Double Dose

31Aug11

Hello, dear readers! Yesterday, I took a trip to Berkeley with my friend Carina (who I’ve known for 15 years!) & then decided to stay at her house reminiscing about the good old days of our youth.

Nope, I’m not 21 yet, but my fam bam is. Happy anniversary, Mom & Dad! 🙂 I started the day off with the usual post-run smoothie. kale, banana, soymilk, almond butter, cacao powder & dates. As a runner, the importance iron has always been pushed on me. However, I’d MUCH rather get my iron from chocolate […]


So you know I love Kris Carr. After lurking her site quite a bit, I finally bought and quickly read her book, Crazy Sexy Diet. I’m not sure any future diet will ever be able to top that name. Doesn’t it just make you want to get up and do something awesome?! It’s full of positive […]
