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,…

Sweet Tooth

There are many particular characteristics that define me, one of them being my incredibly huge sweet tooth. I LOVE cheesecake, I LOVE ice cream, I LOVE cookies, and most importantly I LOVE CHOCOLATE. Yes I love chocolate, but that doesn’t mean I going to eat any random fake chocolate from the dollar store. On day’s…

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….

Outside That Box

This is not your typical “self-acceptance” speech. Instead, is a plead to fulfill my own personal expectations. Don’t get me wrong, people should love and accept who they represent as human beings; and most importantly, we should accept people for what they represent in mind and spirit, rather than what their bodies represent. There are…

The Practice of Self-Love

I’m sure that most of us can recall the saying that we must love ourselves before being able to love others. “A very interesting phylosophy” I used to think, without giving it much thought. At some point in our lives, people ask us if we love ourselves, and I would dare to say that 90…
