February Favorites

You guys it’s already almost March and I literally just realized I never even did a January Favorites roundup…THAT’S how quickly time is passing😮

That being said, it’s been an incredibly exciting month filled with change (#entrepreneurlife), events (because that life also requires lots of networking), and fun, too! In fact, I’m actually in Colorado right now for our annual family ski trip, and have been to both Ojai and the Santa Ynez Valley in the past couple of weeks, so fun might be an understatement…

Since I’m technically rounding up my favorites from the last two months instead of just one, I can tell you that the products listed below are for real some of the foods or things I enjoy on a regular basis after having had time to really evaluate what got to make the cut😉

Dancing for Donuts | February Favorites

Banza Chickpea Rice – You guys this RICE holy crap. It’s made out of chickpeas…like WHAT?! HOW. It tastes like orzo and only takes about 6 minutes to make, plus it has 11g of protein and 5g of fiber. I turned mine into “fried rice” by sautéeing garlic and ginger, then adding shitake mushrooms, carrots, coconut aminos, avocado and TJ’s ETBT seasoning!

Ona Cookies – When I tell you guys that I try a lot of little healthy treats/bars, I mean a LOT. I haven’t fallen in love with a snack like these Ona Cookies in quite some time and it’s safe to say that I’m full on hooked. They’re gluten-free and kind of taste like macaroons, but so much better and the flavors are to die for. I think the Coconut Shortbread is my favorite!

Dancing for Donuts | February Favorites

Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi – Listen. I would be straight up lying to you if I said I didn’t have this at least twice a week for dinner. Maybe three times…it’s just THAT good and that easy! I usually sauté mine in a pan with ghee and spinach, add in a tablespoon or two of pesto, and some parmesan. Well, that or my vegan mac and cheese sauce!

Elmhurst 1925 Plant Based Milks – I know everyone and their mother makes nut milks now, but I recently tried Elmhurst 1925 and was blown away. First of all, the ingredients are always just the nut (or oat) plus water, that’s IT. And lemme tell ya, next time you’re grocery shopping just take a look at the nutrition label on your almond milk. I can almost guarantee you’ll see a longer list of ingredients! These milks are also nice and creamy, especially when you froth them before pouring in your hot coffee😍

Dancing for Donuts | February Favorites

Lavva Plant Based Yogurt – Okay I’ve clearly formed many obsessions this month because I swear to you I could survive off this stuff. I’ve tried a ton of different non-dairy yogurts and truly have hated them all…until now!! Lavva is thicker than any others I’ve tried (they’re usually so soup-y!) and the flavors are incredible. I also love that there’s no added sugar!

Mad Fit YouTube Workouts – What’s that you say, you didn’t know about my YouTube obsession? Yep, welcome to my life folks. I don’t even watch tv anymore really😂 One of my favorite things about the platform though is access to free workouts!! Mad Fit posts all kinds of amazing workouts that vary in time and work all different parts of the body. They’re home-workout friendly and require little to no equipment, too!

Dancing for Donuts | February Favorites

Osso Good Bones Signature Bone Broth – So it’s come to my attention that not many people know what bone broth is! I think I must just live in an LA bubble because I feel like everyone I know is drinking this stuff – it’s insanely high in protein and nutrients, but fairly low in calories (not that I’m counting, but y’know!). And more importantly, it’s amazing for gut health! If you want to hear more about it, and why I love Osso Good Bones so much, you can watch my YT video from my broth cleanse!

Dancing for Donuts | February Favorites

True & Co. Bras – Okay I know this isn’t for everyone, just my ladies, but I had to share it with you. I’ve been searching high and freakin’ LOW for a solid strapless bra that doesn’t dig into me or fall down, and I’ve finally found a winner. I actually might be even more obsessed with the True Body Seamless V Neck Bra, which I was definitely not expecting. It seemed a little grandma-y when I first got it and now that I’ve worn it for the past 5 days, I can confirm that it is straight up seamless magic.

WHEW, sorry that was a long one! I wish I could add at least 5 more things, but those might have to wait since I know you probably have a zillion things you have to do today.

Thank you so much for stopping by and if you have time, please let me know in the comments some of the things you’ve been loving lately!

