This is less of a recipe and more of a fun tip. Summer is coming and there’s nothing better than a fruit popsicle in the hellish heat. Instead of splurging on expensive popsicles full of high fructose corn syrup and who-knows-what-else, make your own! Grab yourself a set of popsicle molds from Amazon and let […]
In 2011 I lost 35 pounds in 6 months. It was awesome. I was surging with energy and felt great. My friends and family complimented me left and right. I liked how I looked in photos—the true test of self-confidence. But I have a confession. I didn’t lose it naturally. I lost it with the help of […]
One of my favorite things to make is dressing. I call it dressing, but really, these types of sauces can be used for just about anything. You can use it as salad dressing, dipping sauce for whatever, or even sautéed with ingredients on the stove. I generally don’t buy most store-bought dressings any more for these 4 […]
It is a known fact that eating a healthy meal is key to living a healthy life. Sooner or later, you will have to stop indulging in fatty foods because this will lead to heart complications, high blood pressure, and will eventually bog down your system. Despite this, it’s difficult to stick to a healthy […]
Don’t worry, I’m not going to persuade you to be a vegan or to stop eating ground meat. I wouldn’t do such a thing. But watch out for ground Turkey till they get this salmonella junk settled (*See 1st reason below for more info*). These outbreaks tend to make people uneasy, but they actually encourage […]

If you know how to cut veggies and fruits, you’ll eat them more. I’ve worked in commercial kitchens where I don’t have time to be slow. So it pays to learn these tricks because you’ll be in and out of the kitchen in no time.
Ok, don’t get mad at me. When you think “healthy”, you probably don’t think pasta. That’s okay, I’m on the same page. But see… the thing is, sometimes “healthy” is a little…well, relative. Is a bowl of pasta better than a Big Mac, fries and a Coke? Yeah, I think so. Sometimes to me, “healthy” […]
I really don’t like store-bought salsa. There, I said it. I think it’s crap. I’ve had maaaaybe one store-bought salsa in my life that I thought wasn’t too shabby. There are lots of different types of salsa but I’m going to show you how to make a super simple pico de gallo. You are welcome […]
If you’re poor like me, every cent counts and finding the cheapest grocery stores in town is important. I decided to do a little comparative research with nearby grocery stores and let the data tell me which chain was the cheapest. I compared 29 items that I would usually buy, ranging from eggs, to chicken, […]
I weigh more than I should for my height. I’ve visited Taco Hell more than I should have. I love real butter and sweets. I’m not a dietitian. I don’t even have a college degree. I’m poor and “don’t have the time” to make “real food”. Because I have a full time job (well, I […]
