Recipe Friday: Shrimp Cauliflower Fried Rice

I really love rice and I must admit, I’ve really missed rice during our time on the Whole 30.  However, cauliflower rice has been an awesome substitute.  It has the bulk and consistency of rice, but it’s cauliflower! One bummer about cauliflower rice is the amount of prep it takes. It takes awhile to break down the cauliflower, and “rice” it in the food processor.  And don’t even get me started on the mess.  Those... Read More

A Healthy Change

The past few months have been all about big changes.  We tied the knot, I changed my last name, and we are starting the process of purchasing a home.  Somewhere in between all of those major life events we dramatically changed our lifestyle and made a conscious decision to be healthier people, and adopted a plant based, whole foods diet. After a particularly indulgent holiday, we sat down on January 3 and talked about our goals for the New Year. ... Read More

Summer Break, Broken Computer

Hi There, It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?  I could wax on about being busy and not having time to blog.  But the main culprit of my absence was the star-crossed romance of these two lovers. It took awhile to fix my laptop, and then right when I got it back it broke again (a non-liquid related break the second time around!) But now, finally, we are back in business!  Here is a recap of what Ben and I did this summer while I was on my... Read More
