Creamy Millet Porridge

Growing up, I was never too crazy about oatmeal and porridge. Perhaps because it was always made quite bland and ended up being weirdly thick and slimy. Only recently has my love for breakfast propelled me to experiment with all different kinds of recipes. This millet porridge is a wonderful alternative that has more of a texture than rolled oats. This recipe was created after having leftover millet from dinner one night. I saw a […]

¬†You know when you get so excited about a recipe, you feel like jumping for joy (or is that just me)? Like when you plan your breakfast out the night before with every single detail you can almost already taste it? This is one of those recipes I am SO excited about sharing.

A 5-Step Facial You Can Do At Home

My daily skincare routine is quite simple; I wash my face with water and pat dry. That’s it. Sometimes I’ll spritz it with rose water. Other times I’ll wash it with honey if I feel it needs a little cleaning. When I’m really feeling fancy, bentonite clay is my go-to for it’s ability to pull out impurities so effectively. But overall, my skin feels best when I pay the least attention to it. I try […]

Can Eggs Replace Shampoo?

Yes, depending on your hair type and what you are used to. However, to say it works for everyone is not accurate. Everyone’s hair is different and responds differently to different washing techniques. The question at hand is how often you would wash your hair with egg depending on your hair type. Everyone, regardless of their hair type, should not use this egg wash more than once a week. Your hair will become dry and […]

Homemade Almond Milk

**Update as of 8/31/2022: I no longer recommend drinking nut milks, and instead fully endorse raw milk. I believe animal milks are highly nutritious and have been part of our diets forever. If you insist on drinking nut milks for whatever reason, at the very least, make it yourself! Why is it that we would rather get in our car, drive to the store, and buy pre-packaged and pre-made foods instead of making them at […]

Colorado Energy and A.W.E

We planned this trip to Colorado one week in advance. We reserved for the A.W.E. seminar, booked our flights, and were ready to experience the full energy this weekend had to offer. Well, life never turns out how you expect it to, and this weekend was no different. There was a lot we learned, plenty of beautiful and wild things we saw, but nothing compared to the time spent in that room with Donny Epstein, […]

Balancing Chamomile and Lavender Toner

Though skin health comes from within, and what you eat and drink will ultimately show on your skin, one can still benefit from a good skin care routine. Facial toner specifically can be a crucial addition. It’s the pH balancing step after washing and before moisturizing. I never used to use toners, but after I started, I was hooked. My first love was rose water, and still is a reliable floral spritz. I carry rose […]

Paleo Apple Almond Bread

This has been my favorite bread recipe yet; I think I can safely say I have mastered it. The basic ingredients stay the same while I play with spices and various wet ingredients. In the summer use shredded zucchini. In the fall, use pumpkin, sweet potato, or squash. Any other time you can use homemade applesauce (which is so far my favorite addition), or banana. Add your choice of nuts and seeds, dried fruit, or […]
