The Boston Marathon, also known as Marathon Monday, is one week from today! I know I should never say never, but the likelihood of me running that marathon, or any marathon for that matter, is never. However, when I lived in NYC I was fortunate enough to be a frequent visiter (whoop whoop long distance relationship) … Continue reading Badass Marathon Runners
Smoothies are the only way I can get in all of my fruits and veggies in a day, especially during Fall, Winter, and Spring, so basically 3/4ths of the year... Thankfully, frozen fruits and veggies are picked and quickly frozen at their peak so we are getting all the benefits without worrying about them being in season … Continue reading Smooooothies!

It all started with thinking it was going to be a Pho night (pho real!?) because the only thing I had in my fridge were some roasted beets (thanks to my meal prep Sunday) and a can of chickpeas.

However, if you are looking for a … Continue reading Bring it on 2018
First, I have to start with that I love to cook. I love playing with interesting ingredients, new recipes, made up recipes, and the "I only have these 4 items in my fridge what can I concoct" game. All with a glass of wine in my hand and great music on in the background. It … Continue reading Taking Back Your Weeknight
