Chocolate Coconut Energy Bites

Ever go through droughts in your training? The motivation is gone, your race is far away, your goals seem too big?   I’m still only a few weeks into marathon training and I’m thirsty for some drive. I have slept through my alarm 4 out of 5 times this week with no excitement to get [...]

Berry Superfood Smoothie Bowl

I’ve been a smoothie bowl girl long before the cult of artfully stripped pink bowls appeared all over social media. There are now even acai bowls on the menu at Costco. That is when you know it is mainstream. I would 10/10 choose eating my food with a spoon over a straw. Milkshakes, broths, smoothies-- [...]

Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

Her signature was the ‘you can’t close the wrap before it splits’ kinda wrap. Aka the only wrap worth eating. It burst with crisp lettuce, [...]

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I was sitting on a patio of a downtown restaurant for my best friend’s bachelorette party. This was three years ago and I’ll never forget what she ordered. Buffalo Chicken Dip. As an entree?! Is that allowed? My world of food rules was rocked. But, then I looked down at my own plate and realized [...]

Southwest Skillet

I plan for marathon training the way one may prepare for having a baby. I buy a few new outfits and some mashed food (gu). I let everyone know I’m going to be busy for the next few months and I restock my gym bag.  I do a big load of laundry and keep a [...]

Baked Banana Breakfast Bars

I always set my alarm to a weird number. 5:38 6:01 6:06 It softens the blow of the early wake-up call. Because obviously 6:01 is way better than 6:00 No matter how motivated I am in the evening to wake up and crush my workout, get quality miles in before the city is awake, I [...]
