  • Southern-Style Tomato Pie


    One of the saddest things about the end of summer is the end of tomatoes that are bursting with flavor. I can hardly bring myself to buy grocery store tomatoes during the off-season because they are so far removed from the real thing. We have enjoyed a great tomato season here in Charlotte and my [...]

  • Recent Eats: Fueling for Performance & Recovery + Give Me Sandwiches & Cookies


    I am having a tough time recovering from this half marathon! I think it was the combination of the effort I put into it with the extra cold conditions that took a toll on my body because I went into the race super rested. I was really sore for two days and now I just [...]

  • How to Make Delicious Pizza Using FlatOut Wraps


    If I had to list five of my favorite foods the list would include pizza, ice cream, cheese, cupcakes and peanut butter. Not exactly all the healthiest choices but very delicious! Recently, I've discovered an easy, lighter alternative to pizza that makes a great lunch or weeknight dinner. FlatOut pizza! I have been using FlatOut [...]

  • Recent Eats (All Over the Place!) + Digital Fatigue


    I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday because the first copy deadline for my book is April 1 and I have been covered up trying to knock that out. I was out with a friend last night and she asked how I was doing. I replied [...]

  • Day In The Life Tuesday: Different Every Day


    Hey, hey! Hope everyone had an awesome Tuesday. For whatever reason this always seems like the best day to do a "day in the life" post because my Tuesdays have always been my busiest and most diverse days since day one of this fitness full time gig. So, here's your day in the life Tuesday! [...]

  • What A Week of Food Shopping Looks Like for Me


    Good morning. I hope everyone is staying warm and safe. Many of my friends in Atlanta and Birmingham have endured really scary situations with this winter weather...like having to spend the night in offices, 12-hour commutes to go just a few miles, being stranded in gridlock overnight, problems getting to their children and so on. [...]

  • Happy Veterans Day + Weekend Part Two


    I have so much thanks and gratitude for all of those who have served and are currently serving our country. Both of my grandfathers served in the military (one was a West Point grad!) and my mom has been a social worker for the V.A. for over 20 years now. She has worked in multiple [...]

  • Addictively Delicious Gooey Baked Camembert


    One of my favorite things to do at Whole Foods is browse their cheese selection (especially when they are offering samples!). Before Christmas I picked up two really great cheeses. One was Yodeling Goat Gouda and the other Herve Mons Camembert, made exclusively for Whole Foods. I ate enjoyed both over the course of the [...]

  • Eat, Drink And Be Merry


    I did something last night that I haven't done in 10 years. (source - I was not that close to the stage.) I went to a Dave Matthews Band concert. I actually cannot believe that it's been so long since I've seen Dave because to say that I was obsessed in high school would be [...]
