Best of the best

by Khushboo on September 28, 2012

In theory suck sick days are great: You get to stay in your PJs till evening without anyone questioning you Nap-time is encouraged If you’re lucky enough to live with your family/roommates, being pampered is likely In reality the novelty wore off by noon yesterday…and then the weakness & fever-induced sweating kicked in.  In between […]


Yummus Hummus Burgers

by Khushboo on September 26, 2012

Happy hump hummus day guys! I’ve been on a burger kick these past few days but not just any burger…hummus burgers to be exact.  Before we get to it, let’s talk about hummus for a second.  Is there anything better than warm pitta bread dipped into hummus? I think not! Hummus is one of those […]


The “Y” in HealthY Eating

by Khushboo on September 24, 2012

It’s no surprise that there is a growing trend towards eating healthier.  Despite the number of McDonalds outlets opening by the second and the increase in heavily processed foods on supermarket shelves, a huge chunk of the population now gravitates towards more nutritious choices. As cheesy as it sounds, one of the best things about […]


Five Favorites For Friday

by Khushboo on September 21, 2012

How about we skip the chit-chat and just get going with some of my faves from this past week: 1) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake:  After ice cream, cheesecake is my all-time favorite dessert…I can rarely resist it.  As Cheesecake Factory just opened in Dubai, my mom brought back a slice for me earlier this […]


The deal with my meals

by Khushboo on September 19, 2012

Happy Wednesday and by happy, I mean thank goodness for public holidays which fall mid-week!  So although my blog is primarily focused on nutrion & fitness , I rarely ever document my daily meals.  In the 2.5 years I have been blogging, I’ve posted a grand total of once about a full day of eats.  […]


 I think we all have at least one person in life who we look up to.  For me it has always been my sister Shyamla.  We’ve spent more years living apart than together, yet she’s still the closest person to me.  Along with eating healthily & fitness, her positive influence has extended into so many […]


A load of crap

by Khushboo on September 14, 2012

**Word of warning before I start: this post is borderline TMI.** In terms of my reputation, this might be the riskiest post I have ever written.  I was actually hesitant to post about poop because it’s hardly the most glamorous subject to discuss publicly.  Feces, shit, crap, poop, dump…call it what you want but let’s […]


An unexpected lesson

by Khushboo on September 12, 2012

Oh hey there!  Ever find that you take away lessons from the most unexpected places?  As I mentioned last week, I started my new workout schedule this week.  After a stellar run on Monday, I completed a CST workout (chest, shoulders & triceps) yesterday which left me feeling dead in a good way…also on a […]


Say what now?

by Khushboo on September 10, 2012

Hi guys! Hope you all had a good weekend! Up until Sunday morning, mine was going great. I am in the middle of revamping my blog and let’s just say, I am not as technologically-talented as I once gave myself credit. With the exception of my massage, my Sunday morning involved plenty of “Kill me […]
