After a summer spent adjusting to a new job, a new city and a new apartment, I’ll admit that my diet hasn’t been the best lately. Add outings with new friends and back-to-back vacations to that equation and my eating habits have almost completely gone awry!

Fortunately, I’ve made strides to get back on track, including baking more high-protein, low-carb meals from scratch.
