Remember that time when I was Paleo for three weeks? Yeah, that didn’t turn out well; it’s not a lifestyle I can commit to. And you’re all thinking ‘duh, you bake cookies every other day!’ Yeah, well, …. um… shut up! I’m glad I tried it though, because I learned a lot of cool stuff about food and cooking, like, cauliflower can be made into ANYTHING!
I knew it made for good soup already. And remember those Cauliflower Wraps? Well now, I bring you… Cauliflower Rice!
Is there anything this beige Brassicaceae can’t do? Continue reading

So I had this great idea that I could run half marathons through the summer if I ran them in the Midwest, where the weather would be perfect. What I didn’t think through was that I’d still have to train, in Atlanta, through the summer. Thankfully, it hasn’t been to ridiculously hot yet, but still, if you’re going to get a long run in, it’s best to do it right when the sun rises, which is not my prime time to function. In fact, I’ve had trouble completing any runs recently without stopping to walk for a bit. It sucks. It’s frustrating. But, it does make it feel slightly sweeter when I finish – like I struggled and pushed for it.
Half marathon #2 in a week…
I recently saw the Great Gatsby. I think I over-hyped it in my head because I left it underwhelmed. The soundtrack, however, was as awesome as any Baz Luhrman film. Currently, this little Fergie number from the film is rocking my iPod.
This Fired Up Friday is a SHAM! You can’t run to this song. You can’t lift to this song. You can’t bike to this song. All you can do is dance. Naked.
Seriously, if this song came on my iPod while I was running, I would trip and fall on my face because I would try to dance and run at the same time. When I’m in my car, when I’m at my desk, when I’m baking cookies and this song comes on I start dancing like a fool. God help us all if this song were to come on over the speakers at the grocery store or the gym.
You know what this song is good for? Taking a shower and getting ready in the morning. How can you not feel like a sexy badass when you’re putting your summer dress and sandals on and curling your lashes with Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. playing?
Hmmm, so maybe it’s not really a sham because it still gets you fired up and ready to take on the day?
I’m glad this forced me to look up the video for this song because it is hilarious. The concept appeared to be: take half-naked models, place in room with R&B artists, add random props, let hilarity ensue. If you think it’s sexist or gross you need to settle down and realize they’re making fun of themselves. It’s called parody. I learned about it in sophomore English class.
