All The Vegetables

May 22, 2014

By now I am guessing you’re starting to see a theme that focuses on vegetables and breakfast. I’m kind of obsessed with both. For whatever reason, I’m hungriest between whatever time I wake up to 10:30am. This could partially be because I wake up in the 4:40-5am range during the week, which makes 10:30 sound […]

Lemon Sunshine

May 19, 2014

After working from home for a year, I consider myself to be someone who stays on task well. It takes a certain type of motivation and focus to go to work without changing out of sweaty gym clothes. Unfortunately that focus doesn’t translate to all areas of my life. I start the process of packing […]

Raw Cacao Truffles

I feel incredibly lucky to not only have a job that I love, but that has provided me the opportunity to travel across Virginia and the country. In the past year I’ve hopped on planes and trains to Ft. Lauderdale, Memphis, Baltimore, DC, and Nashville. I’ve watched my hotel points accumulate and have considered opening […]

Remember my sweet tooth confession? Well, it’s not just bad in the morning but haunts me just about all day.

A week has passed since the Nike Women’s Half last weekend and it all still feels like a blur. This race was by far one of the best running experiences I’ve had. There is an incredible sense of camaraderie running 13 miles with nearly 15,000 other women. I went into this race telling everyone who asked […]

Banana Berry Muffins

April 29, 2014

So I ran my fourth half-marathon on Sunday. It also made for my third in 9 months. And I ran it faster than expected. I’m still exhausted and coming down from that weird post-race blues feeling. So for now, lets talk about muffins. If you’ve ever wondered how I survive teaching at 6am or being […]

Breakfast Pizza

April 23, 2014

I think I have a pizza problem. It’s called can’t stop, won’t stop. I met my breaking point with carbs this week, just couldn’t do it anymore. Granted, mission eat all the carbs turned into eat all the bread and cookies. Not the smartest decision I’ve made, but oh well. I was exhausted today which […]

Spiced Carrot Cake

April 21, 2014

Mission eat all the carbs is on a roll. I’m kind of convinced that all this sugar is making me a little crazier than usual but its only a few more days before I burn it all of. I also have to remember that eating all the carbs does not mean eating an entire loaf […]

Kale Chimichurri Tacos

April 17, 2014

Ready for a life changing revelation? Buying a house is HARD. Holy crap. So many phone calls, signatures, to-do lists, emails… add that to sleepless nights spent tossing and turning, thinking “what the heck am I doing? Is this the right thing? Can I really do this?” Let’s just say its been a long two […]
