Stiletto Quickie in the Bathroom... Workout While Getting Ready to Go Out


I’m not saying that I workout every time I get ready to go out. However, if I haven’t had time to workout much, I know that I am going to have a serious gorge-fest, or I just want to highlight a few key spots (like arms, calves, chest), I do- yes, a few moves while getting ready to go out. This is my Quickie Workout while getting ready to go out that I happened to have done at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills (a fab hotel- obviously).



Spicy Carrot Ginger Puree

I am addicted to this dish! It’s rich, filling, spicy, taste-bud stimulating, and seems so fatty (though it’s not at all- in fact, it’s fat free!). The cumin adds an almost meaty flavor, the curry brings an exotic element, and the cinnamon is my secret in lots of dishes because it creates this amazing depth of flavor. Beyond the flavors, here are the benefits:



Green Fry: Asparagus, Rainbow Chard, Brussels Sprouts, Mushrooms, Zucchini

Just to clarify, a green fry has nothing to do with frying food. Instead, it is a combo of anything healthy and green in your fridge that you throw into a pan and cook into one of the easiest, healthiest dishes you can make. Plus, you are cleaning out your fridge so that those veggies that you bought last weekend don’t go to waste. And here’s the best thing, your meal is a total Bites with Benefits meal and you’re only consuming about 40 calories per cup! Yes… that’s it!
