My Former Whole Foods Food Bar Box

Whole Foods

  So this is rather interesting and worth discussing. When we arrived in Albany on Saturday (we were up there for a Bar Mitzvah), we went straight to Whole Foods for a quick bite to eat. The old me loved the Whole Foods food bar. While I really don’t eat at Whole Foods anymore, my […]

Meatless Monday – Easiest Shepherd’s Pie Ever

shephard's-pie

  Would you believe that I have ANOTHER recipe for you today? And, get this, it’s not dessert! So last week I was over-focusing on the fact that my son really doesn’t eat vegetables. And while I am aware that most children don’t love their produce, I have decided it is slightly unacceptable that my son doesn’t make […]

WIAW – Rest Day From Running And Vegetables

The rain is currently coming down pretty heavy outside my window. Wet and dreary weather would have worked perfectly for me had I planned on a rest day for today. Keyword phrase here:  Had I planned. I can’t plan rest days. I can consider a certain day of the week where I may want a rest day to occur but more often […]

Put Away Your Measuring Cup

  I try not to dwell on things but part of me will forever live in fear of hitting publish and losing most of my post again. I am damaged for blogging life I tell you. The worst part about technological mishaps is that there is rarely an explanation. Oh, you lost your post? It happens. […]

NNM And Little Changes Lead To Big Results

  Pandora was really kind to me yesterday morning. I don’t know how Tiffany landed on a Pitbull station but I will certainly take it. Maybe Debbie Gibson will be next? 30 minutes on the elliptical plus a few minutes dilly dallying with weights for the biceps and I was done. Short workouts like this often leave […]

What My Friend Ate Wednesday

  Today’s What I Ate Wednesday post should really be called “What My Friend Ate Wednesday” instead. One of my best friends (and loyal blog reader) decided last week that she wanted to “clean” up her diet. As she said to me, “It’s not that I eat fried, fast foods or even feel the need to […]

Another Snow Day and a Cold Stone Sundae

  While everyone else is recapping the Super Bowl, I much prefer to recap the best thing I ate over the weekend. If this Cold Stone Sundae complete with a cherry on top doesn’t mirror your vision of happiness then we probably can’t be friends. Not only was the chocolate dipped waffle bowl super big […]

Whole Foods Haul, Oatmeal Tips And Sesame Street

  I have been wanting to tell you something since I had lunch at Whole Foods on Saturday. Worth every penny by the way. Don’t ask me what was in the box – I get all scoop-happy when I see my favorite roasted anything and just pile it all on into the brown box. OK […]

What I Ate Wednesday – Blinded By Oatmeal Love

  It’s been a while since my last What I Ate Wednesday post, hasn’t it? I am popping in quick this morning because I have to be out the door super super early for a family event in Manhattan. Remember last week when my cousin had a baby? Today is the bris. For my local […]

Chocolate Cake On The Mind But Let’s Talk About Dinner

  You are in luck this morning; I have to get the little boy up and out early for a routine doctor’s appointment therefore I do not have a lot of time to rehash my love for the chocolate fudge cookie dough layer cake or discuss with you how I am still thinking about it, talking […]

WIAW – Homemade Hummus and Winter Apples

  Wow. Loving the comments on yesterday’s post! It is SO NICE  to know that not only are we learning to love life without letting a scale determine our mood but OH MY, how refreshing to realize and see how not alone we all are in our experiences. I do have a part two in mind for yesterday’s […]

Weekend Time – Needing a Break From Routine

It may be close to freezing this morning, I may need to bundle up in layers and hope to avoid frost bite while running but I don’t care at the moment – I am just happy it is Friday. I am more than ready for a break from the weekday routine. Yesterday, in between after […]
