Two exciting things!

1. I bought a new awesome shirt from Steve’s Original.


2. I’ve launched my new cooking classes in South Orange County!

Rocking the new shirt

So keep checking the Services page for the classes. They are super affordable and a lot of fun!

One of my favorite things in San Clemente is our neighborhood Mexican market. They have amazing prices on avocados, tomatillos, and other produce. They also have fresh chicharrones, rendered lard for sale, and sweet potato flour!

Another great offering at the market is some exotic fruit puree. I recently bought some guava and strawberry puree with Agua Frescas in mind. This is a super easy beverage for entertaining, for relaxing, even just replacing your everyday water with lemon. You could also jazz it up with some alcohol if you wish.

Guava Sugar-Free Agua Fresca

1/4 c. guava puree (or any other fruit)
10 oz. sparkling mineral water
wedge of lime or lemon

  1. If your puree is frozen, defrost it. If you are making your own, freeze your fruit (strawberries, mango, kiwi, etc…) and blend it into a puree.
  2. Pour it into a glass and whisk in the puree.
  3. Add ice and garnish FTW!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
