    Peanut Butter Raspberry Rice Cakes

    This week’s recipe of the week is a pre-or post-workout meal and it’s super easy – peanut butter raspberry topped rice cakes. I tried this when I got home from cardio day this past weekend and I’m loving it! It’s honestly quite a simple recipe and I’m not breaking any new ground here, but I love when I find a macro friendly and delicious food I love eating. It makes everything better! My rice cakes recipe also includes one of my favorite sweet treats, this AMAZING cookie filled trail mix that I get at my local grocery store. Use any trail mix or candy you like for a little extra sweetness,…

    Influenster Sprout VoxBox | Quick Reviews

    I recently received my second VoxBox from Influenster*, a website for bloggers and social media users. Basically you sign up for the site (free to anyone, not just bloggers and YouTubers) and based on your social media impact and preferences, the company sends you different products to try. I received my first one of these boxes around Christmas, shortly after I signed up for the site. In that box I received mostly makeup and a few other odds and ends. I’m happy to report that this time around I received products geared more towards a healthy lifestyle, fitness, and a few skin care items. I posted an update a while back explaining…

    Friday Favorites | 3.18.16

    Happy Friday! Last week, I was battling a cold and didn’t have the energy to put up a Friday Favorites. Honestly, I didn’t really have a lot of makeup or fitness loves last week since I slept as much as I could. Most of my favorites this week are makeup – nothing new on the fitness front to report. This weekend we’re getting ready to host the spring equinox party that we do every change of the season, just for fun. So much to get done yet on this Friday! Tarte Mariacuja Creasless Concealer* | I received this concealer as gratis a while ago and for a long time I didn’t know…

    Protein Pancakes & Banana Oatmeal Cookies

    Pancakes and cookies while on a cut? Sure – if they’re made to fit my macros! These are two super easy recipes to have on hand not just for a cut, but anytime you have a sweet tooth. PROTEIN PANCAKES Pancakes have always been my favorite breakfast item since I was little and my mom would make them the size of the plate. These aren’t quite as big when all said is done, but they’res still tasty! I’ve been making these pancakes for a while now and it can be modified with additional ingredients, like chocolate chips, cinnamon, peanut butter powder, sprinkles – whatever you like. 1/2 C cottage cheese…

    Friday Favorites | 2.19.16

    Welcome weekend – I’m happy you’re here! This weekend, we’re having our postponed Valentine’s Day due to the little illness I had last weekend and then I’m having brunch with some old coworkers on Sunday. Still trying to decide what to make, but I do hope there’s mimosas! BEAUTY |  After searching for a new tinted moisturizer and not finding what I was looking for, I decided to look through my collection hoping to find something good to use. The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer was my go-to a few summers ago, and it’s been great now. The product lasts all day with a good powder and setting spray, has decent coverage, and is…
