Into the Wild

Right now two fantastic girls who I studied with in Argentina (over two years ago, yikes!) are here for a visit. Today we spent 45 minutes looking for bear canisters at REI, and tonight we spent at least another 45 minutes wondering how one bear canister is going to hold enough food for three girls for three nights.

Dear Lululemon, let's compromise. Either you spend the next 2 years making butt-ugly clothes that I would never want to wear ever, or you start making your amazing I-somehow-believe-that-this-tank-top-will-make-me-more-flexible, these-wunder-unders-should-be-called-miracle-unders, how-is-it-possible-to-make-a-headband-that-is-really-worth-fifteen-dollars, spandex amazing-ness into a price that a normal human can afford. I appreciate it. Seriously, though, I definitely feel more capable when I Read more [...]

Paleo Spring Rolls, Lettuce Wraps, and Shepherd’s Pie

Editor's Note: Becky shared a post with us a few weeks ago about the basics of paleo, and here is a little more info from her about her own experiences after starting to adapt the paleo lifestyle. She even included some great recipes that are very budget friendly, which is hard to find with paleo! You can check out more from her blog here. Right off the bat I’m going to tell you I don’t eat strictly paleo. I eat mostly paleo though. I don’t eat gluten containing grains (wheat, rye, and barley), Read more [...]
