Fit Foodie: Mushroom Cap Pizzas

Mushroom Cap Pizza I used the below recipe for the larger portobello mushroom caps to make personal sized pizza.  The hubby is not a big fan of mushrooms but he found these to be delicious!  Some of what I added…  Oregano Garlic Olive oil spray on the tops before baking Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Here we go!

It’s go time.  I have done all that I can do to prepare.  I have put in the training hours.  The blood.  The sweat.  The tears.  I have broke down and built back up.  Now there’s only one thing left.  Do the dang thing. As I was working on transitions in the driveway, I began […]

Fit Foodie: Gnocchi <3 <3 <3

GARLIC “GNOCCHI” https://theprimitivepalate.com/2015/01/25/keto-garlic-gnocchi/ I MISS PASTA!  The fight on that is so very real.  I grew up in a house that had fresh rolled spaghetti laying out on the extra twin bed.  My grandma had sauce cooking.  My pop pop would make these lemon chicken cutlets.  OH HOW I MISS ALL OF THAT!  Now being […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Growing 

Training has been difficult this time around, but I am constantly reminding myself that is it is simply because all of this is new to me!  Sure, I can swim and bike but I could also technically run before I started couch 2 5K years ago too.  Now I am working on learning two in […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Overcoming Fear

  The good, bad and the ugly about pushing passed fears… You’re growing!  You’re terrified!  You’re sure you look out of place and are crazy self conscious.  That pretty much sums up the last seven weeks of triathlon training.  Thankfully I have a super knowledgeable and kind coach (IG @theunbreakableangel)  that is spoon feeding me […]

Fit Foodie: Finding my favs

One of the hardest parts of switching your way of eating is finding recipes that you can gladly opt for.  Not the recipes that are just okay.  Just bland.  Just meh.  You need to find the recipes that you get excited to make and put on the menu plan.  Those are the things that keeps […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Can we take a minute? 

Can we?  Can we just take one minute to say hello to abdominal lines?  They have been sporadically visiting me for the last 2 months while on the ketogenic diet but for the last week… Things have been getting pretty serious!   I will admit that part of me still cringes posting pictures like this. […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Go harder

Lately I have been wrestling around with some ideas and plans for the present/future.  I am entering a point that I feel like I’ve done a lot that I have set out to do, so what now?  Time to pull in and write it all down.  Brainstorm all that there is left to do.  What […]
