My Month of Goop: Julie and Gwyneth Day 8
Hi, I’m back. I took a little bit of a break from Goop cooking over the weekend because, come on, it’s the weekend. I don’t cook on Saturdays and Sundays. This week, I’m following Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Family Friendly” meal plan in the back of her book, It’s All Good. Here are a few things I... Read more »

Game of Thrones, Walk of Punishment

Game of Thrones, Walk of Punishment
This episode of Game of Thrones, Walk of Punishment, was yet another compilation of vignettes instead of a story with an actual arc. We checked in on Catelyn and Robb; Arya, Gendry, the Hound, and Hot Pie; Dany, Jon, Sam, Tyrion…phew! (And, oh yeah, Stannis. Whatever.) (And Theon. There was so much packed into this... Read more »

My Month of Goop: Julie and Gwyneth Day 2
This day didn’t go quite as planned, Goop-wise. As I mentioned, I planned on following the “Detox Week” menu plan in Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good cookbook, but I found myself “not liking” some of the recipes from the first day. So mixed it up a bit. What? It’s my blog. Plus, I followed a... Read more »

My Month of Goop: Julie and Gwyneth Day 1

My Month of Goop: Julie and Gwyneth Day 1
I learned a lot of things during my first day following the “Detox Week” meal plan in Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good book.  Just because something is made entirely from fruits and vegetables doesn’t mean it’s going to be low in Weight Watchers Points Plus Values.
