Make your own takeout

Hi friends! How’s your day going?

Huge congratulations to my friends who ran the Boston Marathon this morning! Did you, or anyone you know, run today?? I’m so so excited for Sarah, Tina, Janae and Kristin; you are amazing. <3

it’s been an interesting afternoon over here. The Pilot is home sick with food poisoning -I hate that he feels so terrible- and my eyes are bothering me, so I’m in glasses while tears run down my face. Let’s see how spin class goes haha.

At least breakfast was a win,

Pancakes  1 of 1 11

(oat banana blender pancakes!)

BODYPUMP was a beast -a fun beast, but I’m always so sore after a new release!- and Liv and I had a great morning together at her gymnastics class, hitting up Better Buzz and making Play Doh sculptures outside. 

Dinner was pretty glorious last night, too. 😉 

I’ve been really hankering for Chinese food lately, so I added cashew chicken to this week’s meal plan. It’s so easy to make, often using ingredients we already have on-hand, and a healthier version of takeout. While getting takeout is always fun, it is nice to have a say in the ingredients and sodium content of your food. Here’s the quick recipe if you want to give it a try! We also had some not-fried quinoa, which Liv surprisingly LOVED. Note to make it more often!

Nana’s famous egg dish

Creme brûlée French toast and Easter adventures. It was a great Easter this year. <3 I remember last year, when we had just moved here and had yet to meet anyone. We had a blast with friends (and were so thankful to them for taking us under their wings), but at the same time, we […]

20 healthy, on-the-go breakfasts

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Your comments this morning were cracking me up. SO many good ones! I’m also glad I’m not alone with totally mishearing song lyrics. “Starbucks lovers” was a debate between the Pilot and myself before we finally googled it. I was just excited because we met at Starbucks. 😉 The […]

Bring on the madness

March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.   (This is […]

Luscious grain-free lemon cake

Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is […]

Blender banana-oat pancakes

Hiiiii! How’s it going? So happy you enjoyed the capsule wardrobe post. So ready to spriiiiiiiing. Happy humpday! Flashback to the Valdosta days and every Wednesday was Indian Food Wednesday. I think some channa masala is happening tonight. Speaking of Valdosta, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? I not-so-secretly wish this show would have happened about 5 […]

January 2015 Cardio Playlist (+ Musical Cardio workout)

Hi! How’s the day going so far? I taught a fun BODYPUMP class and took Liv to her gymnastics class, which is basically the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. The Pilot and I are into our little detox, and while the day has been relatively normal for me, it’s also my “chocolate […]

Staying on the wagon + some awesome dinners

crab-cakes.JPG

Hi! How’s it going? It’s rainy and gloomy and fantastic. We had a morning playdate with Whitney and Wyn, and during naptime, I’m packing up Kale Yeah shirts and getting ready for Zumba. During spin on Monday, I gave my class major kudos for showing up. It can be hard to get back into the […]

Overnight autumn steel cut oats

oats (1 of 1)-2.jpg

Another thing on the “fall is awesome” list: the slow cooker. This is one of my most beloved kitchen appliances, and something I’ve used frequently since receiving it as a wedding gift, years ago. The slow cooker makes amazing soups, curries, and chills, but some of my favorite uses are more unconventional: cooking butternut squash […]

Pumpkin chocolate chip baked breakfast cookies

A gluten-free and satisfying sweet breakfast treat! Make ahead to freeze and enjoy throughout the week.

Hi! How about a cookie? Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve found myself back on the oats wagon. It might just be the season, but I’ve found myself enjoying oats more frequently in fave recipes like these beloved pancakes, breakfast cookie dough cereal, baked oatmeal and breakfast cookies. We’re going through some kind of […]

Protein-packed make-ahead breakfast burritos

burritos-1-of-1-6.jpg

(gluten and dairy-free, too!) After burning ourselves out on baked oatmeal (so good, but we had so much!), we’re on to a new breakfast thing. “New” = not really new at all, because usually at some point during the day I will have an egg burrito. It may be breakfast, it may be lunch, but […]

Vegan peach baked oatmeal

[Heads up: this post is sponsored as part of my partnership with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze. Read on for a delicious and vegan baked oatmeal recipe!] I’m always on the lookout for breakfasts that can be made in advance. Since the mornings can be a little crazy around here, I love being able to quickly […]
