Well well, it’s July 8 & I’m here to give you an update.

I haven’t posted in a couple of months because, as I say, “life got in the way”!  As you know, my son had a bar mitzvah in March, had a wedding, 3 graduations, trips to Puerto Rico & Maryland, and life was simply busy from then on.  We moved this summer to a new home, in a near by town (only 3 miles away), so to say I’ve been busy is quite the understatement.  Now that life is settling, I’m happy to be back writing & back to my routine.

As this blog is called Healthy Running Mom, let me tell you about about that piece!  Hmmm.  Healthy, not as much as usual.  Running, not as much as usual.  As much as I do my best to eat healthy & avoid the “poison”, it’s been difficult for me throught all of life’s events.  I can’t even tell you all of the things that I’ve eaten that I hadn’t in such a long time.  My husband often says, I don’t even know who you are anymore.  He’s found me eating potato chips, licorice, pizza, I was indulging in bread products, which I have avoided for so long.  Well, it was a fun run, but I must tell you that it has truly affected my “everything”.  I was more sluggish & dired often.  My skin was also showing signs of this disruption in my regular routine.  Well, I’m happy to say that those are no longer daily occurrences for me.  I feel so much better when I have food prepared & eat my “typical” healthy foods.  I simply wasn’t going to the produce store every few days & preparing foods, so I’d grab whatever was nearby.  Well, that is changing people!

I think all of this change started because I’ve been so frustrated about running.  My feet are the culprit!  I”ll spare you from pictures of my feet!  But, I have some rather large & unsightly bunions which have been causing much discomfort over the past few months making runs a bit difficult.  I’ve been going to see my podiatrist for “fixes” every 3 weeks & at each visit, he asks, “have you made an appointment with a surgeon?”.  The model of the Brooks running shoes I was wearing for years changed.  I HATE THAT!  So, I tried 4 different pairs of running shoes.  I finally found a pair that are “alright”!  Not great, but they work.  It’s really not the shoes, it’s my feet!  So, I run when it feels good, walk when running doesn’t work & have found that as long as I’m getting in some movement, it’s better than nothing at all!  It is sad for me b/c I’m a hot girl runner & love running in the heat!  Well, this summer has certainly not yet been hot & I have not been piling on the miles either.  So, I’ll take it as it comes.  Will find a convenient time to have the surgery & then hopefully that’ll cure my future running issues.  But, until then, I’ll take it day by day & be happy for the good days that I have running!

As far as recipes, which I’ve been so remiss to share, here are an awesome one for you!  I was sent Heart Healthy Honey Bunches of Oats cereal to try with the following recipe & I have to tell you that it’s worth making!  They are delicious!

imagegen.ashx  Well well, its July 8 & Im here to give you an update.

Crunchy Sweet Potato Fries with Harissa Aioli

Ingredients

1 cup crushed Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted cereal

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

2 large egg whites

4 small sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), scrubbed and sliced lengthwise – about 1 inch wide

1/2 cup prepared mayonnaise

1 Tablespoon red harissa (or to taste)

Garnish:  chopped cilantro

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and then set aside.

In a food processor crush cereal until it measures 1 cup.  Combine ground cereal with cumin and place is a shallow bowl.

In another shallow bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and pepper.

In a third shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg whites with 2 tablespoons of water until combined.

Dip the sweet potato first in the flour mixture, shaking off excess. Then dip each wedge into the egg white mixture until coated. Finally, dip the sweet potato in the cereal mixture, pressing the exposed surface of the potato into the cereal.  Transfer potato wedges onto the prepared baking sheet as you go.

Bake potatoes until tender and crisp, about 25 minutes, turning once.

While the potatoes are in the oven, combine the mayonnaise and harissa for the dip.  Add additional harissa if you prefer your aioli spicy.

When the potatoes are done, sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.  Serve warm with harissa aioli and sprinkled with chopped fresh cilantro.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

I was headed out the door to go to the gym this a.m. in the pouring rain.  Not complaining too much because I’m so happy spring is here.  However, I wasn’t even paying attention & stepped into a huge puddle.  My foot was soaking wet!  I went inside to change my shoes, socks & orthotics & lost my mojo to go to the gym.  EEEKKK!  So, now, here I am with a note for you about Cinco de Mayo!

Running makes me SO happy!

