In our weekly Friday Feature, we share a 5-question interview with one of the fantastic members of HealthyLivingBlogs.com. Take the time to get to know your co-members, pick up tips and tricks, blogging know-how, and recommendations from your fellow bloggers. If you’re an HLB member and haven’t gotten your interview email yet, don’t worry, you will in time! We’re working our way through a list of 2,000+ members’ blogs at random.


What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?

My blog name is Organic Runner Mom. Our family owns an organic egg business so the organic lifestyle and organic food is very important to us. Also, I am an avid runner. I run everything from 5K’s to marathons on the road and on trails and also love to race triathlons. Being a mom is my number one most important job and something that I love!

What can a new visitor expect to find from your blog?

Organic Runner Mom is a blog that features articles about my own personal running experiences in training and in racing. This includes stories about trail racing, half marathons and even my four Boston Marathon experiences. I also write a lot about organic food. I love to share recipes and also awesome organic food products. I also do plenty of product reviews that range from running shoes to apparel to electronic gadgets such as watches and wireless headphones. I share stories about my experiences with depression. Another topic that I cover are training tips for runners.

What is one lesson you’ve learned about blogging since you first started your website?

For me I have found a passion for writing through blogging. I have been able to share my passion with my readers and that inspires me to do more in my own life. Blogging can be challenging because there are so many other amazing blogs out there but through reading other blogs I have found motivation and grown in the writing that I do on my site.

What is your favorite site to visit to find motivation in your healthy living journey? 

I love following the blog Run Far Girl. Sarah shares her journeys in running and in life and isn’t afraid to talk about the things that have been challenges for her. She is inspirational in talking about her trail running and mountain running adventures and also in how she shares about how she has overcome an eating disorder.

What is your favorite way to get moving, burn calories and energy, and get your exercise-on?

My favorite way to get moving is to head out for a trail run. I love the endorphin rush that kicks in about 20 minutes in. I also love the challenge of running on a trail and surrounding myself with nature. There is just something so energizing about being in the woods and breathing it all in.

Tell us about your favorite SOMETHING.

I adore Skirt Sports. Skirt Sports is an incredible company founded by the super awesome Nicole DeBoom, triathlete. Skirt Sports makes the most highly functional workout apparel for women of all body shapes and sizes and they encourage every woman to get out and move. Their apparel is highly functional yet also feminine. They are always working to make better products to suit the needs of all types of athletes and women. Once I started running in their Skirts I never looked back and they have the best pockets too and the most wonderful colorful patterns!

Let’s talk traveling: what is your favorite place to visit in your favorite city or town for vacationing?

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica with women’s Quest. We were in Santa Teresa to surf and do yoga and it was amazing. The warm air, the salt water . . . I could have stayed there forever. I found a new love with surfing. There was something very powerful about being in the ocean and riding the waves. Another favorite place is Bend, Oregon because of the endless mountain and trail running opportunities. I could go back there again and again!

If you could live any place for the rest of your life, where would it be?

If I could live anywhere for the rest of my life it would be somewhere on the water. I would love to live on a lake so I could swim whenever I want to. It would also need to be near running trails so that I could escape to the woods whenever I wanted.

Do you ever experience days when you don’t want to make healthy choices? How do you motivate yourself when you really need it?

There are definitely days when all I want to do is relax on the couch and my weakness is a delicious donut but I figure that it is important to allow yourself these days. No one should be too restrictive and life is too short to not indulge every once in awhile.

Welcome back to Recipe Wednesday; another avenue to promote your very best content, this time in the form of your most favorite recipes on your blog. Each Wednesday when you visit HLB you’ll find the theme for the newest recipe round up.

Some weeks our themes read like cookbook chapters, spotlight ingredients or flavors, or simply request the best recipe for a certain situation. Find an appropriate recipe from your blog archives to fit the theme and add to the link up. Or be inspired to create a new theme-friendly dish worth posting about before next Wednesday.

Each week we feature a handful of our favorite recipes from our HLB Members [learn how to become a Member here: HLB Membership How-To,] giving even more exposure to some of the best you’ve shared from your own kitchen. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Today’s topic is all about after-meal treats to take your BBQ up a notch.  Here are some of our favorite BBQ Dessert recipes from around the HLB community to make for your next outdoor party:

Mango No Bake Cheesecake Squares from Healthy Aperture // “Don’t heat up the oven or your house. The only thing that will be setting off sparks are these no-bake mango cheesecake bars!”

Orange You Juicy Pie from Apple Crumbles // A twist on a Lemonade Pie, this Orange Juice version is sure to perk you up.  We imagine this is just as dreamy as an orange and vanilla swirl cone!

PB&J Bars from Eating Bird Food // “These PB&J Bars are a take on the classic sandwich we all know and love. Made with protein-packed peanut powder, oat flour, organic jam and coconut oil, you can feel good about enjoying these bars whenever you please.”

