I’ve gotta be honest: I struggle to make recipes that aren’t breakfast. We’ve talked about breakfast before. I love breakfast; I LIVE for breakfast; anything that isn’t breakfast is just a stepping stone on the way to my next breakfast. I’ve never understood people who go without eating breakfast. I’m like… aren’t you hungry and sad, though? Don’t you know what you’re missing?
I am all about breakfast. I’m sure you’ve noticed. If I could make this a breakfast-only blog, I’d probably do that. Unfortunately, I think that might be too narrow a niche, so I’ll just have to limit myself to, like, 60% breakfast food, 40% everything else. I’m usually not big on indulgent breakfasts; platefuls of sugar and thick, creamy sausage gravy are fine on very rare occasions. Typically, I love a well-spiced, easy-to-make, savory breakfast that’s chock-full of plant protein. This Southwest Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash is one such breakfast.
Ok, so it’s story time. This week, I went to my favorite place on earth (more commonly known as the farmers market) and picked up these absolutely gorgeous peas. See below for photographic proof of said absolutely gorgeous peas.
This week, after two and a half years of eating mindfully, I finally reached my goal weight. That means that I’m 22 pounds down from where I was at my heaviest in 2014. Exciting, right? I felt like I should have been excited when I stepped on the scale, but then I came to the staggering realization that, even though I focused on getting there for so long, I just didn’t care about that number anymore. Why?
Hi, everyone! Good to see you again! It’s been a while! Did you miss me? I thought so. Don’t worry though; I’m back. I took this weekend off to relax and go camping with Kyle because I FINALLY GRADUATED! I’ve been working my bum off for 5 years, and now I can finally say that I’m a college grad. It feels good, y’all, and also a little bit terrifying. I’ve been a student for the past 17 years of my life, so it’s kinda scary to think that now I have to build a whole new routine from the ground up. But the world is my oyster, and ultimately, I’m excited. Stay tuned for life updates!
Happy Friday, everyone! Today I’m sharing with you an incredible vegan recipe that just might convince even the staunchest carnivore to incorporate a few more plants into their day. I dreamed up this southwestern-inspired dish after a family barbecue that ended up with waaaay too much leftover corn. I didn’t get to use that corn (sad face) but in the future, I know what I’ll be doing with it!
