Beet and Cauliflower Pizza Crust

My brain is full.

I went to the Prevention Magazine R3 Summit today and it was fantastic. I have so much great information swirling around in my head, along with two great big bags full of goodies from the day, that I am finding words somewhat difficult. <--- clearly, because I just wrote and rewrote that sentence three times,

SO... instead of asking you to decipher my explanations, I will instead ask you to visit a website that I am now a contributor to!
(I know, because I need more on my plate... new job, family, blogging, WEDDING PLANNING!...)

I whipped up a Beet and Cauliflower Pizza Crust for a super awesome lady by the name of Kim. She is the genius behind Fitness Galore and so much fun to hang out with!

Go check out the recipe, I know you'll love it.

Stay tuned for  a non-rambly post about my excellent day with Prevention Magazine!

Prevention Magazine's R3 Summit Preview Dinner Recap

 Next month I will be attending the R3 Summit by Prevention Magazine. I am so excited to attend as a VIB (Very Important Blogger).

We VIB's were treated to an excellent dinner last Thursday at Eden East. This restaurant is a tiny farm in the middle of East Austin. There were chickens, ducks, a friendly cat, and rows and rows of fresh veggies growing.

I met up with fellow Austin Food Blogger Alliance member Melissa of Red White & Blueberries and we chatted the night away with Kim of Fitness Galore, and Randi from Functional Girl Magazine. Eden East was a great place to socialize with other VIB's while sipping on the cucumber cocktail that their bartender whipped up just for us.

We were treated to an excellent menu of dishes created from the local produce that grew just feet from our tables. As we ate, we introduced ourselves to Ashley Koff RD who will be speaking at the R3 Summit. The conversation bounced around from blogging stuff to real life stuff as the evening went on. All of a sudden it as 10 o'Clock! We had such a great time that no one realized how late it was.

If that was truly a preview of the Summit to come, I absolutely cannot wait for October 18th!

Harvest Snaps- get your snack on!

This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

A few weeks ago I was selected to receive and review these tasty treats.
I had seen them several times in the grocery store and always thought "Mmm, that sounds good." but I never actually put them in my cart. WHY?? They're delicious!

My favorite flavor was the Wasabi Ranch, which was almost immediately devoured. Then I was sad they were gone. I ate a serving of the Lightly Salted along side a chicken wrap for lunch one day. I thought it was a great alternative to a chip; they're certainly a healthier choice!
