kitchen beautician: strengthening hair after shedding & breakage

    I’ve been having some health issues recently. Well, I’ve had the health issues, but they’ve intensified recently. Usually your skin and hair are among the things that will go awry. Last year I found out that I have perioral dermatisis, which is a form of rosacea/acne. This came as a total shock to […]

a quickie w/ shari : jerk chicken burgers, well sandwiches

I did a water fast a couple of weeks ago and on one of my hungriest nights, I planned out my meals for the next few weeks. One of those meals : jerk chicken burgers w/ healthy coleslaw; made with ground chicken, homemade jerk seasoning, and a healthy coleslaw that consisted of cabbage, carrots, sesame oil, and […]

a quickie w/ shari : caribbean (vegetarian) collard greens

So, I’m born and raised in Atlanta, but my roots are in the Caribbean. Collard greens weren’t really on the menu in my house growing up. And although I cook alot, greens still weren’t on my menu! I dunno what prompted me to want to make greens one day, but I took bits & pieces […]

You’ll need : 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts chopped 1 pack of Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage ( 2 links in a package) […]

I remember having friends over one night in high school and not knowing what we wanted to eat, so I whipped up some homemade meatballs real quick. I’m sure that they weren’t as good as these though 🙂 . I kept seeing spaghetti squash all […]


  I’m pretty sure that tomorrow will be my last full day of this fast! I kinda feel like a p***y for ending 4 days shy of the goal, but I feel so GOOD, that I can’t really be hard on myself. I also made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t just stop abruptly; […]

💦my 14 Day Water Fast : Day 7

I did a 5k yesterday! I went into it planning to do jogging intervals, but also listening to my body and not overdoing anything, but I amazed myself with the energy I had during the entire race. I still did jogging intervals and the times that I ran, I felt great. Now…once I got home yesterday […]
