Breakfast, This AM

Happy Monday my loves! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I don’t know about you – but I am dreading these last two weeks of midterms, before spring break. I need a vacation (and warmer weather)! I can’t complain that much though. I have so many trips planned this year, and I can’t wait to share it all with you! BUT, this post is not about my trips, or how much I’ve been dreading school. This post is about...

Green & Gorgeous Organics: Dry Shampoo

Who doesn’t love a good hair day?! Especially when you’ve had absolutely NO time to wash your hair (busy or by choice). As previously mentioned in my blog post Muddy Organic Hair Mask, I usually go about 3 days without washing my hair. If I wash it too much, my hair starts drying out. So, I use dry shampoo for the days I don’t wash my hair.  Prior to me switching up my hair routine, I used Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo by TRESemmé....

Pita Pockets

Shredded Chicken Pita Pockets

When I was a little kid, I used to love pita bread. My mom would stuff it with leftovers and hand it to us, and we’d eat it up like it was brand new. But as I got older, I stopped loving the pita so much, and I’m not sure why. I recently jumped back into the world of pita (especially given my new found love of hummus) and I haven’t looked back. Those little pockets can hold pretty much...

Lean Chicken & Soy Sauce Pasta

Hello beauties! Lord, I have been so busy and couldn’t find the time to do a blog post. But, I am extremely lucky! Nabeel (fiance) has been holding the fort down for me. We make such an awesome team! If you haven’t tried any of his recipes, I suggest that you try his Spinach & Pesto Pasta on our blog! It’s so delicious! Nabeel and I are pasta fanatics. Because when we are meal prepping for the week, pasta is...

Fitness Misconceptions

Top 10 Fitness Misconceptions

I tend to get a lot of fitness based questions. Really anything… workout tips, full exercise routines, my diet, diet suggestions, or my sleep schedule. I’m happy to answer any and every question, but I always get hit with a couple main questions (or comments) that I feel should really disappear from our collective psyche. So, I’ve listed the top 10 fitness misconceptions I have witnessed that are completely wrong.   I can’t lift, I don’t want to bulk up...

Chicken Nachos

“Game Day” Shredded Chicken Nachos

I love nachos, I get them at every event they are sold. Chicken nachos are even better. Chicken nachos during the Superbowl are probably the best. Simple but flavorful nachos recipe you can put together in 10 minutes. The ingredients are simple enough, you pretty much just need your basics, and oven, and a group of people that love nachos. If you wanna make the shredded chicken at home, you’ll need a little over an hour to prepare, but you...

Shredded Chicken

Shredded Chicken

Shredded chicken is a simple to make ingredient that can be used in so many things. It takes a little bit of time to make, but I prefer it over canned shredded chicken any day. Why? Because I know what quality chicken I used, what ingredients I put in, and I can add some flavors and seasoning to it if I want as well. So, here you go! Shredded Chicken Prep Time: 2 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes Total Time: 62 minutes Ingredients...

Fried Chicken

Oven “Fried” Chicken

I developed a love for fried chicken as a little girl. I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. Being born in a very strict Arabic culture, I didn’t have lots of opportunities to go out, explore the city, and meet new people. Plus, my dad worked all the time – Thursdays were his only days off. I looked forward to those Thursdays. We would go to my favorite restaurant, this place named Al-Baik on Al Marifah in Mecca, we would...

Muddy Organic Hair Mask

Hello dolls!  Lately, I’ve been getting so many messages about my hair. Most of you guys have asked for my hair growth secret. So, I am going to share my usual routine as well as a new product.  First, let me tell you a few things. It is no secret that all of our hair is different. Everyone has different lengths, texture, and routines. What may work for me, may not work for you. However, there are somethings that are...

Baked Old Bay French Fries

French fries, freedom fries, pommes frites, whatever you wanna call it, I love it. Probably one of my favorite foods on earth. Sometimes, when I’m trying to figure out where I want to eat, my decision is dependent solely on whether or not that place serves fries (and whether or not they’re good). Unfortunately though, fries aren’t all that great for you. So I decided to start making them at home, and adding a little MD flare to it (you...
