Protein Smoothie Bowl

I’m sure you’ve seen these all over social media. Smoothie bowls are a foodie trend right now, but for good reason. They are delicious and you can hide lots of veggies in them without the bitter taste! Freeze some fresh fruit overnight, throw in a blender, blitz, and serve. Super easy, delicious, and chock full of vitamin, minerals, complex carbs, healthy fats, and protein. A macro counters dream. You can add whatever you would like, but this is the recipe I whipped up the other day.   Smoothie: Frozen raspberries, 1/2 cup Frozen banana, 1/2 Handful of spinach Handful of

I am indifferent about being “trendy”. I guess it depends on what the trend is and if I like it – haha. Chokers and bodysuits are definitely back in trend and I wrestled with the idea of them. I love both, but I often associate the trend with a girl that… may not be the classiest? For lack of a better word. They aren’t always styled in a classic, elegant way. My mind changed when I grabbed coffee with Andrea and she was wearing the most chic outfit that included a choker. I love, love, loved the look! A look that screams

Mother Loves You

Gird your loins because this is about to be a lengthy post. So much has been happening (surprise, surprise) in the Howard household! Sam and I love to keep busy and we are really, really good at it. The past 3 weeks Sam and I have been in-between leases and therefore – homeless. Dun, dun, duuuunnnn! Thank goodness we have amazing friends who let us stay at their apartments and family on the weekends. We basically lived at Whole Foods for all three meals since we weren’t really able to cook. I now know every worker there by name and can

That commercial is so stinking hilarious. I can’t believe that it is MID-JULY. Blowing my mind right now. Sam and I are moving out of our apartment this Friday and into a new condo! I am so excited for it. We will have so much more room (for activities – Step Brothers, anyone?), a finished basement, our own garage… Ah! It’ll just be so much better.

Canadian Tuxedo

Hahahaha, I don’t even know where to begin with this post! Andrea and I went to Grand Rapids the other day because we are obsessed with all of their restaurants and coffee bars. And alcoholic bars. Anyways, after bouncing around town all day, we ended up at the Reserve for a glass of wine. Mistake #1. Have you ever seen that popular Facebook post that was circulating with the 4 pictures of people after drinking  wine? First picture was before wine, second picture was after 1 glass, third picture was after 2 glasses, and fourth picture was after 3 glasses. I’m

Festival Vibes

Yes, yes, Coachella has already passed, but I am still dreaming of being there. This outfit randomly happened while playing in Andrea’s closet. I showed up at her house wearing this crop, these shorts, and these shoes, but wasn’t sure how I wanted to style it. I saw her kimono and the backpack and it all came together! I took a step away from my preppy style and bought this cute crochet crop top. I mean, it was $10. I thought it would be the perfect summer top! It has been 90 degrees and humid the past week in Michigan,

Michigan has been really humid lately, so this dress has gotten a lot of wear. I accessorized with all gold errythang, even though silver would go well too. I don’t discriminate between the two. I’ve always dressed really preppy, but my curious mind has been experimenting with the boho style. I mean, it is summer. Bohemian style and summer go together like pb&j. It just works. Stay

[Paleo-ish] Protein Smoothie

Smoothies should be a staple in every household. They are quick, nutritious, easy to make, and perfect for on-the-go. You can hide so many greens in smoothies, but still have it taste like dessert! I love to add protein powder to all of my smoothies because I hate drinking just protein powder + water. I like the consistency to be a bit thicker and with more substance. My favorite protein powder (at the moment) is Paleo Pro protein powder (I love the aztec vanilla). It is all natural, soy-free, whey-free, and contains beef and egg protein. I love that it

InstaFOOD Round-Up

Happy Sunday! Sunday’s are usually my day to meal prep and grocery shop. Sam and I both are up around 5am for workouts and then immediately start our day. We go-go-go until 6pm, so it’s super helpful for me to always meal prep. Otherwise we would be living off of poptarts… which doesn’t actually sound so bad… There are so many delicious meals that I make that don’t require a “recipe”. For instance, avocado with cottage and olive oil. Not really an in depth meal/snack that I would make an entire recipe post for, ya know? SO, I’ve decided to
