Some foods in my life are what you’d call ESSENTIAL. Some because I love them, and others because they provide my body with amazing nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

Foods of the Moment: Simple Snacks

Hi friends! Hope your New Year’s celebrations were fun and festive! I am a bundle of excitement over here because, on Tuesday I got the final word on my injury.

So I am totally clear to do any and all activity I please. I’ve already tested the water with running (totally pain-free) and I am excited to slowly (slowly being the key word) build up my endurance and speed again. And I cannot wait to get back to yoga next week! My body is CRAVING it.
