Thanks bunches for your kind words in response to my race-related freakout.  I KNOW I’ve got this one in the bag, I just need to remember NOT to let my nerves get the best of me!


Work has been so-so this AM.  It’s always difficult to get back into the swing of things.


I snacked on Fiber 1 + Chobani Vanilla yogurt around 10:30.


And ate a tofu-rific lunch around 11:35.


I pressed and marinated 1/2 block of extra firm tofu in BBQ sauce, EVOO, chili powder and similar spices, and some red wine vinegar.  This tofu comes pre-cut into tiny blocks, which is nice.


I baked it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, which was about 5 minutes too long!  This tofu was extra crunchy.


Plus, some green beans


And a slice of WW bread with melted cheese.

    i’ve been meaning to try it out! you will do fabulous this weekend 🙂

  • Sharon February 23, 2009, 10:47 am

    Hi Caitlin,
    I just read your morning post. Don't worry- you'll do great at your races next weekend! I agree that starting your taper now would definitely be a wise choice. I don't want to see you getting hurt which often happens when the body is tired and therefore more susceptible to injury (take me as an example!). Anyway, I KNOW you will do great because you have such a strong base already!

    Love the melty cheese sammie & the cubed tofu. I've never seen cubed tofu, but it looks so convenient.

    I hope your day flies by- have a great one!

  • Hillary February 23, 2009, 10:47 am

    I’ve never tried stevia before but have been interested in trying it in my tea (usually use honey)!

  • Lynn February 23, 2009, 12:23 pm

    Also…do you take daily fish oil? As a triathlete, I find it miraculous for muscle aches and recovery. Make sure you are getting at least 1200 EPA daily (look on the label) for maximum anti-inflammatory effect. Start now, and use right after. I swear by it. You hurt because you pushed the pace. You are right to taper now.

  • lauren February 23, 2009, 12:24 pm

    never tried stevia, but I hope I win, so I can!

    liquid!? cool! and also i had NO idea there were flavored varieties. pick me pick me 🙂

  • amelia February 23, 2009, 5:16 pm

    I’d love to a chance to try Stevia.
    Also, I think you’re smart to taper now. You won’t lose any endurance in a week but you can definitely benefit from giving your body some extra recovery time.

  • leslie February 23, 2009, 5:26 pm

    i’ve been dying to try this!

    i can’t wait to hear your race recap – you’ll do amazingly. i’m living vicariously through you because my knees are in pretty bad shape right now. i’m sure you’ll have an incredible weekend! definitely give those legs some rest this week though!

  • Alex February 23, 2009, 6:00 pm

    Ooh, pick me pick me!!

  • Jewels February 23, 2009, 6:01 pm

    I would love to try this!

  • Justine February 23, 2009, 6:21 pm

    I use Stevia almost every day in my oatmeal! I use the powdered kind though…never tried the extract!

  • Maddy February 23, 2009, 6:25 pm

    I’ve never tried Stevia! How exciting =)

  • Laura February 23, 2009, 6:35 pm

    I use powdered stevia from the packets all the time. This stuff sounds great!

    I have always been curious about Stevia but a little nervous to taste it. I would love to try this variety!

  • gingersnap February 23, 2009, 6:51 pm

    I’ve been eying stevia but haven’t tried it yet…the cinnamon flavor sounds fun to try!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point February 23, 2009, 7:02 pm

    So many entries! YAY!

    Nasoya Extra Firm tofu is my very favorite type of tofu! It’s great!

    And I buy Arnold’s 100% WW bread. 🙂

  • Lauren February 23, 2009, 7:06 pm

    I grew my own Stevia plant last year and used the leaves in many a recipes.
    What a great natural sweetener!

  • Laura B. February 23, 2009, 7:17 pm

    Oh, cool contest! I’ve always wanted to try Stevia.

  • BOBBI McCORMICK February 23, 2009, 7:45 pm

    so want this!!!!

  • Dee February 23, 2009, 7:51 pm

    Honestly, you should taper before your races this weekend, but that means to cut back not cut out running. Otherwise, your legs are going to feel awfully heavy come Saturday morning. Your legs will still be fresh if you don’t run them to exhaustion this week. I’ve been running for years and am involved with running groups and have a coach who encourages us to run fast, short runs the week of a race, even up to 3 miles the day prior to a run to get our legs revved up and rearing to go. I would reconsider your schedule this week and at least get two light, quick runs in! The best to you no matter what you decide!

  • Erin February 23, 2009, 7:55 pm

    I’ve been meaning to try Stevia. I really need to break my terrible sugar habit.

  • Lea February 23, 2009, 7:55 pm

    Nice…I had tofu for lunch too. I would love to try Stevia. I’ve read about it in the blogworld.

  • Adrianna February 23, 2009, 7:55 pm

    had NO idea stevia came in liquid form, and flavored! how cool 🙂

    good luck this weekend!!!

  • jane February 23, 2009, 7:59 pm

    that liquid stevia looks awesome!

    oh my gosh, i saw an episode of “man vs. wild” today and bear grills STRIPPED down and jumped into freezing water. but the point is, they blurred out the front, but showed his butt in all it’s glory. while he was doing jumping jacks!
    made me think of you haha.

  • katie m February 23, 2009, 8:13 pm

    I’d love to try Stevia. Thanks!

  • susanah February 23, 2009, 8:14 pm generous of u guys. Would be awesome for the lucky person to try it. Personally, i’ve yet to try it..i can’t seem to find stevia in my ‘part’ of the world!*hhmph*

  • kristin point February 23, 2009, 8:33 pm

    i’ve never tried it but it would be nice!

  • fodie818 February 23, 2009, 8:45 pm


  • Brianna February 23, 2009, 9:01 pm

    It would be cool to try one of the flavored Stevias:)

  • rosogirls February 23, 2009, 9:09 pm

    I’ve only tried the packets- the liquid sounds fun! Thanks!

  • MB February 23, 2009, 9:41 pm

    I haven’t tried the liquid… the vanilla sounds yummy!

  • ChickPea February 23, 2009, 10:55 pm

    Ooh…I love the packet form of stevia but have never tried the liquid form. Sounds like an equally wonderful alternative!

  • HangryPants February 23, 2009, 11:55 pm

    I love how you made the tofu cubes so small! More crunchy bits.

    Also, I’ve only had stevia in a powder packet and I did not like it, but I am definitely curious about the liquid.

  • Terry February 24, 2009, 3:26 am

    I would love to win the Stevia. I use sweet n low! Which never is mentioned in any of these blogs.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point February 24, 2009, 4:25 am

    dee – thanks for this advice! i may consider a light run – i think im just going to wait for my aching muscles to chill out first. LOL!

  • Anonymous February 24, 2009, 1:52 pm

    the liquid stevia is great although I use sweetleaf brand. There are around 11 different flavors and you can use them in everything from plain yogrt, water and smoothies. They are terrific!
