Post-Holiday Reset

by Khushboo on July 24, 2017

After a holiday, it’s quite common to come home feeling subpar.  Between the irregular eating patterns, lack of sleep and eating foods more indulgent than normal, we end up feeling a bit bloated, our skin is more prone to breakouts & overall thrown off balance. Although ‘detoxes’ have gained popularity as a solution in recent years, they carry […]


Trader Joe’s Favourites

by Khushboo on May 30, 2016

One thing that America offers plenty of is choice.  Take the ice cream section in any supermarket for example.  Gone are the days where you could only choose from vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and maybe a fourth flavour if you’re lucky.  In addition to the basic varieties, you are offered the choice of dairy-free, low-fat, fat-free, […]


Sugar cravings- almost all of us experience them, some of us more so than others.  While there’s nothing wrong with the occasional sweet treat or dessert, I do think it’s an issue when that desire turns into a “need” i.e. needing to end every meal on a sweet note.  I say that because not long […]


Travel favorites

by Khushboo on August 31, 2015

Hey guys! I’m back in Mumbai after an amazing 3 months away. Fortunately I nipped the jet lag in the bud by forcing myself out of bed at a reasonable hour on Saturday morning and given my OCD, I’m all unpacked and back to the grind.  Aside from being slightly overweight with my luggage, my journey […]


Hey guys!  I’m glad you enjoyed seeing my day of eats.  While I’d love to make it a regular installment, it’s unlikely merely because my eats stay pretty much the same i.e. I go through a phase of really liking a certain meal or combination and then it sticks a while…or at least until boredom kicks […]

I’m sure fellow bloggers would agree that blogs serve as a great platform to share a variety of subjects, be it recipes, workouts, opinions and so forth.  A blogging highlight for me is when someone tries out one of my recipes..even better if they enjoy it.  Unfortunately the downside of sharing your recipes online is […]

Happy Friday guys!  Thanks to all of you who commented on my post earlier this week on Happiness from Weight Loss.  There were some great points added to the discussion, so definitely check ‘em out.    I missed doing these Friday Favorites post so let’s get crackin’: 1) I can’t get enough of seeds lately, especially […]


A ball of fun

by Khushboo on August 16, 2013

I’m just going to put it out there: Jet lag is a bitch…at least from west to east!  Although I landed in Mumbai feeling exhausted on Wednesday morning, I managed to fight the urge to snooze during the day.  That meant unpacking immediately; catching up on work; saying my “hellos” to friends/family; running a few […]
