To PA or not to PA – that is the question

Earlier this week, I was taken off the waitlist at a PA program, and struggled with the decision of whether or not to attend. After deep considering (and SO much help from Instagram homies), I have officially decided to accept. And I couldn’t be more thrilled. Here are some of the arguments for both sides, which I hope will help guide others’ decision, as it so dramatically helped mine.

HAPPY GALENTINE’S DAY!! FEMPOWERMENT!

It is no secret that I am a Parks and Rec afficianado. It has been my favorite tv show for awhile, most notably because I am so inspired by Leslie Knope. She is passionate, powerful, driven, and loves her galpals so hard. The most immediate way I have implemented her moral tenets into my life is though Galentine’s day: the day before valentine’s day when you appreciate the powerful and wonderful women in your life.

Coconut Cashew Beet No-Bake Cookies

The title of this post is just a fancy name for fat cookies. Yes, fat. Fu**ing Amazing Things. This is because they are made entirely from sources of saturated and unsaturated fats, with no added fruits or sugars, with a little kick of collagen (protein) and maca (SEXUAL VALENTINES DAY THINGS). I am simply inFATuated with them.

Detox + a giveaway

I would like to start off this post with the declaration of the fact that I have an issue with the word detox. It has somehow morphed into a idea synonymous with juice cleanse and deprivation and other marketing ploys to make you feel guilty about eating.

When things get (t)rough(le), truffle it out. That’s pretty much all I have to say about that.

PPFish burgers

The title of this recipe is indeed a bit fishy. ***pppppffff*** reminds me of the sound of disbelief, and you may indeed be in disbelief of this recipe, considering it’s made with granola instead of bread crumbs. PPF (Paleo Passion Foods) granola to be exact, hence the double meaning of the PPF. They’re a little sweet, a little savory, a little spicy and a lotta good.  Plus, they’re entirely gluten and grain free and low in sugar thanks to

Vegetable soba noodle stir fry

I included a meal like this in one of my meal plans (I think this one), and it’s another one of minimal effort, minimal brain power kind of ordeals. Like when you get home from work and just can’t (or)deal to break out the Pinterest creativity. Grab some veggies, some frozen edamame, some soba noodles and some sauce and you’re good to go. so easy. so quick. SO BAe.

Veggie Egg Bake

This recipe is so simple, such a staple, and just downright seggsy. If you ever find yourself with leftover vegetables and zero creative power for meal making, this is your savior, your light in the darkness. I also usually eat it right out of the pan, meaning minimal clean up.

chamomile!! As you may have seen on my stories, one of my lectures this week focused on the properties and benefits of chamomile. It is used to soothe symptoms of constipation, IBS,  and GERD, as it appeases farting prblmz, motion sickness, nervous diarrhea, nasal congestion, restlessness, anxiety, teething, and dysmennorrhea. It is used clinically for anxiety (reduces anxiety and depression scores), eczema (cream with chamomile improved symptoms), wound healing (topical chamomile reduces wound size by day 4 compared
