They say a way to man’s heart is through his stomach. I agree with that statement whole stomachly. However, there are different routes you can use to get there. I, for one, know that I want to create meals that fill him up, but also won’t fill out my ass as much as it fills up his heart. That means putting together “secretly” healthy dishes that don’t taste like wheatgrass on top of hay. That route is called the scenic route… he’s happy and unknowingly healthy.

Friends with Benefits (FWB), it never really works out. The only time it works out for you is when it’s not working out for the other person. I mean, let’s be honest with one another, when you’re involved with a FWB sitch, someone usually catches that strange emotion… “like” and tricks them self into thinking that these little rendezvous are really the other party showing their feelings in a private way. However, the other party is usually just biding their time until someone worth paying for/cooking dinner for and claiming as their one-and-only comes along. I’ve been on both ends; I’ve been the one with all that “like” happening and I’ve been the one biding my time and waiting for my… Adam. Continue reading “Kale: Your Friend with Benefits”

I’m baacccccckkk! Sorry I’ve been the worst, but I was on a whirlwind tour of the east coast for a couple work stops (in DC and NYC) and a wedding in Charleston, SC for my step brother’s wedding. Since I’ve been so out of touch, I feel like the only way to make it up to you is to offer you some inspiration with a side of free stuff!

It’s official, I’m the last one standing in this house. Adam is one cough away from losing a lung, Rondo has something going on with his sweet little eyes and you know all about The Gidge’s recent brush with pancreatitis. Gidget Watch 2013 Update: she’s home now, thank goodness! Resting, eating chicken and rice only for the next month (I think that was her plan all along), and on the road to recovery. The one silver lining in all this is that they had to shave her leg to give her an IV and now she looks like she either has a wooden peg leg or got attacked by a mini shark.

Today called for a family favorite for dinner. It was a tough one, Gidget had to go to the emergency room and we found out she has pancreatitis. Poor little thing is staying overnight at the hospital. And, let me tell ya, that’s like staying at the Four Seasons… in the penthouse suite. For that price I can only hope that she is getting champagne pumped into her with her fluids. If you don’t have a pet, the things we do for our pets makes us sound like crazy people. But, when you have one, you are absolutely aware of your pet on-set insanity and you don’t apologize for it one bit. My non-pet-owning bank account thinks I’m crazy. And I agree.

One of the biggest obstacles I used to run into when I tried to make creative dinners with lots of fresh ingredients, was the price of groceries. Each day I’d figure out what I wanted to make and then I’d shop for that night’s ingredients. We would eat at 9 PM every night by the time I got back from work, working out, grocery shopping and cooking. While it sounds really elementary, my dear Watson, I’ve learned to plan our dinners for the week on Sunday night (post Breaking Bad, obvi). Continue reading “How Meal Planning = New Lululemon Pants”

Last week I only made it to the gym two times and I gotta say, it had a little something to do with having Monday off and not getting my week started on the right foot with a good work-out on Monday. (Have you been trying the Monday Rule?) Today, I was excited to get back into it. As much as I feel guilty when I don’t make it to the gym 4-5 times a week, it really is nice when you get that “absence makes the heart grow fonder” feeling and you’re pumped to be back.

I think I’m ready to take this relationship to the next level. Are you? Well, I’d certainly hope so after all our sharing.
Lemons & Lunges is a global phenomenon. Well maybe that’s a stretch (it’d be a lot cooler if it wassss), BUT if you want to connect on Facebook, Twitter Instagram, and Pinterest (where I get LOTS of healthy recipe ideas and have a certifiable addiction), I’ve included links to all below. Let’s get social! Pretty links after the jump Continue reading “Feel Good Friday: Let’s Get Social”

It’s funny how your life and priorities change as you get older. How you become what your high school self would consider the LAMEST person EVER. And how you just love every minute of it. When I was in high school, the moment any friend’s parents were going to be out of the house for longer than 4 hours we were concocting a plan to have a party and have every person we’ve ever know be there to enjoy some Beast Ice and Boone’s Farm (if you know, you know) in a basement or garage. Now, I won’t even answer the door if you come over unannounced. I mean I will, but I won’t like it.
Now, my “social hour” is during boot camp (I do have friends… right guys?? Are you out there?? But during the week, it’s me being lamer than your Grandma.) As much as I love creating and finding fun recipes, sometimes there’e something to be said for letting your food have a little “alone time” of its own and just letting the main ingredients sing. The summer provides so many naturally flavorful fruits and veggies – I try to take advantage of that as much as possible. Tonight, I let my dinner components stay home from the ingredient party and kept it really simple. This is the kind of clean eating that gives you no excuses – it’s simple, low carb and will make your body feel great.
Tonight we dug into Grilled Lemon Pepper Salmon on a bed of sauteed garlic spinach with heirloom tomatoes on the side.
