So, shamefully, I’ve been away for over a year and a half. My “going natural” pretty much took a nose-dive. I can’t remember why, precisely. But I’m sure chocolate and fast food were involved. But recently my husband and I have decided that we both need to drop a few pounds and try to… Continue reading One-Pan Chicken and Vegetables
I’m not entirely sure why, but a few months ago, I developed a severe craving for Waldorf Salad. I bet I’d eaten it probably once in my entire life, so I really struggle to understand what precipitated the craving. I hadn’t even seen it on television or anything.

Don’t get me wrong, I love other things, too. Salty and savory are awesome. But sweets are a major downfall of mine. Depression, boredom, PMS,… Continue reading So, where to begin? (A confession…)

It wasn’t substantial at first, but has gotten worse since I graduated college. My biggest weight gain can easily be connected to two things.
