Steamy Mug of Fluid Time and the 2nd Half of Labor Day Weekend

Life… wonderful, colorful, funfilled, painful, tasty

Yesterday began after 9.5 hours of beautiful uninterrupted sleep brought to me by NyQuil. I don’t have a cold, but I don’t sleep well and I knew that after that 24 mile run, I could use some real rest. So … Continue reading

Get Some Sleep!

For those who read Runner’s World, you probably read the article in May’s issue called “Go to Sleep Already” by Cindy Kuzma. I literally just read the article today, only a month late… I even took a highlighter and marked … Continue reading

Paleo Taco Salad

According to the meal plan, tonight was Mexican night and we were rather thrilled that I happened to pick something rather simple.  I have no idea where I found it and usually try desperately to hold onto links for reference… FAIL. However, this dish was not a failure. I suggest you give it a go! PS the photo is totally stolen. It’s similar in looks except the tomatoes are IN my guacamole. 🙂


For the Guacamole
2 Avocados
2 Tomatoes (med sized)
sea salt
1/2 red onion
2-3T lime juice

For the Salad
1lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 orange bell pepper, chopped
1T chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin

salt and pepper

fresh salsa

1. Start by making the guacamole. Chop tomato, onion, and avocados and place together in a bowl. Now add sea salt and mix.
2. Start sauteing onion, beef, and bell pepper together in a little olive oil. Season. Cook until browned
3. Layer lettuce, meat, guacamole, and salsa on a plate… enjoy…

NOTES: Personally, if you like bell pepper, go ahead and throw another one in yellow or red… possibly even two.  Feel free to add a little jalapeno or some cayenne pepper if you like a bite! This was DELICIOUS!
