One of my favorite, local, SoCal races, is the Jet Blue Long Beach Marathon! There are a few different race options available during this race weekend, including the half marathon distance, 5k, 20 mile bike ride, and 20 mile bike ride/half marathon combo! The last two years, I’ve run the marathon, which is definitely not […]

How to Roast Garlic! It’s So Simple and Delicious!

I don’t know why it took me so long (37 years) to roast my own garlic, but now I’m going to constantly have roasted bulbs in my fridge! It’s seriously so easy, and it adds a beautiful depth of flavor to whatever you incorporate it to! I followed this recipe, and seriously, my bulbs came […]

Workin’ That Booooooty

As a runner, I didn’t think it was pertinent to work on my booty;  didn’t hitting the pavement almost daily do that work for me? It turns out that no, running alone is not enough. Strengthening your backside not only  lifts your booty, making it look and feel awesome, it also helps to prevent injuries […]

How to Get Tough Stains Outta Your Clothes and Mrs Meyer’s Appreciation

Did you know you can use a household all-purpose spray as a spot cleaner on your clothes? Spray on stains, let it sit at least an hour, and wash as normal! Working in kitchens, I’d always get cooking oil on my clothes and aprons, and Mrs Meyers took some of the gnarliest stains out. I’m […]

Race Recap: Rock’n Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon!

On October 28th, 2018 Mike and I  got our new personal worsts in the half marathon distance, and it was worth every minute! We ran the Halloween-themed Rock’n Roll Los Angeles half marathon, and decided to run in costume — Mike was a hot dog and I was a taco! We didn’t know if we […]

Product Review: Good Karma Unsweetened Flax Milk!

One of my new favorite things to do with Mike is scout out the local Grocery Outlet and 99 Cents Store Only before we head to the standard supermarket for our groceries. It’s like a treasure hunt — we find the best stuff! Recently we were able to stock up on Daiya cheese for $2.50 […]

Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup is Accidentally Vegan!

Mike is not usually one into sweets or dessert, so when he gets a craving, I am all about it! While in the supermarket one night, Mike decided he was in the mood for banana splits, and as a supportive girlfriend, I wanted to make this happen for me us him! I didn’t realize Hershey’s […]

Product Review: Trader Joe’s Peppermint Mocha Almond Creamer!

Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit more than when Starbucks releases their Peppermint Mocha and Trader Joe’s Peppermint Joe-Joe’s hit the the shelves! My favorite part of the holidays is seeing my family, but that generally doesn’t happen until Christmas Eve, and to keep myself from feeling like a complete grinch, I overindulge in […]

Recipe Review: Vegan Yack Attack’s Roasted Tomato Cauliflower Soup

You know what I’m not a huge fan of? Tomato soup — to me it’s like eating a bowl of marinara, I just don’t get it. What I am a huge fan of though are chunky tomato soups – add some veggies, beans, greens and I am all for it! Minestrone soup is one of […]

Race Recap: San Francisco Marathon 2018!

I had no plans to run San Francisco Marathon this year, or really, any time in the near future. SF Marathon was a bucket list race that I was intimidated by, with it’s hills, oh those steep, steep hills. I’m from the Bay Area, and lived in SF for about four years — I love […]

Jenny’s the Name, (Easy) Vegan Glamour is the Game!

I love vegan beauty products almost as much as I love food products and running! Sometimes I’m that runner with make-up on, because hey! My photo is being captured! Now,  I’m no Miss Miriam or Vegan Beauty Addict, but I can manage winged eyeliner, just don’t ask me about much else — contouring, what? There […]

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the YEAR! (Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s time!)

Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s are back on the shelves, and they are vegan! One year (2016), I stockpiled boxes, and found out the cookies have the ability to stay fresh until July. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!! (My bday is actually in July and I opened them for it.) How long can they stay perfect? I don’t […]

Non-Alcoholic Beer and Running Recovery!

Recently I decided to give non-alcoholic beer a shot, specifically O’Douls. I decided to pursue personal training, as in being a trainer (!!!!), which meant in my free time, I needed to be studying. The course was fast-paced, challenging, and required my full attention – I couldn’t be tired or unfocused. I love beer, but […]

Recipe Review: Logical Harmony’s Buffalo Cauliflower!

I love, love, love buffalo cauliflower! I mean, most people do, right? WHAT IS NOT TO LIKE? (Spicy ingredients, if you are half the members of my immediate family.) I remember when Logical Harmony’s Tashina Combs posted this recipe a few years back, but I never got around to making it. She and Justin used […]
