Eating Healthy While Traveling

Summer is almost here and vacation getaways are on the horizon! Maintaining healthy eating habits while traveling can be challenging. Avoiding unhealthy foods is tough enough as it is, and it can feel impossible to eat healthy while traveling and on vacation.  Read on for our tips on eating healthy while on the go this summer.  […]

Blueberry Muffins (Sugar Free, Vegan, Gluten Free)

These quick and easy blueberry muffins are made completely fat free and sugar free, but are light, fluffy and moist on the inside. 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 […]

We’re Pretty Excited for Summer!

It’s an understatement to note the weather this spring hasn’t been the greatest, but that didn’t stop us from planning some summer fun with outdoor bootcamps. We’ll continue to run out of Lake Oswego on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, but are super excited to FINALLY announce our first round of Beaverton and Tualatin bootcamps. […]

Upgraded Pizza

I loved everything about this recipe, once I found the chickpea flour. Anything with feta pretty much wins me over, but I loved the combination of feta, tomatoes and kale with this non-traditional pizza. I would probably scale down the onions the next time I make this for the family, but really this pizza is […]

Blueberry Lemon Mousse Cake with Scented Orange Blossoms

This beautiful dessert was dreamed up by pastry chef Henrietta Inman and featured in her cookbook Clean Cakes ($18; We love it for Mother’s Day because she can enjoy it guilt-free, the whipped coconut cream filling doesn’t call for dairy or processed sugars. I love it so much that I’ve made it twice already! Happy Mother’s […]

From Pavement to Paintball: Making Time to Work Out

It’s the number one reason I hear for not working out and, trust me, I get it. I have three boys, a dog, work, and an endless to-do list like everyone else. Yes, there will be days when you really don’t have time to work out, but I still say that we need to MAKE […]


I asked Kristen Moore of Mindful Health Solutions to write a guest blog on Mindfulness, specifically related to Mindful eating. We live in a fast paced world and it’s good to remind ourselves to slow down, live in the moment and enjoy life, especially when it comes to food and eating. I hope you enjoy […]

A delicious, beautiful, and healthy Mother’s Day breakfast that anyone can make

Instead of sharing a recipe, I decided to share ideas on creating a beautiful, healthy, simple breakfast for Mother’s Day. This breakfast plate is easy to prepare with kids, healthy, colorful and nutritious. The inspiration for this meal was the colorful bell pepper eggs. From there I chose to add a breakfast salad made with Arugula […]

Get SMART with Goals

Teresa and I wanted to share some of our SMART goals with you; it was tough choosing because we have so many favorites! Teresa’s Goal I run quite a bit, but haven’t really been running with a focus for a couple of years now. My personal goal is actually an old one, to qualify for […]

What no one tells you about your goal weight

…it’s going to lead you to another very important, lifelong goal! Part two, of sharing our goals, is one we think almost everyone can relate to. It’s not as fun as training for an event, not nearly as popular as the topic of weight loss, but we think it’s just as important. We hope that by sharing […]

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 […]

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 […]
