I have some cravings going on right now.

  1. I want pizza. My husband tends to eat healthier than I do, so whenever I say let’s order some gluten free pizza…he says let’s make salmon. Meaning me. He ain’t cookin’ the salmon. But once in a while I can talk him into pizza. Goal of the weekend: talk my husband into being unhealthy for one single meal. JUST ONE.
  2. I need a vacation. I need to get away. Being a person who owns my own business that is on the internet, there really is no escaping, BUT being in a different environment helps with that. Luckily, we have a wedding in Grand Lake next weekend which will pretend to be a vacation. And then I have an actual vacation to Portland. I’m gonna eat SO HARD there.
  3. I need to live on a lake. I’ve decided this just needs to happen. But the thing is, we live in Colorado. And I’m not a millionaire. And we haven’t even lived in our current home for 2 years, which my friend reminded me is a must or you get taxed big time. Lame. My husband has wanted to live on a lake for years now and he finally got me interested. But I’m just not willing to leave Colorado. I love it so damn much. If I stop writing my blog anytime soon, it’s because I’ve taken up treasure hunting in hopes of affording a lake house.

Those are all pretty simple things. Pizza, vacation and to be rich AF. Realistic.

I also want waffles. SOMEONE MAKE ME WAFFLES.

What’s up with my weird cravings? No, not preggo, just in need of fun stuff okkkkkkk?!

People have finally stopped asking me about having babies and my life is so much better now because of that. We’ve been married for a little over 3 months and I probably have been asked the baby question 300 times. Ummmmm no people, don’t you know that I’m saving for a lake house in Colorado right now? I can’t have both, I’m not a bazillionaire. Once I have a lake house, vacation home, mommy makeover fund, and 14 frenchies, then I’ll be ready to have a child. I can’t wait to start telling people that and watch their faces. Brilliant.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Grand Lake! Ahhhhh, my favorite place and dream home location! We’re headed to Grand Lake in September and I. CAN’T. WAIT! We’re also headed to Portland in a couple weeks, my 40th birthday treat to myself. So excited to make my maiden voyage to the PNW!

  2. Random question, but you got me hooked on the Girls Gone WOD podcast – do you have any others you listen to frequently or recommend? Thanks!

  3. Hi Juli!

    I recently moved to Denver and found your blog….LOVE! I read it daily. I know you are a devoted Crossfitter, but I wondered if you have ever tried Fitwall in Lohi? I am a trainer there and would love to have you in class sometime- plus it is a kick-ass workout!

    Thanks for the inspiration and entertainment you always provide!!

  4. aahhh these look like Asian heaven! The nutritional yeast would be soo tasty. Pinning this!
    Good luck with your lake home, but right now you might have more luck with getting your husband to agree to pizza 😉

  5. I am usually have your husband’s reasoning in my relationship. The bf always wants pizza, but then I make some broccoli for him ha. My parents thought they weren’t going/able to have kids so they bought property on the bay and build a beach house. Then they got pregnant with me. And then my sister 5 years later. I say it is definitely better to wait to do things you want. And then my sister and I got to enjoy going to our beach house every weekend growing up and living there during summer when we were older. It is a win win for everyone.

  6. These look like a great snack, especially because I love salty and spicy snacks. And I share in your three craving are mine, especially the being rich part 🙂

  7. Stick with your goals. No kids here (2 labs) and my husband and I have accomplished a cabin in Utah, and a beach house in Cabo.

  8. Your reasoning is basically exactly why I waited until I was 37 to have a kid. NO REGRETS. 🙂 Don’t let anyone rush ya! (Not that they could. I’d bet money that you have good stubborn streak LOL)

  9. Is there a brand of nutritional yeast you recommend? Can’t wait to make these nuts!

    As a mother of 2 kids, I say wait until you are ready to have babies. I wish my hubby and I had a few more years to travel before having our own. I was 25 when my oldest was born, and didn’t feel ready. Now 11 years later my heart is so full of love for these 2 girls I have, they are my everything.

  10. Simple and delicious!
    My boyfriend and I tried it yesterday. It was very easy and before we knew it, we had eaten all the nuts.

  11. Current cravings: almond butter, vegan frozen yogurt and Chinese kung pao takeout. I swear it’s not that time of the month! Anyways, these cashews look so fantastic for everything! Salads, stir-fries, popcorn, by themselves even!
