It’s that time of year again… packing kids lunches (or our own) and trying not to repeat the same old recipes. Even with the best intentions, I tend to get in a rut for L… I like sending her the things I know she’ll eat (anything nut butter related) but I also want her to [...]

Being away from home for two weeks is a long time for a toddler, especially when it involves several long car rides and flights. I knew we would have to be flexible with our schedule and eating habits, but was equally determined not to drop the ball on healthy living while we were gone.

After being cooked for and eating out the last two weeks, I found a renewed energy for cooking again, and came home with a long list of recipes I wanted to make this week.

I’m also [...]

Have you seen the food documentaries Food, Inc or King Corn? Both of these films were instrumental in raising my awareness and concern around the issues of genetically engineered food in our country.

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

One of my new running buddies has been experimenting with the 30-20-10 workout. Did you see the article about it on RW? It’s designed to be easy to remember speed work… a 30 second jog, 20 seconds at training pace, and a 10 second sprint (5 times, then recover and repeat). I read the original [...]

I got up bright and early yesterday to finish my last 6 miles for the Joggermom Virtual marathon. The “marathon” is for women (moms) of all abilities–you have all of May to complete your 26.2 miles, and there are some great prizes (winners chosen randomly- so no pressure for speed). And registration is open through [...]

Happy Wednesday! I’m linking up with Jen again at Peas and Crayons for “what I ate Wednesday.”
We all woke up early yesterday, thanks to someone working on her 2 year old molars, so we had extra time to make whole wheat blueberry pancakes. I like to top mine with almond butter and banana in [...]
