“I’m Going to Montana” doesn’t have the same ring to it as Will Smith’s song.

I have had a serious sweet tooth lately.

Unfortunately, this has coincided with my lack of willingness to workout.

Honestly, I think my body just needed a few days of rest. That said, I am more than excited to bust out a long run at the gym later today.

But let’s get back to those sweets. I mean, they’re not BAD for you by any means. They’re just no broccoli or brussel sprouts.

First, the grain free chocolate mug cake.



Super easy to make. You’ll need:

  • 3 T almond meal
  • 3 T cocoa powder
  • 2 T agave
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • A dash of cinnamon

Mix everything up nice and good in a mug, microwave it for 2 minutes, and BOOM, you’ve got yourself a single serving cake. It was super filling and hit the spot.

Another ‘sweet’ I made were protein balls. I made a small batch really quick yesterday before we hopped in the car for a ‘quick’ trip to Montana. 



I never really measure out the proportions of ingredients when I make these, but it included:

  • Oats
  • Protein powder
  • Sunflower seed butter
  • Almond milk
  • Agave


Again, super tasty and really filling.

Montana was fun. I was there for approximately 2.5 minutes before turning around to visit the nice immigration officer on the Canadian side. He took out all my visitor visas from my passport, stapled in my confirmation of permanent residency, and said the card would be in the mail in 90 days. 

7 hours of driving for a quick conversation and a signature. A waste of time, but well worth it. The views were pretty awesome.









..the views of nothing that is.

I celebrated with a little bubbly when I got home, and today I am already on the job hunt.


Seriously, if you know of any full-time jobs in Calgary, please let me know.
