I shared my typical, weekly grocery haul from Trader Joe’s on Monday (you can read HERE), so today I wanted to tell you some things I eat in a typical week! You may have read my post a few weeks ago that I am doing a macro-tracking diet called Stronger U (you can read about that HERE), so I don’t usually make recipes, but instead I cook a lot of different things separately that I can build into meals (and easily track my macros).  I will update you soon on how the diet is going (in short, I’m obsessed).  Today I’m going to share some things I eat regularly.  I definitely tend to eat the same few things over and over!  […]

Guess what?  I’m trying a new diet. The vegan thing in January wasn’t really a ‘diet,’ it was more like an experiment.  We wanted to see if Lance’s blood pressure would go down and hey, if we lost weight in the process that would […]

My Favorite Charlotte Restaurants

Patio at Foxcroft Wine Co.  Image via AmericasCuisine.com. Happy Friday!  I had a request a while back to round up my favorite places to eat in Charlotte, so here they are, just in time for the weekend.  I LOVE food (too much), so this was a fun one to write and made me really hungry!  I honestly complain about the food scene in Charlotte, but after writing this list, it made me realize we have some pretty legit restaurants.  I definitely tend to stick with what I know, and all of these below are in the rotation.  Lance and I also make a list of new places to try each year, so I have listed those below as well. Soul Gastrolounge […]
