Cha-Ching!

by Khushboo on June 30, 2011

Don’t you love cleaning out your home and finding things which you never knew existed or just simply forgot about?   I sometimes think my closet is a gold mine because every now and then, there seems to be a top or dress which completely slipped my mind- not a bad ‘problem’ to have 🙂 .  Unfortunately that […]

The beat goes on

by Khushboo on June 28, 2011

When I was younger, one thing which I used to take pride in was my music knowledge.  I was the go-to  person for new music.  Anytime a new hip hop/ R&B song was out, it wasn’t long before I had downloaded it (and knew the lyrics).  It pains me to admit that such is not the […]

Veggie Delite

by Khushboo on June 27, 2011

One thing that gets on my nerves is when people suggest that vegetarians do not eat enough protein!  I agree that because several plant-based proteins like beans and legumes aren’t ‘complete’ proteins, it can be difficult for vegetarians to meet their daily requirements.  However foods like tofu can help eliminate such dangers. As it’s a soy-bean […]

Do healthy YOUR way

by Khushboo on June 26, 2011

Someone recently asked me for weight loss/dietary advice and the first thing that came to mind was gradual changes. Speaking from personal experience, drastic changes which leave no room for error are barely maintainable!  When setting his menu plan, my mom suggested a lentil loaf.  Sure you can lead a horse to water but you can’t […]

No more playing nice

by Khushboo on June 24, 2011

Some people might view venting as a form of cynicism or as a way of passing on negative energy. Personally I like to think that bitching venting helps maintain good health, specifically mental health. Research actually shows that ‘staying cool’ can lower your satisfaction. If you want to attain true happiness, you should get angry. […]

My dirty little secret

by Khushboo on June 23, 2011

My run this morning confirmed just how grimy low-maintenance I can be: I love being soaked in sweat (with the exception of when my hair has been professionally done 🙂 ).  I get immense pleasure out of finishing a workout with a damp t-shirt! Even though many females find the whole ordeal ‘gross’ or ‘embarrassing’, […]

Hustle for Muscle

by Khushboo on June 21, 2011

Who am I and what have I done with my former self?  I actually look forward to strength training workouts and shockingly sometimes rather do it than cardio.  Yes, that’s coming from a self-professed cardio junkie 🙄 .  As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I made theconscious decision to get my weight training on. I […]

Hanger Management

by Khushboo on June 20, 2011

Hanger: the most genius word invented.   According to Merriam-Webster Online: (adjective): Feeling or showing anger caused by hunger.  Combination of ‘hungry’ and ‘angry’.  How to use it in a sentence:“Let’s go eat; Mom’s starting to get hangry.”   Let’s be honest, hunger can bring out the cranky beeyatch in all of us!  Since last […]

Who stole the cookies

by Khushboo on June 19, 2011

As I confessed a while ago, there are some foods whose ingredient lists go right above my head.  What I don’t know can’t hurt, right? RIGHT?! Glad we’re on the same page :D!  Another one to add to the list is cookie dough.  Who cares if it contains margarine? Who cares if eating it raw […]
