Pittsfield Recipe Bonanza!

Pittsfield Recipe Bonanza!As many of you know, I recently spent a few days in Pittsfield, VT assisting with the 100 mile, marathon, half marathon, and 10K snow shoe races and Winter Death Race put on by Peak Races.

Bahama Mama Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

The best thing about blogging about food is when my awesome family and friends send me their favorite clean recipes to try!   This one caught my eye immediately and I had to share! Inspired by the islands and in anticipation for an upcoming vacation to Florida, I can’t wait to try this one out!  First of all,  I love…

Oatmeal on the Go!

Never Late, Without a Plate Oatmeal Cookies With all the cooking I do, I feel like my arms are constantly submerged in a sink full of bubbles or emptying my dishwasher. In the mornings, trying to get two girls out the door, I often find myself eating breakfast on the go and one of my…

Ah…. nothing is better on a cold winter afternoon than a hot bowl of steaming, hearty chili!  This would go great with my homemade cinnamon roll recipe.  This past weekend, with my running partner and friend Casey serving as inspiration, I threw together a spicy chicken chili.  First, I have to explain why Casey get’s…

Recipe? What Recipe?

http://www.foodhism.com/ I love posting my recipes.  And let me issue a disclaimer: My recipes are not things you will find in a Betty Crocker Cook Book. I didn’t go to culinary school and I rarely use measuring cups. At the grocery store I have a list for basics, but outside of that it’s basically a free…

Cooking Clean Challenge

Last week, while hearing Jim lament some of his nutrition challenges and comment on his ambitious marathon goals for May I decided that I would issue him (and myself) the ultimate challenge.  Make the average guy undergo a nutrition make-over to get more clean, lean, and mean before May 1st.  My approach to clean eating…

Substitution Please!

Eating clean doesn’t mean you have to miss out some favorite foods and drinks – especially during the holiday season.  For things like mashed potatoes, pasta, and even cocktails, there are healthy options to keep you on track without sacrificing some of your favorite dishes! I rarely make true mashed potatoes anymore.  I opt for…
