Keeping up during my week with snacks

We all need to make sure to take care of ourselves. I find it even more pertinent as a teacher, especially a teacher of yoga. I teach at multiple places for yoga and cycle, which means I drive from one class to the next multiple times a day. My eating schedule depends on my teaching schedule […]

Major Munchie Monday

Wow, I don’t know what happened today. All day all I wanted to do was eat. I had the munchies. I wanted to eat carrots and I wanted to eat candy and I wanted to eat chips and just about anything else I could get my hands on. Since back to a healthy routine I […]


Making easy, healthy snack at home

My friend and co-worker Regina let me try a homemade Peanut Butter Ball one day on the shuttle on our way home. It was so good. So I asked her for the recipe. I went to the grocery this morning for my regular run and to get the ingredients for the Peanut Butter Balls. I […]

Healthy snacks keep me goin’

I realized when I got to work today I had plenty of healthy snacks to keep me going for the week. And it wasn’t even all planned. I did have a yogurt and some light butter popcorn today. I also had some blueberries and strawberries. I still have carrots, edamame (leftovers from dinner last night) […]


Making healthy choices

About 4 o’clock today I felt snacky. I wasn’t hungry … But I still walked into the kitchen and looked at the snacks available. Not a lot of options. I thought about the peanuts, popcorn, unfortunately we are out of cheese–cheese stick would have been good. I looked through my options and realized I really […]


And the newest Go Fit Girl! is …

She received many more comments when she posed the question: What do you eat when you’re feeling very snacky but don’t need (or want) […]
