meal prep & what I pack for snacks

  My goal is to use Sundays as my food prep time for the week ahead (when my kiddo is napping).  I am going to plan ahead our dinner menu for the week and do grocery shopping once on the weekend. Here’s what I prep/cooked this past Sunday. Roasted veggies x 2 pans Cooked Eggplant […]

{recipe} cinnamon sugar roasted chick peas

This weekend I was in search for a healthy snack that I could munch on throughout the week. I knew I was going to have a busy week, and I didn’t want to be tempted to always grab the leftover holiday treats & chocolates that are still everywhere at work. I also wanted to use […]

{Recipe} Chunky Monkey Snack Bars

This past weekend, we headed to the beautiful Kern River area and set up tent at a campsite right next to the water. We went water rafting. We got thrown off our raft after we hit a rock and went down this rapid on my back. Ouch! It wouldn’t be camping without making any smores. […]

Race Weekend & Coconut and Carob Bites

I am so excited for tomorrow. It’s race day. I have been looking forward to this weekend since September. This is not just any race weekend, it’s a DISNEY race weekend. It’s double the fun. We are heading to the race expo today at Downtown Disney. We’re picking up all our official race items (i.e. […]

Wicked Fun For Everyone

Another fun weekend has past and another week has begun. I hit the gym this morning for a 30 minute HIIT workout on the treadmill. I want to incorporate more HIIT workouts again (like I did during the months leading up to the wedding). It really helped me tone up. I love doing HIIT workouts because I […]

Go Green – Vega Breakfast Challenge

Whenever I run early in the morning, I find myself getting hungry for a snack before lunch. I’ll have my normal oatmeal breakfast, have a snack bar mid morning and a late lunch. I would rather have higher calorie and nutrient dense breakfast that will keep me full until lunch. This week I switched things […]

Wedding Recap – The First Look

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments you left from the first wedding recap. There will be plenty of wedding talk in the days ahead. It was such a wonderful day and we were so happy to have shared it with those closest to us. There were many friends and relatives who were […]

Almond Pancakes

I found a place in our kitchen, a little nook where I can put all the cookbooks that I often use. One of those cookbooks is the Almond Flour cookbook. When I saw it,  I was reminded that I haven’t used almond flour in a long time. The cookbook was written by Elana Armsterdam, who […]

Peanut Butter Bars

I can’t believe that after yesterday, the year is halfway over. We are at the mid-way point of 2011. Time is sure flying. How is everyone doing with their goals for this year? I can’t believe that yesterday also marks one month from when we got married. It feels just like yesterday. We don’t have […]

Miracles take a little time

I started out my weekend by taking my usual Body Pump class. I love the instructor that teaches on Saturday morning. She has a way to really pump up the class and can motivate us without the yelling and without being in your face,  boot camp style of attitude. After the gym, I had toast […]
