A few weeks ago, we met my cousin and his family for brunch at this adorable kiddo friendly farm to table restaurant in Los Altos. In fact, the woman who started the restaurant is Mary from Five Mary's Farm. If you haven't checked her and her amazing family out, you should. She's one of my [...]

If having a newborn has taught me anything (it's taught me a lot actually), it's that having easy to grab, nutrient and energy dense, balanced foods on hand is IMPERATIVE.

Considering I'm just 8(ish) weeks out from being a mom (woah), I'm starting to wrap my mind around the craziness that will ensure, especially in the first few weeks of breastfeeding, changing diapers, holding baby girl, and likely sleeping very little. Somewhere in there, it will be imperative that I eat. You know, food is fuel [...]

This year is off to a crazy, albeit awesome, start, and I am taking my clean eating with me. Busy days are no excuse to let food quality go to the wayside. In fact, the busier life gets, the more important it is to eat nutrient dense foods because they keep energy levels high, mood [...]

I am big believer in listening to cravings. And I knew that I needed some extra protein to refuel and to prep for the busy day ahead. After a quick perusal of [...]
