we like it cheap & easy :: veggie slice

I have a new infatuation with experimenting with eggs. Eggs have been described to me in the past as the perfect food – rich in essential vitamins, high in protein, and a good source of fats (yes, new research does show these fats to not be so drastically detrimental to our cholesterol levels and arteries … Continue reading

simple slim-down plan

I can say with the utmost certainty that most everyone, at one point or another in their lives, has hit a point of feeling discontent with their appearance. Even if this does make our society sound rather vain, which actually may not be too far from the truth (c’mon, lets not lie here!), we have … Continue reading

fit foods on the go

We are all busy. We are all tired. We are all overworked. (Well, hopefully this is actually just a gross exaggeration on my behalf to create an overly dramatic introduction.) The last thing we want to do is pour more of our finite supply of time and energy (and money!) into eating healthy during the … Continue reading

food commandments revisited

Awhile back, I wrote a post on my “food commandments”, or what, at that time, I thought were important ways to think about food. After I have grown older (okay, only 6 months or so…) and wiser (this one is actually somewhat true, yet I prefer to stay somewhat humble about it), I wanted share … Continue reading

power of the brain : think fit, be fit.

[leave yourself no choice but to run the stairs, and you will] You may have heard someone in passing casually say something along the lines of “fake it to make it!” and thought to yourself, unconvinced, “yeah, right…like I can just wish myself skinny”. Well, while your initial apprehension does hold some weight, it would … Continue reading

protein packed pancakes!

Many of us have probably encountered this unfortunate situation at one time or another : you are craving something which satisfies your uncontrollable desire for carbs without actually really consuming any… And many of you, being the intelligent individuals you are, have also probably come to the unfortunate realization that this is not truly possible… … Continue reading

healthy(er) fried rice

Asian food always seems to be unnecessarily drenched in oil and grease, when it appears that such dishes could most certainly be prepared in a less gluttonous way. I go through phases of craving certain peculiar and specific food dishes, and the other evening, I had an intense and unable-to-be-ignored desire for fried rice. And … Continue reading

healthy(er) peanut butter & jelly breakfast – PB&B

Instead of using highly processed bread and high-fructose corn syrup injected jelly from the store – grab some freshly baked whole grain, seeded bread from a local bakery, all natural peanut butter, and fresh BERRIES to replace that nasty wonder bread and smucker’s jelly. This breakfast will keep you full, keep you healthy and keep … Continue reading

simple seafood cioppino pizza

When faced with the dilemma of what to spend my Saturday evening cooking, I, after much too much consideration in the aisles of Whole Foods , decided to combine two favorites into one simple and original recipe. I absolutely love anything with a tomato-based sauce, I absolutely love seafood, and I absolutely love pizza sans … Continue reading

loaded miso soup

As we (unfortunately, or at least in my mind) approach the winter season, it is often the case that one finds themselves shivering more frequently, and consequently, their body finds itself yearning for something to fill that void of warmth. And because us humans, particularly us Americans, love any chance to convince ourselves we are … Continue reading
