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 [...]

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

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

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 [...]

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

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

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

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 [...]