Friday Finds

Happy Friday and Happy FEBRUARY!!!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

You guys, January was actually freakin’ bonkers for me and 100% felt like it was 100 days long. And I know everyone says that, but I feel like this past months was one of the craziest I’ve had in a VERY long time! It flew by so quickly that I didn’t even have a chance to do a January Favorites post for you, so I apologize!

With major changes to my career and schedule, I’m still trying to figure out this whole work and balance thing, so please bear with me😅 But for now, let’s just get back to Friday Finds, ’cause it’s been a hot minute!

How to Make Lasting Changes to Your Diet – THIS. I’ve never been one to make any super crazy changes to my diet, but that’s also because I strive to make healthy habits more just part of my lifestyle!

Prepping Ingredients for Awesome Lunches – Because you deserve to have a better one and so do I.

How I’m Getting Excited About Spending Valentine’s Day By Myself – I actually think my bf will be in town for V-Day, but even still, I think this kind of night is perfect for whenever. Self care and pampering is a MUST.

Creating a Weekly Family Meal Plan & TJ’s/Whole Foods Grocery List – Suuuuuper helpful (even without a family!). I don’t know why, but I’m so fascinated by other people’s grocery lists!! I also get some good ideas from seeing them.

How to Make a Superfood Latté – So you can not be like me and spend $8 on a latté (yes I did that this week, no I do not regret it, but still…😅)!

Influencer vs. Expertise: The Dangerous Rise of the Fitness Influencer – This article was the TALK of my Instagram feed this week, wow. It’s actually an incredible post and so valid. I highly recommend it to anyone in the fitness space, or even influencer space at all. It made me really think about what I’m posting and how it’s affecting other people!

Well, that’s it for today. Go enjoy your Friday night, stay warm, and eat something yummy!!

Recipes I’ve Recently Made & LOVED

Hey y’all! How’s everyone’s week going?!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made And Love

This is my first full week in LA as an entrepreneur and so far it’s been fantastic! It’s kind of crazy how much you can get done in a day, and how quickly time can fly. It’s almost February too, which is bonkers!!

I’ve actually been cooking up a storm over here, since I now have a bit more time and flexibility! While nothing is ever too crazy, there have been some notable recipes I’ve either followed or created. Since I’ve been catching up on work after Hawaii, I figured I’d throw everything in one blog post for you. Everything is shared below and honestly, I’m hungry just looking at it all again😍

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Sausage Pancake Muffins – I didn’t really follow much of a recipe on this one, but I did whip together a batch of Birch Benders pancake mix (as instructed), and then tossed in some Jones Dairy Farm pork sausage to bake in muffin cups at 350 degrees fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. Make these and then dip them in maple syrup. YOU’RE WELCOME.

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Ambitious Kitchen’s Corn Pasta Salad with Cashew Cilantro Pesto – Make this immediately. Trust me. And if you use Banza Chickpea Pasta (aka my favorite pasta of life) it’ll be packed with protein and fiber!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Pinch of Yum’s Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies – Made these for a dinner party last weekend and MAN they were a hit. Definitely making them again veryyyy soon!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Easy Raspberry Chia Jam – All you need to do to make this is heat up a few frozen raspberries in the microwave (I do about a quarter cup!), throw in about 1/2 tbsp chia seeds (ground or whole) and a sprinkle of coconut sugar. BOOM. 20 seconds later: chia jam!

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Vegan Cashew Cheese with Chickpea Pasta – So I didn’t fully follow a recipe for this one, but I did take a 1/2 cup soaked then drained cashews (in water for about 15 minutes), 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup vegetable broth, 6 tbsp nutritional yeast, 2 gloves garlic, sea salt + peppa, and 2 tbsp brown or dijon mustard then blend it all up and voila! Creamy, dreamy vegan cheese 🙂

Dancing for Donuts | Recipes I've Recently Made and LOVED

Egg White Stovetop Oats – For this, I just took 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup water, then stirred it together over the stove on medium for about 7 minutes. Once the liquid was almost completely absorbed, I took them off the heat, poured in an egg white and stirred veryyyy quickly so that it wouldn’t all cook together like an actual egg! This just adds some extra protein and a lotta fluff. Highly recommend!

