Food

Forget soul food. This is spirit food!

A while back I decided that I was going to assign people “spirit foods” based on their personalities. For example, I said that I was chicken because I eat it all the time, it’s versatile, has lots of protein (since I’m into the muscle thing) and can be healthy. My nickname at work was even […] Read more…

No Cheese Fun

Last week I was on a mission to not spend money on anything extra (i.e. things I didn’t REALLY need.) However, during my Saturday grocery excursion I forgot two key items: eggs and cheese. So by Thursday morning I was down to one egg and NO cheese. Instead of heading to Publix to re-stock, I […] Read more…

Get Your Veggie Frittata On

I’m not lazy. I’m busy. There’s a difference! So if there’s a way I can make ANYTHING more efficient, I do it. Especially cooking. If it’s quick, easy and healthy, it’s probably on my roster of things I eat on a regular basis. So I don’t know why I never thought to make a veggie […] Read more…

How do your partner’s eating habits affect you?

The first order of business: photo re-cap of the weekend. Had another boot camp this weekend. Two new recruits came. Sweat was sweated. Groans were groaned. Puke was puked. All in all, good times. Then after the boot camp we gathered at my parents’ house for a pool party. Unfortunately I cannot divulge the details […] Read more…

No Cook Food Options

I originally wrote the title as “No Cock Food Options.” Interpret that how you will. Anyway… My feelings for today: Ugh. I’ve been really busy at work, and that stress seeps into my life outside of work. I feel like I don’t even have time to breathe. Part of the problem is that I have […] Read more…

How to make (sort of) healthy vending machine choices.

Aaahh…the vending machine. Both friend and foe. I think anyone who works in an office knows what I’m talking about. (Apologies for all the crap phone pictures that are to follow.) It’s 3 or 4 p.m. and you’ve got the munchies. You don’t want to wait till you get out of work to eat. Or […] Read more…

Glorifying Gluttony

So, I don’t really watch much TV. But a couple of days ago my boyfriend turned on the boob tube and the show Man vs. Food was on. I’ve never seen this show before. People might think I’m a snob for saying this, but it kind of grossed me out. For those who haven’t heard […] Read more…

When Food Becomes Fodder

I am tragically American. Not that there’s anything wrong with being American. But let’s face it. Some of our habits suck. Like the way we view and treat food. Completely oblivious or hyper-analytical. Quantity instead of quality. Distraction versus pleasure. Generally speaking, I think we’re lacking in food culture. Americans are always in a rush […] Read more…

Black Bean Burgers!

So, I’m not a vegetarian. But every now and then I start thinking about all those cows and their sad, glossy eyes and I feel like a real asshole for eating them. (Honestly I barely eat red meat, but still.) So this weekend I tried my hand at something new: home-made black bean burgers. Yeah, […] Read more…

The Incredible Bulk

I’m busy. You’re busy. We’re all busy! But I’m like, really freakin’ busy. Not that I’m trying to one-up you on busyness or anything, I’m just saying. And when you’re really busy, eating healthy is an effort. It requires planning. Fortunately that’s one of my strong suits. So every Sunday/Monday I bulk cook some of […] Read more…
