when I began CrossFit, milestones I wanted to accomplish. And three of them I have achieved!!

1. Pull-ups - this was the first thing I really wanted to achieve–unassisted kipping pull-ups. Getting the kipping motion was a little weird for me at first, but then I was able to do them with the resistance band. Then the thinner resistance band. Then, at the beginning of…
