How does a boss babe meal plan? I don’t know about you, but it’s near impossible for me to cook every night. And believe me, I’ve tried my gosh darn hardest. Alas, it was not realistic with my full time job, exercise regime, blogging, other chores and social life. So I figured out a meal planning strategy that worked best for our schedule.

I was scrolling through Facebook recently and came across this old album called “Gagalicious: The Poker Face Night” — a drag show that I performed at in Zurich, Switzerland 9 years ago. No, I was not in drag, but I did backup dance for the drag queen Stella Divine thanks to my good friend Marie-Louise Lo.
