Hello Fresh Vegetarian Meal Kit Review

Ain’t nobody got time to make dinner, and that’s why I’ve been trying out and writing about meal kit programs such as Green Chef (organic, vegan option; referral link available at end of that blog post) and Blue Apron (vegetarian option).   We liked Green Chef a lot and were less impressed by Blue Apron.  Most recently, we tried another popular service, Hello Fresh.  Here’s the review…

My Green Chef Review (Organic, Vegan Meal Kit)

IMG_0350Things have been… unstructured… since the end of my Renaissance Periodization cut and my BQ race at the Phoenix Marathon.  I’ve written about my efforts to get back on track, not with the strict diet/training regime I had before, but something with a little direction.  Basically, I need to do a better job of having food on hand so that I didn’t eat cereal and ice cream for every meal (true story).   And a few new recipes after 12 weeks of the same tofu doesn’t sound like a bad idea.   So I decided to try out some meal kit programs.  I’m sampling Green Chef, Blue Apron, and Hello Fresh, at least to start.  I’ll provide a review on each as I wrap up a week of meals.  First up:  Green Chef…

Results Are In! My 28-Day Challenge with Composition ID

Twenty-eight days ago, I did my first DEXA scan with Composition ID, a body fat composition testing company here in DC.  Since then, I’ve made a few tweaks with the aim of reducing my body fat percentage and lowering my total weight, outcomes that I am hopeful will improve my marathon times.  Today, I went in for my second scan…  Just like the first time, it was super easy and painless, and Tiffany even provided all my results in a nice email attachment.  But anyway, the results… drum-roll please…
