When I first discovered FitCoupleCooks on YouTube, I thought “I have found my people.” There aren’t too many meal preppers out there who can teach cooking and meal prep without scaring people off, but their 300k subscribers speak for themselves. Aside from the fact that they’re entertaining as hell to watch, I adore Adam “AB” and Stephanie of FitCoupleCooks because …

True story, my mom used to put HONEY on lettuce to get me to eat it. We called it a salad, but it was literally just a few sweet, sticky lettuce leaves. But the lesson there is that putting stuff (like sauces, marinades and glazes) on food can make it taste better or different. The problem? It’s just another step to …

Beat Food Boredom Forever With 3 Easy Ways To Switch Up Your Cooking

Food is a lot like music. Hearing the same songs over and over and over again gets boring to a point where it almost hurts your brain. Have you ever had the distinct pleasure of listening to a Top 40 radio station for more than two hours? It mind-numbingly repetitive. After hearing Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” for the fourth time, that’s …

How To Avoid “Netflix Syndrome” When Choosing A Recipe

It’s 10:05 pm on a Sunday, and I’m scrambling to wind down for the night. Normally, that doesn’t involve writing. It’s usually just me spending 45 minutes scrolling through shows and movies on Netflix so I can spend 30 minutes watching something before drifting off to sleep. Netflix is not a chill experience for me at all, to be honest. …

Easiest Chicken Fajita Bowls With Brown Rice

I used to be the pickiest eater in the world. No joke, up until age 16, I lived on grilled cheese, breaded chicken and pizza. If my mom wanted to get me to eat lettuce, she had to put honey on it. Honey on LETTUCE. Today, that sounds gross to me. (But I’d probably still eat it.) I started getting …

A Guide To Avoid Gaining Weight Over The Holidays For Totally Normal People

Like most people, I used to rush to the gym in January after the holidays in hopes of reversing all the (delicious) damage I had done to my body from Thanksgiving to New Years. Except for last year, that is. It’s been one year since I’ve started cooking 70 percent of my meals (woo!), and two very important things have changed …

Minimalist Kitchen Equipment: Everything You Need (And What You Don’t)

When I moved into my first apartment after college, my mom and I made one epic trip to Ikea to pick up life essentials. I’m talking about a bed frame, a night stand, some shelves and of course, kitchen equipment. Kitchen stuff is something you don’t start to accumulate until you’ve graduated college. Up until then, you’re using what’s already at …
