Butternut Squash and Goats Cheese Pizza

For the last six months, I have been trying to eat real. That means trying to make as much from scratch as I possibly can, and trying to remove processed foods from my diet. Making your own pizza, for example, has various commitment levels to how homemade you want to go. You can buy it from…

Turkey and Sweet Potato Pita Pockets

, ,
Sometimes when in recipe development stage, I think about meals I have enjoyed in my favorite restaurants, and how I could either replicate, or make a healthier version of them. This is how the idea for these pita pockets started out. I thought of them as a different adaptation….maybe even more nutritious version of the…

Six Super Food Salad

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of ups and downs; so many wonderful moments as I am surrounded with love, and some major challenges to keep my feet on the ground. I have had my parents here this week, and we have been making the most of their time by enjoying the best…

On Wednesday I covered the first 13 miles of my debut marathon. Click HERE to read Part I. Today I will cover the second half; the part where it really gets interesting (well, I hope). Even if I can prevent just one person from going through what I did those last 7 miles, then exposing…

The Philadelphia Marathon Part I (My Debut)

Wish I had thought of this earlier! #Healthy Dinners: Sweet potato and Butternut squash shepherds pie. Delicious comfort food, packed with nutrition.

Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Shepherds Pie

In England, Shepherds Pie is a staple dish for most families. I know my family has it on a regular basis. The English (maybe even the British) have become very defensive when it comes to the name of this dish. Shepherds pie contains minced lamb, with a mashed potato topping. Absolutely not to be confused with Cottage…
These apple cider pancakes are great for after a workout, SO tasty, and so nutritious!

Apple Cider Pancakes

I cannot believe I am saying this, but I think I am finally getting fed up of cereal. For the past five years, I have absolutely ADORED cereal. I could have eaten it for every meal, I would make happy noises while eating it, and I missed it when I could not have it for…

Fuel Intake for Endurance Exercise

It’s unofficially racing season! Road racing season that is. Everyone I interact with seems to be preparing or recovering from a race. Twitter is buzzing with nervous energy as people prepare to fight off their inner demons. One often overlooked factor for those racing the ultimate test of human spirit, AKA the marathon is how to make sure you…

Halloween Stuffed Pepper-kins

As I now consider myself a blogger, I wanted to try to keep up with all the other foodies, and start making themed foods. Most make mummy cookies, or candy corn blondies, but as much as I would love to eat those, they are not exactly matching up with my healthy eating blog. However, making…

Inflammation. It is definitely a word we are used to hearing on a daily basis. We all have little pains here or there that come from inflammation. Exercising beyond what your body is ready for will often result in inflammation. It is, after all, our bodies natural response to something being not quite right. It is…

Butternut Squash Lasagna

I love fall. It is the time of year you truly appreciate the beauty of nature; the spectrum of colors in contrast with the brilliant blue sky, as the leaves depart their trees to form a mesmerizing bundle of color on the ground. It is the time of year running is the most enjoyable; the…

The Ups and Downs of Running….and Life

On my About Me page, I talk a lot about my running journey, and what I have accomplished so far. While training for a marathon and I thought it may be interesting for people to read about what I am doing to prepare. I am considering writing a weekly post about my training, and my…

What to Eat After a Hard Workout or Race

Along with my post on What to Eat Before a Race/Workout this post helps me out A LOT. Although your regular run fueling should consist of both carbohydrates and protein, it becomes CRITICAL that you consume enough of each of those after working out hard. Just take a listen to the chat with Nancy Clark on how we…

Hearty Oatmeal and Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Last Sunday I ran my longest run ever; 20.2 miles….I add the .2 because that means I was only 6 miles short of the full marathon distance I will race next month. On the drive back from my run, all I could think about was food. As you can imagine I was STARVING, and the no…

No Bake Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

As it is less than two months until my debut marathon, I am trying my best to eat the correct, nutritious foods to supplement my training, while satisfying my sweet tooth enough so I do not overeat other foods trying to fill the void (in the past I ended up putting on weight when I gave up…

Hearty Chicken Tortilla Soup

, , ,
It is not quite cold enough for winter soups, but I wanted to bring the crockpot out of hiding, and a soup is always a safe bet. I always try to make sure my soups are hearty and filling, as there is nothing worse than a canned soup that is literally broth with some soggy…

Moroccan Chicken Couscous

As my kitchen skills improve, and more of my recipes are turning out to be a great success, my confidence to try new cushiness is growing. I spent a little time last week researching Moroccan flavorings, and came up with this Moroccan couscous. This is an extremely flavorful dish, your tastebuds are treated to a…
