So I am no professional photographer, but I managed to get some awesome shots of My Chemical Romance (and Neon Trees!) at the Showbox! Check it out!
Amber Pacific stopped by the studio to chat with Izzie and Danielle! Check out the photos of the interview and performance!
THE AUDITION took the stage before This Providence at Saturday's Private Performance. Check out the photos!
Sheesh! I can’t believe I am at the end of the 4th week of the Whole Life Challenge! It’s kind of been a roller coaster - I have my good and bad days - but making good choices about what I eat is getting a lot easier. Some of the recipes I have made are incredible!
I totally suggest Civilized Caveman’s pulled pork recipe with homemade BBQ sauce (sauce link in the pulled pork recipe). I’ve been craving some sweet BBQ sauce, but usually its chalk-full of sugars and unhealthy garbage. So, I took to the internet to find something that worked for me. After reading tons of great reviews of the Civilized Caveman BBQ pulled pork recipe, I knew I had to go for it.
AND IT WAS AMAZING. Keeps super well in the fridge... amazingly delicious. Totally satisfied cravings. But, you’re only going to dig this if you’re OK with a vinegar based-tasting BBQ sauce.
(WLC Warning: be careful with canned pineapple. You’re better off slicing up your own pineapple to avoid sugary pineapple juice than using canned pineapple in this recipe).
I also got experimental lately with my cooking because I was craving something crunchy. So I attempted my own avocado fries! I took some avocados, sliced them up, dipped them in egg white, and then covered them in macadamia nuts that I had put through the food processor. Popped them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. They were good, but its a recipe I’m still working on. The avocado + macadamia was suuuuuper rich, and they were still pretty squishy (on the left, before the oven). Trying to perfect the “avocado fries” will be my next kitchen challenge :)
So, my nutrition has been going REALLY well. Now, I need to focus on my running (after all, that’s what I am working towards!)!! The Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon is quickly approaching - we are into the double digits... its just 99 days away! If you haven’t signed up, get to it!
Where are your favorite places to run? What’s your favorite running shoe or something that you can't run without? Any advice for a newbie? :)