Well, as you know, I’m in Arizona.  Having a lovely visit with my aunt & I need to share that I had the BEST run ever!  I absolutely love running here.  Seriously, there are mountains, there is NO humidity & it’s absolutely spectacular!  I haven’t been running long, as it takes me a while to build back up from my 3-4-5 mile runs on the treadmilll & I like to take it nice & easy transitioning to outside so I don’t conjure up an injury.  Well, I’m feelin’ it again & can’t wait to continue to get my long runs going soon!  This has been a great jump start for me!

I just have to share!

I assure you, I will not share all of my summer runs with you, but this is a great start!  OOH, on with my day.

I also wanted to share some amazing pics I took on my run.

Those are just a couple.  Who wouldn’t want to run here?

Yesterday, we went kayaking in the Salt River.  Have you ever heard of it pouring here?  OY, it was such an adventure.  We were on a 4 hour guided kayak ride & for about 3 of the hours, it was pouring & freezing.  It would have been really spectacular if we weren’t cold, the rain may even have felt good to all of us.  One of the women hit rock  & capsized, so she was really cold.  It was a definite adventure.  We all were so happy to get back into our tour van with the heat blasting!  I can just say it was an adventure!  I’d definitely like to experience that again in the HOT Arizona temps.

Well, gotta go.

What make you happy like running makes me?

Checking in from Arizona

HI All,

I wanted to post a brief hello from Arizona where it’s spectacular.  I’m here visiting my aunt.  I’m here with my aunt & cousin & having a girls visit.  It’s very different to without my kids.  It’s lots of girl time & not worrying about those little guys.  I had the greatest run yesterday.  OMG- I ran a spectacular 5 miles amongst the beautiful mountains in 72 temp. with very minimal sun & no humidity.  Can I tell you that I could have run forever, but needed to get home to begin our day.  *Of course something is wrong with my pics, they’re not uploading, so I’ll have to share those later.

30CleanLogowebsmall Checking in from Arizona

As you know, I’ve been on The 30 Clean for a couple weeks now & while away, I must say that it’s more challenging, but it’s still doable.  I packed my own food for the airport.  I’ve ordered very carefully while out & have brought some “clean” foods with me to make sure that I’ve got something & am not tempted to stray.  While, I haven’t been perfect, I’ve still kept it mostly clean.  You can too.

 Checking in from Arizona  Checking in from Arizona  Checking in from Arizona  Checking in from Arizona

Today is a morning of kayaking.  Hoping I’m able to upload my pics to be able to share with you ,as I’m sure the scenery is going to be spectacular.  We’re going for a 4 hour kayak adventure on the Salt River.  Wanted to do stand up paddleboarding, but they didn’t have an instructor available.  That would have been amazing!

Hope youre day is fantastic as well.  I’ll re-post again with more…..

Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

meatlessmonday Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

Well, I am all prepped & ready to go for another Clean 30!  I really need it this time.  I’ve let go of everything with Stone’s bar mitzvah & Passover.  Such a mess!  I did however keep my movement in tact.  Actually, for the last 10 days (I’ve been off work for the past week & 1/2), I’ve had well over 10,000 on my steps with my JawboneUP.  That is something that makes me happy because prior to the 10 days, I was ALL out of whack.  As much as I crave & thrive from structure, it’s so easy to deviate!  At least, that’s how it works for me!

30CleanLogowebsmall Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

So, today is day 1 of The 30 Clean.  Are any of you joining me?  I’m psyched b/c there’s now a v-clean (vegan & vegetarian) board for the 1st time & that’s where I’ll be for the next 30 days!

Anyway, of course I do best when I prepare & plan.  So, I did just that last night!

IMG 7675 300x225 Door to Door Organics review & Giveaway!

Sometimes I feel SO darn lucky.  Well, when I was contacted by Door to Door Organics to write a review I didn’t even need to think for a moment, I immediately said, “YES”!  If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit, you know I have ordered from them before.  They are a subscription service.  You can choose all veggies, all fruit or a combination.  You then choose the size box that works best for your household. You will then choose your frequency (once a week or every other week) along with your delivery day.

Every Friday, they’ll send you an email telling you what seasonal produce will arrive in your box. You have until noon the day prior to your delivery day to make five substitutions if you choose.  I love this part b/c as much as we like to eat a variety of foods in our house, there are certainly somethings that are not our favorites.  I love this option.  Not all other produce delivery boxes give you this option!  There are also a vairety of other items you can add:  dairy, meats, fish, additional produce, pantry items and prepared meals. There also have a bounty of recipes on the Kitchen section of the website. You can shop by recipe or simply search for ways to use a specific veggie or fruit.

