Oceanside 70.3 Race Report and the Ironman.com Athlete Tracker

Dear Ironman Dot Com,

If you are going to have a rolling start (or even if you are not), at least have better technology with real time splits and placement changes.  I get that the timing company is based in Canada, and that the eventual race winner, phenom Lionel Sanders, […]

Reaction, Fracture or Gout……..and the BEST Falafel EVER

Q4 2015 was all about A LOT of travel. I don’t envy my husband, who not only travels for play, but for work as well. Trips to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Arizona and Mexico over late October and most of November were followed up by 3 days in Colorado visiting […]

“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 […]

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 […]

The Costco Experience

As a professional chef who often buys large quantities of singular items, I haven’t quite wrapped my head around frequenting Costco. Although I’ve held a membership for 20+ years, I have rarely shopped there during the last five.  The sheer hyper-consumerism coupled with maniacal SUV/Minivan parking gridlock and the […]

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?

However, I’m not knocking THE QUESTION.  A sense […]

Eating (pretty) well and Oceanside 70.3 Race Report

I know that I’ve said this before, but when life deals you lemons, make lemonade. Which is what happened over the last year.  Last season, I was sidelined from most racing by a chronic Achilles injury (lemons).  It took me 9 months and almost every conceivable kind of therapy […]

Tapering….what’s your price for flight? Coach?

I had every intention of writing a full blown plant-based main course recipe this post, but honestly I haven’t made any dish this week worthy of the time.  Instead, I’ve eaten huge salads, baked sweet potatoes, lean proteins and English muffins slathered with avocado.  I’m also huge dark chocolate […]
