Food Journaling- The Details


Fair warning: This might be an annoying detailed post. On Wednesdays I normally show you a round up of what I've been eating, but today I'm going to get a little more detailed. Why? Because yesterday was my first official day of food journaling. As … [Continue reading]

A New Challenge + Fall Shortcuts


I love challenges. I've been working on my half marathon training, and it's been fun literally running towards a goal. I knocked out 7 miles over the weekend, which is the farthest I've ever gone! My Brooks shoes seem to be working out really well, … [Continue reading]

Kale Addict


Oh my gosh you guys. I have some exciting news. And by news I mean recipe. And by exciting I mean easy. Ok so I'm mostly just proud that I'm eating kale with something other than that tahini dressing. (Yes, I've eaten that pretty much every day, … [Continue reading]

Trading “Healthy” Foods


The other day, I was thinking about how I ate in college, and how different it is from what I eat now. I was very "healthy" in college... meaning I lived off of 100 calorie pack snacks, and low fat Pasta-Roni. From a calorie counting perspective, I … [Continue reading]

New Kicks


I'm happy to report that I'm taking this running thing pretty seriously. No, I'm not going to bed early, I'm not waking up early for training runs, I'm not skipping out on parties in order to rest up. But Friday, I bought a pair of running shoes, … [Continue reading]

[Healthy] Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream


This might be one of my favorite new creations. I wish I'd thought of this at the beginning of summer. (Maybe then I wouldn't have been called out by Foursquare for going to Sweet Frog 3 times in one week.) Oops. I had some cream cheese left in my … [Continue reading]

Cost Saving Tricks


One of the benefits of being a vegetarian, is that grocery bills have the potential to be a lot lower, because meat isn't cheap. And that's true, sometimes. But I also buy a lot of really... "special" things. (Bee pollen is expensive.) So here are … [Continue reading]
