The Definition of Carbo Loading

Carbo Loading: (verb) To consume large amounts of carbohydrates through food intake. Above: spiralized zucchini noodles with my homemade Alfredo sauce, veggies similar to the ones from Thanksgiving, and two toasted whole-wheat English Muffins with jam. Two muffins are better than one ;). . Speaking of carbs… I’m finally getting around to posting the recipe […]

Describe your Perfect Date

Miss Rhode Island: That’s a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

Vegan Thursdays, Take One

Cheated a bit and had this week’s Vegan Thursday on Wednesday so I could blog about it on Thursday. But of course I’ll still be eating vegan today (the real Vegan Thursday), too. Last night, I tried a new product and resurrected an old fave: Butternut fries! A big bowl of whole-wheat angel-hair pasta (tossed […]

I’ve never really taken seriously the tradition of making new year’s resolutions.  However, I have a friend who is serious about her Resolutions. And this year she called me, all excited, to tell me about her idea: After reading my post, Help for Omnivores interested in Veganism, she decided that one day a week, she’s […]

Make your own Liquid Crack

Running In The Cold Weather

Upon seeing the title of this post, the following may have crossed your mind: “What on earth is a girl from Texas doing writing a post about cold-weather running?” Admittedly, I’m not forced to deal with below-zero temperatures, ice storms, or blizzards like those of you in locations such as Canada. But Texas winters can be […]

Hats off to the Christmas Season of 2009

You prepare for the Christmas season all year (the stores do, anyway!), and then just like that, it’s over… and you have to prepare again the next year! But even with all the rushing, the stress, and the mess, it’s hard to not love that time of year. So, until next December, hats off to the Christmas season. Hats such as… A hot […]
