Healthy Meal: Pineapple Fried “Rice” (Quinoa)

Healthy Pineapple Fried Rice

One of my favorite things about moving to Denver is my new commute from Dallas. When I used to fly to New York City on Thursday nights, I would have a 3.5 hour flight that would usually land around 11pm or midnight… meaning I would probably start falling asleep for the last hour of the flight, and then I’d get home and immediately crawl into bed. But now that I’m living in Denver, it’s a much shorter flight, and I’m headed west across a time zone, so I’m getting some extra time back. Tonight I got home at 8pm, and …

Healthy Meal: Spinach Dal

This week, I’m working from home – which has changed a lot about my lifestyle. Relevant to this story, it’s that I’m working independently and have access to a kitchen – which means I can eat lunch whenever I want to (instead of when my coworkers get hungry), and I can cook lunch in the kitchen. Bliss! Today I was craving Indian for lunch. I keep a few Tasty Bite meals on hand at all times (usually for Thursday nights when I get home at 11pm after a flight and am starving but don’t want to cook), and I initially …

Healthy Meal: Pumpkin Pasta

With the Atlanta Marathon coming up on Thursday and me still being completely exhausted (though most people dread going to the doctor, I cannot WAIT for my doctor’s appointment next Wednesday to find out all my test results, and am counting down the days), my nutrition leading up to the race is extremely important. I’ve been gaining quite a bit of weight lately, and even if I were feeling in tip top shape, the extra weight would probably slow me down. Therefore, I’m trying to eat foods that are highly nutritious but still with tons of carbs. One of my …

Healthy Meal: "Cream" of Roasted Red Bell Pepper Soup

Our grocery store has had red bell peppers on sale for a week or two now, piles and piles of beautiful red shiny skins. I’ve been looking for recipes to use them up (not that that’s a huge problem – I love red peppers and used to eat them constantly as a childhood snack). In any case, I found a yummy sounding recipe for roasted red pepper soup, and decided to customize it and give it a go. The original recipe is here, but I’ll provide my own (healthier) instructions here. In a saucepan, melt 1 tsp unsalted butter. Once …

Workout and a Healthy Meal: Toasted Papaya

I just had the best workout. Did my normal routine of going from machine to machine, but this time I did mini circuits by constantly switching back and forth between the machines. I usually do three sets of 15, but today I did two machines at a time: one set of 15 on machine A, one set of 15 on machine B, then one set of 8 but at a much higher weight on machine A, likewise on B, and finishing up with sets of 15. I was shocked to see how much weight I could put on the machines …
