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.

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.

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 …

Recipes: Snap Pea, Parsley & Dill Soup

With this hot summer sun, I’ve been craving a cold soup for weeks now, but haven’t felt inspired to test out any new recipes.  Then I came across this recipe on Sarah Britton’s blog, My New Roots, for a chilled parsley and green pea soup.  Her recipe was a cooked variation served cold. It looks incredible, but without onions or broth around, I opted to test …
