Recipes: Maca Maple Amaranth Porridge + Rosemary Red Juice

In September, I was given the task by my Ayurvedic practitioner to avoid cold, raw foods in my diet until spring. That meant no more giant green smoothies bowls for breakfast (gasp!). 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!

I first began my raw …

Recipes: Delicata Squash Sunshine Salad from Will Frolic for Food

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

Film: Vidya Seasonal Kitchen | Winter

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

Recipes: Rosemary Olive Oil Cake with Orange Chocolate Ganache

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, …

Recipes: Thanksgiving Guide 2014

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 …

Film: 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 …

Recipes: 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 …

Recipes: Quick Tahini Oat Breakfast Cookies

I never thought I would say this but…I’m tired of traveling. As a Sagittarius (double that is, sun + rising!), my world doesn’t feel quite right when I’m settled in one place for more than a few weeks. I thrive on change and the excitement of waking up in a new place surrounded by foreign sights  sounds and smells just waiting to be explored. And those synchronistic encounters with strangers …

Recipes: Moroccan Vegetable Tagine

Last week I was rummaging through a box of old keepsakes and came across a journal I kept while I was living in Paris in 2010.  While I was there, my mom and I took a mother-daughter trip to Morocco, an adventure of memories I still cherish dearly.  We started in Taghazout, a sleepy little fishing town turned surf mecca on the coast about an hour north of …
