base training plan

You know those people who display 13.1 stickers proudly on their back windshield? Well, I’m one of them. Since the moment I crossed the finish line of my first half marathon back in 2010, I’ve recognized 13.1 as a magical distance. However, after running the Nashville Country Music Marathon (my first 26.2) in April of this year, I have…

vegan recipes

Spring is officially coming at us this week! Consider celebrating the arrival of a fresh new season filled with green, by springing for plants—eat vegan for an entire day.  There’s still time to join the masses in making an official pledge to eat plant-based this Friday, March 20, via Meatout.org. Since 1985, this international Meatout event has helped raise…

Lettuce Wraps

As the summer heat and Florida humidity have been steadily on the rise as of late, I’ve been especially craving food that is what I consider to be stripped down, light and airy. Yesterday afternoon, I found myself dreaming of lettuce wraps. I have no clue what inspired this day dream of mine since it’s been quite awhile since I’ve…

I’ve been reading quite a bit of Courtney Carver’s Be More with Less blog lately, and it’s reaffirming the decisions Andrew and I have been making to rid ourselves of all kinds of excess. A particular post titled, “Why You Should Give Away 50% of Your Stuff,” really speaks to me. In the past month, I’ve quit a freelance project that was taking up an…

The subject of disconnecting has been on my brain quite a lot lately. Perhaps it’s because this time last year, my coworkers and I were embarking on a disconnect challenge, one that required we each identify a technological vice we could commit to breaking away from for an entire month. I chose Instagram in an effort to get…

2015 November

I’ve always wanted to embark upon a road trip to see parts of the U.S. I’ve never seen. This desire has grown stronger in the past handful of years, and there were a couple of times I almost made it happen, but didn’t… until last month. A few weeks ago Andrew and I said yes to the opportunity…

Nashville Country Music Marathon

Monday, September 1, marks six months since the launch of Vegan on the Run. With VOTR six months strong, I feel it’s only fitting to revisit some of the highlights from the past six months, beginning with my “On the Run” out of town adventures. Complete with each recap are photos that didn’t quite make the blog the…

vegan diet

Yesterday, I revisited several “On the Run” highlights from the first six months of Vegan on the Run. Since at the heart of each and every one of my days is plant-based cuisine, today I’ve decided to revisit the recipes that I’ve shared thus far. And so, I present to you a visual recap of the spread of vegan eats…

Watermelon

I am not what you would call a melon person. Yes, I said it. I hesitate ordering fruit salad as a side item when dining out because I know there is a 90 percent chance that it will be packed with honeydew or cantaloupe that is void of all color and freshness. Maybe some soggy pineapple if…
