One of my high school best friends who lives in LA is lactose intolerant so she is always up for vegan restaurant requests. Last time we visited Cafe Gratitude, and on Saturday we checked out Sage Vegan Bistro in Culver City. We [...]

Ever since I can remember, I’ve loved Cool Whip. It was a perfect summer treat with a few strawberries as a light dessert. When I learned how bad it really was for you, filled with chemicals, I stopped eating it. But alas after tasting the whipped coconut cream topping at the vegan ice cream sundae [...]

While I have a delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie in my book, Barry’s Bootcamp also has their own recipe and man it is good. I have a handful of readers who hate bananas and this smoothie recipe is smooth and creamy without using any! Under 300 calories, it’s the perfect meal after a morning [...]

Per my viewers request, I shot a grocery store haul YouTube video before I left for Los Angeles at a large Super Market. Within one minute of walking inside, we were asked to stop by an employee! I asked who I could talk to for permission and when the worker couldn’t locate the authority figure, [...]

I woke up Friday morning at 5 am with pain in my right hip from being too tight. I knew I had to take a break from Bar and get in some yoga. At Bar, they say my hips are tight because I’m a runner but I haven’t really run farther than 1-2 miles in [...]
