coco-butter tea… modern day take on a Tibetan tradition

By | January 19th, 2016|Health, Nutrition, Recipes, To Drink|

While I absolutely LOVE my locally roasted organic coffee, I also think that there is something to be said for keeping things varied, and for not loading the body with tons of caffeine every morning.

Cheers to a great 2015. Loads of change came my way (and by no happenstance also to Radical Roots). The blog got a whole new facelift. I moved to a whole new state.

an electrolyte elixir and the guile of Gatorade

By | April 28th, 2015|Autoimmune Paleo, CrossFit, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, To Drink|

As an active part of the CrossFit community and a life-long athlete of pretty much every team sport available to me as a kid, I have seen my fair share of sugary sports drinks, advertised, purchased, and handed out for their electrolytes and performance enhancement. The reality, though? It's all hogwash. Look no further than THIS [...]
