Sneaky Sneakerson

by Khushboo on February 28, 2011

Breaking news: eating fruits and vegetables are the backbone of good health.  Ok not really.  You know we should F&V daily, I know it.  While blueberries, broccoli, oranges, pumpkin, spinach, and tomatoes are apparently the ‘big guys on campus’ (i.e. the SuperFoods), that’s not to say that other F&V aren’t also nutritional powerhouses.  Contrary to […]

Would you rather…

by Khushboo on February 23, 2011

Never use the internet again or live without TV Be rich and ugly or poor and good-looking End hatred or hunger Sweat moderately but constantly 24 hours a day all over your body or have a metal pin in your jaw that constantly picks up talk radio stations? And finally… Would you rather be too […]

Nostalgia

by Khushboo on February 21, 2011

Everyone has those few foods where the mere thought transcends them back into time. Or where a certain food is attached to a memory or thought.  While I could endlessly go on and on, some of mine include: Groundnut chicken curry Heart-shaped pizzas CapriSonne Apple Juice Collin the Caterpillar Chocolate cake Dosas with a generous […]

Have a heart

by Khushboo on February 17, 2011

 From Valentine’s Day to national ‘Heart Health Month’, February is all about the hearts.  Fun fact: The heart is made up almost entirely of muscle and is strong enough to lift approximately 3,000 pounds- the weight of a compact car.  Oh and just to put it out there: women’s hearts beat faster than men’s […]

Oops, I did it again!

by Khushboo on February 15, 2011

You can call me Britney for now :)!  Just when I thought I had exhausted oat recipes with oatmeal, cookies, pancakes, muffins, fried chicken, and so much more- it looks like another one bites the dust: smoothies! Adding oats to smoothies is a perfect way of bulking it out with an added nutritional boost. It […]

The ideal job

by Khushboo on February 13, 2011

If you read my blog, chances are you love food, or are at least somewhat fond of it.  And therefore you would agree that being a food critic would be a super cool job: getting paid to eat free food and then review it!  After eating at a great restaurant, I’m going to temporarily dive […]

Half-full versus half-empty

by Khushboo on February 9, 2011

One of my friends at work sends out a daily ‘Thought of the Day’ email which I regularly enjoy receiving. Although some of them are a bit lame, a majority of the thoughts are forward-worthy.  A recent one which really stood out to me was: ‘Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a […]

Bananas over baking

by Khushboo on February 4, 2011

Considering I’m a blogger, it’s no surprise I like my words.  Give me an essay-based exam or a multiple choice exam, I’ll always choose the former.  Multiple choice questions come off as being easy but they leave no room for explanation- you’re either right or wrong…pretty harsh method of testing in my opinion! Anyhow that […]

Checkin’ it twice

by Khushboo on February 2, 2011

I love lists.  Whenever I feel stressed out or overwhelmed (i.e. packing for trips), writing/typing it all down seems to have a calming effect.  The process of getting tasks done can sometimes be a pain but nothing beats the satisfaction of crossing things off (can I get an Amen?? 😆 ).    Fortunately the list […]
