It Looks Like a Quinoa Salad… But It’s NOT!

3WAYS2 Gussy Up Your Hard-Boiled Eggs in the Blink of an Eye!

September 9, 2016

I have some great tips on fun ways to eat hard-boiled eggs, but first, a quick shout-out to my pal Dawn Jackson Blatner, because she inspired this post. I met Dawn at the Fitbloggin’ conference a few months ago, and she had sets of three simple tips and tricks for everything. It was very impressive, and rather brilliant: It’s easy to remember three ideas, and easy to share them, too.

So I devised 3WAYS2, which I’m planning on making a recurring post on this blog. These posts will be devoted to sharing 3 ways that you can make positive changes in regards to your health and weight loss efforts. They may be about Read the rest of this entry »

Halibut with Fig and Caramelized Onion Sauce

July 28, 2016

I haven’t done a recipe post lately, probably because I’ve been traveling, but that changes right now. This recipe involves a fantastic and potentially hard-to-find ingredient: fresh figs.


I love figs, but it’s much more common to find them dried than fresh. That’s because Read the rest of this entry »

Food Photos, Food Photos, Food Photos!

July 14, 2016

I’ve been at my parents’ house in suburban Detroit for over a week now, and it’s been a good time. A hot, humid, good time. Thanks to my relatively new commitment to logging my food on My Fitness Pal (21 days and counting!), I’ve been paying better attention to what I’m eating, and how much. And I’m taking photos of my meals. Wanna see some?
