I’m excited about our April Propel Ambassador assignments. We were asked to share 2 of our favorite workouts to do in our hometown. Today I’m talking about my favorite running route in Minneapolis. I haven’t done this particular route in a few months because I no longer live in the city (when I went to the U of M I lived pretty close to downtown), but it was good to get my booty back to my old stomping grounds this week.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Cake

I wanted to start off by wishing my favorite brother a HAPPY 20th birthday! I can’t believe you are STILL exactly 4 years younger than I am. That was a joke. You will always be EXACTLY 4 years younger than me even if it seems like we’re getting closer in age every single day!

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. I THOUGHT good ol’ Benjamin Franklin said that quote, but according to Google so did 100 other important people. Make me 101. 


Copycat PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I don’t think I’ve met a single person who didn’t like PF Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps (vegetarians- YOU ARE MISSING OUT!). These are THE perfect  way to start a meal…or be a meal for that matter. Low carb (minus the rice, which I just had to add due to my obsession with sticky rice lately)…

Super Tasty Asian Salmon

I finally finished re-categorizing every single recipe on the blog so that they show up organized and pretty in my recipe section. This required me to categorize them (because these didn’t transfer over form Blogger), set a featured image, and reformat the post because the spacing got wacked! While going through all 500+ posts, I…

Ya’ll know I love me a good single serve recipe! It was one of those days where I was craving something sweet for lunch, so I told myself if I was a good girl and ate some veggies, a whole grain, and leftover salmon, that I would make myself something chocolatey!
