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. Little did I know that I would start my career at LeanKit after graduation, that LeanKit would grow exponentially, that that guy, Carl, would become one of my dearest friends, or that… Continue reading wellness @ work: food and drink
GLUTEN-FREE | CLEAN EATING | PALEO+RICE* (omit cucumber side dish) My boy and I both have a serious love for that crossover between Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavors: where pine nuts, feta, coriander, oregano, cumin, smoked paprika, tomatoes, lamb, beef, cucumbers, hummus, pita, olives, sumac, and pomegranate all intermingle. One of our favorite restaurants in Nashville,… Continue reading one-pan spiced beef and rice bowls

The thing is, organic tofu is, in many ways, a perfect weeknight protein: It stays fresh for a while,… Continue reading tofu-mushroom tacos | how to throw a taco night
CAN BE DAIRY-FREE* | GLUTEN-FREE | NATURALLY SWEETENED One of things I’ve learned from my month of migraines is that migraine prevention has to be a lifestyle. This can mean many things: For me, it’s seeing a chiropractor regularly, sleeping regularly, and eating well. One website I read about migraine prevention actually recommended living a “boring”… Continue reading 5-minute breakfast: protein-y rice pudding
Well goodness, friends. It’s still happening! The migraine nonsense has yet to fully release me from its grip – although I’ve started to have enough information to piece it all together (what’s causing what, why does this feel like this, etc.). I think I know how my brain found itself here, and I’m fairly certain… Continue reading what I eat on sick days | what’s your migraine story?
