Recipes: Spring Gnocchi with Beet Green Pesto

These days, I’ve been trying to take life a little bit slower. To enjoy the pause between moments, to slow down to reconnect.  In fact, this is a theme I’ve been consciously exploring this year. When I was first starting my business and even before that, back to when I was working my first real salaried job out of college, I had this intense drive to work as hard as …

Recipes: Chia Berry Breakfast Parfait

I’ve become totally hooked on rock climbing.  For me, climbing is yoga.  It has this beautiful way of pulling me 100% into the present moment. It thrusts me out of my head and into the movement, my breath, and my surroundings.  And isn’t that union with stillness the true practice of yoga? In an unexpected way, climbing has deepened my connection with my personal yoga practice on and off the …

How often do we get caught up in feeling unloved, in disliking ourselves for who we truly are because we get lost in expectations of what we hope others should feel for us? What if this year we ditched those expectations. What if we focused our energy towards loving ourselves fully, loving others unconditionally, and becoming …

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: Cashew-Free Raw Vegan German Chocolate Cake

At 11pm on Tuesday night, I crawled into bed with a handful of cookbooks and asked my boyfriend, “If you could have any one dessert for your birthday what would it be?”

We flipped through the cookbooks of NYC’s beloved vegan bakery Babycakes and found some close winners. But Matthew Kenney & Meredith Baird’s Everyday Raw Desserts took the cake, literally.  Our eyes settled on their recipe …

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 …

I’m celebrating this week.  Celebrating life, blissful connections, new opportunities, spending time in nature, being with close friends and beloved family, sweet weddings, golden orange and pink sunsets on the beach, crisp clean saltwater-scented air, long meals and laughter in the kitchen…and much, much more.

This cake is certainly one for celebrations, and one to be celebrated! I originally made it for Kathleen’s birthday after we got back …
