• Savor!

    This is a food blog dedicated to life through an exploration of food wonders. I get so focused on where I’m going and it’s easy to forget that the distractions are sometimes what make a tough day, week or year turn into a moment of felicity. For those who haven’t watched the stage play turned into movie Driving Miss Daisy, the story goes like this: An elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta can no longer drive. Her son insists she allow him to hire a driver, which in the 1950s meant a black man. She resists any change in her life but, Hoke, the driver is hired by her son. She refuses to allow him to drive her anywhere at first, but Hoke slowly wins her over with his native good graces. It covers over twenty years of the pair’s life together as they slowly build a relationship that transcends their differences(IMDb). As Hoke slowly wins over miss Daisy and uplifts her spirit, I’m hoping this enduring food journey will do the same for me. Savor as the world takes me on this trip of Dining Miss Jenna!

Smoothie Takes the Pain Away

In the past, I have experienced painful menstrual cramps every month. I have taken bottles and bottles of icky ibuprofen to mask the pain.

Brain Craves

To Shift or Not to Shift

                  Once upon a time, our culture was promoting women to pack on the pounds, yet now we mercilessly encourage skinny-folked females. Like the above advertisement suggests, what’s ‘cool’ frequently changes throughout the timeline of life. I realized that I have wasted precious folds of time using … Continue reading

Raspberry Burrito

Quick, edgy and comforting, I enjoy a raspberry burrito for an early morning  jazz routine in my belly. Ingredients Corn tortilla (denser is better) Raspberries Warm or … Continue reading

Sweetato Ooze

While spending some arctic wintertime in my hometown of Fargo, ND, I have dropped the salad routine and have been eating nothing but warm, cooked food. This seems obvious enough, but once I started doing that, my body stopped craving ridiculous amounts of chocolate croissants and pizza which made me rejoice! Satisfying as a plum … Continue reading

  Face the fear, Jenna! Ok, let’s go. I have been completely absent from this blog for a couple of months, because I’ve been struggling with an eating disorder and a food addiction for the past year.

Banana and fish. Specifically fresh banana alongside sauteed/seasoned fish. … Continue reading

Kalecome Back

It’s been a while!  I have just returned to Fargo, ND from Portland, OR.  And while I was in Portland, I discovered that eating the bunchy leafy green called Kale was something I’d been missing out on my whole life.  Instead of decorating salad bowls on the buffet line, this “queen of green” is electrifyingly … Continue reading
