in my own words

After 11 years of writing a blog, sharing recipes—and my life—on social media, and sending three cookbooks out into the world, one of the most frequent questions I’m asked is, “How do you eat all this incredible food and still look good?” Well, first I think we should change that question to, “How do you eat all this incredible food and still feel good?” And second, it’s clear that most of my readers are trying to figure out how they can fill their lives with enjoyment and indulgence without feeling like they need to deprive themselves as punishment in exchange.

a week with gaby

Monday MONDAYS ARE FOR RECALIBRATING! To ensure I’m making choices in line with my weekly goals, I always make a plan for the day. That way I know I’ll be getting in lots of green veggies, putting plenty of colors of fruits and vegetables on my plate (which means more anti-aging, disease-fighting antioxidants), and rounding it out with healthy fats and whole grains for carb-loaded energy. Tuesday I LIKE TO GET MOVING EARLY IN THE WEEK! After dialing things back from the weekend on Monday, by Tuesday I’m feeling energized. It’s time to get active! If the weather allows, I get outside. I love to schedule a hike-meeting hybrid. Or head to the gym—or make your way to your home gym. Do what you can to set aside time to get your body…

goodbye, boring chicken

CHICKEN-COCONUT CURRY Dark meat has more vitamins and essential nutrients than its lighter counterparts, and even chicken skin is full of unsaturated fat (aka the good kind!).
