    What I Eat in A Day!

    Hello! I have been meaning to do a “what I eat in a day” type of post for a while, but I always end up forgetting to photograph my food (in my case, the camera does not eat first). This time around, I thought I’d give it a go! I generally have a routine when it comes to food on workdays, and that’s the most reflective of my diet right now. Weekends are more of a free for all because of sleeping in/staying up later, ordering takeout or baking. Because of my weekday routine, I’m more intentional about what I’m eating and try to maintain a healthy diet as much…

    Holiday Baking & Cookie Boxes

    December is in full swing, and you know what that means? Holiday baking! It’s been a while since I’ve done a more personal post. I hope everyone is able to safely celebrate the upcoming holidays, or at least take some time off to rest, do something you love doing, or indulge in some sweet treats (take a peek here if you want some ideas). The December holiday season is the best, especially for baking. Chocolate, gingerbread, peppermint… Christmas flavors are some of my favorites! I’ve seen so many adorable baking creations on Instagram — from creative cakes, brownies, and chocolates. I’m more of a cookie fan, so you’ll always find…

    Have you started shopping for holiday presents yet? Normally, I tend to wait until the last minute to shop for presents, but given this year the holidays are going to look a little different, I wanted to plan ahead to make sure my gifts will arrive in time. One of my goals when buying gifts is to be thoughtful and intentional. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t consider myself a good gift giver. I extensively go back and forth on my ideas for weeks… that’s probably why I end up getting them at the last minute. One factor to consider is how to support small and/or local businesses. It’s so…

    5 Delicious Smoothies to Satisfy Your Cravings

    Saying I love smoothies is quite the understatement. Smoothies are one of my favorite drinks — I can have them at any time of the day and they are SO versatile! I used to drink them a lot when I’m on the go, or after a workout but ever since I’ve been working from home, I’ve made a smoothie almost daily as my mid-day snack to get in some extra fruit, veggies, and protein into my day. I swear, I’ve become best friends with my nutribullet. I have enjoyed getting creative with all the different combinations of ingredients and flavors. However, once I find a combination that I love, I’m…

    Healthy(ish) Red Velvet Cake Pops

    I think I’ve been channeling more of my energy into baking projects as a distraction from the world’s stimuli. As I mentioned before, I have been feeling quite drained this past while, and I needed the ultimate pick-me-up. I’ve also noticed I have a greater desire to emotionally eat. I wanted to try something a little unconventional than the usual cookies, cakes and brownies: cake pops! Granted, you could just get one from Starbucks, but considering how I resort to sweets for emotional satiety, I’m still actively trying to bake goodies that are healthy but don’t compromise in taste. Besides, this was a perfect weekend mini-project to get in the…
