Soba Noodles with Kimchi & Edamame
Recipes
This is an easy and quick dish, perfect for a weeknight. Kimchi is a fermented food which some studies have shown it to have beneficial bacteria to promote a healthy gut. I like to use spicy kimchi, and I like this to be warmed as well.  I have read that warming it takes away some of the goodness of the fermentation of …
February Runfessions
Running
I’m linking up with the lovely ladies today for Friday Five 2.0 and the fabulous Marcia for Runfessions.  February sure did fly by, but not without some things to come clean on!

Workouts – Last Week Today – February 19
Running
I’m still just running as I feel like it, 4 days a week with one long run.  My weeknight runs have been on the short side at 3 miles so that I don’t have to leave work early to get it in before it gets dark.  I’m looking forward to the time change so I can increase my distance.  I have been adding a progression run …
Lentil Sloppy Joes
Recipes
I went a little “school lunch” retro today – Sloppy Joes! The hubs is a huge fan of sloppy joes, he could eat them every week. Of course his are made with either ground buffalo or beef, but it got me thinking… could I make sloppy joes for myself that were plant based. I had some lentils left over from when I …
Galveston Half Marathon Recap
Race Recap
I ran the Galveston Half Marathon in Galveston on February 12. I took it easy on race day eve … sleeping in and relaxing with tea and a book in the morning, followed by some housework and watching my beloved KU Jayhawks barely beat Texas Tech. My pre-race dinner consisted of a pasta bake, garlic bread, and a glass of wine. I prepped my things …
Vegan Cauliflower Nachos
Recipes
I love nachos… but I could seriously do without eating the tortilla chips. I recently came across Greenback Gal’s Healthy Cauliflower Nachos and I knew this was something that I had to try. I switched up her recipe a bit, adding a lentil-walnut taco meat and vegan cheese sauce and vegan sour cream. The cauliflower, roasted in taco seasoning is …
Workouts – Last Week Today – February 12
Running
After my long run on Sunday, I took it light this week.  I was up in the air about running on Saturday… but sleeping in and being lazy enjoying a couple cups of tea and reading won out. Today I ran the Galveston Half Marathon… I’ll recap it later this week – spoiler alert: I beat my time goal and …
Goals For The Galveston Half Marathon

This weekend I will be running in the Galveston Half Marathon race in Galveston, TX.  This is my first race since I ran the Houston Marathon.  I’m excited to head back to Galveston and run along the seawall!  Like usual, I have made a few goals for this race.   Start out slow… run a reverse split race. Be confident, trust in …
Winter Scenes From My Runs
Tuesdays on the Run
Today I’m joining the lovely ladies for Tuesdays On The Run.  Where we talk about a different topic each week that is running related. Today’s topic is “Winter Scenes From My Run”.  Winter in H-town isn’t much different than the other seasons.  There is less green. No ice… no snow… not a lot of dead looking trees. Sometimes there is grey, dreary …
