Looking Back at 2013

Wow. This year went by in a blink of an eye! Noms McGee is still a baby and it's so exciting to look back at everything I have written since I first started my blog earlier this year. 

My first blog post was published on June 12,  2013.

The post read, "Welcome to Noms McGee!"
Let me tell you a little bit about myself..

I am a New York girl, born and raised.
I have a twin sister, Brittany who judges and evaluates all of my recipes.
I am a senior at Long Island University, Post majoring in Nutrition.
I am FINALLY graduating this December, 2013 (phew.what a journey).
I love...love...love to write....

In July, I shared my amazing experience in Hawaii.

Aloha! White sand beaches, clear blue oceans, palm trees, and ohana (family). I'm in paradise! If you're looking to hang loose and leave all your worries behind, Hawaii is the place to be. The Hawaiian culture is focused on the many meanings of "aloha"- greetings, love, enjoying life, laying back, and having fun...

In August, I shared my top tips for healthy eating in college

It's easy to fall out of a healthy lifestyle when you're at school and have so many different influences around you. Here are my favorite tips to follow when life gets a little bit tricky...

In September, the college theme continued with Fuelin' Up for the First Day.

Nutrient dense snacks filled with fiber, protein, and carbohydrates will keep you satisfied all day long. Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables to compliment your meals for an extra boost of antioxidants!

In October, I created a delicious Citrus Edamame Salad.

This salad is bursting with colorful antioxidants!

In November, I was put up to the Recipe Redux challenge to make a homemade gift for the holidays.

The Recipe Redux's November theme was "Adding merriment to mixes." My obsession with breakfast foods aided in my inspiration to create a homemade muesli mix in a jar. Whole food ingredients, like whole grains, nuts, seeds, and dried fruit are packed into one merry jar. This gift isn't only from the heart, but provides heart-healthy benefits to those you care most deeply for. 

In December, I was especially pleased with this adorable Apple Cinnamon Muffin recipe. 

Along with the holiday season comes parties and get-togethers with family, friends, and distant relatives. Whether you're hosting or attending, these muffins are the perfect holiday treat! 

Thank you to all who have been following me on this amazing journey! Have a happy and healthy New Year!
