April 2013

Hey guys!  I’ve been coming across various articles on researchers suggesting a new way to encourage people to make healthier food choices at restaurants: Replace calories counts on menus with the number of brisk walking a person would need to completely burn off what they just eat.  For example: a quarter-pound double cheeseburger requires 2 […]


Friday Favorites: 26/04

by Khushboo on April 26, 2013

I love writing Friday Favorite posts because I get to share about a whole bunch of things which I’m loving in one shot.  Because it’s been exactly a month since my last one, I think it’s about time to bring it back: My buddy (and avid blog reader 🙂 ) Suchita brought me back several […]


Winging it: Pizza Tartine

by Khushboo on April 24, 2013

Ever since I started working from home at the start of the year, 2 perks I have enjoyed are: A flexible work schedule: Not packing lunches These days I take a much more methodological approach to lunch called “Winging it” (insert sarcasm ;)).  Despite having a fully-fledged kitchen at my disposal, my lunches now are […]

I had a different post planned for today but suddenly it doesn’t seem as important. In typical fashion, I woke up on Tuesday morning and checked my messages, Facebook & Instagram.  Between seeing photos & statuses about the Boston bombings and prayforboston hasthags, nothing really made sense. Even after reading countless articles, watching Obama’s speech […]

by Khushboo on April 12, 2013

After my last post on the key to happiness, I thought I’d roll with something more light-hearted and food-based today.  Thanks for the survey tag, Dixya…I really appreciate it 🙂 : 1) What are the three fave things in your fridge/freezer right now?

Choose happiness

by Khushboo on April 10, 2013

Hey guys!  A few weeks ago I heard about Notes From The Universe from Parita and instantly signed up for it.   To put it short, they are personalised & inspirational reminders which are sent out daily.  Some of the messages I’ve gotten are laughable (i.e. ridiculous) but others have really struck a chord with me.  […]
