I try really hard not to pick up ‘fast food’ very often, but as a mom of two young children, I have to be honest…there are days when the only way we’re all getting fed is if I grab something quick.

UPDATE — I’d likely to congratulate Adah and Brookefor being the two winners. Congratulations, ladies!! If I could target any one part of my body to tone up overnight, it would definitely be my abs and core. But honestly, I cannot stand resistance work.

I’m going to be honest, folks. I get up in just enough time to get showered, dressed, and to work. Sitting down to breakfast is not an option. I need something that is healthy, quick, and simple.

Pupus. Starters.  Whatever you call them…I just love appetizers. I’m one of those people who will happily go to a restaurant and make a meal out of appetizers only. The problem is, so many restaurants appetizers are a big, hot, fattening mess (Hello cheese sticks. And calamari. And nachos.) Same … [Read more…]

Yes, it’s Saturday, so I won’t keep you here too long. I know you’ve all got plans. Running? Catching a Zumba class? Chilling with a good book?
