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. However you take it, let’s agree that coffee is awesome and you should love every […]

earbuds-running

Do you listen to music while you run? It’s hard to spot a runner who isn’t wearing earbuds as they bob up and down the street. From making time go by faster to providing a smooth rhythm at which to run, music can be a godsend as you practice for 26.2 miles of hardcore endurance. Smooth jazz can calm your quickly-beating heart, dub step can pump you up and give you the energy you need, and Eye of the Tiger […]

I’m going to go ahead and assume you all know what Jamba Juice is. Is that a safe assumption? No? Well, it’s a smoothie joint. My little brother happens to work there, actually. Anyway, they make smoothies. Dang good ones, if I do say so myself. But honestly, five bucks for some berries in a blender? No thanks. I’d rather make it myself. And I’m not gonna lie to you guys, I make really good smoothies. But they have this […]

Can you imagine having run 123 marathons in your life? That’s just what 69-year-old John Farah’s done, but incredibly after his first marathon, he was sure he’d never do it again. Farah outlines his story in this CNN article, where he tells of the frustration of his first marathon and gives advice on what to do to make sure your first marathon isn’t your last. It’s all about pacing and taking occasional walking breaks, he says. Even talking to your […]

I’m not perfect. I don’t want to EVER be perfect. If we are perfect, then what is there to strive towards, to “better”? I was recently asked how I cut down on my nighttime eating… I know this is something a LOT of us struggle with, so I’d love to share with you, Magic Bullet Blog readers, the tips and tricks I’ve used throughout the years that have actually stuck and made a difference. There are five strategies which I’ve […]

Do you like piña coladas? And dancing in the rain? If so, it sounds like we could be friends. Since rum isn’t my favorite liquor, I decided to make some virgin piña coladas to try and beat the heat. These are just as good as alcoholic ones and are totally acceptable to drink at any function. I got the recipe from Paula Deen who I still love in spite of her diabetes debacle. She has a really interesting life; I […]

pea soup

Wait! Don’t click away! Don’t be afraid! Don’t run in fear of the word ‘pea’ or the dreaded combination of ‘pea’ and ‘soup’ in the *gasp* same! Sentence! Because I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking you hate peas. You’re thinking peas are those nasty still-half-frozen-rewarmed-in-the-microwave slimy green balls your parents made you eat before you could have dessert. Those dreaded vegetables that exploded green taste into your mouth when you accidentally bit on one instead of just swallowing them […]

I recently ran the San Francisco Marathon for the third time. Though I hadn’t trained specifically for the race, I had a complimentary entry and did well the year before, so I figured why not take a weekend trip and do the race. I had no reason to expect good results based on the fact that I had taken a month off training prior to the event. On the flip side, I was confident in my ability to run hills, […]

I think avocados are probably one of the best green things ever. I mean. There are some really good green things, like, plants, and, lettuce. (Lettuce? That was all I could come up with? Seriously?) But avocados… they’re just so good! Do you agree? Or are you crazy like those crazy people who don’t dream of the creamy fruit and all the ways they can eat it? All the ways I can eat it are usually just smashed up with lime […]

Julia Child, who passed away in August 2004, would have been 100 years old today. For such an accomplished chef (She did bring French cuisine to American popularity with her show Mastering the Art of French Cooking, after all…) she, by no means, took herself seriously. Not afraid to make mistakes in the kitchen, she encouraged experimentation, fun, and always quality. Hard to say we’d be here where we are at Magic Bullet without her. Read this touching tribute to […]
