Recipe Challenge: Sweet Potato, Black Bean & Quinoa Burgers

recipe challenge: sweet potato black bean & quinoa burgers

  I go through phases with my cravings and right now, it’s all about veggie burgers! Last week, when I saw Laura was having the exact same craving, I told her that we needed to challenge ourselves to make some of the veggie burger recipes we have pinned to our Pinterest boards rather than rely […]

what I didn’t cook & links I am loving

Links I am Loving!

  You know you had yourself quite the busy week when you haven’t taken one food picture since Monday. Gosh I wish I could get the s’mores cupcake back that I had the other night so I could share it with you < – blogger brain thinking out loud. Aside from that s’mores cupcake (and the top […]

WIAW- My Appetite Is My Clock

  I often say that I notice the time change through my appetite because I find myself hungrier earlier than the clock thinks I should be hungry but the truth is, my appetite never really respected the concept of standard meal times anyway. When I am hungry, I am HUNGRY which translates as I must eat my meal now regardless […]

Trader Joe’s Light Vanilla Ice Cream & Other Stuff I Think You Need

  My son informed me that the girls are wearing our Lulu Headbands as a fashion accessory each day to school. As often as I question if I am dressing like the kids, this absolutely counts as the kids dressing like adults. And, if they can wear our headbands, we can still shop at Abercrombie. I […]

Random Issues and Birthday Banana Crisp

I may have an insatiable sweet tooth but when it comes to the roasted vegetables from the Whole Foods food bar, I have zero will power. I was at Whole Foods over the weekend just to pick up wild-caught salmon to cook for my mother’s birthday dinner (she loves salmon, me not so much at all unless it […]

What I Ate In Florida…

My quick weekend away was just a little more than 48 hours of time yet in those hours were lots of good foods. Let’s start with the flight down to Florida on Friday. I brought my own salad from home to eat on the plane.   Roasted sweet potato wedges on top of a simple salad with […]

Peanut Butter And Berry Quinoa

  I had been mentally planning to run a four mile race this morning but was waiting until the last-minute to sign up because I wanted to ensure the weather forecast was ideal and that honestly, I didn’t have anything else on the agenda that I felt like doing instead. I love to run and I don’t […]

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 […]

Three Tip Tuesday- Iron

  Yesterday’s treadmill run: 5 miles. Thankfully no one tried to talk to me. I kept the pace easy and stopped to stretch I think after each mile. While I wasn’t sore or stiff  from Saturday’s treadmill half marathon, I am making an attempt this week to keep things a bit light. If you recall, […]

Quinoa And Ants On A Different Log

  Let’s start this week off with a direct quote from my horoscope: “While you don’t have A WAY to influence the future right now, you do have THE POWER to influence it, so think only happy, hopeful thoughts.” I like that. A lot. Saturday’s Long Run. On the treadmill. Let’s discuss. One of my biggest […]

WIAW Plus My Magical Adidas Sneakers

  Just like someone who looks for the magic food or diet plan to lose weight easily, I look for the perfect sneaker to support my feet and provide me with magical runs each and every day. As if there is some miracle of a running shoe that keeps you hitting those paces and happy endorphins each […]

Running Observations And Quinoa Flakes Breading Recipes

Oh hi! Over the weekend I realized some things and thought I would share them with you this morning: Observation #1: I like to run in the rain. Weird? Yes, I think so. At least for me. I mean, when would I ever want to spend time in the rain? Never. Except while running. As […]
