About Me

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

My name is Annie and I'm a 20-something graduate student living in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I'm currently in Year 3 of 6 in a Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program. Originally from Wisconsin and college-educated in St. Louis, land-locked Colorado was a big change. I miss being around water (Lake Michigan, the Mississippi!). Luckily, Colorado Springs is located in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Through 500 Bananas, I hope to become an active part of the healthy living blogging community. I've enjoyed reading food blogs since 2009 and figured it is finally time to start my own. I hope to meet others with a passion for damn good food, being active, and being happy!!
