Parsnip Fries

Happy Friday lovies!  Look at what a snow day can do?  I’m all caught up on blogging and it feels great.  It also felt great to cook up a new little recipe while I was stuck inside this week.

It’s difficult sometimes to come up with new dishes because someone in the house is a little picky and we pretty much just really love our meat in the simplest form.  That’s why sometimes to be inventive it has to be with smaller side dishes or snacks…which brought me to try this delicious spin on my favorite food.

French fries are my weakness.  I had heard of people making veggie fries before.  So when I was craving some nice winter, root vegetables Parsnips immediately came to mind.

These were absolutely delicious.  Sweet and savory, and the perfect compliment to a nice juicy steak.

A Winter Day in Boston

Well hello there lovies!  Apparently it takes a full blown blizzard to allow me to blog now a days!  It’s been 12 days since my last post (am I in confession?).  Between work, teaching yoga, practicing yoga, having a puppy child, and now planning a wedding, I am slacking on the blog, and it makes me sad.

But now I have no excuse because here in Connecticut we are slowly but surely cozying up and preparing to be home bound for at least 36 hours as this blizzard they are calling Juno approaches.  So I am hunkering down, and writing!

Last week I took advantage of having weekdays off and a best friend who was in between jobs.  I made a very quick trip to Boston and it was perfect! I haven’t been up there for a visit in way too long and was very over due.

My best friend still lives in our apartment that we were in for 3 years in Brookline.  It’s sort of like a trip down memory lane and always bittersweet.

The night I got there, Rachel made me a yummy dinner and we spent lots of time catching up.  So much, that I have no pictures to show for it.  But the next day I have plenty!

We started our day for a 90 minute yoga class with my favorite (and one of my first ever) yoga teacher at Back Bay Yoga.  It was awesome being back there.

We then headed towards Newbury Street where I got a Vanilla Ginger Almond Milk Latte from Thinking Cup. Yum!!

Two Ingredient Primal Pancake

Hi loves! I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great start. Mine has been very exciting to say the least. Lots of celebrating going on for mine and Andy’s engagement.

It’s funny to think last year at this time I was doing the 21 day sugar detox. It just wasn’t realistic this year but I would love to do it again at some point soon as it’s a great way to kind of re-check in with my eating habits.

Speaking of eating habits, I have actually found a new breakfast that I’ve been loving lately. It’s super simple, paleo friendly, and filling!

I had wanted to try this recipe for quite some time a after I used to see Tina from Carrots n’ Cake make it.

I introduce to you, the Two Ingredient Primal Pancake!
