Superfood salad

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope you’re having a wonderful week. New post on the family page up here. <3

A highlight of our week: getting to catch up with our friends Michele and Dave! We’ve known them since the Valdosta days, and were so excited that they made a trip up here to San Diego. We met up with them + our friend Adam for dinner at Prepkitchen in Little Italy. 

Prep kitchen

We shared some appetizers (cheese board, bacon-wrapped dates) and I rolled with the chicken for my entree. It was served with a sweet potato gratin that I’m determined to replicate soon. While the food was good, the best part was catching up with everyone. I love when you can pick right up where you left off. 🙂 After dinner, we headed down to Whiskey House, which we’d never checked out. The boys were in whiskey heaven.

It always makes my heart so happy to see this girl. It’s hard to believe that we first met for a puppy play date at the dog park, and now our human kiddos are also friends.

This morning, we’re all off to play at the beach, but in the meantime, I wanted to share my latest salad obsession with you guys!

One kale salad base, three different salads

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I have a massage today that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks.

Chocolate protein donuts

Hi friends! How’s the day going? It was a miracle of happiness when all of the girl slept in until 8am this morning. I woke up and was like, “Where am I? What just happened?!” and it was probably the most beautiful thing ever. Needless to say, I think we were all a little zonked […]

Crispy shrimp, rice, and veggies with soy ginger sauce

Sounds good, right? Being pregnant and becoming a mom changed me in a lot of ways. Yes, it made me more patient, my heart more full, and my days more busy (yet fun!). Oh, and it made me like fried food. Like, a lot. When I was pregnant, even though many people said it was […]

The Crazy Elvis

(grain-free, dairy-free and INSANELY delicious) You guys. I can’t even tell you about this dessert. You just have to look. And see.  And taste. And make any sound effects that you so desire. I first got the idea for this recipe at The Patio on Lamont. It’s one of our favorite spots to meet with […]

Soft and healthy oatmeal peanut butter cookies

Sometimes you just need a cookie. (or four…) I was really hankering for cookies the other night, and since my little sous chef is always willing to help me bake, I thought it would be fun to sneak off to the kitchen to make some cookies.  As far as the cookies go, I’ll let the […]
