(Vegan) Reading Is Fundamental

My trainer is anti-veganism and anti-vegetarianism. She is concerned that I will not get adequate protein on a vegan plan, even for a short period. She also doesn’t believe I can go without cheese for more than a few weeks. I must admit she had me there.With her sage advice in mind, I’ve come up…

Where Is The Love?

When you spend a glorious Southern California day in November running errands, standing in line and being royally pissed off by people; there is only one thing left to do….EAT.

J’adore….The Bagel Broker

I know I ragg on Los Angeles alot; I can’t help it. How else do I prove my loyalty to the city of my birth?The city that I fled so hastily, nine years ago. Every New Yorker living in Los Angeles feels an overwhelming obligation to make it clear that they are only in LA for the weather. Goodness knows…

Go Fish

I was something of an anomaly among my friends when I was growing up. They loved going to McDonald’s for lunch everyday. It was Big Macs and Quarter Pounders with cheese. I would accompany them, but I only ate fries and the little apple pie that came in a little cardboard box.  I was raised on…

So Good, So Right

OK, I know I said I was going to try doing a vegan thing every few days, as a way to ease my taxed digestive system.I’ve done fairly well, so far, but when the urge for a good, old fashioned American breakfast strikes…. Surrender! If you’re anything like me, that means diving fork- first and ankle…

Market Day…L.A. (pt.1)

I have it from reliable sources that Paris has had a not so fantastic summer, on the weather front. It has been tres mal as they say. This knowledge has filled me with more than my usual bit of arrogance as I spend yet another day in the glorious Los Angeles sunshine. I’ve not counted,…

Keep It Simple

I think I gave friends the wrong impression when I informed them that I was determined to drop some weight. I say this because they seem to think I meant I was willing to live on green leaves, nuts and berries. Needless to say, that was never my intention. I still believe in a hearty…

Doggie Heaven?

When it comes to les chiens, Angelenos go all out. I wonder if this kind of thing could be big in Paris. I don’t imagine so; the french are too practical, I think. I can not imagine them going to a doggie bakery or doggie boutiques. But, I could be wrong.Luna loves this bakery. Unfortunately…

Silenced By The Lamb

This birthday weekend of mine is proving to be a challenge as far as my caloric intake is concerned.Today was lunch with friends and all I can say is I enjoyed every morsel. I can’t even speak about how dee-lish everything was. Aaah, Greek cuisine…. lamb skewers with brown rice and veggies! Lamb, red pepper,…

What The…..

I thought it was a fluke when I stumbled upon gluten-free crepes here in Los Angeles.The madness continues…. gotta admit, very de-lish!
