I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! Mine was very quiet and nice, and full of good food and quality time with my parents, because, due to the pandemic, it was just the three of us. Oh, and JJ. Can’t forget about JJ! Here he is licking his lips as my mom bastes the turkey.
I’ve been making good progress in my quest to lose weight, and I refuse to let a food-based holiday derail everything. That’s why I Read the rest of this entry »

Happy 10-year blogging anniversary to me! I started this website in September 2010, and in the past 10 years, I’ve shared my story in 1,568 posts. I’ve had 1.2 million page views. (Whoa!)
I’m incredibly proud that I’ve stuck by this website, and have now reached a solid decade of focusing on my health. But the truth is that I’m not in a very good place right now, health-wise, and I don’t feel like celebrating. Read the rest of this entry »

Writing my last two posts were like getting punched in the nuts and the throat. I really need some good news and some levity. Thankfully, this post has both.
First, the good news: I’LL BE ON THE RADIO TOMORROW! I was asked just a few hours ago, and of course I said yes. I’ll be a guest on the “The Burn: The Bowflex Radio Show,” and I’m going to be discussing Read the rest of this entry »

I was wandering an unfamiliar Trader Joe’s looking for the dog treats (for my main girl Maude) when I came across a positively bewitching product: BACON JAM! Is this a real thing?! It sure is!
It took me all of 10 seconds to decide to purchase it. That’s roughly the amount of time needed for me to Read the rest of this entry »

How about we all start our weeks with a game? How about a game involving a crockpot? How about a game where you guess what’s in a crockpot? Sounds good to me!
WHAT’S IN THE CROCKPOT?

It’s a proven, scientific fact – free vegetables taste better. So I’ve been eating like a king all week long, because my friend Andie, who works for the Los Angeles Salad Company, gifted me with a ton of extra veggies that she had brought home for a work project. One day, I halved 2 pounds of brussels sprouts…
…and roasted them until Read the rest of this entry »

Raw brussels sprouts are definitely trendy right now. I’ve seen raw brussels sprout dishes on TV cooking shows and online, and food companies are getting onboard. I’ve only seen brussels sprouts packaged whole before, but in the past couple months, I’ve seen them shaved or sliced – perfect for raw applications – in a bunch of stores, including Trader Joe’s and Target, where I picked up this Green Giant bag:
Brussels sprouts are in the cabbage family, so when Read the rest of this entry »
