Double Feature

Remember double features at the movie theater?


You could pay for one ticket and see 2 movies.  Some of you just snuck in, I know. ;)

I haven’t seen them do that in so long!  We should start a petition to bring it back in time for Oscar season next year.  This year I spent too much money going to see the nominees.  And I did NOT like Shame.


While this post has nothing to do with movies, it does contain some features!

First up, I was THRILLED (and shocked) when Fitness Magazine reached out to me and asked if I’d be willing to do an interview and submit a recipe for a spot in their “Fit Blogger We Love” series.



Click here for the full interview and to find out what my fitness mantra is.


Feature #2 is a guest post.  I’m guesting Kimberly @ Badger Girl Learns to Cook (not to be confused with Honey Badger).



Click here to check out my reasons for seasonal eating, and for one of my favorite spring recipes: Meyer Lemon Ricotta Penne with Asparagus.

Note to my plant-based peeps: You can use the “cheese” from the recipe in the Fitness Mag feature to make the penne dish vegan.


Annnnd a Bonus Feature:

My Raspberry Baked Oatmeal To-Go made the Food Buzz Top 9 today!



Thank you SO MUCH for the Buzz, and welcome new readers!


My mantra right now is “one more day until Friday!”

What was your favorite Oscar-nominated move this year?

Do you have a fitness mantra?  What is it?

  1. Claire @ Live and Love to Eat

    You are all over the place today lady – in a good way! Congrats on all the great exposure, you deserve it!

    1. Laura

      As opposed to the crazy way that I’m usually scattered about. :)

  2. Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family

    Thank you for the 2 for 1 feature today!

    Congrats on the magazine interview. Way to get your name out there and have more readers :)

    I read Badger Girl regularly so I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I opened her post and there was your delicious recipe (probably another Top 9 coming your way).

    I am WAY behind times and didn’t see any of the Oscar movies (I am pretty sure a silent movie is not for me) I have a hard time sitting still that long and just don’t have the attention span for most movies, OH WELL!

    Have a great day!

    1. Laura

      Thank YOU!

      I really wanted to see The Artist! Or course, it was one of the only ones I missed.

  3. Lauren @ Lawfully Wedded Wife

  13. Candy @ Healthy In Candy Land

    I smiled to miyself when I read your interview because just this morning as I was walking to the gym I said to myself, “Every damn day.” and then I thought of you and your shirt!

    1. Laura

      Thanks Candy!

      Funny side note: there’s a homeless guys in Atlanta that has the men’s version of that shirt. It kind of make me want to give him money every damn day…

  14. Lee

  16. Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean

    you’re a rockstar!! xoxo

  17. Baker Street

    Congratulations on top 9! Truly deserving. :)

  18. Khushboo

    Hell yeah to your fitness mantra- totally agree! Congrats on all your features! My fitness mantra is definitely “You’re only one workout from a good mood”….low intensity or high, any kind of movement is a surefire way to get those endorphins going!

    1. Laura

      That is SO true. you never regret a workout. :)

  19. Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning

    Yay- congrats on all that good stuff!! So glad that more people will find out about your fabulous blog!
    Once again, I haven’t seen a single movie that was nominated. I never, ever go to the movies. Okay, that’s not true, I go like 3-4 times a year, but it’s usually just whenever Paul Rudd is in a new movie. :)
    I would like to see the Descendants though!
    My mantra: One more week til spring break!!

    1. Laura

      Thanks Lauren! I don’t know what got into me this year. I’m not a movie person but I suddenly wanted to see like 3 or 4 of the nominated movies. I was, of course, disappointed.

  20. Anonymous

    Congrats on the interview Laura…that is awesome!

    My fitness mantra? Lift as many bottles/glasses of wines as humanly possible in one day. :-)

    1. sportsglutton

      Oops…that was me.

      1. Laura

        Thanks! I’m digging your mantra. :)

  21. Lindsay @ Lindsay's List
