How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Why? Because it’s a holiday that is essentially dedicated to food. And I love food. Yes, I know, we’re supposed to be giving thanks and thinking about Pilgrims, but I’m really just looking forward to the meal.

This Post Grad Life: Is My Office Chair Going to Chunk Me Up?

Things are getting a little depressing on the post-grad front. At night, I enjoy watching The Biggest Loser while I shove a ton of pizza down my throat because I'm so malnourished from a busy day at work. I don't point and laugh, but I certainly indulge in one of those internal chuckles and self-satisfaction that I don't have ripples the size of a tidal wave on my hips.

Intro To (Hanukkah) Cooking: Sweet Potato Pancakes

Hanukkah is coming! Unfortunately, I'm not Jewish and don't celebrate the holiday, but just because I can't indulge in 8 days of presents doesn't mean I can't enjoy everyone's favorite Hanukkah treat: the potato latke.

I’m Not Thankful For Thanksgiving

Unlike the rest of the world, Thanksgiving is my least-favorite holiday. I know, I know—the food, the laziness, the time off from work, the family (well . . . maybe that’s not such a plus)—what’s not to love?

A Vegetarian Thanksgiving? Yes, Please

I’m not a vegetarian, but I have a vegetarian boyfriend (and an aversion to all things Thanksgiving). I’m going to his parents’ house for the holidays this year and, luckily, they’re tolerant of nontraditional main dishes, so we're going to experiment a little.

6 Top Secret Facts About Women

As a group, women do a really good job of hiding our less attractive qualities. We cover up our imperfections with makeup, we squeeze our "winter weight" into some Spanx, and we make our friends take our phones away so the guy we're crushing on doesn't know how crazy we really are.

Food. Body image. Health. Things we think about everyday. With ads on TV, in magazines, on the radio and with restaurants and fast food places changing menus to provide healthier options, it’s not our fault that food is on our minds a little bit too often. But did you know that even thinking about food could be having a dangerous affect on us?

How Much Do You Think About Food?

Whatcha thinking about? If you're anything like me, you're thinking about food. I literally ate about five minutes ago, but that doesn't stop images of delicious dinner selections from flashing through my brain. I blame it on my incessant need to plan and organize (but let's be honest - I just like food).

Get Stoned And Do Fun Things!

Sexy Time: Love Stoned

April 20th, 2009. A day for "relaxing," eating, and…hooking up? Surprisingly, stoned sex is one of the things on many girls’4/20 to-“do” lists that they just haven’t gotten around to. Before you jump right in this Monday, however, I thought I would do a little research and analysis for ya.
