Holiday Kale Salad and Groovy Training

Another early morning.  I love this time of day. The time before day break.  I have one-sided conversations with the dog (who at best cocks his head quizzically at me but most often casts me a baleful look). I’m roasting a bunch of vegetables for the week.  More often […]

THE QUESTION, The Ultimate Veggie Burger and Gearing up for Final Races

Today, I had THE QUESTION. You know, the one eventually asked by most omnivores to most vegans upon opening up a conversation about diet.

You know, THE QUESTION. The BIG QUESTION.  Its huge, even G.I.A.N.T by some standards…….

Where do you get your protein?

Recovery Weeks and Chocolate Espresso Energy Squares

I’m having a recovery week from training so I’ve had more time to do non-triathlon things that I usually reserve for the days in slower months.  I’m quickly finding out that, although I THINK I’m good at recovery weeks; I’m really not as they mess with my head-particularly when […]

I think that when Goldilocks became of age and morphed into an oenophile (she did that, right?), she became enamored with Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir grape is a difficult one to grow and the wines made from it are persnickety; some are too hot and sulfuric; some are […]

Whips, Hips and Paddles

Just to be clear, my blog hasn’t gone all crazy and wild on you;  I’ll save that for a later date, lol. This is just a little write up about a creamy dessert, movement and triathlon toys.

Paddles for the last 3 months, I’ve done a fair amount of swimming […]

Tri Biking and Coconut-Cilantro Brown Rice

It’s hard to believe that it’s 2014. Today I was out riding with my friends, Julie and Monica, and Julie mentioned that she had a Nytro women’s team kick-off meeting tonight (read: super fast girl team in San Diego).   I told her that, four years ago, I was at […]

A Vegan Take on a Breakfast Burrito and Weekend Training

I’m one of those people who prefers savory to sweet for breakfast.  As much as I adore smoothies, I tend to drink them midday. In the a.m., I leave the oatmeal and muffins to others, and I enjoy baked sweet potatoes and the occasional kale salad (yeah, I know…weird, […]
