This is a go-to meal on busy nights. Super fast and easy, no prep required, minimal clean up afterwards, and can double the recipe for lunch/dinner the next day. Also, I swear by seasoning my salmon with EVOO + Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning and have not gotten tired of it.

Servings: 1
Total Time: 15 minutes

  • 4 oz salmon (thawing directions below)
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1-2 TBS Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (or a seasoning you prefer)
  • 8 oz frozen cauliflower rice (approximately half a bag from TJ's or Whole Foods. I usually cook the whole bag and throw the leftovers into something else later in the week) 
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 large cucumber
  • Soy sauce (use coconut aminos if Whole 30) to taste
  • Sriracha to taste

Pull it together
  • Step 1: Slather the salmon in olive oil and then cover the salmon (all sides) with the Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. Set the salmon on an oven safe cooking sheet (I cover the baking sheet with foil to minimize dishes to wash after).
  • Step 2:  Turn your oven on broil and stick the salmon in on the top rack for 6 - 8 minutes depending on how intense your oven is and how pink you like your salmon (you can pull it out and check it at 6 mins to make a decision).
  • Step 3:  While the salmon broils, heat 1 tsp oil of your choice (I use Sesame Oil for this part) in a frying pan. Toss the cauliflower rice + salt and pepper into the pan and cook over medium heat for ~5 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 4:  While everything else is cooking, dice the avocado and cucumber.
  • Step 5:  Scoop cauliflower rice into a bowl and top with salmon, cucumber and avocado. Add soy sauce/coconut aminos + sriracha to taste.  

Hot tips:
  • Thawing salmon: If your salmon is frozen keep it in its wrap, put it in a bowl, and run water over it for awhile until it thaws. Make sure it's not hot water because that will start cooking the salmon.
  • Buying salmon: I buy fresh salmon at Costco and slice it up into single servings when I get it home. I wrap each one in saran wrap, put in a freezer bag or my Jill & Joey Reusable Freezer Bags and freeze until I'm ready to use them. Saves a lot of $$ this way.

It's Sunday (?), this meme was a great reminder of the duality we practice in therapy, and I've been scouring the webs for reading not related to the end of the world. Please share good reads with me and have a great week!

Netflix Rules Pop Culture (CNBC): Netflix shows/docs have surpassed the most popular network shows. What does this mean?

The Biases That Punish Racially Diverse Teams  (HBR): Studies have shown that diverse teams create more innovation, perform better, the list of benefits is long. However multiple studies show diverse teams are perceived to have more conflict, even when they don't. What do we do about this?

Why is coronavirus so much worse for the Hasidic community? (NYT): This is a coronavirus related article, but since we all just watched Unorthodox and are Netflix experts on the Hasidic community, this is a timely piece.

What's going on with Kim Jung Un? (Vox): Rumors are swirling about North Korea's dictator's possible death...what we know and what it means for the future. ICYMI - I'm REAL into North Korea. If you haven't yet delved into this topic I highly recommend spending some quarantine time with The Orphan Master's Son and Nothing to Envy.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister May Be the Most Effective Leader on the Planet (The Atlantic): Another coronavirus piece but #girlpower.

Marriage and Men's Health (Harvard Health): Why are married men healthier than unmarried men? And even more likely to recover from cancer?

This is not the prettiest meal I've made but it is a 4.999 star meal. Even Harrison, who is the v. particular, gave this a full 5 stars. And it's really easy to pull together (tbh the hardest part of this meal is getting your hands on the gnocchi at Trader Joe's).

