Apple Pie Crockpot Oatmeal

I was teaching a yoga class the other day and my friend Rachel and her boyfriend came in. Jim whispered to Rachel, “is that the oatmeal girl?” Rachel had been making him the Blueberry Muffin Crockpot Oatmeal I put up a while ago and he absolutely fell in love. I talked to them a little…

Chocolate Chip Matcha Energy Balls

I was rolling up some matcha energy balls in my mom’s kitchen before having dinner with my parents and grandparents the other night. I had to beg my mom to be my taste tester. She even said, “why would anyone want those?” I’m not really sure why she was so nervous. After taking a bite…

Teriyaki Salmon Macro Bowl

If you haven’t caught on yet, I pretty much will eat anything out of a bowl. My little sister, Grace, makes these awesome ceramic bowls and I just can’t get enough of them. The day she gets her own place and takes them back is going to really end my cooking career. I guess you…

I stumbled upon the most darling traveling merchant. Dani rides this bike setting up her Joyride Organics shop all around the city! She offers free samples of mushroom tea, sells beautiful soaps, Vital Proteins collagen peptides, and more. Follow her on Twitter to find out where she is next! One of my health practitioners mentioned…

Butternut squash Kale mac and cheese

Butternut Squash and Kale Mac and “Cheese”

This time of year makes you want to get super hygee. If you’re unfamiliar with this word, think of warm wool socks by a wood fire, curled up with a cup of hot tea. It’s a Danish word that is sweeping its way across the United States. There are foods that have this same cozy…
