5_FALL_SOUPS_th

I am one lucky mother. Seriously. I’m not sure how it happened, but my kids love soup. Their favorite is cream of whatever. Of course, being the calorie-conscious mom, I never include the delectable ingredient; cream. The soups are creamy nonetheless, very very tasty and are the perfect vegetable delivery system for my kids. I make soup at least once … [continue]

Pumpkin Carrot Coconut Curry Soup Recipe

This delicious recipe comes from my bestie, Michelle. It’s a rich and lovely way to bring in the colder season. She says… There is nothing that speaks fall like chilly nights and the brilliant colors that come with the changing of the leaves. There’s a special smell in the air that is indicative to the coming of the season along … [continue]

Roasted Vegetable Recipes

Seems to me the prettiest foods are the simplest. And, of course, we’re all trying to eat our healthy “rainbows”, right? Lately, I’ve found that roasting up a big ol’ pan of veggies on Sundays is the perfect way to start the meal planning for the week. Since moms (and dads) know that we often cook up 2-3 meals a … [continue]

Quick Mixed Harvest Grain Recovery Lunch

I don’t “do” Trader Joe’s. I know, I’m weird. I try to be a Joe’s girl, I really do! I go, I look around, and never really get much.

Seriously, they are meant to be eaten as fuel, not candy. That … [continue]

Savory Vegetable or Flexi-Mexi Pie Recipe

When it comes to pie – I’ll take savory over sweet almost every time. I know, I’m weird. I would also gladly trade dark chocolate for cheese. I’d rather have a sandwich for breakfast than pancakes. Ok, I think you get the idea. Don’t think I’m some of kind of completely goodie-two-shoe-over-the-top-grunchy-granola-eater though. What I love most about pie is … [continue]

Salmon Frittata Recipe

This frittata is quick, easy and, hey, great for a quick holiday semi-fancy dish. Did somebody say protein? When the miles add up, so does my craving for protein. That’s not a horrible thing. After all, protein helps rebuild tissue broken down by hard training. *About 10-15% of your calories should come from protein and runners need a bit more … [continue]

For a few hours that follow a long run, it’s all about food! I’m thinking about food, eating food, dreaming up recipes,  maybe even watching a food show on TV.
