If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I didn’t know it at the time, but this flatbread (err … pizza, pictured above) is the last gluten and dairy-laden meal I would eat. My husband and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary in Napa this past […]
Given that we were #blessed with perfect weather this weekend (sunny and a little cool), David and I decided to get out of the city to enjoy some time in the suburbs. We drove to charming Princeton, New Jersey where we checked into a hotel, had lunch at Nassau Seafood Company After lunch I grabbed […]
I’m coconut-obsessed. Probably no secret. So when Skinny & Co. reached out to me to try their 100% raw coconut oil (the only 100% raw coconut oil in the world, by the way), I couldn’t resist. Still, I had to ask about the name “Skinny,” because I’m not a fan of the word. There are a […]
This weekend was more of the same as last weekend with home improvement projects, stocking the fridge and tying up some loose ends for my Green Your Diet 7-Day Challenge.

The official end of Summer and onset of Fall always has me craving the feeling of being grounded. We traveled a lot this summer and I let plenty of projects and to-do list items pile up in exchange for some well-deserved and much-needed R&R. I’m fine with it, but with the start of the new […]
You either love Vegas or you hate it. Even though we don’t gamble or stay out past Midnight, David and I are in the love camp. We love the weather, the restaurants, the shopping and the shows. It had been a few years since we last visited, so we decided it was time to go […]
Since I’m sugar and dairy-free and no longer indulge in ice cream, my new Summer treat has undoubtedly become Acai Bowls. Sometimes I make my own, sometimes I order them at brunch, often David and I share them as a snack and always we seek them out when we visit a new city. So as […]
