breakfast

Last week, I was out in LA for a business trip. If you were curious why I was there, I was shooting a fun little web video for a new phone by TMobile, the myTouch. It’s a pretty cool 4G android phone that is being sold for $49. It’s really easy to learn how to [...]

It is getting steamy in my non-air conditioned apartment. Wanting to avoid adding any heat to my kitchen, I planned for a week of cold breakfasts. Yesterday at Whole Foods, I picked up a new flavor (new to me at least) from Stonyfield’s organic Greek Yogurt line Oikos called Honey Fig. I added 2 tablespoons [...]

I’ve mastered the do or die willpower that it takes to drop 5 lbs in a week.  I feel like it’s gift just as much as it is a weakness.  I have a photoshoot on Wednesday so I’ve been eating very clean for about 1-2 weeks (with the exception of ice cream pie on Easter).  [...]

Sometimes switching up your routine is all you need to become reenergized.  From a new breakfast recipe to a new group exercise class, your challenge before Monday is to add something new to your routine!  Breakfast as you know, is one of the most important meals of the day.  Starting off with something that is [...]

I always buy too many bananas and am looking for things to put them in by the end of the week.  Last night’s concoction was amazing and simple!  I used my banana to make healthy little muffins to satisfy my lingering sweet tooth, but I think these would be better if baked on a cookie sheet. [...]
