Taking a Break…

Hello Beloved Readers! I know it’s been a while since I posted. I have been taking a much needed break from blogging and social networking for a bit. My last post occured on Monday April 15th, which was the day of the Boston Marathon bombing. This event and the weeks that followed were pretty stressful here in Boston. I decided it was a good time to take a break and reflect on some things. I love blogging very much, but balancing my day job with these responsibilities has been extremely challenging and has made me neglect some other areas of my life. So it seemed to be the right time [...]

Friday Links & Carb Love

Another week goes by and March begins to wrap up. I for one can’t wait for April. March has been plagued by lots of snowstorms, colds and the inability to wear cute spring shoes. Things are looking up – when I leave work it is still light out (sometimes) and I am begining to get a bit of spring fever. I have the overwhelming urge to go out and buy sandals and shorts despite the fact that today is a warm 40 degrees. Anyway. Have you checked out my CARBS Pinterest Board yet? I am constantly updating it with lots of carby goodness. I also just started a BACON board, [...]

Farmers Market and Thursday Links

Hello friends. I have some fabulous links for you today. But first, I want to chat a bit about something I feel really really passionate about: Farmer’s markets. Since our Somerville Union Square farmer’s market opened three weeks ago, I’ve been featuring a lot of fabulous things I picked up on this site. I have been getting a bunch of comments and emails about some of the produce I’ve found. Garlic scapes, baby spring onions, salad turnips and purple carrots are just some of the unique produce I’ve found. I get many questions and comments about these things because they are not traditionally available in the supermarket. Which just illustrates [...]

Healthy Friday Links!

Happy Friday! I haven’t posted links in a while and found some interesting stuff online I wanted to share with you. There’s a lot going on right now that I can’t wait to share. For the first time in my life, I’m going to be growing a vegetable and herb garden. I come from a long line of wonderful gardeners so hopefully I’ll be able to figure it out. My seedlings are starting to sprout and I am so excited! Onto the links: Chickens? Contributing to obesity? – HuffPo Do you have a “Type D” personality? It may harm your health – WebMD Long commutes are associated with higher weigh [...]

Friday Links!

Happy Weekend everyone! I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day. I have no plans at the moment, but may have a Guinness in honor of my tiny sliver of Irish ancestry. It’s been a slow blogging week, but I have a lot of great things planned for the next few days. On Sunday, I’ll be hosting a brunch at my mom’s house to try out some new Dannon products. I’m working on a healthy, lower calorie french toast that I think will be super tasty. Keep an eye out for photos and recipes coming on Monday. Now onto some yummy links I discovered while blog [...]
