You guys, I've been traveling SO much recently. In the last two weeks I went from LA -> NYC -> Boston -> Maine -> Nashville -> LA. ✈️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I've spent a heck of a lot of time on the plane and in the car. Since I'm constantly hungry, I always pack snacks with me when I travel. Trying to find a healthy snack in an unfamiliar city isn't always the easiest, so I always have a back up so I don't turn into a HANGRY biotch. πŸ‘Ώ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I love packing homemade granola bars or protein bites because I know exactly what's in them (not tons of added sugars and artificial flavors!). I just wrap them in Saran Wrap or a plastic baggie and they're super portable! πŸŽ’
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
For other travel snacks, I also love: @chefscutjerky, @rxbar , @epicbar , and fresh fruit! What are your favorite healthy travel snacks? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

This weekend I celebrated my bachelorette party in Nashville! πŸŽ‰πŸ‘’πŸŽΈ My best friends flew from all over the country to be with me and I am so incredibly grateful for each and every one of them. πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ‘―βœˆοΈ We ate so much delicious food, listened to amazing live music, and laughed A LOT.

I love this White Wine Spritzer in the summer because it keeps you hydrated while you're drinking! A little basil and fresh orange make it πŸ‘ŒπŸ»!

We're heading to Temecula today to do some wine tasting! We've been to Napa, Santa Barbara, and Paso Robles, but it will be our first time wine tasting in Temecula. 🍷πŸ₯‚ If you have any recommendations of where to go (and eat πŸ˜‹!) let me know! πŸ₯‘πŸ₯– #temeculawinecountry #timeforwine #july4thweekend #temeculaca

@travbone usually requests these turkey meatballs once a week, but it's actually been months since I've made them. πŸ™ˆ

I just grabbed a package of @empirekosherpoultry lean ground turkey (my fave brand ❀️) from Trader Joe's so I'm going to make them tonight with some whole wheat spaghetti! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ You can find the recipe on my blog, the link is in my bio!

Don't waste those broccoli stems! You can peel and cut them to roast along with the florets.
They're delicious in my Sriracha Roasted Broccoli recipe! πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ”₯ #sriracha #spicyfood #srirachalove #whereisthebroccoliemoji

Sundays are for Challah French Toast! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌ I made this with leftover whole wheat Challah (from the freezer) that I made a couple of months ago. I didn't love the Challah recipe enough to share with you guys, but MAN was it good as French toast!!!! #challah #challahfrenchtoast #sundaybreakfast

I love these Sesame-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks in the summer!
To make them healthier, I remove the skin and brush the glaze directly on the chicken while the drumsticks are on the grill. That way the sesame glaze seeps directly into the chicken and each bite is SO delish! πŸ˜‹
You can find the recipe on my blog, just search for "Chicken Drumsticks". πŸ—πŸ— #grilledchicken #grillingseason #sesamechicken #grilltime

On Friday I did A LOT of recipe testing for some upcoming projects. I kinda hate pulling out all my camera equipment for just one recipe, so I try to shoot a few at a time. πŸ“Έ
I just reshot my healthy whole wheat banana bread recipe because the old photos were...umm...less than appetizing. πŸ™ˆ I changed the recipe up a little bit this time, and I can't wait to share it with you! 🍌
