My Favorite Morning

Life can be a little unpredictable but I try to have a morning routine that sets the tone for a great day. This morning was my favorite kind of morning, the one I seek to have each morning. My dog wakes me up. I generally wake up to my dog, Bear, licking my face and…

Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole

I am a huge fan of breakfast and love getting a good, protein-packed breakfast in before a long day. As I am about to go back to the office (after a few months getting to work from home), I wanted to make something nutritious, filling, but also easy/quick for the morning. For the sweet potato…

Iced ACV Tea

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) can help with weight loss, acids reflux, and sore throats and stuffiness. It’s a little rough to drink a straight shot of ACV so I try to incorporate it in other ways, such as on a salad as dressing or most recently, added into iced tea! Iced ACV Tea is a…

Sweet + Spicy Chicken Salad Wraps

Whenever I bake or grill chicken, I like to go ahead and cook several chicken breasts at a time. It’s so easy to come up with chicken recipes to enjoy throughout the week!  These little wraps pack in a lot of flavor, protein, and healthy fats. The recipe below makes about 2 cups of chicken…

Who’s on Instagram? Follow me!

Profile: brookieh22 I’ve mentioned my love of Instagram before but lately it’s occurred to me how much I’ve learned from Insta. I follow a lot of food and fashion bloggers, they’ve taught me little tricks in the kitchen, delicious meal ideas, outfit and makeup ideas, etc.  It’s also a great place to share little stories…

Honey Nut Butter Crumble

I love peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, you name it! Lately I’ve especially enjoy adding it on top of yogurt, on top of a homemade acia bowls, etc. The only problem is that to get it to drizzle nicely (rather than plop in one big chunk) over things that are cool/cold, you have to…

Matcha Green Tea Refresher

I often have the 2 – 3 pm slump where I either want to take a nap, slug a cup of coffee, or eat a whole candy bar – none of which are a great option. Yesterday I whipped up this drink and it was very refreshing and energizing (without too much caffeine that I…

Chickpea + Lentil Burgers

There was a report on the Today show this morning about how great lentils and chickpeas are for you and how they’ll help you live a long life. I kind of waver in my love for these foods, they’re very filling and a good source of protein but also have a lot of carbs. I…

Fried Goat Cheese (GFree)

I’m on a big goat cheese kick right now, I love it on salads, crackers, with strawberries, etc. Yesterday we got to taste-test food for our wedding reception. One of the samples was of mac n cheese, but it wasn’t gluten free πŸ˜• that got me craving something with gooey, warm cheese! That’s where the…

Mini Banana Nut Muffins with Chocolate Chips

Flaxseed meal was on sale at the grocery store this week which inspired me to get in the kitchen and bake up something delicious πŸ˜‹ I started gathering up ingredients somewhat haphazardly and ended up with mini banana nut muffins with chocolate chips! These are perfect for a little snack, dessert, or have a few…

Why I started selling Rodan + Fields

Brookeholliday.myrandf.com My Mom started selling Rodan + Fields in 2010 before I’d ever heard of it. Proactive worked well for me as a teenager and this was the grown up version, it worked like a charm too! My Mom got busy and stopped selling and I kind of forgot about the product for awhile.  Two…

Sweet Potato Toast – Snack Size

I love Instagram for many reasons, one of the main ones being the awesome food inspiration. One of my favorite food bloggers is Little Bits of Real Food + Real Talk, she invented #sweetpotatotoast which has become a favorite snack of mine!  I’m gluten free and the bread I can eat is expensive πŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ like $5+…
