tigernut butter muffins and a product review!

By | April 6th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

Ever heard of a tigernut? No, it's not made from tiger genitalia (I thought I would get that out of the way from the start). And no, it's actually not even a nut! TigerNuts are actually tubers, another radical root that has stolen my heart and my tastebuds. Even cooler? Tigernuts actually comprised up to 80% of [...]

bone broth jigglers

It should come as no surprise by now that I am a huge advocate of homemade bone broth. Look no further than THIS post to see why. The cool thing about this healing bone juice is that you don't need much to reap some benefits (although the more, the healthier, of course). The  not so cool [...]

keto vanilla coco-nut poppers…

By | July 27th, 2014|Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

If you didn't get a chance to read my post yet on the ketogenic diet and whether or not it might be a good fit for you, take a moment to head on over HERE. Put simply, ketosis refers to fat-fueled metabolism – a metabolic state where the body gets energy from fat. The beauty of [...]

fat poppers…. and could a ketogenic diet be right for you?

By | July 10th, 2014|CrossFit, Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

Ketosis: a word of many meanings (but really only 1), a tool used for all kinds of tricks (from aesthetic changes to managing insulin levels, and everything in between), and in my opinion, an important nutritional lifestyle that everyone should try out at least once in a lifetime. Let’s start off by talking about WHAT [...]

silver linings and cacao, coconut, cashew protein cups

By | June 13th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes, The Mind|

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). [...]

let’s unlearn the crap… plus a new paleo cacao energy bar recipe!

By | June 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

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 [...]

6 ingredient “peanut butter” protein bars

By | May 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Nutrition|

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 [...]

sweet potato roll ups

By | April 22nd, 2014|Grab and Go, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

The length of this post is fitting for the content of this recipe because.... well, it's quick and can be taken in on the go. Sometimes, we don't have time for an elaborate meal (or an elaborate blog post). And this is one of those time. So along with this quick blog post, comes a quick [...]

clean green shake on the go

By | March 19th, 2014|Breakfast, Grab and Go, Nutrition, To Drink|

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 [...]
