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.

Welcome, Magic Bullet, to my humble abode. I’m so excited for all sorts of multi-purposing in our future together. But what to start with? Maybe something easy. And healthy. I read lifestyle blogs all day long and easy and healthy seems to be the trend nowadays so why not? I decided to try out the Lean Green Smoothie featured on Camille Styles blog. I adapted it a little and my ingredients are listed below. Here are the players: Pretty healthy […]

marathon

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 – […]

There’s this whole debate in the blogosphere about the blurring of reality and fiction. In the sense, that sometimes you write what you think people want to read as opposed to what you really think or you begin omitting truths. Well, I have a truth to tell you that I don’t tell a lot of people. You ready? I don’t like pancakes. There. I said it. “Blasphemy!” you say. “Who doesn’t like pancakes?!” you ask. Yup, that’s me—the weirdo who […]

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”?

There are five strategies which I’ve […]

pina

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 […]
