So is anyone else as pumped to welcome Fall as I am?
I mean, I love Fall. The colors, the feel, the light, the food... the apple picking! Its my favorite time of year (minus December) and I wanted to share with you all a delicious recipe to celebrate my favorite season.
Usually fall and winter sweet treat recipes are geared more toward the sugar dense, refined food options like cinnamon buns, pumpkin spice lattes, and the sort. And just to clarify, I don't think there is anything wrong with enjoying these foods. Except, that when you eat too much of them you probably feel icky, heavy, and your hormones are quickly knocked out of whack with all those refined carbs + sugar. And I'm all about enjoying food AND feeling good. Enter, pumpkin spice bliss balls. Read More
So here's the thing. I started writing this month's wellness roundup, and while I thought of some nice ideas to share with you, it felt more like I was scraping for things to share. I was finding myself wanting to follow through with the monthly roundup just for the sake of following through. Not because I genuinely felt excited or inspired. Not because I authentically felt in sync with the information. Not because I knew you would love or be motivated by my words or the links. I felt myself pushing through, just for the sake of doing what was expected. Read More

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. Not only can a sauce be healing, but for me it is what I rely on to keep my taste buds excited when I opt for my go-to staples, such as rice bowls and the standard chicken, veggie, + starch meal. And when you can heighten the enjoyment of a dish, you typically become sated with less. When you enjoy each bite more, you learn to stop and enjoy the present moment, chew well, and become nourished on a whole new level. Read More

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. It is fun, it warms my heart, and when it's over I'm ready to welcome the next year and start fresh with new intentions and energy. Read More
