Black Bean Tacos with Goji Berry Salsa

Black beans are such an easy thing to have on hand so I use them in multiple recipes. They can be made into black bean veggie burgers, hummus, or these delicious tacos. Goji berry powder is a totally different ball game. It has a fruity taste and it’s packed with so many benefits. Goji berries…

Activated Charcoal and Aloe Vera Face Mask

This is a perfect mask for the summer. The aloe vera is great if you’ve been soaking in the sun. The activated charcoal acts as a natural detoxifier.

Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken

I was living at my parents for about a month while my house had asbestos contamination. This put quite the damper on my cooking since I was commuting to and from the city to the burbs. My yoga classes would start around 6am and end around 8pm most days. I cherished every moment that gave…
