What are some staples that, when you apply them to dishes, elevates the flavor and nutrient profile tenfold? For me its a little thing called sauce.
With the right ingredients, a sauce can help balance your blood sugar and lend vitamins, minerals, and even have anti-inflammatory effects on your bod.

I must say I love a project. And the New Year is such a perfect time to make intentions for growth, putting new plans in action, and personal projects. I love how we close each year with celebration: the holidays, family and friends gathering together, reflection, and clicking glasses and forks together with some pretty tasty foods.

There can be something quite magical in the ritual, the taste, the smell, and the experience in a deliciously brewed cup of coffee. But, having a cup everyday, especially if its more than one time a day, is not not the best way to support your body in feeling and working at its best and most efficient.
