About Us

We are a typical late 20’s, early 30’s couple from the Midwest with good jobs, a house and a beagle, Maggie, who walks around the house like a spoiled teenager. Jason is a Web Developer/Content Developer for a local radio station while Laura is in Clinical Research at a medical device start up company. We both work long hours and sit all day long. Outside of work we keep busy too, we love to run,  enjoy reading and being outside…even when there is snow on the ground!

Being busy hasn’t helped us be really healthy, so we are both trying to lose a little weight (or in Jason’s case, a lot).

After collecting so many recipes, testing them out on our friends and having these friends hound us for our recipes, we decided to start a blog. A majority of what you’ll find is food that tastes great but won’t leave you with extra pounds getting packed on because of it. At least, that’s the hope.

Now… that doesn’t mean you won’t find the recipe for amazing brownies here either… After all, we are still human and Laura has a chocolate addiction. So she likes to follow up the desserts with workout ideas.

If you’ve got a request for us or have some feedback, click here. We’d love to hear from you!
