I haven’t been posting food pics lately because I’ve been focused on really getting back into shape. It truly is a lifestyle change. I still eat…pretty much whatever I want to eat. This isn’t hard because I like good food. I like whole, unprocessed food. I’m still working on portion sizes but I’ve found that if I drink the amount of water I’m supposed to drink a day I have an easier time controlling the overeating. I do eat pork and beef (in moderation) and I haven’t given up fried fish on Fridays during lent (yet). +
It’s no secret that Wiz is one of my favorites. He is super cool, always smells herby, and probably runs one of the tightest ships with his crew (he’s always on time…most of the time he’s EARLY for interviews). He has a new song “We Dem Boyz” and he’s got a label situation with artists Ty Dolla $ign and Juicy J which he stopped by Arsenio Hall to discuss. He performed and sat down for a chat and he even did a cooking segment with the late night vet. Check out the hilarious segment and his new song below.

Elton John’s classic album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road turns 40 this year and to commemorate the event several artists have lent their talents to some remakes of some of the classics. My absolute fav new male voice in music right now, Miguel, tackles “Bennie and The Jets”. This is easily one of Elton’s most popular songs. It’s been sampled and snippets of it appear in so many songs from artists like Mary J. Blige and Frank Ocean. I’m telling my age… this album was one of those my father must have loved because I remember dancing to it. It was in heavy rotation when I was a baby. Check out Miguel’s rendition and pick up the reissue/remastered version of the classic album featuring Emili Sande’, Fall Out Boy, and others.
SXSW went down over the last week in Austin, Texas. It always seems like a blast although I kinda wish I had experienced it before it became such a huge entity. I’ve been catching highlights of performances all week via the internet. Everyone from Jay and ‘Ye, Gaga, and Rozay graced stages throughout the nearly week of back to back shows. One of my all time faves, Texas native Erykah Badu, rocked the stage at the Fader Fort to close out the festival. Check out highlights from the show below. +
I was on tv today (Big ups to Julie Tristan at Show Me St. Louis on News Channel 5). Whippin’ up another recipe. This one you can add to your Super Bowl party menu for the ones looking for a tasty low fat/non beef chili option. +
