Paleo soup a pleasant surprise

A few weeks ago, I sent out a request to all of you to send me your best soup recipes. After going through the first real cold snap, I realized that my soup recipe collection was woefully lacking on soups acceptable on the Paleo diet. Most of the soups I make are loaded with noodles, dumplings or beans, which I must confess, I thoroughly enjoy.

Eating less doesn’t mean losing more

This week was a hard one. I lost one more pound since last week's column (up to 22 of the 40 I set out to lose). With my pregnancy finally out of the closet, I can admit that my saving grace in sticking to the rules this week has been nausea. You would think that a persistent aversion to food would help boost the weight loss. However, eating less doesn't always mean losing more.

Adding back dairy to Paleo diet

After my first month of Paleo, I decided to add back some dairy products. Now, before anyone gets too excited, that means hard cheese, butter and cream. It also still means that when mixed with non-Paleo ingredients, they are still on the banned list, so, no ice cream. Of course, after this cold snap, who is really in the mood for that? But, I wonder if I can figure out a way to make Paleo powdered sugar ... I could go really go for a maple-walnut truffle.

Another wrinkle to the diet challenge

Another week down, and two more pounds lost. Thanksgiving presented a slight challenge when it came to sticking with the rules. As a refresher, my self-written rules are simply no seconds, no dessert, no soda, and no snacking. With cheese balls, cashews and snack trays (oh my!) displayed on every surface during the holidays, it can be hard to resist the temptation to constantly munch on the salty and sweet goodies that abound when we gather together. But the challenge was presented, and I'm proud to say that I passed the test with flying colors. I gravitated to the ...

Avoiding temptation takes planning

We have officially entered into the holiday season. You know, that time of year where every other day someone brings in a big tray of cookies or candy. Or they bring in that dessert they want to make a trial run at before the big party. Not only that, but you find yourself shopping during meal time and need a little pick me up to tide you over until you can eat a healthy dinner at home.

Thanksgiving no reason to cheat

Actions speak louder than words. Oh, how true that is. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, so many of us will have a "cheat day" and opt for the second helping of stuffing or an extra dollop of whipped cream on our pumpkin pie.

3 reasons running makes you better than her

It's too time-consuming. It's an exercise fad. I'm too old to start. My family will feel neglected. It's too cold; it's too hot. I'm slower than my toddler taking his first steps.

Need a way to help the miles pass by? Here's some podcasts to listen to while running

Warmer weather means more running for me, and while I love a good solo run, my thoughts quickly become boring and obnoxious, even to myself. A better option? Podcasts. A great podcast keeps the mind engaged and distracted while the feet are busy and the legs are burning. It’s like having a conversation without having to do any work. Here are a few of my current favorites. Notice: Only a couple are running related.
