WARNING: this is not an easy recipe. But it’s not THAT difficult, just really time consuming but oh, so worth it! A friend sent me this recipe when I was looking for more meatless meals. I didn’t think that it sounded that great but I trusted her review and gave it a shot. Both my husband and I agree that it was very flavorful and we didn’t even realize that there wasn’t any meat! Even if you say you don’t like cauliflower, it’s marinated in a beer and lime concoction. The salsa alone is worth making for chips another time. more...

July 19th! Ok, so Amanda and I completed IronMan 70.3 in Racine and we were Rockstars! Well, maybe we could have done better. However, we did it and we both beat our times from last year. I was able to take off 26 minutes and Amanda took off a WHOLE hour. WOW. How impressive is that!? We arrived in Racine on Saturday to be welcomed by tornado warnings, sirens and thunderstorms. We had to drop off our bikes and leave them over night in the storm. This princess of a bike has not been in the rain yet and I hated the idea of leaving it. How were my gears going to be in the morning? What about my pads on my aero bars? It was lightening and raining so hard! I wasn’t able to get in my last bike ride before leaving it in the rain. I mean it would be a bid deal if I didn’t have a hill to start the race. more...

A healthy lifestyle can be a real struggle when put into situations with lots of temptations, and little to no healthy choices. Just last week I was put into a situation where I was not aware of the food or drinks that would be available, so I knew I would have to make quick, smart decisions that would not hinder my waistline, or my fun! In the summer, we absolutely love to spend time on the lake. Most of the time, being at the lake involves good drinks and great food, but that can also mean unhealthy options. Usually I try to stay prepared, but when I am not in control of what is being made or brought, it can be difficult… more...

Every morning when my alarm goes off I’m faced with the same decision: exercise or more sleep? And it doesn’t seem to matter how much or how little sleep I get the night before, it’s always a gamble what I’ll choose! So far, I have been averaging 3 hours during the week, I only count during the week because weekends seem to be easy for exercise. If I had to guess what helps get me out of bed I would say: more...

I was recently at a conference and attended a session about heart disease and a plant-based diet. The speaker mentioned the documentary Forks Over Knives and encouraged everyone to watch it. So I did – I borrowed it from one of my favorite people and sat down for 96 minutes. Well, actually, I watched about half, thought “I want my husband to watch this, too” and the next day started it all over. It basically advocates a whole-food, plant-based diet to fight or reverse a lot of diseases. It was compelling enough for me to get several cookbooks from the library to try a more whole-food, plant-based diet. There were two cookbooks I picked up. more...
