Things I’ve been pondering about my food recently. . . .

Why am I so addicted to these crackers?

They are seriously half cracker, half cookie because they melt in my mouth! I can never buy them again!


Why did this squash in the Acorn Squash Bisque give me such bad gas!

Sorry, Honey!


Why do I feel the need to have cereal for dinner every night?


Why are these just made these for kids?

Adults should be able to enjoy them too! πŸ˜‰


How does a kale Green Monster compare to a spinach Green Monster?

No comparison! I ended up throwing out half of this ‘kale’ Green Monster. I couldn’t handle the small chunks of kale; it was disgusting! Maybe a Vitamix would puree it more?


How many substitutions can one make in a recipe?

Cauliflower Crust Pizza


1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 3/4 cup vegan cheddar cheese

1 egg, beaten vegan egg: 1 Tablespoon flax + 3 Tablespoons water

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp crushed garlic 1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 tsp garlic salt

Result: too many substitutions!

But I’m not sure this would have been a hit anyway. It really didn’t taste like pizza.


Running this morning went okay. I really just have not been feeling it this week. Good thing it was a cut-back week anyway.

Distance: 5 miles

Time: 43 minutes

Weather: 25* F (I miss my balmy 45*!)




What was/is your workout today?

    1. I love Z bars, but white chocolate chip brownie?! That sounds fantastic…I know what I’m going to be hunting for this weekend. πŸ™‚ My workout today was an upper body workout – Arms/Shoulders/Abs/Cardio.

    1. we LOOOVE those crackers too.
      they are like…CRACK πŸ™‚ for the 5 year old.

    1. i probably won’t workout today…still recovering from my marathon! but tomorrow i’m planning on running. πŸ™‚

    1. My workout (since I missed them all this week) is to run on the treadmill and then do a solid, sweatfest in the weights area. πŸ™‚ I don’t think I’d enjoy a kale smoothie either, chunky stuff weirds me out!

    1. I did a trail run with my dogs this morning…and I thought low forties was getting chilly! You just gave me a reality check.

    1. Yoga, sweet yoga. Always the best on a friday afternoon! Yay! And…agreed on the kale monster. blech!

    1. I can’t believe it’s already below freezing there!!! Fall is our warmest time of year–it was 75 today, at least. The mornings are starting to get much colder though.

    1. honey,

      my question is why am I addicted to you πŸ˜‰
