Spicy Pineapple Salmon skewers

I like to be excited to eat the lunches I meal prep. My excitement doesn't allow for any temptation of purchasing expensive and perhaps unhealthy food throughout my work day. I LOVE the control I have over the ingredients I eat on a daily bases and knowing there aren't any additional additives or preservatives gives me a ...

Watamelonwata: Infused Watermelon Water recipe


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 ...

Banana, Avocado… so Smoothie


Wednesday, February 24, 2016

After the beet fiasco I started contemplating other "strange" (to me) fruits and vegetables to add to my dinner smoothie pool. I had a few avocados in the fridge so it seemed natural that blending with bananas would create an amazing texture. The taste I wasn't sold on - so I added some peanut butter ... and a few ...

Berta’s Beet root Smoothie


Wednesday, February 10, 2016

So I have heard beets are delicious, and more importantly have ridiculous nutritional value. (a good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin C, iron & vitamin B6) Last year I added beets to my juicing list and was pleasantly surprised when I didn't ...

Breaking Fast – the EASY 13


Saturday, January 9, 2016

We all hear it, repeatedly ... from everywhere - all the time, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I have never subscribed to the idea, but as I have recently resurrected my 6 am workouts, I find myself famished by mid morning.