Servings: 3
Total Time: 15 minutes

  • Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage & Butter (picture of the bag below)
  • 4 Italian style chicken sausages (TJ's has lots of options, I like the hot Italian) 
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
Pull it together:
  • Slice your sausages into 1/2 inch discs
  • Chop up the spinach (personal preference)
  • Put your frozen gnocchi in a frying pan with 2 TBS water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • After 3 minutes add in the sausage and cook with the gnocchi and sausage uncovered for 3-5 minutes, stirring occassionally
    • Note: if your sausage is not pre-cooked (the label on the package will say "pre-cooked" of it is), start cooking your sausage in a pan over medium heat while the gnocchi is cooking. Most TJ's chicken sausages are pre-cooked.
  •  In the last minute add in the spinach and stir to combine.
Because the butter + sage has so much flavor, the only thing I add in is red pepper flakes at the end.

The gnocchi and sausage I use:

As most of us adjust to not leaving the home (s/o to my essential workers who are out there every day), I am tempted to buy exclusively athleisure. Lucky for us, it's 2020 and most athleisure is almost professional enough if you work in a business-casual workplace. Here are a few of my favorites that double as work and athleisure, and are worth the investment for their dual purpose. Important note: these all pass my booty test - aka I don't look like I'm auditioning for a hip hop video OR 20 lbs heavier in these pants (it's a fine line).

Exhibit A: Senitas Weekend Joggers  These are my FAVORITE pair of joggers - I have them in the black and fossil. So incredibly soft and flattering. Bonus points for being a small woman-owned business.

Exhibit B: Lululemon On The Fly Pant These are stretchy and flattering.

Exhibit C: Athleta Brooklyn Pant. I swear by these. They do not - I repeat DO NOT - wrinkle which makes them an excellent travel pant. I have worn these multiple times on vacay between washes.

 What other athleisure pants could potentially double as business casual?

Work From Home: professional athleisure pants

Hunting the internet for articles not related to coronavirus.

The Hollywood Con Queen (Marie Claire): This is a looongg read but really what else do we have to do right now? This follows the investigation of a con artist who posed as top female Hollywood execs and scammed hundreds of people looking for their big break. Cannot wait for this Netflix mini-series (they have to right?).

Tips for Emotional Regulation in Uncertain Times (Psychology Today): Tips to feel our feelings and process right during high-stress times. Good tools even post-covid.

The Impersonators (Buzzfeed News): This is a fascinating (and disturbing) investigation into millions of fraudulent public comments and emails used by lawmakers as data points in decision-making. I learned a lot in this, like where your data goes when it's stolen in a breach (and how it gets stolen), and how consultancy firms are used in public decision-making.

Netflix's Unorthodox: the real parts vs. the fictionalized parts (Oprah Magazine): If you haven't watched Unorthodox go do it and then read this. The book is going straight to my quarantine reading list.

Body of Lies (Longreads): Great read via Hitha's #5SmartReads (posted daily in her IG stories). This quote, whoooshhh:
In a world where women are made to feel that we are lesser than, weaker than, we are often taught that sex and appearance are our only weapons with which to compete — and it’s pervasive: in the workplace, on social media, even in politics. I don’t disagree with using sexuality as one way to move through this world. The issue is that society has made this our primary mode of leverage, and if we exist or age outside of society’s prescribed standards of beauty — narrow ideas about age, race, shape, size — we often lose our perceived power. As single women, as wives, as figures of desire.

How to Be an Inclusive Leader Through a Crisis (HBR): Things we should always keep in mind but are especially crucial right now.

Desperate for distractions from the current news cycle? Me too! Have invested a lot of bathroom reading into keeping up with my favorite celebrity friends:

How are Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes handling the stay-at-home order?  In a hands-on, no nanny kinda way. I love that they protect their kids' privacy but at the same time really want to know everything about their kids.

In other Mickey Mouse Club news, Brit shouted out JT on her IG but what really threw me is that this breakup was TWENTY YEARS AGO?? 20??? Are we sure? How old ARE we? 

Aunt Becky's daughters' "rowing pictures" used to get them into USC came out. Does it really just take a picture of someone on an exercise machine? Does anyone believe a true athlete was working out in cotton in 2017? The more details I get the more confused I actually get. This Admissions Counselor's quote is really the only thing that makes sense to me:
"Based on what I knew of her video blogging schedule [I] highly doubted she was involved in crew," the counselor had said.

