Sweet Potato Tuna Burgers

If you have a tiny human, like I do, quick-and-easy, healthy meals can be a true godsend! After a full day of chasing them around, removing them from stovetops, bathroom sinks, window sills, and whatever other high, dangerous places they are able to scramble up to, it’s nice to be cut a little slack come dinnertime. …

Whole Grain Cornbread

Hey, guys! Welcome to the weekend! I’ve been keeping myself plenty busy lately with recipe testing, blogging, working out and chasing after my busy-busy 20 month old. Life is good. Today’s recipe would be the perfect companion for that chili you’ll be making on Super Bowl Sunday. Cornbread! I like my cornbread warm, slightly sweet and …

FBB Protein Bars

It’s kind of a strange thing transitioning from an endurance athlete to a strength athlete. So many aspects of your routine are different. Obviously, the workouts are quite different. But, the macronutrient ratios of your meals also undergo a pretty big change. Carbs used to be the main focus of my fueling arsenal. Whereas now, protein …

Lemon Chia Pancakes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We hear this over and over again in the media, and, as someone who is well educated in nutrition, I can validate this to be true. And what better way to start off the day than with pancakes?  These lemon chia pancakes have become a new …

Chocolate Coconut Sugar Cookies

December has arrived, and with it, we got snow!! This is the wintery-est I have seen it here in years! I can’t wait to take Oliver sledding for the first time. He went crazy discovering slides last summer, so I have a feeling sledding is going to be a blast for him as well. One …

Heavenly Whole-Wheat Bread

Now that my son is entering the toddler stage (Eek!), getting even the simplest of tasks done is now comically complicated. For example, the proofing drawer beneath my oven is now gone. Why, you ask? Well, because in the time it takes me measure out a cup of flour, my little darling has sprinted into the …

Maple Fall Spice Latte

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good PSL (pumpkin spice latte) as much as the next fanatic. But hey, let’s face it. It can be kind of a buzzkill (haha, get it?) when just a tall version costs over $5.  So, what better way to remedy this problem than to create my own delicious, and …

Soup

Vegetable Lentil Soup with Fresh Basil

Ahhhhh fall . . . or, as we say up here in Alaska, Ahhhhh winter . . . snowless winter. Mother nature has been quite stingy with our snowfalls up here the past couple of years, at least in my neck of the woods. I feel like if it’s going to be cold enough to …

We’re almost through the first month of 2016 already. Can you believe it? My little boy is eight months old today!! He figured out climbing to standing all by himself this week, and it nearly brings tears to my eyes thinking about it because he’s growing up so fast. Walking is just around the corner, …
