veggie burger salad

  Lots of good food going on lately! I made a version of my three ingredient pancake a few times this week, adding blueberries as it cooked along with cherries and Skoop B-Strong for added protein. I am very into cherries right now! I do have a slight allergy to raw cherries but so long […]

when you just need a brownie sundae

  Every so often, I have a day when I am hungry yet nothing is appealing to me. Monday was one of those days. Breakfast is never really my issue. I really like and look forward to a small bowl of oatmeal with banana (plus coffee!) before my run and I always like oatmeal after my […]

What I Ate Wednesday 1/27/16

  Time to talk food! Breakfast: My breakfast has basically looked like this picture for the last several days. That’s what happens when you have fresh blueberries in the house. They overtake your oatmeal. Lunch: I have been rotating two lunches – one sweet when I am in the mood for sweet and one a little more […]

Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas & Next Week’s Meal Plan

Thankgiving Recipes for a very Happy Holiday

  We are quickly approaching that time of the year when everyone starts to freak out over Thanksgiving dinner and how it will magically make you gain 20 pounds so let’s starve ourselves before and after just so we can have one day of stuffing and pie. Or, we encounter the reverse attitude of Thanksgiving will make […]

Grain Free Skillet Potato Lasagna

cast iron skillet potato lasagna

  If you are wondering what I did yesterday after a short morning run, I was in my kitchen making this really easy grain free skillet potato lasagna. I cooked up this savory recipe in the morning on purpose so that I wouldn’t sample it as I made it because normally at 10:00 am, the last thing I want to eat is something from my cast […]

Japanese Sweet Potatoes & Next Week’s Meal Plan

roasted japanese sweet potatoes

  Confession: I went out of my way to go to Whole Foods, when I really could have picked up everything I needed at Trader Joe’s, simply because I wanted a snack from the food bar while I shopped. I couldn’t help myself, I love Whole Foods’ roasted vegetables. I didn’t seem to need that much from the grocery stores although I […]

Do I Eat The Best Foods For Runners?

sweet potatoes

  As runners, what we eat is a big deal. Not only for our massive appetites and equally massive cravings but for our strength, endurance and recovery. There are lots of foods recommended for runners but just because an article says we should eat it, doesn’t mean that we can or do. As individuals, we are each unique. Allergies, lifestyle […]

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash With Brussels Sprouts

I’m a real good cook and an even better baker but I will never strive to be a food blogger. Or food photographer. In fact, if there wasn’t already camera built into my phone, I would probably still be making use of my Fisher Price blue camera with the separate attachment for the flash (please tell me you had […]

WIAW- My Idea of Convenience Foods

  My son is on a let-me-cook-everything-for-myself kick since the baking of the cookies  on Monday. He made his own breakfast and even said I should take a picture for you. If you are wondering why there are no berries on his plate, it is because I am struggling this week to locate strawberries and […]

WIAW – Finally Used My Frozen Bananas

chick pea avocado salad

 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 […]

Quick and Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Bites

Good morning! How is your weekend going? Mine is much busier than expected which is why I am glad I stopped into Whole Foods and Shop Rite on Friday. I was running low on oatmeal, the Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt was on sale and check it out –> blueberries! I wanted to drop in this […]

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 […]
