Low-Key Cooking and Cleaning

While my weekend was low-key, it was pretty darn fantastic, and I feel great about getting this week kicked off right. This weekend marks the start of the spring marathoning season for me – only one week’s break from now until I finish my 50 states!!! Crazy. Now I just have to hope I don’t get injured… On Friday, my mom came down from Albany (yes, in the midst of the big snowstorm). She took the Megabus so she wouldn’t have to drive, and apparently had a very nice trip without the roads being bad. After a quick shopping expedition …

Not my cup of cocoa

This afternoon at work, I was lagging and in need of some type of pick-me-up (low blood sugar? Maybe, I had eaten a light lunch). I went into the break room to grab coffee, and found myself contemplating the hot cocoa packets next to the coffee cups. Normally, I don’t like to drink my calories (I drink my coffee with no sugar and just a touch of skim milk), but I wondered exactly how much I’d be splurging to have a cup of cocoa. The nutrition facts were divided into two sections: one for just the cocoa, and one for …

Healthy Meal: Vegetarian Chili and TGI Friday’s Spinach Artichoke Dip

I promised you full writeups of my healthy Superbowl recipes, so here you go! I didn’t end up making the chicken because I ran out of parmesan, and the chili and dip was filling enough that I didn’t need it anyway. I’ll make that recipe another time and review it. Chili recipe notes:I use just one tbsp of olive oil – it’s still enough. This time, I skipped the turkey and replaced it with textured vegetable protein (TVP) to make it vegetarian, but I’ve made it in the past with just turkey, and even with both turkey and TVP. I …

Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

With the Superbowl tomorrow, everyone on a diet is dreading a day typically full of chips, beer, and calorie-heavy snacks. There are a ton of articles with healthy recipes (check out Hungry-Girl and Poked and Prodded for some that look great). If you’re going to a party and you’re on a diet, bring your own yummies and try to avoid (or at least minimize) the other stuff. For my Superbowl plans, I’m running in the NYRR Gridiron Classic (4 miler) first thing in the morning. I ran over to NYRR today to pick up my packet/t-shirt, and it was 4.95 …

A is for Apple

Lately I’ve been snacking on apples a lot. There is a farmer’s market down in the square below my building (though Friday is their last day of the season! No fair), so I stop every few days and pick up a bunch of yummy orchard apples to keep at my desk. I usually eat one every morning around 10 or so as a mid-morning snack to get me through to lunch. I also happened to use an apple last night in my soup and salad, so I’ve been getting quite a few apples into my diet lately! I haven’t really …
