I'm one of those weirdos who loves math, numbers, and excel. If you don't believe me, ask to see my ridiculous personal finances spreadsheet, it's pretty next level nerd (I swear I'm fun at parties...).
But you know why I love numbers? They don't lie. There is always a right and wrong answer, and it's not arbitrary or subject to any creative license. This is actually why I pursued finance in college, I liked the black and white nature of the numbers.
When I first dove into the health and fitness world, I was excited about new numbers and technical jargon. I loved learning about the digestion system, how to get stronger using percentages of 1 rep max, and what an optimal macro breakdown might look like.Read More
We all know that we need more vegetables in our diet if we want to lose weight, maintain a healthy body composition, have glowing skin, etc... the list goes on. So "eat veggies" is not exactly ground breaking info.

While it's delicious, it's not overly healthy... you know this, I know this, so I won't try and pretend that baking it all of a sudden turns it into a health food. But it will help cut down on the fat and grease content, and every once in a while it's a delicious treat to add to breakfast.Read More
Who doesn't love toast? I mean, it's bread (say no more), and usually something else delicious on top. What's not to love!? Well, love handles for starters... while toast is oh-so-tasty, it can sometimes be lacking in the nutrients department. This is of course, unless you up your game a little.Read More
My first "real job" was working at a pancake house called Village Inn (I-Hop competitor for all you East Coasters). For a solid year on days I worked, I lived off pancakes, home fries and pie. I fully blame this job for my love of fried potatoes. There is something about the crispy borders that you get from the pan (and butter let's be real), that just isn't the same when eating aRead More
