I've had many "lightbulb" moments throughout my life, but it took personal experiences to bridge the gaps that weren't being bridged.Read More
There are days when cashew cream slathered on bread sounds mighty delicious and then there are days (more often than not) where something fresh and green makes my body swoon.
In this recipe, I’m bringing together a refreshing, nutritious, DEFREAKNLIOUS green salad and a gluten-free, NON-GMO, low calorie, Sunfood Coconut Wrap that'll leave you swooning for days.
Aside from the surprising amount of flavor this wrap packs, it’s perfectly filling–leaving you pleasantly satisfied versus couch ridden.
A leisurely drive into the mountains of West Virginia gave us an opportunity to enjoy the changing landscape between the two states.
We arrived just in time for dinner. I swear I didn’t plan that.
These tasty bites are a perfect snack, pick me up, pre or post-workout booster and a sweet tooth craver nixer. Fancy terminology right there.
Lately, I’ve been adding more and more superfoods to my pantry instead of just running out and grabbing quick snacks all over town. I’m doing this for cost efficiency and for quality control.Read More
If you are looking for a great caffeine substitute that still packs an energy punch, try adding some maca. Maca comes in a powder form and has a malty flavor. I use it in smoothies, desserts and hot drinks like the one above.Read More
There is nothing wrong with one on one time with yourself. I think its mandatory! We are always rushing dinners after long days, or running around maintaining friendships, while trying to fit in appointments and meetings…no wonder we are always drained and pooped!Read More
I may have grown up in a house where my dad was a chef (definitely not a vegan one) and I do feel very naive for saying this, but I didn’t realize how much fun and engaging a cooking class could be! It’s only taken me…oh…almost 30 years!Read More
If you think one person can’t make a difference, there is at least one man who can single-handedly prove you wrong.
Jadev Payeng “The Forest Man”, has planted 1,360 acres (larger than Central Park) since 1970 and the momentum he has constructed hasn’t stopped since then. The forest that he has built, including live animals such as; tigers, elephants, deer’s and rhinos, is on a sandbar in the middle of the world’s largest river located in North East India.
This extraordinary piece of land could be gone in the next 15-20 years due to soil erosion. With this, Jadev still continues to exert the effort to make the “shift”. He believes he can save his land and I believe, with effort, we can work to save ours.
He is but one man and the world is a big place, but with more individuals like this, we can create the “shift” right along with him.
The beauty this man possesses brought tears to my eyes.
Watch the video and be as inspired as I was.
