    Homemade Dairy-free Coffee Creamer

      Coffee. GAME CHANGER!! I’ve created the perfect dairy free creamer that’s just subtly sweet – making your coffee creamy and delicious and giving it just a subtle touch of sweetness.. aka it still tastes like coffee, not straight up SUGAR! It’s dairy free, and only gets it’s sweetness naturally from dates – as opposed to the ones in the grocery store that are stocked full of sugar & ingredients your body doesn’t even recognize!! AND it comes with a bonus recipe at the end: coffee-chip pecan bites!! Dairy Free Caramelly Pecan Coffee Creamer Sorry that’s a mouth full – LOL *You will need to soak Pecans overnight for this…

    College Life – why living at school just wasn’t for me

    I grew up constantly hearing about was how amazing my brother’s college experience was – how it was the best four years of his life, how he made the most amazing friends, had the most amazing experiences, and would do it all again in a heartbeat if he could. My brother went to college when I was 3, almost 4, so when I say I heard about this my whole life…I mean it. My brother has always been my biggest role model. I’ve looked up to him my whole life and have always wanted to be just like him. Because of this, living at college was always the plan for me. When…

    Cookie Dough Bites

    Out of ALLL of the recipes i have ever made – this has to be my favorite. I know, I know, bold statement but TRUE. My whole family loves them, even my brother.. which is very rare that he likes something of mine. Now, he checks the freezer every time he’s ever to see if I have a stash of them, and last time he was at my house he took the whole bag of them home with him LOL. So, as you can probably guess these are delissssh if I do say myself. But I’ll let you be the judge….   Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites INGREDIENTS – *Makes about 10, depending on size of…

    SIBO Series – Finally, an update!!

    Hi guys!! I FINALLY have a SIBO update for you – I know, I know.. it’s been a while. When I originally started the SIBO Series on my blog, I had planned to give more frequent updates, but I quickly realized that there were no updates to give. (If you’re unfamiliar with SIBO and the diet I have been following, read Post 1, Post 2, and Post 3, before this one).     My holistic nutritionist never made any big changes to my protocol, and nothing much was changing with how I felt physically or mentally, so I just didn’t have anything to say. I’ve been following this SIBO “protocol” (if you even want to call…

    Busier doesn’t = BETTER

    Heading into this weekend I realized that I had nothing to do. Absolutely nothing. Nowhere I needed to be, no one I had plans with, nothing important that had to get done. I can’t remember the last weekend that I didn’t have at least one thing to be at or to do. You would think that I’d be so excited to have a few open days and embrace the fact that I could just do whatever I wanted. But for some reason.. the nothingness made me anxious. What was I going to fill my time with? I like to be busy. It’s weird because I get overwhelmed if I have too much…
