How do you balance going with the flow to planning out every detail?
This seems to be the struggle every day for me. After getting engaged, the past two months have seem like a blur.Read More
I’ve just finished the first week of my new job, and I can certainly say I’m exhausted.
The first week of work always feels like the first day of school – you have to scope out where/who to eat lunch with, develop relationships with your team and co-workers, navigate the bus or commute, and keep up your grades and work.Read More
We’re still holding on to that last bit of September before the leaves turn crisp and it’s light jacket weather.
The autumn season always brings upon a time of reflection for me. As I was in yoga today my teacher talked about this and how the time on our mat can be used for a time of reflecting on the year and thinking about what we are grateful for.Read More
Every Rosh HaShana (the Jewish New Year), my mom would make a honey cake. While this certainly isn't her exact recipe, and I've created variations, it's a tradition to make.
Sometimes I still think I am in school mode and consider September the start of the year, even though I've been in the "working world" for over 3 years and know January is where it's at.Read More
It's been raining in NYC and my body feels exhausted (we recently got a Peloton and the addiction is real).
I'm too hot in my apartment or freezing from the AC to feel like I actually want to cook but want to share another healthy delicious recipe.Read More
While I'm all about healthy eating and a balanced diet, I was listening to a podcast this week and a line really struck me- "the start of your health journey starts with addressing your emotions."Read More
It's be I need to eat the whole brownie pan weeks.
While nothing in particular happened, it just felt like a slow, muggy, sad week. But what I've learned that while eating a whole pan of brownies feels good in the moment, the next moment isn't quite so sweet.Read More
While I certainly don't make cakes often, I jump at the chance when I can.
There's just something about being covered in buttercream and delivering someone a delicious confection. While most of my treats err on the healthier side, a birthday treat is just that- a treat, so full dairy, sugar, and gluten are welcome.Read More
These cookies came and went just as fast as the middle of the week 4th of a July.
Last year I baked two pies, but with the recent heat wave in NYC, there was so just no way- so I went with an alternative, cookies inspired by some red, white, and blue (ok maybe not blue).
This week in my world of wellness, a big focus has been on mental health- which is something I feel personally strong about. With recent current events (RIP Anthony Bourdain) more and more companies have been wondering, what can they do?Read More
I've returned from Idaho with a bag of rhubarb. So naturally it's been going in everything- aka smoothies and these pie bars.
Strawberry and rhubarb is the perfect sweet and tart combination- similar to the balance you find in life.Read More
Ever since my eczema came back with a vengeance, I've been reading about ways to heal in a holistic approach.
I knew off the bat a constant stream of steroid cream wasn't going to do. After seeing my current dermatologist and being prescribed, flaxseed oil, fish oil, reishi mushrooms, nettle, and probiotics, I did some digging.
As I'm sitting in the AC post sun-bathing in Charleston, I'm truly craving these meatballs after my mom made a killer pecan pesto. Though I'd make these tonight for dinner, my arms, back, and abs are so sore from the boxing class cookie monster and I did yesterday.Read More
As cookie monster has turned soul-cycle protein obsessed monster, I find these protein bites going faster and faster. These delicious bites are the perfect snack when hanger hits and have just enough sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth.Read More
Slow down, you're moving too fast..
On rainy days, there's something soothing about listening to Jack Johnson- and in particular this week this line resonates with me- aside from all the terrible rain we've been having in NYC.Read More
Ok, confession, I'm totally on the soul-cycle train- or bike I should say.
I always loved going to fitness classes (even though I hate what they do to my wallet), but spin has been the current obsession due to cookie-monster, who should better be re-named, protein-bite-only-rice-cakes-please monster's liking to the class.Read More
