Meatout Monday

Between my marathon trip to Nashville with my mom just two weeks ago, and Mother’s Day Sunday, “Mum” has certainly been the word lately. With the launch of Vegan on the Run, and marathon training, I’ve spent ample time since the beginning of the year reflecting on two arenas my mom has been (and continues to be) highly impactful, and…

Double Bridge

When the topic of this year’s Pensacola Double Bridge Run originally came up in conversation, I assumed the race was either the same weekend as the New Orleans Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon (just like it was last year), or pretty close. Regardless, I went ahead and wrote it off as a “no go” for me,…

I know I’ve sounded off quite frequently this summer about surviving the heat, but it’s certainly been a hot one. Thanks to Vega’s Fuel Your Better campaign, despite the heat, I’ve been able to improve my fueling regime this summer, and focus on asking myself a single question: “What’s holding you back from better?” Along with helping me answer this question…

When I’m asked, “Do you want to do brunch?” my immediate thought is, “Is there anything for me to eat there (aside from a fruit cup)?” Truthfully, while I typically abide by a “You can take me (almost) anywhere” mantra, brunch can be a tough one for vegans. But when it’s on, it’s on. In recent…

Sriracha

I grew up loving breakfast for dinner. At the time, it felt a bit like living on the edge. As an adult, I must confess I still feel slightly rebellious indulging on tofu scrambles at night. Perhaps that’s why I love doing so. Either way, this simple and easy tofu scramble recipe is a 10-15 minute quick fix…

Cacao Nibs

In my early 20s, during my five year stint of working for Starbucks, they launched the perfect oatmeal, or so it was labeled. It was here I began to see value in this wonder porridge—value I failed to see as a child, unless this value involved having a spoonful of oatmeal with an entire bowl…

2015 May

I’ve been a bit quiet lately for a number of reasons. The number one reason being, I’ve been dealing with some growing pains. Let’s face it. They don’t call them growing pains for nothing. They’re called growing pains because they cause a significant amount of discomfort. Each season in my life that has produced monumental growth has been accompanied…

“The proverbial fork in the road suddenly slapped me in the face. In front of me, in the distance, my current life—once defined by a comfortable job, a comfortable apartment, and a comfortable relationship—and that of a new path filled with unknown adventure, storybook romance, and full-time travel. There was no question; with absolutely every…
