Setting the record straight

by Khushboo on October 29, 2010

Whether you open up a magazine, check out my blog :), chat to a friend, or turn on the tv, you’re bound to be flooded with health-related information.  As a society, we’ve reached a new height in terms of precautionary measures.  Annoyingly enough, much of the information we are bombarded with is contradictory, only leaving […]

The more fat, the better

by Khushboo on October 27, 2010

I am omega 3’d out. In this past week, I think I’ve consumed enough omega 3 fatty acids to see me through the month. Especially on Saturday, I hit an omega 3 hat-trick. Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? Check, check and check…all thanks to including salmon in all 3 meals. Omega 3 seems to be quite popular […]

A penne for your thoughts

by Khushboo on October 25, 2010

 I love carbs and I know that each one of you reading this shares similar sentiments.  Salads and meat do taste delicious, but let’s be honest: nothing hits the spot more than a crusty bread roll to mop up your soup or a rice accompaniment when eating a stir fry. It’s ok to agree, no […]

Smug much?

by Khushboo on October 24, 2010

Exercising on holiday, a do or don’t? Definitely a do for me. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a lousy packer.  If my luggage allowance is 30 kgs, chances are my bag will weigh 32 kgs.  Whether I’m travelling for 2 weeks or 2 months, my method of packing basically involves emptying the […]

Nature’s candy

by Khushboo on October 22, 2010

It really frustrates me when people don’t eat fruit because it’s “high in sugar”. While there is some truth in that, the sugars are all NATURAL. In other words, fruit is easily digestible and hence a great way to fill up on minimal calories due to it’s high fibre content. As soon as a diet […]

Something amazing

by Khushboo on October 20, 2010

Ok so excuse me if I seem to be going on about vegetable juices lately, but I want to share my excitement. I just can’t get over how much goodness a single glass can do for you both internally and externally.   So I was in a health shop yesterday and this product called Amazing […]

Vegetable juice: the verdict

by Khushboo on October 19, 2010

So, a week ago I had posted about my lack of energy levels and attempt to cure it with homemade vegetable juice.  I’ll give you the verdict in 2 words: magic potion. Mental or not, this juice has worked wonders.  I’ve been feeling so much full of life this past week, and haven’t experienced that mid-afternoon […]

A different kind of balance

by Khushboo on October 17, 2010

Do you check your horoscope daily? I’m slightly skeptical about the accuracy of horoscopes.  Whether I believe in them or not depends on the day.   If what I’m reading is positive or if I can find some way, any way, to relate it  to my life I’ll take it.  Otherwise, I just laugh them off and […]

Losing it

by Khushboo on October 16, 2010

Ugh I’m losing my mind..well actually I’m losing my hair, and hence my mind in the process. Does it make me want to pull out my hair? YES! Well no…well you know what I mean :D.  When I was younger, I always used to wonder which of my parents I should blame for being born […]
