Of Bread and Butter

Butter is now a growing trend in America. The science of fat is evolving and our eating habits are changing because of it.

Where I Stumble

It's lovingly called the "Bacon Diet", which might imply that it's simply one of the best diets around (in the event that you are a meat-eater). It makes Keto sound simple, flavorful, and hearty, and for the most part, it is. But then you go outside your home and realize you can't afford to eat steak everywhere.

I [heart] Almonds!

There was a point when I first started this diet when I thought I wasn't going to make it. I wasn't going to last a week, let alone years.

So we decided to give it a go.

Out of the Cabinet: Chipotle

Sometimes, but not often, being addicted to something isn't terribly bad. However, the unfortunate thing is that the world might still want to get between you and your true love. Such as a few nights ago when I really wanted Chipotle, but between having limited money and crazy amounts of snow, my only choice was to put on my apron and get to work.

The Journey So Far

So many people in the world today would say they want to lose weight, but only a few truly make the life changes necessary to do so. I want to be one of those few people.

Review: Jawbone's "UP" Band (1st Gen)

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

After wearing one for about a month, I'm going to pass some judgement on this popular fitness tech.

The Jawbone "UP" band is a fitness bracelet that tracks movement and sleep, then connects to a mobile device via the headphone jack in order to by synced with their UP application (on Android and iOS). It is charged via USB every 10 days and is meant to be worn at all times.
