cooking

I hate cooking. Last night, my husband informed me that I must learn to cook. Terror filled my eyes. I’ve been evading this for years and luckily, I have always been fed great meals made for me by amazing cooks. I’ve never had to feed myself and if I did, it was for a short…

As spring gives way to summer, refreshing cocktail recipes are in high demand. Behold, the New Orleans Pimm’s Cup, a magical summer cocktail. The famous Napoleon House slightly modified the original English classic and we’ve added a few fun twists of our own. It’s mild enough to have a few, but strong enough that you…

I finally got back on a normal workout routine a few weeks ago. A month of traveling through India left me weak and 10 pounds lighter (which was fine by me). Being the endorphin junky that I am, I was desperate to swing a kettlebell and find a reasonably paved road to run on.

At PartyGirlFit we are all about eating and drinking WHATEVER you want…as long as it makes you happy and as long as you’ve earned it through a great workout. I stand by this statement and I truly live my life this way. I don’t try to curb my cravings, I indulge in them!

PartyGirlFit A fitness & social community movement that encourages you to eat chocolate and drink wine. Just earn it. New Orleans, meet PartyGirlFit. New Orleans Entrepreneur Week (NOEW) kicks off this week and I thought I’d introduce myself. I’m Rupa, co-founder and CEO of PartyGirlFit. I love working out, but I’m also in love with…

michelada

I love a cold beer on a hot day. I also love a bloody mary on a cold day (especially to nurse a hangover). An amazing Mexican cocktail called the Michelada is the fusion of those two wonderful libations. Imagine a crisp Mexican beer with high citrusy notes of fresh lime, grounded by savory foundations…

Mac n cheese 2

Pasta smothered in a cheese blend with a very distinctive twist….chilli’s and ginger.  Sounds a bit strange, right? It is. But it works, and it works really well (I’m drooling just thinking about it).  This exotic chilli ginger macaroni and cheese originated with my mother-in-law. Let’s just start with the facts, there is absolutely nothing…

Yet another recipe from the resident cook and food nut at PartyGirlFit. These eggs are not your normal eggs.  They are incredible. These are “Gourmet scrambled eggs.” I used to make scrambled eggs like most people do. Beat some eggs in a bowl, add some salt and pepper, get a pan hot with some butter,…

My husband was born in Chicago and this recipe comes straight from his first hand experience eating and making REAL deep dish pizza.  2 pieces will fill you up with pure gooey, oozy, warm pizza joy. There is no counting calories here, girls. This beast of a meal is meant to be enjoyed with a…

egg yolk

We’ve all heard egg yolks are bad for you.  I’m here to say you have been told wrong.  Yes – you have been bamboozled, hoodwinked and taken for a ride by the anti egg yolk marketing machine.  Even worse is that restaurants and grocers actually charge MORE for just egg whites versus a whole egg.  What kinda…

Its-My-Cheat-Meal

Cheat days are stupid. Have you ever followed the exercise and eat rabbit food for 6 days a week and then have a cheat day routine? I have. I followed that routine religiously for years. What a load of crap. Most of us are not fitness models, bodybuilders or extreme athletes. We are lovely people who have lives filled with family…

falafel

Here’s a recipe for a protein packed salad that’s completely vegetarian, easy to make and great for a post workout meal!

Fact: your environment can dictate what and how much you eat. According to droves of weight loss research and the book Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life, you are more likely to eat certain foods based on the ease of their preparation and consumption and the physical design of the space. No brainer right?…

Hot chicken wings are addictive. Ok they’re not the best things on earth for you, but they are damn delicious and pack in protein.  A couple of ways I try to health-ify this dish is to make them really spicy (stimulates metabolism), bake them vs. fry (no oil, less fat) and eat them early in…

Here’s to starting New Year’s resolutions right. You can make this simple cocktail as your go-to for the evening. It’s low in calories, full of anti-oxidants and looks, feels and tastes very festive. Have more than one, it’s New Year’s Eve! It reminiscent of the spiked high school punch bowl at prom, but a tad…

Thank god we are out of NYC during the winter and in sunny Singapore.  The feeling of having a sunny cocktail on a beautiful December afternoon is well, priceless.  This cocktail recipe is super simple, quick and delicious.  It’s low in calories, fruity and fun, so you can definitely have more than 1!

Halloween is over which means that holiday season is around the corner.  Cocktail parties, fancy dinners and all kinds of social obligations are going to fill up your calendar.  This time of year can be daunting for our waistlines, but my advice is to find the fun in all of it and come up with…

apple-1

I tend to like greasy food, but my body doesn’t like me afterwards.  I’m a firm believer that you should always eat the foods that you love and for me that’s pizza.  I won’t substitute anything for authentic NYC style pizza.  I don’t care if your gluten free version is healthier, I want the real…

Mojito1

Alas, summer is coming to end, but we still have some hot days ahead.  Mojitos are one of my favorite adult beverages, transporting me back to summer and making me feel like I’m having a Havana night.  Unfortunately, they are full of sugar and terrible for your waistline, but the sugar is what makes them…

I love carbs.  I always have.  I’m in a serious relationship with them.  But since I hit my 30s, I’ve found it harder and harder to work-off the bagels and pasta.  I did some research on when I should really be indulging in carbs and I want to impart what I found.  You can have…
