Pork Chili Verde (in the Slow Cooker)

Pork Chili Verde is one of my favorite weeknight dinners, period. When I discovered it, it was such a refreshing change from chili or pot roast in the slow cooker and really opened my eyes to what I can do with my crock pot. And I don't know about you, but as a working mom,... Continue Reading →


Post-Workout Protein Frosty

When I say this is my go to post-workout snack, I mean it. I make this A LOT! It feels like I'm eating the most decadent and indulgent treat, but the best part is, that isn't even close to true! I have this protein frosty on two different occasions: 1. After a really great run... Continue Reading →

Healthy Italian Meatballs and Spaghetti (Gluten Free)

The cloudy and cool weather this week has me craving all sorts of comfort food which is odd for this time of year. Summer is usually all about salads and tacos and the grill, but all I could think about today was spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs are one of the many meals that I always... Continue Reading →

Chewy Chocolate Tahini Cookies (Gluten Free)

When most people think of tahini, they think of hummus, and that's pretty much it. I have to admit, I used to think the same thing. I've learned, though, that tahini is a much more versatile ingredient than I ever thought. It's great for baking, especially for those who have nut allergies or when you... Continue Reading →

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprout and Tomato Flatbread with Chicken

Grilled flatbreads are so perfect for summer, especially when you're getting sick of burgers (this is actually not possible for me)  and hot dogs (this is very possible for me)! The same old summer foods can get really dull, but the fun thing about flatbreads is that there are so many different varieties, and you... Continue Reading →

Mediterranean Buddha Bowl

A Buddha Bowl is really just a hipster term for a giant bowl of healthy and hearty veggies and protein. This afternoon I have a lot of vegetables in my fridge that need to be put to use, and I'm also craving feta cheese and hummus, so Mediterranean Buddha Bowl it is! I'll start by...

Simple Homemade Hummus

Hummus is one of my all time favorite snack foods, and it is one of those things that is really and truly better homemade. Kind of like cookies. You know how you can taste the difference between a processed cookie out of a bag and a freshly baked homemade cookie? I taste the same difference... Continue Reading →

18 Week Marathon Training Plan for Working Moms (Yes, you can train for a marathon!!!)

After finishing my 5th full marathon this past May, just one week before my son turned one, I had a lot of people ask me how I found time to train for a marathon while working full time and having an infant. I'm here to tell all of you working moms out there that it... Continue Reading →

Chickpea Curry (Ready in 15 minutes!)

Let's be honest, meal prepping is the only way that a lot of us are able to get through the week alive. I don't know what I would do if I didn't come home to my freezer full of already cooked dinners on the weeknights, and there's no way I could pack my lunch every... Continue Reading →
