Black Bean Veggie Burgers

I’ve made this black bean burger a few times and it seems like every single time I’ve experimented, it’s fallen apart. It was on the Energy Mastery Palm Springs retreat menu. I got so frustrated when half the patties stayed together and the other half were breaking right down the middle. I experimented with adding…

Very Berry Imlak’esh Superfood Bowl

If you haven’t caught on by now, I make about everything in these bowls my sister throws. It all started with the good ol’ smoothie bowls. Toss a little fruit and some nut milk into a blender, top with some superfoods. Bada bing, bada boom. This company called Imlak’esh Organics has the most rad superfoods….


Energy Mastery Energy Balls

We went on this retreat to Palm Springs and there was no food processor in the house. I was the chef for the weekend. Luckily there was a potato masher so I get a little bicep work in. That thing came in handy for the black bean burgers, hummus, and beet hummus. Our plan for…

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I’ve been called “The Oatmeal Girl” lately for my creations with rolled and steel cut oats. Sometimes I throw them in a crock pot, others I make right then and there. Overnight oats are simple too because you can just put them in a jar in the refrigerator and they’re ready the next day. Energy…


Black Bean, Coconut Soup

There is this place I go to right by one of my yoga studios called the Chicago Health Foods Store. They rotate their soups but they often have this black bean soup. It is so creamy and dreamy. I asked soup master, Matt what was in the black bean soup. He said he makes it…


Sweet Potato, Bacon, Avocado Bites

We had a Super Bowl party at my friend Tyler’s the other day. When he told me that everyone should get creative with an app, I knew I’d be set with whatever I decided to concoct. I’ve been on an avocado kick lately and with sweet potatoes in season, I thought I’d combine the two…
