My #GFF – Gluten-Free Friend

When I began the gluten-free diet over seven years ago, I was the only one I knew who ate gluten-free other than a co-worker that worked with my husband Aaron.  My friends didn’t really know what “gluten-free” meant and they sure didn’t seem interested in following the gluten-free diet.  Things have sure come a long [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 16, 2013

Welcome to the middle of September.  Last week we had the hottest day of the year on Tuesday and then woke up to temps in the low 40s on Saturday (gloves were needed on our run!).  Mother Nature sure seems to be a bit bipolar these days, huh?  If I could choose, I would choose [...]

Review: Tastefully Simple Brownie Mix

I am a firm believer in chocolate therapy.  There isn’t much that chocolate can’t fix, right?  The kids have been back-to-school for close to a month now, so I knew that a batch of brownies would be the perfect way to perk them up. It was right about the time that the kids started school [...]

Gluten-Free Mondays

Everyone seems to dread Mondays.  It’s back to work or school and the hectic schedules that keep us on our toes.  My Monday morning started at 5:00 AM, when I got up for a 4 mile run.  I ran errands until 1:00 PM, but I found some pretty rockin’ deals to make my Monday pretty [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–September 8, 2013

I ran around all day thinking that it was “National Banana Nut Bread Day”, only to find out I was wrong.  It is “National Date Nut Bread Day”.  Doh!  I planned to share several different recipes for gluten-free banana nut bread, ranging from simple to more complex.  After thinking about it I decided not to [...]

Friday Ramblings

Hope all of my gluten-free friends are having a great week!  Fall weather is here and I hope it stays.  Loving the cool morning runs!  Fall also means Ohio State Football (GO BUCKS!) games are the happening place to be on Saturdays.  I just heard on the news the other day that there are several [...]

Udi’s Gluten-Free On-the-Go

Traveling when you are following the gluten-free diet can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.  I truly believe the key to success is planning.  If you fail to plan, you basically plan to fail.  Udi’s Gluten-Free helps make planning to travel gluten-free easy since most of their products don’t require refrigeration and [...]

Weekly Menu Plan–August 26, 2013

School has started and we are in the last week of summer.  Labor Day weekend is upon us, though the temps feel more like mid-July than they do heading into September.  I am getting busier in the evenings with personal training clients (YAY!), so menu planning and keeping my calendar organized is becoming an absolute [...]

ER, What?

Last summer I discovered that drinking water wasn’t enough to keep me hydrated when exercising in the heat and humidity.  I would fight dehydration after each and every long run or hard workout.  That telltale headache would start to creep in and the rest of my day would be spent fighting to rehydrate myself.  Once [...]
