Last but not least…

by Khushboo on October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween, y‘all!! Yep, I still can’t pull off “y’all”!  Whether or not you’re dressing up today, I hope your day is filled with plenty of chocolate/sweets.  I read an article a few days ago about handing out healthier alternatives to trick-o-treaters.  Talk about sucking the fun out of a holiday!  I’m all for apples […]


Happy Monday!  If you felt the weekend flew by, consider that a sign of a great weekend :)!  If I have to describe the highlight of my Sunday in one word, it would have to be “Starbucks“.  As crazy as that sounds to those of you living abroad, hear me out!  When I am in […]


Five Thoughts For Friday

by Khushboo on October 26, 2012

1) You know what drives me nuts: text lingo.  I don’t mind when people type out “u” instead of “you”, but someone please explain y sum ppl stil type lyk dis.  That being said, I seem to be making the most of Emoji on my iPhone.  As modern as the keyboard is, it’s rather ironic […]


Chickpea Tacos

Although I grew up in Nigeria & London, I’ve always been Indian at heart.  After living in Mumbai for 2.5 years,  I’ve definitely become even more Indian: My speaking still needs work, but it’s heck of a lot better than when I moved here I can watch a Hindi movie without subtitles Despite my fear […]


A Taste of Naples

by Khushboo on October 22, 2012

Who doesn’t love pizza?  Despite various preferences and taste buds, it’s one of the few dishes which is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Unless of course you’re counting carbs….then we might have a problem but fortunately that’s not mine.  Last week I received an email from the representatives at a new restaurant in Nariman Point, Mumbai […]


Hey guys! So recently I have been hearing/reading more & more about the concept of cheat days.  Even my personal trainer regularly tells me about what she plans to go all out with on the upcoming Sunday.  Although I didn’t strictly follow the eating part of Body for Life when I was on the plan, I […]


Wednesday Wafflin’

by Khushboo on October 17, 2012

Nutella crepes on Monday, waffles today…what am I doing to you!  Fortunately this post has little to do with these bad boys: As much I am loving overnight oats for breakfast, the above picture reminds me that I need to bring back the waffles ASAP!  Anyway today I am rollin’ with the other definition of […]


No shit Sherlock

by Khushboo on October 15, 2012

The only thing better than Nutella on a spoon is Nutella on bread…or croissant, crepe, and every other doughy carb.  I state this ever so important fact because of a case I came across this weekend, which spurred a huge craving for the stuff.   Long story short, Athena Hohenberg sued Nutella earlier this year because […]


Gah, why is it already Friday! …said no one ever! I don’t know about you but I am more than ready for it!  Weekends are usually the part of my week where I seem to eat more indulgently than normal.  As much as I enjoy eating healthy, life is too short to always say “no” […]
