“You look really good in that race photo” (said no one…….EVER) and Eating Clean

Yesterday was the Thursday morning before Saturday’s Kona Ironman and the infamous “Underpants” Run took place.   I joke that some of the amateur athletes diet and “train” more for this 1.2 mile Strut Your Stuff  run down Ali’i Drive than they do for the actual race–extra ab workouts, low […]

Cleaning up the Eating-Plant Based Style

The power of food is tremendous. It’s pretty amazing that what you eat has a direct effect on your productivity, mood, sleep, health, etc.  When I’m eating well, I clear my inbox; my workouts go splendidly; I have a ton of mental clarity; some not-so-great life situations and annoyances […]

Fun Foodie Finds August 17th-23rd

Shiitake Mushroom Jerky from Far West Fungi My love affair for All Things Shiitake continues. Two weeks ago, Farm Fresh To You featured this Jerky as an additional add-on. Since then, this toothsome, salty/slightly sweet hasn’t been available through them, but I’m sure that you can order some directly […]

Figs Figs Figs Late summer in SoCal means the beginning of delicious fig season. While some of my friends are gutting it out on long Ironman training rides in the 107 degree heat, I’m instead riding short coastal and having time to clean my office. And the garage. And […]

Weekly Round Up–Foodsense, Now Favorites

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the 2nd week of summer. Six years ago this weekend, I landed in North County. I met Geoff (and Skye) on Dog Beach six years ago today (although Geoff was half asleep and it took him 3 weeks to ask me out. […]

Goodbye to Skye

I write this with a very heavy heart as Skye is living his last hours at our house in Solana Beach. Cancer won, but without Skye giving it a tough fight. The last two days have been rough for both us and for Skye. We thought that he might […]

#MBW by the numbers and Maca-Brazil Nut Energy Bites

#MBW (monster bike week)

400 Miles logged over seven days. For some of my uber biker friends, I know that is not super impressive; but I was certainly proud. Previous to this past week, the longest I had ever ridden in 7 days was 253 miles. Yay me!

7 Betty Designs […]

Vegan, Gluten-Free Chickpea Cashew Butter Blondies and #MBW

Day three of self-inflicted Monster Bike Week #MBW. Coming off of 4 days of R and R over at the Canyon Suites in Scottsdale (“R and R” is code for “barely no exercise, lounging, eating and wine”), I was gunning for some quality and quantity in training. It’s […]

5 Spiced Tempeh in Lettuce Cups and On the Mend

A little over 4 weeks ago, I wrote a fairly whiny, ticked-off, transparent post about my first big race of the season going south due to an achilles strain.  It took me awhile to mentally regroup but I’ve finally managed to shuffle thoughts of racing to the back half of […]
