Marathon training – week 9

I originally started this blog to help my family (and other families) make healthier food choices.  And that’s still what it will be but I’m also going to add a weekly post about my marathon training and how my food choices affect my training.  The January Real Food Challenge was set up to get me […]

Cilantro Lime Black Bean Dip

This recipe originally started out to be a hummus recipe that I was going to take to work for a Mexican potluck but I was out of tahini so it became a black bean dip.  Even though I do love black bean hummus, this one was great too.  And you know how I love recipes […]

Toasted Pine Nut Hummus

I’m a HUGE fan of hummus (in case you didn’t already know).  It’s just one of those very versatile food items that can be used for so many different things….for dipping, sandwich spread, top something else, etc.  I wasn’t really wanting to do another post about hummus since there are a couple of others on […]

Vegetarian Lasagna (Gluten Free)

I don’t make lasagna very often since it’s not really a quick and easy meal but I have always loved to eat it.  But, since I’ve eliminated almost all meat from my diet, I haven’t had it in quite a while.  I’ve been really curious about vegetarian lasagna but haven’t gotten around to trying it.  […]

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I seem to always have lemons around lately for some reason.  They just seem so perfect to squeeze some lemon juice over salmon or into salsa.  But after a trip to the grocery store and finding some beautiful organic blueberries, I knew I had to make some lemon blueberry muffins.  I actually baked several different […]
