CSA Week 4

June 17, 2014

It has been hot as heck here in Virginia. We had a truly welcome break from 150% humidity over the weekend, but now its back to the summer trifecta: hazy, hot and humid. I’d like to believe that I’d be less disgruntled by the tropics outside if I didn’t have to focus on running as […]

Feeling Fancy

June 11, 2014

I firmly believe that there is no such thing as too many green vegetables. However, there are the rare weeks when leafy greens are overtaking my fridge and need to be used at a faster rate than a salad a day. I made this vegetable tart last year but changed the crust and used all […]

At Home

June 7, 2014

I closed and moved into my very first home almost two weeks ago and it still all feels a bit surreal. I keep saying that this all happened so quickly, which is the absolute truth. I’m settled in and am truly grateful for this space. It’s amazing how different it feels walking into a house […]

Green Eggs

May 25, 2014

This is last thing that I really cooked in my rented house. I’m kind of freaking out over that statement and that in approximately 48 hours I will be a homeowner. This is a true back to basics moment. I have nothing in my pantry and only the staples in my fridge. For whatever reason […]

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

May 13, 2014

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 […]

Life Hack Cookie Dough Ice Cream

May 8, 2014

Remember my sweet tooth confession? Well, it’s not just bad in the morning but haunts me just about all day. It is getting to the level of being an issue again, but I blame that on the last month of training and basically eating anything I wanted because I was pretty much always calorie deficient. […]

Drinking Vegetables

May 6, 2014

It seems as though my sole mission in life is to find a way to consume as many vegetables throughout the day. I do try to get at least one vegetable in at every meal, but breakfast is my biggest challenge. I fully admit to having a sweet tooth and it rages in the morning. […]
