Biggest Lessons from 2016

Happy New Year! As many expressed all over social media—2016 was rough and it was no different for me. There were so many ups and downs, changes, challenges, revelations and accomplishments, but none of these things were easy to come by.

Two Ingredient Sweet Potato Pancakes That I Love

Many of my friends who know me, know that I can be a bit of a health nut at times. I like to think of myself as a health nut hybrid because I’m also a foodie! I love to eat and I adore trying new things. That’s one of the many things that brought my husband and I together. We loved to try new food together; he was the first person I tried sushi with. However, while we love food, the other thing that brought us together was the fact that we were trying to lead a healthier  ...
