Wow, winter weather really seemed to stick around for quite awhile this year here in Franklin, TN. I am excited because it is finally May, the sun is shining and the 10-day weather forecast looks pretty close to perfect! Now that the warm weather has come back and looks like it is here to stay, there are so many activities I am looking forward to doing in the area. I am a planner so I am always thinking ahead. I definitely have a list of all the things I want to do now that we can actually enjoy being outside again.
As always, running is on my daily list (although I ran throughout the winter too and really did enjoy that as well). There are several things to consider when running in warm weather that I want to cover to help fellow runners make the (usually sudden) adjustment and/or get started now that it is warming up.
Now that the days are longer and the weather is enjoyable, get active, get outside and enjoy this spring and summer to the fullest!!!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
