Cinnamon Baked Apples

We got a bunch of apples in our co-op basket this week.  I do love apples but I wasn’t quite sure what to do with all of them.  I took some for snacks at work and “encouraged” my family to eat them.  But we still had a bunch.  I’m not big on applesauce so that […]

Coconut Energy Bars

Since making a couple of raw desserts using dates, I started looking for other ways to use them.  I love the idea of just throwing a few ingredients into my Ninja and having a delicious, healthy dessert or snack in like 5 minutes.  Not using the oven saves so much energy….my energy – you know, […]

Marathon Training – Week 4: Hallelujah and OMG!

I mentioned in last week’s recap that I was really looking forward to this week since it was a cutback week.  The reduced mileage was nice but kind of has an odd mental impact.  Rationally, I realize and understand that my body needs time to rest and recover.  But that seems counter-intuitive in other ways.  Shouldn’t […]

Marathon Training – Week 2: Off Season is Over

I’m finally getting over this cold and feeling pretty normal again.  Man, what an energy drain that was.  But I survived week 1 of training and was looking forward to week 2.  This week was a mileage increase week according to the schedule.  I increased my overall mileage from 40 to 46.  I know that […]
