Coffee, Almond and Coconut Chocolate Bark

My friend Angie Starz and I did this Savor the Moment event. It was a meditation experience in which we paired wines and chocolates together and had each participant really experience the various components. This coffee bark was an interesting creation I made because it was the one dish I almost didn’t try. Coffee makes…


Superfood Banana Split

I love this place called Infiniteus Rocks and Juice in Wicker Park in Chicago. They have the best juice and a sweet rock shop in the back. They also make pretty wicked snacks. They make this banana split dish with superfoods. After having it, I went home in an attempt to make my own. I’ve…


Imperfect Produce

Did you know every year, 6 billion pounds of food goes to waste? That is insane to me. Imperfect Produce is trying to find a way to fix this. The produce is delivered straight to your door for 30-50 percent less than grocery stores. They only source foods that are considered “ugly” and normally would…


Pink Lemons

The best part about Imperfect Produce is that you can customize your box. Add what you want, take out what you don’t. Once I saw these wild pink lemons with the yellow and green striped rinds, I had to add them. Only 0.5 percent of the lemons grown in the U.S. are Pinks. One percent are…


Almond Joy Energy Balls

A little coconut, chocolate and almonds go a long way. Back at it again with the energy balls. Energy balls are part of my meal prep routine each week. They totally help with that 3pm energy boost. The adaptogens add a nice stress relief and the Sex Dust has a chocolate taste, which makes for a…


Beet Hummus

This majestic magenta color makes me swoon. There is something about beet hummus that makes me feel mesmerized. Look at the deep pink and purple hues. I’ve been trying out a bunch of hummus variations and this is definitely one of my faves. The beets add a wonderful sweetness to the hummus. I sprinkled some Beauty Dust…


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….


Collagen Peptides: What are the benefits?

I looked down at my nails and they were definitely longer than ever. Stronger too. My hair is silky smooth and longer than it’s ever been. I’d like to thank collagen for this. You might have heard of the brand Vital Proteins. They make a bunch of products but their collagen peptides are probably their top rated…


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…
