Tasty Tuesday - Recipe Round Up

While I don't have a new recipe to share, I've been pinning plenty of them that have caught my eye or made me hungry. I thought I would share those with you.

What recipes have you been checking out lately? Have you made any of these?

Laura at Mommy Run Fast posted this fantastic looking Warm Lentil and Wheatberry Salad with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apple recipe. I love wheatberries and the combination of the apples and sweet potatoes. So this one called out my name.


Amanda at Run to The Finish shared this tasty sounding recipe for this Slow Cooker BBQ Tofu and Slaw. Might not be pretty, but sometimes the best tasting dishes are those that look the worst. Though, this one doesn't look all that bad to me!



Heather at Better With Veggies posted this fantastic recipe for Vegan Kale Sausage Balls. Being a huge fan of kale, this one caught my eye.


Averie at Averie Cooks always has some amazing looking recipes. This is one I pinned a while back (Orange Ginger Tempeh and Brown Rice Salad with Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette) and need to make ASAP - along with one of her fantastic sounding bread recipes.


Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean reminded me that it's been way too long since I've made socca - really need to try out this recipe for this Sweet Potato Socca Crust.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym"
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently.

I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience. 

Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is rat…
