Crispy Kale & Goat Cheese Spaghetti Squash [Recipe]

I’m all about a flexible work schedule – especially when it means I can cook up a fresh, healthy meal at home for lunch! The company I work for allows us to work remotely on occasion and I love taking advantage of it. There’s just something about waking up an…

Not A Resolution: That Clean Life

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen an influx of healthy eats over the last week and a half. No, it’s not a resolution (really). It’s #ThatCleanLife!
