Grain-Free Peppermint Brownies

Last night, we braved the cold (ok, Tucson cold, but still) to head up to Mt. Lemmon for our family photos. The chill was just the perfect weather to enjoy the peppermint brownies I have for you today. Perfect for a wintery dessert after being out in the cold! I think our photographer Jacquelynn got some…

Clean eating sweet potato casserole

Here’s the sweet potato casserole you need at your Thanksgiving table.  Livi and I were planning on going to squadron Thanksgiving on Friday afternoon. She ended up being awake all night Thursday night -teething is the worst- so after playing with friends Friday morning, we came home for naptime. Since she didn’t sleep well the night…

Fiesta Egg Casserole

This Mexican egg casserole recipe can also be known as “you really can put anything in an egg dish.” It was a nice and lazy weekend over here. After Saturday’s day of running + teaching, I treated myself to a massage – one of the major perks of working at a resort – and came home…

Grain-Free Vegan Thumbprint Cookies

For yesterday’s dinner, I had an awesome picnic in mind, but the rain had another idea. So hot bar inside it was.  Noodle has the hot bar routine down pat. We walk around and pick our eats, grab a drink (either water or a fresh juice) and then she looks up at me and says,…

Quick No-bake Grain-free Cookie Dough

It always blows my mind when people say they don’t like chocolate. It’s ok, we can still be friends. More for me, right? I live for chocolate. Livi is quickly learning the ways, too. My nana bought me a cupcake magnet years ago and when you press the cupcake it says, “I loooooooooove chocolate.” Guess…

3-Minute Skinny Peppermint Mocha

Starbucks! They know me! Source I tend to stay away for the most part during the warmer months.. (which, let’s be real, is 97% of the time in Tucson.) I can make my own coffee at home, and save for the occasional iced green tea lemonade, it’s rare that I’ll hit up the SB drive…

DIY Felt Christmas Tree

“One hot glue gun does not a crafty Gina make.”  I would be lying if I said that crafts didn’t intimidate me. Whenever I get the urge to DIY, the Pinterest feed instantly streams into my brain. Before you know it, I’m doubting and wah-wah-ing myself, when I remember that “if you run, you’re a…

Holiday HIIT Workout

With all of the holiday gatherings, traveling and extra to-dos right around the corner, time to workout can be a little more scarce than usual. One of the things to remember is to focus on the quality of your training, not the length. That’s why I created this holiday HIIT workout for you. It’s short,…

Even with all of the Thanksgiving recipe round up posts I’ve read recently, I’m not tired of them yet. It’s always fun to get new ideas for holiday dishes and parties. There’s so much variety out there, and I think it’s fortunate to have so many diverse eating styles, cooking methods and techniques available on…

Meg: Holiday Yarn Wreaths

To say I’m excited for the holiday season is an extreme understatement. October is always a fun month filled with various birthdays, horror films, and Halloween festivities, but the moment November arrives, the world just seems a little brighter to me. Yes, I burn my Bath & Bodyworks Twisted Peppermint candle and squeal with joy when…

Gingerbread Protein Pancakes

I’m always scary exited when gingerbread makes its seasonal arrival.  Source When it shows up at Starbucks, I feel like the holidays are officially here and will usually get a soy latte with a couple pumps of gingerbread. [That’s actually a hot cocoa, but you get the idea] So this morning, I decided to gingerbreadify…

Healthy Egg Salad

The Pilot and I have always had pretty clear ideas of who does what in our little household. We each have our own *jobs*, from the normal everyday stuff (I cook, he does dishes, he vaccuums, I Swiffer and clean everything else, he takes out the trash and recycling), to the more unusual stuff. Like…
