Gluten Free Savory Baking Powder Biscuits

Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe it is already the middle of the week?  How beautiful are Wednesdays??

Yesterday I mentioned on Facebook that Michelle and I decided to head out for a run…..on pavement….around the water at a local park down the street from the ‘rents house.  The skies had cleared, my nikes were laced up and my workout leggings were on that allow my butt to look the cutest it’s ever looked and I was ready to rock.

I am sure you remember that I suck at cardio and never push myself as far or as fast as I should because I end up feeling sick.  I really, really want to enjoy running, so I figured I will get myself slowly into the running by the whole run, walk, run method and pray to god that this works for me.

Yesterday Michelle and I made it about a mile straight of non stop running before we needed to walk.

Here comes my “rant”.

I am a healthy person.  I eat as clean as clean can be and my poor little lungs are not having fun when I run.  Why the heck is this?!

My heart is with my weights.  I love lifting and I love walking, so I end up daily walking the dreadmill at a fast pace and on a steep incline to burn the buns off!  But for some strange reason I keep putting the idea of being a “good” runner in my mind and really want to master this.

So we have a goal.  Our goal is to run the full way around the trail {10 miles} non stop by the end of June.  Do you think this is doable?!  When I have a goal I keep my eye on the prize :)

After my morning trot, I went back to my Parents place, did work online and watched my mom whip up some Savory Gluten Free Baking Powder Biscuits!!

I decided to stay for dinner as Ryan was busy, so she made a tasty vegetable soup and we partnered it with some biscuits.  Growing up we would always have soup with Buttermilk Biscuits, and these are even MORE tasty and Allergy Friendly :)

    Hey Kris,

    I know you CAN run the 10-mile trail! What a great goal and you gave yourself enough time to work up to meet the goal~YOU are going to ROCK it! When I am am training for a longer run, I start out small and build a mile or so each week. Also, during each run, I envision myself running the goal distance I have in mind. I think it is important to remember to stay relaxed in your mind & body~not to have tension~and just imagine how good the exercise is for you mentally & physically and that it is WONDERFUL to have the opportunity to move your body!

    Keep us posted on your progress!

    I love savoury biscuits with soup or stew – I will definitely be trying these!

    10 miles is a long way girl, but I know you can do it!! I’ve started the Couch Potato to 5K program which is a really good starting point for a beginner runner. Around my area there are lots of running groups that get together a couple of nights per week to run. It’s great motivation to keep working at your goals and to meet lots of fun new people! My goal is to run a 5K in the Fall.

    Happy Hump Day!

    Hi Liz,

    Thank you so much for the wonderful comment!! You are so inspiring and I will take your advice by adding a mile each week. I think a strong visualization session will be in order for me to see myself reaching that goal with a strong body and free flowing lungs 😉 LOL!

    Have a great day!

    Hey Doll! What a great way to start running by joining a group like this! I think a friend here on the blog told me about this Couch Potato to 5k! That is awesome! Keep up the great work my friend, I love the steps you are taking!


  5. says

    YAYAYAYAY! What a fabulous goal my friend!! You can do it!!! Enjoy the journey, this is the best part seeing yourself grow….same with me 😐

    I can understand your frustration with not being able to run because of your lungs. I was there too! But you’ll be amazed at how quickly your lungs improve. I’ve gotten to a point now where it’s my body that slows me down, my lungs could go forever! That’s even MORE frustrating?! The biscuits look delicious!

  7. says

    You conquer everthing you set your mind to so I know you will do this too!

    I used to liken running to watching paint dry hahaha. I know what you mean about your lungs struggling to breathe when running and not on the dreadmaster (I’m officially stealing that word from you!). When you’re running you are truly “carrying” your full bodyweight down the road (vs the easier method of “bouncing” on the treadmill) so it puts a greater demand on your heart & lungs to provide more fuel/oxygen to your body. Keep at it and it’ll get easier as your heart/lungs get stronger.

    It’s a huge boost to have someoone to run with like Michelle or running group. Another thing that can help you commit to running 3 times/week is to sign up for a race event. It used to give me a purpose and keep me focused. And it’s an incredible rush when you cross that finish line with hundreds of other people all achieving the same goal and everyone is cheering you in! Go Kris Go!

    Ohh girl I gave up on running a long time ago. My heart too is with weights and I tried to get into running but I always ended up with this killer pain in my chest that was unbearable. I do have some kind of minor issue with one of my heart valves so that might be the reason for the pain. I do it for cardio but it’s more of a light jog then anything else but if I overexert myself too much on the cardio then my weights will suffer :( Love the biscuits 😀

  9. says

    You can be the healthiest person in the world, but if you aren’t up on the cardio train, your lungs will kill! But I even have what I call my “running” lungs and muscles. If I’ve been injured, or just not running as much as usual I’ll still be doing cardio, but getting back to my running endurance is rough! Oh, and you will DEFINITELY be cranking out that 10 miles by June!

  10. says

    Thanks girl!! I totally value all your tips and inspiration :) I do believe that my “running lungs” will come really soon 😉


  11. says

    Thanks for the inspiration love!!! See, weights can own a girls heart, right? I know your heart valve issue just give you extra love in your heart thats all 😉 I think a light jog is better than no jog!!


  12. says

    Love you Donna!!! I love your comments and your openness :)

    This makes so much sense that running on pavement is a lot harder than on the dreadmill……ugh….dreadmill bores me to tears 😉 I will take your advice and do the 3 times a week and I am so excited to share the results with everyone!! hehe


  13. says

    Leanne….you always brighten my day and give me that motivation I need to get my a$$ out there on the streets {to run ;)} Keep inspiring me and others!!! I will work my little lungs up so quickly, I can feel it!


  14. says

    dont worry im not a runner either … but for us nonrunners a mile is an amazing accomplishment and you should be proud for pushing yourself to do that :) sometimes you just have to do what works for you!

    Just stumbled on your site. I am making the scones and will make these as well. Many thanks. I have trained up for various distances and would only advise that you follow a plan. Do not increase your distance (on your longest run each week….i ran 2 short and 1 long run per week during training) by more than 1 mile per week. If you are accustomed to some form of running/jogging and follow a plan to slowly increase your distance you will not only achieve it but you will come out of it injury free (fingers and toes crossed) also. Best wishes!

  16. says

    Thanks for the comment Julie! Please tell me how you love the scones and the biscuits!! They are so very tasty :)

    Awesome, i will take your advise and really only increase it by less than a mile per week. See, without my friends here I would have no idea what I was doing!
