Healthy Grab and Go Snacks PLUS a Giveaway!

Not until I was pregnant did I learn the real value of having healthy and portable snacks on hand at all times. Pregnancy, especially that wicked first trimester, was rife with hunger that struck suddenly and severely, and I quickly learned to never leave the house with at least one filling snack in my bag. Pregnant or not, it pays to have healthy nibbles within reach because your options are pathetically limited if you’re forced to rely on restaurants, convenience stores or the office vending machine. I’ve tried – more than once – to convince myself a McDonald’s...

Body After Baby: What’s Working For Me

Now that my daughter is 12 weeks old and I’m fully back in the swing of a fitness routine, I thought I’d share a post-baby body update. There’s good news (I’ve lost all the baby weight!) and bad news (my body ain’t what it used to be), and I don’t want to brag about or bash my body. I just want to share what’s worked for me since I’ve always loved reading about other moms’ experiences in the weeks and months after having a baby.   So here’s the latest: I’ve been back at my pre-pregnancy weight since my daughter was 8...

What I Ate Wednesday #4

Here’s one of the reasons I love WIAW: it’s such a simple way to look at both the good and bad in my diet. I’m finding that I always end up eating just a little bit better after I post my meals, and not because I’m comparing myself to other bloggers. I’m not saying the improvements I make always stick, but they’re a step in the right direction. Looking at my day of eating, I know I need to up my fruit and veggie intake, and I realize I used to eat a lot more protein before I got pregnant. That was mostly because I was lifting heavy – which I...

Pecorino and Broccoli Frittata

  This meal started out as me trying to make something halfway decent out of the few items we had on hand, and ended with me scrambling to remember exactly how I made it so I could get it down on paper; it was that good. Things like that don’t happen to me often, but when they do I can almost convince myself I have a real talent for cooking Like so many of my recipes, this one is easy to tailor to your tastes or the ingredients in your fridge; you could swap the broccoli for asparagus, try a shallot instead of an onion or use Parmesan instead of Pecorino (or, better yet,...

Meals and Goals for the Week: October 8th

How can we possibly be in the second week of October already? Here in south Florida it’s still as hot and humid as ever…how I miss fall in the northeast! Even though it’s nowhere near cold here, I’m still craving fall food – I’ve got chili already in the slow cooker for tonight!   Looking back on last week’s workouts, I hit 4 of out my 7 fitness goals: Lindsay Brin cardio/toning workout Lindsay Brin core workout ZWOW workout #36 Run – I did somewhere in the range of 2 to 2.25 miles but of course my GPS crapped out about 3 min into the run...
