West Coast Bound + A Tasty Lunch or Dinner Idea

airport sunrise

Hi friends! I’m west coast bound this morning – headed out to San Diego to have a mini-reunion with a few of my grad school friends! I had a 4:30 a.m. wake up call – oof – but it will be worth it to get out there at a decent hour. I’m now in Houston on a layover – next stop, California! In other news, can summer last forever? It was a beautiful Continue Reading …

Food + Fitness Fun this week

IMG_8158

Hello my lovely friends! Are my American readers starting to get pumped for the long holiday weekend? I know I am! To get into the spirit, I’ve been enjoying some red, white, and blue oatmeal this week. ;) Just my Perfect Microwave Banana Oatmeal (<—recipe) with some cottage cheese stirred in post-cooking, and topped with fresh berries and some Continue Reading …

Hi friends! Has this week been flying by for anyone else? It’s been a busy but good one over here in fANNEtastic food land! Let’s kick off today’s post with a little packed lunch inspiration.

Spring Makes Everything Happier

Every winter, I slog through cold, dark, and dreary runs, wondering if maybe I don’t actually love running as much as I thought I did. And then every spring, I fall in love with running all over again. I was planning on sleeping in this morning; I even signed up for a yoga class tonight after work at Epic Yoga in Dupont via ClassPass (it’s too Continue Reading …

Poached Eggs FTW + Other Tastiness

IMG_7766

Hi friends! While in Canada last week, I rekindled my love affair with poached eggs. I’m normally a fried egg (runny yolk) sort of girl, mostly because they are easy to make and I was scared to try poached eggs at home. But last week I was on a big poached egg kick – I ordered a couple almost every day at breakfast. So, this week I decided I had Continue Reading …

Back to the Track + Recent Eats

IMG_0001

Hi friends! Guess what? I FINALLY made it back to the track this morning! Between all the travel I’ve been doing and all the snow/ice we had over the past month and a half, I hadn’t been to the track for my Potomac River Runners group in wayyyyyy too long. I skipped last Thursday and this Tuesday because of the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC half marathon, but Continue Reading …

A Swim, A Salad, and The World’s Most Random Casserole

IMG_6508

Morning, friends! We have some snow here in DC today – enough to cancel my morning track workout and to give the government a 2 hour delay, but that’s about it. I hope those of you farther north are staying safe under the piles of white stuff it sounds like you’re getting – yikes! Since my track workout was cancelled, I decided spur of the moment Continue Reading …

It’s Friday, my friends! And it’s a beautiful one, too. :) Love those gorgeous fall leaves! You know what I really love about running? It gives me the chance to get outside and enjoy the day and some fresh air first thing. And if it’s a little chilly, that’s fine, because I’m running! Continue Reading …
