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?

Remember Gogurt? Remember when you wanted to eat it, but it was warm from sitting in your mom’s car after a long day of errands? Remember when you stuck it in the freezer to get it cold faster? And then forgot about it and discovered it the next day!? That’s what all of those new-fangled create-your-own-yogurt places remind me of. But sometimes, I’m too lazy to walk down the five flights of stairs to the place down the street. It’s a lot easier […]

Duyen made some virgin piña coladas recently that looked delicious. And it seems we are on similar wavelengths because I made some, too. Only I like rum. Quite a lot actually. Also, I wasn’t smart enough to look up an actual piña colada recipe, so I just made it up. We had pineapple. And coconut milk. Seemed easy enough, right? Not going to lie, it took a couple of tries. A lot of re-blends, if you will. So I don’t […]

guac

Sometimes I buy avocados to add to sandwiches that I pack for lunch. Sometimes I get lazy and don’t pack lunch. Sometimes the bread goes bad and I have two avocados left. What do I do? Well, when life makes it so you put off packing lunch and you have ripe avocados, you make guacamole! Spicy guacamole to be exact. Remember when Alton Brown’s Good Eats was new and quirky? I miss those days. But I love this easy guacamole […]

Oh Summer. We loved you. We will always love you. Some things just epitomize summer in the best of ways. I love summer more than any other season by far and I love everything that goes along with summer, too. Long days, warm nights, sunscreen, sandy feet, popsicles, sticky hands. And watermelon. Is there anything more summery than a juicy watermelon dripping down your face and arms? I’m pretty sure there isn’t. So, to celebrate the end of Summer, I give […]

Canned and dried fruit? Rice cakes? We all know that potato chips and cans of sugary soft drinks are terrible for your body, but a new article on Huffington Post’s health blog Healthy Living argues that even rice cakes and granola bars are bad snacks. Sure, chocolatey and peanut-buttery sugar-ladden granola bars might not be great for your health, but what about the healthier granola bar alternatives that are high in fiber, healthy grains, and protein? Read the article, go […]

We here at the Magic Bullet LOVE to hear about all the marathons our fans have run in (especially if they have one of our ING New York City Marathon Magic Bullets…), but we understand that not everyone does. So when we read this article by The Onion, we couldn’t help but share! We’ve all been there. Maybe we’ve even been the ones going on and on. Arbitrary-sounding finish times, cliche phrases, “I never thought I could do it, but […]

exhausted

Last we met, we talked about finding your groove during the NIGHT. Next up: MOVE #4: EXHAUSTION EATING 4.) Determine if you’re eating based on level of exhaustion. Are you eating because you are not tired, not tired ENOUGH, or are TOO tired and want to stay awake? Crazy, right?! If we want the opposite level of tiredness, we turn to food. Let’s face it: sleep via food coma is a thing. So sometimes, if we are not tired – […]
