Not sure if it's just me or what, but I am getting nervous about the impending holiday season. I love to bake-- I deliver baked goods to neighbors, teachers, friends, and relatives every year, but, hey, a lot (maybe the majority!) stays here in our house. If I don't plan ahead and have a strategy, I will just bake my old standards, which have a whole lot of junk in them.
This year I've made it my mission to keep my ingredients whole and healthier. Do not confuse this with low calorie-- many … [Read More...]
Although I do not consider myself a vegan, I primarily eat vegan and vegetarian meals. I'm just not that into meat, unless I know it's free range, grass fed, and/or organic. I guess I just can't get over the way the USA processes their meat. More and more, I care about animal welfare as well as the welfare of my family. The more educated I become, the more I am aware of how what we put into our bodies affects our overall well being.
The problem is it seems like the only thing my kids will eat … [Read More...]
On November 7, 2014 my husband Rob McClellan retired from the US Navy after faithfully serving our country for 20 years. I, along with my children were some of his guest speakers.

Although I wrote this for Rob, this message is true for most military families. This is for you. There are no words great … [Read More...]

I run over a hundred miles a month and run in everything from trail to racing flats. I do however, know that I am shoe lover, and am someone who enjoys researching the latest technology in foot wear. I first started running, I would … [Read More...]

I think it's safe to say that we all get in a rut from time to time. Perhaps we have something major happening in our lives, maybe we're just burned out from the overwhelming sense of "have to's" associated with modern life. Some of us are frozen by the thought that we need to be perfect at everything we do, and others are … [Read More...]
I don't know too many people who loved running the first go around. For most, it takes several weeks, even months, before finding the "joy" in running. It's a process. I would imagine if you're just starting the sport you may be a little perplexed by all of the posters and quotes about how glorious running is, and even more baffled why so many people would "share" and "like" those banners.
You see, running is a lot like wine. How many people do you know who loved their first sip of wine? I … [Read More...]
