I get asked all the time about Evie's first foods journey and what she eats now as a toddler (woah, when did that happen?). The reality is that she eats what WE eat, and it's been that way from the start. Doing more of a baby led weaning approach (our own version, because I am [...]

*old post, but updated recipe - it was fun reading this back from 3+ years ago, pre-babe, pre-huge life changes, but still pretty dang happy and enjoying the outdoors* What a Sunday we had yesterday! Nothing makes me happier than getting outside to play and explore in nature with my friends, family, and pups. And [...]

for the love of lasagna

This recipe has a significant amount of sentimental value to me. It's made up of 1 part inspirational blogger/farmer/lifestyle role model and 1 part best friend/kick ass/new mama role model.

A couple weeks back, I had a client of mine send me the link to THIS article titled Embracing Fat for a Healthy Heart Is a Notion Based on Flawed Science. The writer, Dean Ornish, MD, is also one of the docs behind Forks Over Knives, a film that sets out to prove that many of [...]

So, I've been drinking A LOT of bone broth lately, and it's delicious! More (or maybe equally) important, though, is the fact that bone broth is loaded with nutrients and has innumerable health benefits - from healthier, firmer skin to healthy bones (more on this later). Just to clarify, this is NOT the bone stock [...]

Hey guys! First off, I have to tell you how excited I am about the launch of the new Certified CrossFit Trainer or L-3 coming out of CrossFit HQ (my real job, which I absolutely love).

This is a yearly event I put on for all four NorCal locations that brings our community together for some friendly competition, bro bonding, and lots of fun. I left the gym with a [...]
