Blueberry Muffin Cashew Butter

Hey friends! The recipes have been few and far between because I’ve been busy mom-ing and settling into the new year. I’ve been spending a lot of time getting some foodie inspiration and hoping to share lots of new recipes in 2017! Truth be told, I hate to focus on my goals during January. I need…

Eden’s Sap Granola

Happy New Year friends! Not only have we just cruised through the Christmas and New Year’s season, but my husband and I also celebrated our wedding anniversary on the 30th. I LOVE the new year and the fresh perspective and potential that it brings. With so many milestones at the same time, it’s also nice to look back…

The Clean Slate Day 30!

The Slate is Clean! Day 30 has come and gone, at Disneyland no less. Sure, there was a bit of dark chocolate and some celebratory red wine, but all in all, the healthiest trip to an amusement park I’ve ever witnessed. Yet again, the folks at The Blue Bayou were incredibly accommodating with my gluten-free…

The Clean Slate Day 29 and Paleo Trail Mix

Disneyland! Happiest Place on Earth right? Well, I found this inspiring little meme from Neghar this morning, and I love it. Happiness comes from within. External circumstances (even Disneyland) cannot blot out a mournful, spiteful, bitter, or ungrateful heart. Take care of your soul everyday. You don’t have to go to Disneyland to be happy….

The Clean Plate Day 28

I managed to fit in some yoga AND a nice walk on beautiful day 28. I felt very accomplished. My activity level has been all over the place due to my schedule and I HATE THAT. I love consistency in my active life (well… in everything actually. I can be a bit of a control…

The Clean Slate Day 27

Day 27 was a lazy kind of day. No training, no real schedule or agenda. The truth is, the Super bowl was really happening in my kitchen as I was testing out some delicious bites for an event at Thrive this month! So excited to launch Paleo Night! If you’re local to Orange County, stay…

The Clean Slate Day 26 and a Pumpkin Banana Smoothie

Home Stretch! 4 more days! Honestly, the food part isn’t hard at all. Sure, there have been some sugar slips here and there, but all in all it has been a breeze. The HARDEST thing is keeping away from my phone in the car and meditating! I seriously need to renew my resolve to meditate…

The Clean Slate Day 16

I’m now in the second half of my Clean Slate journey. Today figured I would recap the details of the challenge for those who are reading this for the first time, and as a little encouragement for me to keep going! My 3 main goals at the beginning of these 30 days: To stop texting…

The Clean Slate Day 13 with Vanilla Fig Bars

Sorry to all my subscriber friends who received an early draft of this post… oops! Here’s the real deal! It’s a SHORT one with a recipe… Over the weekend I had to create a snack bar for a client and they turned out amazing! SO DELISH that I am sharing them with you today. What…

The Clean Slate Day 11

Another gorgeous day in Southern California. Day 11 was not a completely “clean” slate day. I had a bit of chocolate (which has sugar… a no-no), but I made a choice to indulge a bit and that’s fine by me. I made some of paleOMG’s delicious coconut cups out of her cookbook (and on her…
