New age food logging

The one thing I admire about crossfitters is their dedication. They come into the cell time after time and take a beating or two from a chipper or Kelly or Fran or some other wod on crack and then they write it down as evidence! Why? Because journals help you measure performance… you don’t see and know how far you have come along unless you remember where you started and what better proof than to see it written down. The same rules apply when it comes to your nutrition. In order to make serious changes to your nutrition lifestyle youContinue Reading >>

Fro – Yo. A new age fad or health conscious craze?

I remember the days of walking over to the local Milpitas town center and indulging in my weekly soft serve at Yogurt Street (I think that was the name). It was a simple soft serve with some toppings and cost about 50 cents, probably why it went out of business and more recently have been replaced by the hottest trend… fro-yo. Over the last few years yogurt shops have been popping up all over the bay area with Red Mango and Pink-berry being pioneers in the industry. It took me a while to get into the tart flavor of theContinue Reading >>

Creatures of Habit

Another holiday weekend has come and gone and it’s time to get back on track. It seems that everyone including myself is complaining about all the food splurges lately.

Ruffled Feathers…

Drum roll please…. Introducing the newest addition to the downtown San Jose restaurant scene: Ruffled Feathers. This place is located next door to the yoga studio I teach at and has been enticing locals over the last few months; advertising fresh, organic and delicious food. I walked by today and they were finally open so I peaked in to take a look and ended up ordering a fresh eatery salad and homemade basil lemonade. I walked over to the pastry bar area to wait for my food and chatted it up with Tracy, the friendly pastry chef, who also educatedContinue Reading >>


Being a yogini and a crossfitter I strive to find balance in my physical workouts as well as my nutrition, sometimes this can be challenging due to differing philosophies, good thing I am always up for an experiment. The other day my Ayurvedic practitioner told me to start using ghee when cooking. My initial response was a disgusted look and the words “No that’s not going to work, what else can I do?” I have distinct childhood memories of various Indian food gatherings where the byproduct of a tasty meal was a puddle of ghee in my plate, maybe that’sContinue Reading >>
