Remy’s response to literally all of the food I put in front of her lately: No. I WANT FISH.

For a girl who previously lived on raspberries, pasta, and yogurt alone this is very confusing on many levels, but mostly because she is now refusing to eat all of her old favorites.

I feel like I don’t even know her anymore.

Hi friends! Happy Saturday.

Mike and I did something a little crazy this week…and signed up for another half marathon!! So I’ll be doing the NYC Half Marathon in March and then the Brooklyn Half Marathon in May. Perhaps a little over ambitious, but I think we can do it. So far I’ve run up to 9 miles in my training and that felt great. We have a bit of a crazy February between a conference I have to go to for a few days and my SIL’s wedding, so I’m trying to load up January with as many long runs as possible.¬†Obviously each run is different and you never know what will happen on race day, but my goal is to get to 10 or 11 miles in training so that I can feel more confident on the day of.

All this running requires lots of eating and cooking because this girl is STARVING in the days after a long run. Here’s what we’ve got on this week’s meal plan!

  • roasted butternut squash soup – looks so velvety smooth
  • quinoa fried rice – love takeout at home!
  • warm farro bowl with roasted vegetables – such a hearty grain bowl
  • spaghetti squash with roasted pecan pesto – yesssssss
  • broccoli cheese baked potatoes with tempeh bacon crumbs – all about this

Happy eating!

See husband, I really can admit it when I’m wrong. (Sometimes.)

Are you challenging your taste buds in this new decade??

And by that I do NOT mean by giving up carbs and all things delicious in this world. Haaaaalllllll no. I’m zero percent about that.

I mean by introducing them to new flavors/textures/cuisines that maybe you were too scared to try in the past? Or maybe these were foods that you already loved but were too timid to tackle yourself in the kitchen??

Please say yes because these are the BEST kind of resolutions. They’re all about enriching your life, and we could all use more of that.
