Are you ready to hear about my culinary explorations and libations in Santorini? It was mid-week in Santorini, and daughter A and I were looking forward to learning more about the food and wine culture of the region with Santorini Wine Trails.
Are you getting a little bored with summer salads? Maybe it's time to rethink your salad choices.
A healthy salad is low-calorie, filling and packed with nutrients. But, it can easily become highly caloric, less nutritious or boring, depending on what ingredients you choose.
Being a fashionista at heart (although I now wear yoga leggings most days), I so look forward to my yearly visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) Costume Exhibition with my BFF J and BFF N. It is a high point of the summer. This year was no exception. The exhibition was a feast for the eyes and I can't wait to share my photos.
It was day two of my first visit to Greece with my sister N and daughter A. As I mentioned in my previous post, "The Amazing Old World of Athens," we were spending a weekend in Athens and then going for a week's vacation on the island of Santorini.
"Let's plan a trip to Greece," said my daughter A the day after we arrived home from our summer 2016 family vacation to Italy.
"I want to go to Greece," followed my sister N.
Are you hungry?
Are you thirsty?
If not, you likely will be after you read about my fabulous foodie day at the 2017 Fancy Food Show. Last week, I spent four hours walking 362,000 square feet of the Javits Center in New York while sampling goodies offered by 2,600+ exhibiting companies. As a long-term foodie (in my previous career I worked for two major food companies for 30+ years), attending the show and scoping out new products is always fun.
When I was growing up in the Bronx, New York, I loved going to the public library. My mom and I would walk across Mosholu Parkway from our home. Mom would go food shopping—which took a long time because she had to go to the butcher, the bakery and the supermarket.
I went to the library, where I headed straight for the new book section, opening the crisp covers, reading the flaps, flipping the printed pages. I'd stack the books—six was the limit—check them out one at a time and carry the pile in my arms to meet up with mom.
Last month, marked one year since I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training program at Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies.
