Nut Thins & Nuttzo! 5 Favorite Protein-Carb Combos on the Go!

I really like to eat. So much so, I can be rather hurried and sloppy about it. As evidenced by today’s dress fiasco at the office: Now you know why I prefer to wear black. It shows less stains! Fortunately, I have a Tide to Go pen on hand at all times AND the food […]

Gourmet Dinner by Walmart, Workouts by MacGyver

This gourmet salad was created at Walmart: No, really. It came from the land of the bargain socks and “buy 1 get 9” whatever’s. Starting with all this: I tossed it together in the kitchenette of my Homewood Suites hotel room Friday night in Lafayette, Louisiana – practicing what I preach to students and clients about […]

Food Prep Diaries and 10,000 meters

Oh my goodness. Sleeping for more than 12 hours Sunday felt glorious after the horrible airport sleepover in Dallas! It also told me my body really needed those extra hours. Sir Burpee slept just as long, meaning his sleepover at Perky Petz was just as much of a whirlwind – though far more fun than […]

A Different Starting Line

Whenever I run, I am always so excited for the finish line – whether it’s an official one…  …or just the one that lands me back home after a solo morning run like the 5 miles I took today. Maybe that’s why my race times are pretty decent – the horn goes off at the […]

The following post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Bottoms up! It’s Friday, people! For the past week I have been enjoying the best smoothie right after teaching early morning classes!

Snack attack! Hop on the Cinnamon Train!

The following post is sponsored by Blue Diamond. Well hello strangers! Friday Confession: I had a big, fat heavily frosted gluten free cinnamon roll from Kyra’s Bake Shop last night for dinner.  Yep, the blog AND my meals in some cases had to take a backseat the past week or so because of the following happenings: 1. Sir […]

Need muscle recovery? Make these Chocolate Mint Muscle Cookies!

  I really like cookies. Yes, as much as I stick to a mostly Paleo and grain-free, low sugar eating plan, I can go to town on a really good cookie. This was the scene in our conference room at Moore Communications Group this week: Wow. So. Many. Cookies. We did a cookie exchange party […]

Sun up to sun down: A day in the life…and another giveaway!

I don’t lead what I’d consider a riveting life, but students and readers often ask me what a typical day looks like – what and when do I eat, what and when is my exercise routine, do I watch TV or have time to read, etc. So, here is what my Monday looked like. A […]

Cavegirl Bakes: Quest Pumpkin S’mores Bars…and a BIG Quest Giveaway

I have a new favorite Quest bar flavor. S’Mores. People, it’s amazing. Just enough chocolate, chunks of graham cracker, marshmallow goodness to satisfy a sweet craving with ZERO guilt. It’s so good. Just 180 calories packed with protein. #boom. The Quest team sent me a box last week and it’s been a S’mores party every […]

Make This Now: Ginger Dragon Chicken Stir Fry

It’s always a good day when Frieda’s Produce sends a box of goodies. Sometimes it’s eats I’m familiar with, like those delicious Stokes purple sweet potatoes. But often I get new fruits and veggies that push me outside my comfort zone, in a good way. This most recent package contained fresh ginger and Green Dragon […]
