Whole30 Backpacking Breakfast: Fruit Leather Trail Smoothies

In preparation to our trip to Big Bend National Park, the dehydrator was running at a near continuous clip. Since the last time we went backpacking, my diet has changed  significantly with Whole30 and other changes that I have made. For example, I eat breakfast fairly late, and I more or less only eat two…

The primary destination of our road trip was Big Bend National Park, and we made sure to visit the south rim again.

Road Trip Round-Up: Adventuring on a Whole30 Diet

We returned from a glorious road trip and backpacking vacation in Texas and New Mexico to a fridge that had missed us so much that it died in our absence. Of course, we returned from vacation when the wind chill was -20 degrees and our fridge was mostly empty… so our fridge chose an opportune…

Beginning-of-October me would’ve been shocked and horrified, but that me was also stress eating sugar as if it were an essential nutrient. I probably would’ve even snarled that it was one…

November 2017 Goal-Setting and the October Follow-Up

October began as an unkind month, given that it started with both of my foster kiddos running away. The rest of the month flew by, and I’m rather shocked to find that I’m already a third through November. I hope that since I started my last October goals post a little late, y’all will forgive…
