Naan Pizzas

Naan Pizzas

Another great weeknight dinner idea with ingredients from Trader Joe’s. My friend Stacy got me started on this recipe when she made it for us one night. I do have to say I was a little skeptical at first when I heard this ingredient called “naan” was involved-what the heck is that? This is a […]

New Tech Running Gear

My work has this awesome, amazing, terrific program called Health Rewards. Basically how it works is if you complete a biometric test and pass all the tests (aka showing you are a healthy person) you get a reward in the form of $! It’s also pretty neat because even if you fail any components of […]

Coincidence? I think not…(and some injury tips)

Coincidence? I think not…(and some injury tips)

The chocolate protein is defiantly my favorite flavor; to me the vanilla and strawberry flavors just didn’t hide the protein […]

Chicken and Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Chicken and Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Race season is starting around Chicago as Spring begins. My favorite dish to make the night before a race is Chicken and Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce. David made this dish before my very first race last year (Shamrock Shuffle-Chicago). It’s now become a staple dish for dinner for us. It’s great because it’s full […]
