Dallas Restaurant Review: HG Sply Co

HG Sply Co Bowl

What is a healthy meal? To some people, it’s one that’s low in calories. They will eat a steady diet of Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and Lean Cuisine, and think they’re doing something good for their body. In my opinion, that’s not always the healthiest way to go. A low calorie diet will lead to weight loss, but isn’t necessarily high in nutrients or really good for your body. Don’t get me wrong, I have been counting calories using MyFitnessPal (friend me!) religiously for several months… but I also recognize that sometimes things that are good for me aren’t necessarily low in …

Review: LYFE Kitchen Grocery Meals

One of the perks of attending Wanderlust’s Yoga in the City a few weeks ago was getting to try a lot of great healthy vendors at the booths next to the “yoga meadow.” I was pretty impressed with the lineup – while I’ve been to some “healthy living” events that have vendors I would consider to be low-cal or low-fat but not necessarily healthy, I thought the Yoga in the City crew did a great job lining up a lot of vendors that I really loved and whose products I could see myself purchasing. One of those vendors was LYFE Kitchen, …

Southern Weekend in Chas

After the marathon (full race report coming tomorrow!), I headed back to my hotel to shower… and stretch. I was actually quite sore, and I had an annoying pain in my left quad. It didn’t feel like normal marathon soreness, and the flat course didn’t really lend itself to quad pain, so I was (and am) still perplexed as to what it could be. It’s very concentrated in one small area, but also incredibly tender to the touch – so even brushing my leg with my hand hurt. What the heck? For now, I ignored it besides some gentle stretching …

Restaurant Review: Per Se

After my brunch on Saturday morning, I went on a self-imposed fast for the rest of the day. Big things were brewing: I was off to check out the New York Times-rated best restaurant in New York City, Per Se. My good friend from college, Barry, works in investment management. As part of his career path, he was required to study and pass the Chartered Financial Analyst exam series – three very difficult tests that each require months of preparation and have something like a 30% pass rate. It takes most people multiple tries to pass certain parts of the …
