Meatless Monday: Game Changers

 I've got two extremely important announcements for today:

#1. Your workout wedgie woes have been solved. (What?! You don't have this problem?)
#2. I'm pregnant!

Ha! No I'm not, but didn't it seem like I was going there? Around here important announcements are about underwear and food. Soooo: #2. I've found the best and easiest peanut butter cookie recipe e-v-e-r. Your welcome.

Let's start with a little story about a girl who gets a wedgie every single freaking time she runs. Every time. There is nothing classier than a girl huffing and puffing, jogging down the road with a bright red face, dripping in sweat, attempting to casually unpick her wedgie. This underwear though, has grippy strips along the backside keeping everything in place. OMG it is fantastic. Now I can focus on my burning calves, racing pulse and gasping for air.

My awesome new underwear courtesy of the sale section of Target. I found these 2 packs on sale for $3.88 a pair and I scooped up a few. So for all you other girls who are plagued with wedgies when you work out run over to Target and pick up a pair, it'll change your life!

We rocked it out, running this week! We ran 3 times, a 3 miler, 3 miler, and 6 miles Sunday night. High Five to us!!! I owe it all to the magical wedgie free undies :)

On Thursday I was having a no good, awful, very bad day. A slam your head against your desk, get so mad your face turns burning red, need a punching bag day. So I came home, made a giant pot of spicy tortilla soup and found this little gem of a recipe online.

It's for peanut butter cookies. It has 4 ingredients. What?! With only 4 ingredients it barely even qualifies as a recipe. I had little to no faith in these cookies turning out. Really, I thought they would be gross. But I figured if they were mildly decent it would be worth it just because they were so easy, if they were horrible, well at least it took no time and no ingredients really.

Now based on the ranting and raving I did about our favorite Mac and Cheese you may be thinking I just like to oversell these recipes I share with you, but I swear that I am just sharing our favorites and they really are that good. Mind blowingly, deliciously tasty!

If you are in need of something sweet and love peanut butter these are for you. They stay super soft and moist on the inside and get a nice crust on the outside. Perfect really. And without the flour you really get all that peanut buttery flavor! Trust me when I say that you need to try these.

Easiest PB Cookies Ever!

  • 1 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 t baking soda

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix everything up!
3. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with a fork, making a criss cross pattern on the cookies.
4. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 10 minutes.

Mix it Up: Try mixing in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, rolling them in sugar or sprinkling with some sea salt


  1. I feel like after your pregnancy joke people weren't sure what to say! But I'm glad you found some good undies to exercise in. You guys are really running over there. I've yet to go running here but hopefully that will change soon :)

    1. LOL, right? Can you imagine if that was how I announced it to family? Uh, hey, read anything cool on my blog lately... haha. I think it would be fun if we all met somewhere and ran a race together!
