Weekend Eats: Lucali

I feel like we are going to have to spend one weekend a month in Miami. So far it has worked, and we’ve gotten to do some fun things down there with our friends. This last time, we went to dinner at Lucali, a pizza place in the Sunset Harbor area of Miami Beach. Originally […][...]

Weekend Eats: 3rd & 3rd

Since it was our second weekend as Florida residents we had a bit more flexibility with our schedule. This basically means most of the chores around the new apartment are done and we can start exploring our area a bit more. On Friday, we headed to dinner with my BIL and soon-to-be SIL in our [&helli[...]

Bringing Breakfast Back

I was never big on breakfast. I started being bused to school in fifth grade, which meant early wake ups and not a lot of time to. Enjoy a hot breakfast. Throughout middle school and high school I relied on breakfast bars and fruit….by the time I was in college breakfast was something I had [&[...]

I’m In Need of a Detox

This isn’t the first time I’ve contemplated a detox, but lately I’ve just really been feeling like I need it. I’m cranky, sluggish and feeling a little bloated…like all the time. Maybe it is the stress. Maybe it is all the travel. Whatever it is I need a swift kick in t[...]

Can’t Resist: Spring Runs, Chobani and More

I can’t resist running in this weather. I am literally exhausted with tight quads and an aching back and the mid-60 weather and clear blue skies call to me. I am still getting used to running in my Kinvara 4 from Saucony and because the weather was super perfect I ran a bit longer in […[...]

Exercise As A Threat?

Over the last few years we have acclimated to seeing calories next to our favorite food items. At first it seemed to deter some people, but eventually you just shrugged it off and ate it because you wanted that personal-size Uno pizza that is like a  1,400 calories. (Not me, because I just can̵[...]

It’s Nutrition Month!

When I was working on a campaign for a diet company, we tagged March as the month diets die.  February is just disgusting when it comes to weather and  keeping track of what you are putting in your body has just become tedious. So it seems perfect that March is National Nutrition Month. You are [&[...]

Just Drink Your Tea (or Coffee)

There was a six month period back in college where I grabbed a Red Bull every morning on my way out the door. Somehow I had convinced myself that this was the right direction to take since I hated the taste of coffee. Then there was this super charged drink sold at Duane Reade that […][...]

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Cupcakes

I made them and they were delicious. Going into NYE I had a small problem. My oven has not been working. Well, it is working it just shuts itself off constantly because the heat sensor isn’t working properly, and it makes baking and roasting and really anything done in the oven annoying. So I [...]

A Rude Awakening

I knew deep down that my body wasn’t very happy with me. When I looked in the mirror my hips and thighs just seemed wider. I was exercising, but not as intensely as I had in the past. I mean I hadn’t been to a spin class in probably five months, and last Sunday’s five mile run [&[...]
