Is half a thinga jicama a balanced meal? What if I add chile salt? Because that’s what’s going down for breakfast this morning, and since I’m too cheap for therapy, I’m turning to you guys to ask if an intervention is in order. Yesterday it was green juice and pork rinds. No, not for breakfast, who do you think I — yes, 100% completely for breakfast. I mean you can totally drink away chicharrones with parsley juice, yeah? That’s what I thought. So we’re cool then. Healthy as a horse. Thanks guys.
Speaking of health (they call me DJ PiggySmooth), I put together a fun little post for Full Circle this week on How to Eat Healthy When You’re on Vacation. I realize how backwards it is that I’m making health recommendations in the same breath as admitting a Mexican root vegetable addiction, but I know you guys will cut me some slack. Featuring a few sneaky moves that my Momma and I employed during last year’s most epic road trip of Southern eats — plus some good old fashioned common sense — there are a total of 15 tips that’ll help keep things (read: your diet, pooping, all that good stuff) reasonably in check when you’re on the road. That snazzster graphic below offers a super quick snapshot, but be sure to visit Full Circle’s Good Food Life blog for the full deets on each tip.
WARNING: This is kind of a long, schizo post. I’d love for you to follow the storyline from soup to nuts, but if you just want the low-down on the review, skip to the middle. If you’re jonesing for oats, skip to the end. I don’t know why it took me so damn long to … Continue reading
A few weeks ago, Chris presented me with a challenge: to create an energy snack he could take along on road and mountain bike rides that wasn’t full of weird, carby fillers or dried milk products. That wasn’t as simple as a fruit and nut bar (dammit, but those are going off like rockets right nuuuur!). … Continue reading
Earlier this summer I turned 30. I think we talked about it. In fact, I’m pretty sure I promised you at least a post or two recapping all the celebrating (read: championship face-stuffing) we did in New York. This. IsNotOneOfThosePosts. No, sadly for you, this post is a little whinier. Don’t act surprised. Or maybe … Continue reading
So yesterday I kind of hinted at something. Or maybe admission of not having bacon in my refrigerator is more than a hint. The hubs and I are going healthy. Ish. Nothing drastic, people, don’t worry. No one is sick or dying or pregnant. We just want to challenge ourselves to put higher-nutrition content into our bodies, … Continue reading
Hi friends. This Sunday, having completed one of the longest (if not the fastest) runs in my short career as a wannabe jogger, I thought I’d take a break from food for a moment to talk about something that is so closely associated with food, sad as it may be: fitness. More specifically, I know … Continue reading
Happy Friday, world! Lots in the hopper here at the P&Q and no real rhyme or reason (yet) as to how I will manage the queue. Fellow bloggers, please tell me: how do you do it? Enter my attempted solution, the Pigpen: a mini-roundup of the promised miscellany that’s been bouncing around in the ol’ … Continue reading
