Danielle Lupo is an American model, Pre Med student, and working Certified Cardiographic Technician (CCT).

Working and studying in healthcare field for almost 10 years now, Danielle has acquired a great deal of experience, knowledge and skills.

She keeps herself pretty busy these days mostly working on the frontlines of the covid pandemic and online schooling, working towards a doctorate program.

Her time at home is pretty limited, so she tries to stick to the healthiest and easiest recipes, as possible. As a pescatarian herself, Danielle needed to get creative with her diet.

She found that lentils are a wonderful super food, providing such nourishment from vitamins to minerals, to being a great source of fiber, potassium and folic acid, all which are essentials for heart health!

Danielle promises you will be pleasantly surprised with this easy and delicious, hearty-heart healthy dish!

Here is Danielle's 3 step, 3 ingredient, 1 pot lentil soup recipe:

I make sure I have a box of chicken broth, you can even use vegetable broth, to cook the lentils in for extra nutrition and flavor, make sure you pay attention to the sodium level and choose a less sodium option to stay heart healthy...

One package of mirepoix, which is a chopped up mix of fresh carrots, onions and celery...

And of course a bag of lentils, usually a 16 oz bag...

First, you'll want to sauté the mirepoix in any cooking medium you choose,

I always cook with the always famous extra-virgin olive oil which is also heart healthy...

Then when you have sautéed your carrots onions and celery mix, you'll want to add your broth and lentils.

Bring everything to a boil and then lower the heat, cover and simmer for at least 45 minutes letting the lentils expand and soften, stir periodically and add about 1.5 to 2 cups of water if needed for more of a smooth and soup-like texture...

When the time has passed and you achieved the right consistency, (pictured in pot) you may take a taste and season accordingly if you like, (pepper, garlic powder, tumeric, etc...for this dish is very customizable)...

Serve and Enjoy!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
