Interesting Oats


Wednesday, November 23, 2016

I grew up eating oatmeal. Usually Quaker oats "minute" oatmeal, must add LOTS of sugar, butter and or whole milk. Those days are long gone. My dad made the oatmeal soupy, I suppose to stretch the breakfast on cold winter mornings as thin as possible. I hate soupy oatmeal, enter - me not eating oatmeal for ...

Berries: A Fall Romance


Friday, October 28, 2016

This one was easy. All kinds of berries are in season! I've been creating more smoothies without bananas, though beloved, I don't always crave the overly sweetness of the ripe. The tartness of the cranberries paired with the light sweet of the strawberries is a nice combination. Add the basil and you get a bit of clean ...

On 35 – TheRobertaShow | Frightening Comfort


Friday, October 7, 2016

Officially 35, I'm claiming success on adulthood thus far but, truthfully speaking - i'm also claiming a bit of fright.

In my experiences, things ...

Spring Roll #formation


Friday, September 9, 2016

Preparing Asian inspired food intimidates me, but I love it. Spring rolls are near the top of the list, prepared in any way but very specifically when eaten raw, they leave a fresh and light feeling of fullness. Depending on the ingredients used you can really focus on the flavors and not the packaging. Obviously I love ...

Office Snacking: Nature Box


Thursday, September 1, 2016

If you're reading this, you probably have a problem. It could be with sweets, it could be with salt, but it's probably the combination of both and eating too much of either at the wrong time. I consistently prepare my own snacks by either pre-packing fruits, nuts and vegetables OR baking something healthy enough to pass as ...

Grilled Cheese Tomatoes


Monday, August 15, 2016

Grilled cheese, hold the bread! USUALLY on Saturdays I wake up with a craving for pancakes or something smothered in jelly or honey - then I act accordingly and make my favorite smoothie. There are the RARE occasions I yearn for a savory approach to breakfast and I usually scramble and spice eggs to scratch that itch, but this ...

Banana Choco Protein Bites


Sunday, June 26, 2016

Forever in search of the perfect "healthy - but satisfying" snack, I struggle with selection just like everyone else. The worst foods are the easiest accessible and also CHEAP. The strongest muscle I have against my cravings is my mind and I'll admit - I don't always win - i'm the MVP of justification. I came across a super easy solution that also promotes a ...

Friday, April 29, 2016

Instead of cucumber this week I subbed in watermelon when infusing weekly water. Nothing against watermelon, I just live in NYC and actually carry groceries with my hands. Hint: Melons are HEAVY! I instead purchased prepackaged (lazy I know) fresh watermelon chunks to use in this easy detoxing recipe. Although I'm not bored of my usual combinations ...
