Five veggies to love this summer

by MCM Mama on May 21, 2015

I love veggies. LOVE.THEM. I have never been one to not eat my veggies. (All of my healthy eating issues stem from the snacks I eat after my veggies LOL.) My parents tell me that when I was little, they’d serve themselves the vegetable at dinner and not give me any. Then when I’d ask, they’d tell me that those were only for adults, but that I could have some if I’d promise to eat them.

Obviously, I was a gullible child. But it worked. I like almost every vegetable now. Except beets. I’ve never met a beet I like. (And believe me, I’ve tried every way imaginable to eat them. Apparently if you say that you don’t like them, everyone will insist that their recipe makes beets awesome. No. No it does not.)

Back to reality

You know how you spend time training and planning for something big and then it’s done and you are left coping with nothing on the horizon and feeling sort of deflated. Yeah, I have that post-high letdown going on. Two marathons, Ragnar, a 20th anniversary trip, and a fun party with friends filled the last […]

May 13, 2015

We all know I love the half marathon distance (guess that’s why I’ve done 39 of them LOL). It’s a challenge, but it’s a distance that’s manageable to train for with a busy life. But really, is it just “half”? No!
