My Favorite Breakfast

May 6, 2014

I used to be a peanut butter toast kind of girl.  Only because it was quick and also portable.  During my internship I needed something I could grab and take with me for a one hour commute. But now that I’m in an office and also have a shorter commute, I have the time to […]

Giving Up on Superfoods

April 24, 2014

Kale. Avocadoes. Goji Berries. Chia Seeds Quinoa. These foods are hot trends because at one time someone dubbed them a superfood.  What exactly is a superfood?  Does it impart super human powers?  Give us spidey senses?  Help us fly?

Feta Asparagus Salad

April 16, 2014

When I think spring produce, I think asparagus. My mom didn’t really make this much when I was a kid, but once we discovered how delicious it is steamed, it became a regular.  Steamed, roasted, sautéed, and grilled.  Doesn’t matter.  Just don’t give it to me canned.  PLEASE. The idea for this salad came when […]

Spring Fitness Favorites

March 31, 2014

At the turn of every season, I’m always looking at fashion.  Not the typical fashion you may think.  Others may be dreaming of days with sandals, maxi dresses, and light weight trench coats.  While I love all of that, I’m usually daydreaming of running shorts, sports sunglasses, and cute yoga tanks.  Warm weather, please stay!

Favorite Things: Meditation Edition

March 26, 2014

Starting on this 40 day meditation challenge was really like starting any healthy habit. I had to decide when to start. How long I wanted to do it for. Find a place to meditate. Then begin. It was awkward in the beginning.  Even though we practiced meditation during my yoga teacher training and I’ve done […]
