• Fudgy Walnut Chocolate Brownies

    I made these brownies for the first time a couple months ago and I fell in love. With the brownies of course. They were fudgy, chewy, chocolatey and left me with a fully satisfied sweet tooth. They are for sure a healthier version to my classic childhood favorite chocolate brownie dessert. In my opinion, the best boxed brownie mix of all time is the Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate. I always looked forward to taking the Costco size box of this brownie mix to bake on our family vacations.

  • Funfetti Chocolate Protein Bars

    I think ever since I started eating protein bars I have been on a personal mission to create my own homemade ABSOLUTELY delicious healthy protein bar. I used to love Quest bars (before they became rock hard).

  • What I learned from 5 Bikini Competitions

    I've spent a lot of time trying to decide how I wanted to write about my NPC Bikini fitness competitions. I have a lot of mixed emotions about my experience because each prep and show were extremely different. But I figured there is not better way to get started than to just begin writing- what am I waiting for, right? So I will take you through each of my shows, one by one and explain how they have shaped me into who I am today. It sounds cheesy, but I learned so much about myself from these experiences. At the time of my first show I was lightly immersed in…
