Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Rice and Beans

IMG_7356

Recovery from Wildflower is going really well.  I ended up taking 3 complete rest days, and then somehow found myself committing to a marathon that’s 5 weeks away. My sister’s last race marathon was in San Francisco two years ago, and she wants to get revenge on the course [...]

Wheat Berry Salad with Kale and Feta

If I could have three wishes, I would be super tempted to make Mondays off one of them.  I was lucky enough to have two in a row in January and again in February, and I definitely made the most of them. Even though it was unusually chilly (we [...]

Coconut-marinated Kale Salad

IMG_6565

I ate a LOT of sugar over Christmas.  It was honestly kind of gross.  But today’s a new day, ripe with possibility and marinated kale. This is not a kick-start-your-2013 weight loss recipe, because it’s not low fat in any way (hello almond butter AND coconut milk), but it’s [...]

Chickpea and Pasta Salad

Life is about to get real.  I worked every day last week making copies, planning lessons, and prepping my room but now the school year and marathon training are starting and I’m going to have 240 students (and all their work) to keep track of. It’s a good thing I [...]

Kale and Red Cabbage Salad

I feel like the “reset button” has been a popular topic on a lot of blogs. You know, that reset you need after too much beer or too much cake or too much sitting on the couch watching the Olympics but not actually doing any physical activity yourself? A [...]

Napa Cabbage Slaw

The other day my friend and I were talking about time.  Having time, finding time, and making time.  I know none of this is new, but I think it’s a good reminder.  Basically the bottom line, no matter how OMGSOBUSY you are, is that if you really want to do [...]

Sweet Potato and Kidney Bean Salad

Mike and I tend to get really into TV shows after they’ve been on for a couple years.  Right now we are OBSESSED with parenthood and are working our way through the first season on Netflix. I feel ridiculously behind the times that I’m just now watching this, but [...]

Roasted Beet Salad with Maple Dressing

salad

The sun is shining, and I just DOMINATED my track workout.  My mood is about 203498 times better than it was when I woke up. I am one of those people who likes to have my plate completely full at all times, but that usually means I’m running around like [...]

Avocado and Dill Pasta Salad

I have found the dish I want to bring to every potluck from now on. Except I don’t really go to potlucks. But if I did, I’d bring this always.  So full of vegetables, and the dressing is INSANE (in a good way). It has been one heck of a [...]

Eat to the Beat: “Beet It” Salad

Elly Says Opa, a blog I’ve been reading since before I started blogging, is 5 years old! Elly used to host a blog event “Eat to the Beat,” which involves creating a recipe based on a song or band, and she brought it back to celebrate the blog’s fifth [...]
