Blog Eggs

I’m not going to lie–a lot of stuff I try in the kitchen is blog-influenced.

I woke up this morning seriously craving some protein and protein powder wasn’t going to cut it, so I decided to make some eggs. I totally burned myself out on eggs when I was trying to lose weight, so the idea of plain eggs that I’ve made myself is pretty unappealing.


Enter: nutritional yeast for a “cheesy” taste. (I still haven’t tasted the “cheesy” taste…)


And Garlic Gold from my Healthy Living Summit swag bag.


I scrambled up two eggs and put them on an English muffin. They were tasty but still kind of dry so I put some salsa on top.

I should have just gotten an egg and cheese. That’s what i was really craving.

Finding Inspiration

Nothing super out-of-the-ordinary happened yesterday, but I still found lots of inspiration all around me.

From running with a ridiculously fast friend who doesn’t let even a bitch of a disease like Crohn’s get her down (you can help her raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation here.)


To hanging out with a seriously successful blogger friend who’s always pushing herself to achieve more.


To hanging out with a group of successful women bloggers all inspiring in their own ways.

I’m finding just how important it is for me to associate myself with people who truly impress me and push me to be a better person, blogger, cook, runner. And that I have a lot to offer, too.


Is it a bit of a reach to say I also find inspiration in chocolate? No? Okay, then this chocolate hazelnut butter is positively inspiring. Any day that starts with some chocolate can’t possibly end badly.


I drizzled it over some cookie dough cereal (in my mix: 1/3 cup oats, 3/4 scoop protein powder, 3/4 cup almond milk, half a banana, sprinkled with flaxseed) and tried really hard not to lick the bowl.

I just asked this on Twitter, but are there any books or blogs you’ve read lately that have inspired you? (Specifically, any inspiring career reads?) Also, who in your life (or who in blog world) inspires you?

A few books that have inspired me: Unlimited by Jillian Michaels and Running on Empty by Marshall Ullrich.
