Fast food….

and no drive-thru required?  Yes!

As the Mom of two active and always-eating-teenage boys…..I know it can be a challenge (for many) when it comes to preparing: simple, nutritious and delicious grab-and-go-grub.

If you’re suffering from: “What the heck do I make for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack syndrome” I’ve got you covered with healthy meals and snacks made with peanuts and peanut butter!

Why?  Peanuts and peanut butter are loaded with plant protein, fibre and heart healthy fats.

Did you know?  Peanuts have more protein than any other nut and are an excellent source of magnesium, niacin, and Vitamin E.

The following recipes are simple to prepare, healthy and taste delicious.  No drive-thru required!

What She Said Radio – My Weight Loss Story

Happy 2017!!

I recently had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the fabulous ladies (well, Christine Bentley – Kate was off onWSS pic a well deserved vacation!) of What She Said and sharing my weight loss story.  My #1 goal when sharing this story – is to inspire.  It’s been almost 14 years since I took those first steps – and truthfully, I still pinch myself.  Never in a zillion years…..would the once 200 lbs plus me, believe that one day I’d: complete a half Ironman, countless half & full marathons, write for Running Room Magazine or share my story with an audience(s).  Those first steps, literally change my life.  If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again…and again…and again: “If I can do it, YOU can too!!”.

Click here for a list of my top 3 tips for losing weight….

and keeping it off (*and for the record: cake, pizza & wine are included!!).

Wishing you all a happy & healthy 2017!