Long read about how Harry and Megs are doing. I am #TeamMeg all day.

Speaking of Harry and Meg, their replacement is as about as interesting as beige wallpaper and has begun duties. Snooze. 

SBTB reboot trailer is out. Zack is governor of California, Slater is a gym teacher, and Jesse is Show Girls.

First family: Demi and kids have been documenting the big blended family's life inside on social media

Last week I flagged that Bruce Willis and Demi Moore are quarantining together. Everyone says he and his current wife are fine, and she has continued to comment fomo-esque remarks on all of their v. staged IG pix, which have been coming through a constant flow.

At the beginning of 2020 (I think? tbh time right now is pre-covid and during-covid so all I know is this happened pre-covid) I asked for everyone's favorite books they read in 2019, and am going to try to get through as many as possible in 2020. A hack here is that the 2019 best sellers are much easier to get at the library (aka free) in 2020, plus I've got some time in quarantine to do some reading.

*note: if you can, order from local bookstores - a lot are delivering books via Postmates and other apps! Let's keep our neighbors open! I get most of my e-books and audiobooks from the public library.

My Favorites:

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (now a show on Hulu so I can play my favorite game where I point out everything the book did better)

Educated by Tara Westover: Tara's incredible memoir of growing up in an impoverished survivalist family and self-educating herself to get into BYU and eventually Harvard and Cambridge.

Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand: A woman's husband dies in a tragic accident, and her self-investigation uncovers a whole double life he's been leading. Best guilty pleasure.

House of Gold by Natasha Solomons: I love historical fiction, and this story based on the Schwarzchild family through the early 20th century is fantastic.

In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson: Based on the true stories of an American ambassador's family living in Berlin through Hitler's reign.

2020 Book List

I only very recently returned to eating wings again after a hiatus due to working at a (disgusting) wing joint in college that left my hair smelling like fried wings for days and me deeply scarred from watching health code violation wings made in a kitchen cleaned by drunk college kids at the end of a night (note: this joint has since been closed for, you guessed it, health code violations!). My return to the world of wings was actually not by choice, it was that wings were the last chicken left at Costco in the beginning of COVID panic, and so began my journey back to eating (sanitary) wings.

This recipe is super easy, takes about 25 minutes total (less than 10 mins of real work and that's what matters).

Servings: 2
Total Time: 25 mins

  • 1 lb of chicken wings, thawed
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil (this has a higher smoke point so helps the wings come out crispy - you can really use whatever oil you want)
  • 1 TBS of baking powder (NOT baking soda! The baking powder gives the wings a nice lil crust) 
  • 1 TBS Seasoning of your choice (if DIYing it I like a combo of paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, and garlic powder)
Pull it together:
  • Step 1: Throw all the ingredients together (I put them in a ziplock bag) 
  • Step 2: Mix everything together until the wings are evenly coated (I shake the ziplock bag until everything is mixed. Classic Shake n Bake - PS did someone actually make money marketing a product as a "Shake N Bake" and was it anything more than a plastic bag???) 
  • Step 3: Spread out the wings on the air fryer - make sure they're not touching each other! I have an extra rack I can add into mine so I cook them in 2 layers.
  • Step 4: Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 15 minutes, shaking halfway through. (Note: I check mine at 15 and sometimes give it another shake and let them fry another few minutes until they are to my desired crisp).
Leftovers: reheat in the air fryer the next day on 400 for 5 minutes and they're good as new.

