Baked Chicken Parmesan

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

  Last weekend when Joe and I were in Idaho visiting my family, we stopped by Great Harvest to pick up some bread for the weekend. Like Joe and me, my family loves Great Harvest bread because it tastes, well, like bread is supposed to taste. I could go on and on about their bread, but I’ll spare you the details and tell you to get yourself to a location near you.  Up until six months ago, Des Moines had … Read More

No Fat Talk Tuesday: Kristin’s Story

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

 Today’s No Fat Talk Tuesday post comes to us from Kristin. I enjoyed reading what Kristin wrote because I think it really examines the thought process behind fat talk and body confidence. I especially liked the last part of Kristin’s post where she says, “I knew it was my mindset that needed to be reformed.” Isn’t that the truth? Thanks so much for sharing your story, Kristin! – Madison No “fat talk” may seem like a simple enough mantra. If … Read More

Easter Weekend in Idaho

In by Madison Mayberry5 Comments

Last weekend Joe and I hopped a plane and headed off to Idaho to see my family (dad, second mom, little sisters). My dad’s sister, Gwen, flew in from Florida for the weekend, too. I can’t tell you how great it was to be able to spend time with everyone. We did a lot of normal, everyday things, including watching my little sister Taylor run in her first track meet and attending my other little sister Ashley’s sorority philanthropy event. … Read More

Spring Green Salad

  Lunches are difficult for me. Are they difficult for you? The whole process of packing a lunch, trying to find something in the fridge that will transport well and keep me filled throughout the afternoon. Something that’s not going to stink up the office fridge (which is already its own kind of disgusting). It’s really a drag, isn’t it? But since I’m trying to eat out less during the week and save us a little extra money, brown-bagging it … Read More

NYC Travels and IACP

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

Last week Wednesday I hopped on a plane and headed to New York for five days to attend IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals). You might remember last year’s trip to Austin, in which I met the lovely Dorie Greenspan, watched thousands of bats fly at night and ate some of the most amazing tacos of my life. This year’s trip was entirely different but every bit as fun. Most of my time was spent at the conference, but during … Read More

Today’s No Fat Talk Tuesday post is from the lovely Alaina who blogs over at The Jogging Concierge. Although Alaina claims she doesn’t really have a way with words, I would beg to disagree. Her story touched me and motivated me to continue to work towards fighting the good fight against fat talk.

Hello, all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I’ve actually been away in NYC for work since Wednesday (more on that later) and am just getting home today so things have been a little slow around these parts. But I know what you really want to know is who won the giveaway, right? It seems like I’m not the only one obsessed with Greek yogurt since over a hundred of you entered to win the free Chobani. So, let’s … Read More
