Produce pancakes

One of the great things about being a teacher is the relationship you develop with students. Sometimes I have some pretty personal in-depth conversations. Other times things are light hearted and fun. People have questions for me or give me some tips. Recently after one of my yoga classes my students and I were talking […]


Super simple chia seeds snack

I was perusing Twitter recently and came upon a recipe from SELF magazine called Make Ahead Chia Pudding Breakfast. It was a simple recipe to follow. So I decided to try it. I mixed the almond milk, chia seeds, honey and vanilla extract. I let it sit in the fridge overnight. I ate half of […]


Spicy cooking

Most weeks I try to explore at least one “new” recipe. I was looking at Hungry Girl’s website and found spicy Thai-style no-cook stir-fry. It sounded yummy so I decided to give it a try. I added the ingredients I didn’t already have to my grocery list. I decided to add a few other ingredients […]


It’s peanut butter time!

Have you seen the 40-year-old Virgin? Remember FRENCH TOAST? (Here’s a clip of that scene. Swearing is involved. So you’ve been warned.) Ha ha! Anyway, years ago Curt and I were watching some diner or cooking show and someone made peanut butter and banana French toast. It sounded amazing. The version they made was super […]

I took yesterday off from work. I just took it easy. I lounged around and watched movies. Eventually I […]


Snacky obsession

Lately I have been having some major cravings for Roasted Seaweed Snacks from Trader Joe’s. They have become my latest snack obsession. I was at Trader’s last week and bought four packs. They went quickly. I kept thinking about those things today. When I got back to Emeryville after the shuttle bus ride I headed […]


Dreyer’s Fruit Bars vs. Popsicle Ice Pops

I have been trying out different treat/snacks lately. Since it is almost summer here I have been having more ice cream. I had the regular Dreyer’s Fruit Bars and I had the sugar-free Dreyer’s Fruit Bars. And last night I tried the sugar-free Popsicle Ice Pops. The SF Dreyer’s are 25 calories. They are really […]


I am loving Fiber One and blueberries

The other night I wasn’t sure what to have for dinner. I was looking in the pantry and I saw that I had some Fiber One Original cereal. I grabbed that and added some blueberries that I had bought to add to my homemade smoothies. I had that for breakfast yesterday, today and for a […]
