This week I’m finally moving back into my own apartment! For the past month, I’ve been living out of a few suitcases, eating most of my meals out or on the go and trying to productively work in various coffee shops. I’ve tried to keep my schedule as regular as possible but one major difference [...]

Since I am a nomad without a kitchen, most of my meals have been premade. I tried Hail Caesar Shaker from Whole Foods yesterday for lunch. This was my second shaker from the “Health Starts Here” line. At a conference this past fall, I found out that the Whole Foods diet is anti olive oil [...]

While in California for work, I was able to meet up with one of my college roommates, Cher! After the Tone It Up Cocktail Party in Manhattan Beach, I hopped in my rental and drove down for an overnight visit. In the morning, we took a long walk and explored the town a little bit. [...]

I’ve been preaching recently about why you should add more protein to your diet. However, since I feel like a broken record as of late, I wanted to share with you some testimonials from my blogger friends and blog readers. One of my favorite recipe bloggers is Cara Lyons from Cara’s Cravings. Her Pinterest board [...]

Despite having graduated college in 2006, the end of August will always remind me of pre-season soccer practices and back to school preparation. In college, I did not play a sport and had to stay fit on my own. Not quite comfortable at the school gym, I would work out in my dorm room. I [...]
