Everyone is very focused on the holidays and looking forward to Thanksgiving, right? Fall is my favorite season because of all the great foods that come back into season.  I wanted to share with you some of my favorites of the seasons.  Spoiler alert:  you will not see pumpkin on this list.  Don't get me [...]

I like to share something from the kitchen every week so this week I'm sharing a super easy breakfast thing. I use to wake up every morning to make us egg white omelets. That was before I started teaching cycle at 5AM so I had to find a way to make breakfast in the morning [...]

Last week my friend made egg rolls. I can't have egg rolls because they are fried. I thought I would try something different. Willie purchased some spring roll wrappers a while ago so I thought I would give it a try.   The ground chicken spring roll   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time [...]

How is everyone doing this week? How is your refrigerator feeling this week? It's Thursday so our fridge is starting to empty out which got me thinking about some things I can't get enough of lately. I love pumpkin, Willie hates it. That's fine. That means I can eat all the pumpkin and not have [...]

Zucchini and Summer Squash Fritters post image

Every time I got on instagram someone was posting pictures of zucchini fritters.  I've never had a zucchini fritter in my life and I definitely didn't know how to make them. I thought I would give it a go on my own terms but first I needed to know the basic of a fritter. So [...]

It's a marathon week so I don't do weights.  I didn't go to my usual group Power class this morning.  Instead, I stayed in and did some strength training with the ladies of Tone It Up.  I seriously love these workouts.  You can get them for free on their youtube or buy a DVD like [...]

Good morning everyone!  I hope the weekend is starting off just right for you.  Guess what I did this morning? I ran my taper run this morning. Taper is a blessing and a curse because I've been on a running high (mileage) lately but now it's time to wind that down because the 26.2 is [...]

I hope everyone is having a good day.  I think I'm a little worn out from my workout yesterday.  I'm feeling a little lazy so I'll take it. My mid-week long run turned out longer than I expected. Let me tell you, I didn't feel like I ran 8 miles until I tried to sneak [...]

Tuna Chickpea Salad

This past weekend I took my bestie to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods!  She had never been.  I was shocked when I found this out because I love those places.  Any health foodie loves Whole Foods, right?  Yes I know it's expensive BUT you can find stuff in that store you can't get most places. [...]
