In Which Jenn Barely Makes Protein Pancakes (And They Suck)

Let’s see, what’s the phrase I’m looking for? EPIC FAIL. Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. As part of my race packet for the Annapolis Run for the Light House, I received a packet of protein powder. It seemed to go over well post-run, so I bought myself a big ol’ tub of it at Target; different brand but same flavor. Well, that worked fine for awhile in my smoothies, but after awhile I just got SO SICK of that cloying vanilla taste. Bleh. By consequence I have been on the hunt for...

Soup of the Evening, Beautiful Soup!

Who for such dainties would not stoop? … Wait, was the Mock Turtle even in the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland? He was, right? Yes? No? I can’t remember. Fail. But whatever; today I’m talking soup. It is simple. It is so simple, you don’t make it so much as assemble it. It makes a great work lunch and is infinitely customizable. The ingredients could be described as “things you like.” And while it is as delicious as you want it to be, it is also as healthy as you want it to be! I’ll walk you through...

Awww, I kid, I kid – I’ve read about some positive experiences too, so I’m prepared...

In Which Jenn & Moon & Minx & Ruffian & Hoodoo Try Energy Bits

Hi there! Jenn here. A little backstory: a few weeks ago I randomly tweeted to our scores and scores of devoted followers that we had never used any kind of energy gels or beans or what have you, and did anyone having suggestions? Why, Sasha Bratt did – Energy Bits are the thing, said he! They’re made with algae, totally natural and great for you. And then Energy Bits themselves tweeted back – seriously, this Twitter team is ON TOP OF IT – offering samples for review. Which we accepted because it sounds awesome and also because OMG SAMPLES...

In Which Moon Touches On Restrictive Dieting

We’ll periodically be putting up solo posts from one or the other of us, just to keep the format fresh. And you know, for funsies. Today Moon tackles a topic that has great meaning to us both… Restrictive diets: say no. Let’s talk a little about nutrition and diet. Most of the “diets” I have experienced have been extremely restrictive. So, in other words, they are not diets, but more like a blacklist for your stomach. I would like to take a different approach. How about we not create a diet based on what to restrict from our bodies,...
