As a dietitian, witnessing this dramatic transformation has been like watching a child struggle through the awkward teenage years and finally come out on the other side as a beautiful, confident young adult. I couldn’t be prouder of how far my little cruciferous veggie has come!

 Hi, my name’s Kara and I enjoy long, romantic walks along the beach Farmer’s Market.

Okay, so I’ve never had a dating profile (and never will), but if I did.. I’m pretty sure that’s what my intro would say. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the beach too.. but living in Ohio means that the farmer’s market makes for a weeee more feasible of a date night – or date morning)

Hi, hello, how are you?! Long time no talk. Sorry for going MIA over the past few weeks, but between school, traveling back and forth to NY, and – ya know – life in general, the whole blog thing took a backseat.

But apparently the world kept spinning while I was gone because suddenly it’s mid-November and Thanksgiving is next week! NEXT WEEK. How did this happen?? (This is not a rhetorical question – I legitimately want to know.)
