White Bean and Arugula Soup

white bean and arugula Soup is definitely one of the hardest things for me to make. I don’t know what it is, but unless it is a blended, creamy soup, it just doesn’t turn out edible.

But every time I find a soup I love, I think the same thing “I want to make this at home!“. So I try, and usually laugh at how off it is. The best soups are recipes that I follow, or by pure accident. There are quote a few that have been dumped out

Recently we were eating at a new local restaurant and I tried the white bean and kale soup. It was broth based and contained white beans, arugula, and tomatoes. It was even better than I thought it would be and seemed easy enough to recreate at home.  Continue reading

A New Way to Make Coffee, plus a Yoga + Tea Giveaway!

ghee and coconut coffee

Lately I’ve been switching up my routine a bit, or rather, trying to create a routine. I tend to procrastinate, end up working late into the day, and then stress about not getting as much accomplished as I thought I would. I am also not the best organizer and do better when someone else has organized my day. The big things will get done (maybe right at the last minute), but the little things that I really want to do, the creative or fun things, end up being pushed aside. Continue reading

Detox 101: Your 21 Day Guide to Getting Healthy for Good has Arrived!

Detox 101 Pic StackThe past few weeks have been a bit surreal. If you’ve been following on Facebook or Instagram, you probably know why. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have quite a few projects lined up that I am excited to share with you, and you’ll start to see some of these trickling out soon. These all hit and came together around the same time that one very big project finally  was released – my first book, Detox 101.

I received my personal copies before the release and was able to share a few sneak peeks at the content, as well as finally see it in print and share it with my classes. It was crazy and a little strange to see myself and my words on the pages. I’ve been staring at these words and pictures for over a year, so to me, it was “just me”. Continue reading

Brunch Recipe: Brussels and Eggs

brunch eggsMost Sundays we have brunch of some kind.Sometimes it is intentional, sometimes we just end up realizing we forgot to buy groceries, and other times we get distracted with coffee and being lazy. We often make our own brunch, since there haven’t been many places near us to choose from, unless we drove down into Charleston. But with the drive and the wait times, it easily turns brunch into a late lunch. Continue reading

Sweet and Spicy Beet and Arugula Salad

beet arugula goat cheeseEven though I love making new recipes and meals at home, I absolutely love to go out to eat. Each weekend, we eat out for at least two meals – usually a lunch and a dinner, and maybe another lunch, depending on if we are out and about or not. And even though we eat out, we still remain pretty healthy. For one, when you have certain dietary restrictions (no meat, no dairy, no gluten, etc) it makes your choices much smaller, and usually healthier. It also helps when you live in a place with a multitude of farm-to-table restaurants that use locally sourced and organic produce (and meat if you eat it).  Continue reading
