Supreme Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers

I could eat pizza every single day- breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Seriously, cold pizza makes the best breakfast. I think Julia Child is quoted saying, “A party without cake is just a meeting.” The same could be said about pizza! Every happy occasion or accomplishment I can remember has been celebrated with a slice of [...]

Spinach Meatballs

I am in training limbo right now. My first triathlon race is still months away which means I am not quite in a build phase, yet not really a high intensity phase, either. I am definitely nowhere near the taper phase. My goals seem far off and the fire is dim. Unfortunately,this is a place [...]

Creamy Greek Yogurt Alfredo Pasta

By | 2019-01-24T12:20:47+00:00 January 17th, 2019|Nutrition, Recipes|

At one point in my life, I viewed all food creamy, cheesy, or comforting off limits. In my mind, any recipe or item on a menu that was associated with one of the big C’s (creamy, cheesy, comforting) had a little air traffic control man waving his orange flags until it was right out of [...]

Cherry Smoothie – Holiday Detox

By | 2019-01-11T20:47:43+00:00 January 10th, 2019|Nutrition, Recipes|

The word ​detox​ ignites an eye roll so big the threat of my eyes gettings stuck in the back of my head might actually happen. When holiday season of eating comes to a close, detoxing seems to be everyone’s solution to getting their body back to a normal rhythm of eating. The good news is [...]

Stuffed Dates

This one is for the cyclists. I look at you the way most look at me. “Oh, you run marathons? You’re just crazy.” You ride a bike for hours? That is just crazy. I have trust issues with my feet being permanently connected to a two-wheeled teetering object. But, I pretended to be a cyclist [...]

Quick Chicken Chili

Can we all just collectively agree that swimming in the winter time is rough. First, you have to develop the fortitude to actually enter the pool. I love to observe how other people prolong jumping into the inevitably chilly water. “Stretching” “Adjusting goggle straps” “Re-situating their equipment bag” Ok, I admit when I say, other [...]

Snickerdoodle Protein Dip

By | 2018-12-20T11:37:47+00:00 December 20th, 2018|Nutrition, Recipes|

I have officially taken out my hammer and nail because it is back to the build phase, yet again. It always astonishes me how quickly we lose fitness. Didn’t I just run 26.2 miles a few short weeks ago? I now become asthmatic walking up a flight of stairs. In my hiatus from running, I [...]

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quesadilla Recipe

By | 2018-11-23T12:31:35+00:00 November 23rd, 2018|Nutrition, Recipes|

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas just yet. But, close. It is taper time. Time to frolic through fields of freshly baked bread, slither into family-sized boxes of crackers, and roast potatoes with every meal! All while running 30 minutes a day and spending afternoons on the couch cuddled up [...]

Lean Protein: Seedy Salmon Filet

By | 2018-11-16T07:43:42+00:00 November 16th, 2018|Nutrition, Recipes|

T-12 days until race day means time to meticulously stalk the weather forecast and eat everything I should have been eating the last 4 months. It never fails, the last 2 weeks of training before a race spurs a frantic urge to cross off all the tasks on my “good athlete” to-do list. ❏ Sleep [...]