Friday Finds

Okay it has been a MINUTE since our last Friday Finds, huh?!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

Life just took over, guys. I’ve also been feeling slightly uninspired, and I think that’s probably just because I’m in that home stretch to my holiday vacation. It’s interesting how much easier it is for me to be open on here than it is on Instagram where I feel like it’s important for me to be positive at all times. Granted, I don’t want to be a bummer, just wanted to be real with you!

In any case, I’ve still been reading my favorite blogs and media sites because that’s what keeps me sane sometimes! It’s literally the part of my morning routine I can’t give up, no matter how busy I am. Here are some of my faves from the past few weeks!

Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta with Tahini Sauce – Okay well this sounds absolutely DELIGHTFUL for this time of year, wow.

10 Minimalist Holiday Decor Ideas You Can Do in a Flash – Since spending a fortune on decor I don’t even have room for the other 11 months of the year doesn’t sound very reasonable😅

I Tried Starbucks’ New Juniper Latté and it Surprised Me – Have you tried it yet?! I’m intrigued…

What to Do When You Feel a Cold Coming On – aka me, about half of the entire winter season🤣

Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas – I LOVE these for hostess gifts for holiday parties, secret Santa exchanges, stocking stuffers, etc.!

6 Pushup Tweaks to Target Different Muscle Groups – Who knew a move could be so versatile?! Honestly I have such a love/hate relationship with pushups.

Hope you have a great weekend, y’all!! Let me know in the comments if you’re doing anything festive – I plan on watching at least 3 more cheesy Netflix Christmas movies.

Pumpkin Protein Muffins

A new week calls for a new recipe!

Dancing for Donuts | Pumpkin Protein Muffins

This is one I know you’ll love because my boyfriend told me it was a winner😏 I made these Pumpkin Protein Muffins last week because my desire to bake on the daily is in FULL force. I figure, okay so my metabolism and activity level is far lower than they used to be, but I also love food… SO! The resolutions to this are a) exercise better portion control and b) bake things that are better for me. Luckily these muffins don’t taste healthy in the least, though!

Some ways I like to make my treats a touch healthier include using less oil/butter (and subbing in pumpkin/banana instead), using healthier sugar alternatives or less of them altogether (ie. maple syrup, stevia, monk fruit, banana), and adding in some protein for staying power. This recipe does all three!

I actually subbed out part of the flour in this recipe with my Eat Like a Woman Very Vanilla Shake, which is one of my favorite protein powders!! This line was developed with women’s bodies in mind (since our bodies process food and nutrients SO differently!), so this powder has probiotics, plant-based protein (which we absorb more easily), 22 vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and omega 3’s. I promise you I’m not getting paid to post about this, I just truly love it!

With this protein powder, vitamin & fiber rich pumpkin, protein packed greek yogurt and almond flour, and only 2 tablespoons of sweetener, you’ll feel good about snacking on these for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even dessert😊

Dancing for Donuts | Pumpkin Protein Muffins

Pumpkin Protein Muffins

1 cup pumpkin purée

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I used 2% fat)

1 egg

1 medium ripe banana, mashed

2 tbsp maple syrup

1 cup oat flour or whole wheat flour

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup ELAW Very Vanilla Life Stage Shake (or your favorite protein powder!)

1 1/2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1-2 pinches of sea salt

cacao nibs (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, combine all the wet ingredients including the pumpkin, egg, greek yogurt, maple syrup and banana.

3. In a small bowl, stir together the dry ingredients including the flours, protein powder, spices, sea salt and baking powder.

4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold until completely combined. Do not overmix 🙂

5. Using a spoon, fill silicone muffin liners (these are my favorite!) or a greased muffin tin 3/4 of the way full. Top each muffin with cacao nibs if desired. Bake for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Store in the fridge for up to 5 days!

That’s it for today, loves! Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful week!

Welcome back and helloooo Friday!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

This week has been, UGH. Just so many ups and downs, yes some personally, but more so with the news. It’s hitting quite close to home this week after the shooting and now extremely serious forest fire in Thousand Oaks where my cousins live. The only good news I can think of is that a recored of 117 women were elected into office and the youngest one is from the town next to mine in New York, so that’s pretty cool! A silver lining to chaos, I suppose.

