Turkey Burgers

We made these turkey burgers during our Nourish in Nature retreat in Arizona. They were such a hit and most of the participants favorite dish. Easy dinners are so important in my routine because I get home from work so late. It’s nice to have something you can whip up just with the strike of…

Drinking Cacao

I have been doing some research into drinking cacao and came across this brand called CaCoCo. Their product is outstanding but their business model is also incredible. They really care about the environment and that makes me grin ear to ear. Their packaging is recyclable and the bag the cacao is in is compostable. They…

Blue Majik Chamomile Face Mask

We were in Scottsdale for our retreat and it started to rain. Yes, it was raining in Arizona. Rachel and I had planned for a hike and some good outdoor adventure and we were faced with quite the debacle. We had it on the agenda to talk about self care but it turned into a…

Spiced Nuts

Nuts are such a simple thing to snack on throughout the week. It’s one of my go-to snacks like hummus or energy balls. They’re kind of boring by themselves so I try to switch up the flavor when I season them up. You can put whatever spice or herb you want on the nut mixture….

Seared Scallops and Ground Cherries on Quinoa

I just discovered ground cherries a couple years ago and they are one of the most exquisite fruits these taste buds have tossed around. Imagine a tropical tomato as you take a mouthwatering bite. The first time I had a ground cherry was from Jerry at Froggy Meadow Farms. He likes to sell really weird…

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Roasted Vegetable Salad

Roasting vegetables is such a great way to bring out the flavors and vibrant colors of a food. You can roast vegetables for however long it takes for them to be done. If you are roasting them at a lower temperature for a longer period of time (300℉ for about an hour), this will create…

Rosemary Lemon Dressing

Rosemary is probably my favorite herb. It’s useful in reducing the severity of asthma attacks because of its anti-inflammatory compounds. According to the World’s Healthiest Foods, “rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and improving digestion.” It can also help with improving concentration because rosemary helps increase blood flow…

Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

Meal prepping is something that I try to do pretty much weekly. It’s super helpful for my busy schedule and makes eating healthy way more attainable. I usually make a bunch of quinoa or some other grain and eat it in salads, macro bowls, or in this case, as breakfast cereal. Quinoa is filled with…
