Hello and Welcome!

Hello to all of my new followers! I am excited to start this new blog, and I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts and recipes with you. You will have to excuse me, I am very new to this stuff, and my computer skills are not too great, so please bear with me, I'm learning :) I am starting this blog for many reasons:

1. In a month, I will be done with school, which means, I am going to need to fill my time with something.
2. A lot of friends frequently ask me things like "what's a healthy recipe you have?" or "what do I need to eat to be healthy?"
3. I love food.
4. It's fun
5. It keeps me accountable for the things that I put in my mouth. (sometimes)

So I'm not even sure how I want this blog to be, recipes only? thoughts on life? thoughts on fitness? day to day meals that I eat? I don't really know... but what I do know is that I will try my best to keep it current, and healthy!

I hope everyone had a great Easter! Today I am back on track with the zone and ready to tackle a great week off for Spring Break. This morning I had my usual zone smoothie for breakfast... mmmm In case you're wondering, here's what it is:

8 oz water
1/3 of a banana (1 CHO)
~10 strawberries (2 CHO)
4 teasp of mixed nut butter (6 FAT).... I double my fat intake because I get hungry if I don't...
1 scoop chocolate protein (3 PRO)

and now I am feasting on my lunch, the perfect little zone meal:

Egg Salad made with 3 eggs, 1 tsp mayo, and 1/2 tsp mustard (3 PRO, 3 FAT) spread out on some crispy romaine leaves
10 mini bell peppers & 1 apple (3 CHO)
9 Almonds (3 FAT)

What a delicious way to get rid of those pretty little Easter eggs!


  1. Love your new blog, Stacey! What kind of protein powder do you use and why?

  2. Noe, I just use the protein from Costco, it is the Muscle Milk brand, in chocolate shake flavor. It has 26g of protein, 2g fat & 3g of carbs... I just buy it because it's cheap at Costco, and I like the way it tastes.
