Peace out, 2010!

by Khushboo on December 31, 2010

Wow, I can’t believe that this is my 122nd post…or that tomorrow is 2011!  When I first started blogging, I thought it would just be a phase that would last up until I found a job.  However the more I continue to post, the more my interest and passion to eat healthy, exercise, expand my knowledge […]


Let’s hang together

by Khushboo on December 29, 2010

Pounding headache? Nausea? Dry mouth? Dizziness? Weakness? Trembling? Feeling like you got hit by a train last night? Answering yes to more than one of the above means you’re likely suffering from a hangover. As fun as the night before might have been, there’s nothing worse than dealing with the after-effects. While it would be […]

Eat, run, sleep

by Khushboo on December 27, 2010

I couldn’t make up my mind this morning: wake up an hour early to exercise before work or carry on sleeping?  Realizing that I have a week of late nights ahead of me, I decided to go with the latter. Chances are I won’t be able to indulge in 8 hours of sleep a night until next […]


Food makes fun fuel

by Khushboo on December 23, 2010

Cereal, to me, is the equivalent of crack. OK that might be a slight exaggeration but I actually love the stuff. There’s something about eating it which is so satisfying. Topping it with some fruit, milk/yogurt, and nuts makes it a delicious, filling, and balanced breakfast option: wholegrain carbs, protein, healthy fats, fruit, dairy…and the […]


Power of words

by Khushboo on December 20, 2010

When I did the International Baccalaureate, one of the higher level modules I selected was psychology. To be honest, I don’t even know why I took it as I had no interest whatsoever in the field. Now that I look back, I’m kind of glad I did. All the concepts and theories have so much […]

Don’t sweat the small stuff

by Khushboo on December 19, 2010

Real women don’t sweat, they glow! Potayto Potato.  Sweat, glow, call it whatever you like but it’s something that feels great! Ok just a little clarification before I go on: involuntary sweating due to exorbitant temperatures or claustrophobia is kinda nasty especially when a shower isn’t in your near future. Sweating after a workout? Now […]


A chocolate a day…

by Khushboo on December 17, 2010

As catty as females can be, there’s one bond that we all share- a love for chocolate. I mean who doesn’t like chocolate?? White, dark, milk: you must have a soft spot for at least one…or, if you’re like me, all.  In no specific order, the ones that hold a special place in my heart […]

Mental over Lentils

by Khushboo on December 15, 2010

One thing that does my head in is when people say that “eating healthy is expensive” or “it is so difficult to stick to”. Depending on what you define as ‘healthy’, these statements may hold some truth. If your idea of healthy living involves popping weight-loss pills/meal supplements or severely restricting your calorie/carb intake, sticking […]


May contain traces of nuts

by Khushboo on December 13, 2010

Considering it features on my blog header, I’ve devoted a post to it in the past, and I haven’t gone a day without it since April, there is no doubt that I love peanut butter.  Forget alcohol and cigarettes: this is an addiction for me.  I do prefer the smooth variety but the crunchy option […]
