*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 [...]

It's in gratitude that I honor my friend and Modern Mamas Podcast cohost, Jess, for the naming of this sauce. It is, in fact, potentially as addictive as a drug, but without all the nasty shit that comes along with drug use. Actually, it's quite the opposite: life giving, nourishing, uplifting, and energizing (the kind [...]

super crispy potato bits

Since having a baby, I've consistently been looking for no fuss food shortcuts that DON'T sacrifice flavor or nutrition. Unfortunately, the easiest to grab, quickest to eat foods are usually pretty full of crap (read: freezer meals). Knowing what I do about nutrition and how what I eat directly impacts my little one through breastmilk, [...]

super easy squash and kale soup

I frequently discuss the importance of real/whole food as the source for all of the nutrients we need to heal, perform, and thrive. But one of the issues many people seem to face when it comes to getting all the needed nutrients is that it can be daunting to eat a giant bowl of greens or [...]

your shortcut to a serious superfood

*Scroll to the bottom for a crazy good deal! Yep, a shortcut... That's right; I said it. And this is coming from a girl who has never been an advocate for any sort of quick fix pill or supplement, and who has always said (and will keep on saying) that a real food approach is [...]

The reality (and one of the intentions) of our big move out of the Bay Area and to the Pacific Northwest is that we really need to be conscious of the money we spend. For this reason, among others, we are working to be homemakers in every aspect of life that we can. When I [...]

Keep reading, I'll wrap this all up with a GIVEAWAY! Last month, I had the pleasure of joining Rafe Kelly and a group of amazing people for Return to the Source, an adventure in the Pacific Northwest that had us sleeping under the stars, jumping off cliffs, climbing trees, and getting in touch with what it [...]

food is medicine

A little bit ago I was introduced to Tyler Anson from Everyday Warrior and was immediately inspired to put together this post and to help support the cause however I could. If you haven't heard about Everyday Warrior, I am glad you are here; please keep reading. The folks from Everyday Warrior believe in the warrior spirit. [...]