Ambrosia Whipped Yogurt Fruit Parfaits from How Sweet Eats // Jessica turns this BBQ salad staple into an individually packaged delight with a parfait spin.

Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake Parfait from ShugarySweets // “Delicious, no bake dessert recipe, these Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake Parfaits are the perfect creation for serving a group!”

Mandarin Pie from The Pajama Chef // “A creamy, dreamy mandarin orange pie made with an Oreo crust and topped off with mini chocolate chips… this cool treat is perfect for hot nights.”

Lemony Fruit Dip from Mother Rimmy // Light and lemony, this dip will pair perfectly with finger-food friendly strawberries, grapes and slices or other fruits to add some #FreggiePower to the BBQ spread. 

Key Lime Coconut Dream Bars from The Glowing Fridge // “Tart, light and tasting just like coconut key lime pie but in square form, they’re made without dairy and refined sweeteners. No food coloring either. These lime squares are colored naturally with a blend of spirulina powder and ground turmeric.”

Vegan Lemon Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Squares from The Healthy Family and Home // The perfect spring or summer dessert, this cheesecake is made with only seven ingredients.

Mini Vegan Chocolate Hibiscus Cake from The Almond Eater // “This Mini Vegan Chocolate Hibiscus Cake combines classic, dairy free chocolate cake with a mildly sweet hibiscus icing. Give it a try—you’re going to love it!” 

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes with Coconut Oil Buttercream Frosting from Gettin My Healthy On // “Make strawberry shortcake a little bit healthier with the help of Greek yogurt and coconut oil for a slightly more nutritious, yet still delicious, cupcake recipe.”

Grain-Free Strawberry Shortcake Donuts from The Wheatless Kitchen // “You can whip up these grain-free donuts in only a few minutes, and the best part is that you only need a few ingredients!”

Raspberry Date Squares from Lynda Layng // “These little bites are the perfect something at the end of a meal to make you smile… The chunky nut oatmeal base topped with sweet date filling and fresh berries, it’s sure to be please any guest.”

The Best Old Fashioned Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies from Kim’s Cravings // “The BEST old fashioned chocolate peanut butter no bake cookies that your family and friends won’t be able to stop eating. Consider this a warning, folks… you can’t have just one of these chocolatey, peanut buttery mounds of deliciousness!” 

Rocky Road Brownies from The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie // “These rocky road brownies are topped with chocolate ganache, handfuls of mini marshmallows and some chopped nuts – then drizzled with more ganache.”

What’s your name, blog name, and how did you create your blog title?

Mac Dodds, I have 2 blogs Live Good blog, and Myablebody.com I basically share the same content on both blogs. I decided to call my blog myablebody.com because I always want to be able to do things with my body.

What is your tagline and why?

Live your best life NOW…. Because there’s no guarantees about tomorrow.

What’s one goal you’re working towards right now?

I’m working on helping people through my new program called Mind 4 Life where we meet online weekly for 8 weeks and people lose weight and get in shape by doing small behavior changes and practice mindfulness.

What daily health to-do is easiest for you to complete? Which is the one you struggle with every single day?

Easy for me to eat non processed food. Harder for me to get to bed early. That’s one of the behaviors I’m working on with my Mind 4 Life participants.

What is your healthy eating philosophy?

Make your food and bring it with you. Eat off of small plates and drink out of skinny glasses. Shaves off calories without being noticeable.

We searched the #BlogHealthy community for 15 stellar Date Night In dishes to make together for your next special evening in the kitchen together: 

Brined and Seared Pork Tenderloin from Food Fash // “In the theme of keeping this recipe simple with classic flavors, I created a brine with water, salt, Herbes de Provence, and sugar. Herbes de Provence is an herb mix that typically consists of savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, and oregano, all of which compliment pork very nicely.”

Almond Pear Crisp for Two from RDelicious Kitchen // “A perfectly portioned dessert, these Almond Pear Crisps take less than 15 minutes to make!”

Grilled Cilantro Lime Steak from Jessica Levinson // “Perfectly grilled cilantro lime steak is easy to make and a delicious entrée to serve guests at your next summer barbecue.”

Surf and Turf Burger from Ingredients of a Fit Chick // A quick and easy burger with double proteins and a sweet and savory combination. The best part – it only takes 10 minutes to prep!

Surf N Turf NY Steak and Shrimp from Kroll’s Korner // A classic pair on the plate, paired with veggies and a potato this would be perfect for your next date night in!

Steak Crostini from My Bizzy Kitchen // This is a simple and delicious meal that takes only a few minutes to pull together.

Pasta Date Night from Zen and Spice // Emily shares their date-night-in experience making homemade pasta together.

Chocolate Lovers Coconut Milkshakes with Sea Salt from How Sweet Eats // Just read that title over again, slowly… “And while you’re at it, please look at how light and fluffy and pillow-ish the chocolate whipped cream is on top of these shakes.”

Thai-Style Cauliflower Steak from Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen // “With a creamy, spicy peanut sauce as well as a tangy lime sauce, this Thai-Style Cauliflower Steak is always a crowd-pleaser! It’s the perfect dish for special occasions such as date night or a dinner party.”

