Recent Eats: Lunches + Dinners (Plus French Fries!)


    Today let’s take a look at my recent lunches and dinners! I’ve been enjoying English muffins with peanut butter for lunch quite often lately. I don’t always feel like savory foods like salads and power bowls for lunch so this solves the problem when my cravings vary. Sometimes I make an English muffin […]

What I Ate Wednesday 3.16.16

protein pancake

  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 […]

Recent Eats

  It’s Wednesday, which in my blog-writing mind translates as the day where I share what I have been eating. I realized I had a collection of meals worth talking about so instead of sharing a day of food and linking up with the What I Ate Wednesday fun, I put together a little bit more […]

What I Ate Yesterday

    A quick look at what I ate yesterday… I can’t remember the last time I ate just one breakfast and I also can’t remember the last time I was able to sip my first cup of coffee at a leisurely pace rather than gulp it down in two seconds. Early morning (as in […]

WIAW on Monday


  I can’t thank you enough for your kind words and support regarding yesterday’s post. It wasn’t that easy for me to share but I can’t say it was overly difficult either. It felt great putting that post together and the truth is, I am more than fine. Really. Fine. The older I get, the […]

What We Ate Snow Day

    Because you want to know what I look like when I shovel snow… I originally thought that this weeks What I Ate Wednesday would be about what I ate yesterday while in the city for an event but of course that event was postponed due to the blizzard. So instead let’s just look at […]

What Do You Mean You Forgot To Eat?

  I missed a meal once. It was the summer of 2003, I was probably somewhere around six months pregnant. I had a Chicken Parmesan Panini for lunch which made me so nauseous that I couldn’t bring myself to eat an afternoon snack or dinner. Can you believe it? Not even dinner! Wait – it’s slowly coming back […]

WIAW – National Strawberry Parfait Day

I still haven’t had a chance to replace my son’s cell phone. I realize that if it were my cell phone that somehow landed in a pool, I would have found the seconds to sit at Verizon but it wasn’t mine, he is only ten and being unfaceplanted from FaceTime for 48 hours isn’t the […]

WIAW and National Running Day

  It’s National Running Day! National Running Day occurs the first Wednesday in June (last year on my birthday!) and is a coast-to-coast celebration of running. It’s a day to reflect on your love of running or make the decision to lace up and give running a try for the first time! In honor of today’s […]

WIAW – Finally Used My Frozen Bananas

  My little baby may be a big shot at the current age of ten but when he is asleep in the backseat of my car, he looks just like he did when he was a toddler. I used to drive around in circles back then just to get him to sleep since he refused […]

WIAW – Food For Life Bread, Condiments and Red Mango

  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 […]
