Not A Weekly Workout Recap Post


Last week was the first time in oh, nine years, that I didn’t keep track of my workouts in order to write a blog post. I’m such a routine person that it’s actually weird for me to say that I’m tired of the routine of sharing my workouts each week. We all know my workouts […]

Recent Meals + Breakfast Change?


Halfway through the week! Let’s start today’s post with my post-run beach lunch of a bialy with vegetable cream cheese and tomato. It had been a good two weeks since I last had a salad from Chopt. No spicy-sweet peppers this time! I swapped those out for sweet potatoes. Everything is chopped so small that […]

Beach Lunches + Salad Bowls + Chickpea Pasta


I love that it’s Wednesday already. I’ve put together a whole bunch of random meals from the past few days. Somehow I missed a picture of my oreo shake from Shack Shack and any of the pizza I’ve eaten recently. Not sure how that happened! I had this Chopt salad after a one-hour massage last […]

What I’ve Eaten Lately


Time for recent meals again! I had a vegetarian salad bowl from Maoz over the weekend. Maoz has always been a favorite of mine – especially back in the day when I could load the toppings myself into the bowl at the city Maoz locations. For this Maoz salad bowl, I had them drizzle tahini […]

Diet Nonsense + Recent Meals + Best Bagels

I’m happy to report that I haven’t seen too much about January diets so far this year. You know, the whole new year, new diet, new challenge, new workout routine, “new you” nonsense? I stopped following so many of those types of influencers over the years because I can’t stand that mindset and the January approach […]

Friday Favorites: Cravings + Stoney Clover + Lululemon Sale

This week flew right by, right? I’m certainly not complaining and more than happy to discuss my favorites from this week… Favorite Food: Summer running has increased my food cravings for sure. Usually, I go about my day with my normal appetite and normal interest in food. Earlier this week, my appetite was much stronger […]

Race Recovery Food + Salads + Current TJ Favorite

  Well, I am sufficiently thrown off this week to know that today is Wednesday! Not only because Monday was a holiday but because I shared my race recap yesterday when I don’t usually post on Tuesday’s. Anyway. Wednesday. Food. Let’s begin. After Sunday’s race, I had the watermelon I packed for the car ride […]

WIAW- not one vegetable in this post

grilled mozzarella cheese

  That’s right, vegetables are an afterthought these days. Overall I have been feeling much better after that virus (which I decided was not a virus but some sort of food poisoning instead) but my stomach remains a bit sensitive which is so hard for someone like me who lives mostly on plant-based foods. Fruits and vegetables, which I normally thrive […]
