When it comes to developing your healthy lifestyle, don't expect to make a complete 180 overnight. Instead, focus your efforts on one habit at a time to create lasting change and see real long-term results.
I Myself Have Seen It somehow manages to capture many aspects of life in a small space, a feat accomplished by Kiki Smith's obsession with mirroring the everyday things around here—people, animals, art history and, most importantly, that je n'ai sais quoi that makes the ordinary as off-putting as it is familiar.
Once you hit a certain level of strength, it can seem like basic exercises like crunches and push-ups are below you.
But no matter how jacked you are, you can use bodyweight exercises to challenge your body in new ways, and even increase muscle strength and endurance. A good bodyweight workout routine is a very time- and cost-effective way to build a strong, aesthetic physique. [ghostwriting]
The strudel tasted alone isn’t too exciting — edible, yes, but nothing to return for. With the gelato, however, the whole dessert becomes much more enticing. Bursting with ripe figgy flavor, it’s downright juicy with pieces of whole fruit stealing the show.

These restaurants aren't skimping on the goods, either, and a few have planned different specials every month to accommodate dietary restrictions (or for those who just don't want to eat grilled beef heart). Here are a few bites to look forward to.
Society pushes self-sufficiency without recognizing that independence is an impossible ideal. The logistics just don’t work out. Most of us live in cities or small towns, where we are clearly interconnected. Yet people are still pushed to live separately, travel separately, eat separately, and even heal separately. Reaching for this unattainable goal of total independence harms all of us – and most impacts disabled folks.
This Gâteau Marjolaine has three layers of mousse separated by wafer-thin almond meringue. Each layer of mousse is a distinct flavor: hazelnut, praline, and coffee. Then the whole affair is topped with thick, rich chocolate ganache. As delicious as it is, this classic French dessert wouldn't be quite as good without Dark Chocolate Sorbet by its side, served in a small tuile bowl, which is satisfying to crush apart with the tip of the spoon.
When a burger is served on a fried bun, there are usually two glazed doughnuts involved. Legend has it that crazy creation is called the Luther Burger, in honor of Luther Vandross. But after decades as a cult classic, this sickeningly sweet burger has been overshadowed by another fried bun. And this one's even more American: Deep-fried Twinkies. Philadelphia burger joint PYT just released this bad boy last month.
Duck is known for its gamey flavor, but that doesn't translate at all to the ice cream. Instead, it has an incredibly rich, buttery flavor with just a hint of savory... something. It adds soft nuttiness that's like the savory goat milk flavor in cajeta, but the similar note in Chef Country Veldaor's Duck Fat Ice Cream is much, much milder.
When our experiences and identities are erased from history, from our lineages, from our traditional systems of community, we can only see ourselves through the negative lenses that remain. We exist in colonized frameworks where we’re a burden, a problem, a mistake, even if there was once a community role or place of belonging for us.
