I kind of left you hanging a few posts back on what happened to my world after the flood. It’s been three months now since we were evacuated out of our home, and as of last week I have finally moved back into my “end of the road” apartment. Having a kitchen and bed of my own again has never felt better, and I’m getting my feet back on …Keep Reading

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 four …Keep Reading
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 …Keep Reading
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 …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).
Ayurveda, which translates to the science of life, is the …Keep Reading

As an entrepreneur, my schedule varies each day as much as the weather does here in Oklahoma. And with a strong 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 direction!). So I’ve made peace with early mornings …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
