Olive Oil Fried Eggs

I’ve been eating fried eggs for breakfast pretty much every day since freshman year of high school.

The Green Monstah Smoothie

Back in March, I ran an Instagram poll to determine what I should name this green smoothie. The winner was the Green Monstah. I’m originally from Boston, so I was into it.
