At the moment I am laying out and reading one of the most hilarious books I’ve ever read; If you’re looking for a funny read, I suggest this one! It’s about a women who was thrown off a cruise ship by her greedy and quite idiotic husband. He meant for her to die, obviously, but… Continue reading Is Your Diet Lacking Iodine?
The May issue of Nutrition Action Newsletter included a very interesting article about green tea. Do you drink it? I’ve never been a huge fan since coffee has always been my hot drink of choice, but every once in a while a nice cup of green tea is perfect. I especially love brewing the tea then chilling it… Continue reading The Benefits (and Non-Benefits) of Green Tea
A couple weeks ago (yes, I’m behind on posting this!) I had my friend Janan over for dinner. Janan is also a dietitian, so whenever she comes over we try to make healthy meals together. It’s always fun cooking as we sip on wine (or in my case, a cold beer!) and catch up on… Continue reading Lazy, Yet Delicious Meals
Have you heard? The food pyramid is getting taken over by a dinner plate! I read this article yesterday, published by the New York Times, and I was super excited.

I always had a hard time focusing on just one part of their diet, as I often felt obligated to make everything better in just one visit. I assumed they would never come back after the first meeting so I… Continue reading Small Changes = Big Rewards
Today’s post is all about my favorite combination; Truvia + Frank’s Red Hot, mixed together into a beautiful sauce. It’s amazing. Ok, I’m full of it. But really, these are two products I couldn’t live without. We’ll start with Frank’s Red Hot. Isn’t it….gorgeous?! And look, only a mere 190 mg sodium per tiny teaspoon. I suppose when… Continue reading Truvia and Red Hot
Several weeks ago a reader asked me to explain my exercise routine and another reader asked me which of the Exercise TV videos I like to use. Today I have decided to dedicate a post to answering these questions. Because…everyone wants to workout like ME…right?! Below are the pieces of equipment that I use for… Continue reading My Exercise “Routine”
I won a yogurt maker about a year ago on a blog giveaway. It wasn’t until just the other day that I finally tried to use it. I had thrown away the directions (oops!) but found them online, thankfully. The directions were fairly straight forward, but I was annoyed to find out I had to purchase… Continue reading Make My Own Yogurt? Not So Much
Check out my first You Tube video!! I’m posting this one as a test, really. I’d love for you to tell me what you think, and if you had any troubles viewing the video.
