You can almost see a bicep! So excited.
I’ve been trying some slow strength training. The boy also showed me how to do proper squats. Yeyyyy

So I never did get around to making sourdough or mozzarella. I tried a couple times, but it didn’t work out. I suppose it’s for the best, since my diet has changed somewhat since then.

Instead, this is my baby! I’ve been growing and drinking kefir for the past month or so. It does wonders for digestion and it’s really easy to take care of.

Morning routine: start my day off with a cup of herbal ginger tea  with the juice of half a lemon. Gotta start with alkalizing! 

Then I have a smoothie with a half cup of homemade kefir, a scoop of greens powder, half a teaspoon of spirulina and a few frozen fruits.

Definitely ready to take on the day!

New beginnings

Hello everyone!

I know I said I would be back some time ago, but I promise this time it’s real. I’m back, 20 pounds lighter and more comfortable with myself than last thanksgiving. I work at Whole Foods now and have joined an incredible program called the institute of integrative nutrition!

Over the next year I’m hoping to share some health tips, some introspective questions to help everyone (including me) get to the root of wellness and inner happiness, and some kick ass recipes.

I’d love for you all to join me on this journey. Feel free to submit pictures, struggles, success stories, honestly anything you feel strongly about.

Here’s to a year of new beginnings!


When I was living at home, every time I would get sick, my dad would push fluids, vitamins, and herbal supplements at me, and my mom would make me a big batch of her congee (a chinese rice soup made with ginger).  Since winter hasn’t let up here yet, I thought I’d make a big ‘ol batch for myself to warm up my soul in the meantime.  Here the soup is topped with some choi sum cooked with a little bit of oyster sauce and garlic.  
It’s nice for those days you just want to stay in bed curled up in the blankets with a snuggle buddy and a puppy.
