Training – May 2019

May’s training was all about learning! After an intentional heavy load of training near the end of April, there were fewer hours in my Training Peaks to start the month. But the learning really came from being more flexible and not being obsessed with green boxes in my Training Peaks. I kicked off the month […]

Lance’s Favorite Vegan Sauces

When I was considering going vegan, I knew the hardest part would be finding recipes and cooking methods that would replace our usual staples that included meat and/or dairy. I invested in cookbooks, and started looking up recipes online. After a few months, we’d learned […]

What can I say about IRONMAN Chattanooga 70.3? First of all, I loved it! It was a great course, the city was incredibly hospitable, and I got to share the weekend with friends and teammates. What more could a girl ask for? As for travelling, I drove up on Thursday (the race was on Sunday) […]

Vegan Dishes to Take to Parties

We’ve all been there – an occasion that calls for us to “bring a dish”. It could be Christmas or Thanksgiving, or get-togethers for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day. No matter the occasion, most of us vegans will be bringing a dish anyway just to make sure we have something to eat! […]

An Ode to Oats

I love oats! Since going plant-based in 2017, oats have become a staple in my pantry. They’re high in fiber, carbs, and protein, and you can get a whole tub of organic, gluten-free oats for a few dollars. Don’t let anyone tell you that eating healthy is too expensive! I use oats for breakfast, and […]

Training – March 2019

I can’t believe we’re three months into 2019 already! As a business owner, I’ve spent the last week looking at quarter 1 results and comparing them to 2018.
