Pineapple-Carrot Oatish Muffins

This picture is the quick oats version. It’s been a while since I shared anything with you all. I apologize for this. Sometimes I sit and wonder how life got this busy. I have been helping out with a few committees, and attended a couple charity events. And this Friday, I am handing out race packages Read More

Cereal/Granola Breakfast Pucks

I thought I’d tempt you all with a picture of the finished product first. There’s really nothing fancy about these granola bars, except their shape. You change the shape and name of something, and all of a sudden, you’ve got everyone’s attention! Well, if it works, why not? I’ve been a gym/food/fitness junkie all my Read More

Espresso-Cacao Protein Surprise

I love coffee and drink it regularly, but I have never been one to drink more than one cup/day. The more active I am, the less I want to drink it, and it has always been that way. Too much of a good thing is actually not a good thing at all. I am still Read More

Making Sushi at Home

I’ve been romanced by sushi for as long as I can remember. In fact, I believe I first tried sushi after frequenting sushi bars solely for raw oysters! Yes, raw oysters. My partner-in-crime and I could not wait until we were old enough to drink sake and enjoy raw oysters on the half shell! I Read More

Chia Seed Breakfast/Snack Jars

I absolutely love yogurt, but there is something dairy-free, and even better, for me at least, because I love texture – Chia Seed Pudding or Breakfast Jars!                   Here is a breakdown of the nutritional value of chia seeds based on a 1 ounce (28 grams) serving: Fiber: Read More

Burritos To Go

I can’t name one person who doesn’t like something Tex-Mex. When I first had authentic Mexican cuisine, it was only then that I realized the Tex-Mex style I was accustomed to was not authentic Mexican cuisine. When I was invited out for dinner, it would be “Let’s go for Mexican”. I don’t think people were Read More
