This week was hard. As our training progresses, the more miles we have to run and, consequently, the more calories we burn. As of last week, I’ve been burning an average of 800-1000 calories per workout. And I’ll be honest, eating enough to recharge my body throughout the day has been a challenge.


I’ve always loved smoothies. I already shared with you the recipe for my favorite Green Monster, which was my official breakfast for almost a whole year, when I didn’t have the time (or the mind!) to cook for myself early in the morning. By the way, a couple of days ago, I added a few slices of pineapple to it and it tasted wonderful!


Can we talk about the stiletto nail trend for a moment? Is there anyone out there who was just as baffled and confused about this trend as I was? I mean, I can’t be the only person who thinks these nails are incredibly unattractive and flat out scary. (They look like claws to me.)


Call me a dork, but I had no idea what Soba noodles were until not too long ago when I was looking around for gluten-free pasta options. Since then, Soba noodles, which are made from buckwheat, have been a staple in my pantry. Personally, I like to look at the ingredients and make sure the noodles are made from 100% buckwheat, with no wheat or any other kind of flour added. (It also tastes better!)


Last year, in the course of one week, Big Apple hosted a series of unprecedented workshops here in Guatemala—one of which I had the honor of hosting—that was such a huge success, they’ve decided to do it again! That’s right, ladies! Starting tomorrow, Party With The Queen is back! And this year’s workshops look very, very interesting and intriguing (setting the table using traditional Guatemalan fabrics? Sign me up!).
