Good morning beautiful people!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I for one, am trying to soak up the last moments of Winter Break before the semester begins tomorrow. These last three weeks have been a much-needed break from the throws of graduate school. I’ve spent these weeks relaxing on the couch, hanging with the family, catching up with old friends, reading (for fun!), and visiting my boyfriend in California! Now that these three weeks are over, it is time to start prepping for the busy week ahead.

After driving four hours back to Cincinnati yesterday, I decided that I should hit up the grocery store for essentials since my cabinets were completely empty. Since I’m participating in Tone It Up’s #loveyourbodychallenge I wanted to stock up on lean, clean, and green items! If you want to participate in this challenge, head on over to Tone It Up and sign up. It is full of inspiration, great workouts, and prizes! If you’re interested in what kind of goods I bought from the grocery store, check out my Grocery Haul video!

When grocery shopping was said and done, it was about 8:30, but that didn’t stop me from whipping up a yummy dinner! I opened up my new favorite cook book, “Super Natural Everyday” by Heidi Swanson.


I love this cookbook. It is full of amazing vegetarian & vegan recipes. I ended up making the recipe that is on the cover: White Beans & Cabbage. It incorporated, cannelini beans, cabbage, and potatoes. I made enough for leftovers, and let me tell was so yummy that I’m sure it’ll be gone by today! Here is how my version came out.

Just looking at this picture makes me drool a bit 🙂 . My favorite part is the crunchiness of the cabbage. mmm yum!

Well, it’s time to get the day rolling! I’ve got a big day of textbook shopping (ick), a trader joe’s trip (hooray!) , a massive clean of the house, and a trip to the gym.

Have a great Sunday everyone!
