Chic dinner: Spinach and Chard Tart

June 14, 2013

Every once in a while I’ll get really inspired to make a recipe from Martha Stewart Living or Food & Wine. I’ll admit to drooling over photos in both magazines but rarely taking the time to make them. Usually the multiple steps or my lackluster pantry stop me. But the June issue of MSL is […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

May 28, 2013

There is something about May that makes it hard to stay out of the kitchen. My CSA has started, providing more greens than I really know what to do with. And during pickup at one of our farmers markets, I couldn’t resist the sight of so many little red strawberries popping up. Four pints and […]

Dear future husband…

May 21, 2013

Dear future husband, There are a few things I think you should know about me. You should know that I don’t have a lot of free time and feel the most fulfilled when my weeks are full. I’m lucky to have multiple jobs that I love and challenge me in different ways. My career will […]

Conscious Cleansing

May 9, 2013

My two weeks on the Conscious Cleanse are over and I’ve reverted back to eating chocolate, eggs, sugar and coffee. While I never achieved that amazing, weightless feeling some cleansers describe, there are definitely some benefits to this cleanse and I noticed a few changes in my body. My biggest take away is how good […]

Abs not guaranteed

April 22, 2013

It’s day eight of my vegetable binge and probably due time to clue everyone in on all my instagraming. Holly introduced me to the conscious cleanse back in February and hooked me with one line: “I did notice my bloating go down significantly (like, really significantly) and saw abdominal muscles that I hadn’t seen since […]

Indulging in Crushes

March 28, 2013

Prepare for me to over share to a public audience. I have a crush. On a boy. Normally, this wouldn’t be a huge deal. I have a crush on the 18 year old cashier in Whole Foods because he remembers the last time I was in the store, can recognize when I just came from […]

Boho Cycle Studio

March 26, 2013

Time is not on my side right now. I had the best of intentions to post this awesome paleo zucchini bread recipe last week. But between working 13 days in a row, two a days, and attempting (read: failing) to maintain a social life, things are falling behind. The recipe will get posted as soon […]

Caribbean Sweet Potato Soup

March 12, 2013

I’m pretty sure my diet has primarily consisted of soup for the past 5 weeks. This little tidbit was brought to my attention at work when one of my co-workers mentioned that I’ve been making a lot of soup lately. Nothing like being called out by my team. This soup obsession is real and I […]

For the love of lemon

March 5, 2013

I seriously love lemon. Every day starts with hot lemon water. Lemon slices are always in my water bottle. Lemon bars, lemon muffins, lemon meringue pie, I’ll take it all. Minus that pesky wheat flour. I’m trying my best to adapt a lot of my favorite old recipes into paleo versions because then I can […]

Opal Yoga

February 22, 2013

Charlottesville, I have some big news if you haven’t yet heard. We FINALLY have a vinyasa studio in town. And it is awesome. Actually, awesome doesn’t even begin to describe it. Opal had a soft opening on February 14th and a whole lot of yogis spent Valentines day opening their hearts together. The studio is […]
