Join me on a food challenge! #marzomexicano

TOTALLY not oatmeal-related.

I’ve recently gotten really into la comida mexicana (Mexican food). It’s likely because my favorite vendor at the monthly vegan pop-up market is Vegicano, who supplies my new addiction with TACOS. Also, Mexican is my boyfriend’s favorite food, so we eat it a lot when we’re together.

But I rarely cook it myself! This needs to change. I can’t cure my taco cravings once a month. I want to be able to do it at home! I want to be a master at making great pinto beans and fun twists on salsa. I’m already a rockstar at guac and classic pico, but I want to build on that. (more…)

Review: MyCerealMix

I’ve seen many of my readers posting MyCerealMix shots on Instagram, so I was over-the-moon excited when the company gave me the opportunity to try it for myself.

MyCerealMix is a company that allows you to create your own cereal creations using a variety of healthy and fun mix-ins, like freeze-dried fruit, cacao nibs, chia seeds, nuts, and more. You can personalize the base (you can stick to oats or you can go for different grains–even rice crisps!), choose whatever mix-ins you want for no extra cost (it’s a flat-rate bag of deliciousness for $9.99, even if you add five servings of cacao nibs!), and have full control over whether any sweeteners (xylitol and bee pollen) or powders (protein and wheat grass) are added.

MyCerealMix Review - Muesli

For my bag, I went with:

  • Oats, because I’m classic
  • Chia seeds, because they make my tummy feel good
  • Goji berries, because I’ve honestly never had one before (!!)
  • Freeze-dried strawberries, mangos, and raspberries, because NUMMY
  • Cacao nibs, because chocolate makes everything better
  • Coconut, because coconut makes everything better


An Open Letter to My Readers with EDs

I do not believe this requires a trigger warning, but use your discretion. Fellas, I wrote this specifically from the female perspective, but some of this might relate to you as well.

Dear valued, worthy individuals,

Let’s start with the obvious. I empathize with your struggle; I have more body image issues than literally anyone I know. I am here to tell you you are super. I bet you have killer hobbies like winning ping pong leagues or jamming out on a cello. I bet you’ve taken the leap and dyed your hair fluorescent pink or something spunky like that. I bet you have hundreds of people in your school, work, or following you on Instagram that envy how inspiring, cool, or brilliant you are, and you don’t even realize it. (more…)
