Virtual Coffee Date

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you Happy National Nutrition Month and that it is also my birthday month.

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you that my friend Emily from Zen & Spice & I have some exciting projects brewing behind the scenes. We cannot wait to share with the DFW community very soon. Keeping our fingers crossed. 

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you that I ran a half-marathon on Sunday. It was a last minute decision because why not right? Mentally I was so pumped but my legs were not too happy about it. Nevertheless, I feel victorious personally knowing that my body is capable of walking/running/waddling 13 miles just like that.

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you that I just finished watching "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" on Amazon - highly recommend // cooking and drooling everything from Burma Superstar // leisurely reading nothing at the moment - so send me some book + new TV show recommendations please. 

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd tell you that this whole blogging & online world is hard sometimes. It is easy to fall into comparison trap,  blindly follow whatever is trending or viral but in 2018, I have been very intentional about how I want to utilize this platform for Food, Pleasure, and Health. My 2 mantras are "less is more" and "be unapologetically myself" and it's been glorious in so many ways.

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd share some of my highlights from February in case you missed it :

A vibrant salad with fresh herbs, peppery arugula, simple vinaigrette, and crunch from fried cashews! The recipe is naturally gluten-free, it can be adapted for vegans as well. Serve as a side salad or a refreshing lunch. 

Step by step on "How To Make French Press Coffee For One" at home every single time. 

5 steps to get you comfortable with instant pot + beginners recipes included. 

Highlights from our Colorado trip; Denver, Vail, and Ft. Collins! 

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd ask about you, your family, fur babies, or whatever you want to share, I am all ears...and also if you have any plans for the weekend.
