Red Potatoes Roasted With Rosemary and Mustard

Red Potatoes Roasted with Rosemary and Mustard in Bowl
With onion and garlic temporarily off limits I’ve been challenging myself to get creative with flavors in the dinner department. Everyone likes roasted potatoes (well, everyone in my house, almost, sort of) but what if I jazzed them up with, say, a grainy mustard and some dried rosemary? Verdict? LOVED BY ALL! I’ve made these twice in the past week as I perfected the timing and both times Ryan asked for seconds, the Husband raved about them unsolicited and Evan, well, he took a bite [...]

Cucumber Bites With Blueberries and Cheddar

Cucumber Bites with Blueberries and Cheddar - Step 2
Getting creative in the snack department was a big factor in my initial 70-pound weight loss and now that I’m attempting to eat low-FODMAP, I’m rediscovering its powers. There’s just something totally satisfying about preparing a snack than grabbing something quick (that I always end up regretting) out of the pantry. Before I went grocery shopping this weekend I rummaged through my fridge and pantry for low-FODMAP friendly options. I came up with: Cucumber — On all safe lists I can find. Sharp Cheddar (Thanks to Cabot who [...]

Produce Pick: Dragon Fruit

Dragon Fruit
Last week I took a trip to my local Wegmans and although I was completely turned off by the hordes of people (this is why I never go) and horrible layout, I’m always impressed by the diversity in its produce department.  I mean who else carries dragon fruit in Maryland? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it available! Also known as Pitaya, dragon fruit is mostly found in Southeast Asia, Mexico, Central and South America, and Israel. I think it’s also grown [...]

Low-FODMAP Style Stuffed-Pepper Soup

LowFODMAP Style Stuffed Pepper Soup
Staying away from high-FODMAP foods is a challenge to say the least! I’m slowly figuring things out, but I feel like my vegetable consumption has tanked as all my favorites are on the list. Well, all my favorites except bell peppers! I had this idea for a stuffed pepper stew of sorts for some time, hoping it would be a one-pot meal I could actually get the family on board with. They were unimpressed. Not bad… yada yada…  I’ll say it [...]

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie
If you read my journal you may know I’m going through some dietary changes as I figure out what my food sensitivities are. It’s really throwing me for a loop as it seems some of my favorite healthy vegetables may be causing my stomach distress, which is causing me cooking distress! When I look in the pantry or fridge, all I see are foods I should be staying away from at the moment. It’s depressing. So yesterday I decided to look through my IBS books and [...]

Man Down!

The Kid and I were struck down by a major cold! Good thing it was right after our trip to Vegas, but dang, it is hard to be on track when you are sick, and all you want are homey yummy food.

Vegas was almost completely on track, with the exception of exercise, however I averaged 18,000 steps so I figured that I was OK with that. I also split meals with The Kid, who is 9. The kid meals are smallish for him, and a split meal is perfect.  I also talked my husband out going…


Setting goals

Posted by Paula on January 27, 2015 at 11:20pm 1 Comment

I realize that I must have goals in order to be more positive. I want to keep moving forward instead of what I feel like I am just standing still. I must set short term & long term. I realize they must be specific.So for this week I am setting a small goal which is to up my water consumption.

- Drink 1 glass of water while preparing dinner.

This should be easy and I have done this yesterday & today so following through should be a breeze. I need to get cracking on… Continue

I am approaching the three week mark of being cigarette free! I decided to get my butt moving with the help of a trendy little fitness tracker called the UP by Jawbone. With its help, I have been able to log an average of 11,000 steps every day for the last week. I am very proud of myself and, also, very sore! Today was, by far, the hardest. I am starting to drag a bit. I need more sleep, I think. Next week I will work on my sleep patterns. This week, I made it to the gym, ran stairs every…


Rest Day: not rested...

Posted by Ovelia19 on January 27, 2015 at 9:30pm 1 Comment

So my alarm went off this morning and I tried convincing myself that it's supposed to be a rest day so why not actually make it one, even though I know that I really need to get in strength training because it'll help in the long run. So I went back to sleep. I did walk our 2 miles at work and I had in all 10k of my steps by the time I was off work. But I bugged myself all day long about being lazy and skipping on my strength training and harassed myself until I got off my ass and went to…


Time to get back to it!

So glad I found this blog again after... well about three years hahaha. I was cleaning out the inbox of my old email address and there it was!! Time to get back on track. My best friend's wedding is coming May 2016, and I am due to deliver my second baby this August 2015!!

We Got SNOW!!!

I don't think we are going to be shoveled out until SPRING!!!

All that aside, I worked from home today and the husband and kiddos had a jammie day.  I am still not loving the job but it's serving it's purpose for now.  Guess that is all I can ask for!


Tracking Troubles

Posted by Chantelle on January 26, 2015 at 11:45pm 4 Comments

I'm finding it hard to get myself to track food consistently. Sometimes its inconvenient to find the nutritional value for a food item.. Its fine when I eat my homemade meals, but only if I made them. My boyfriend cooks most nights and its hard to estimate how much olive oil/ meat/ cheese/ etc. he puts in the food. So I have been getting lazy and just not going through the trouble of finding out and tracking. Also anything I eat from a restaurant is the same trouble. Does anyone have any… Continue

day one a go

Posted by Ovelia19 on January 26, 2015 at 8:00pm 1 Comment

So I started training officially today did pretty good. I swam and ran this morning. Swimming went well but I felt gypped. I'm used to swimming for an hour the training plan had me swim for 15 min so I didn't really feel like I got a good swim in. But I did what I was supposed to. Then I ran for 20 min didn't go as awesome as it could have. I've definitely done better. But all and all I was satisfied. I'm still sore from yesterday so an easy day was good. Tomorrow is my "rest" day so I'm…


Then and Now

Posted by Christy on January 25, 2015 at 3:52pm 1 Comment

This pregnancy has been a lot different than the last. Partly due to having much better medicine early on when I was feeling so sick, and partly because I have kept a focus on eating healthy and exercising up until this point. Oh yeah, and I started out in much better shape too. In fact, I still weigh less now at almost 33 weeks than I did when I found out I was pregnant with my son. I hoping this means that my recovery will be much different too. As time gets closer I think more and more…
