For the past 6 months, I have been working as a prep cook at a country club. Learning new knife skills in a fast-paced environment keeps me on my toes. It helps me improve my cooking speed and technique to be more of a professional chef. Honestly, since starting to cook for someone else, I lost a lot of my inspiration to cook for myself. I go out to eat more and it is greatly affecting my gut health. I am now taking responsibility for my health because the food you eat really does affect your mood.
Are you someone who is always in a hurry to get out the door in the morning?

Growing up, I was rushing for the school bus in the morning on a regular basis. My bag would be packed the night before, as I get up at the ass crack of dawn. I quickly brush my hair, brush my teeth, throw my clothes on, grab my shit downstairs, and rush out the front door.
The issue here is that I was either not eating breakfast or I would eat a bag of dry cereal. Even worse, a pop tart. By afternoon, I was crashing and was unable to pay attention in class during the last two periods of the day.
Do you wake up in the morning with little time to spare?
You're super hungry, but don't want to go out to eat.
What can possibly be done in under 10 minutes with enough time to eat and make it out the door?
We've all had those mornings before.
While it might not be your typical routine, we end up running half our day with nothing in our systems but caffeine while feeling hangry.
After having enough of those days, I discovered this idea that's much better than having a granola bar from the store.
You get to have a breakfast without all of the additives that gives you the energy you need to power through your morning.

It was a wonderful weekend of seeing my friend in the city with lots of warm weather. We went to the farmer’s market and I was craving some of the delicious fruit from the stands after eating a savory crepe. I’ve wanted to make pancakes for a while since my boyfriend and I have been going out to eat at the local pancake house for the past few Sundays in a row. Since I bought apples and peaches, I thought why not make the pancakes and caramelize those on top?
