Recipe Box: Taos Blue Corn Muffins

Taos has always held a fond place in my heart. There’s something so special about its many micro climates, of vast horizons over the sage spotted mesa, the white cotton candy-like clouds painting shadows and light across the expansive views, the cold mountain streams tracing pathways through the aspens. It takes my breath away every time.

My dear friend and I have been making annual trips to Taos for the last …

Recipe Box: Kabocha Squash & Red Lentil Soup

A few months ago, right around the time I was launching my new website and leading two big retreats in the span of 6 weeks, I wasn’t sleeping well and my health was suffering. I would wake up everyday, look in the mirror and verbally lament over how “drained, dried up, and lackluster” I felt. I would tell friends how wiped out I was, how I felt …

Recipe Box: Tea of the Feminine with Free + Native

One of the greatest parts of food blogging is being able to connect with incredible artisans, makers and culinary creators  from around the world.  And if there’s one thing I’ve seen in this community – there are some seriously talented women out there shaping the way we eat, think, and feel about food!

Recipe Box: Rainy Day Herbal Chai

I’m writing you with a mug of chai in hand, wrapped cozy in a blanket while a fierce rain falls outside. We’re going on day 4 of April showers here in the great plains of Oklahoma, and while the land dearly needs this water, my body is swimming in what we Ayurvedic yogis call Kapha energy (ie. lethargic, heavy, slow, sleepy).

Ayurveda, which translates to the science of life, is the …

Just this past winter, I became a declared soup addict. Each week, I’d make a big pot of some kind of root veggie, savory herb, winter greens + bean soup.  Like this one, oh and this one…which I ate in about 100 variations throughout the winter.  Okay, I …

Recipe Box: Creamy Saffron Tea Latte

As a yoga teacher and holistic health coach, my schedule varies each day as much as the weather does here in Oklahoma. And being a double Sagittarius with a vata constitution, structure and stability is something I have to work extra hard to create to keep my flighty tendencies in check (ie. I’d be floating off into the ether right back to Tulum if the wind blew me in that …

Video Series: Vidya Seasonal Kitchen | Fall

Each season, I share a peek inside my kitchen and what I’m cooking to create balanced health in the Vidya Seasonal Kitchen video series. Sometimes health means slowing down and enjoying the journey. For me, there’s nothing like a road trip and time spent in nature to reconnect with myself and with loved ones. This fall, my friends and I took to the open road and headed east towards Tahlequah, …

Recipe Box: Sprouted Mung Bean, Sage & Butternut Squash Soup

It’s officially soup season. Summer held on as long as it could here in Oklahoma (it was 90 degrees last weekend!), but this morning I turned the heater on for the first time since early spring.  It was one of those mornings where you just want to linger in bed as long as you can because it’s far too cozy under the covers and cold feet on …
