• SOUP-er Golden Coconut Lentil Soup

    Howdy folks! It’s been a while since I posted, so I wanted to hop on and chit chat about my life and lunch today. Work for me has been super crazy busy for the last couple of weeks. #NationalCerealDay is coming up on WEDNESDAY (3/7), which means that there has been a lot on my plate for my General Mills work. I’ve also had a couple of freelance projects with tight timelines. But, I’m doing my best to stay on top of everything. Whenever a busy period like this happens, I crave spending time in the kitchen. Chopping vegetables and tasting my soup forty-five times really refuels my pursuits. This…

  • Banana PB Overnight Oats FTW

    Happy Monday folks! Hope all of the Minnesotans out there are doing well with all of that wet snow piling up today. I have been boarded up inside for a good part of the day giving me some time to write. Time management can be tricky, but do you know what helps? Overnight oats! (Yeah, that connection was a little bit of a stretch) If you have been following my instagram/Facebook for a while, you know that last year I went through a major overnight oats phase. Like an every night prepping, every morning eating, kind of routine. I fell out of that cycle, majorly, last fall. I don’t remember…

  • Getting Senti-Lentil with Coconut Lentil Soup

    Today was work from home Wednesday (woot! woot!), and I carved out an hour of time to make a new recipe I saw on Facebook earlier this week. Vegan Coconut Lentil Soup from Bon Appetit. And it did not disappoint one bit. Before I go any further, a note on lentils, as I reminisce and get a bit… Senti-Lentil… tee hee. I don’t know if I’ve ever had lentils before… Maybe they were snuck into something, but I can’t remember ever eating them. I definitely don’t remember cooking them. With that in mind, I spent a solid 15 minutes in the grocery store searching for the darn little legumes. That’s…

  • Sunny Days and Summer Squashes

    I can’t believe that July is over and August is HERE! I am a Leo, so this is a pretty exciting part of the year for me. NEVERTHELESS — This past week (and really this whole summer) has been rocking at full throttle, and I wanted to check in and let you know about a few fun life updates that went on in the month of July: Vacationed with the best of them. Between an amazing 4th of July trip to Texas and a family vacation to the lake trailer out in Wisconsin to celebrate three birthdays including my sister’s 21st, July has been a wild ride! But, big news, I…

  • Easy One-Pot Pesto Pasta

    Spring went and sprung a long time ago but here at LivingNimbly, we still have an easy, one-pot spring-inspired pasta dish that will be on your mind (and plate) well into the summer months. Today, I’m going to be highlighting a flavorful pesto pasta with little cleanup involved. My roommates pointed this out to me this week: “Jack, you sure like making all of your meals in one pot or pan.” I knew that about myself; however, someone else pointing it out made me consider how it is not as commonplace as I may think it is. I’ve lived in apartments with small galley kitchens for the past couple of years, and…
