    I'm Lauren and this is a blog dedicated to living life with a healthy balance. I love to run, strength train, bike and just be downright active. I'm a marathoner as of April 24, 2010 and am currently looking forward to qualifying for the Boston Marathon.

    I absolutely love to eat and enjoy great food but doing it all in moderation. You'll see healthy, organic foods on here frequently but you'll also run into things such as pizza and sweets. I believe you can have it all... just not all at once.

    I'm always learning and discovering new foods, recipes, workouts and ways to live a healthy lifestyle. Join me on my journey towards becoming my healthiest self.

Frittata Goodness

I have thoroughly enjoyed having the rest of my day off from work. I got to relax and chill. I even ended up taking an hour nap which I always love and welcome with open arms. It’s rare that I just get to chill out. Usually there is always something to do like clean, laundry, dishes, cook, blog, run, strength train, grocery shop, etc. I’m hoping my upcoming 3 day weekend will be much like today was… relaxing.

After my quick nap, I woke up to my husband cooking dinner. We ate frittata tonight! I’ve never had it, nor heard of it.

Recipe:

Sautee veggies of choice. We used mushrooms, onions, black olives and asparagus. (We put the black olives in the end, no sautee)

Use desired amount of eggs and mix egg with pepper, Italian cheese and cheddar cheese with a pinch of garlic.

Place sauteed veggies in an oil rubbed ceramic (oven safe) dish.

Pour egg mixture on top of veggies.

Add feta and Italian cheese on top with cracked pepper.

Place under the broiler for about 6 minutes on Hi.

We had sliced apple with almond butter and wheat toast for the sides. Yummy yummy goodness.

I think my ravenous nature is slowly going away. I didn’t feel as hungry after dinner so I’m hoping it’s on its way out the door!

I didn’t go on a run. I’m thinking tomorrow I’ll hit the pavement. I just did some intense ab exercises instead and hoping to get some leg exercises completed before the night ends. We’ll see.

Since I have a long weekend, I went ahead and decided to conquer oats for the first time! I got my steel cut oats out and decided to go the overnight route. I’m pretty excited about it. I made 4 servings worth so I’m good until next Monday!

I’m excited to try real oats for the first time! I have lots of goodies to mix in! I have a feeling there’s a whole new world out there I’m about to discover with the realm of oats and I can’t wait! Stay tuned to see how they turn out!

Hope you all had a great mid-week day! Friday is almost here!!!

P.S. I know the quality of my pictures has been pretty yucky lately but it’s because I discovered as my camera went dead that I must have left my camera charger in Vegas so I had to order a new one and it hasn’t arrived in the mail yet!  Boo.  I’m hoping it gets here soon so I can take good pictures again!  So bear with me until I can get my camera up and running again.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite things to put in oats?

    I havae never been brae enough to try the steel cut oats. I use the Weight Wtachers instant oatmeal, but I always add blueberries or bananas!
