The 30 Clean Healthy Eating Plan and Discount Code

Over the last year-plus, I have embarked on both the Whole30 and the 30Clean healthy eating challenges.  What exactly are these challenges?  For 30 days, you eliminate sugar, alcohol, legumes, grains and Paleo-style renditons of brownies, smoothies, pancakes and more.  Me, who usually preaches “eat anything in moderation” […]

How technology killed my long run and a Mango Matcha Green Smoothie

Any athlete knows that training has it ups and downs. Two weeks ago, I raced the Victoria 70.3 triathlon. It was my first big race back in over a year. Most of the race went well; but I made a ginormous, #rookie  big mistake on the bike (as in, […]

“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 […]

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 […]

Off Season Eating, PRP and Easy Veg-Tempeh Bowl

Regarding triathlon, this year feels like it has been one giant off-season.  After not running for 3 months, I managed to tow the line at Eagleman 70.3, barely pulled out a podium finish S/B/R at the San Diego International Triathlon and had a stellar Aqua-Bike at Ironman Whistler (there’s […]

Food (and artificial sweetener) for thought…..

At times, our country seems more preoccupied with vanity than with actual health.  Don’t get me wrong, I color my hair, wear makeup and seek certain skin treatments that help me maintain a more youthful visage-LOL.  However, there are times when I scratch my head at the amount of […]

Grain-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate “Fudgy Cookie Thingies and a Non-Structured Week of Triathlon Training

Garbanzo Beans. Yeah, that’s right.  These grain-free cookies are made with a can of garbanzo beans.  Beans in cookies……?????   Eeeewwww….Now before you dismiss such a strange sounding item, I’ll tell you up front that they were pretty good.  For some, they might lose points because they are soft […]

Fakin’ Bacon, Kale, Tomato and Avocado Salad

Another day, another kale salad……Seriously, I need to write a book called “365 days of Kale”.   Or to make it easier, I might abbreviate the title (and my commitment) to “30 days of Kale”.  Or if I name it “50 shades of Kale” and get that Christian guy to […]
