Swiss and Pepper Portabella Frittata is a fun twist on a frittata or country omelet which is basically a omelet that’s baked… like our Caprese French Country Omelet and Country French Omelet.

Miss Nichole’s Treadmill Workouts. . .  
Summer schedules are crazy, at least at my house they are, which means I have to fit in runs and workouts whenever and where ever I can. In the heat of day with four kids at home I can’t necessarily head out for my run, those are the days when I am grateful for a treadmill. If I can get baby down for a nap and the other three busy with something I can sneak in a run in the basement, my seventy degree basement. I love having a workout plan for the treadmill, especially when I am really wishing for the open road, which means I am doing speed for hill work. Today we are doing both, or at least getting the option for both.

There are a lot of workouts out there that have the specific speed listed, I don’t believe in that because everyone is different. A pace that is killer for you may be easy breezy for that crazy runner chick on the treadmill next to you. Instead of having a listed speed pay attention to what the workout is for and pay attention to your own body and how hard it is working.
 
Remember, these workouts are meant to challenge you. Rise to the challenge folks!
