Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. I’m actually running the Falmouth Road Race this morning, so, hopefully, I have all good stories to share later on. Even though I did a fair amount of running this summer, I’m feeling particularly under-trained for it. Whomp whomp. If you missed the 24 hour replay of this Instagram Live, here it is for your viewing pleasure. It has quite the nice mix of questions and…

Hi, guys! How’s it going? It’s been quite the whirlwind summer for us. We had three back-to-back vacations, which, obviously, were a blast, but, whoa, we need a vacation from our vacations! If you have little kids, I feel like you totally know what I mean – staying up late, having a few cocktails, lots of laughs, but then waking up with the sun! Oy. Let’s just say, we had some FULL DAYS on vacation. Anywayyyyyyy, it’s time…

“Excuse Girl” strikes again! [insert eye roll emoji] On my way home from Stowe on Tuesday afternoon, I told Mal something along the lines of “I wish I could eat like that all the time” with regard to the meals that we enjoyed at Stowe Mountain Lodge. The food was truly amazing—fresh (often local), interesting (so many incredible flavor combinations), and healthy (not oversized or loaded with oil and salt). Basically, the resort made it easy to eat…

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you had a very lovely weekend! 🙂 So, here’s that mini muffin recipe that I mentioned the other day. It’s a new favorite in our house for sure. Be sure to bookmark and/or pin it! These Gluten-Free Banana Protein Mini Muffins are the perfect little treat when you want just a bite of something sweet. The recipe only calls for a handful ingredients, so you can easily whip up a…

Good morning and very happy FRIDAY to you! I still have a few more meal plans to make this week, but I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging on Friday and over the weekend, so I decided to put together another edition of What I’m Loving Lately. I heard a rumor you guys like these posts! 🙂 Ok, here we go! Qman asking me to cuddle with him. Oh my heart. Qman knows how much…

Good morning! Let’s kick off the week with a protein-packed and seriously delicious breakfast recipe! Ever since I discovered the awesomeness of PB2 (side note: I actually resisted buying it forever, thinking WHY would anyone want powdered peanut butter when the real stuff is so amazing?), I find myself adding it to everything, including these super satisfying Overnight Peanut Butter Protein Oats. With the hot, humid weather just around the corner, I see myself enjoying this breakfast a whole heck of a lot….

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! Here’s the next edition of Monday In Meals, a new-ish blog series, where I document what I ate throughout the day on Monday. If you’re a long-time reader, you probably remember the blog’s early days when I used to document allllllll of my meals and snacks, food journal-style, sometimes blogging 3 (!!) times per day. CNC has since morphed into a fitness/lifestyle/family blog, but it’s still fun to return to my…

Anyone else digging the flavor combination of lemon + coconut lately? Oh man, if you haven’t tried it already, you need to. It’s incredible– sort of sweet with a hint of tangy citrus. Mmm! I just love it so much. And I love it even more as part of a healthy, protein-packed, no-bake treat that I can make in just minutes. This recipe for No-Bake Lemon Coconut Protein Bars is one that will definitely become a staple in our house….

Hey, hey! It seemed like a lot of you guys liked my original “In the Name of Science: 4 Days of Meals & Snacks,” so I decided to write another one. My participation in the ulcerative colitis study actually ended last week (it was just a 6-week study), so I won’t need to track my food intake anymore, but I still thought you guys might want to see what I ate in my final week. Spoiler: I ate a lot of eggs, cereal, and soup….

Good morning and happy Friday to you! The weekend is almost here, which means it’s time for another Friday favorite: What I’m Loving Lately! I missed last week’s post, so I have quite the round-up for you guys this morning. Enjoy! Coconut protein powder in my (hot) coffee – Of course, I love mixing it into my iced coffee, but it makes an incredible afternoon pick-me-up in hot coffee too. Just mix 12 ounces of coffee (not too hot)…

Hi, friends! Happy New Year!!! With the new year kicking off today, I decided to write a special healthy eating edition of What I’m Loving Lately. I actually started my “January 1st” the day after Christmas””mostly to put an end to a week-long sugar and booze bender””so I’ve eaten pretty well and tried some new things recently and wanted to share what I’ve been loving lately. Hopefully, it will motivate you in 2016 to do the same! Enjoy! Hemp seeds…

Our little dude turned 17 months old yesterday, so I wanted to write a “day in the life” post as a way to remember the day. When Quinn was first born, I used to blog about our daily adventures once a month, and it was such a great way to remember those times. I love going back and remembering what life was like at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc. And, of course, I…

Hi, friends! I haven’t done a Photo Dump post in over a year now, so I figured it was time for another one. Plus, I need to free up some space on my iPhone because I can’t take any new photos! Gahhhhh! Anyway, without further ado, here are some random pics from my iPhone! Enjoy! Quinn’s expression in this photo is priceless. I put a sneaker on his little foot for the very first time,…

Hey, hey! Just wanted to share some photos from yesterday as well as a cool fundraiser that I am participating in this weekend and some delicious smoothie and juice recipes from my new book. Ok, here goes! 3:00 AM… Murphy is not a fan of early morning feedings, especially when he’s not the one being fed. Poor pug. His life is so hard. Pre-WOD eats: Toast with almond butter and banana with a side of baby…

Hi, guys! How’s your week going? I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday afternoon. Monday and this morning totally flew by for me. Holy moly! It’s like they didn’t even happen. Or did they?! I dunno. Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday and today! Q knows how to have a good time! Look at that little smile. So adorable. I taught him all about butterflies (and pug-a-pillars) yesterday. He’s a big fan now. I ran…
