Strawberry Vanilla Protein Shake


This is a great post workout shake!

Strawberry Vanilla Shake
4 large strawberries
1/2 scoop vanilla protein whey (make sure if you do give it to kids there are no supplements or additives just 100% whey. I try to find one without aspartame but I am still unsure about that whole debate anyway)
1/4 cup oats
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup water
blend well for 3-5 minutes and enjoy!

Out of Place, still in pace

Does anyone feel out of place in the fitness industry but you return and engage in it daily?

Sometimes I do. These are just some scattered thoughts about why I don't feel like I fit in or why many of us think we don't fit in with the fitness industry but in the end it really doesn't matter to our health.

Super Easy, Over Easy (No dish clean-up!)



This is a super yummy breakfast with zero clean-up! As a mom "no clean-up" alone during a busy morning makes this breakfast a winner! 

We have recently discovered the diverse abilities of our waffle maker. I like that the waffle maker  adds a touch of crunch to this dish . It cooks in 2-3 minutes flat and requires no cooking skills.

As I write this my leg is tight and painful. After past encounters with shin splints, pulled muscles, plantar faciaitis and even a stress fracture my current glute tear has proved to be the longest recovery. I refer to it jokingly as a real "bummer".


I’ve been running and exercising seriously for over 22 years and some of my friends shake their heads at me each time a new injury surfaces. They wonder why in the world I would keep exercising when I seem to keep getting hurt. The truth is that I have 3 main reasons that I will explain below.

Helpful Appliances for Healthy Eating

I'm often asked about what appliances a person should have when starting out on their clean eating plans.  Here are the top 5 I recommend and they are in order of importance!


1. Blender - I use my blender for lots of different things.  I use it to turn my oats into oat flour, I blend cottage cheese to make protein ranch and of course you can't forget the smoothies and post workout shakes.

5 Tips for a Balanced Approach to Clean Eating


Eating clean is a process and a rewarding journey that is also laden with mistakes, setbacks and obstacles. Too many of us, unfortunately, are so hard on ourselves during our journey that we never make it to our destination. So in other words we get so tied up in what is "right" and "wrong" or "good" and "bad" in eating well that we become paralyzed and miss out on our goal which is to enhance the quality and quantity of years added to our lives.
