Easy DIY Granola Bars! [Intro to Cooking]

In the summer, I pretty much go hiking every day. Whether it's with my dad or my best friend, hiking is one of my favorite forms of exercise because I don't even realize I'm exercising. This burning of calories requires some form of energy-replenishing, however. It's important to bring water and snacks, especially when the hike is really difficult and takes a long time.

You Can Cook With Tequila! [Intro to Cooking]

Next year I will finally have a kitchen in my dorm. Since I got my room assignment, I've been collecting recipes so my roommate and I can cook our own dinners and not just go out for dinner every night (which I am so sick of!).

Broccoli is a tough vegetable to love -- it's the veggie equivalent of Kim Kardashian really -- but it has potential.

You know, the desire for pepperoni, cheese and sauce? How on earth do I shake that? Through trial and error, I found the solution. And it includes three of my favorite salad greens ever: spinach, arugula and romaine. You'll get tons of nutrients, including iron, along with some major flavor.

Intro to Cooking: Veggie Enchiladas

I'm currently lying in bed with the flu and there's nothing like spicy food to clear up the sinuses. I have a voice like a miniature frog; aches and pains like I'm about to give birth; and it feels like there is a small balloon locked up in my head that won't deflate. I made spicy enchiladas to help -- and of course to get some veggies in me.

Advocates of “eating clean” tout a laundry list of benefits – more energy, better skin, weight-loss, and better muscle definition, etc… They say that one should see a different within a couple of weeks – so I thought, how about a month?

More Often Than Not, “Health” Foods Are Anything But

Processed foods are generally not good for us, regardless of how they are advertised. I’ve lived with roommates who firmly believed that they were on wholesome, perfectly nutritious diets all the while subsisting on Power bars, frozen TV dinners from the health food section of our local grocery store and Gatorade. Just because a product is advertised as a health food does not make it one!

One Month Challenge: No Meat, No Dairy, No Problem, Week Five

Even as I hit my stride and it got easier toward the end, I still get tempted to just get a slice of pizza or chicken teriyaki for a quick dinner, but I try to remember that more often than not, this is what I want and after learning about the ethical reasons of veganism, that food just wouldn’t taste as good anyway.
