You may of noticed I have a thing for blueberries. I put them in EVERYTHING. I probably need to experiment with some other berries but for now, blueberries it is. Blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of fruits and vegetables. And, according to this blog post, they may help you recover quicker after a hard workout. Perfection.Read More
I love love love adding extras to my coffee. It’s the second thing I drink in the morning (first thing is either room temperature water and lemon or wheatgrass juice) so why not start my day off right? Enter in: the Mocha Chaga Cold Brew. So delicious and the caffeine and chaga get you ready to take on the day. This is perfect to drink before a run or workout.Read More
I’ll be honest, this has been a hard post to write. It was such a special and, I know it sounds cheesy to say, life changing event that it’s hard to put into words the full experience.Read More
So these months have been super busy between work and training for the Speed Project, not to mention trying to be a good partner to Chris and keeping up with friends and family….time is stretched pretty, pretty thin.Read More
One of my favorite take aways from my vegan Whole30 experiment was trying out sweet potato toast. It’s definitely a breakfast game changer, Chris won’t even drink smoothies now, he just wants toast. I’ve created a toast monsteRead More
I DID IT!
I finished my vegan Whole30 experiment. There were a few hiccups (seriously it’s insane that sugar is added into SALSA) but for the most part things went really well.Read More
Week three of my vegan Whole30 is done and dusted. And to be honest, I’m getting pretty bored of it. Maybe it’s natural to hit a lull or get bored when you’ve been doing something for 21 days. I miss peanut butter. And bread. Specifically, I miss vegan grilled cheese sandwiches on these cold days. I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen with some recipes and trying out some new ones which has been fun.Read More
Week two of the Whole30 is in the books. Still feeling good. I wish I could say that I don’t miss vegan junk food but I have been craving a burger from Rip’s Malt shop. Chris and I have also been plotting about what to eat during the Super Bowl. We don’t care about football in the slightest but love the food.Read More
So I’ve finished my first week of my vegan Whole30. I’m really into it, to be honest. It’s been fun to get back into the kitchen and cooking more. I’ve actually cooked every meal this week except for two times I picked up Sweetgreen for dinner. (I was sick over the weekend and after working I just didn't feel like cooking.) That’s really big for me because Christian and I have gotten a little to reliant on Seamless.Read More
Hi! Hello! First Monday of 2019!
So I was all set to go on my long run and realized that my Garmin was dead. *FACEPALM* UGHHHH. Such a rookie mistake, amirite? Since Garmin (or at least mine) take forever to charge, I thought it would be a good time to talk about my running goals for 2019.Read More
So I’m not starting my Whole30 right on January 1st. I had a few days off after New Years and wanted to spend some time to researching and prepping. I also wanted to eat at the Ramen Hood pop up one last time before they close on the 19th. It’s so good I didn’t want to wait til the next time I’m in LA to eat there.Read More
So for 2019 I’m starting the new year off my doing the Whole30. I really like the whole idea of it, really focusing on real whole foods and cutting out a lot of processed food that has been a little too common lately in our household. (I still love you Beyond Meat!)Read More
Oh hey guys! So today I want to share something that I’ve been using for a while to help keep my digestion 100: FOOD COMBINING. Let’s backtrack a second and talk about digestion. Did you know that digesting food takes more energy than any other function for our body? Think about how tired you get after a big lunch? That’s all your energy going to digest all that (usually miscombined) food.Read More
So I wanted to share with you guys some advice with a question I get asked a lot:
How do you prevent bloating and gas on a vegan diet?
Anytime you change your diet your digestive system has to adapt. Especially if you start eating a diet rich in fiber (aka adding more fruits and veggies into your meals).Read More
I hate running in the cold. Like seriously hate it. Too bad for me, I live in the Northeast and like to run spring races. So I gotta get my buns outside. Between living in Boston and now in Brooklyn, I’ve spent a lot of winters running outdoors. And I’ll be honest, it does help with my winter blues to get outside. After awhile, 35 degrees seems warm. Kinda.Read More
I’ve been OBSESSED with beets lately. I feel like they are way underrated as far as “super foods” go. If you are a runner or workout, beets should be your new BFF. I’m currently ramping up for my next ultramarathon in December (a 50 miler in Florida) so I’ve been eating or drinking beets just about everydayRead More
The benefits of meal prepping have been extolled COUNTLESS times. You save money and you eat better who doesn’t want that?Read More
Well, it’s finally here. Pumpkin Spice everything season. You can’t hide from it, so why fight it? I love making waffles any chance I get so I couldn’t resist making some pumpkin spice protein waffles.Read More
Man oh man, October 6th is coming up soon. I signed up for the Tesla Hertz 50k a week or two ago after going back and forth between a million races. Not really a million, more like 3, but anyways…Read More
