5 Ingredient Healthy Kale and Quinoa Bowl

A 5 ingredient healthy kale and quinoa bowl that uses only five ingredients and takes less than 25 minutes to make. I’ve been working on republishing some of my favorite recipes that could use an update because let’s be real, my photography has changed just a little bit over the last few years. And it’s a fun way for me to re-test and improve existing recipes on my site. This is one of those recipes that often gets featured in quick-and-easy meal round-ups because, well, 5 ingredients.

Who doesn’t love a 5-ingredient meal? We’re all so strapped for time today given the busy lives we lead that it can help to have a few go-to recipes that take less than 30 minutes to make. This is one of those recipes. It’s a great recipe when you’re craving something light, yet flavorful. And although there’s not a whole lot to this recipe, it doesn’t compromise…

A refreshing and satisfying salad that only calls for a handful of ingredients, this 6 ingredient corn and tomato salad is the perfect side dish for summer.One of the positives of having post concussive syndrome is that I have had more space and time in my day to do things that fill me up and relax me, like visit our local farmer’s market.

Harissa Cauliflower Wings

Spicy, smoky and totally satisfying, these harissa cauliflower wings are about to blow your mind.I love me some good cauliflower wings. I also (now) love me some good chicken wings.

The last time I posted my Buffalo Cauliflower Wings recipe, I was a vegetarian. Now I no longer am a vegetarian (you can read about why here), but I still enjoy cauliflower wings. Battered roasted cauliflower doused in hot sauce – what’s not to love?!I’ve been thinking of this recipe for a while now since reading and writing about Middle Eastern cuisine being a top food trend for 2018. I realize we are now more than halfway through 2018 (although srsly when did that happen?!) but it’s never too late to capitalize on a food trend.One of the staples of Middle Eastern cuisine is harissa. Think sriracha but smokier and more robust flavor. Harissa is a hot chili pepper paste…

Heirloom Tomato Basil Galette

Easy, delicious and perfectly savory, this heirloom tomato basil galette with goat cheese is basically a fancier version of pizza. Pie for dinner? Need I say more?It’s been a little while since I created a new recipe for the blog. Most of you know that I’ve been recovering from post concussive syndrome and have had to take a little step back from my blog to rest and heal. It’s been really, really hard. I’ve missed my food styling and photography sessions. I’ve missed sharing recipes with you. Luckily I haven’t missed being in the kitchen though. With all of this free time on my hands, I’ve been cooking new recipes and baking lots of bread but I just haven’t had the energy to expose myself to the computer screen (which is a trigger for me) to get a new recipe up.

It means the world to me that ya’ll continue…

How to Combat Shame

We all experience shame, also known as guilt, humiliation, or embarrassment. Shame is universal – but we don’t have to surrender to it. We can fight it. Read on to learn how to combat shame.I’ve been feeling that it’s important to use this space to talk about the shit that no one talks about. The stuff that has such a big stigma attached to it that everyone feels they need to bottle it all up because we don’t think it’s “normal” or it doesn’t live up to these unrealistic expectations that we, or society, have set for ourselves about how we’re supposed to feel and act. Like when you have problems in your relationship with your significant other. Admitting to seeing a therapist.  Experiencing postpartum depression. Talking about body image issues. Having anxiety about tying the knot. Undergoing financial struggles. The types of things that when admitted, make us feel like a failure. The stuff NOBODY wants to talk about…

5 Simple Ways to Live Your Yoga

The physical practice of yoga is only one tiny piece of what yoga truly means. So, how do you go beyond the physical practice? Today, I’m sharing 5 simple ways to live your yoga. What does live your yoga mean, anyways? It’s certainly a subjective phrase and open to interpretation, but I believe it means taking everything you learn and embody on your mat and carrying that with you throughout your day-to-day. When we talk about yoga, usually images of people handstanding or contorting their bodies are conjured because that’s the image of yoga mainstream media has portrayed to us. But the physical practice of yoga, asana, is actually just one of eight limbs of what makes up yoga. Yoga is SO much more than downward dogs and sun salutations. Two of the limbs are the yamas and niyamas and I like to think of these as the book of commandments for…
