Strengthen Your CORE

February 19, 2011

FUN FUN FUN day!!!!

This morning Matt and I super-cleaned the house. Including some of my grandmother’s oil lamps! They are sparkling from the inside out now :)


Then we walked (3 miles!) to the grand opening of CORE Chiropractic, Tate and Faith’s new business.


On the bottom of the building Dr. Huffman has his state-of-the-art clinic.

On top, Faith has a space for personal training (she is certified in all kinds of things and will be doing group exercise classes!) and a few rented out studios for other types of healthcare. I had actually planned to do a talk on nutrition, but they had a smaller turnout than planned so we postponed the talk for another occasion.

Faith made a few bites for the occasion – including the most AMAZING MUFFINS!!!!!!!!


Stuffed with…hold your breath…peanut butter filling!


Go bother Faith for the recipe. It’s really, really epic.


She also had Chai Spice, which were great too – we snagged a few for home!


Plus Kefir Soda


As well as the most amazing White Bean Dip. I’ve got to get the recipe for this STAT!


Matt and I ate lots of muffins, crackers, dip and cheese at the clinic, but our afternoon plans included lunch and drinks at Beer Run to help the new business owners celebrate.


Clearly beers would be involved.



After little debate, I ordered the Schneider Aventinus Weizenbock


Loved! Banana Spice, full body.


Since we’d filled up on nibbles, we just got light bites for lunch.


Greens for me


And an Apple + Brie Sandwich for him


Faith and Tate split some delicious white wine

Inside our patio seating it was a sauna! In a wonderful warm spring day way. In the summer it would have been too hot, but in the spring, we loved it.

Matt and I walked a windy, long 3 miles back home, which took us about an hour.

Karen is here and the fun continues!

28 Baking 'n' Books February 19, 2011 at 7:47 pm

Sounds like a great place – what an accomplishment to Faith and Tate!

I would like your weather – and beers please. I’m pretty sure I can’t do the weather thing (cold and snow here) – but I’ll manage with the beers…;)

Was wondering – what’s your take on drinking? Do you enjoy a glass or two of something most days? Daily? Thanks.

Hi Kath,
I have a question for you. How does one go about finding an RD? I need to go to one for stomach issues, not weight loss. Thought maybe you could give a suggestion.
Love the placemats. Bought 4 today at Target 1$ each. Needed to bring Spring into the house w/ 23 degree weather. Also, let my hubby use one of the bird coffee mugs I got from Open Sky on your flash sale. Jealous of your weather :)


49 KathEats February 20, 2011 at 8:53 am has a “find an RD” button at the top right of its homepage. Then you can search by zip code and state for a list of local ones to you,


50 seana February 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

Thank you for your reply. I will check it out.
PS: Your nachos look delicious :)


51 Katie February 20, 2011 at 8:57 am

Nice Cambridge sweatshirt!
