I have to laugh when I think of the old me, back when I didn't care to save time cooking and I'd casually cook risotto for an hour on a week night. A glass of wine in one hand, a wooden spoon in the other, cooking a meal at the end of the day was… Continue reading Five Tips to Help You Save Hours in the Kitchen
Hi, there! How are you? I hope this finds you well. It’s be a long time! And a lot’s happened around here over the last two years or so. So much that honestly I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to make it back to writing this blog again… in fact, it’s still a… Continue reading I’m Back! And Here to Help You Find Your Energy.
I watched maybe four episodes of "Chopped" last night. It may have been a bit much... because when I just went to the kitchen to make dinner, I created my own little mystery basket. Except instead of exotic or ridiculous ingredients, mine were things in the fridge that are about to go bad... I had… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day Spinach Pesto Pasta
I'm a bit a news junkie (journalism major here) and in particular I eat up anything related to health/nutrition/food. My little New York Times "recommended for you" section is chock full of it.

The food we eat gets digested and absorbed and used to make new cells, tissues, stomach lining, blood, skin, hair… Continue reading I Believe…
Let me start by saying that this started innocently with a smoothie. And then I got curious. So I ordered a juicer on Amazon. I got a few well-respected opinions.... wait, this reminds me of something David Wolfe (raw foodist and superfood freak) said in class when he was asked: "What do you think is best… Continue reading Green Juice
Green juice (that's right, you heard me) is on next week's blogging agenda. Here's a video clip to set the scene. Maybe it will whet your palate? Who am I kidding, I hope it just makes you laugh. I bring you Jim Carey as The Juice Man....
I remember sitting down to dinner when we were kids and my Mom asking each of us: "What did you learn in school today?" And we'd say, "I don't know." I'm not sure how this scene played out in your house. I imagine most experienced something similar. I can't help but think back to those… Continue reading What I Learned At School This Weekend
Saturday, I started my classes at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. I'm officially back in school to get my certification as a nutritional health counselor. I'm so excited about what's in store for this year. So there I was Saturday morning headed to the first day of school and I felt like… Continue reading Inspired.
With all this rain we've had in Dallas (day 5 now), all I can think about is my bed and soup. Where are you sun? Oh, how I miss you.
