One of the coolest things about food blogging is all the incredible artisans, makers and culinary creators I’ve been able to connect with from around the world. And if there’s one thing I’ve seen in this community – there’s 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 …Keep Reading

I’m writing you from Tulum, Mexico right now with sand in my toes and salt in my hair, currently sipping on a Mayan chai and a big chayote green juice while kirtan plays in the background of the jungle meets ocean sounds. I’m one happy girl right now! Tulum has long been my soul spot, you know that place in the world where your heart softens and opens up a …Keep Reading
In September, I was given the task by my Ayurvedic practitioner to avoid cold, raw foods in my diet until spring. That meant no more giant green smoothies bowls for breakfast (gasp!). As a former raw food chef, I would have protested this request and refused the notion that the very thing I believed to be most nourishing could actually be creating imbalance in my body!
I first began my raw …Keep Reading

I can hardly believe a full year has gone by already and the Vidya Seasonal Kitchen project is coming to a conclusion with this winter installment. I created this video series as a way to explore the deeper connection between the food we eat and the way we align with the seasons. What it revealed to me was that each season has its own energy, from the Keep Reading
With this cake I’m celebrating my 26th birthday! I can hardly believe a whole quarter of a century has passed already, wasn’t I just blowing out the candles to a white chocolate persimmon cake? With my birthday so close to the new year, this has always been a time of introspection, reflection …Keep Reading
Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday of mine for many reasons….spending hours in the kitchen with no apologies and nowhere else to be, roasted root veggies, friends around the table, roasted root veggies, post-meal lounging, did I mention root vegetables yet? This year, I’ve created a few new recipes to share (like the pomegranate, persimmon and pumpkin kale salad above!) and curated a guide of my favorite holiday-inspired dishes from a …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
It’s officially soup season. Summer held on as long as it could here in Oklahoma (it was 90 degrees last weekend!), but this morning I turned the heater on for the first time since early spring. It was one of those mornings where you just want to linger in bed as long as you can because it’s far too cozy under the covers and cold feet on …Keep Reading
