I roasted my first turkey for Thanksgiving and successfully cooked an entire holiday feast! I feel like this should be some sort of life milestone. While it was only for 3 people, I didn’t burn, under-cook or over season anything.  I bought the 10-lb turkey on Tuesday at Whole Foods. Not really knowing what to […]

I have a slight obsession with dates. What some say that they are too sweet for them, but for me they make for a perfect ingredient that transforms anything into tasting more like dessert without added sugar! Roomie requested more homemade granola bars this week so I decided to try combining my favorite recipe with […]

Someone on YouTube asked me to post a video on what I eat in a typical day. I have tried to do this here on my blog but find it difficult to keep up. Similarly, I have trouble writing down what I eat. I get hungry, I eat. I forget to take a picture in […]

Novak Djokovic and Sabine Lisiki have both been seen a recent surge in number of victories, and both are crediting their gluten-free diets.  Although you may not be familiar with their names, you surely have heard of Superbowl MVP Drew Brees who is also gluten free.  Many of you who read my blog, know Tina […]

Every Monday, as most of you know, I make sure to start my day off right with a healthy breakfast.  I’m still obsessed with the TIU Protein Pancake (recipe).  It satisfies me and doesn’t give me the carbo-load hangover I get when I have too many carbs in the morning.  It’s super easy to make as well.
