Orange Sunflower Slaw

Summer is salad time at our house and the variations are endless. I like a serious crunch with my salads and this definitely provides that with the cabbage, peppers and  sesame seeds. The sesame oil brings a hint of a traditional Asian Slaw and I loved that I had all of the ingredients, no need […]

The Benefits of Working Out in the Morning

Teresa and I love to work out any time of day, but when it’s almost 100 degrees outside, we’re both thankful for our early morning boot camp workouts.

Goddess Fruit Salad

This Papaya Fruit Salad has been a family favorite for years! It’s seasonal since it calls for fresh papaya, nectarines and figs (I use dried). My girls request it every year at this time and I’ve made it so often, the recipe is stored in my memory forever. This fruit salad is so good for […]

Boot Camp is an All Inclusive Club

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s inviting people to work out. The type of conditioning might vary, but no one is exempt from my invitations. Old friends, new friends and complete strangers have all been on the receiving end, always with good intentions. I firmly believe a good sweat session reduces stress, lifts […]

Cantaloupe Sherbet

With Father’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to find something tasty for my dad that didn’t require a grill. I knew this was the one as soon as I spotted it in a Cooking Light magazine. My dad loves sherbet and cantaloupe, but who doesn’t?  It’s super easy and I’m planning to double the recipe […]

Get Outside and Play: 5 Reasons to Exercise Outdoors

I have no idea how many times I’ve told my boys to go outside and play and I’m sure my motives haven’t always been for health reasons, unless my sanity counts in there, but moving outside does wonders for our bodies. Physically and mentally we benefit from the fresh air, the change of scenery and ‘going green’ […]

Fun Friday Bootcamp: Wonder Woman Workout

We had a blast this morning celebrating the opening weekend of Wonder Woman, a total girl power flick that stars a strong female and is directed by a woman. All. the. feels. We didn’t have to deflect bullets or get to fly in an invisible plane, but we played a little Lasso of Truth and […]

Taste of Summer: Superfruit Salad

  Let me start by saying I’m absolutely in love with the Superfood Kitchen book by Julie Morris. I’m not sure what I like the most, the gorgeous photos, the nutrient information or the easy recipes. Regardless, this cookbook is a a Godsend for me and I can’t wait to get through more of the […]

They are also made with no eggs or dairy, so are suitable for those following a sugar free, vegan, gluten-free and low-calorie diet. My daughter made these when health issues required her to […]

Reward Yourself, You Earned It

Personally, I love my Carpe Diem tattoo since it reminds me of running Boston. It was a perfect reward to celebrate the achievement, but I can only have so many tattoos.  I’m guilty of rewarding myself with a pint of Ben&Jerry’s FroYo after a long run, but I can’t make a habit of it. Consuming more […]
