Summer Drinks

It’s literally summer and I’m so excited! In between pool parties, beach outings, and cookouts, I’ve been recollecting the best items to make my activities worth while. One of my top concerns was getting drinking cups that would make the “drinking” feasible. In the wildest parties, glass cups are a no-no; while plastic ones are…

No More Tap

Water consumption has always been a hot topic among health enthusiasm, self-aware people, and even politicians. Many countries, including Norway and France, spend a great deal to provide the highest quality water for their citizens, taking care of sanitation and the protection of the groundwater system. In the United States, the situation is a little…

Little Italy In My Kitchen

You may recall a blog post where I discussed my crazy obsession with olive oil. I love the scent, its great benefits for your health (weight management, lower cholesterol, and improved cardiovascular function), hair and skin (for natural and effective moisture), and how amazingly tasty it can be. I also addressed that many supermarket brands…

The No BS Utensils

New year, new stuff for my kitchen. If you have been following my blog for a while, you may recall my crazy obsession with kitchen utensils. When I was in college, I was obsessed with eating healthy at home (sorry, I meant dorm). This meant that I had to juggle a low budget, healthy meals,…

I Smell Olives

Today I’m coming to you with one of my greatest obsessions: olive oil. I use olive oil in all my foods, salads, and I even to cook. On top of all, it makes a wonderful hot oil hair mask and even a facial moisturizer when the cold weather staves your face dry. Apart from all…

Butter Me Up

I have a confession to make… Yes I’m a health junkie, but I’m also a butter junkie… that’s right, I’m obsessed with butter. I love the taste, how it melts in my mouth, and how it smells. I also love bread, meaning that a new jar of butter along with Italian bread fresh out of…

Keeping it fresh 

One of my greatest pet peeves is messy food storage. Most of the foods we buy come in some sort of plastic bag or container (chips, nuts, seeds, cereal, salad bags, cheese… you name it). And as we all know, when these are not perfectly sealed after use, you end up with food that spoils…

Food for dad 

Father’s Day is finally tomorrow, and apart from getting little presents here and there, I wanted to do something special. See, I like food, and I have a mini obsession with buying kitchen tools that I’ll never use;  however, as contradicting it may sound: I don’t like cooking. I avoid the kitchen at all costs,…

My Burger Nightmare

We all know the importance of maintaining a healthy diet. I may not be a vegan goddess; however, I’m mindful of the things I eat. I dissed cow milk for organic soy milk, I prefer to have a protein smoothie than to eat pancakes for breakfast, and I resource to stevia to sweeten my drinks….

Grind Baby Grind

As we all know, gourmet salts and spices come in whole sizes. Meaning, that exquisite cooking involves some little extra processing along the way. I have a very hectic life/schedule; therefore, I have found myself trying to juggle cooking at home (to save money) while also trying to save time (time is money people!). I…
