It's been raining in NYC and my body feels exhausted (we recently got a Peloton and the addiction is real).

While I'm all about healthy eating and a balanced diet, I was listening to a podcast this week and a line really struck me- "the start of your health journey starts with addressing your emotions."Read More
It's be I need to eat the whole brownie pan weeks.
While nothing in particular happened, it just felt like a slow, muggy, sad week. But what I've learned that while eating a whole pan of brownies feels good in the moment, the next moment isn't quite so sweet.Read More
While I certainly don't make cakes often, I jump at the chance when I can.
There's just something about being covered in buttercream and delivering someone a delicious confection. While most of my treats err on the healthier side, a birthday treat is just that- a treat, so full dairy, sugar, and gluten are welcome.Read More
These cookies came and went just as fast as the middle of the week 4th of a July.
Last year I baked two pies, but with the recent heat wave in NYC, there was so just no way- so I went with an alternative, cookies inspired by some red, white, and blue (ok maybe not blue).
This week in my world of wellness, a big focus has been on mental health- which is something I feel personally strong about. With recent current events (RIP Anthony Bourdain) more and more companies have been wondering, what can they do?Read More
I've returned from Idaho with a bag of rhubarb. So naturally it's been going in everything- aka smoothies and these pie bars.

Ever since my eczema came back with a vengeance, I've been reading about ways to heal in a holistic approach.

As I'm sitting in the AC post sun-bathing in Charleston, I'm truly craving these meatballs after my mom made a killer pecan pesto. Though I'd make these tonight for dinner, my arms, back, and abs are so sore from the boxing class cookie monster and I did yesterday.Read More
As cookie monster has turned soul-cycle protein obsessed monster, I find these protein bites going faster and faster. These delicious bites are the perfect snack when hanger hits and have just enough sweet to satisfy your sweet tooth.Read More
Slow down, you're moving too fast..
On rainy days, there's something soothing about listening to Jack Johnson- and in particular this week this line resonates with me- aside from all the terrible rain we've been having in NYC.Read More
Ok, confession, I'm totally on the soul-cycle train- or bike I should say.
I always loved going to fitness classes (even though I hate what they do to my wallet), but spin has been the current obsession due to cookie-monster, who should better be re-named, protein-bite-only-rice-cakes-please monster's liking to the class.Read More

Notice that moment before you fall over the edge. By recognizing that, you can use the tools you have to recenter yourself and let all the light in your life shine and led the dark fade away.
It's definitely been a non-stop week. A week where I felt I was heading toward burn-out, which of course resulted in waking up with a cold/allergy reaction yesterday morning.Read More
It's finally starting to warm up in NYC and there's nothing more than enjoying a good cocktail and some popcorn in the sun.
Before having people over, I always like to make a nice big batch cocktail and this easy margarita sunrise is super easy to put together with only a few ingredients.Read More
These are definitely on repeat in my meal prep rotation.