I just want to share some of my favorites from this week, in case you need to read something other than the news. I know I could use a break!

How to Make a Satisfying Salad Every Single Day – Wait, this is SO HELPFUL. I swear, sometimes I’m hungry an hour after I eat my lunch…

Butternut Squash, Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Strata – If I had a Friendsgiving to go to this year, I would 110% be making this!!

The Many Incredible Benefits of Echinacea – My parents used to take this when I was younger (maybe they still do? Hey mom & dad!) but maybe I need to start taking it, too! Do you guys?

The Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas – If only these weren’t so dang expensive!!! I’m obsessed with them.

5-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge Squares – I sure as heck don’t trust myself with a bag of chocolate chips in the house but for this recipe? I might just have to try.

Cranberry Apple Sangria – Well THIS sounds like a winner for the holidays😍

Sending you all my love and please, don’t forget to tell the people in your life how grateful you are for them. Life is short❤️

Donut Workshop Recap (& My First Time Hosting An Event!)

Hi guys!! Guess what?!

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

I hosted my first event this past weekend!! Oh man, it was so chaotic but SO much fun.

One of my goals for this year was to host an event and I kind of just assumed that it wouldn’t happen until I met my friend Charlotte at a wellness event early on in the summer. As someone who has thrown events in the past and truly enjoys doing it, Charlotte asked me if I would co-host a donut baking workshop with her and of COURSE I had to say yes!

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

So for the past month of so, we’ve been working together to plan a sort of baking class with sponsors, swag bags, cute decor, and other fun things. I think all in all about 17 people showed up to bake with us and though it was a little crowded, everyone successfully baked a batch of their own donuts!! It was so fun to see their creations😍

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

We started out by making announcements on both of our Instagram pages and the event quickly filled up! It’s actually pretty awesome to be able to bring people together that are literally just from the internet. It makes me want to have a bazillion events just so that I can finally meet & hang with all my insta-friends!! Maybe someday🙏🏼

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

Anyway, from there, Charlotte put together a spreadsheet (because she’s THE most organized person ever) and we started to keep tabs on who was attending, if they had any food allergies, and what kind of donut pan they wanted! For $15, we provided a donut pan, a mini spatula (courtesy of one of our sponsors, GIR!), all the ingredients to bake and frost a batch of donuts, a little swag bag, and some light bites/drinks! We had some mimosas and asked people to bring their own mugs for coffee – I really loved that idea!

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

The event went for about 2 and a half hours and even though it ended with me shattering my phone screen trying to take a photo, it was SUCH a blast. I seriously want to hold these events all over the country, how cool would that be?! Maybe that’s the goal for next year😊

Dancing for Donuts | Donut Workshop (My First Time Hosting An Event!!)

Before I go, I just want to say a quick thank you to my beautiful co-host Charlotte, my friend Taylor for coming, helping us set up/clean up, and taking most of these gorgeous photos, and our sponsors including Varieteas, Sun & Swell, Goldsheep Clothing, Bob’s Red Mill, GIR, and Lily’s Sweets!!

October Favorites

Woah baby, it’s already November! It’s like I blinked and another month went by😳

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

October was honestly a pretty fun month for me – I finally stopped traveling, got settled into work, a fitness routine, caught up with friends, went on some adventures, and most importantly – tried some really freakin’ good food.

I’ll just jump into it since I’m already a day late to posting this, but here are all the things I’ve been loving from food to fitness and fashion!

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

Live Pure Smoothie Cubes – Guys, this product might be the coolest thing I’ve seen or used in a WHILE. I used these superfood cubes to make the smoothie up in that top picture (I mixed their PB & J cubes with the Pitaya Protein cubes!) and then topped it off with the Live Pure granola. Seriously obsessed. There are a ton of flavors (that all contain probiotics), but what’s even cooler is that you can mix them all up to make even more. They give you a little guide when you order! I can’t wait to try the rest😍 If you guys want to see what the hype is about, you can use LivepureJordan to get 15% off!

