The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed? Coffee lovers come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason. It can be decadent, it can be straightforward, it can get the job done or provide a lovely afternoon respite.

runner feat

You know that runner’s high? The high that makes you feel light, happy, and empowered after a long jog or marathon? Turns out, it’s a real thing. Researchers at the University of Arizona are saying that ‘runner’s high’ is a real, chemical process that happens in the human body. When you exercise aerobically – basically exercise to get your heart rate up – your body actually makes cannabinoids, the same kind of chemicals found in marijuana. It may be an […]

hummus2-1024x679

I used to be a hummus-hater. Seriously. Honestly, I used to hate every kind of bean, period. I wouldn’t touch chili with a ten-foot pole. Burritos were filled with only meat, rice and cheese. I was basically a weirdo. Luckily, I have since had a change of heart, and thanks to a del taco 79¢ bean and cheese burrito in high school, I have risen above my bean-eschewing ways. Refried beans and I are now the best of friends, and […]

Olympictrials

Another Olympic season has arrived and with it, a worldwide appreciation of the always-advancing talents and mastered skills of the planet’s best athletes. Competitors represent their countries with perfectly balanced human motion through water and air and across the ground as they aim to raise the bar of their chosen sport. As an athlete and fan of the Olympics, I got to thinking, what qualities do our Olympic heroes possess that would benefit anyone’s journey toward reaching a personal best? […]

Hello Magic Bullet Heads, The other day, my mom taught me how to make the famous granola that she and my dad eat every morning for breakfast. My mom started making her own granola because, in her words, “the stuff at the store was getting too expensive and just stopped tasting good.”  If you share a similar sentiment and have never tried making your own granola, then I highly recommend taking the plunge. Not only is this granola super easy to […]

I promised a fabulous recipe to use that butternut squash puree, didn’t I? Well, a girl must deliver. So if you are looking for something that tastes even more like fall, and will make your whole house smell like what I imagine heaven probably smells like, then look no further. These muffins are ridiculous. Seriously, they are the perfect breakfast treat that tastes like it must be bad for you, but really is pretty healthy as far as baked goods […]

Runners

Running’s good for our health, sure, we know that. But did you know it’s also good for the …economy? Well, not quite. It seems, if anything, the business of running is immune to the economy. Despite economic downturns, the number of runners continues to grow, marathons are selling out, and running shoes are flying off the shelves. The popularity of distance running has soared in recent years, and doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon, despite unemployment, high gas […]

On a hot day, as the sweat trickles down our temples, all we want to do is reach for a tall, ice-cold glass of water. But maybe reaching for a hot cup of tea is better? According to Joe Palca, writer for NPR’s food blog The Salt, drinking something hot during a hot day may have a better chance of cooling you off than something cold will. It’s counterintuitive, but the receptors on our tongues send messages to our brains […]

margarita

It’s a bold statement to make, I’m aware, but trust me when I tell you I’m something of an expert on margaritas. I prefer tequila to all other spirits, but truth be told I haven’t had a frozen margarita for years. I am the queen of on-the-rocks. I like my margarita strong, and without any of that fake sour mix or pre-made margarita mix crap. I like to play with the addition of seasonal fruits, vegetable and juices as well, […]
