Healthy Chocolate "Ice Cream"

Last week, I decided to challenge myself for the week and skip the chocolate chips at the grocery store. I’m happy to say I haven’t missed them too much.

It did lead to some other dessert experimenting, but some healthier alternatives.

Chocolate “ice cream”

and (non-chocolate) sweet potato date bars, inspired by […]

A special interview and Summer Ratatouille

Yesterday was busy- it started with a 6:30 am spin class I was subbing, which is about the time I usually workout, but required a much earlier wake up. As much as I grumbled when my alarm went off, I loved getting that burst of energy first thing in the morning.

While L had her […]

Biking, Baking and Black Bean salad

It’s time for another round of What I ate Wednesday! This month, we’re tying in fitness, something I usually do anyway, so I’m excited. Let’s get started!

Biking: This month holds a new fitness challenge for me… my first triathlon! Eleven days to go. I feel so lucky that my local blogging […]

Three healthy, homemade popsicles

We’re only a few days into summer officially, but Texas hit summer temperatures months ago. One of our favorite ways to keep cool is with homemade popsicles, and we’ve been experimenting with some of our favorite flavors.

These are a much healthier alternative to store-bought varieties (you can even sneak spinach into the blueberry one!), […]

Two peanut sauces and wiaw

Did you know it’s National Running day today? Get out for a run if you can!


I’m over one week in, and the running streak is going well. It’s pushing my 30 mile weeks to 33, which is a reasonable 10% increase, and my legs have been handling it so far. I also mentioned […]

Wiaw race fuel + Carrot-beet salad

Happy Wednesday again! I love how quickly Wednesday comes after a three-day weekend! I’m linking up again with Jenn at Peas and Crayons…

This week, I thought I’d share race day eats, so here’s what Saturday looked like before and after the miserable 10k plus a few from our blueberry picking outing:

[Pre-race: […]

Tomato poached eggs

I’m still feeling good after Sunday’s race, and have been able to ease back into my normal routine with a recovery spin on Monday and a easy run yesterday in place of speed work.

I would love some training feedback: I’m debating how to handle this Saturday’s long run, as the following Saturday is a […]

Valentine’s day WIAW

Hope you all had a nice Valentine’s day! I enjoyed a lot of “why I love running” posts I saw floating around. I’m linking up again with Jen at WIAW:

We’ve never made a big deal out of Valentine’s day, but it is a little more fun with a toddler in the picture. So we […]

L's lunch rotation and WIAW

Back to “school” this week! I thought we had years before worrying about school lunches, but L started a Mothers Day Out program this fall (two mornings a week), and eats lunch there with the other toddlers.

We are supposed to pack foods that they can feed themselves– no soup, yogurt, or other potential mess-making […]
