These are NACHO average times...
Let's TACO 'bout it!
Join us on Facebook Live on April 25th at 5pm (CDT) and let's make budget friendly tacos and guac while sippin' margs together!
We are keeping it pretty basic with the following ingredients, substitute as needed:
*tortillas (corn, whole wheat, gluten-free, whatever you prefer)
*ground meat (or beans)
*tequila or whatever alcohol you have on hand
Got questions or need ideas for substitutes? Contact me for more details or just comment while on Facebook Live!
Check out my latest Facebook post to set a reminder to watch and cook with us.
We will be cooking a simpler (quarantine) version of:

I have really been enjoying playing "Chopped" in the kitchen lately and pulling together different ingredients to see what I can make. This week I decided on using - chickpea pasta, nutritional yeast, mushrooms and bok choy. I couldn't be any happier with how it turned out! So filling, full off fiber, and high in protein YET it was as thick, "cheesy", and decadent as mac n' cheese. Even my meat and dairy loving husband enjoyed it! I promise you won't miss the meat, dairy OR gluten in this dish!
Total Time: 30 minutes

**Training Scavenger Hunt Contest + Coffee Prize
Exercise might feel a bit rough for some of you right now so for a little extra motivation we are going to take you on a scavenger hunt during your training to help you find joy in the journey!
"A MOMENT IS ALL IT TAKES,
TO BRING A FRESH SMILE,
MAKE A GORGEOUS DAY,
OR REINFORCE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE."
~Craig Margolius, SYPCOFFEE Founder
SYPCOFFEE runs off the realization that every moment really does matter and they have so graciously offered to gift one bag of 'carefully roasted specialty coffee, beautifully packaged and personalized' to the winner of the scavenger hunt!
Throughout the next few weeks during your training runs/walks be on the lookout for something in each of these categories to help brighten your day:
Take a picture of as many of these items as you can during your training runs/walks and post your favorites (please just 1 per category) in the Facebook Event. Each category submitted for counts as 1 entry to the contest (up to 6 entries per person). On race day, one winner will be drawn from all of the entries and announced via Facebook!
When DOESN'T coffee help make your day better? If you aren't selected as the winner, maybe this could be your gift to yourself for finishing the race! ;)
Williamson County is overflowing with beautiful local paths, trails and parks to help keep you active in your own "backyard". I have listed some of my favorites below and there are still SO many more I haven't reviewed yet. I will also include those in each list - I'm sure I'm still leaving a bunch out. I recommend downloading the AllTrails app to search for trails close to you, it is easy to use and super helpful! I have also include the Blueways (or canoe drops/fishing areas) at the end.
*As I am posting this we are on Stay-at-Home order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is important to know that you CAN still get outdoors and exercise BUT it is better to stay around where you live, don't go somewhere if it is crowded, keep your distance (at least 6ft) from others as you pass them, stay only with your household members, don't congregate, and try not to touch anything or play on playgrounds and as always, wash your hands. There also might be some parks that are closed. If all else fails, it is so nice just to walk around your neighborhood too!
I am a food loving, activity seeking health coach who resides in Franklin, TN with my husband and two sweet dogs (Lola & Penny).
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.
