You are not going to find me complaining about the heat.  Making jokes about my office being a 2-for-1 sauna and office? You bet.  It just means I can save the money and not splurge on the sauna desk I have been eyeballing.  (But seriously, though I kinda want that thing…) I think I am

While some food trends come and go, I think there are a few that I am likely to stick with.  Like my obsession with kale and green smoothies.  And my love affair with my Vitamix.  (Sometimes I do yoga, remove my makeup with coconut oil, drink my smoothie and think about how I might be
