Spoiler Alert: My Cookbook is Out!

Spoiler Alert: My Cookbook is Out!

Ever get that feeling of being totally owned by your schedule?  Kind of like being tied to the back of a rampaging gorilla that’s really not cool with you being tied to its back? 

Sometimes this feeling occurs to me.  It probably means I need a self-help book on time management. 

Anyway, this is the part where I announce to you the wonderful reason I’ve been so terrible at posting anything consistently for a while…

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so very pleased to announce that today marks the official date that my very first cookbook is released!

YAY. 

I know I’ve been talking about it a bit, but this is kind of a lifelong dream come true here!  And I can tell you, it’s only the first big thing I’ll do this year.

Lani Muelrath is a plant-based-living and aerobics professional who has had personal success with staying 100% animal-product free for many years.  In her book, The Plant Based Journey, she addresses the “whys” of overhauling one’s diet into vegan territory, right before digging into the “hows.”

Quest Nutrition Giveaway {& Protein Cinnabun Recipe!}

Happy Monday, friends! Especially happy because Quest Nutrition is sending TWO people some excellent (fabulous) prizes!

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite brands, because they make delicious things that can help you stay on your healthy eating goals when you are out of the house or having a really busy week!  And baby, you better believe I'm with you on that need!

I always try to get 10-30 g of protein with every meal or snack, to keep me full and energized throughout the day.  It also helps my muscles rebuild after a workout.  I’m tough on them, but they repay me for my effort with a better metabolism!
