Italian-Style Spinach & Tomato Quinoa

by Courtney on March 2, 2011


I am absolutely loving today’s eats. Not because I tried one new food…but two new foods! The first one came at breakfast: Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Seeds! Many of you have probably already tried and are already loving chia seeds, but I’m just finally jumping on the bandwagon. I love how they’re such a great source of Omega-3’s, […]


Like A Ton Of Bricks…

by Courtney on August 17, 2010


I am stressed. Today, reality came crashing down on me like a ton of bricks. I have come to accept the fact that the next few weeks of my life are going to be intense, busy, and crazy. For one, you may or may not be aware that I am a teacher. This past year, […]


Where Does The Time Go?

It Rocks My Socks

I did a repeat of yesterday, by adding some more of my roasted veggies, […]


Are You "Jellin"?

by Courtney on June 1, 2010

As much as I enjoy weekends full of barbecues, treats, and other fun eats, it definitely puts me a little on the sluggish side.  It’s amazing how much of a difference I feel when I don’t get my typical veggie/fruit/healthy protein intake.  Knowing in advance that tonight’s dinner is going to be similar to this […]


Anyone Got A Sandwich?

by Courtney on May 27, 2010

When it came time for lunch today, I wasn’t super excited about it.  I was craving a sandwich – any kind of sandwich – but just the thought of having some combo of veggies + protein in between two yummy, carby slices of bread sounded SO good.  Unfortunately, what I packed today was anything but […]
