The process of finally starting the journey of allowing myself to heal over the past month and a half has been really rough for me for a few reasons. One, I am addicted to exercise, and letting go, taking true 100% full time off has been a struggle (imagine a whole new kind of withdrawal). [...]

A special delivery came yesterday, which provided a much needed mood-boost. Chocolate (especially Love Bean Fudge) and a good book can heal most problems, after all... So now I finally get to crack into  Liz Wolfe's book Eat the Yolks. It's as awesome as I knew it would be. A fellow English major, the girl can write, and [...]

chocolate banana muffins and why sharing is caring

I have a little extra time to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen right now since I can't train because of my neck.... This creates a bit of a conundrum, though, because eating baked goods all day when I'm not working out at all... Well, it goes without saying that that just won't do. [...]

As some of you may know, I am currently dealing with two herniated disks in my cervical spine. I finally went and got an MRI and EMG after about a year and half of back, neck, and now head pain, and got some answers from Dr. Millar with SOAR. I am not going to sit [...]

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I am having some struggles with REALLY bad back, neck, and head pain. The good news is that I still had a blast working the CrossFit Level 1 Seminar this past weekend in San Jose. The participants were just so awesome, and as always, I got to work [...]

So I have officially made the decision to begin The Certified Nutritionist Consultant Program at the Natural Healing Institute of Naturopathy. It'll be a distance learning program done at my own pace (which means pretty fast because I want this bad), and I am SO excited. The coolest part is that I will have the ability [...]

soft boiled eggs and eating the yolks

I have gotten a lot of questions about egg whites vs egg yolks and "what should I eat?" We get a lot of mixed information on a daily basis about cholesterol, and I think most of the blame gets thrown on the egg yolk. Poor egg yolks. The bias against saturated fat and cholesterol has [...]

Today's post comes to you from the Bruner kitchen. I am actually shocked that I haven't really mentioned my Vitamix yet considering it's my 4th love (just behind Rusty and our two pups). This thing can be used to make pretty much any dish. It's fast, it cleans itself, and no kitchen should be without [...]
