plant wise

Since I missed last Wednesday’s post, I included some extra meals and things to make up for it! I was very happy to see that Trader Joe’s had Ginger Turmeric Tea back in stock. I bought three boxes as well as my other necessities like chocolate chips, frozen blueberries for my daily oatmeal, and salad […]

  Just a quick note before we get to the food today — there may be some issues with my site over the next few days. I didn’t notice anything weird but Dreamhost emailed me to tell me things are weird and that my plug-ins have all been disabled to determine the problem. What problem?! I don’t see […]

About That Ezekiel Bread & Meal Prep Recipes

  The highlight of my day yesterday was seeing that someone googled the following phrase that somehow brought them to my blog: “Telling someone off sarcastically“ Usually people find my blog by asking google if it’s okay to eat cake as a meal but telling people off? Sarcastically? Ha. Anyway. With my son home sick and not eating normally, in addition […]

  In my blogger brain, Wednesday = Food. I am skipping the What I Ate Wednesday fun though in favor of showing you more than just one day of what I have been eating. Breakfasts: I have been hooked on the blueberry pie protein oatmeal with a scoop of peanut butter on top…. Yet at the same […]

Fall-Inspired Healthy Carb Loading Recipes

Inspired By Fall! Carb Loading Recipes to fuel your muscles for Fall race season

  As you already know, I made Amanda’s Pumpkin Banana Bread the other day which got me thinking about all of the yummy Fall recipes I have been pinning lately. Did you happen to notice that amongst the gazillion Fall recipes floating around these days, so many of ingredients involved offer us runners lots of healthy carbohydrates […]

WIAW – The Blue Banana

Last year my mother forced me to try on a dress that I knew I was not my style, was too form-fitting and most likely too short. You love how your mom can still make you try things on even when you are in your thirties. When I came out of the fitting room, we […]

  I ran seven miles yesterday. I didn’t mean to, it just happened. Sounds funny, right? Like how do you just accidentally run seven miles. I don’t know, the first three are a given, then you get to four, and then five and one more you are at six and then your phone rings so […]

WIAW – Counting The Nutrients

  How often do you really eat something completely different from the day before? What I Ate Wednesday posts are always fun for me to do and definitely point out to me just how much peanut butter I consume on an hourly basis. These posts also help me to see that most of my diet is pretty clean, vegetable […]

Not like it is really anything new; the media is forever portraying the best foods to eat, the best meals to lose weight and the magical approach to becoming a be a better you plan.

More/Fitness Women’s Half Race Day

  Is it weird that I have never needed an alarm clock in my entire life? Like, if you tell me that I must be up at 4:00 am to give myself some time before getting out the door for a race, I will be up on schedule? I think it’s weird. Or maybe just one […]

What My Friend Ate Wednesday

  Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post should really be called “What My Friend Ate Wednesday” instead. One of my best friends (and loyal blog reader) decided last week that she wanted to “clean” up her diet. As she said to me, “It’s not that I eat fried, fast foods or even feel the need to […]

Forecast May Call For Baking

  He told me he loved me. Who knew making the little boy grilled cheese with some bacon on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread was the key to his heart? Now don’t get your panties in a bunch about me suddenly having bacon in the house. It just so happens that I had an Applegate coupon to use […]
