This year, I decided to launch a new series on the Vidya blog to highlight some of the kitchen goddesses out there who …Keep Reading

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).

As a former raw food chef, I would have protested this request and refused the notion that the very thing I believed to be most nourishing could actually be creating imbalance in my body!

Easter may be over, but I have a smoothie recipe that will brighten up even the rainiest of April days! With the warmer weather here, I’m finally craving morning smoothies and enjoying big raw salads for lunch again – oh how I missed this! My local CSA is back up and running in full swing, and I’ve been getting the most incredible weekly boxes of fresh produce. With …Keep Reading
I’ll be the first to tell you, that I’m not a huge fan of beet juice on its own. However, this smoothie is a game changer for me. It is absolutely Divine with a capital D. It’s light and easy to digest, and fuels me up without weighing me down between yoga and climbing. I’ve been excited to share this recipe for a few months, and now that it’s finally warmer …Keep Reading
