Freekeh and Shredded Kale Salad with Beets & Feta

Last year my relationship with running was very much a love-hate relationship.  There were certainly days that I loved it, and there were days that I had amazing runs.  But, there were many more days that my body just wasn’t feeling it, or that I was on the brink of/in the midst/recovering from injury.  I […]
