5 Plant Based Food Blogs

tumblr_n2ea8rC3z71qdxa23o1_1280Happy Friday!!! Today I'm linking up with Eat Pray Run DC, Mar on the Run and You Signed Up For What for the Friday Five link up. Today's theme is food and beverage, so I'm going to share with you some of my favorite plant based food blogs!

  1. Minimalist Baker - Dana creates some really good recipes and her photography is stunning.  I love that many of her recipes are less than 10 ingredients and under 30 minutes. I recently made the vegan nicoise salad... it was so good! The macaroni salad has become one of my summer staples. I'm looking forward to trying the roasted broccoli sweet potato chickpea salad.

  2. My Whole Food Life - Melissa has a great collection of recipes.  I love her overnight oats collection, particularly the almond butter chocolate and cookie dough.  Her recipe for coconut crème larabars is spot-on.  I made the carrot dogs for my Memorial Day cookout... they were life changing. I really think I need some of the tropical popsicles in my life right now.

  3. Keepin' it Kind - Kristy's site is full of interesting recipes and beautiful photography.  A lot of  her recipes are complex... not that they are difficult or hard, just that they have different components to them, so attempting them on a weeknight is difficult.  She has a lot of jackfruit recipes on her site.  My introduction to jackfruit was her jackfruit fish-free tacos... they were so very good! I can't wait to try her Banh Mi-Less Banh Mi Bowl!

  4. One Ingredient Chef - Andrew has an awesome collection of well thought out recipes.  His creamy tofu tortilla soup is so good and comforting... perfect for one of those dreary winter days! I feel the ultimate Superbowl Sunday food is his cheesy bbq potato skins - they are to die for! I'm about ready to go out and buy all the ingredients for the vegan rice krispy treats and make them!

  5. Contentedness Cooking - Florian has some very creative recipes... I love that so many of them have a few ingredients and 5 (or less steps).  Last night I tried his vegan cheese quesadillas, they were amazing and super quick! His olive hummus was really good too! The Thai green curry sandwich is one I'm going to have to try real soon!

2017 Chicago Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my second marathon... the Chicago Marathon. This is my 2017 Chicago Marathon Recap!

The week prior, the hubs decided he didn't want to go to Chicago... citing some pretty lame excuses.  I wasn't too worried about that as I am not afraid to travel on my own.

I flew into Chicago on Friday morning.  The plane from Houston seemed to be full of folks running in the marathon.  I sat by a young couple who were also running (his 1st marathon, her 7th).  After landing up in Chicago, I took the Orange Line into the city and checked into my hotel, then headed back out for some lunch and then to take in the Expo.
The Expo

The Expo was CRAZY! I retrieved my bib, shirt and wandered around for a bit.  I tried shopping in the Nike area, but after I was shoved a couple of times, I lost all interest.  With all the craziness, I decided I needed to find the Goose Island beer bus for a little sample.

I checked out several booths and then headed to the Runners World stage for the cour…

Brazos Bend 50k Recap

On April 7th, I ran my very first 50k at Brazos Bend 50.  The event was a Trail Racing Over Texas race located at Brazos Bend State Park outside of Needville, TX.  This is my Brazos Bend 50k recap.
I had gone into Houston after work to pick up my race packet ahead of time... along with my bib and race shirt, they also had bonus swag, for this race it was Altra Gaiters.  Race day-eve brought me a little visitor.... yup, Aunt Flo decided to come for a stay. This definitely put a little twist in my plans.  I took off work a little early so that I could get dinner at a reasonable hour, my clothes laid out, and to bed early.  My race-day eve fueling was my lucky veggie burger and sweet potato fries at Bella Green.

After some thought I decided to wear my hydration vest to carry necessary supplies instead of my handheld.  Once I got home, I laid out my clothes, got my supplies ready and headed to bed.  My wake-up call was 3am!

It was tough figuring out what to wear.  The forecast cal…

2018 Houston Marathon Recap

Last weekend I ran my third marathon... the Houston Marathon. This is my 2018 Houston Marathon Recap!

I ran the Houston Marathon last year, it was my very first marathon.  It was such a fun time, I signed up again as soon as early bird entry opened up.
ABB 5k
I chose to run the ABB 5k on the day before the marathon.  I figured since I had to be in Houston to pick up my packet, I might as well use it for my shakeout run.  The temps were mighty chilly that morning.  I bundled up and headed in early to pick up my packet.  After I dropped my bag (and jacket) off at the bag drop, I was very happy to see the convention center was open to wait in.

15 minutes prior to race start, I headed out to use the port-a-cans and line up.  I chose to line up with the 11 minute mile group in an attempt to keep my pace super easy.  They sang the Star Spangled Banner and we were off right on time!

I had to do a bit of bobbing and weaving as there were several walkers who lined up ahead of me.  Within a half mil…
