The Importance of Challenging Your Beliefs

Seeing is believing.

Not so fast. In today’s world, I think there is a lot more ‘believing is seeing’ going on. Especially when it comes to people’s core beliefs and opinions.importance-of-challenging-your-beliefs

More and more I see people closing their minds to other perspectives and differing ideas because of their dogmatic beliefs that their way or their understanding is correct. In our day and age, can you really blame them?

Top Five Back to College Essentials

[Last day to enter my $500 Shopping Spree Giveaway to Thrive Market!]

This time next week I’ll be back in school. Classes will be in full swing for my senior year of college! I really can’t believe that four years has come and gone as fast as it has. High school felt like an eternity, but college? Over in a blink of an eye! I have to say I am pretty excited to be wrapping up my Bachelor’s Degree. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it and that I didn’t learn a lot but, I just have so much more of clearer picture now of what I want to do in the future. So I am excited to graduate and start working towards that rather than on a degree that I probably won’t use very much.

If you know me, you know I love protein powder! I use it a few times a day and often bake with it. I’ve tried a ton of different varieties and flavor, but the kind I always come back to as my favorite is whey. It’s naturally sweet, works perfectly in baked goods, and has amazing texture in things like power bowls and smoothies. Does anyone else not like mixing their protein powder in to their liquids? I like it powdery! :)

Recipe Redux #22: Gluten-Free Vegan Peach Scones

It’s peach season once again! Gather around the table for a healthy breakfast or snack with these Gluten-Free Vegan Peach Scones. They’re full of fresh peach flavor and are a healthy spin on a traditional baked good. 

Ahhhh peach season. A truly cherished time in my household. Not only is it my dad’s favorite fruit and the star of his favorite dessert (peach cobbler), but my mom and I are big fans as well! There’s something so special about biting into a fresh, ripe, juicy peach. Or in my case an under ripe one. I like them slightly hard!
