Today is my last day of the Hormone Reset diet. I haven’t eaten significant amounts of sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol or red meat in 21 days. Three weeks seemed like a long time when I began the diet, but now that I’m here—and I know it’s such a cliche—it went by in a flash. And […]
The Hormone Reset diet was created by Dr. Sara Gottfried, and it focuses on progressively eliminating foods from your diet that might be elevating certain hormones and causing you to hang onto stubborn fat, even when you’re eating less.

Quinoa has become by BFF since I changed the way I eat earlier this year. I stopped eating some of my favorite things, pasta being one of the big ones. I knew this was going to be a gaping void in my life, especially since plain pasta with butter and salt is one of my favorite lazy indulgences.
I’ve been eating A LOT of salad lately, which is all good except for the fact that all my salads are all pretty much the same. The family is hecka bored and I am too, come to think of it. So, especially with summer coming, I was excited to find this chopped detox salad recipe. […]
When I was invited to “An Evening With India Hicks,” I immediately wanted to attend because I had a vague idea that she was somehow related to the royal family, that she was fabulous and stylish, and that an evening with her should not be missed.
