San Diego Recap & What My Ideal Vacation Really Is

I feel like most people write vacation recap posts literally the day after they return because they’re SO excited to share everything, but I’m slow. My brain needs time to process. Also, I honestly just didn’t know if I should bother posting it or not. Will anyone even read it? Like I talked about in my blog a few weeks ago, it seems like people don’t really pay attention to diary-style posts anymore. Then I realized – I truly do not care. I love both reading and writing these kinds of posts, so I’M GOING TO POST THEM. Now that…

Oven Roasted Celery Fries (Paleo, Vegan, Whole 30)

CELERY FRIES! These are my most recent obsession, for a number of reasons. I’ve been talking about roasted celery on Instagram for awhile now, and everyone always asks me to post the exact “recipe.” I feel like this isn’t really a “recipe,” but I’m happy to share precisely how I do it. Get ready to fall in love with celery. (I bet you’d never expect to…) I remember the exact moment when I decided to roast my celery. It was a Friday night, and there were a bunch of leftovers in the fridge, ready to be eaten. I was very…

Chocolate Chip Coconut Zucchini Muffins (Paleo / Vegan / Sugar-Free)

When I first transitioned over to eating a healthier diet a few years ago, I became obsessed with baking healthy treats. I have always had a sweet tooth, and I probably always will. When I changed my diet, I was in college, and I was surrounded by people who ate cookies and muffins and cupcakes and ice cream all the time without thinking about it. At first, I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to do that anymore because of my food intolerances. Then, I turned to the Internet, and I discovered a whole new world. I spent hours…

The Evolution of Blogging: I Wish It Was Personal Again

 When I think back to the magical world of blogging I first uncovered years ago, it seems like a completely different medium than what it is today. It felt like every post was a hidden gem – the blogosphere was untouched, unsaturated, and always hiding something new, waiting to be discovered. To be honest, I really miss when it was that way. It was deep and insightful, innocent and pure, cultivating connections and inspiring self-reflection. As time has passed, though, I personally feel like it has lost a bit of that magic. Growing up, I loved to read. I was…
