Peanut Butter-Chocolate Meringues Sandwiches I found this recipe from Cooking Light and decided to make these cookies for a party last night and they were surprisingly good! The best part is they are only 70 calories each! But, I have to warn you..it’s not an easy recipe…getting the eggwhites right is pretty tricky. Also, I […]

I saw Giada make this recipe on her show and decided to give it a try last night. It’s a great healthy option for Thanksgiving! It’s pretty easy to make but it just takes time to cook the pears. I cut the recipe in half and also did not use any ice cream or gelato […]
“Can I lose weight with yoga?”. “Will yoga give me arms like Madonna?”. I get asked these questions all the time.

But, be careful not to push yourself too hard in this position especially if you have any knee injuries. TIP: Do not do this move at the beginning of your workout or yoga sequence. Warmup first or do […]
