Landon-Ashworth-Marathon

My giraffe (read: fiance) is bat-shit crazy but I adore him more than salmon skin. Yep. I said it… Wait… Wait… Can I have both… Yes? PHEW! Thank GOD! He’s the type of guy that… When he wants something… He immediately goes after it… If only you knew “our story”… And below is just one such example of how SPUR OF THE MOMENT my “never a dull moment” fiance is… I ran a marathon with absolutely no training.

healthy food taste test

There is no doubt in my mind that when you wander through the aisles of your local grocery store… You wonder if… You’ll see a completely HAMMERED Tony the Tiger juggling bananas while jumping on a trampoline. Oh wait… Just me? But in all “seriousness”… You probably ponder… Whether or not that bag of eye-catching chocolate covered “skinny” popcorn is actually tasty… If you should risk it and buy that fruit and grain no-mess snack for the moments when you’re stuck in traffic [Read On!]

Brad-Gouthro-GiGi-Dubois-Jessica

Today I have TWO sweet treats for you… And they’re not loaded with my HEALTHY sugar-replacing stevia. Instead, they’re packed with the white death that is oh so very tasty. The first sweet succulence: poetic candy that truly rivals Robert Frost’s goodies… Have a bite of some ear dessert (well I guess if you read it aloud?) inspired by this high fructose corn syrup-filled Twix bar… It’s like Rock, Paper, Scissors with facial expressions… #whowon?

You Deserve Applause!

Horse Yoga

I would like to give all of you a round of applause! (Or I guess here… TWO Thumbs Up!) Why exactly? Well because… Some of you wake up at 4 am, run five to ten miles, cook up a protein pancake feast for you (and your family of six? ten? 15? Just you?), send everyone off with a healthy packed lunch (Suck it Subway!) and then you yourself trot on over to work in a sexy polished suit (or if you’re lucky, [Read On!]

Calorie-Free Punishment

Arman of the big man's world and GiGi eats celebrities are not fans of Walden Farms Maple Syrup

Want to play a game… [I was totally going to insert a photo of that CREEPY ASS CHARACTER from the movie SAW but I just can’t… It gives me the WILLIES!

Miss Matcha Has Met Her Match

Matcha Green Tea Powder and GiGi Dubois

If you’ve ever been set up on a blind date before, you know just how traumatizing they can be! Sometimes a little help is necessary! Kiss Me Organics‘ Matcha Green Tea Powder has been struggling for years to find “her” true food soul mate, a companion that compliments her perfectly.

If you blend Chris Harrison, Patti Stanger [Read On!]

Asparagus: Aroused By Spring

GiGi holding limp asparagus

Spring is like Viagra for vegetables and fruits. Did I really just say that? OH YES, YES I DID. And maybe I should warn you right now that this post and video get a little INAPPROPRIATE… So if you cannot handle it, you might want to just leave right now. But anyways, back to my original comment. IT’S TRUE! Produce tends to go from this… To THIS… The second it feels the warmth from the sun’s rays and it hears [Read On!]

The Results of a Single-Blind Experiment

Tumeric

You may or may not know this but I am currently earning my Nutrition Communication Certification from Tufts University. In the current section of this course, we are learning about nutritional studies, specifically the different types of research methods that are executed in order to dispel the… TRUTH! The most recent “credible” peer-reviewed cohort study I read, revealed that: DONUTS ARE HEALTHY! Notice the quotation marks around the word credible, people – That is what we like to call nutrition [Read On!]
