The Clean Slate Day 7

Day 7 was a work day. So I was up in beautiful Los Angeles, cooking all morning. Unfortunately, (like I mentioned last post) I had not gotten a good night sleep, I was battling a headache, and feeling quite nauseous. So my meals were mostly an attempt to calm my stomach and keep me awake….

The Clean Slate Day 2

  Day 2 was a recovery day. I started out the day with some breakfast and a walk around Dana Point Harbor, followed by Yoga in the Park. It was a beautiful sunny day so I was happy to spend some time outdoors. The rest of the day was a smörgåsboard of errands, always SUPER…

The Clean Slate Day 1

As I recap Day 1 of The Clean Slate I would like to make something known: My butt hurts. So good (bad). Thanks to yesterday’s kettlebell workout by Neghar. That stuff is no joke. I can definitely appreciate the importance of mixing up your workout “routine” with new and interesting methods and movements. I do…

What I Ate Wednesday

It’s exactly as it sounds. A day of my food. SUUUPER excting. I have a hard time believing that people want to know stuff like this, but when I see other bloggers with posts like this, I am strangely drawn to them. I like checking out what other people eat on any given day. It…

Time for Juice

After a lovely morning of yoga at the park and smoothies with new friends, I think I’ve decided to get back on the juicing wagon. Well, I never really fell off. I feel like sometimes you just go through seasons. Food seasons. I remember my ‘lemon’ season and my ‘coconut’ season… The great annual ‘fig’…

What’s on My Plate

This post won’t really include any new or original recipes. I haven’t been messing around in the kitchen lately. Just trying to keep it simple and fresh. Speaking of “Keepin it Fresh”, check out this awesome cooler bag I received as a gift from a client… I love my job! So in lieu of new…

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie

I usually go to yoga in the morning. Sometimes later in the morning, like 10 or 11 am. Which presents me with a problem. You never really want to eat before yoga. When you’re hanging upside down, the last thing you want is to feel your breakfast rising into your throat or your stomach cramping because…

Dairy-Free Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Hey Friends! Here’s a recap of my super chill Valentine’s Day. I did some yoga at my new studio, Yoga Works Pasadena. Check them out! After some hard work in my stretchy pants, my beloved and I headed downtown to a Los Angeles favorite, Urth Caffe. Here’s a great example of why Urth Caffe rocks my…

Romesco Sauce

Today I re-emerged into my local Crossfit gym after a 5 month absence. Was it hard? Yes and No. I thought I would be a total spaz under the barbell but it turns out that muscle memory is a real thing. And I still have a bit of strength, which is encouraging. I mean, I…

Marinated Chicken and Artichoke Salad

Hey ya’ll! I’m just sitting here, eating this salad and getting stoked for my nightly yoga practice. Tonight’s class is with the lovely Jana. Go check out any of her classes here in Orange County. It’s rare that I come across AWESOME yoga teachers. Jana definitely qualifies as one. She has a very easy-going but confident…
