Inti Beach Club Playa del Carmen


If you’re in Playa del Carmen and looking for a beach club that’s not party central, Inti Beach Club is it. It’s a beach club with a laid back vibe. It’s on the smaller size with mellower techno music and great food. Don’t worry, there are cocktails too.

The bar…always important.

Umbrellas are available too.

The only downside is the beach right in front of the club looked a bit rocky, but plenty of people were in the water just to the left of us. Also, there was a shower, but it was in the back with the bathrooms.

Inti Beach Club is between 4th and 6th streets. It’s 500 pesos with food. I had salad, quinoa risotto with shrimp (one of these dishes would have been sufficient), a morning fruit beverage, and two cocktails. Cost $750. (usd $40). Not bad for all day at the beach.



Current Read-Dietland


This book turned out to be much more than I expected. Yes, it’s about the mental and physical, rollercoaster dieting that most women put themselves through. However, as the book progresses, it begins to go beyond dieting and moves more into “why are women obsessed with what is perceived as physical “perfection”. It’s a story of “Jennifer” revolting against sexism, the beauty industry and society’s view of women in general.

After reading this, I see that it’s been made into a tv series and is being compared to “Fight Club”. It also reminds me of “V is for Vendetta” as far as movies go. Regardless, it’s a great read especially now with the strength of women’s movements happening.

Tongue Scraping


I scrape my tongue every morning and can’t imagine not doing it now. During the night while we sleep, our bodies are still detoxing. That gunk on your tongue in the morning is bacteria, and that bacteria helps cause digestive issues and bad breath. If you’re thinking I brush my tongue with my toothbrush, it’s not the same. Trust.

Tongue scrapers are cheap. I think I paid $8 for mine. All you do is literally scrape your tongue with your U shaped scraper. I usually do it a 3-5 times every morning.

This is Becoming My Daily Lunch


Okay, so this pita/salad is sooo good and you can vary it in so many ways. I can’t get enough.

Here’s what I do. I like my pita/naan/etc. slightly crunchy, so I spread olive oil on it and put it on the stove to make it more of a cracker texture. I then put it on a plate and spread goat cheese on it.

Then I sauté whatever vegetables I decide to use. Today I used olive oil with garlic and onion. I added yellow and red bell pepper with tomato, salt and pepper. I put the veggies on top of the bread.

The last step is simply making a salad, and I took the easy route today. A premade mixed kale salad with a small amount of bottle dressing (just enough to coat the leaves). Put the salad on top and wa-la.
