Vegetarian

I always complain that Boston has no good specifically healthy restaurants. While I still think that is true, if you drive 20 minutes outside the city center they do exist. My buddy, Sara, and I made a lunch date to finally try Root, a vegan restaurant, located in Allston yesterday. The drive took about 15 […]

Peanut Butter is one of those good for you foods that is also a trigger food for many people. It’s borderline addictive, right? While visiting Hilton Head Health, I learned a new recipe that brings the yummy peanut butter flavors to a guilt-free snack with 25% fewer calories but twice the volume. The recipe is […]

I used to hate the saying, “comfort food.” It is an overused term on a local TV show in Boston, given to just about any dish that appears to be high in fat and calories. Why not just call it food made by a person who could care less what you put in your mouth […]

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 […]

Read part 1 of my StitchFix Luna Vacay here.  Thursday Brittany, Nicole, Julie, Gina and I woke up early for a 6:30am fitness class at The Daily Method, a barre studio based out of San Francisco that I had been meaning to try for awhile and was within close proximity to our house. As you […]

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 […]

Blogging is a lot like reality TV. We (bloggers) share personal details that you don’t need to know about, you probably don’t care about, but for some reason, many people find the mundane things to be most interesting like what I ate for dinner or what I wore to a party. Here are a few […]
