Protein-Rich Hidden Veggie Waffles (vegan, low sugar, egg free, whole grain)

I recently started working with Julia Hincman-Francavilla at Newleaf Nutrition. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have a few conditions (the famous triad of POCS, endometriosis, and hypothyroidism) that make gaining weight easy and losing weight hard.

Motivation Monday: Meet Pete

One of the things I love most about running is meeting and being inspired by other runners.

Working on new recipes

I’ve been having a blast experimenting with new recipes and thinking of new ways to feed my family and myself in a healthful way. In the past two days, I’ve tried green curry (success!), oatmeal brownie bites (needs work), chickpea meatless balls (needs lots of tweaking), and samosa chickpea and lentil burgers (needs tweaking… the 3…
