To love and to be loved


Cupid is surely making his way whether we like it or not. Valentine's Day is all about romance and love, and of course, spending it with your significant other if you have one.

Planning something on this day of love can really be a hassle—especially in college since everyone is either in love or single as heck. And it gets even harder if your frat star of a boyfriend isn't the most enthusiastic about Valentine's Day. Luckily, if you're trying to plan the best guy approved Valentine's Day date, these 14 college guys confessed what they'd actually want to do on Valentine's Day:

1. Dinner and a movie

"I love movies and food. So there's nothing better than a good movie and a nice dinner."

2. Home cooked and a city tour

"I don't have a girlfriend, but I've had this dream Valentine's Day date planned for the special girl that will someday come into my life. First, I invite her over and I cook dinner for us and then a tour of the city."

3. Cuddled up

"A romantic evening by a fireplace, cuddled up in pajamas and watching a movie with candles lit."

4. Spooky season?

"Watching a scary movie so she can cuddle up next to me."

5. The bedroom

"Just a whole night in the bedroom."

6. Get drunk

"Honestly, a night in getting drunk together would be perfect."

7. All about her

"I don't want to sound corny, but Valentine's Day is all about the girl so wherever she wants to go for dinner and then a stop at her favorite store for something nice."

8. Go with the flow

"I don't have an ideal celebration idea, I just kind of go with whatever she picks."

9. Go to the bar

"Going bar hopping is and will forever be my idea date for anything."

10. Scavenger hunt

"I've always had an idea to make a scavenger hunt for my girl and then have me naked waiting for her at the end. It doesn't get better than that."

11. A sports game

"To go watch my favorite NBA team play."

12. A couple's massage

"A long day at a massage place with my date would be the best thing ever."

13. Double date

"My best buddy and I have always wanted to go on a double date on Valentine's Day."

14. Netflix

And there you have it, ladies. If you know you're going to be doing something special with someone on February 14, make sure you plan ahead for any of these that might come your way.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"
