I started this blog as a college freshman trying to figure out how to live a balanced lifestyle at UNC-Chapel Hill. Over the past few years, my blog has blossomed into a huge passion of mine. I love getting to share my life and my recipes with all of you, all the way through college (four years of dorm cooking!) and now, in law school.
I’ve loved cooking and baking for as long as I can remember, and few things make me happier than cooking for other people. I understand the limitations of having a small kitchen and cooking for one, so my goal is to share healthy recipes that are simple, approachable, and delicious.
Everyone’s definition of “healthy” is different, but for me, it means staying active and eating all of the nutritious foods that I love, but also enjoying some not-so-healthy food sometimes, too. I’m a huge believer in enjoying everything in moderation. My favorite indulgences are dark chocolate peanut butter cups and ice cream loaded with chocolate mix-ins
I ran cross country and track in high school, often averaging 45+ miles per week. These days, I run for fun, typically covering about 30-35 miles per week. I’ve run a handful of half marathons and 10 milers, and a marathon’s on my bucket list to do someday. I also really enjoy strength training, HIIT workouts, kickboxing classes, biking, and going for long walks.
