Colorful Kale Slaw

Colorful Kale Slaw

I used to hate kale. I thought it was bitter, and fiber-y, and harsh. I didn’t understand what people were ranting and raving about when honestly, it tasted like I was chomping on tough weeds. I figured people must be brainwashing themselves into liking it […]

Pumpkin Tart with Praline Crumble

A few weeks ago when we decided to stay in San Francisco for the holidays, I told Ashton that I was going to cook a vegan Thanksgiving dinner for us. No turkey. No turkey gravy. No butter, cream, whipped cream… You can imagine how well […]

Super Butter Cups

Super Butter Cups

Twice a year, the University of Oregon would have a street fair on campus where food trucks, craft booths, and everything in between would set up on the main road. While booking it to Frisco’s, the food truck that had my favorite pulled chicken sandwich, […]

Pumpkin Spiced Protein Smoothie

Pumpkin Spiced Protein Smoothie

Since I finished the marathon, I’ve gone back to what I know best… Sprint and strength workouts, and it feels SO good! I didn’t realized how much I’ve missed it. There’s just something about hard interval sprinting that running for hours just doesn’t do for me.

(Side Note: I’ll be sharing one of my favorite sprint endurance workouts later this month.)
