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! I even busted out a sun dress yesterday and a skirt Monday – and now today it’s back to scarves and hats and they are predicting snow for Friday. What the heck, weather? 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 …

Food + Fitness Fun

Hey friends! Happy Friday! In case you missed it yesterday – I shared 6 of my favorite healthy and delicious Super Bowl snack recipes for you to enjoy on Sunday! I had a fun treat yesterday – one of my best friends from college, Turner (that’s a nickname, in case you are wondering… her real name is Laura!) was in town for a conference. Hooray! Continue Reading …

Snowy Fitness + Food Highlights

Hey friends! On the fitness front this week, it started alllllll about the shoveling. Who else has been counting “shovel ALL the snow” as their main form of fitness lately?! Saturday, Sunday, and Monday were filled with shoveling. It is a serious workout! Yesterday I ditched the shoveling, made it back downtown to my coshared office, and Continue Reading …

Weekend Adventures

Hi friends! It was a nice and low key weekend here in DC! On Friday, I started the weekend a little early with a late afternoon run with my high school BFF Jenny. As I mentioned before, she had her second child a few months ago and is working to build back up her running endurance as she trains for a March half marathon. We planned to give 6 miles Continue Reading …
