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 […]

Our 9th annual Mother’s Day breakfast tradition is in the books! No joke, if you don’t arrive at Maureen’s Kitchen when they open at 7:00 AM, you are going to wait. We pulled in at 6:58 AM to see a line at the door. If you get there at 7:15, trust me when I say […]

What Goes In My Oatmeal + Power Blend Salads

  Another Nor’Easter of snow on its way here to New York today. I’m not going to complain, just going to hope this is the last of it! They can’t even figure out if they should close the schools yet. It’s not supposed to get bad until later AND if they close a full day, […]

    Mother’s Day is Sunday and it has basically become my favorite day of the year. In case you didn’t already know from previous years here on the blog, my son and I have a very special Mother’s Day breakfast tradition.

Rotating Breakfast, Passover & Macaroons

  It’s been a nice week so far with my son off from school for Passover and Spring Break. No early morning wake ups or rushing out the door needed! Although, the weather has been PERFECT so running in the morning has been a pleasure. I ran in shorts and a t-shirt yesterday! Anyway, I […]

  In my head this week was going to go slow but look, it’s already Wednesday! Here’s a peak at what I ate yesterday… Breakfast: This former favorite breakfast of mine of an English muffin with peanut butter has been working really well for me once again so I am continuing to go with it even […]

Friday Favorites May 2016

Maureen's Kitchen Pancakes

    I haven’t done a Friday Favorites post in a forever! I have a bunch of things I am loving this week so let’s get to it! Hair Care: I restocked my favorite Kerastase products! I had let my bottles run out and really waited way too long before replacing them. While Kerastase products are […]

  Good morning! I am all cheery today because my son is off from school the rest of the week (another spring break) so we are in no rush to get out the door. Yesterday was my last serious run before Sunday’s race so I will head out at my leisure this morning to run just […]

What I Ate Wednesday 3.16.16

  I woke up in a bit of a mood both Monday and Tuesday morning. Not tired per say, just moody. Now, of course there’s always that chance that my moodiness may just be a product of my ever-charming, often hormonally driven + Gemini + Jewish mother + New Yorker personality but that wasn’t quite it. It took me until Tuesday morning, as I […]
