I recently learned that one of the best mushroom soups I have ever tasted was actually made with butter despite being told by countless people it was vegan. I should have realized it the first time I tried it based only the way it coated my spoon but I wanted to believe someone actually took the time to make a vegan soup.
I am raising money for Make A Wish Foundation by biking 300 miles over 3 days. Many of you probably think this will be easy for me but I beg to differ. The studio is only 5 miles one way so biking 100 miles a day is going to be a big challenge, but there are children suffering every day with diseases and it is for these children that I choose to ride.
When training many topics of conversation arise and recently I keep getting asked if there is a difference between cacao, cacao nibs and cocoa. I didn't know the exact answer so I spent a few hours scouring the internet so next time I was asked I could give an actual answer. Cacao and cocoa may sound similar, but both of them are unique when it comes to taste, nutrition, and cost.

Do you have any "difficult" guests coming for Thanksgiving Dinner? Those vegans, vegetarians and picky eaters can make cooking dinner even more challenging.

Since I am one of those guests this year I wanted to give you a few options so you can wow all of your guests...even me! :)
Are you struggling with those last 5 – 10 pounds that you planned on losing before summer? If you are enjoying a glass of wine or two while sitting under the summer stars you are probably sabotaging all of your hard work in the gym! A secret to staying slim in the summer, or any time of year for that matter, is to swap the spirits for sparkling water with a slice of lemon or lime.
