Magical Sweet Potato & Sausage Quinoa Bake

Image Magical-Sweet-Potato-and-Sausage-Quinoa-Bake.jpg

I decided to add the word magical to this recipe title because I truly believe that it is. One of my employees recommended this recipe to me this week and while I usually trust her recommendations, the idea of kale, sweet potato, and quinoa just seemed a little too whole foodsy for me.  Yep, I just made whole foods an adjective.  It’s fine.  Just the same, we don’t share recipes that often on the job so I knew there had to be … [Read more...]

Image spinach-feta-and-egg-white-wrap-recipe-534x800_thumb.jpg

I’m obsessed with the Starbucks Spinach, Feta and Egg White Wrap but it’s not super convenient to go there all the time. So I made a homemade version that might actually be a little better! Plus I can save money and make it healthier or add tons of Sriracha – something seriously lacking at the Starbucks condiment bar… (Posted on Run Eat Repeat’s Instagram – check it out for comments.) Starbucks Egg White and Feta Wraps … [Read more...]

Hi friends! How are you? I hope your morning is going well. Yesterday was a weird day.

Surviving the Crazy Mornings

Image quaker.jpg

This post is sponsored by my friends at The Quaker Oats Company. It’s hard to believe that summer is ending, and we’re headed back in to the school year hustle. Liv is starting KINDERGARTEN (hold me), and long gone are the slow mornings of hanging out in our jammies until 11am before wandering to the pool or park. We definitely lived up summer to its fullest, and I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for the busy mornings ahead. The three of us … [Read more...]

Blueberry Pie Oat Cookie – Easy No Bake Overnight Recipe

Image blueberry-pie-breakfast-oat-cookie-1_thumb.jpg

This Overnight Oats recipe is different from the usual oats soaked in yogurt or nut milk… This packs sweetened oats it into a cake / cookie crust so it’s thick and chewy. Then, top it with blueberries so it’s like pie. The best part is it’s ‘overnight’ or ‘no-bake’ so it’s a piece of cake to make (or pie, piece of pie…). Hi! It’s National Blueberry Pie Day! And while I don’t consider pie dessert (I have a strict policy on that = “It must have … [Read more...]

Chocolate acai protein bowl

I made you lunch. Or breakfast. Or a late-night snack. In the world of things that make zero sense, I’ve been craving cold foods lately. Nothing like scraping ice off your windshield and breathing hot air into your hands to make you think, “Mmm, I could go for a SMOOTHIE right now.” I also really want another spray tan… even though my golden glow will be covered in Patagonia jackets and beanies.
