Meal prepping doesn’t just have to include food in tupperware containers. It can also mean stuff in pretty muffin tins that you can grab with one hand and race out the door and have a meal at your fingertips so you don’t pass out from hunger and low blood sugar on the subway (true story). […]

I’m halfway through with this vegan challenge. How have I been surviving? Vegetables and nuts. And delicious recipes like these vegan burgers. I’ve been eating hella avocados straight from the shell, big pots of roasted vegetables over rice or grains, and a lot of Mexican food, which incorporates a lot of vegetables and is surprising […]
My nephews headed back to school this week, as many other kids have done or are prepping to in the coming weeks. For me, it brings back memories of new clothes, Trapper Keepers, and lunchboxes stuffed with mom’s homemade sandwiches.
Mmmm beet hummus. With roasted sweet peppers.
This. This is what divides our household. Vegetables. Greens to be specific.
I’m back from a week of wine, chocolate, sandwiches, goose, eggnog and French Fries in Florida. Now it’s time for a reset!
The only thing getting me through this week is avocado toast.

When you are running late for your out of town excursion and you will not be satisfied with a bag of Funyuns or a hot dog from the Gulf station on exit 73 again, you need to make a quick snack before you hit the road.
Feeling guilty after all of those arepas?
After staying up until 2:30 AM last night writing (yes, my computer worked after dropping it on my foot), I needed vitamins.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of the holiday—or, just a coincidence—I made a fairly, sorta, kinda green sandwich over the weekend.
In the drab days of winter, I have to remind myself to create my own sunshine.
One more from the homemade apple cognac butter recipe box.
The upcoming New Year got me thinking about goals for 2014:
When someone calls you names—own it!
The weekends are for slowing things down.
Vacation over. Back to reality.
I should never cook drunk. Cooking under the influence is unlikely to produce tasty results.
What a difference a day makes.
Rating: Last spring, E and I used to have coffee every morning together outside on our patio. It was our quality time to talk about our day, plan upcoming trips and share news about our friends before we got ready for work and headed out to the train together.
Rating: E and I–well, rather, E–are still trying to shed the winter weight before we go to Miami in a week. E is being more diligent about eating right than I am. Every time I suggested a sandwich to E, he screams like a girl on a diet in the high school cafeteria as to […]
E and I are planning a trip to Miami in a few weeks, partly for work, partly for play. This will involve time on the beach in very little clothing, which will expose parts of our body that may not be in the tightest form.
Rating: E deserved a break from taking care of me all week. Poor thing hadn’t seen his friends, hadn’t gone out to dinner or drinks since I came down with the flu. Since I was back to work, E wanted to reclaim his social life. “I’m having Scotch tonight!” he declared.
