Pickled kumquat, feta and mint salad

Hi! How’s the day going? What’s today’s workout plan? This is a shocker, but I actually woke up early and made it to yoga! It felt amazing to start the day with some movement, heat (loooove the heat) and a stretch, especially after yesterday’s Bodypump/spin combo. (Last night’s ridiculous sunset!) At our gym, we have…

Like lightning in a jar

Hi! Happy Monday! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning and enjoyed a relaxing weekend. Mine included a traveling day to get home to my favorite people. We even had packed snacks (energy balls -recipe is below!- salad, and trail mix) to enjoy at the airport; far more delicious than most airport food I’ve seen. (salad…

Almost like the real thing

To accidentally celebrate our Italy trip anniversary, we spent the afternoon in a spot we’re determined to visit more often. (Our travel agent commented on our Instagram that it was one year ago that we went to Rome and Positano. Some Italy tips are here, too! I’ve thought about it every day since; I’m itching…

Plan and Prep: Salad in a Jar

I think we’re doing pretty well at checking things off the summer bucket list. Prepping healthy meals in advance makes it easy to keep healthy habits even while enjoying all the summer fun. Today I’ve got an easy way to prep salads for the week: salad in a jar. I’ll show you just how to…

Clean Eating Tuna Salad

This recipe is inspired by the tasting tiki hut at Trader Joe’s. I’m thankful that they manage to give me a quick little snack when the munchies hit, and they also tend remind me of things I love that have somehow fallen off the radar. Case in point: tuna salad. We were getting our weekly…

Back at it + a new Zumba playlist

Afternoon pho. The best kind 😉 Pho hack: I saved some of the broth from takeout -they always give us extra- and added cooked chicken, more cilantro, sriracha, and boiled TJ’s rice noodles. Speaking of the chicken, it’s probably the best chicken I’ve ever made. This is the recipe. It’s super easy, makes the house…

Homemade enchilada sauce

Enchiladas are the beautiful type of meal that is hard to mess up. This is why they’re a gem for cooking newbies; just wrap something in a tortilla, cover it with sauce and cheese, and bake it. It will be delicious. It’s kind of like a stir fry: you add whatever you want, and somehow,…

What’s in the way of your goals?

Hi friends! How’s your day going? It’s been a great one over here. I started off the day with a GPP workout in the garage. It looks easy when you first glance at it, until you realize that you have to do 15 burpees in between every strength set. And then you do that all…

Sweet potato chicken salad

For having a husband who flies planes for a living, I don’t really love flying. I see it as a necessary evil, and while I don’t have full-blown panic attacks or anything like that, it’s not my favorite thing. With every sound I’m convinced that something will happen, and each flight usually involves at least…

PRO Meals: Salmon Cakes

Happy Monday! Anything exciting happening this week? I’m not sure what we’re up to today, but the weather’s been gorgeous so I’ll probably see if some friends want to meet up at the splash pad or zoo. I do know that we’re having these salmon cakes for lunch, though. Recipe to follow! Around the House I’m kind of…

Around T-town

Hi friends 🙂 Hope you’re having a great morning! I’m still on my motivated high from the IDEA conference and even though it looked doubtful, I made this week’s longer run happen. My friend Monica set up a training plan for me, and when I saw 5 miles on the agenda for Sunday, I knew…

Paleo BLTs

or “BLATs”, rather 🙂 Certain foods always remind me of my childhood. Just to name a small few: fresh, homemade tortillas -they’d still be warm from the stove and would literally melt in your mouth Nana’s frijoles (THE BEST) tomato soup in a coffee mug -still one of my favorites, especially when I’m fighting the…
