This smoothie is simple and sweet, a nice change from my go-to Morning Milkshake. The almond butter and Vitamineral Green powder give it a little protein kick, while the hemp and flax provide essential Omega’s. I’ve been adding my supplements to my smoothies lately, which always includes my probiotics, flax oil, greens powders, and a natural Vitamin C …Keep Reading

This morning we woke up with heavy hearts and thunderstorms still pounding outside our window. Oklahoma’s largest recorded tornado swept through Moore yesterday, a town just 15 minutes south of us. I had listened to the tornado sirens sound all day while watching the hail pound the just-bloomed trees. It was nerve-wracking and eerie, listening but not knowing where it would hit or if it would at all. I’ve been …Keep Reading
If you’ve been following my Facebook page, you’re probably beginning to think I subsist solely off of juices and smoothies! I have a fresh juice and a serious green smoothie (by serious, I mean 32oz mason jar filled to the top) everyday to nourish my body with high-alkaline, bio-available, easily digestible nutrients. But a girls gotta eat, and as my good friend Kathleen loves to proudly announce, “I’m an EATER!”. …Keep Reading
The Muladhara Chakra (mula=root, adhara=foundation, support) is located at the base of the spine at the sacral plexus. It connects us with the earth and provides feelings of groundedness. It governs survival, our right to exist, and basic trust in ourselves and others. When this chakra is clear and energy flows through it freely, we feel secure and confident that we can easily fulfill our needs. We cultivate a …Keep Reading
I adore baked goods. Absolutely adore them. But the truth is, I don’t really get to eat them since I avoid gluten, dairy, and most processed gluten-free alternatives. I’ve also learned the hard way that just because things are raw and vegan, doesn’t necessarily mean they should be eaten all the time. I got caught in the trap of thinking anything ‘raw’ was automatically amazing for you. Many times, raw …Keep Reading
In the winter, my body craves cooked foods – as it should! From an Ayurvedic perspective, we should eat warming, grounding foods in the wintertime to keep us well…warm and grounded. So instead of a raw broccoli and chickpea salad, I decided to toast the chickpeas in the skillet with caramelized onions, lightly steamed broccoli and lacinato kale.
If you’re sprouting the chickpeas, make sure to …Keep Reading
Sunchokes, also known as Jerusalem artichokes, are hearty winter root vegetables with a jicama-like texture and a nutty, sweet flavor. I first discovered sunchokes at the winter farmers market when I was living in DC, and since then this dish has become my winter go-to on a chilly day. When it’s cold cold cooold outside, eating warming foods to help balance vata is important – especially for vata …Keep Reading
I recently read an article listing the top wellness trends of 2013. Guess what the first two were?
Number 1: The Rise of the $20 Gourmet Juice.
Number 2: Turmeric is the New Kale.
While I do hope that juice stays affordable for everyone, I’m loving that plants are getting more recognition as we continue to move towards a more health-conscious country! In the last year, I upgraded most of my recipes from …Keep Reading
Flavors inspired by my last trip to India. Masala simply means a mix of spices. Masala Chai are the deliciously sweet and warming spices of fresh ginger, green cardamom, cinnamon, clove, and sometimes black pepper, all simmered in raw milk and steeped with black tea. Chai wallahs (tea stands) are an intrinsic part of Indian culture, many times you are paying less for tea and more the performance. …Keep Reading
