Resources for Women’s Health + Gyno Tips

A trip to the gynecologist is anything but at the top of my to do list. It’s not something I go to for enjoyment, though provides necessary yearly data to ensure all my eggs are in a row (insert side smirk). While I now have a very pleasant relationship with my doctor, it can be incredibly frustrating to see someone who totally depreciates your beliefs and morals, and presents a single option for a plethora of problems. Irregular periods?

Taza Dark Bark S’mores

I have truthfully never been a fan of marshmallows. I’ve used this excuse as a vehicle for justification for doubling up on the amount of chocolate for every s’more I’ve ever made. While I did craft a tasty substitute for marshmallows in this recipe, I still hold fast to my personal philosophy of doubling up on chocolate, especially because this time I’m using Taza Chocolate’s new Dark Bark, which packs just a little extra crunchy flavor PUNch.

Meal Prep

I think there’s a certain dance that comes with getting a meal prep down. Timing things so they’re done at the same time as other things and cleaning in between to reduce overall time spent on it all. I’ve been working with my sister on this, who is tragically lost in the realm of meal prepping. So I’m sharing some tips below to (hopefully) put a little p(r)ep in your step, too!

Dark Chocolate Almond Cheesecake Bars

Dark Chocolate Almond Cheesecake Bars

When I was younger, my mom used to make the most unbelievable magic bars. The ones with the caramel and almonds and coconut and chocolate with just a sprinkle of, you guessed it, magic. Having since discovered my dairy sensitivity, the heavy cream that was a showcased ingredients likely wouldn’t make my stomach feel so magic, or my joints for that matter (when I consume dairy, I feel the oddest pain in my knees and shoulders, which is

Chocolate Coconut Bites

Chocolate Coconut Bites

When I was in college, Almond Joys when hungover were my weakness. The chocolate and coconut flavors soothed my soul. There is no logic behind this and I 100% never felt better after their consumption and yet they still remain one of my favorite flavor profiles. I fancied up the recipe and made them into bite sized form to nibble on throughout the week. Except with these ones I 100% do feel better after their consumption. ConsYUMption. Recipe

In My Fridge

I’ll be moving shortly, and will have to start over with most foodstuffs. This can seem overwhelming, so I wanted to create a guide for myself and readers of how to get back to basics. Here are a few staples that are oftentimes in my fridge for eating, drinking, and nibbling.

My Food Feelosophy

When the messages like “are you vegetarian?” “are you vegan?” “are you paleo?” “are you raw before 4” “do you eat eggs?” “do you eat chicken periods (another word for eggs)?” “do you eat chicken?” “do you eat fish?” “do you eat camel?” (JK to that last one) – I want to bop them down like playing a voracious game of whack o mole. This level of food choice invasiveness comes with the territory and I know that.

Collagen

Collagen

Collagen is everywhere right now, and has been for awhile. So is it worth it / is it all just a hype man? I was originally skeptical about the rage that is collagen. I had heard that it’s too large of a molecule to even be absorbed. And if it is absorbed, does the body even break it down and reabsorb it as collagen? Or just as a simple protein? If the latter is the case, then it’d

Cashew Chipotle Sauce

And just when I post a recipe last night about cashew overload, I chase it with yet another cashew based recipe. I am now realizing the redunDANCY of my ways, but this dip just makes me want to get dancey. Perfect for a dip or a topping. I tend to make at least one dip per week, as these really add variety and pizzazz to my meals. Grab the recipe below!
