I’m crying. 😭
(1) Because of the amount of onions I had to chopped in this HEALTHY YOGURT AND ONION DIP!
And (2) because it tastes so dang good!
• 2.5 cups minced onions, browned
• 2 garlic Crush Cubes
• 1 tsp Dale’s Seasoning
• 1.5 cups plain Greek yogurt
I’m also LOVING these Rubbermaid Brilliance Glass containers where I can mix AND store everything in one ☝🏼 container, so less mess & cleanup! These Rubbermaid Brilliance Glass containers are also — 100% airtight and leakproof, oven safe to 450*, freezer-safe, dishwasher-safe, AND BPA-free. 🙌🏼
(Thanks to Influenster for letting me try these containers complimentary!)
Lets be honest… sometimes when you “healthify” recipes the end product is kinda meh, but not this one! This tastes 💯% like the real deal French Onion Dip you would buy at the store.

Protein powder can be a great pantry-staple along with your canned goods, dried grains, and the like. Why are protein powders a good option to stock up on? For the same reason you make many other food choices in your life – convenience!
Now, selecting an ideal protein powder can cause your head to spin if you’re unsure of what to look out for, but Naked Nutrition products make it super easy. They’re products are made with minimal ingredients (most contain 3 ingredients or less!) so YOU are more in control of what you want when using a Naked Nutrition supplement. For example, their vegan Pea Protein Powder has just ONE ingredient – yellow pea protein. That’s it! No added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Just simple, straightforward ingredients that you can use to make a more well-balanced meal or snack. (Remember, protein is not only an essential nutrient, it’s also a nutrient that can help us feel full and satisfied throughout our day.)
Don’t know what to do with protein powder? The Naked Nutrition team provided me with these two tasty recipes (that include some of my very favorite flavors – matcha and coffee!) that I think you’ll love too…

I took a 48 hour girl’s trip 🚗 to SYLVA, NORTH CAROLINA (~4.5 hour drive from Nashville, Tennessee) in the early fall and here’s a quick recap of where we ate:
🍕 Pie Times Pizza Company (414 West Main Street, Sylva NC 28779) — Grab a delicious wood-fired pizza while you also sip on something from Innovation Brewing next door! I thoroughly enjoyed my “Spicy Italian” pie made with house-made Italian sausage, pickled peppers, Porter caramelized onions and mozzarella.
☕️ White Moon (545 Mill Street, Sylva NC 28779) — This cozy coffee shop was so good we had to visit twice during our 2-day road trip! Their menu changes frequently, but I would 100% re-order the “Morning Sammy” or “Garden Bagel” I selected. Pst — across the street you’ll find the. “Greeting from Sylva” mural to commemorate your visit!
🍝 ILDA (470 West Main, Sylva NC 28779) — Treat yo’ self to the upscale and intimate dining experience at ILDA. Their menu is also very seasonal and our 5-person group split two Fried Burrata appetizers and I inhaled my Rigatoni With Nasturtium :P
