Why are my weekend recaps mostly about food?

  As I put this post together, I realize that I always end up with weekend recaps mostly about food! You may remember that Maoz is one of my favorite places for a loaded up vegetarian salad bowl. It’s been a while since I last had a Maoz salad so this bowl was extra special […]

Small Changes For The Bigger Results

start stop keep

  Who wants to take my place this morning as the person in charge of getting my son up and out the door for school for the first time in two weeks? I didn’t think I would have any volunteers. It isn’t going to pretty. Thankfully I am a morning person, otherwise first mornings back to the routine would […]

Thinking Out Loud…

Whole Foods Food Bar

I really like nice restaurants. I enjoy getting dressed up and dining out so fancy with so many forks and spoons next to my plate that I don’t even know which to use for which course. However, if you bring me to Whole Foods and tell me that I can have as much as I want from the […]

What We Ate – Birthday Edition

It isn’t often that you find people who actually care to hear you ramble on about a fudge cake or a delicious restaurant. In fact, my friends and family often look at me funny when I take cake selecting and restaurant menus so seriously. I’m so glad you share in my excitement just so I can […]

What I Ate Wednesday Fun

  You are going to be so proud of my will power. I was in Whole Foods on Monday shopping for Rosh Hashanah and completely held myself together when passing the food bar. The roasted vegetables display was bountiful and beautiful BUT I was able to resist and my wallet was super thankful. I have even held […]

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 […]

WIAW- Why Are Blueberries So Expensive?

  Oh hello. It’s raining. And pouring. Thankfully, no one around my house is snoring. I have no patience for such a sound. Let’s take a look at what I have been eating this week. I changed up the usual format to keep things interesting… Breakfast Lately:   Important things to note: *I am still on […]

My Kind Of Plant-Based Power Bowl

  I did a terrible thing Friday night and I hope you will forgive me. I enjoyed a slice of chocolate cake. The Cheesecake Factory’s Chocolate Tower Cake to be specific. I even shared it. The terrible part isn’t that I shared the cake (I did so willingly), it’s that I didn’t get a picture of it […]

What I Ate Wednesday – Meatless Meatball Recipe!

  I am so glad that today is What I Ate Wednesday because I finally have the recipe for the meatless meatballs all ready to share with you. Before I get to the recipe though, let’s take a look at some other fun foods I have been enjoying: BREAKFAST: While I am still totally on […]

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 […]

Long Run, Donuts, Red Mango and Whole Foods Food Bar Fun

  I know you spent your weekend wondering if I found time to make the donuts. Oh…You bet I did. I actually squeezed in some baking time late Saturday afternoon before I went out for dinner. Sushi. Amazing. Sorry. No Pictures. I really wasn’t in the mood to bake but I felt that the activity would keep […]
