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 […]

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 […]

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 found […]

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 […]

sleep deprived

Well, it probably isn’t hard to guess, but the less you sleep, the worst you eat. According to two recent studies, a loss of sleep can lead to a dysfunctional appetite. The results of MRI scans were analyzed to see how adults made food decisions after a normal night of sleep and then were compared to how decisions were made by those same people after a night of sleep deprivation. Turns out that when your body doesn’t get the right […]

I don’t know why I think olives are fancy. But I do. Also, you should know, you are speaking to a reformed olive-hater. Yep. I hated olives. Pretty hardcore, actually. Almost  as much as I hated beans. Actually, maybe even more than I hated beans. I don’t know why. I don’t have a reason. I think it was because olives tend to be a bit vinegar-y… kind of like pickles, which I also hated. I kind of still don’t like pickles. […]

In high school I used to spend a lot of time hanging out on my best friends’ families’ couches. Oftentimes I would find myself making bologna sandwiches and eating their leftovers, too. I loved them for letting me into their homes and their kitchens. It’s there that I discovered my love for eating frozen fruit. Plain. This fruit was really meant for smoothies, but I liked it all alone. Still do. But when that wasn’t cutting it for me, I […]

Did you see Chinese Olympian Liu Xiang stumble on his first hurdle in the London Games earlier this week? Even if you didn’t, chances are you’ve heard about it by now. Liu Xiang, who won gold in the 2004 Athens’ 110 meter hurdles event (a 12.87 world-record performance), suffered an injury to his achilles tendon shortly after, rendering him unable to compete like he once did. In the 2008 Olympic games, he walked off the track after a false start […]
