New and exciting things in my life:

This apron from Ikea. 5 dollars.


My very first Le Creuset. Ain’t she beautiful! It was a fabulous birthday gift from my in-laws.


A new Paleo cookbook, Well Fed and a recommended read, The Happiness Project.

I don’t post a whole lot of seafood recipes, but I’ve recently started making this stew and it’s pretty dang delicious. Coconut milk + Shrimp = An exotic and exciting soup! You can use all kinds of shellfish in here; mussels, clams, other kinds of fish…

  1. […] There’s really nothing quite so satisfying as a stew. Heck, even the name is satisfying to say: “stew.” Then you add “Caribbean Fish” on to that and get something really good going. […]

β˜€οΈSummer meets Fall πŸ‚ 
Banana Yam Smoothie is on the blog today! link in bio ✌🏻️ Today's bowl brought to you by #squarebar and #almondcreme from @thenewbarn πŸ’πŸ“πŸŒπŸ¦ #nationaldogday ?! That's everyday around here. We celebrate #tinyforpresident year round! ❀️🐢 Getting back to my mat. Words can't express how much I miss moving my body in a way that feels strong, flexible, and technically proficient. But I just need to remember that I am not my body. I am so much more than what I can do physically. Also, I just BIRTHED A HUMAN 6 weeks ago and for 9 months before that, my body underwent it's most radical change to date. Finding fitness in my current body is just as much about discovering what I can do now as it is rebuilding what I had before. There is no "getting your body back" because this body is fundamentally different. πŸ’ͺ🏼 Current thoughts: My poor T-spine is so tight from breastfeeding. Heart opening sequences are my best friend right now. #yogaglo #nurseryyoga #fitmom #6weekspostpartum
