My Vegetarian Story

I’ve been wanting to share my vegetarian story for a while now, but never got around to it, but I finally thought that it was about time. Just to clear a few things up first, vegetarian is defined as someone who does not eat meat and vegan is someone who avoids all animal products as a whole. Glad we cleared all that up…now here’s my story. Growing up, I was the BIGGEST meat eater ever. I was that person who freaking brought steak in a bag to school for lunch. My personal favorite foods were carne asada tacos, pastrami sandwiches, steak, and lamb chops…mmm lamb…

Matcha Latte

Matcha lattes have easily become one of my FAVORITE drinks.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Happy Tuesday! It’s weird to be posting on a Tuesday (or at all, recently) because I never do. Today, I want to talk about a topic that I’ve never really discussed on my blog. That topic is…weight. Weight is a very sensitive topic to most people (I think), including myself. I don’t like to talk about it often because it is so sensitive and I’m also relatively sensitive about my own weight. I thought I’d open up a little and talk about my weight…scary. So you know how over the summer everyone has their so-called “bikini body” or at least…

How to Stay Healthy When Traveling

Staying healthy when traveling seems nearly impossible when you’re surrounded by buffets, drinks, and desserts. Honestly, how can anyone resist all of that? How can anyone stay healthy? The answer. Well when you’re with my mom, you can’t. As much as she tries and blames our overindulgence and overeating on me, it’s ALL HER… not kidding. However, luckily for all of you (except my dad…hi Shmarkit), you’re not traveling with my mom, so staying healthy might actually be a whole lot easier. Here are some of my top tips to make sure your vacation doesn’t turn into you completely falling off the health wagon. Staying…