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

Health Warrior Protein Mug Muffin – Another product that kind of blew me away this month was these protein mug muffins!! I haven’t ever tried anything else from Health Warrior, but I’ve heard good things and these did not disappoint. I don’t know about you, but I used to make all kinds of mug cakes in my early 20’s (#desperatefordessert) and these are 10x easier and better for you. The flavor is delicious and they just require you to add water + microwave. Such a great idea for a pre or post-workout snack, or even dessert!

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

Daily Harvest Mint Cacao & Carrot Chia Smoothies – Okay after seeing this brand ALL over my Instagram, I was seriously so happy when they reached out to me so I could finally try it for myself! I wasn’t sure what to expect, or if the hype was even real, but WOW you guys. I’ve honestly loved every flavor, but the Mint Cacao and Carrot Chia are legit incredible. I added some extra greens and protein powder to mine, but they’re amazing on their own. At the risk of sounding like a broken record with these codes, I legitimately just want you guys to be able to save money if you want to! You can use ‘JORDAN3’ at checkout to get your first 3 cups free 🙂

Cotton On Donut Slippers (pictured up top!) – I couldn’t not add these to my list! I bought them earlier this month after a friend sent me a screen shot and I love them SO much. I honestly just love slippers in general, but DONUT slippers?! HECK YES. P.s. They’re literally $10…you gotta do it if you’re a donut lover like me.

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz – I finally bought myself a pair of new sneakers after having holes in my others for months and doing way too much research on what to get🤣 I love these because they’re super light, SO comfortable, and they go with everything. Might buy them again in another color!

305 Fitness – The workout class my friends have been raving about in NYC is finally in LA!!!!!! I couldn’t tell you how excited I was when I realized they were here – they don’t have their own studio, but they teach classes out of a gym in West Hollywood and now I literally don’t want to do any other workout. It’s basically a super fun, intense dance cardio class with a live DJ and fun lights!! It’s exhausting af, but such a blast, which is the best way to get your sweat on, in my opinion!

IMG_3800

Fonuts – I know this place is exclusively in West Hollywood in LA, but I couldn’t not include it! I’ve been a fan of them forever (these donuts are baked and completely gluten-free – most of them are vegan, too!), but I fell more in love with them earlier this month when I got to meet the owners at their re-launch party. They are SO nice and you know I have a soft spot for kind and motivated entrepreneurs. If you’re ever in LA, please of please try these donuts, they’re my favorite in this whole city!

Dancing for Donuts | October Favorites

Joe & The Juice Coconut Yogurt + Granola (The Natural Born) – So Joe & the Juice is all over the country and even in Europe, but I apologize if you don’t have one near you because their new coconut yogurt and granola is actually the most ridiculous thing I tried all month. Swear. It’s like…super rich and creamy and kind of tastes like dessert but it’s also packed with nutrients. Their granola was to die for, too! I’ve only been there once since it’s not super close to me, but I am counting the minutes til I can go back – their juices sounded amazing, too!

Alright y’all, that is IT! I hope I didn’t bore you – let me know if you had any favorites from the month or if you’d try any of mine!! Have a very happy November 💜

10 Recipes I Plan On Making This Autumn

Friends! Fall is…still not here in LA yet, sadly…but I will continue to light my scented candles and buy baby pumpkins until it is!

Dancing for Donuts | 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts

One of the things I do every fall in LA, when I get the most homesick for NY, is make all the autumn-y, cozy foods I can. I wanted to put together this list partly for myself, to keep track of all the things I want to make this season, but also for you in case you need a little comfort food, too!

2-Ingredient Pumpkin Donuts – First up is my pumpkin donuts (pictured above!). This one is at the top of this list for a reason, you guys. I’ve brought these to countless parties and friends, and they are a friggin’ HIT. Plus, they’re 2-ingredients. You really can’t beat that.

Butternut Squash Mac And Cheese

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – Like, can we just talk about the bacon on there fore a second?!?! Jeeeeez 😍😍😍

Dancing for Donuts | Slow-Cooker Pumpkin Maple Granola.

