COLLAGEN OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

COLLAGEN OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

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

SPINACH ARTICHOKE MEATBALLS

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.

LEMON CHIA AND RASPBERRY MUFFINS

LEMON CHIA AND RASPBERRY MUFFINS

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.

There's always something comforting about baking bread.

People say its always good to be "breaking bread" but I like to bake it and share. There's something about cooking food and sharing it with good company.

CHOCOLATE SWEET POTATO LOAF

CHOCOLATE SWEET POTATO LOAF

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.

WE'VE GOT THE BEET, MARGARITA

It's finally starting to feel like spring in New York- maybe?

When its warm out and sunny long after work gets out, instead of having a warm and cozy dinner, a fresh margarita and some guac always sounds right. I mean who doesn't love a margarita with guac?

May the space between where I AM and where I WANT TO BE inspire me.

No situation you are in is permanent-it's not the end all be all. Though we get wrapped up in the moment or thinking about what could be, we forget we have the power to change.

It ain't easy being green.

While this week at work I wrote about the contrary of how there are easy ways to go green (in reference to being eco-friendly at work and the office), but sometimes accepting your green-ness, or in this case, a golden-hue, can be hard.

THE PERSEPHONE

Anxiety is contagious, but so is calm

I've decided to start exploring meditation and mantras. While sometimes the day to day can be tough, I think it's important to focus on the aspects of your life that bring you the most joy. For me, its's spending time with pup, cookie, monster, and my kitchen.