Bloody Mary Steak Kabobs from Hungry Hobby // Fun, zesty and flavorful, we love the idea of this Bloody Mary themed kebob! This dish is paleo friendly, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Surf and Turf for Two from Iowa Girl Eats // “Surf and Turf for Two with sea scallops and filet mignon with rosemary-wine pan sauce is an elegant, decadent dish to make with a loved one at home!”

Vegetarian Cheeseboard for Two from Dietitian Debbie Dishes // “Make this vegetarian cheeseboard for two for a fun date night in this weekend! This one includes cheese, crackers, pistachios, apricots and more.”

Easy Strawberry Gluten Free Chocolate Lava Cakes for Two from Food Faith Fitness // “These Gluten Free Chocolate Lava Cakes for Two are a 15 minute dessert that feels SO fancy! They’re gluten/grain/dairy free and better for you too!”

Seared Scallops with Bacon Zucchini Noodles from Kim’s Cravings // “The absolute most perfect date night meal – Seared Scallops with Bacon Zucchini Noodles. It’s a little bit of fancy with a huge amount of flavor and so super easy to cook up. You and your sweetheart will go ga-ga over this healthy, cozy meal!”

Working out from home?! Some people love it. Other people hate it. Some think they can’t because they don’t have enough room. Other’s like me, find it so convenient (except for when my cats jump on my back while I do push-ups, “thanks Harry for the added weight!” LOL).

Seriously though whether you love it or hate it you can’t deny that working out from home is the easiest and most convenient way to workout, right? I mean, it’s exercising in your home.

In fact, here are 3 benefits to At Home Workouts:

  1. You don’t have to travel to a gym/studio and waste time commuting and parking,
  2. You don’t have to worry about what you look like or your outfit,
  3. You can fit in short and sweaty workouts when/where it’s right for you!
  4. I know I said 3 but… it also means you can shower in your own home right after, all of your stuff is there, you can get on with your day without skipping a beat, etc!

Essentially working out from home can be super helpful when it comes to creating consistency with your workouts and feeling/seeing results!

So now that you’re on board and ready to workout from home here is what you can do to set up an at-home-workout-space!

  1. Equipment

First, I like to note that you do NOT need to buy any equipment to have effective workouts from home. Nothing. BUT if you want to get some equipment here are the 4 things you might want to buy:

  1. 2 or 3 pound Weights
  2. 5 pound Weights
  3. Resistance Bands
  4. Yoga Mat
  5. Yoga Blocks and Strap

     Click here to check out exactly which ones I have in my own home workout space!

Seriously that is it. All of that might cost you $25 and you’ll have it forever! You might also find that you need heavier weights like 8 or 10 pounds as you become stronger, but starting out with 5 pounds is good.

Once you have the few pieces of workout equipment you need, I suggest putting them in a nice basket or tote so that everything stays in one place and is easy to find!

  1. Space

There are two ways to create workout space in your home: 1) temporary, 2) permanent.

If you don’t have a lot of space or share the space with others you might want to create a temporary workout space. That might mean moving your coffee table over so that you have room to exercise in your living room. Some members also exercise in their kitchens where there is lots of room and hardwood floors! Essentially, get creative because all you need is enough room to move your body, for most of us that’s the same space as a yoga mat.

If you can create a permanent workout space you are in luck because that just makes the whole process even smoother and better. What you would want to do is clear a space large enough to fit a yoga mat, lay out your yoga mat, put your tote of equipment in this space, and then decorate the space with inspiring messages and pictures that make you feel motivated and empowered!!

  1. Commit

Finally, while it’s definitely easier and more convenient to workout from home it can also be challenging as there are SO many distractions at home (like your laundry, dishes, work, email, pets, kids, etc). So if you are going to workout from home you need to commit. Commit to making time for yourself and following through.

Some easy ways to help you commit include:

  • Scheduling your workouts in your calendar and treating them like appointments,
  • Setting reminders on your phone to remind you to workout,
  • Getting an accountability buddy (someone to check in with), and
  • Writing down your goals somewhere you can see them everyday so you remember WHY you are committing to exercising and being healthy.

So are you ready to workout from home?! I know I am.

If you are ready but you don’t know what to do for the actual workouts check out Grounded Warrior and sign up for a free 8 day trial by clicking here. We are also offering all Healthy Living Bloggers 30% OFF a Yearly Membership (talk about a great way to commit, right!) – just use the coupon code HLB30 when you sign up!

Grounded Warrior is what I created to help people like you workout from home safely and effectively (because remember, doing thousands of squats isn’t effective or fun).

from Erin Madore, Erin@GroundedWarrior.com
Erin Madore is the Founder & CEO of Grounded Warrior and loves coffee and burpees! She has been in the fitness and wellness industry for over 5 years and has a diverse background as she is a Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Personal Trainer, Reiki Master, and Spinning Instructor.