Hot Tips:
  • I buy all my chicken organic at Costco and freeze it. This is the most budget-friendly way I've found to do chicken and Netflix told me Costco meat is reliable. 
  • To thaw it, put your chicken (in its bag) in a room temperature bowl of water for 1ish hour.
  • If I don't cook all the chicken I thawed (solo eating nights), I wrap the remaining raw chicken in plastic wrap, then put it in a freezer bag with ALL the air squeezed out and re-freeze it.
  • NO SAUCE IN THE AIR FRYER!!! Speaking from experience, this will smell bad for a long time and take a very very long time to clean up. I haven't tried saucy wings, will report back.
  • There is only one rule with wings: do.not.leave.meat.behind. I am personally offended by the amount of meat people leave on chicken bones (yes, this is something I had to overcome working at a wing joint and yes I'm judging you).
  • I don't know how legit or sanitary any of this is so do it at your own risk. I CAN confirm this is more sanitary than the way my college joint stored meat so there's that.

And that's it! I don't even dip these in sauce, they are so flavorful and crispy on their own. My favorite side dish for wings is arugula + roasted broccoli tossed in an EVOO drizzle + lemon juice squeeze + salt and pepper.

About a year ago I decided to hop on the bandwagon and transition to non-toxic products. When I mentioned this to my doctor she said "oh good, that will reduce your risk for some cancers and and the potential for auto-immune flair ups" and I was like, excuse me???? I've been asking you for years for advice and you tell me to eat well and exercise?! But ANYWAY. The definition of 'non-toxic' and 'natural' is debatable and unregulated so it's crucial to do research - which, as someone who doesn't have hobbies, I would say reading/research/useless deep dives are the closest thing to a hobby that I have. So here we are blogging about it.

One of the first products I switched was deodorant because, isn't everyone doing it right now? I couldn't find any definitive research saying the ingredients in regular deodorant will kill you, but I did check my deodorants on EWG (see Using EWG Ratings at the bottom of this post) and saw my Secret Clinical Strength deo was a 5 out of 10. Yikes. So here's my experience (note: all our body's are different and will react differently to deodorants, this is my experience as a sweaty person):

My reviews:

EWG Rating: 2. Cost: $9

  • Can get it anywhere (Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon)
  • Price
  • Gave me a v. uncomfy rash (which taught me I need to search for baking soda free deos)
  • Turned the pits of my white shirts yellow /: 
  • Gritty texture

EWG Rating: 1. Cost: $12

  • No rash!
  • Love the scents

Con: THE only con that matters is that this deodorant was not effective enough for my level of sweat.

Primally Pure Charcoal (the one all the influencers were pushing back in Jan - I gave into the marketing!)
EWG Rating: 2. Cost: $16

  • Pretty effective
  • No rash

  • Can only get it via the Primally Pure website
  • The scent was not for me
  • Once you add shipping it's $20+ 

Native (in my current rotation)
EWG Rating: 1. Cost: $11

  • LOVE the scents (a few of yall on IG said the scent impacted the level of effectiveness for you)
  • Can get it anywhere (well Target and where else matters?)
  • Nice texture

  • Not ALWAYS the most effective 

Kopari (in my current rotation)
EWG Rating: 4. Cost: $11


  • Love the scent
  • Effective
  • Can buy at Sephora so easy to add on to get free shipping
  • Love the texture

  • A lot of people in my IG poll reported that it foams when they exercise - I haven't experienced this (or, I haven't noticed it).

Additional crowd-sourced recommendations: 

Tips for making the switch (mine and crowdsourced via Instagram)
  • The transition can be...smelly (which is why quarantine is a great time to do it). This is because our bodies are essentially detoxing everything the aluminum in other deodorants has been blocking. This lasts a few weeks and then things get back to normal.
  • I alternate. This may be in my head, but I swear my body gets immune and I have to switch it up every few months.
  • Natural deodorant is different - I reapply a few times a day. 
  • Especially during the transition plan for a clean bra every day (wooosh they hold in smells don't they!)

Using EWG Ratings: Environmental Working Group rates products based on the safety of the chemicals in the product. EWG Verified means there is no trace of any possible cancer-causing/dangerous/bad for you chemicals. 1 is the next safest, 10 is the least safe.

