Instant Pot Creamy Mac and Cheese

Instant Pot Creamy Mac and Cheese

Look, I know I’m usually all about healthy recipes with lots of veggies, but sometimes you just need comfort food. And when you want mac and cheese, you want something fast and easy that (hopefully) doesn’t come out of a blue box. (: This recipe […]

Cheese Tray with Blood Orange Mimosas

Cheese Tray with Blood Orange Mimosas

Our internet and cable have been out all day, so I’ve been running around town with husband getting some fun new groceries, and sitting outside on my patio in the sunshine catching up on phone calls. NO TIME TO BLOG? The horror. I’m using this tray […]

Abundance Bowl with Turmeric Ginger Cashew Cream

Abundance Bowl with Turmeric Ginger Cashew Cream

You guys, I have a serious question. How do you make friends when you’re an adult? I think it’s easiest when you’re in college. College is a built-in friend fest. You go to your neighbors’ house and watch Grey’s Anatomy and eat chocolate chip cookies every […]

Mom’s Chicken Rice Soup (Instant Pot)

Mom’s Chicken Rice Soup (Instant Pot)

I have been a yoga-goer for most of my adult life. I love the way it makes my muscles and joints and mind feel after a great session. I like sun salutations, restorative yoga, savasanas. I like the mudras, pranayamas, and even the pretty mats […]

Vegan Almond Chocolate Fudge

Vegan Almond Chocolate Fudge

The other night, husband and I went for a drive around our new town, looking for a non-chain coffee shop. Personally, I would have just Googled it or looked on Yelp, but he likes to discover things organically, which is always fun (if I’m forced […]

Rainbow Fried Rice

Rainbow Fried Rice

Things I learned yesterday: people love talking about self-care and they love seeing ugly and embarrassing photos of other people. Tazo chai concentrate actually isn’t that good and I need to learn how to make my own. There are little microanimals called tardigrades or water bears that are super […]

Turnip the Beet Juice

Turnip the Beet Juice

Okay, okay, so technically they’re radishes, not turnips, but CLOSE ENOUGH, right? So I have a question for you. Do you remember where you were when you drank your first smoothie or pressed juice? And do you have any special memories tied to smoothies and […]

Purple Sweet Potato Crust Quiche

Purple Sweet Potato Crust Quiche

Purple sweet potatoes are my favorite food right now, so you can imagine my excitement when our new Trader Joe’s had BAGS of organic ones! If you haven’t had them before, do yourself a favor and check your nearest health store, Whole Foods, or TJ’s and pick up […]
