Greek Style Cucumber Nachos
Recipes
I’m really on a nacho roll lately… I’m just going to 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. I wasn’t sure what to use as the base “chips” … I had originally thought pita chips – either homemade or packaged, but …

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.

Med-Veg Pizza
Recipes
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
Running
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
Recipes
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.  …

Veggie Stirfry with Spicy Peanut Sauce
Recipes
Stir-fry has got to be one of the fastest meals to cook… especially if you already have all the veggies prepped! I think it is also one of the most versatile… there are practically endless choices of vegetables and sauce combinations that you can use. I like a good amount of sauce… that will settle down into the rice so at the …
Workouts – Last Week Today – March 12

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, had planned on 4, but got stuck at the office late 4 out of 5 days. I don’t know what it is, but this week my runs have felt harder than usual.  I have …
