I can hardly believe a full year has gone by already and the Vidya Seasonal Kitchen project is coming to a conclusion with this winter installment. I created this video series as a way to explore the deeper connection between the food we eat and the way we align with the seasons. What it revealed to me was that each season has its own energy, from the Keep Reading

With this cake I’m celebrating my 26th birthday! I can hardly believe a whole quarter of a century has passed already, wasn’t I just blowing out the candles to a white chocolate persimmon cake? With my birthday so close to the new year, this has always been a time of introspection, reflection …Keep Reading
Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday of mine for many reasons….spending hours in the kitchen with no apologies and nowhere else to be, roasted root veggies, friends around the table, roasted root veggies, post-meal lounging, did I mention root vegetables yet? This year, I’ve created a few new recipes to share (like the pomegranate, persimmon and pumpkin kale salad above!) and curated a guide of my favorite holiday-inspired dishes from a …Keep Reading
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 …Keep Reading
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 …Keep Reading

And those synchronistic encounters with strangers …Keep Reading

The local tribes of the area – Haida, Tlingit & Tsimshian – had their own special ways of preparing seaweed into useful tools and edible delicacies. Think pickled bull kelp and beach asparagus, dried bladderwrack , sea lettuce salads, herring …Keep Reading
It’s “Juice Week” at William-Sonoma, and I was asked to share my favorite seasonal recipe using a savory spice or tangy ingredient that will undoubtedly kick your juiced drink up a notch. As you know, I’m an avid year-round juicer with a love for using unique herbs and spices to make juicing a little more interesting. If any season calls for a good juice, it’s summer…and particularly late …Keep Reading
This week you’ll find me over on Pure Green Magazine talking about what seasonal alignment through Ayurveda means to me and sharing a recipe for my favorite cooling summer ice cream. I’ve had the honor of being a community leader alongside plant food bloggers, Lindsey Love and Laura Wright, for the #PGMinseason project. So far, we’re two weeks into the four week …Keep Reading
