gluten-free avocado pumpkin ‘panini’ with caramelized onions.

Did you ever read ‘There’s a Monster at the End of this Book’ when you were a kid? The charming paperback where Grover gets word that there’s a monster at the end of the book and tries desperately to prevent

blueberry almond avocado mousse.

We’re taking a little departure into sweet-land today! (WHAAAT?! I know. I was shocked, too.)  A few weeks back, a friend asked for some recommendations for easy breakfasts; conveniently, this was already on my mind as I am in constant

Some deliciously green not-pasta pasta for St. Patrick’s Day! Happy celebrating! A friend of mine is training for an endurance run right now, and has noticed – as many people do – that her weight is going up and up…

grown up not-too-fruity fruit salad.

Lately, I’ve been on a mission to create some multifunctional, any-time-of-day meals, particularly options that are easy to pack for work lunches or make for a good second breakfast. (Isn’t second breakfast so essential sometimes?! It’s important that it actually

raw carrot avocado ginger soup.

I’ve been noticing lately that similar themes have been popping up in my life, my sessions with clients and my conversations with strangers. Perhaps the universe has plans, or perhaps the energy of the whole world is converging in funny

making raw foods part of the way you live.

 I am a sucker for a good cookbook with gorgeous photography, simple inspiring dishes and lots of intriguing narrative backstory. Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat, the newly released {almost-but-not-entirely} raw cookbook from Gena Hamshaw

sweet corn + potato mexican summer salad.

Some of the best meals are the ones that just… happen. Unplanned, no recipe, improvisational fun time style. I’ve discovered that’s been a theme of late with our meals, thanks largely to the week-of surprise of our CSA box as

raw zucchguine with walnut-basil pesto.

Cook along with me! Let’s make this together on YouTube! I first discovered raw food in 2009 in the middle of my quest to be my healthiest (fittest) self. I loved how I felt when I ate it: truly nourished

I pride myself on being inventive in the kitchen. A little untraditional? Absolutely.  I am by no means a gourmet chef – and I think for that reason, I end up with a number of interesting/ surprisingly delightful healthy goodies

smorgasbord salad.

It’s that time of year: salads are coming out in full force, replacing many of the heavier dishes we’re used to in winter. I’ve had several conversations with people in the last few weeks where they mentioned they enjoy salads,
