Cheesy Chicken & Artichoke Cauliflower Casserole

For my fellow artichoke lovers out there, this recipe is for you. While one of my favorite artichoke-focused items is the namesake slice from Artichoke Basille Pizzeria, it’s safe to say that an artichoke slice is nowhere near healthy.

Warm Kale Salad with Roasted Beets, Cauliflower, and Goat Cheese

Let me start by saying that I’m really excited about this salad (and I do not normally get excited about salad).

I’m currently on an all liquid diet thanks to getting my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday night.

How to Train for Warrior Dash (sort of)

First off, apologies for the huge delay in posts. From all the packing, moving out of my St. Marks apartment (sadface), unpacking, and getting my life (aka stuff) back in order, I’ve just been too busy/lazy to update this.
