Butternut Squash Soup {DIY Recipe}

So I am by no means a great cook, but one thing I can make is butternut squash soup.  And I only say this because my husband told me so:)  Thanks to Pinterest (yes, I actually made something that I found on Pinterest!) I found this delicious recipe for butternut squash soup complete with bacon… because as we all know, bacon makes everything taste better. Duh.

This recipe is from good old Martha Stewart, so you know it’s amazing and — believe me — it is pretty easy to make! I have a new baby so I’m not spending …

The Only Time You’ll *Really* Crave a Salad {Greens Up!}

True story: when I first heard that Greens Up! was coming to my area, I screamed… at. work. (not my finest moment)

IMG_1213IMG_1213

When Brett + I lived in Santa Monica, our apartment was spitting distance from this place on Montana Ave — and we took advantage of its close proximity weekly.  This fast-casual joint that serves salad only is anything but boring.

The Jarvis salad {romaine, roasted turkey, croutons, tomato, smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, bleu cheese, and a roasted garlic dressing} is …

Best of…SUP Rentals {local.fitness}

Happy Work-It-Wednesday!

Can you believe that this weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer [Memorial Day]?!  I, for one, can’t wait to spend some more time at the beach.  Paddle boarding is one of my favorite ocean activities — not only because it’s a great workout, but it’s also a fun to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful beaches of the 805.  Don’t stress about buying that huge SUP from Costco — there are so many places in the area to rent and take lessons!

Tasty + Trim Breakfast Boost {DIY Recipe}

I used to love to bake, but then I had a baby — and now I can barely find time to take a shower, let alone bake something anymore. But, the other day I had some bananas that were getting a little too ripe, so instead of throwing them away I decided to try to make something with them.

I was also looking for something more on the healthy side (I’ve got some baby weight to lose!) and so of course, I set off to Pinterest in search of a yummy, healthy, banana-something recipe.

Luckily, I came across Banana Oat Greek Yogurt Muffins from Running with Spoons, …
