A New Easy Breakfast Idea + Farmers Market Fun + Shoulder Mobility Moves

Hey guys! Before I get into today’s content, a heads up that a few of my posts have gotten a little photo upgrade for Pinterest (are you on Pinterest?

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Power Bowl

We had a bunch of sweet potato/yellow pepper hash leftover from Mother’s day brunch at our place, so I threw together an easy Mexican themed sweet potato and black bean power bowl for lunch yesterday.

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?

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.
