Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday going so far? We had a rocky morning here, but things have greatly improved! Early-morning breakfast: English muffin with peanut butter and banana + iced coffee. I love this breakfast because I can throw it together in just a few minutes. And, of course, it’s tasty and filing! After his first feeding of the day, Quinn got cranky, which, unfortunately, has become a not-so-fun morning pattern for us. He hates…

Love mac & cheese? Me too! But, of course, I don’t love how it’s loaded with calories and fat and usually falling short on nutrients. You know what I’m talking about, right? Pasta, cheese, butter, more cheese”¦ not the healthiest ingredients. With that in mind, I created a remade version using Brussels sprouts, spinach, Greek yogurt, reduced-fat cheddar, garlic, almond milk and almond flour. Quite the all-star cast, right? I pumped up the volume of…

Good morning, friends! I wasn’t in the mood for CrossFit or running yesterday, so I took Murphy for an extra long walk and counted that as my exercise for the day. The weather was a little cool, but bright and sunny, so we strolled along and enjoyed the afternoon. Murphy sniffed everything in his path while I listened to the most recent episode of the Balanced Bites podcast. Snack After our walk, I came home…

Lunch Today’s lunch was leftover cheesy Shepherd’s Pie with steamed spinach for some extra nutrients and “bulk.” The spinach was also on its last legs, so I wanted to use it up before it went bad. Snack After lunch, I did some baking for my post on Health.com next week. I…

Happy holidays from our family to yours! Yesterday’s 24 Days of Togetherness was “take a family photo,” so we had a little fun with the self-timer on my camera last night. But, no matter what we tried, we could not get Murphy to look at the camera. He looks like a little Scrooge, doesn’t he? (I have no idea why Mal and I are leaning like that! It’s like we’re on a boat or something….

Have I mentioned before that I love school vacation week? I love it because Mal and I do fun things together like make Burpees t-shirts for the first CrossFit Open WOD! Burpees stink, but homemade t-shirts are fun! Ok, we’re are super nerds, but our special Burpees shirts motivated us to bang out some serious reps in 7 minutes. My freak-of-nature husband did 119 Burpees; I did 93. There was a little miscommunication with my…
