GoBites Snack Pack Giveaway!

It’s no secret that I love snacks. If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll find this fact is quite apparent.

Right now, some of my favorites snacks include, red pepper slices dipped in Trader Joe’s Greek yogurt spinach and kale dip, homemade pumpkin muffins, trail mix (like salted cashews with raisins), and air popped popcorn with coconut oil and cinnamon. Oh and for an alternative to the classic peanut butter and banana combo, I’ve recently been spreading cookie butter (also from Trader Joe’s) on my bananas. It’s superbly sweet and tastes like cake, but it’s a lot better for you. (Well the banana is at least.)

Knowing When to Say No

By now most of you know that last month I started a new job as an editor at TheActiveTimes.com. But unless you did some serious snooping, you probably don’t know that The Active Times’ sister site is TheDailyMeal.com. In other words I work in the same office space as The Daily Meal, a site dedicated to all things good food. (I know, it couldn’t be more perfect.)

So, The Daily Meal has this exquisite test kitchen (also located in our office) where the staff is always cooking up recipes and hosting taste tests. It’s amazing. I love it. TDM recently published “The 101 Best Pizzas in America,” and as a staff, the entire media group celebrated the article’s success with afternoon pizza and drinks last Friday (which also happened to be the same day as my birthday). Basically, my new job has sort of come along with many a perks in the form of food.

Why You Should Never “Go On a Diet” Again

[image by Daisy Fitness]

Fun fact: One of my new favorite Fitness Nerd pastimes is listening to Radio MD‘s “Train Your Body” podcasts while commuting on the subway. You might remember that I mentioned the show here on Hungry Runner back in August when I talked about whether or not walking with weights burns more calories. (And if you don’t remember, or you missed that post, go give it a good read right now because the answer might surprise you. Plus you’ll learn tons of great tips for how to rev up your walking workouts!)

Anyway, every Radio MD segment is hosted by ACSM trainer Melanie Cole, MS. Each week she features a new guest, usually an expert in health, exercise, nutrition, or a related field, and the show is always jam-packed with top-notch health and fitness information. So, since I’ve totally been on a Radio MD podcast-listening binge, and plan to continue the habit for as long as I have to ride the C-Train down to Chelsea everyday, I want to share all of the new healthy living advice and fitness tips that I’m learning here with you on a regular basis. This week the topic is “Diet Burnout.”

Favorite Food Finds Friday: My New Favorite Healthy Pasta Sauce + a Giveaway!

Once again it is Friday (YAY!), and once again I have a new favorite food to share with you!

This week’s favorite food find comes from Mia’s Kitchen. Mia is an actual person and I met her a few weeks ago at Food Fete. She let me sample several of her all-natural, homemade tomato sauces and then listened to me rant and rave about each of the different flavors and how I just couldn’t wait to include them as toppings on my weekly Friday homemade pizzas.

Mia was thrilled with how abnormally excited I was about her sauce (and just food in general), and to make a long story short, we pretty much became BFF’s after bonding over our love of food, especially that of the Italian variety!

Watch this weeks Food Finds video (above) to learn more about her authentic, flavorful sauces and to find how you can enter to win a jar of your own!
