Easy Recipes: Cauliflower Fried Rice

I decided to go the Ketogenic route four weeks ago at the encouragement of a friend of mine who now looks fabulous, by the way, 5 months after she’s started on it. I was hesitant at first, not because I don’t think I can give up the carbs and sugar, but because I wasn’t sure I could afford it. You see, it would mean having to substitute many of our food products to keto-friendly versions. Later on, after reading up on it and studying my pro’s and con’s, I realized it doesn’t have to be complicated. Of course some substitutes […]

How Many Procedures are Recommended During a Mommy Makeover?

Being pregnant and having a baby is a joyous time in your life when you look forward to bringing a new child into the world. Unfortunately, this beautiful experience also takes a toll on your body.

I’ve always been vocal about my favorite kitchen in the South – Feed 5000. I love Chef Len (and her family!) and I love her food. I also happen to be a slow but sure convert of her advocacy — Real Food. What is Real Food? Chef Len clarifies that real food simply means healthy food.

Learning something new…like brush lettering

I read once that it’s common for women who hit the age of 40 to try out new things and explore more possibilities. They said that there’s a sudden sense of the value of time and how fast it runs that we become bolder in setting aside our inhibitions to go for the things we really want to do in life. Maybe in my case, when I got married, I decided to live my life. I used to be so obsessed with my so-called career, I did not give time to other things outside my gigs, rehearsals and workshops. The only […]
