What the Research Says About How to Support a Healthy Gut Microbiome

Working on a thesis is not what I expected (separate post on this to come). I have been researching the human gut microbiome for some time now, and I feel like the more I learn, the less I know. That is simply because, even with all of the hype around the gut microbiome and all… Continue reading What the Research Says About How to Support a Healthy Gut Microbiome

Chewy, Gooey, Paleo Blondies

I used to bake almost everyday. It was a hobby, a passion, a little thing that made my heart sing every time I did it. But then, I sort of just stopped.

Healthy Fried Rice + the Whole Egg Super Food

Moving is never a fun task. It's something we all do at least once, at one time or another in life. It's stressful, exhausting, a pretty good workout and often you lose your favorite pair of shoes (or something else you really like). I just moved last Saturday. Things are still in boxes.
