Easy Biscuit Dinner Rolls

We had a family get-together over the weekend and I had to think of something for a side dish. We had no butter, no veggies–nothing in the fridge or pantry. But one thing we did have…baking ingredients! Why don’t I make dinner rolls! Perfect. However…I didn’t have butter. But, thanks to the internet, I found my way around it! I used this recipe. However, again, it called for an ingredient I didn’t have–mayonnaise. I looked up a few different ways to “substitute” mayo and decided on my winner (egg yolk + oil). Either we were going to have some great dinner rolls or we were going to stop at Whole Foods. Spoiler alert: they turned out great! This is an incredibly easy recipe for some delicious biscuit dinner rolls

Bulu Box Review: Unique Health in a Box

I was thrilled when I was chosen to review a Bulu Box: who doesn’t love samples? What kind of samples, you ask? Well if you’re interested in this important thing called health, you may be interested. How often have you scoured about in magazines or online to find that exact product to fit your needs? Those organic, healthy items that you can’t find anywhere. Or maybe you just want to try something new, something to shake up your game, to give you a boost. It sounds like Bulu Box is for you.

Get Phitt! Drive the Movement

A few months ago, Hungry joined a new project because he has serious problems focusing on one thing at a time. Opportunities to try something else come often but it’s a rarity to find a real diamond in the rough. They’re usually rocks in the rough. There are hundreds of thousands companies and causes that you haven’t heard of and you probably never will. Not everyone can be Chipotle, Starbucks, and Apple but in order to get anywhere near there you need to have a vision and drive. “Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.” (Edward Young) You need to be willing to put that dream high on your priority list; higher than working out, eating, and even sleeping.

Good Morning Meditation

It’s easy to go about our morning either dazed and confused or rushed and panicked. Then how does that make the next few hours play out? The day, even? With just five to ten minutes (even less sometimes!), you can set the right intention for the day and get into the mindset you want to be in. I find this much more preferable than the craze that our minds and therefore focus can get whipped into. So here’s a simple good morning meditation to try to do each morning and start the day right. This can be done any time of the day, but I find that the morning is great for setting the day up.

How to Increase Your Pull-Up Game

Pull-ups can be one of the most difficult exercises–especially for adult-aged women. It’s also funny and frustrating that they are also one of the most simple exercises out there. If you’ve been following us on our summer fitness journey, you know that one of my summer goals is to do four pull-ups in a row. Right now, I’m at two. However, I’m doing grueling workouts (still feeling it everywhere) in order to get to that goal. Do the exercises below to increase your pull-up game (if you’re brand new to pull-ups, we have something for you too!). Remember that we’re going for strength here so keep the number of reps low
