Back to nursery

Anyone remember the good old days of AOL Instant Messenger and chain mails?  Or was that just me?  I’ve always been a fan of surveys and used to get such a kick filling them in and then forwarding them on.  When I saw a foodie-related survey, naturally I jumped at the chance.  So amuse me […]


Pro-tein versus Con-tein

by Khushboo on May 30, 2011

It’s Monday so you know what that means: smoothie-for-lunch day !  As I was sipping on one of my most random smoothie concoctions to date, a colleague asked me whether I was drinking a protein shake. Lucky for him, I was too involved in my drink and not at all in a chatty moody. If […]


Empire state of mind

What’s the one place you would love to visit?  Personally I would have to choose the US of A.  Despite being a US-passport holder, I haven’t made nearly enough use of it!  To be more specific, I want to visit New York- ASAP! This may or may not have to do with the fact that […]


Econ made easy

Given the image-obsessed society which we live in, I think that weight loss/maintenance tends to be in the back of every woman’s mind.  Even though I am comfortable at my current weight, I wouldn’t mind shedding a few additional pounds.  For that reason: I’m going to add my two-pence on the subject.   From genetics to […]


More cheeeze pleeaze

As much as I’m all about healthy eating and stick to ‘real’ foods, I still do hold a soft spot for certain processed foods. These are the foods which I choose to conveniently ignore the nutrition labels. What can I say, ignorance truly is bliss 😉 : Oreos M&M’s (yes I have noticed that whenever […]


Something unBEATable

by Khushboo on May 23, 2011

One of my favorite car games is saying a word and the other person has to say the first thing that comes to mind. For example:  Will Smith–> Fresh Prince of Bel Air SAT exams–> HB2 pencils Las Vegas–> Slot Machines Dollar bill–> George Washington And finally Beetroot–> anonymous friend For the sake of this […]


A novel concept

by Khushboo on May 22, 2011

As time goes on, we are becoming more & more of a technology-driven society.  Whether it’s communication, entertainment, work-related activities, exercise, cooking, or shopping our lives are infiltrated with technology!  Between the flashing red light or gamut of apps to choose from, chances are you are addicted to your Crackberry or iPhone.  Or if you […]


He’s just THAT into you

by Khushboo on May 19, 2011

My cousin asked me the other day if I know how I would like my wedding to be. Er no. He was slightly surprised that I didn’t comply with the stereotype ‘I’m a girl so that means my wedding has been mapped out in my head since I was born’.  For those that DO already […]


Who says??

by Khushboo on May 17, 2011

 “You shouldn’t eat after 7 pm”  “You shouldn’t mix proteins & carbs” “You should exercise first thing in the morning”  “You shouldn’t directly eat fruit directly after a meal” Whether it’s a conversation with a peer, television, magazine, blog, whatever: we keep hearing what we should or shouldn’t do!  Yet much of the time, these […]
