Hey there, I’m Liv! Most days, you can find me running, eating spoonfuls of peanut butter with chocolate chips, taking photos of food and/or people, spending time with friends, and making a mess in the kitchen.
I started this blog when I was a college freshman trying to figure out how to live a balanced lifestyle at UNC-Chapel Hill. Now, I’m a college senior, and 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!
I’ve spent my free time cooking and baking practically since I could walk, and few things make me happier than cooking for other people. I totally understand the limitations of having a small kitchen and cooking for one, so my goal is to share healthy recipes that are just as easy to make as that organic boxed mac ‘n’ cheese (or, uh, ramen noodles) college standby.
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 throughout high school, but these days, I just run for fun– typically about 30 miles per week. I also really enjoy strength training, kickboxing classes, biking, and taking long walks.
