Lyssy’s Eats: Dô Cookie Dough Confections

Last summer I had heard about a magical place that had edible cookie dough in NYC. I looked at their instagram and knew I had to go there. When I visited Jon in September we tried to go, but the line was across the street and around the corner 😫. For the sake of our…

Lyssy’s Eats: Voodoo Donuts

I can’t believe it’s been over two months since my Portland Trip!! (If you missed it you can catch up Day 1 & 2, Day 3, and Last days) I’ve heard about Vodoo Donuts for years, and had to go when I went to Portland. I’m more of an ice cream kinda person, than donut,…

Jon’s Birthday in NYC!

Jon’s birthday was on a Monday (June 25th), so we decided to celebrate the weekend before. In the morning we met our friends and lifted with them. I did some deadlifts while Jon benched with his bros. We went to Insomnia Cookies afterwards because I was starting to get hangry! We got the peanut butter…

What’s Up: July 2018

I’m going to start linking up with the first blogger I ever read, Shay Shull, for my What’s Up posts.

Guilt Free: Sweet Chili Shrimp

Guilt Free: Black Bean Avocado Brownies

This recipe has been almost a year in the making. Last July Jon and I made these brownies and we’ve been talking about making them again ever since! These black bean brownies are great because they don’t have any added sugar or artificial ingredients. They are also full of healthy fat and fiber, and don’t contain gluten or dairy….

Our First Anniversary

Jon and I celebrated our one-year anniversary last Tuesday. He suggested that we make dinner together at the apartment so that we wouldn’t have to worry about other people sitting right on top of us. Sometimes it’s a little awkward how close the tables are at restaurants here, it’s like you’re on a double date….

Guilt Free: Protein and Antioxidant Packed Salad

I love salads because they’re usually pretty lite and there’s such a variety of different kinds. I always add salmon or chicken to my salad to get some protein. I like to make sure my salad is packed with protein and micronutrients so that I get all of the health benefits. Some salads can sound…
