Recent Eats

Hey friends! There’s been a lot of fitness talk over here lately and not a whole lot of food. Let’s discuss some recent eats of note, shall we? One night last week Matt and I threw together a really easy stir fry for dinner – peppers, asparagus, and frozen string beans with some grass fed beef. We used Tessesmae’s Soy Ginger dressing as the Continue Reading …

Mason Jar Kale Salad Recipe

This nutritious and portable Mason Jar Kale Salad recipe makes a fun packed lunch! Add some carbs (bread, or a cooked whole grain on the salad) to make it a meal. As part of the Let’s Move!

Adventures in Food + Fitness

Happy Wednesday! It’s a cold and very windy one over here – so lame after the gorgeous warm weather we were teased with earlier this week!

Oh well – I guess it’s a good excuse to Continue Reading …

Eats/Exercise + NEDA Week

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I’m proud because I dragged myself out of bed yesterday and to the track – in the RAIN. Full disclosure is that it wasn’t raining when I got up and got dressed, and by the time it started, I was already ready to go and walking out the door – bailing at that point seemed silly. ;) As always, what seemed like a Continue Reading …

Why You Should Start Eating Sauerkraut

Hello my friends! You know what I’ve been really into lately? Sauerkraut. File this under “sounds weird, tastes awesome” – I made a big salad for lunch yesterday with greens, brown rice, canned tuna (mixed with some dijon mustard), and a big ole serving of sauerkraut. Topped with balsamic vinaigrette (homemade – olive oil + lemon juice + dijon Continue Reading …

Wednesday Randomness

Hey friends! I’ve been all about the grain salads this week for lunch – anyone else? Grain salads are awesome because they are 1) super satisfying with the veggie volume, and 2) really fast to throw together. And the grains made them way more satisfying than regular salads! For this variation, I mixed together arugula with 90 second brown Continue Reading …
