This homemade bread recipe has finally been perfected. Elite athlete Tina Muir enjoys this every week to help fuel her training. I can't wait to make it again! SO good with nut butter!

Homemade Whole Wheat Bread

Happy Marvelous (I might change my mind on that one as I take my first step out of bed :P) Monday! Thanks so much to everyone who sent me a message yesterday. I am sure you saw that 2:45 was not what I wanted at the Chicago marathon, but it is a step in the…

Kale, Butternut Squash and Feta Salad

Happy Marvelous Monday, this weekend really was marvelous! Flew by in the blink of an eye, but I have some BIG NEWS……for those of you who do not already know…..I AM ENGAGED!! Steve proposed this weekend! Thank you so much to everyone who has congratulated us! I will do a post on Wednesday, Meatless Monday still…

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

Firstly, please bear with my website for the next few days. I am testing out some different features, meaning it will be changing quite a bit over the next few days. Hopefully it will be back in full working order by the end of the week. To anyone intending to move their blog from Blogger to…

Peach Crumble Steel Cut Oatmeal

Happy Meatless Monday! I would like to welcome Deborah from Confessions of a Mother Runner to Meatless Monday as we will now be joining forces to co-host Meatless Monday (complete with thumbnails) to spread the movement, and help share the best meatless recipes around. We will still be celebrating Marvelous Mondays, as optimism and gratitude…

Super Super Sweet Potatoes

Happy Marvelous Monday! I had a weekend full of organizing and purging my belongings. The Type A part of me loved it , but the “normal” part of me wanted to just throw everything into a dumpster……thankfully I am an “eco nut”, and would never actually do that! For my birthday week, I indulged….again. I…

Summer Tofu Salad with Almond Butter Dressing

Happy Marvelous Meatless Monday! Other than a fair bit of traveling, I had a great weekend, with lots of good eats….another reason I need to participate in these meatless, healthy meals! When I eat out, I get whatever the heck I want, good for the soul, but not for training! Buuuutt, I like to think…

Fish with Peach-Mango Salsa

,
Article after article, case after case, day after day, we are told that people living in the Western World (particular those of us living in America) need to work on our diets: eat more vegetables, less saturated fat, more whole grains. I could easily go on, and then there are the other articles that show…

Strawberry Shortcake Oatmeal Pancakes

Good Morning! Happy Marvelous Monday! How was your weekend? I finally found some time to relax, and I even took a nap on Saturday! It truly was marvelous, and well needed! Sometimes I am such a hypocrite. I often tell my loved ones how much it frustrates me when people are stuck in their ways;…

Pulled Pork and Roasted Sweet Potato Pizza

, ,
Last week I was in heaven Bed Bath and Beyond, daydreaming about all the kitchen supplies I will someday be able to put on my registry, while shopping for a friends wedding present.  It brings butterflies to my stomach, thinking about the day I can go around and click whatever I want…..yes, I have heard…

Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes

Well, that’s another holiday gone for the year. Has anyone else noticed how fast this year is going? We are fast approaching May, and as excited as I am to finish my MBA next month, it is also starting to terrify me thinking about trying to find a job within the healthy eating/nutrition industry. If…

Black Bean Fudgy Cookies

,
As I am sure you know by now, I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, however, sweets (in the quantity I consume them anyway) are not great for maximizing performance. I am therefore constantly on the lookout for ways I can trick my sweet tooth into eating nutritious foods. As much as I love fruit, my…

Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos

Last week, as Spring finally appeared to be here to stay, I decided I would make a dish that’s vibrancy (I think that is a word?!) would sum up the feelings of relief amongst most of us for the recognition that we survived the winter. I came up with this wonderfully bright meatless way of…

Salmon, Spinach, and Broccoli Risotto

, ,
Okay, I am going to share a secret with you. One of my favorite meals of all time. Actually, I am surprised I have not posted this before, but it is my go to dish when I want to make something I know will be good. We all know (well, foodies know), that risotto is…

Sweet Potato Stir Fry

,
When my mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I think she thought I was joking when the first thing I said was a julienne peeler *what has my daughter become?!*. It was one of my favorite presents…..until I came across Ali’s blog, and discovered the wondrous spiralizer!!! My julienne peeler seemed so weak…

Pear and Hazelnut Cinnamon Oatmeal

,
One thing being gluten free has done for me more than anything else, is expanded my breakfast horizons. I have tried many different breakfast options, rather than just having cereal every day……although it has made me miss it even more! I have made the Oh She Glows Peanut Butter Morning Oatmeal mutiple times, and I…

Cauliflower Crust Veggie Pizza

, ,
I am learning more and more that I am a bit of a sheep. I always thought I was independent; someone who doesn’t gave to peer pressure, does what she wants, but I keep hearing about how gluten free is the biggest “fad” of the moment. As today marks the end of my gluten free…

Slow Cooker Chilli

,
Depending on where you are in the country, you may be like us Philadelphians, under a deep (13 inches!) of snow with temperatures hovering around 2F (-15F with winchill!!!). On days like this, the perfect food to warm you up is a Chilli to bring some heat back into your body, and get that metabolism…

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…
These turkey and sweet potato pita pockets are the perfect healthy dinner filled with lots of superfoods. I need more of these healthy meals!

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…
