I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

1. I’m happy to announce that I once again have an iPhone =)… and I feel no shame in admitting that I’m totally hooked on it.

2. Last Tuesday I treated myself to a kiddie cup of pumpkin soft serve from Truly Yogurt out here in Wellesley (<– best yogurt place around these parts… in my opinion).

Hey, it was 70° outside. That calls for a frozen treat, right?

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Bacon

Notice I wrote “kiddie” cup. Would you look at that huge tower of frozen yogurt?! There was more fro yo piled on top of the cup than there was actually in the cup.

And it cost less than $3.00.

Plus, the owner & employees are wicked nice and every flavor I’ve tasted has been phenomenal.

Like I said, best yogurt (and ice cream!) place that I’ve been to around Boston.

3. I’ve found yet another way to make time disappear: Greatist’s A-Z Guide. A compilation of recipes, exercise tips, nutrition articles, and other health-related information, you could easily spend hours on this website in what feels like the blink of an eye.

4. The following has become my go-to autumn salad:

  • toasted almonds/pecans/walnuts