Slow-Cooker Maple Pumpkin Granola – This is one of my favorite things to make in the fall, it makes the house smell amazing!! And it’s seriously SO easy. I usually eat the whole mason jar with my bare hands before I can even sprinkle it on my yogurt…

Healthy Apple Muffins

Healthy Apple Muffins – You know me, I loooove pumpkin, but I think I love apples even more. I want to make these so badly!

Dancing for Donuts | Easiest Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls for an Immaculate Thanksgiving

Pumpkin Pie Crescent Rolls – THESE. Listen, if there’s one thing you make for a holiday gathering this year, please make these because they’re freakin’ AWESOME. I made them last year for a campaign, and ended up making them three more times before the holidays were over. They’re a crowd-pleaser!

Creamy Pumpkin Spaghetti

Creamy Pumpkin Spaghetti with Garlic Kale – If this doesn’t look like the best dinner to pair with a glass of red and an episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, I’m not sure what is.

White Bean Pumpkin Hummus

White Bean Pumpkin Hummus – I’m obsessed with all the recipes on this blog, but this one is definitely one I must make asap. It’s so few ingredients, but looks like the perfect thing to pair with pita chips or veggies!!

Butternut Apple Chicken Salad

Fall Harvest Kale Salad – As you know, I’m trying to have one salad a day. It’s pretty hard unless you plan ahead or buy it out, but I’m thinking that if I made this, I’d want to eat it three times a day.

Dancing for Donuts | 5-Ingredient Slow-Cooker Chili.

5-Ingredient Slow Cooker Chili – Apologies for the awful photo, this is a super old recipe, but it’s one I make at least once a month each fall/winter!! It’s healthy, easy, and makes a ton, so it’s great for lunches at work or low-key dinners!

Fall Harvest Kale Salad

Butternut Apple Chicken Salad with Maple Dressing – Aaaand one last salad, since I literally was just talking about how tight my jeans were on Instagram, and think that maybe I should try to amp up the greens. Hence the salad-a-day goal mentioned earlier🤣

Well, that’s it for today friends! Let me know in the comments if you’re planning on making any of these! I’m pretty sure I’m going to make that pumpkin hummus like, tomorrow! Have a very Happy Halloween!!

Friday Finds

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

I am very, very happy that this week is coming to a close – this week just felt so long! Some highlights from my week: taking a 305 Fitness dance cardio class with friends Tuesday night, visiting a pumpkin patch with my team at work, a fun meditation and breakfast event at Joe and the Juice, and starting A Handmaid’s Tale. So many good things!

I really cannot believe Halloween is almost here. You know that means too, like the second it’s over everyone is going to be crazy for the holidays! It’s also weird working in social media, or probably any retail company honestly, because we plan holiday stuff SO far in advance. It’s exciting, for sure, but almost makes time feel faster because we’re constantly talking about all of it! I can’t say I don’t love it, though. This time of year from autumn to Christmas is seriously my favorite!

Okay anywayyyyy, now that I’m done pretending you’re my diary, I’ll share some fun reads from the internet with you!

The Recipe for Erewhon’s Famous Paleo Bread – Never pay $16 a loaf again (although admittedly I never have and never will do that, anyway…😅)

How to Wash Your Sneakers So They Look Brand New Again – I have a pair of super cute pink New Balance’s that haven’t looked pink in awhile…anyone else?

Pumpkin Sangria – Making👏🏻 This👏🏻

A 34-Minute Interval Walking Treadmill Workout That’ll Help You Lose Weight – If you know me in real life, you know I LOVE walking on the treadmill at the highest incline! It’s my favorite way to workout when I’m feeling lazy or just want to move without going crazy. I’m not supposed to run (because of a back injury), so walking is a great way to get some cardio in!

6 Ways to Relieve Neck Tension – Umm 100% trying this tennis ball trick. Tension in my upper back/neck has been out of control lately!

12 Slow Cooker Meals to Make on Halloween Night – I’m 100% planning on staying in Halloween night with a glass of wine and some scary movies, so an easy slow cooker meal is PERFECT.

What are you Halloween plans?! I literally have zero festive things to do and no costume, and to be honest, I’m kind of okay with it…haha

I just wish I could still pass for a trick or treater. Oh, well!
