Let’s hear it for Friday! It’s the last Friday of summer, too, whether that’s a happy or sad event in your book. September must be rubbing off on me, because I am finally ready to welcome Fall.
Are you ready Fall… or how about the 6th edition of Friday Feature!? Today we have the one and only, multi-talented Jen DeCurtins of Peanut Butter Runner. Jen is one busy gal (just reading her typical Tuesday day in the life post makes me exhausted!), but she kindly agreed to do a post swap today.
Jen is one of my fitness inspirations: she lives and breathes all things exercise. As a marathoner, yoga instructor, CrossFit coach, and group exercise guru, Jen knows a thing or two about living the fit life. Not only do Jen and I share a commonality as gym rats, but we are also farmer’s market activists, real butter bakers, Lululemon lovers… and peanut butter runners!
Get the inside scoop on Jen in our short Q & A below, and then stop by her blog for your daily dose of healthy eats and hearty exercise — enjoy!
Q & A with Jen DeCurtins | Peanut Butter Runner
1. If we were to look inside your fridge right now, what would we find?
A big pot of homemade spaghetti sauce, a variety of cheeses, apples, peaches, Greek yogurt, hummus, almond milk, greens like baby kale and rainbow chard, okra, eggplant, eggs, several varieties of peanut butter, and lots of other staples and condiments.
2. Fall is right around the corner… what are your go-to weekday dinners during the cooler season?
A protein like chicken or salmon along with lots of roasted stuff like cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potatoes, winter squash, Brussels sprouts, etc. I love to turn the oven on 400F and fill up a baking sheet with whatever I have on hand. It’s also great to have a great chili or soup on hand. I love this butternut squash and bean chili and this carrot butternut ginger soup.
5. If we were to step into your shoes, what would a typical Saturday be like?
My ideal Saturday, when I’m not working, is to sleep in until 8:00 or so, and then get in a 90-minute yoga class. After class, I typically shower at the studio, grab coffee, hit up the farmer’s market and then make lunch with farmers market finds. Saturday afternoons are usually spent doing stuff around the house or running errands. I like to have social plans on Saturday nights and usually end up going out for dinner or hanging out with friends.
