The shoot itself turned out to be complete and utter magic, a gathering of some of my favorite friends and inspiring creatives coming …

Recipes: Autumn Kitchari + Cilantro Coconut Chutney

Twice a year, every spring and fall, I take a week or two to cleanse my body and prepare for a new season.  This spring, I did a 10-day raw juice and broth fast paired with some deep healing herbs.  When the weather is warm after the equinox, I like to do my longer juice fasts as a way of releasing stagnant energy, reconnecting with myself from …

Recipes: Raw Coconut Probiotic Yogurt

Today is the last day of summer.  I think we’re all lamenting how quickly it came and went this year.  While it was over 100 degrees just the other day, the leaves are already turning yellow and falling off the trees one by one.  It rained last night, bringing in a cool crisp breeze that is worthy of a big comfy sweater and an extra cup of tea …

Recipes: Chopped Summer Salad with Lemon Dill Vinaigrette

Somewhere in between traveling to Tulum for pure escapism and a trip to Alaska for a wedding and a workshop…summer happened.  My mind is still in May, yet the calendar says it’s…what! Mid-August?!

Perhaps it’s because I’m finally out of school and still adjusting to the different meaning summer has taken on now.  But I feel like I missed out on those long lazy days lying under the …

It looks incredible, but without onions or broth around, I opted to test out a …

Recipes: Grapefruit Lavender Juice

Two weeks ago I did a photoshoot with my talented friends, Greer Inez and Sara Kate.  We shot inside one of my favorite buildings, the historic Fred Jones building in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City.  It was built in 1916 as one of the original Ford factories where they assembled Model-T’s into the late ’20s.  The building itself is a dream, with 4 …

Recipes: Using Herbs & Citrus for Sugar-Free Juices

There’s something about drinking a green juice that makes my body vibrate on a higher level and the whole world seems to glow a little bit brighter after each sip.  Why is this?  It’s because when you drink a freshly-made, unpasteurized juice you’re infusing every cell of your body with high-alkaline, enzyme-rich, bio-available nutrients.

Maintaining a balanced, slightly alkaline pH is essential to good health.  Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables provide …

Recipes: Blueberry Almond Butter Smoothie

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 …
