Top 10’s of Bucket List Tummy

Hey friends!

I couldn’t be happier that it’s Friday. This week kinda kicked my butt. In a good way. People are coming off the New Year with bold goals which means a lot of motivated new clients. I hope it stays that way!

I’m way behind on going through my emails, subscriptions and nutrition reading. Just the site of my inbox itself is stressing me out. After an awesome 13 hour day yesterday with 8 clients, I’m ready to just netflix it all weekend after today’s clients. We’re supposed to see some snow here in Charlotte, and the threat of shutting down is already looming. Netflix, wine and Tater, I’m comin’ for ya.

I figured it would be fun to do a little recap of 2016 through you guys’ favorite posts! I feel that over the past year, my blog has honed in on 3 topics:

Food and Recipes



and a little bit of lifestyle and bucket list posts here and there.

So today, I’m rounding up my (and your) favorites from these topics.

Favorite Recipe Posts

  1. You shared so many great posts last year! Isn’t that so odd to say last year? I still keep saying “next year” when talking about things when I actually mean this year. I’ll get used to it in like November ready to play the same game all over again, haha.

    The best thing I’ve eaten.. hmm.. probably triple chocolate coconut milk ice cream. Heaaaaaaaaven!

  2. Your nutrition posts have been so so helpful for me this year, because I am in the dark about most details of nutrition besides very general knowledge. I also loved seeing all your recipes, but I still need to try some of them! 🙂 I’ve been eyeing that sweet potato bread for a while.

  3. I wrote out my grocery/meal plan list the other night and your sweet potato turkey burgers were at the top. Can’t wait for those babies. I’m loving your blog just as its going, lady. You have a real focused sense of what you are about and what you like to talk about – even though that is still diverse in of itself. Can’t wait for more from all these three categories.
