About Me

My name is Miranda and my blog is about taking life by the horns and just biting into it.


No, not like that that! ;)


I strive to live by the philosophies of live in the moment and seize the day. This blog is about my journey to fully transferring those views into a healthy living lifestyle.


I started this blog in September 2010, right after I moved out of my parents’ house. Since then, I’ve become a healthy living enthusiast and I lost 40 pounds! When I was diagnosed with a disability in November 2010, I had a hard time maintaining that weight loss. As a result, I gained pretty much all of the weight back — but I’m looking forward to fully recovering and eventually reaching my goal of being at a healthy weight!


The main purpose of this blog is to promote healthy living, especially by posting everyday recipes for people living¬†on a budget that anybody can easily make. Don’t forget to check out my Recipe page for everything I’ve been cooking up lately :)



I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Rhode Island. Now I’m working as an editorial assistant at a publishing company, doing exactly what I love!



My passions are singing, photography, and – of course – cooking! I love to experiment with different flavors and create tasty, healthy, and new ways to eat food. I’m constantly reading and love getting others excited about books – I’m always posting reviews of the latest book I’m into.



My boyfriend Brent and I have been dating since November 2010. He reads my blog every day! He’s my rock — completely supporting me in everything I do. Both of us are working towards becoming healthier and losing weight together. I love having a partner in this journey!

Thanks for getting to know me… hope you enjoy my blog!

Enjoy food, fitness, and life in the moment.

Awww you’re welcome! I’m so happy you commented :)

A lot of people love my hair… especially old ladies for some reason! It’s so curly, though – sometimes it’s hard to control, ha ha.
