In Which Jenn Invents A WDW-Inspired Smoothie Recipe

I am always impressed by the industrious bloggers who are constantly coming up with their own unique recipes. Even the smoothies are themed – strawberry cheesecake smoothies! Pumpkin pie smoothies! THE ULTIMATE GREEN SMOOTHIE RAAAAAAAAR!!! Me, I was just trying to put together a high-protein smoothie to drink after my morning runs that kept me full until lunch and tasted okay. By some miracle, I did that. But then I got greedy. I thought, how come I can’t put together a fancy-pants smoothie with a legit flavor profile? Why can’t I theme it to Disney??? And so I did. Fire...

In Which Jenn Reviews Another Influenster Vox Box

Hey, remember that time I got an Influenster Vox Box? I guess they value truthiness after all – I got another for review. More unbridled honesty ahead!

Plan B is still a good one. Know when to cede to Plan...

In Which Jenn Makes a Tropical Green Smoothie

First, I should point out that in no way to Chobani pay, bribe, coerce, or employ shady business practices so that I would write this post.

In Which Jenn & Moon Discuss Pre- & Post-Run Snacks & Jenn Uses Her Car as an Oven

JENN: So, running fuel snacks. They’re important, one way or another. There are three categories: pre-run, mid-run, and post-run snacks. I’m ignoring mid-run snacks because I’ll have a blog post about that next week, but for today I’d like to start with pre-run snacks – Moon has her own take on this! MOON: Pre-run snacking = >:(. I hate eating before a run. So… I’m a little useless for this topic, but I never eat before I run. JENN: Regardless of length, regardless of time? MOON: Yes. For long runs I sometimes cave and eat something in the event...
