Pizza and Salad

It is almost the weekend! How has your Thursday been treating you? It has been awesome over here!

I woke up this morning ready to tackle a tempo run! I have a love/hate relationship with speed workouts these days. The “hate” portion is because they are physically and mentally tough, but the love portion is because I [...]

Grilled Vegetable Salad

There is something about grilled vegetables that just screams summer. To me, grilling vegetables is one of the best ways to prepare them. It just seems to enhance the flavors. Plus, it is certainly a simple preparation. Who doesn’t like a meal that is simple and comes together quickly? A few nights ago, I decided to [...]

BBQ Black Bean Burgers

I had a craving for a black bean burger for lunch today. That is probably a weird craving, but I rolled with it.

I usually buy the frozen kind, but they are full of ingredients that I really don’t need to be putting into my body. After searching around the internet and reading some other blogs, I [...]

Tofu Fried Rice

I had a hankering for some Chinese food last night! What is better than fried rice? Well, there are a few dishes that I like more, but they are complicated and this was pretty simple. I usually make chicken or shrimp fried rice, but in an effort to eat less meat, I decided to try it [...]

Fast Tomato Sauce

I was in the mood for an Italian meal a few nights ago, So I pulled out my newest cookbook, How to Cook Everything (inspired by Jess). This cookbook is awesome. I love his philosophy on food and cooking. He is a runner too!

I want to eventually make everything in the essential recipes section (maybe I [...]

Grilled Pizza

Two nights ago, I had my very first experience with grilling pizza. Verdict? Delicious. I don’t think I will make it in the oven again. It had that “wood fired taste”. You know what I mean?

I started with a base of whole wheat pizza dough. I had some left in my freezer that was calling my [...]

Shrimp and Vegetable Quesadillas

It has been awhile since I have posted a food creation, so I thought I would throw a quick one out there.

Last night, I really needed a break from studying, so I took a little extra time to make dinner. This recipe is really easy and very customizable. Throw whatever spices, vegetables, and protein that you [...]
