I’ve been on this easy side dish kick lately. Ever since I went to France a couple weeks ago and experienced tabbouleh for the first time…I’ve been hooked. But since most tabbouleh is made with bulgar or quinoa or even rice, I wanted to make a grain-free, low-carb version instead. Because every time I get back from a trip lately, I’m in need of some low-carb living. I was out of town almost all of May in Utah, France, and the Florida Keys, and all three of those trips meant lots of carbs and not many veggies. But this spin on tabbouleh fills you up, loads you with extra veggies, and this GIANT side dish is done in under 15 minutes. Minimal effort when it comes to cooking in the summer time is a must. I got you, boo.

While I was in the Florida Keys from Thursday – Monday last week, I barely slept at all. I felt like a complete zombie while I was there. A sober, worthless zombie. Then the moment I got back home and slept in my own bed, I fell asleep by 7:50pm and woke up feeling like the happiest version of myself in a loooong time. Now it’s been 2 nights of falling asleep in the 7pm hour and waking up feeling like I could chop down a tree with my bare hands. Is this what parents feel like when their child sleeps through the night for the first time?? I may never know because I may never have children, but I now do know the joy a parent feels after sleeping a full night. And it’s magical.

Speaking of parenting (or lack there of), I recently decided to start doing instagram lives on a weekly basis! I’ve changing things up and I plan to only record a podcast once a month or so, then start doing instagram lives every week. That way I can interact with people a little bit more! Just last night I did my first one all about eating paleo (it’s live for 24 hours so you can still watch it!) and next week I’m going to do one about my relationship, marriage, and why children really aren’t on the agenda for me at this point. I’m excited to talk through different topics next week in shorter versions than my podcast! Sometimes you just gotta mix things up! And sleep through the night without children.
