Vegan Tex-Mex Loaded Baked Potato

I love a baked potato… seriously, who doesn’t. When you combine it with healthy ingredients, it makes it a meal upon itself. I am a fan of spicy food, so this baked potato has a little spice to it from the pico de gallo. I’ve also added black beans for a little protein. I recently learned that you can make…

Workouts – Last Week Today – June 26

This week I got back in my routine of running (for the most part).  My mileage is low, and I’m ok with that. The heat is in full swing in Houston and I’m trying to get myself acclimated to it again. I am continuing to wear my Jawbone Up24 in the hopes that it motivates me to get 10k steps…

Spicy Coleslaw

Spicy coleslaw is one of my most requested recipes for summer cookouts. This recipe is an attempt at recreating the spicy coleslaw a friend from Kansas used to bring to our driveway parties. When we moved, I asked him for the recipe… but it was one of those that was never written down and changed every time he made it.    …

Awesome Pasta Salad

Summer time is upon us, and to me it means a lot of outdoor entertaining and barbeques. I tend to always make a pasta salad as a side dish during the summer. This pasta salad I created for my sister after she had given birth to her twin girls.  She loved this salad and I knew I was on to…

Workouts – Last Week Today – June 12

This week’s mileage was dismal. I feel like I am in a slump… and I don’t really like it! I dug out my Jawbone and got it charged up so at least I could make sure that I was getting in at least 10k steps. Sunday – Last day at deer camp with the hubs. We did a little hiking….
