At-Home Salad Ideas + Recent Meals (um, salads and pizza!)

beet greek salad

  Last week I mentioned that I would share more about salads this week. This is a little funny as I think all I do is share about salads (and pizza I guess). BUT! I am going to list my favorite at-home salad combinations so that you can make salads at home that you actually […]

Playoff Hockey Fan Food Highlights (recent eats)

piccolo salad

Well, I might as well make today’s food post all about our hockey fan foods as life right now is all about Islanders playoff hockey for sure! On the way to the Islanders game last Friday night, we stopped for dinner at Piccolo. The main reason we chose Piccolo was for their bread basket which always […]

Recent Meals + Vegan Cobb Salad + Intuitive Eating

vegan Cobb salad

I managed to capture a few recent meals worth sharing with you today!  Happy to be back to my favorite whole wheat margarita slice from Mario’s. Remember last week I went with the veggie slice instead? That was a mistake. Not that the veggie slice is bad, I just like the margarita pizza better right […]

Billy Joel New Year’s Eve + Some Recent Eats

Does anyone know what day it is? This week is going to feel weird until it’s over, isn’t it. That’s just how it goes with the holidays. So. While I find most New Year’s Eve hoopla overrated, Billy Joel was playing at the Coliseum so like, why not go?! I’m not much of a concert […]

Placed Second + Can’t Eat Avocado + Recent Eats

town bagel

  Well, I should probably edit yesterday’s 5k race recap to include the race results now that I have them. I placed second for my age even after the whole dropping the phone fiasco at the start. My first race in the 40-44 age division! This is now the second time I found out that […]

Random Meals + My Thoughts On Taking Pictures Of Food

English muffin

  Today’s post is a collection of random meals that I’ve had over the last several days. Sometimes I realize that I’ve forgotten to take pictures of my meals. While I’m definitely a healthy eater and total foodie who loves to dine out, keeping up with meal photography and documentation is not what I want […]

Normal Hungry Person + Recent Eats


  My appetite has been A DREAM without running. You have no idea! As a runner, I have gotten so used to being that person who NEEDS TO EAT AND EAT NOW. I don’t feel that way right now which is making this little break from running so very enjoyable. It’s nice to be a […]

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 […]

    I’ve got some recent eats and go-to meals to share today! Chopt for lunch! I know it doesn’t look like much but I do love this salad. Lately my go-to combination is romaine, spinach, quinoa, avocado, spicy peppers, charred onions, hearts of palm and spicy tahini dressing (on the side). There’s something about […]
