Recipe: Mujaderrah

Ready for your new healthy, frugal, simple, and delicious 5-ingredient lunch? Let's take a culinary journey to the Far East.

Mujaderrah is a simple Indian dish of spiced whole grain brown rice and lentils, served with sauteed onions and sour cream, that's high in fiber, heart-healthy, and suitable for a wide range of diets, including a vegetarian (and even vegan, if you substitute vegan sour cream) diet.

It's really simple, basic, and budget-friendly, but absolutely delicious. Embrace the simpler, but exotic, side of life with a Mujaderrah lunch!

The Best Acai Bowls in Hawaii!

Summer, and summer break for those on an academic calendar, is rapidly approaching. It's the perfect time for a cyber getaway - to Hawaii! I had the most amazing vacation of my life this past fall. I went to Hawaii (a split stay between Oahu and Kauai) for ten days with my (then) boyfriend!

It was expensive, but so worth it. Hawaii is the frickin' BEST.

Hawaii is stunning, fun, peaceful, relaxing, multicultural, rich in biodiversity, and also incredibly delicious! I highly recommend saving up and going some day, even as a once in a lifetime trip (it's a perfect, and popular, honeymoon spot).

Anyway, if you do manage to go, here's a ranked list of the best acai bowls in Oahu, Hawaii!

Hey, researching this was tough work. But someone has to do it ;)

Safe City Living for the Single Girl!

I moved to New York City last summer after graduating from Harvard and I've loved every minute. I've wanted to live in New York City since I was in middle school, so it's exciting that I finally get to live here every day!

From last summer in NYC - I can't believe it's already almost that time again!
My mom, however, does worry sometimes about me living all by myself in the big city. She gets that I'm a grown up, but everyone needs a social network for security! Friends are a great way to get that social network, but what about the safety network? When you live at home or near family, your parents check up on you more often. When you live on your own, you have to figure out a way to stay safe easily, so you can do what you want without worry!
