  Have you ever noticed how extremely grateful dogs seem to be when you throw them a bone or dish up their chow? Like they are eating for the very first time. Saying Grace Taking a moment of gratitude before each meal is a mindful and thoughtful approach to eating and enjoying time together. I’ve noticed a few times that this can make guests at the table a little uncomfortable. Perhaps they don’t want to say grace to […]

I am adding yet another new daily habit of 30 minutes of focus and deep concentration by journaling precisely what I want to create in life with the honest intention of being in service to everyone I meet.  I imagine and behold a (super) better version of myself, eliminating any negative thoughts including envy, hatred, judgement, selfishness or cynicism. No matter what, I will carve out this time to make sure this becomes a ritual in my […]

Lunch yesterday near the office in Soho, NYC. I am obsessed with this spicy detox lemonade at Chop’t. Going to try to whip this up over the weekend and found a few recipes on line. The ingredients seem simple enough – the juice from whole lemons, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Some add sea salt to boost the “flush”.    I know this master cleanse has been around for quite some time and Beyonce brought […]

“Be the person with embarrassing goals and impressive results instead of one of the many people with impressive goals and embarrassing results.” Today’s thoughts inspired by a seriously smart book:  Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results I travel to Manhattan for work each day (some people call it commuting). I intentionally take my travel to New York City each day and I view it as a big adventure. The big apple, right here in my own […]

You know that wonderful feeling that bubbles up when you go to a fresh farm stand on the side of the road and you load up on your favorite vegetables? Still covered with dirt, very much “in season” and obviously locally grown.  Juicy, ripe healthy tomatoes, corn, spinach, broccoli, beets, carrots, onions, cilantro, radishes, peppers, squash, etc., stacked chin-high in old wooden crate bins. You haven’t even started cooking and your soul feels nourished. The […]

Left to his own preferences, my husband will choose (actually prefer) to eat a full meal in front of the Jets game followed by a chilled bowl of chocolate ice cream. The absolutely crazy thing is, he seems so Buddha-like doing so, just delighted as he slurps his way through the soft melted mass of what I imagine for him is simply stomach-soothing flavor. Comfort food. I, on the other hand, am completely opposite. The mere thought of […]

I’m not necessarily a gear girl because I absolutely believe it’s not the tools, it’s how you use them, however, on the other hand, I truly appreciate great quality when I find it. I wish I would have discovered a complete list of the best of everything when I decided to turn things around. I have found the following weight-loss and training tools have stood the test of time, lasted way longer than I expected […]

Across the country, restaurants are looking for innovative ways to keep employees off the balance sheet. But what’s slightly different about Eatsa is the focus on “healthier” fast food. Eatsa is using technology like iPads VS actual wait staff in San Francisco. Unlike these droids serving up delicacies in China. At Eatsa’s automat it’s pretty simple, once you place your order at a kiosk, you pick it up a few minutes later behind a glass door. The […]

Usually habits are really useful. When we are on “auto pilot”  our brains have become so efficient at doing something we can tune out our conscious minds, which can be helpful sometimes, like when brushing our teeth, but not when working out. More about the upside of habits in this awesome book:The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business The Problem with Mindless Patterns Habits and patterns can also be […]
