Welcome to this week’s Friday’s Food & Fitness! I have some exciting stuff to tell you about, including Lorna Jane’s Active Nation Day!
I had two major food highlights this week! The first were this amazing stuffed eggplants. I got the recipe from Skinnytaste.
I used chicken sausage for these peppers and while I really like chicken sausage, I don’t think I chose the best flavor. I got peppers in mine and I wish I had just had plain because they added a little Latin or Mexican flavor.
Plus they were so easy to make! Just grilled chicken, grilled eggplant, marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil. Delish!

You know I’m a huge fan not just of fitness but of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. I move as part of my life, not just during the one hour a day I workout. I’m so excited to tell you about Lorna Jane’s Active Nation Day! Active Nation Day was created by Lorna Jane in 2012 to inspire women to live an active life.

I’m always seeing awesome inspirational quotes from Lorna Jane! I follow them on social media and they sent me this cute journal that’s packed full of motivational sayings.
I LOVE eggplant but I developed an allergy to it in my adulthood 🙁 Sometimes I want to try it again to see what happens (with a Benadryl close by!) because I ate eggplant parmesan all the time growing up – It was my fav!
I had never heard of the LJ active nation day! Thanks for sharing – I’m a litttle upset there’s not one in Chicago but I already have a date planned with Amy from Long Drive Journey so maybe we can make one ourselves 🙂
