It’s my birthday (!!) + a lifestyle blog re-launch

No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. It really is my birthday – and I’m turning 29!

I’m celebrating tonight in Jersey City with my family and friends, and I can’t wait to ring in this next year of my life. There is so much I want to accomplish, and I’m so blessed to be where I am in my life. I’m happier and healthier than ever, and I have Inspiralized and my husband to thank for that!

Also in celebration of my 29th year, I am re-launching my lifestyle blog, inspiralizedali! I launched this site late last summer and shortly thereafter signed a deal for my second cookbook and unfortunately, had to devote all of my extra time to writing and recipe testing, so the site got put on the back burner, although I’ve been casually posting personal content on the @inspiralizedali Instagram.

But now, alas, it’s time to relaunch – and I’m so excited to share a more personal side of Ali on this lifestyle site. If you haven’t noticed already, I have a lot to say 🙂

Thanks in advance for all the birthday wishes – I know I say this all the time but I consider you all my extended friends and family, and I’m so lucky to have you take part in every part of my journey – birthdays or recipes, whatever!

And I’d love to hear your feedback on the new site! Now, it’s time for that champagne…

Thank you so much Heather!
Happy Birthday, Ali! I ironically posted a spiralized recipe today so I must have subconsciously known it was your birthday :) Have the best day!

Happy birthday Ali!! So glad you're relaunching the lifestyle blog. Loved your post about the best sports bras for bigger chests!!! I'm hoping you do a post about the Peloton bike. I've finally decided to buy one after I have my baby this month. Since I live in MI, I've never been on the bike and dont know anyone who personally owns one. Would love to hear your thoughts about purchasing one. Thanks!!

GREEK CHICKEN ZOODLE SOUP w/ DILL 🍜 - new on the blog and from @phoebelapine's new book #SIBOMadeSimple 📚⁣

now, if you don't know who Phoebe is, def give her a follow (@phoebelapine!) she's such an inspiration and on a mission to help people feel better. 🌿 if you or someone you know is struggling with SIBO, I can't recommend this book enough. it's masterfully written, organized, and the recipes are ones you'll go back to over and over again. ⁣

congrats to Phoebe on this beautiful book - and head over to the blog to check out this recipe! 📌 #zoodles #zucchininoodles #chickennoodlesoup #healthysoup #SIBO

finally made @feedinglittles' peanut butter chocolate chip cookies 🍪 🥜 and they literally took me 16 minutes start to finish. but now I have 40 peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and my kids can only eat so many 👦🏼🧒🏻 okay, it's a good problem to have 😇⁣

what's your go-to easy cookie recipe? 👇🏼👇🏼  like one bowl, 5-ingredient kind of recipes (like this one!) if it's by a food blogger, tag them below and let me know the title of the recipe so I can search!⁣

okay okay, I promise I'll be explaining soon why I'm feverishly testing all of these recipes and not (yet!) sharing the recipes. 😇 but I just had to share this photo because these little Carrot Dogs in Blankets 🥕 came out so well , my picky dad (he's a great man but has a very judgy/picky palate), ate one and said, "tastes like a hot dog!" 🌭 👏🏼⁣

would you try them?! 👇🏼⁣

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔
