Crockpottery: Salsa Chicken

29 Dec

2014, along with being the year that I blog more than two times, will be the year of the slow cooker. The crockpot. The supreme vehicle for all things good and tasty in this world. I had my first dance with the slow cooker this fall and it inspired a truly revelatory moment… Why had [...]

Riding the Pain Train

2 Jun

This weekend, I was immersed pain. Riding the pain train, you could say. Source Not in an injured, afflicted kind of way. Thankfully. But because I was studying it. Le neat! This weekend marked my first of many weekend intensives at Tufts Medical School, where I’m enrolled in the Pain Research, Education and Policy program. [...]

You Are What You Consume

4 Apr

I’ve been pondering the adage ‘you are what you eat‘ quite a bit lately. Not in an overt, literal kind of way. If that were the case, I would have long-ago morphed into something, ummm….slightly less recognizable than the Meghan I’ve seen in the mirror for the past 20-something years. Source But also not not [...]

Karma – Is It Really A Bitch?

5 Aug

The notion of karma is a heavily loaded one; widely accepted is the notion that if you commit some transgression, however large or small, any unsavory events that (just-so-happen-to) follow are the result of karmic justice. What you get what you serve. You reap what you sow. What goes around comes around. (Your ma boy, [...]

Hello Lent, Goodbye Struggles

25 Feb

It’s that time again. LENT. The season of denial. Of deprivation. Of sacrificing something in the name of God, Jesus or maybe just something bigger than yourself in hopes of emerging, a mere 40 days later, a purer, more pious version of yourself. Source And it is often customary, at this point, to return to [...]

I bet, at some point in your life, you’ve wondered what the deal with pineapple is. I mean, it looks like…I’m not sure what it looks like but it definitely doesn’t resemble the average fruit. Or any fruit for that matter. Source It’s more sophisticated than your run-of-the-mill orange. Less disposable than a handful of [...]

New Years Resolutionaries

9 Jan

2012 is here. New Years Resolutions are being made and broken all across the nation. If you crane your neck and turn your ear to just the right angle, you can pretty much hear it happening. It’s not unlike the sound of baby birds taking their first chirps after hatching from their shells, only to [...]

Unexpected, and Unexpectedly Good

11 Dec

Sometimes, unexpected things happen. You spill water on your laptop, nearly sending it to a watery grave and losing your unsaved 20 page paper in the process. You get a touch overzealous working out on your elliptical machine and unhinge the elliptical foot-y thing from the…machine, ruining it forevermore. You have an unfortunate encounter with [...]

After the Feast: Healthifying Tips (and Muffins)

29 Nov

Ok, so Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season is officially in full effect. It can be a wise idea to optimize your food intake and activity levels in the days that follow a massive feast. I’m not suggesting getting all crazy-pants with a detox diet, no. Source Rather, I suggest some simple and savvy [...]

The Little Things. Like Pumpkin Breakfastables.

22 Nov

If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s inefficiency. The mere mention of the word sends shivers up my spine. Being the struggleyest muffin in the muffin tin though, I tend to experience no small share of inefficiency in my everyday comings and goings. And lately, I feel like I’ve been wading in an inefficiency [...]
