This weekend was low key and just what I needed. After an indulgent Nashville trip, this was my chance to lay low before heading to Miami. Friday night I checked out the Gilt City Warehouse sale. It was a zoo.┬áThe past 2 Gilt sales I’ve been to, I’ve paid for tickets and waited in a […]

On Christmas, I gifted myself a day off from working out. To be honest, I intended to go for a run to get out of the house but it was slightly raining and just above freezing temperature outside. I did not bring my running rain jacket and I did not want to do a strength […]

I invited my dad and sister to come over for dinner and was excited to make something using the ingredients I bought at the local Farmers Market.

I made Spicy Orange Chicken Skewers and my mom made a delicious cauliflower side that taste like a nutty rice pilaf without the carbs! Seriously, it was delicious and I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before. For the chicken, I […]

This weekend was a rare summer occasion. I stayed in the city! The weather looked awful and I had a ton of packing to do. Friday night, Roomie and I went out for sushi on Newbury Street. We were sat right away outdoors which never happens at Snappy Sushi. It was refreshingly chilly, a nice […]

It’s that time again when I finally hook up my digital camera and share what I’ve been having for dinner these days. I’ve been pretty busy and loving simple recipes that are easy to calculate the calories since I’m writing down everything I eat for 10 days. I don’t have recipes because I usually do […]
