Red light

by Khushboo on November 30, 2010

Hands up if you’ve ever experienced the “this tastes so good but I am so full” feeling and yet proceeded to wipe your plate clean? With both my hands in the air, I’m guessing I’m not alone on this. Especially at restaurants, I would almost always eat my entire order, massive or not.  I’m guessing […]


Staving off cravings

by Khushboo on November 29, 2010

Despite our food preferences, one thing we all share is cravings. Pregnant or not, we’ve all experienced them and on many occasions given in…or maybe that’s just me ;). Unlike hunger, cravings are more specific and involve a certain food being cooked/ served in a certain way.  The other day, for example, I had the […]


Veggie soup for the soul

by Khushboo on November 27, 2010

Despite the peaking temperatures, I’ve been on a real soup kick over the last few weeks.  Believe it or not, soup can actually have a cooling effect on the body due to its water content.  More so than that, it’s also a great filler and makes for a perfect meal accompaniment.  Depending on your mix-ins, […]


Sick and tired…

by Khushboo on November 26, 2010

…of feeling sick and tired.  During the last few days, I’ve been feeling slightly under the weather due the unexpected change in weather (I thought we were done with rains for the year!!!).  I actually detest being ill as I find that it just throws my whole routine out of whack.  Rest and recuperation seem […]

More cheese, please

by Khushboo on November 25, 2010

For the longest time, I tried to convince myself that I didn’t like cheese. Call me crazy but avoiding it completely seemed a lot easier than limiting myself to a miniscule portion. The two cheeses which I stuck to having were cottage cheese and Philly Extra Light (or Laughing Cow Light triangles). After recently being […]


Thank you ma’am

by Khushboo on November 24, 2010

Even though I’ve never grown up in the States, I just love Thanksgiving.  Maybe it’s because it always granted a long weekend…or maybe because of the abundance of food…or maybe because it’s a time to express gratitude for things we take for granted the rest of the year…OR maybe it’s a combination of it all? When […]


Snacky McSnackerson

Fruitus bars: I bought an Organic Apple & Oat flavored Fruitus bar** ages ago but it sort of drowned in my handbag. I completely forgot that it was lurking in there until I emptied out the contents of my bag (why do keys always land up at the absolute bottom of the pile??).   I normally […]


Fuel for champions

by Khushboo on November 22, 2010

So my post on coconut water got me curious about electrolyte levels.  I typically work out right before a meal so  try to include a good balance of nutrients. What can I say: you gotta do what you gotta do to avoid the post-workout fatigue and muscle cramping ;).  With sweat goes the electrolytes.  Sorry […]


For what it’s worth

by Khushboo on November 21, 2010

Where food is concerned, I’ve never been one of those ‘take it or leave it’ people.  I do put a lot of thought into what I eat, and try to eat food that either tastes good or is good for me.  Over the last few years, my emphasis on food has shifted from being purely […]
