A healthy and quick breakfast! On my Friday’s off, I enjoy experimenting with new breakfast ideas. Today was no exception, but it had to be quick. Tomorrow I’m running a 5 mile race, so I needed to have time this morning to pre-cook my breakfast for tomorrow (my buckwheat pancakes). I had developed an idea sparked by tortillas I bought ...

Breaking Records and Feeling Sore! It’s been an interesting and tiring week in our household…our schedule pretty much has been: work, run, eat, sleep, repeat! The run part has finally started taking a bit more of a toll on my body, as has allergy season, which has hit me with full impact. We also were breaking records, both Mark and ...

Fake Mousse is Better than No Mousse at All… I must admit, this is not one of my tastiest or most creative recipes…but it gets the job done on cooling you down on a hot summer day! Last week we had a lot of raspberries around, as they were on sale at the grocery store and couldn’t pass up a ...

A “Good Kind of Different” for your next Oatmeal Cookie! I love oatmeal raisin cookies… When I was a kid, my grandmother always had oatmeal raisin cookies waiting for us! She was diabetic, so it was what she felt comfortable making with her dietary needs. I miss those days, she passed over 10 years ago, but I still remember those ...

Mmmmm Chocolate… This week I’m “stuck” in a training class, but have lots of friends around me. One of their birthday’s is tomorrow, and it’s a biggie! So, I emailed her from across the room inquiring what her favorite baked good was. She replied, “chocolate anything”. So, I had been wanting to try a recipe from Eggless Cooking that looked ...

A Modern Classic with a Healthy Twist Carrot Cake is my all-time favorite cake (except maybe an excellent chocolate Tres Leches). My husband makes an excellent carrot cake that comes directly from the Joy of Baking website. The most unfortunate thing is how much time and effort it takes, and how terrible it is for you (I did the calorie/macronutrient ...

Why pay $2 for a ClifBar, when you can make your own for <$1? As an athlete, I really try to get as much protein into my day as possible. I also tend to snack throughout the day to keep my metabolism up. Clif bars can get really expensive and homemade is always better, right? So, I was introduced to ...

Sometimes Mistakes Can Still Taste so Good.. I’m headed off to a two week long training class on Sunday and wanted to have a number of “healthyish” snacks to take with me not only for myself, but for others to enjoy. We are provided with breakfast and lunch and work will also provide dinner, but you know how variable hotel ...

My Results from Many Years of Trial and Error… I love guacamole and let’s face it, avocados are nature’s (healthy) butter! It’s always better homemade and it’s taken years for me to perfect my guacamole recipe and technique. I think I’ve finally found a blend the works best for my tastes and want to share it’s goodness with the (internet) ...

Homemade Applesauce, Another Race, and Another Mentor Lost… It’s been a busy week and starting off a busy weekend! I love to be busy…so there is much to say and not so much time to say it… First, I wanted to post my first experience in making homemade applesauce. It’s quick, very easy, and much healthier for you than the ...