I love celebrity and/or influencer gossip and it has been SUCH a welcome distraction from the current news. The stories I'm following closely:

Jennifer Aniston popped into ex-bf John Mayer's IG live and and posted a laughing-cry emoji when he got emotional. I think he's a dick and deserves to get clowned at any possible opportunity, but Jen's reaction to me sounds like a worst-case scenario ex situation (you know when you accidentally join someone's IG live and you're like shitshitsittttt now I have to stay! And then accidentally hit send on the wrong emoji - possibly speaking from experience).


Florence Pugh (?) and Zack Braff went IG official, and IG has a problem with the 24 year old dating a 45 year old. She's not here for the bullying. I personally prefer Zack's TV bff Donald Faison with Cacee Cobb (#Newlyweds).

Nordstrom will not be renewing their contract with influencer Ariel Charnas after her public coronavirus "escape" documentation. I'm trying to come at this from a compassionate standpoint - I'm not a mother of five in a high rise apartment in NYC who tested positive for Coronavirus, but these actions put so many people in danger. It's a no for me, dog.

All the celebs are posting their quarantine cooking tutorials. I'm sorry but I do not for one second believe Halle Berry eats cheesy bacon-stuffed chicken.

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore are self-isolating together in MATCHING PAJAMAS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!??!? ISN'T HE MARRIED?! Would you quarantine with your ex? Would you be cool with your spouse quarantining with THEIR ex? I have 10000 questions and 0 answers.

This is one of my favorites and comes together in about 15 minutes. I usually make two servings of this so I can lunch on it the next day, the noodles keep in the fridge fine from dinner time to lunch time.

Salmon Soba Bowls
Servings: 1
Total Time: 15 minutes
  • 4 oz. salmon (see below for thawing instructions)
  • 2 tsp olive oil 
  • 1 TBS Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning (or a good sesame substitute)
  • 1 band of Soba noodles
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of green beans or broccoli or veg of your choice
  • 2 TBS Soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • Green onions, sliced (like one stem-ish of them - I don't know how measuring works for these)
  • Sriracha (to taste)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach or kale or green beans (whatever veggie you can sneak in)
    • If you want to add in some more veggies, carrots and celery taste great in this too. Not mandatory.

Pull it together:
  • Step 1: Cook the Soba noodles according the package instructions
  • Step 2: While the noodles are cooking, slather the salmon in olive oil and then cover the salmon (all sides) with the Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. Set the salmon on an oven safe cooking sheet (I cover the baking sheet with foil to minimize dishes to wash after).
  • Step 3: Turn your oven on broil and stick the salmon in on the top rack for 6 - 8 minutes depending on how intense your oven is and how pink you like your salmon (you can pull it out and check it at 6 mins to make a decision).
  • Step 4: Slice up your green onions
  • Step 5: Mince your garlic
  • Step 6: Saute your veggie of choice on the stove (for broccoli- toss in olive oil, season with salt & pepper, and cook over medium heat for about 5 mins. Green beans a little less cook time)
  • Step 7: Throw your finished Soba noodles into a frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, half the onions, soy sauce, sauteed veggie of choice, and some sriracha and mix together for 3 minutes.
  • Step 8: Transfer the noodle combo to a plate or bowl and add your finished salmon. Garnish with the rest of green onions.

Hot tips:
  • This is a weekly meal in my house. I rotate the veggies I use to spice things up a bit. Really anything goes.
  • Thawing salmon: If your salmon is frozen keep it in its wrap, put it in a bowl, and run water over it for awhile until it thaws. Make sure it's not hot water because that will start cooking the salmon.
  • Buying salmon: I buy fresh salmon at Costco and slice it up into single servings when I get it home. I wrap each one in saran wrap, put in a freezer bag or my Jill & Joey Reusable Freezer Bags and freeze until I'm ready to use them. Saves a lot of $$ this way.

