Y is for: YVR: Vancouver in 36 Hours + Cruising Aboard the Norwegian Joy

If you find yourself in Vancouver, B.C. for just 36 hours… chances are, you either decided to pop up for the weekend from somewhere in the Pacific Northwest or you are about to embark on an Alaskan Cruise.

I recently found myself there for the latter as part of a fun girls getaway with my friend Kate.

I’ve always wanted to visit Vancouver. Growing up in Montana and attending school in Washington state, it’s sort of ridiculous that I hadn’t made it there yet. And after a fast-paced 36 hours, I can tell you that a day and a half is not nearly enough time, and I already can’t wait to go back. 

The city itself reminds me of some of my other favorite coastal cities… sort of a mash-up between Portland, Seattle & San Francisco. With its vibrant downtown, a sprawling public park, and its residents’ love for the outdoors… Vancouver has plenty to see and do!

I also read somewhere that locals muse that “YVR” stands for “Yes, very rainy,” but we were lucky to get some mild, dry weather during our short stay.

W is for: Wraps {with Hood Cottage Cheese & Quick Chicken Shawarma}

Lately, I've been doing a lot of work from home. For me, that can mean any combination writing, blogging, recipe developing, photography and video content for brands or any of my own social channels.

I love the flexibility it gives me, but without the structure of a traditional job, it's hard to stick to a good meal schedule. A lot of times, I get so busy that I actually forget to eat (ironic, right?) I've learned it's really important to have easy snacks on hand to eat in between shoots or takes. That's why I'm super excited to partner with Hood Cottage Cheese. For me, it's a win-win. I get to come up with delicious recipes, while having a fridge stocked full of a protein-rich snack!

My first recipe post with this product features a super easy-to-make pita wrap that also happens to be high in protein. It's my take on Greek chicken shawarma in a pita, but instead of traditional tzatziki sauce, I'm using one of Hood's savory cottage cheese flavors: Cucumber and Dill.
