Favorite Food Finds Friday: Ricotta Cheese Edition!

Two weeks ago I started Favorite Food Finds Friday on Hungry Runner. I wanted to make it a weekly event where I share my favorite grocery store finds of the week with you all.

Unfortunately, I totally forgot to share my Favorite Food Finds last week. (Bad blogger!) So, in my second attempt to make a weekly habit out of this, I’ve made a Favorite Food Finds Friday vlog instead. As long as I get my act together (which I totally plan on doing), you can expect a new Food Finds Friday video every week. Yay!

So, press play and check out what my favorite foods of the week are! Read More

Food Shopping Showdown: Trader Joe’s VS. Whole Foods

I shop at Trader Joes almost exclusively. I do my weekly food shopping trip, get everything that I need to prepare my meals and snacks for the week, and I’m done. It’s convenient and affordable, and even though shopping at Trader Joe’s in Manhattan sometimes feels more like trying not to suffocate in a mosh pit, I’ve shopped there long enough to know my way around the store just as well as a runner knows their favorite route. And I also know the best  non-peak food shopping hours, so these days I can get my grocery shopping done in 25 minutes or less. I’m a Trader Joe’s Pro.

But after moving to Manhattan, since I just chose to blindly believe that Trader Joe’s was the best, most affordable, and most convenient grocery store for me, I started to wonder, what about Whole Foods? While living on Long Island I had shopped there occasionally and found it to be pricier than stores like ShopRite or Stop n’ Shop. Plus, everyone in New York calls it “Whole Paycheck.” So I just unquestioningly assumed that I couldn’t afford to do my weekly food shopping there.  Except, I know that I shouldn’t ever unquestioningly assume anything. I was mostly basing my decision off of a stereotype and I wanted to put those judgements to the test and find out if my assumptions were true. So last week when it was time for me to restock my kitchen, I headed for Whole Foods on a quest to answer the question of all questions, is Whole Foods more expensive than Trader Joe’s? Read More

Does Social Media Help Or Hurt Health And Fitness?

As a self-proclaimed social media and blogging addict, it’s really quite baffling how hard it was for me to begin writing this post. How does social media influence health and fitness? I asked myself that same question over and over again, each time feeling like I just couldn’t come up with a satisfying answer because personally, it has a very profound influence on my day-to-day routine and therefore, my health and fitness too.

4 Running Tips From Zap Fitness Running Coach Zika Rea


This post is part of the four-part series “Finding the Fun in Fitness with Reebok.”

I get a lot of questions about running. Which, even though, yes, I have a blog about running, I still find quite flattering because I don’t consider myself a veteran runner. It’s just something that I love to do (and write about) and there’s still so much for me to learn.

Which is why my ears perked up to full attention when Zap Fitness co-founder and running coach Zika Rea shared her top four tips for runners before the start of our workout at the Reebok Women’s Fitness and Lifestyle Event. Read More

Just after I declared my three-week vacation from running, my friend Vicky got in touch with me to find out if I wanted to try 30/60/90 at Equinox with her. What perfect timing! I was on a break from running and on the hunt for new, workouts. My reply was an immediate “Yes!”
