PALEO | WHOLE30 | DAIRY-FREE | GLUTEN-FREE On a normal weekend, when we’re home, I probably spend 5 hours preparing food for the week ahead. That’s half of a weekend day! Of course, that doesn’t factor in the time spent planning the meals, buying the ingredients, etc. I love cooking, and I love grocery shopping,… Continue reading 1-hour meal prep | why I’m done doing
Almost two years ago, a guy from LeanKit came to speak to my marketing class at Vandy about internships at a software startup in Franklin.

Greetings from the other side of a weeklong migraine! Wisdom teeth surgery recovery did not go quite as smoothly as I originally thought it would, so I found myself… Continue reading migraine mac and cheese
