Intuitive Eating

The Doughtnut Project

Posted on

Have you ever encountered a health professional who blogged about donuts in a positive light? I haven’t. I see plenty of articles that villainize sugar and sweets and claim they are “addictive”, which is not true (more on that in a future post). This might be one of the few posts out there that encourages […]

What is Intuitive Eating?

Posted on

Intuitive eating has radically changed my life. This is no exaggeration. It has changed the lives of several of my clients. This is also not an exaggeration. It is truly a freeing process, but what exactly is it? Intuitive eating is a process-based approach that teaches you how to have a healthy relationship with food […]

Good Stock, Summer 2018

Posted on

It’s still good! You all know I love Good Stock. It’s in my regular rotation of restaurants because it’s affordable, delicious and less than a five-minute walk from my apartment. I reviewed it in January and felt it needed a revisit because of the warmer weather and the addition of some exciting items. The soups […]

Blog Post Revamp

Posted on

If you haven’t heard, I’ve recently made the switch from weight loss to intuitive eating. You can read more about that here. This change has forced me to rethink how I should write my posts. Previously, I was judging foods by an arbitrary scale of healthfulness, meaning I would recommend dishes I felt tasted good, […]

Career Crossroads

Posted on

I cracked. A full on break in my fault line. It’s been happening gradually, subtly since day one of my private practice, maybe even before. But the BIG quake happened several weeks ago and I’ve been in a funk since, the layers of my earth shifting and moving as they figure out where to settle. […]

West~bourne, April 2018

Posted on

You can imagine I follow a ton of food accounts on Instagram. So, when a new restaurant opens up and all the food bloggers descend, I want in on the fun. This was how I happened upon West~bourne, a vegetarian café which was suddenly all over my feed. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s down […]

Le Pain Quotidien, March 2018

Posted on

My French pronunciation is terrible, and my accent even worse. It’s no wonder that for years I avoided saying Le Pain Quotidien aloud. I had no clue how to say it and had never bothered to ask. I eventually overheard someone say the name and decided to go with LPQ because it’s less of a […]

Atla, February 2018

Posted on

I think you guys can surmise I’m into the Mexican food thing. After all, it’s in my blood. Atla is fancy. Not out-of-your-price-range fancy, but this is definitely not food my parents ate on el rancho. The most important part is that the food here is good. Real good. So good that it’s definitely in […]

Mexico City Guide

Posted on

Welcome to my first city guide, the capital of my parents’ homeland: Mexico City! After food, my next passion is travel. One of my favorite things to do is research where to eat in foreign cities. I spend hours scouring travel blogs and reviews because my sole motivation is to avoid a crap meal. Nothing […]

Cafe Clover, February 2018

Posted on

Cursed retail spaces. They’re everywhere. 10 Downing Street was one of them. No restaurant survived the address until Cafe Clover opened its doors a few years back. It is my go-to restaurant for a meal with dietitians or for out-of-towners in need of fiber after a weekend of pasta and wine. It was a welcome […]
