The day we had a power cut.

So a few weeks ago, all of a sudden, in the middle of the day, a super hot and humid day might I add, everything stopped. No lights, AC, computers, and the internet -shut down. Apparently, there was a fire close by, which caused our life to rewind to the ’50s in a split second. […]

“Women despise frugal men”-is that so?

So,  I read an article, written by a psychology professor (no less) that claims women loath frugal men, and list them as non- attractive  partners.  Being a proud frugal +a true believer in seperate accounts as a base line for equality and feminism, I was surprised.   To be absolutely honest- the first thing a skeptic […]

My 7th veganniversary: am I laying on a bed of roses??

People make life-changing decisions all the time. I’ve read “inspirational quotes” that are adamant that “the hardest part concerning these decisions is getting to the point of making them”-as in being aware of the fact that change is needed and what form that change will take.  Well. I can tell you that in my experience, […]

What’s the deal with chin masks???

Lately, wherever I go ( admittedly- just a few places, introvert, told you), I see this widely spread phenomenon: people thinking it is ok to wear their masks on their chins, instead of, well, you probably know by now the proper way to wear a mask, in order to try and minimize the risk of […]

Revisiting Pollyanna: a test case in positive psychology.

So, the gyms have opened up here, and I got back to swimming. Swimming is most definitely one of my favorite ways of exercising, because: #1. it is a good workout- incorporates lung work, arms, back muscles, leg work ( I do breaststroke. not ashamed. I am aware of the fact that it makes me […]

Pre-workout snacks debate-seriously??

So, recently, since enhancing my workout routine, I changed my eating habits. Whereas before, I worked out having absolutely nothing to eat before, that is nothing for the 14-15 hours before training (intermittent fasting thing) except for my 1 cup of black coffee-no cream or sugar added- now I started eating a slice of whole […]

Now’s the time to appreciate leftovers!

I actually believe it is always a good time to appreciate leftovers, but even if you are not as strict , you probably got the message from the past 3 months.. Learning to use what you have lying around is an essential skill for times when supermarkets are raided, stores are barely open and I […]

A tale of chia crackers and blogging etiquette.

So, last week, I stumbled upon a food+exercise blog and decided I try it out. I started following and tried out one of the recipes. It was a basic recipe for a basic staple, the reason I tried it, although I was familiar with the basic recipe, was the fact that it was the first […]

The lamest frugal advice that can save you money!

My closest friend is a retired lawyer like me.we used to work at the same place for 13 years, then I moved away-but we kept our relationship through thick, and thin.  I am telling you this, not because I think this is a valuable piece of information for you, (though- who knows, right?) but because […]
