Certainly, by now, if you are an avid reader, I don’t have to tell you that I’m a sugar free runner. That said, I can tell you that 90% of the food and drink items geared towards runners contain sugar. And loads of it.

One of the many benefits of being fat adapted is having your wits about you as you greet the final few miles of an endurance event. I’m still in awe, that as I look around me at the end of a marathon, so many runners are more than whooped. They look scared, exhausted, disheveled, and emotionally spent. Of course, I understand. The marathon IS an endurance event. It is not easy and it is not for the faint of heart. Just toeing the line means you are made of something, of which the typical human who doesn’t run, is not.

#FACLW – Miracle Noodle Ambrosia #Recipe

When I was a kid, my mom used to make this amazing, sweet, dessert salad that she’d bring to picnics, cook outs, family gatherings, what have you.

It was my ultimate favorite.

She taught me how to make it when I was about 8 years old because you didn’t need to cook anything. You just needed to open a few cans of fruit and measure out simple ingredients. The dish was called Ambrosia, or One Cup Salad, since basically, you used one cup of each of the ingredients.

#FACLW – Miracle Noodle Jalapeño Cheese Casserole/Dip #Recipe

Sometimes I pat myself on the back for coming up with the most perfect dish that the entire family devours. This is especially pleasing when one of my children dislikes a few of the ingredients. I’m always grateful that their sense of adventure doesn’t keep them from even trying a new dish. In fact, with just one little taste of this one, my daughter, who doesn’t care for Jalapeños OR bacon (is she, in fact, MY child? If she didn’t have an identical twin, I’d suspect she was switched at birth), will eat an entire bowl of this at one sitting. Actually, so would I. I have even considered, on several occasions, making a recipe for myself …yes…just for me…for dinner. It is that gosh darn good.

Purely Inspired Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two – #FACLW

Purely Inspired Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

Yesterday was Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. Who knew? Since when does a chocolate chip cookie get it’s own “day”?

I don’t indulge in sugar, so for me, this is as insignificant as doughnut day. Blech. Don’t need ’em, don’t want ’em.

But a chocolate chip cookie? That might be nice, if I could figure out how to make it sugar free and healthy. And since you usually can’t eat just one, being able to make just a smackerel would be plus.
