A Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with A Transformational Twist {Recipe}

Lately, I‘ve been thinking about the power of rituals.  A ritual is different than a routine.  Routines can become, well, a little too routine—where you simply go through the motions as if you’re on autopilot. Rituals, on the other hand, are more like a pause in your day. They have intention and meaning behind them […]

The Missing Piece of The Nutrition Puzzle

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get the results you’ve always gotten. If you want to get out of the eternal spin cycle when it comes to your challenges with eating, if you want to feel a sense of freedom and victory, then it’s time for a new strategy. ~Marc David, The Institute for […]

Are You Waiting for the Perfect Moment?

There is never a perfect moment.  There will always be something potentially standing in your way, if you let it.

When Life Throws You Curve Balls

I can’t believe I’m writing this news. A couple of months ago, I shared my wonderful dog Willow’s story with you – how her cancer taught me incredible lessons on life, love, and letting go. She’s still with us, showing us her unconditional love…and I’m still learning. But this isn’t about my girl. It’s about […]

When Chocolate Chip Cookies Are More Nourishing Than Kale

My kitchen is the place to be in our house. At a typical meal, there are several burners lit, cutting boards spread out across the counters, and the sound of veggies being sliced and diced. My younger son, Daniel, finds his way to the bar stool to sit and assume his role as the official […]

You Can Change Your Mind

I love my time that I spend on my 6’ x 2’ yoga mat.  It’s a space I look forward to being in as often as my schedule permits. I go to the type of classes that are jam packed with wall-to-wall people. You’re only a few inches from your neighbor. It’s hot (around 100 […]