So, I was asked to choose a box & also some grocery items & I gladly obliged!  As you know, I celebrate Passover & my box came just before the start of the holiday, so I was thrilled to choose produce for a recipe along with a few grocery items to complete my recipe. Of course, I needed romaine lettuce for my seder.  This box was a definite time saver for me!

I decided to make a quinoa salad.  I was able to order:  scallions, fresh dill, fresh parsley, cucumbers, red onion & red pepper from my Door to Door bitty box, along with quinoa & lemon juice from “pantry shop”.

Here’s the recipe:

Instructions
  1. Cover the 2 cups of quinoa with 4 cups of water in a saucepan, over high heat on the stove. Bring to a boil, then reduce the temperature and cover for 15 minutes, until the quinoa has absorbed all the water. Fluff with a fork, and allow to cool while you chop the vegetables and herbs.
  2. In the meantime, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, in a large bowl. Add the cooked quinoa, and toss in the dressing to coat well.
  3. Add in the minced scallions, red onion, chopped dill and parsley, chopped cucumber, chopped red pepper, and olives, tomatoes, and toss well to combine. Allow the mixture to marinate at least an hour before serving.

Update & Link Laces Giveaway Winners

I’ve been missing for so long, it’s hard for me to know where to begin today.

Well, there has been SO much going on with me & something had to give….  In February, my nephew got married.  Two weeks later, Stone had his appendix out & then 3 weeks later, he had his bar mitzvah!  He was amazing, did great & it was such an amazing expereience.  It was our 1st family bar mitzvah.  The weekend was filled with pride, emotion, entertaining & exhaustion!

Last week, we thought Nemo (our 6 yr old goldendoodle)  had cancer & was put through a battery of tests which showed she has osteoarthritis.  Such a relief!  We were told that she probably had bone cancer & I can’t even share what stress we had gone through for about a week with that terrible news.  Well, it was such a relief when we found out it was not cancer & is something that can be treated!

IMG 8082 225x300  Update & Link Laces Giveaway Winners

Well, with all of that happening, I had to take a blogging break.  I also took a break from lots of things.  My routine that I treasure went to hell.  My great eating habits went to hell & my exercise routine was out of whack.  When I have structure, I do best.  I know that about myself & I crave structure to function at my best.

The month of March was insanely busy.  There was a LOT of great things, but really, too much at 1 time for this family who likes structure, routine & a regular schedule.  Did I just say the same thing in 3 different ways?

So, I’m instituting my structure back into my life again.  I need it & so does my family!

(Can’t wait for my next Door to Door Organics box to be delivered)

The 30 Clean begins next Monday, April 13 & I can hardly wait.  I don’t even know how many 30 Cleans I’ve participated in, but I love them.  Each time I participate I learn a little more & am always SO grateful I’m clean.

This week is Passover.  Our fridge is on the fritz & a part has been ordered, but we have a few days until it comes in.  So, my typically stocked with vegies fridge is not stocked with vegies this week.  It’s a little bit whacky, but doable for a few days.

I have started running outside, which I adore!  I’m running slowly, but I’m outside.  It’s always difficult to transition from the treadmill to the pavement for me.  It takes my tender feet a while to make the transition, so I’m doing it slowly so that my feet have time to build up to the new feel.

Well, there’s my update & why I have been gone for a bit.  Looking forward to getting back on track & I’ll keep you posted of my progress along the way.

In the meantime, I chose 5 winners for link laces giveaway.  If your name is listed below, please send me your mailing information so you get your laces in time for the outdoor running season!

Young Living Essential Oils

For many years now, I’ve been ordering oils from a couple of different places, or I simply pick them up from Whole Foods or other boutique’s & use them as “cologne”.  I’ve been using oils because they are inexpensive & smell fresh.  I like a fresh/clean smell rather than a strong colonge scent.  I know there are so many benefits of essential oils, but I simply prefer them as “good smells”.  Several weeks ago, Lisa contacted me about her therauputic grade essential oils.  I thought why not try a different brand that I’ve never heard of before because I love discovering new products.  I was shocked when they arrived & I started using them how powerful they could be.  They have many more properties than simply smelling good.  Ha, I’m now a believer.  Let me tell you a little….

