confessions of a foodaholic

sharing my life through food

macaroon heaven

i figured i’d try to get in a post recapping parts of this week i’ve missed due to workschooldogsnofreetime… work has been stressful lately, so of course i naturally revert back to my lovely habit of inhaling everything in sight. luckily this week that meant macaroons!! every week two guys come around selling fresh baked pastries to help support recovering drug addicts in the area. we’re all too happy to help, and it doesn’t hurt that the food is AH-MAZING! i bought us some macaroons yesterday to help take the edge off of work. 

if you’re wondering if they taste as good as they look, they do!!

these macaroons are perfectly crunchy and caramelized on the outside, and the inside is so gooey and cocounutty. OMG, they just melt in your mouth and you’re instantly washed away to coconut heaven. I honestly can’t even put into words how good these things are!! let’s put it this way, one macaroon is enough to satisfy any sweet tooth, but if you’re like me, it takes at least 3 before you’re willing to stop 😉


other than macaroons, i swear i’ve been eating somewhat healthy! my last snacks included a blood orange, a KIND almond and coconut bar (i’m noticing a trend with coconut…) and a small piece of peanut brittle. 

today’s menu includes a farm fresh egg with morningstar bacon and a fruit smoothie for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and snacks are grapes with cheese and a mango with a scoop of peanut butter (eaten separately, not together!) have a lovely day folks!!

Ohayou gozaimasu!

in other words, good morning!! i’m currently attempting to learn Japanese through an immersion program the hubs got me for Christmas…that’s about as much as i can remember at the moment! that and domo arigato (…mr roboto!) i have a long ways to go!

anyways, i woke up this morning with a HUGE craving for oatmeal!! it’s funny because i used to hate oatmeal with a passion. it just always tasted bland to me. however, thanks to blogs like KERF and Carrots n’ Cake i have developed a new relationship with oatmeal. i guess it never occurred to me before that i could actually add stuff into the oatmeal (seems like a pretty simple concept, right?) so this is this morning’s bowl of deliciousness.

it’s been awhile…

so i’ve really been MIA for the past week! it seems as though days pass and then i realize i haven’t posted or taken any pictures of what i’ve been eating!! life is pretty crazy at the moment, and time is limited, but i want to establish a new goal of posting at least 3 times a week. by writing down and taking pictures of what goes into my mouth gives me new appreciation for what i put into my body, and also holds me accountable. 


so…if you’ve been following at all you’ll see that i changed the title of my blog. to be honest, my views on what i want this blog to be has changed a little. i’m a foodaholic. i’ll admit it. “hi my name is taryn and i’m a foodaholic.” i LOVE food…sweet food, savory food, healthy food, and not so healthy food. i’m in a constant struggle to balance eating food for pleasure, but also using food for fuel. hopefully from here on out, blogging at least 3 times a week, i can start finding this balance!
