Portland Eats – Best Brunch, Dinner, and Dessert Spots

Portland Eats // 24 Carrot Life

I was in Portland, OR the other week for work and extended my trip for the weekend so I could stay with my friend who moved from Philly last year. I did SO much eating. It basically never stopped. And I loved every minute of it. I haven't written many travel recaps on the blog (except for the one I did last year about my trip with Daniel to the Riviera Maya) and I would love to Read More »

Miso Baked Yams // 24 Carrot Life #healthy #glutenfree

It's no surprise to most people who know me that I have a Type A personality. I love organizing and cleaning about as much as (or more than) I love going out and partying. I need to have a clean and neat surrounding before I can relax and enjoy other activities. Lately, I've been feeling pretty unorganized in many aspects of my life, so this long weekend was a great chance to Read More »

Looking back at the past couple of recipes I've posted, I realized that I  post a lot of brown foods. Plum Chutney, Latte Overnight Oats, My Favorite Smoothie, Maple Bacon Waffles, and Cleansing Cashew Milk. Brown, brown, and browner. Yikes! I swear I sometimes eat colorful foods like green things and carrots. I guess it's time to start showcasing them a bit more on the blog. Read More »

Spiced Plum Chutney

Spiced Plum Chutney // 24 Carrot Life #ad #indian #healthy

Dried plums (aka prunes) get a bad rep. Everyone knows them for their ability to make you...um...need to use the bathroom. But did you know that plums promote healthy bones and are a great substitute for fats and sugars in baked goods or sauces? When I was in San Francisco in March, I had dinner at a great Indian restaurant with my friend which prompted me to take Daniel Read More »

Latte Overnight Oats (Vegan) // 24 Carrot Life #vegan #glutenfree #ilovesilksoy #ad

I ran in the Broad Street Race on Sunday, which is the country's largest 10 mile race. There were over 40,000 people there. Needless to say, it was kind of a zoo. It was the farthest I've ever run and I never thought I would do it, but I loved it! I think a half marathon is next, but I'm going to wait for cooler weather in the fall. While training for Broad Street over the Read More »

Garlic Soy Glazed Salmon

Garlic Soy Glazed Salmon // 24 Carrot Life #healthy #salmon #fish

Soy sauce is one of those condiments that I use when I'm lazy and just want to throw a bunch of ingredients in a pan and call it dinner (aka stir-fry). I rarely make fancy sauces with it and, after using it excessively for a while I get bored and I push the bottle to the back of my cupboard to forget about it for a while. That's where it's been for the past couple of Read More »

My All-Time Favorite Smoothie

My Go-To Smoothie: Banana, Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Coffee // 24 Carrot Life

My friend, Ari, and I are training for the Broad Street Run on May 2nd. Broad Street is a 10-mile run that is very popular in Philadelphia and this will be my first time running it. I'm not much of a runner since I prefer other types of exercise instead, but lately I've been running once or twice a week. Ari is the perfect running buddy for me since we both have the same pace Read More »
