Chickpea, Carrot, Sweet Potato + Kale Stew with Brown Rice

Roasted Tomato + Collard Green Pasta

This is one of those recipes I have been making for a few years and just love. It is a go-to recipe we enjoy almost weekly. Graham likes to call these recipes, “Ella Classics” (HA). It is so fast to pull together and does not take much effort. You do need a few hours to […]

Roasted Romanesco & French Lentil Bowl

I’m not a huge quote person. Every now and then I do see a quote, and it really sticks with me. I was anticipating something today, in the middle of the afternoon of course… I couldn’t focus, and I kept looking at the clock. Oh well, I can’t start this because I only have two […]

Mindful Monday // Daring to Dare

I stumbled upon this quote, and it inspired me to kick off this new series of the blog, “Mindful Mondays”. Every Monday of the week I typically take time to write down one intention, quote, mantra or goal for myself that will help to keep me grounded and inspired for my week of growing to […]
