Humpday Green Goddess Smoothie

In order to start my day right I made an ultra-green smoothie, it’s one of my favorites. This is definitely a treat because of the high sugar content of the fruits in the smoothie, but it’s still overall an extremely healthy breakfast.

I love a simple recipe that inspires me to pop into the kitchen and whipped up something new.

Chocolate Dinner CashewMilkShake

I was inspired to make this milkshake after trying this Chunky Monkey Smoothie on Sunday and after reading the recipe for this Chocolate Mouse Milkshake yesterday on my lunch break.  The Chunky Monkey Milkshake was amazing.  And the Chocolate Mouse Milkshake sounded heavenly, but my avocado isn’t ripe yet, so I improvised.  It’s not exactly a copycat of the…

Ipiit – The Food Ambassador App

I’ve used Ipiit for about a year now and can say with certainty that it is a useful app for those of us with diet restrictions or allergies.  It’s simple point and scan functionality makes it accessible on the go, and has proven itself a good companion in the grocery store many times over.  …

20 Minute Morning Yoga Sequence

Exercise is an important part of any diet aimed at contributing to a healthy lifestyle.  I’ve decided to start sharing my yoga practice, along with my recipes since both are equally important to me for living a happy and healthy life.  I sped this sequence up using a video editor.  So if you’d like me…

Starburst Smoothie

This weekend I traveled home to Long Island to help my mom throw my sister a surprise bridal shower.  Keith picked me up from work on Friday and drove me to the airport.  On our way we stopped for lunch at Juice Joint Cafe–an awesome little place in D.C. that only open during the week,…

Bistango, NYC restaurant with GF options

Mid-May Keith and I went home to Long Island to celebrate his cousin’s wedding.   While we were home I was able to go with my sister, mom, and granny to my sister’s final wedding dress fitting in NYC.  Her dress was gorgeous and the seamstress fixed the bra cup issue–it’s a light and float…

Sweet Spirulina Smoothie

As you can see from this post and the last, I’ve recently invested in some Matcha and Spirulina.  I also bought Hemp Seeds as well.  I went on a health food spree when I found out I could exchange my American Express points for cash on Amazon.  It’s a pretty sweet new feature.  This morning I put…

Steamed Matcha Buns

A few days ago I ordered matcha powder to use in backing and smoothies.  This morning I decided to give these Steamed Matcha Buns a try–the recipe was originally posted on Rolling Scone.  I adapted the recipe a little bit using my own flour blend.  Keith and the roommates all tried these and confirmed that…

Dumplings, Gluten Free and Vegetarian

So long it had been since I’d had dumplings.  They were a favorite of mine in all their variety: steamed, fried, crab ragoons, and shrimp shumai… First I was a vegetarian, so all seafood was out.  Then I became gluten free, so all delicious fried foods also almost completely disappeared.  But, I’m a kitchen scientist,…

Gluten Free ButterAlmondMilk Waffles

I was good all week, lots of smoothies, exercising, and mindfulness.  Today was a treat day.  These waffles came out so light and fluffy.  They were perfect and delicious and have cemented my confidence in the wonderful combination of white rice flour and tapioca flour–the same combination I use to make my big hit gluten…