Weeknight Dinners: 15 Minute Salmon Soba Bowls

Thursday, April 9, 2020

Looks like a lot of us are working from home for quite awhile (shoutout to our frontline workers like medical professionals, public transit employees, grocery store employees, and other essential employees who are out there risking lives while I have the privilege to work from the safety of my home). Prior to COVID I worked from home about once per week and spent a huge amount of time studying at home during grad school. I received some crucial tips from a group of Occupational Therapists I worked with, plus some tips from my therapist when I felt so overwhelmed at home because I couldn't separate work and school from my me-time. Here are the top tips that are keeping me somewhat sane right now:

The Office Setup
  • The space: I set up a corner of our guest room to be my office. This (usually) prevents Harrison from wandering into the background of my video calls and helps me with boundaries- when I'm in that room I'm working, when I'm not in the room I'm not working. If you don't have a separate room even picking a corner or space of the home is helpful here.
  • Natural light: This is a game-changer for my mood because we NEED natural light, plus it makes you look better on video calls. I set up my desk right in front of the window (it requires a bit of squeezing and rearranging of the guest bed that is not feng-shui but is good for my mood).
  • Desk chair: Desk chairs are $$$$ and I'm just not committed enough to this to invest in a good office chair so I DIYed it. I have an old kitchen chair with a padded seat and a $26 lumbar support pillow. The OTs told me my knees need to be at a 90 degree angle when I'm working, so I have an Amazon box for my feet to sit on that gets my knees to the right angle (this helped immensely with hip pain I had a few years ago).
  • LIGHTS: I've discussed this before but when yall join a video call and have one lamp on in the room, you look like an anonymous witness on Dateline trying to protect your identity. You too can have a Love is Blind production-level set in your home office with just a few extra lamps and by keeping your main lights on. I found my lamps around the house and love my little LED desk lamp that, yes, shines right on my face in video calls for that professional set look. Harrison calls my home office "the interrogation room" because of how bright I keep it. 
  • Keyboard placement: The OTs told me my elbows need to be at a 90 degree angle while typing which took some mix and match with my chair and desk setup. Once I got this right, my shoulder pain disappeared within a week. They also recommended a split keyboard to protect my wrist, but these are pricey!
  • Computer setup: While sitting up straight, our eyeballs should be looking straight into the center of the computer screen. This required me to do some minor engineering by putting my laptop stand on top of a game box. Not cute but good for the neck and ensures you don't sit hunched over all day.
  • Plants: I have a black thumb, I kill plants just by looking at them but have read a lot about how good it is for us to have plants around so I have a succulent on the desk that is extremely hard to kill. We'll see if it makes it through my isolation. And don't you worry, Amazon is delivering succulents.

Crowdsourced Suggestions 
Crowdsourced via Instagram poll
  • If working from home with a partner, make up a fake coworker to blame (Donna didn't do this dishes again!)
  • Scheduled breaks
  • Stand up at least once an hour
  • Stick to office hours schedule so you don't end up working all day/night
  • Burn a delicious smelling candle to keep you feeling zen and happy
  • Remember to eat! If you get sucked into work it's hard to step away and then we get hangry
  • Have familiar coworkers check in with audio calls so you can walk around while you talk
  • Keep your same morning routine but use commute time to dance party/read/meditate

Ok. That's a lot but hopefully helps our bodies stay right during this time at home. What else should be included in the home office?

PS: Thanks for sticking this out as we go through a rebrand/redesign. Over the next week+ this space will get easier to navigate and better to look at on mobile.

I kept saying I would go back to writing when I had more time, and just like that a global pandemic strikes and I'm quarantined in the house for weeks (months?). So we're back.

Things are different because I'm different, and because Migos destroyed my killer SEO, but same values, same idea, just a little more grown up and a rebrand. Keeping my URL the same because figuring out starting from scratch or creating a new URL or whatever seems like a very impractical use of time. I'll be incorporating some redesign stuff over the next few weeks and as always - love your feedback, and thanks for the patience, this will get prettier and easier to navigate by the day.

Excited to reconnect and to be back in the game and thank you for the continued support over the years!
