RANT: Give a Little

Remember when you were a kid and your parents told you it was more fun to give than receive … and you were like “That’s crazy talk!”? You never quite got the end of the Grinch, when all the Who’s down in Whoville sang together, not bummed at all that their gifts had been jacked. I’m not saying I wouldn’t be upset if we were … Continue reading RANT: Give a Little

RANT: Fa La La Lardo

Ok my lil’ Sugar Plums, tis the season for over indulgence.  If you made it through Thanksgiving without heartburn or a pant size adjustment, good on ya!  But holiday parties abound these next few weeks. So brace yourself and your belts.  I could name 900 tasty treats you are likely to encounter this Yuletide, from egg nog to saltine toffee (<-do not click there, it’s a … Continue reading RANT: Fa La La Lardo

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I used to joke that I didn’t need a holiday to over eat, that I could do that all year long.  I suppose the same could be said for ‘giving thanks’.

It almost seems  ridiculous to call it a … Continue reading RECIPE: Hard Boiled Eggs

RANT: why simplify?

I consider myself a fluctuator.  You know, a sorta healthy weight until the proverbial “___ hits the fan”, life gets stressful, then it starts …. I’m not sleeping enough, I’m eating junky foods, and lots of it, then BAM! I swell up like 2 sizes….until stuff cools down and I’m able to get back to my routine of healthy living. But then again, isn’t that’s … Continue reading RANT: why simplify?

RANT: Packaged Meals

I worked around 110 hours a week and I gained like 11 pounds in the first month of my medical training.  I didn’t even notice because I was so exhausted—plus, the scrubs we wore, allowed you to,  unknowingly go up 4 sizes, and still fit in to your cinch-able scrub pants. My diet consisted entirely of individually wrapped graham crackers and peanut butter tubs (which were … Continue reading RANT: Packaged Meals
