(Oh, hello! It’s been a while. I hate going this long without blogging, but sometimes life gets in the way.)

working on the Thailand post. All blogging was put on hold for a while, but I’m trying to gather my thoughts. If there is anything in particular you’re curious about, let me know!

crafting!!! Not really, but making my own food photography backgrounds. Or attempting is probably a better word.

doing lots of fun research: chilaquiles!

working on some backend blog stuff. My site should be faster for you all now, and I apologize that it has been so slow lately. Ugh.

eating at PettyCash Taqueria. It’s a beautiful space with creative nachos: pig ear and a vegetarian crispy kale and cauliflower. So it means we’ve been there twice already and have tried both nacho varieties.

stitch fix

trying out stitch fix. (affiliate link!) I’ve always been curious about this “online personal styling service” and since I’ve been seriously hating everything in my closet, it was time to try it out! I’ve only gotten one “fix” so far but was pleasantly surprised. A lot of the things I’ve seen in reviews aren’t my style so I honestly wasn’t expecting much. I ended up keeping one sweater (that I love) and would have kept a few other items but they didn’t fit right/were a little too much money. Getting surprise clothes in the mail is amazing. :)

social media, social media, social media! I put together a presentation for work and then did a slew of learn.ist boards on social media for business. It was really fun.

Cinco de Mayo Inspiration | A Nutritionist Eats

cinco de mayo inspiration

When we were in Thailand (I know, I need to fill you in!) we fell into a consistent schedule of breakfast–>beach–>lunch–>pool–>snack–>sunset-at-beach bar–>shower–>dinner. Notice a theme there? Lots of food. It was totally my kind of vacation. And while I absolutely loved the fresh shrimp salads I ate on a daily basis (usually during the snack

Quinoa & Arugula Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette | A Nutritionist Eats

quinoa & arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette

I came home from Thailand with some serious inspiration to start making big ol’ pots of grains and beans. And that is precisely what I did. In a jet-lagged haze I made lentils, black beans (which I wayyyyyy overcooked) and quinoa. At five in the morning. Does anyone else have trouble cooking beans? I don’t

5 trader joe’s meals (5 ingredients or less!)

Deep question of the day: where do you guys grocery shop? I tend to shop based on proximity, but the store has to have the natural and organic selection of foods I’m looking for or it just won’t work. In my current neighborhood (West Hollywood!) there are quite a few options within walking distance. I

Whole-Grain Oat Muffins | A Nutritionist Eats

whole-grain oat muffins

(We just returned from Thailand and I can’t wait to tell you more about it – it was absolutely amazing!) Ok, I’m usually an anti-muffin person. Why? Because most of the time they run a fine line. They’re either essentially a cupcake or they’re so healthy that they don’t resemble anything close to an actual

5 Plant Based (Vegan) Recipes | A Nutritionist Eats

5 plant-based (vegan) recipes

With Earth Day right around the corner, I’m making a conscious effort to think about my impact on this amazing earth of ours. I grew up in a family who recycled religiously, reused sour cream containers (and sugar bags for lunch bags – which was SO embarrassing!) and even composted. So at a young age,

new product favorites (april)

hampton creek just mayo. I bought this because I thought it was real, homemade mayo. Turns out it is vegan mayo. I contemplated taking it back to Whole Foods because I’m not usually a huge fan of vegan mayo, but figured I’d give it a try. It was DELICIOUS. And sorry honey, I never told
