Finally Tried Plant Wise (plus other recent meals)

plantwise eatery

I finally tried Plant Wise Eatery and of course, now I’m obsessed. Plant Wise is not far from my house but closer to where I used to live and not really in the direction I head most of the time. However, I will now make it more of a destination area because I can’t get enough of […]

Seven meals to share with you today! Let’s start with pizza. 🙂 I had my usual whole wheat margarita pizza with a salad the other night. This dinner is really one of my favorite go-to meals. Another night turned into pizza for dinner too. This time it was the vegetable slice from Mario’s. The crust […]

Easy Recipes To Make Right Now While Stuck At Home

Cold Smores

Now is a really good time to share some of my easy-to-make recipes from past years on the blog. Obviously, we know that I don’t create new recipes these days (unless you want to learn how I make a pizza bagel) but I feel that I did put in my time in the kitchen during […]

Easy To Make Vegetarian Recipes (and cookies too!)

Round up of easy to make vegetarian recipes worth trying this week!

  I decided to give my recipe section of the blog some attention by highlighting a few easy to make vegetarian recipes that I haven’t talked about in a long time! At least I do not think that I have? I hope that one of these recipes inspires you to try a new salad combination […]

That Time I Ate A Piece Of Chicken By Accident

Cheesecake Factory salad

  Oh boy. I HATE when I miss a What I Ate Wednesday post. This week has been a little bit nutty for me routine wise which didn’t help me to remember to take  pictures, especially of breakfast, for yesterday’s post. Why can’t I remember to take pictures at breakfast?! Probably because I’m still half […]

  I had THE BEST vegetarian tacos at Dos Caminos Monday night and couldn’t wait to tell you about them today! Let’s back up a bit first to Monday morning. Breakfast: I’m still eating a super small bowl of oatmeal before I head out for my run. After my workout and shower, I had this […]

Thanksgiving Highlights 2016

  I meant to pop in yesterday morning but here’s what happened: First, I didn’t open my laptop on Wednesday beyond 2:30 pm. My son and I went out in the afternoon after I picked him up from school and once we got home after dinner, I considered myself unplugged from everything other than my television […]

  It’s Friday which means it’s time for week #2 of the Recipe Challenge Laura and I created for ourselves! In case you missed our first Recipe Challenge last week, you can check it out here. I loved those sweet potato, black bean and quinoa burgers. I had frozen a few of the burger patties from […]

New Super Salad Recipe


    I am obsessed with a new super salad combination this week and I have Gina (Fitnessista) to thank for it! She posted this Superfood Salad recipe the other day which sparked my interest and craving for making my own version almost immediately. I have now made my version of Gina’s Superfood salad a few times since she shared […]

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes

Cold Stone

  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my most favorite blogs and the first blog I ever read!) shared a terrific post last week called Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works For You. I think what I love most about her post is how she points out that a diet […]

Trader Joe’s Pantry Favorites

Trader Joe's Pantry Favorites

  Would you believe I made it another whole week without going food shopping?! I’m all excited about this ridiculously minor feat in my life but I remain convinced that getting myself down to one good food shop a week will save me some money and free up my errand-running time for other things. I am […]

Recent Eats

  In my blogger brain, Wednesday = Food. I am skipping the What I Ate Wednesday fun though in favor of showing you more than just one day of what I have been eating. Breakfasts: I have been hooked on the blueberry pie protein oatmeal with a scoop of peanut butter on top…. Yet at the same […]
