I’m sitting in my home studio… the windows are open, bees wax burning, sun is shining and Marvyn our cat is belly up in the sunlight. Today, is perfect. Our refrigerator is full of delicious food, our home is some what clean and my schedule is starting to finally feel good. These small moments in […]

Soba noodle bowl with spinach, carrots, sweet peas and ginger peanut sauce (gluten-free + vegan)

This amazingly filling lunch is so easy to pull together and is incredibly healthful. This bowl of health is naturally gluten-free and vegan and mostly raw.

Spring quinoa salad with peas, radishes, watercress and lemon

Days are getting longer and the sun seems to be shinning brighter than ever. Grocery stores are filled with gorgeous produce ready to be made into bright, textured and energetic salads. Spring for me is a great time to reconnect with more mindful cooking, trying new things, buying more produce, and not falling into just […]

Mango, Goji, Avocado, Kale & Quinoa Salad

I love when Ataulfo mangoes are in season. It is my favorite variety of mango, sweeter than most, no stringy stuff and a thin pit which makes it easier to harvest more juicy mango for this salad. When this mango hits the stores, like Whole Foods you will see it out front and center, mango […]

Cashew Hemp Milk

I have been filling my days with teaching a lot of yoga, here and there and every where I can. Something they do not tell you when you do yoga teacher training is that you will be running around town getting from class to class. One of the most important things you need to practice […]

Fennel, red pepper & dijon crab cakes

Our local fishmonger, Coastal Seafoods is a place we are grateful for here in Minneapolis. Being pescatarian, or people that on occasion indulge in seafood and fresh water fish like to know where it is coming from and have a very fresh and honest supplier. Not living in a place where crab specifically comes from, […]

Vegan Gnocchi with Oyster Mushrooms & Sweet Peas

It has been a cold dark winter here in Minnesota. Surprisingly we have been frequently going out to eat, which I love, but has made me miss working with my hands in the kitchen. Being lactose intolerant it has been extremely hard to find wholesome healthy comfort food while dining out. Occasionally, I regret to […]

Vegan Cremini Mushroom, Beet & Arugula Pizza

As a kid growing up, I hated pizza. I felt like I was the only kid on the planet that hated pizza, and oh boy did I get looked at weird at pizza parties in school. I disliked the sugary tomato sauce and greasy rubbery mozzarella fast pizza shops would cover their pies in. It […]
