Roasted Mushrooms, Tomato & Cashew Salad

We love mushrooms and cashews so I was super excited when I found this recipe that combines both. It’s beautiful, healthy and delicious, and since it’s served warm it’s great on these cooler, rainy days of spring. Plus, cashews are one of the best sources of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is critical for improving the […]

You’ve Set a Goal, Now Get Motivated

For most of us it’s pretty easy to come up with a list of goals. It can be fun to sit down and dream about crossing the finish line of your first marathon or fitting into the ‘skinny’ clothes in your closet. Without a plan, though, it’s just that- a dream or a wish. Shelly wrote a […]

Corn Frittata with Pecorino-Romano Cheese

I’ve found the perfect recipe for Easter morning. Sadly, I’ve had this tucked away since 2014, waiting for an appropriate time to test it out. I wish I had made it sooner! It’s super easy and was a hit with everyone in my family except the kid who hates eggs and corn. It’s not a […]

Always Be a Goal Digger

We love this saying because goals are so important for growth and success. Elbert Hubbard wrote “Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organised their energies around a goal.” So… always be a goal digger! : ) At Strength, Stamina, Spirit we like […]

We All Need Friends

There are certain words that are used far too much in the English language like “epic,” “literally” and “blessed” to name a few. When I look at the people in my life and the friendships I’ve been given, blessed is the only word that I can use to describe them. It’s definitely not me, I’ll […]

Tomato Basil Soup

Nothing beats a slice of margarita pizza. The tomato, mozzarella cheese and basil combination just can’t be beat. This soup comes pretty close with the basil and tomato, just add a little mozzarella and it seriously melts in your mouth. Next time I’m going to make sandwich ‘croutons’ with a little bread and mozzarella and give […]

Fancy Chili

I held onto this recipe for a long time, two years to be exact before finally giving it a try. From a Good Housekeeping magazine that featured Trisha Yearwood, the actual recipe calls ground beef, but I omitted it and it still tasted like good old fashioned comfort food.   Fancy Chili 2 garlic cloves, […]

Mexican Corn and Bean Soup

Soup is one of my favorite things about fall and this recipe is a perfect find for a busy family. All of my kids loved it, my husband commented on how tasty it was and, best of all, it was so easy and all of the ingredients I had on hand. I cooked the onion […]

Loaded Potato Soup

Another one from the Prevention Magazine’s ‘Clean Comfort’ list. My boys all loved this soup, which says a lot. I think I would add a little more potato, just to thicken it up a bit, but the flavor is perfect. I loved that all of the ingredients, with the exception of the leek and dried […]

Superhero Muffins

It hasn’t even been two weeks since I got the cookbook and people are already tired of hearing about how much I love Shalane Flanagan’s ‘Run Fast Eat Slow’ cookbook. These muffins are moist and all sorts of yum. I can’t wait to see how many different combinations of nuts and goodies I can use […]

Clean Chocolate Chip Cookies

I clipped this recipe out of the February 2016 Prevention Magazine and held onto it until I had the perfect occasion. I finally made them as a birthday treat and discovered that I should have made them sooner and I needed  double the recipe. My boys had a hard time leaving any of these for […]

Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup

I’ve been waiting for some cooler temperatures to make this soup and had the perfect stormy day to give it a try. This is good with or without a toasted cheese sandwich and definitely qualifies as comfort food. You do need to plan ahead with this, since it takes time to roast the tomatoes, but really […]

Flip a Coin Workout

This was so much fun!!  We had a blast, just needed more time. I wanted to do 60 seconds each, 45, then 30, but had to accept what we had and call it good. We will see this again!
