November 2012

Wow…is it really already December tomorrow?!  As cliché as it sounds, this month FLEW by.  November’s definitely been a great month but I’m excited for December to start.  But before it does, I want to recap on a few favourites from this past week: 1) Homemade applesauce: Diced apples cooked in water & cinnamon…3 simple ingredients yet […]

My beef with Pinterest

by Khushboo on November 28, 2012

Happy hump day, homies!  Thanks for your comments about my workout hiatus.  After enjoyable workouts yesterday & today, it’s safe to say I’m back in business!  Continuing on the fitness talk, I wanted to post about the influence of social media, particularly Pinterest, on a healthy outlook.  To an extent, the internet can be a fantastic […]

A workout hiatus

by Khushboo on November 26, 2012

Dear Gym, We were on a break! Sincerely, Ross Geller Khushboo Nothing like a little F.R.I.E.N.D.S flashback to start off a post!  After I hit publish, I am going to faceplant my bed.  After 3 nights of partying for a friend’s wedding, I am beyond shattered.  Fortunately it’s the kind of exhaustion which is absolutely […]

A tOATal meal

by Khushboo on November 23, 2012

Hey guys!  So it turns out I got a taste of Thanksgiving yesterday: Sweet Potato & Pumpkin Pie, courtesy of  Indigo Deli: In case you’re wondering, that white blob is vanilla ice cream, not whipped cream.  This was actually my first taste of a pumpkin-based dessert and I am definitely a fan! But then again, […]

Giving thanks

by Khushboo on November 21, 2012

**Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!! ** In terms of food, I am not formally celebrating Thanksgiving….unless you count my Thanksgiving-inspired dinner from last night.   As for the whole spread, I will be eating vicariously through those who are celebrating ;). However I would like to participate in the more important part about […]

One of the perks about having a blog is being able to look back and see exactly what I was doing this time last year (or the year before).  In terms of workouts, I can’t believe how much my style of workouts has evolved.  For starters, I was running a lot a year ago: 4 […]

Let there be light

by Khushboo on November 14, 2012

With Diwali in full swing, I’ve lost track of what day it is…I can’t say I mind though ;).  I’m loving how everyone is an overly great mood these past few days, including my building’s lift-men who otherwise walk around with morose expressions.  The last day of Diwali is tomorrow, and I’ll tell you one thing that I am […]

Breaking the fast

by Khushboo on November 12, 2012

**Wishing Everyone a Very Happy Diwali!** As tomorrow is actually Diwali (and hence a public holiday), today feels more like a Faux Friday than a Monday :)!  Before it’s mithai galore all round (mithai = Indian sweets), let’s talk about breakfast for a second.  Up until I went to boarding school in 2002, I rarely […]
