Today was a terrific Tuesday because I started the morning off with a great Bikram session, got to enjoy a delicious vegan lunch with one of my best friends, accomplished a lot at work, and I ended the day with a lovely dinner. I thouroghly enjoyed Bikram this morning. Our teacher was much more understanding this morning and caring of the class. I liked how this teacher encouraged every single...
dperker: Saucony strong commercial
Woohoo! Its my third Thursday in DC! Anyways, this morning I went to Bikram Yoga and it was pretty good, much better than Tuesday’s class at least. It took a little bit more to wake up this morning seeing that yoga class started at 6:15am and I have to walk there, so I woke up at 5:30am. I have realized what a difference just 30 minutes extra minutes make. However, as soon as I...
Running in the Rain
This morning I woke up to…. a rainy Monday. Instead of being disappointed by today’s weather I was pumped to run in the rain. Nothing beats a warm weathered rainy run! Happy Monday!

One of the many things I love about tofu is its versatility in recipes. When I buy tofu, I normally by a block of firm tofu, split it in half, use one half and save the other for another night or the next day’s lunch. The other night after a long day, I came home and whipped up a spectacular tofu stir fry. Into the stir fry pan I threw two hand fulls of collard greens, broccoli, red...
Second week and yummy pasta night!
So far my second week on the job has been great! I’m still having a lot of fun, but the workload has definitely increased. I do not mind the increase though, I’m here to do work and at least I love what I am doing. I have also fixed my daily routine for the most part! OK so I used to wake up, eat breakfast, and then go workout after I got off work. Now I wake up, have half a banana and...

On Saturday I went to Busboys and Poets and ordered the Vegan Tofu Scramble with a...
New place with new vegetarian restaurants= foodie...
I am in a new place and one of my favorite things to do whether I am on vacation, not on vacation, or have completely moved is to find the best vegetarian restaurants in the area. I am not 100% vegetarian or vegan, but I love to eat this way majority of the time. This new city I am in now, is full of vegetarian restaurants and I can not wait to try them all out and tell you about them. Stay...
Shrimp.... its whats for dinner
Hello followers! I want to apologize again for the lack of tumblr posts, I just got home from the beach yesterday. While we were at the beach we ate lots and lots of seafood, which is wonderful because my family loves seafood. At least two of the nights we boiled a big pot of shrimp. Shrimp may be small but these tiny crustaceans are full of flavor and what I like to call “pure...
Sorry followers for not updating lately, I am at the beach with my family and have tried to not be on the computer as much as possible. I wanted to give some updates though: 1) LOVE my Vibram shoes! I will say though, a few hours after my first run in them my calves were barking at me. My calves hurt even more the next morning, I felt like an old lady walking around the house. I went and did...
