by Khushboo on January 25, 2013

Hey guys!  What’s going on?  Because there’s no coherent way to tie together any of the points below, I’m not even going to try: 1) Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free, Flourless Banana Pancakes: Fortunately I tolerate flour & gluten well, but that doesn’t stop me from trying out recipes which don’t contain either.  When I first heard about these minimal-ingredient […]

My workout P of A

by Khushboo on January 11, 2013

It’s been ages since I last posted about anything fitness-related…8 weeks to be exact.  Between then and now, I’ve still been working out plenty.  The only difference is that I’ve taken a less formal approach to exercise.  Due to travelling and then my gym in Mumbai being shut for renovations, I am just staying active […]
