Crepes for Breakfast!

I try to eat a warm breakfast at least once a week, more if I'm lucky! Today I woke up way before my alarm but stayed in bed thinking of what to eat for breakfast. Finally just before my alarm was set to go off I go up and started my day. After I got myself up and ready I decided to make Crepes for breakfast!! Whole wheat Crepes to be exact. I don't know why but I'm great at making crepes but I really am terrible at making pancakes. If you are not familiar with the crepe it is a very thin pancake. You can top your crepe however you like. Today my choice of topping was unsweetened apple sauce with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
After I top the crepe I simple roll it up and then eat it up! My all time favorite way to enjoy a crepe is when it's topped with homemade dulce de Leche! For lunch today Leona will be having a crepe topped with Peanut Butter. Ok enough about ways to eat them. Here is the recipe so you can start making them yourself.

Whole Wheat Crepes

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter (melted)

Whisk together all wet ingredients.
Add salt and flour.
Beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oil frying pan over medium heat.

Add 1/4 cup of batter to pan while tilting around in circular motion.

Cook for about 1 minute and then flip.

Note: I usually get 10 crepes by using 1/4 cup of batter for each one

What to Pack for a Ragnar Trail Relay?

Months ago when we decided to sign up for the Ragnar Trail Relay in West Virginia I started a list on my phone of what I wanted to pack. I have been known for being a list maker. Thankfully I am not alone in my list making when more than half of my team has an Engineering background it turns out we are all pretty listy. Our one team member even set up a google doc of what to pack so that we can all edit it. I know I'm a nerd but I love being prepared and I love being organized.

I started packing over the weekend when I knew I wouldn't be wearing most of my running clothes until race day. For the Relay I will be running 3 times so I made sure to pack three complete running outfits. I found a really helpful tip online to place each outfit in a gallon ziplock bag so I wont have to be searching for everything in the middle of the night or while someone else may be sleeping. The event will be all day and all night so I needed to make sure I packed a headlamp and extra batteries. I …

No Lunch Run for Me

Yesterday I was unable to run during my lunch break. My first reaction was self pity but then I quickly had to realize my little girl and her health are far more important. My daughter has been sick on and off for a few weeks and her breathing was very labored and I knew she had to go back to the doctor. Thankfully I was able to get her an appointment that day but it meant leaving work for a few hours and missing my lunch hour. When I start a training plan I tend to get a little obsessive about sticking to as much as I can. I don't know when I became such a rule follower. I have a good friend that I get to work with each day and he came to my rescue yesterday and put me in my place and out of my pity party. Thank you. I need to remember that things are going to change and everything can not always go as planned. When I have acceptance my life is far more serene. So at the end of the day yesterday I did not get to run or even do an alternate workout like I had planned because my hu…

Real Food Real Fuel

On January 1st of this year I started a resolution to eat more real foods. This idea was sparked by real food bloggers like Lisa Leake and Trina Holden. These woman have inspired me greatly to not only eat more real foods but to cook and bake with more real foods. To start out my pledge I cut out all white flour and white sugar from my diet for 45 days. I started to bake my own bread because I could not find actual whole grain bread for sale. Have you ever read the ingredients of your whole wheat bread? It isn't really what it's cracked up to be. So many things in my kitchen had to go: ketchup, salad dressing, vegetable oil, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Cool whip and the list goes on and on. I really had little to know knowledge about reading ingredients for years I was more concerned with calories and nutritional info which can be important info. but now to me the most important info is the ingredients. I am a huge chocolate fan so for the first …