IMG 7938 225x300 Young Living Essential OilsIMG 7994 300x300 Young Living Essential Oils

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you’ve noticed over the past several months, I’ve been slowing down with my posts.  I haven’t posted daily, as I used to for quite some time because my life has gotten extremely busy.  I’ll spare you the details, but have been swamped with “life” which has inhibited my ability to blog regularly.  So, of course, the first oil I wanted to try from the Young Living Essential Oils kit that was sent to me was the peace & calming sample

.3398 Young Living Essential Oils

 

 

The explaination of this oil that came in  my booklet said:  “Combining essential oils that are simultaneously soothing and uplifting, Peace & Calming is formulated to help release tension.  Massage onto the soles of your children’s feet before bedtime to encourage a restful night’s sleep.”  Well, I wanted to try it first before I used it on my children.  I did (during the day) put it on the bottom of my feet & on my wrists as well b/c that’s where I usually put my oils.  I must tell you that the scent is very strong.  Much stronger than I’m used to from the other oils I’ve purchased.  So, definitely what I read about the Young Living Essential Oils being pure & powerful holds true there.  Throughout the day, I found myself quiet relaxed & at ease, even with everything going on that day.  I admit to not loving this scent, but do believe that the oils kept me in a nice relaxed place throughout the day.

I then tried the Citrus Fresh & put it on a cotton ball in a few rooms in my house. Stone LOVED the smell & thanked him for putting it in his room.  Our house smelled fresh & clean & it I loved smelling this scent throughout the next couple days.  I did refresh the cotton balls.

This is what is said about Citrus Fresh:  Citrus Fresh™ is a relaxing, calming blend loved by children and adults alike. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports the immune system and overall health* while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. It also works as an air purifier.

One of my favorite scents of all time is lavendar, so of course, I had to try the lavendar.  I don’t honestly know if it’s true for me that lavendar relaxes or if I simply love the scent of lavendar.  Again, I rubbed it on my wrists & rubbed it on my pillow & Truman’s pillow before bed.  Both of us are good sleepers, so that’s not a good test to see if it really helped us sleep better, but it was quite refreshing to smell before I fell asleep & when I woke in the a.m.

I will tell you that the scent is much stronger than the oils I typically purchase.  They also last longer.  It’s certain possible that the benefits are substantial b/c I’ve been surrounding myself with the “relaxing” oils & I’ve felt much more at ease since using them.

Here’s some information about Young Living Essential Oils…
True Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
Therapeutic grade essential oils are extremely concentrated particularly when they have been derived through distillation, which is the most effective method of extraction. Because essential oils are so highly concentrated, most of them are at least 50 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they came from. When herbs are cut & dehydrated for therapeutic use, they can lose as much as 90% of the healthy nutrients as well as the vast majority of the vital oxygen molecules. Not so with essential oils, which are many times more potent than dried herbs.

Most of the essential oils you find in health food stores are so low in quality and full of adulterations, you would be shocked. Even essential oils labeled as “PURE” are not what they seem.

There is a very big difference between the low quality essential oils and true therapeutic grade essential oils.

Young Living Essential Oils set the standard for purity and quality in the U.S. Every batch of oils is rigorously tested by independent laboratories before being sold to customers. You are protected by Young Living’s unconditional guarantee of purity and quality.

I would definitely recommend these oils & am excited that I was given the opportunity to give them a try.

Have you used therapeutic grade essential oils before?  What benefits have you experienced?

Lisa, I’m so grateful for this experience.  Thank you for the opportunity!

I typically post giveaways in the beginning of the week, but I’ve been reviewing this one for a while & am ready for you learn about it!  Link Laces No Tie Shoelaces are Premium Elastic Shoe Laces!  You never have to tie your shoelaces again.  You can use them for boots, athletic shoes, any type of shoes with laces.  I especially found them to be intriguing as I work with people with special needs who have fine motor difficulties & these are brilliant for those who have trouble tying their own laces.  This enables them to be independent with thier shoes!  Brilliant!  I also know that when I run long, I need to stop & adjust my laces, as they become loose & need to be re-tied!

For this review, I put them on Truman’s shoes.  He’s 10, hates to tie his shoes, and has difficulty making his laces tight enough not to come undone.  So, a couple of weeks ago, I thread them through Truman’s shoes  & presto…..  Even for this little guy who is hard on “everything”, they worked!  His shoes stayed on, his laces remained tight & they caused a lot less stress in our house b/c he used to walk around with untied laces.
