Let me tell you the store of how I came to write this post about LaCroix. I love LaCroix. Everyone around me knows I love LaCroix because I basically have one on me at all times. I quite often get questions about "the weird thing I'm drinking." It's just sparkling water lightly flavored with essential oils from fruits. No sweetener, no artificial stuff. There are two reasons I drink LaCroix: It makes me drink water. I don't dislike water, I just can't get myself to drink enough . . .
Ohmygoodness I have so much I want to talk to you guys about right now. I'm brimming with super important blog post ideas, but they will take time to write about well so they will get put off for a bit. Mainly because I'm pretty swamped right now. Pathology is a super cool class, but 9-5 class plus what seems like events or meetings every single night has left me wiped! Weekends this month are really busy too. This weekend was Mardi Gras and today the Super Bowl, plus my little brother and . . .
Our Pathology course started this week. I was very much looking forward to it as it is highly reviewed by older students. I'm less than a week in, but here are my thoughts so far: 1.Oh, hello histology. Didn't realize I was supposed to remember you. How people can see a picture of a bunch of cells and immediately determine what organ it is and what's wrong with it is beyond me. Hopefully I'll get there one day! By my test tomorrow would be ideal. 2. Pathology is pretty awesome. Not . . .
I mentioned in my "last week's workouts and meals" post that my stomach was starting to get a little upset again due to my more relaxed eating habits (cough beer and chocolate and pizza all the time cough.) Eating "well" for me is a little different than for others because it's more about eating in a way that helps my digestion as opposed to eating foods that I think are super nutritious or the "right" things to eat. I've found that low-fodmap really works best for me, though I can tolerate some . . .
You love Larabars right? I don't know anyone that doesn't. They re such a great snack made with just a few real food ingredients that somehow taste amazing. I also love that the company doesn't hesitate to teach you how to make the bars yourself, which to me says that they value nutrition and quality food over just making a buck. (Check out some how-to videos here.) The mission of Larabar is to make real food accessible for all. Since 1 in 7 Americans are at risk of hunger, Larabar is . . .
Hi friends! I had a final for pharmacology on Friday (it was SO HARD), but the bright side is that means I had a whole weekend off! I spent some time at the outlets -- bought nothing but tried on this amazing BCBG gown -- babysat the most adorable kids, enjoyed our amazing 60 degree weather and go lots of shopping and meal prep done. I'm all set to start out February and Pathology with a bang. Here's what last week looked like: Last Week's Workouts: Mon: Boxing at Title. Tues: 60 . . .
Two nights ago I finished up my studying a little early and took the night off for an amazing dinner and a movie. First, this impromptu no-recipe dinner that you need to make immediately: (for those that read earlier and it said goat cheese, i'm just an idiot, this was totally made with feta) Pasta with Shrimp and Feta: Ingredients: pasta (I used rice pasta because I had it) shrimp (peeled, no tail -- enough for however many you're feeding) red bell pepper a few cups of . . .
Who saw it coming?? Love Grown Foods, my absolute favorite oatmeal, granola, and cereal company (Cocoa Goodness and Strawberry Raspberry Hot Oats lover over here) came out with KIDS cereal for all our #littleloves! How cute are these?? Like their regular cereals, these are made with BEANS and are wheat free, GMO free and vegan. I sent my package of them off with LB to give to her niece and nephews so they could have a super fun but healthy breakfast and am totally bringing them to my . . .
Hey guys! Loved the response on my last post about dating. I was written semi-serious, semi-tongue-in-cheek, but you guys either totally agreed or were like "GET IT TOGETHER GIRL!":) This weekend was pretty fun! We had a big auction on Friday night to support the free clinic SLU med runs, and then Saturday I did a workout with friends around lunch and had a group dinner party at night. Today is all about Church and studying, with some glorious yoga thrown in. This week is our last of the . . .
I'm 28 and unmarried and I think dating is the worst. I love being in relationships. I love having someone. I have been called a "serial dater" more than once. But I have learned things from my past relationships-gone-bad that have changed the way I date - I learned more about myself and what I want and need in a relationship as well as about how to be a better partner to someone else. Ever since a rough breakup with someone I truly thought I might marry, I've begun to take dating very . . .
