React, Regroup, Reconnect

I tend to be a reactionary and emotional person. I think it’s probably safe to say we all are; that is our nature as human beings. Sometimes this is a very helpful tactic in times of conflict. We can react very quickly which drives our actions and this can be useful. But I think far too often we react before really taking the time to think rationally, and this can get us into some trouble.

On Wearing A Mask and Giving Our Power Away

I came across a post about why it is important to wear masks. Why wouldn’t you want to wear a mask if you know it will save other people? I couldn’t help myself to respond because, well, there is just too much to say in response to this. Unfortunately, my response was triggered and it didn’t come off as I wanted it to in the moment. So I decided to write it as best I […]

The Magic of Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice has arrived, and with it comes the darkest night of the year. Something magical happens when there is less light to guide us; we usher in our own guidance to lead the way. The solstice marks the transition back to light, but also in a sense is only the beginning of Winter. This time of year is a time of introspection. It is one of intuition and discovering our selves. Like a […]

Surrender

Sometimes in order to receive, we must let go. In order to allow things to unfold naturally, we must stop resisting the tide. To surrender to life’s mysteries means to see all of the events happening in our lives, good and bad, and appreciate what they have to offer. We must first understand that to let go of our perceived control makes space for healing to occur. I’ve learned a lot over the passed few […]

Living the Simple Life

I’m going to be real with you. I haven’t been publishing blog posts or on social media so much, because well it has felt better not to. Some days I’d have the inspiration to write an article, but then be too meticulous about how it reads and scrap it. Other days I’d take a picture of a pretty plate of food with the intention of publishing it somewhere, but then get caught up in the […]

Thai Cauliflower Fried Rice

If you haven’t tried making cauliflower fried rice yet, now is the time. This is one of those recipes that has gotten a lot of light since the coming of Paleo, whole-30, or any other grain-free diets. I just love it because instead of rice being the primary player in the dish, you have a vegetable instead! And if you know me, you know adding more veggies is what I’m all about. Using cauliflower doesn’t […]

Roasted Almond Butter

Almond butter is one of those things that I must always have around. I use it in so many recipes; for cooking breads or date balls, topping on pancakes, or just for snacking on. I love the stuff, and since I’ve had access to ordering almonds in bulk, here, I really have no excuse. This is one of those staple recipes that is so easy to make. The only ingredient you need is almonds; that’s […]

Intermittent Fasting and Listening to Your Body

Have you heard about intermittent fasting? Though it may sound like some prolonged food restriction, it is truly much simpler. The amount of time you “fast” depends on your body and gender and just how you feel, but is generally somewhere between 12 and 18 hours over the course of a day. The easiest way to practice this is over night. We all do this unconsciously already: eat dinner, go to bed, and not eat […]

My End of the Year Release and Inspired Creativity

As a woman, we get the pleasure of being able to release all that has built up within us (emotionally and physically) every single month. Our bodies shed the blood that was preparing for another human being. And simultaneously we often feel a build up of emotions right around that time. Many people mock women about their emotional turbulence, but we musn’t get discouraged. This is our power. If throughout a cycle it has been […]

Paleo Sweet Potato Pancakes

As a kid I remember sitting at the kitchen counter while Grandmama cooked crepes for us. This was a special occasion, but one I cherished. Though I was never one to obsess over sweet things, this breakfast was special because the thin crepe made this usual cakey dish quite elegant. I remember serving the crepe with sliced apple, a combination she recommended, wrapping it up and eating like a burrito with the occasional dip in […]
