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 LA, I made it a point to see my favorite fitness ladies, Katrina and Karena of Tone It Up. Kat and I used to make YouTube videos in Boston before she headed out for the west coast. As luck would have it, they were having a cocktail party in Manhattan Beach for their [...]
