Proscuitto Wrapped Asparagus

I was in one of those moods during lunch yesterday where I wasn’t really hungry but knew I needed to eat something…the problem was nothing sounded good. I had some prosciutto that I needed to use soon so ended up with a savory little dish, proscuitto wrapped asparagus.  It’s very simple, filling and has some…

Precious Time and Using it Well

When I first quit my crazy job filled with long hours and weekly travel, I felt pretty uncertain about what to do with myself. By the way, I count my years in college among my running-ragged years – I had poor, but kinda necessary, timing quite often and ended up doing crazy things like taking…

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Quinoa Bars

My friend Casey makes these great, healthy, yummy bars and brings them with her when she travels. I was just with her this past weekend and reminded of how much I love these bars as a sweet, but not too guilty snack. She sent the recipe and I was excited to make them!  I’m at…

7 Tips to Kick Anxiety and Just Chill Out

Anxiety creeps up on me occasionally and the next thing I know I’m pacing around the room, wringing my hands like a wet towel. Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what’s causing anxiety, it’s probably a compilation of quite a few life stressors. I don’t remember being an anxious person until starting law school about…

GF Oatmeal Raisin Protein Cookies ūüć™ūü§ó

I look to recipes for inspiration but almost never follow them to a tee, either to make a healthier version or because I am missing some of the necessary ingredients. These cookies are a happy example of my recipe-altering ways turning out deliciously! The back of the Domata Gluten Free Recipe Ready Flour has an…

A little on me + why I’m blogging

I did a little introduction about 2 years ago when I created my first post. But I didn’t keep up with the blogging and a lot has changed in my life these last 2 years so it’s time for another introduction. Why I called this blog “busy bee on the move”: The “bee” part of the…

Homemade Almond Butter + No Bake Cookies

I’ve been wanting to make homemade almond butter for awhile now not only because is it insanely expensive at the grocery store (like Justin’s which is delicious but $12!) but also because a lot of the store-bought ones have added sugar. I used my new Vitamix to make the almond butter but this should work in any food processor or decent blender. The…

Life Lately

It has been almost two years since I last posted anything here. I started my blog while wrapping up law school, thinking it would be a fun little thing to do (distraction) as I studied like a mad woman for finals and then the Bar Exam. As it turned out, looking at a computer screen and…

Tuesday Thoughts

Tuesdays have always been my “dreaded Monday.” I think Mondays are exciting, a fresh start to go after your goals and dreams! Wednesday is midway through the work week, yay! By Thursday, the weekend is in sight and everyone’s mood improves. And who doesn’t love Friday, it is basically the weekend! But Tuesday‚Ķthe excitement of…

Homemade Granola

Granola is one of my favorite little snacks – plain, on yogurt, or eaten like cereal with some almond milk. I don’t indulge in it very often though because it is expensive (especially the gluten-free kind) and has a hefty amount of carbohydrates. But still, it is delicious and most things in moderation are ok….

Brain Fog

A year or two ago I asked Google, “why does my brain feel foggy?” Very technical terms there, but really that was the best way I could describe how I felt. I’d had some issues with this feeling¬†in undergrad but that basically¬†went away when I finally stopped eating gluten (which I am allergic to and…

Sunset Beach Half Marathon and New Year’s Resolutions

This weekend was amazing for many reasons, but mainly because I ran my first half marathon and had a mini beach vacation¬†before starting to study for the bar exam this week. I’ve wanted to run a half marathon for many years but have never thought I could or really wanted to put in the effort…
