We were some 7 miles into our snowy hike in the Indian Peaks Wilderness when we finally pulled the peanut butter filled pretzels from the bottom of my backpack. Pulling a couple of crunchy little bites from the resealable bag and popping them in…

My Favorite Almond Butter Bars

It took some minute version of the flu to knock me out last week, so at last I would sit still, unpack, and get settled in our place. Or, settled enough that when I wake up each morning, I find myself appreciating it for…

Travel Snacks

It’s been just over a week now, since we moved into the new place and slowly but surely, were starting to feel at home. The jumbled mess of belongings that was lumped into the hallways and rooms of our little spot in the world…

Strawberry + Avocado Superfood Smoothie
