Goals (Yes, A Few Months Late)

Goals (Yes, A Few Months Late)

For 2012 I set two goals. Since I was a dormant blogger at the time, I didn’t get to share them with you all at the time. I only set two but they are two things that I felt were important but hadn’t found the motivation to implement. Funny how turning the page on the … Continue reading

Ice Cream Cake Adventures

I personally could eat tofu straight out of the package. Sure, it’s not too flavorful this way but I really like the texture. But I recognize that for as much as I love tofu in its blandest form, adding some flavor makes it that much better. And it’s not overly time consuming, either. The longest … Continue reading

Avoiding The Corporate Weight Gain

Avoiding The Corporate Weight Gain

You know what happens every day at about 9:30 in my office? The smell of popcorn wafts into my cubicle from the lobby. Oh buttery goodness. I eat a fair amount of popcorn but that popcorn comes from my air popper, dosed only in coconut oil and salt. I’ve seen what goes into that machine … Continue reading

Opposites attract, right? While the above is definitely not a picture of me and Will, we are just as opposite as our dog Anni and her “boyfriend” Charlie. When we met, I thought we were the complete opposite, and struggled to list one thing that we had in common. But something about our differentness made … Continue reading

Finally – A Good Run!

Finally – A Good Run!

Man oh man. Today has been a million miles a minute and I’m only now slowing down. Currently, I’m plowing down on some delicious fuel. Tofu, sautéed zucchini and sushi rice cooked in coconut oil. I talked about it earlier this week but coconut oil really does improve the flavor of everything it touches. Before I tried it, I … Continue reading

Roasted Lemon Chickpeas and Couscous

Roasted Lemon Chickpeas and Couscous

Let’s talk about lemons. Giant lemons. One of the nice things about Southern California is the abundance of citrus – abnormally large citrus in this case. Our neighbors brought over a bag of lemons and oranges recently and I’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to use this bad boy. So I put together a … Continue reading
