Just my cup of tea…

by Khushboo on July 31, 2013

Good morning!  What’s in your mug today- tea or coffee? My first cup in the morning is 99.9% always tea, but I can’t say I prefer it over coffee.  I am an equal opportunist i.e. there’s a time and place for both.  However this article seems to think tea trumps coffee, especially as tea calms […]


Comida & downward dawgs

by Khushboo on July 29, 2013

Believe it or not, I’ve never tried authentic Mexican food…at least not until this weekend. Despite my love for guac & salsa, my experience of Mexican food had merely extended to Chipotle and my laughable creations at home .  Over the weekend, I caught up with some cousins at Santo, a cozy Mexican restaurant and […]


Friday Favorites 07/26

Soho London is a foodie goldmine.  There are so many cute restaurants there which I’ve stumbled upon this trip such as Bill’s. It had some interesting décor including various hanging from the ceiling.  My favorite was the one about eating: Well said! Although the service was quite slow, the food did not disappoint. There were […]


Hey guys!  I was going through Search Engine Terms that brought people to my blog and couldn’t help but laugh at some of them: why did starbucks change the oatmeal cookie:  I hope we’re not talking about the Starbucks in India birthday cake with name Khushboo: There’s been at least 25, but one of my […]


Chobani taste test

by Khushboo on July 22, 2013

You know what beats receiving an e-mail? Receiving a letter in the mail! And you know what’s even better than that? Receiving a letter AND package in the mail…especially when it’s filled with yogurt!  I walked home on Thursday to one of the nicest surprises from Chobani: 8 pots of flavored 0% strained (=Greek) yogurt: […]

Top of the morning guys..or PM depending on your current time zone :)!  Here are some of my faves from the week: I’ve eaten the same lunch 3 times this week because it’s that good: a piece of wheat, rye & sunflower bloomer toast topped with cream cheese, basil, tomato and chicken breast and a […]


I don’t mean to brag but I’ve been getting in some seriously good runs lately.  Since temperatures in London have reached over 30°C, I looked online for tips on running outdoors in the heat.  Some pointers which I came across include: Invest in light & loose-fitting clothing Wear sunscreen to protect yourself from skin cancer Run […]


Although it’s been a while since I’ve tested my vitamin D levels, I’m pretty sure they are more than topped off after these past 2 days.  Aside from sleeping, I think I’ve spent a total of 5 hours at home all weekend- the weather was far too nice and being inside felt hotter than outside. […]

by Khushboo on July 12, 2013

Happy Friday, friends! You gotta love the Friday feeling- everyone just seems overly happy, even more so with the sun shining. Before the weekend officially starts, here are some of my favorites from the week: Some foods nourish our body whereas others nourish our souls. Ice cream falls in the latter category for me.  Given […]
