I woke up this morning and it just felt odd. There’s usually a day or a two a week that we struggle to get out of bed – I honestly don’t know where that came from. It never used to be that way. Morning workouts were so easy, but it’s a new life. This morning […]
Feeding two of us, I can still find it hard to buy just the right amount of produce. My concerns when buying produce are will we eat it all before it goes bad and what will I make with it so that we’re not eating the same thing. Eggplant is a tricky vegetable because our […]
A couple of years ago I had brunch with a friend on Newbury Street. I’m a big proponent of trying new things when dining out because the hope is that the chef knows the perfect preparation and that it’s something I can try to recreate on my own. I tried Shakshuka, also spelled shakshouka at […]
When we talk about healthy lifestyles we sometimes forget that there are aspects that are a luxury, while some things may be argued for as an investment, other things may also be described as a luxury.

I had this whole post planned out. I wrote about 800 words and then deleted most of it. So. Tomorrow’s June. I don’t know where spring went, but I’m really looking forward to gin and tonics and sun and corn on the cob and Kansas City. It’s the end of day 92 into prepping for […]
Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen someone or you yourself have ever consumed a protein shake post-workout as fast as possible like your life depended on it? All of our hands should be up. Or at least most of us. This was something I truly believed seven years ago when I first got started […]
Growing up in the 90s, I think there are a lot of us that think back or sing back to songs and realize that the lyrics are not what we remember. First song that come to mind…Five’s When the Light’s Go Out. Second song – Spice Girls’ Wannabe. Third song – Backstreet Boys’ As Long […]
It’s Mental Health Awareness Month. Mother’s Day is this month. The BBQ’s start. The pools will open. The sun is finally staying around longer than sunrise. I know that what I’m about to talk about isn’t a privilege for everyone for one reason or another. It’s not lost on me when I talk about mental […]
