Checking In On My 2015 “Engage” Goals


Now that we’re about a month into 2015, it’s probably a good point for me to check in on my 2015 resolutions to engage. How am I doing so far? My first goal was to engage in learning – and I’ve pretty much been nailing my goal to “listen to a TED talk once per day.” To prove it, here’s my Excel log of the TED talks I’ve watched so far – there have only been one or two days that I’ve missed it, and I’ve usually made up for it the very next day by watching two or three …

My New Favorite Kitchen Tool: The Vegetti


My friend Becki did a great recipe post this week, and talked about using a Vegetti to spiralize her veggies into pasta. I had heard of a spiralizer before, but it seemed expensive/difficult/complicated. However, when Becki made it look so easy, and pointed out that the Vegetti is cheaper than a regular spiralizer, I popped over to Amazon and bought myself one… for just $13. Hooray for Amazon Prime, because today at lunchtime, it was on my doorstep! As you may have noticed, I’ve totally fallen through on my promise to get some race reports up this week. Work has just …

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 Recipe: Goat Cheese, Roasted Butternut Squash, and Port-Soaked Cranberries

Goat Cheese And Roasted Butternut Squash With Port Cranberries

As I mentioned yesterday in my Thanksgiving post, I mostly kept my Thanksgiving menu pretty traditional and served all the same dishes as last year… except one. While I usually serve butternut squash soup as an appetizer to start the meal, soup is really just too filling to kick off a Thanksgiving dinner. Plus, I’d rather serve something that guests can munch on while chatting, rather than having to be seated with utensils in hand. Fortunately, my mom shared with me this wonderful hors d’oeuvre recipe that she had picked up at her health food co-op. Since I couldn’t find …

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 …
