Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe

vegetable-soup-recipe

Lately I’m on a soup kick. I’ve never really been a soup person, though.

Is there such a thing as a Soup Person? A type of human more inclined than others to delight in the warmth of a flavorful bowl of broth? I don’t know! But if there is, in the past it wasn’t me. Unless I was sick or out to eat a diner (diners have the best soup, just FYI) then soup never really excited me.

Easy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

easy-oatmeal-cookies

I only say this like everyday, but I love easy recipes. The kind that involve only a handful of ingredients and take 30 minutes or less from start to finish. Unless it’s for a special occasion, I normally don’t have the patience (or the cooking expertise) to spend like nine hours in the kitchen whipping up some kind of gourmet concoction.

Now, there are all different types of easy recipes, but my favorite kinds are dessert recipes. Because let’s be honest, if there’s no dessert after dinner (or at any time of the day, actually), well that’s a major problem as far as I’m concerned. So since these cookies are both those things, obviously I had to share the recipe.

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.)

Vegan White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pancakes

What if told you these fluffy, vegan pancakes are so good that you could even enjoy them sans syrup? Well, at least that’s how I enjoyed them this morning and I didn’t even notice the absence of that sweet maple-y goodness.

Eat Whatever You Want

Before I get into the real gist of today’s post, I want to start out by saying that this is an updated version of a previous post that I wrote a very long time ago. When I first created Hungry Runner, it was more like a “personal diary” type of blog. I was not certified as a personal trainer at the time and aside from what I had learned from surfing through Tumblr and following a few online fitness personalities, I knew very little about nutrition. Everything I wrote was with good intention, but looking back now, some of my thoughts were a little skewed and not the most well-informed. Which is why over the next few months (in addition to fresh, new content!), I’ll be re-adressing some of my older posts. I’ll be looking back on and re-writing entries that include content I feel mis-represents the main message that Hungry Runner has grown to embody, which is to find fun in fitness, eat well, and be happy. With that being said, now let’s have a little chat about food and healthy eating habits.

- Eat Whatever You Want -

Eat whatever you want and still lose weight!” This is the catch phrase and slogan of so many unreliable fad diets and every time I hear it, it makes me think, could someone really “eat whatever they want” and still achieve their goals? My initial reaction to this notion was absolutely not. When I thought about it, it seemed completely ridiculous. I thought “It’s an extremely misleading and completely unhelpful idea for people who want to make healthy changes to their lifestyle but don’t know how do so effectively.”

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!
