Shoreline Weekend: Fam, Fish, & Floaties

Later on Sunday, I worked on this post, scheduled the podcast for Monday with Holly, and ate some more snacks/dinner. That was pretty much our weekend! It was so relaxing to be home by the water with family. Every summer except for this one, that's where all four of us have lived together. It's seriously weird being in Boston and school during July and August and not by the water with my family and our neighbors, but getting to go this weekend was such a treat.

I tore my meniscus and it's awesome.

I caused a “large and complicated” tear (doctor’s words!) in my left knee's lateral meniscus by dancing too hard when I went to a bar for the second time as a legal 21-year-old. (This is not a joke, and I swear on the existence Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter.)

Boston-ish Weekend: Sunburns, Family, & a Wedding

Snack-y lunches are sometimes the best. There are so many options and foods to try! I had some sweet potato chips and hummus, more SkinnyPop, a banana with almond butter, and Audrey brought strawberries, cheese, and crackers. I'm not usually one to eat cheese at all because in the past, it's given me really bad stomachaches and symptoms of indigestion. When I got allergy tested, I learned why: I'm allergic to all the dairies! However, I hadn't had (non-dairy-free) cheese in many years, so I decided to try some of Audrey's!! Talk about food freedom.

Kale on Instagram, Perfection, and You

life is not always glittering with Bulletproof coffee and the sweat from a morning CorePower Yoga class, topped with a chopped kale + cilantro + avocado salad with vegan almond cheese and a Gingerade kombucha on the side, followed by a deep meditation, a 'relaxing' evening jog around the park, and a swig of freshly brewed turmeric nut milk. Hell no. That last item alone costs much more than the federal, hourly minimum wage.

The Intersection of: Restrictive Paleo Diets, Nut Butter, & the Whole30 

For these reasons, I'm extremely happy that the Whole30 exists.

However, what I’m really here to do is give you my experience with Whole30, as I cannot speak for anyone else. And I will be completely honest when I say that this original Whole30, strict-Paleo template did not work for, and was definitely not right for, me.

Medicare, Wet Sneakers, and Las Vegas

What I did not know at this reception in Scottsdale, Arizona was that touring the American southwest with my family and 35 Senior Citizens would turn out to be one of the most spectacular trips of my 20-year-old life.
