It’s been quiet on the blog front lately! Between launching a new website, hosting two retreats, guiding the fall group cleanses, completing my prenatal/postpartum yoga teacher training and studying for my upcoming birth doula training, I’ve been one busy (and blessed!) lady over here. It hasn’t left me much time for recipe testing and exploration in the kitchen. In fact, these days I’ve been coming back to the meals that are tried-and-true …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).
