March Runfessions

Happy Friday.  How did it get to be the last day of March already… it sure did fly by.  I’m ready to head into April, but first I have to come clean with my March Runfessions. I RUNFESS… I bought a new pair of running shoes.  Did I need them?  No.  When Amazon announced they were increasing donation % for Amazon Smile to 5%…

Vegan Greek Pasta

I think most of us have that friend that posts recipes on Facebook that look really good and make you hungry just by looking at them.  Recently that happened to me… a friend posted a recipe for Greek Pasta.  It looked so good, that I knew I had to veganize it! The feta cheese is easy to make and is almond based….

Modern Day Salem Witch Hunt

I recently read The Fifth Petal by Burnonia Barry. The book is set in modern day Salem, Massachusetts.  The book begins with a flashback to the night of the “Goddess Murders” in 1989, where we first find the protagonist, Callie Cahill.  Fast forward 25 years later, where a teenage boy dies suspiciously on Halloween night. One suspect is of interest in…

Greek Style Cucumber Nachos

Greek Style Cucumber Nachos – I’m really on a nacho roll lately.  Let’s just blame it on March Madness. After cooking up the Mediterranean inspired pizza last weekend, I started wondering if I could do nachos in a similar fashion.  (spoiler alert… I did) I wasn’t sure what to use as the base “chips” … originally I was thinking pita…

My Favorite Local Race – Houston Chevron Marathon

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 “Favorite Local Races”… sell your local race. For me, hands down, it is the Chevron Houston Marathon!  This race has a special place in my heart… it was my first full marathon.  It…

Med-Veg Pizza

Pizza… it was my favorite food in High School… I thought I could eat it every day without growing tired of it (note:  my parents didn’t allow that to happen). The inspiration from this recipe comes from Connoisseurus Veg.  If you haven’t checked out her blog, you should! She has some great recipes! What intrigued me about this pizza was having a…

Workouts – Last Week Today – March 19

I had a solid week of running this week.  I continued with my plank-a-day and went to yoga class.  I only ran three times this week, totally ok with that as I had a half marathon on the books for today (more about that this week). My runs felt better than they did last week.  I still slacked on the foam…

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos

It isn’t a secret that I love nachos… but generally they aren’t that good for you. A facebook friend had recently shared one of those cooking videos for sweet potato nachos, they were full of dairy and chicken… but it got me thinking about veganizing them! Since that recipe has shredded chicken, I thought that shredded jackfruit would be a good stand-in. …
