No Way It’s Vegan Mac n Cheese

Tangy watermelon salad (1)

A few weeks ago I had to put myself in the mindset of a child and think about the things they would truly enjoy for my first ever kids cooking class. And to be honest, that was SUCH a challenge! Kids are picky! How the hell was I going to get the pickiest of eaters to eat healthfully AND enjoy veggies with so much flavor?!

I thought…hmm…kids seem to really enjoy mac n cheese. So, cleverly thought I could hide some veggies (ahem butternut squash) in the cheese sauce while also giving kids the option to add in their fave veggies. You’d be surprised, some actually chose to add broccoli to their mac n cheese and those who didn’t still got a dose of veg with the butternut squash hiding in plain sight in the cheese sauce.

For those of you who want a super cheesy but still nourishing baked mac, I’ve provided an additional version for your pleasure 😉 A little something something for all mac n cheese lovers, vegan or not.

Oh Snap, I’m on a Podcast

Hello beautiful friends!

I am back from a much needed (and well-deserved) hiatus from social media, work and more. I don’t think we realize how much time is spent doing mindless things (aka scrolling on Instagram for hours…) and how much time is dedicated to our phones, gadgets, gizmos, etc. It’s a lot and when you’re running your own biz, you really spend more time on these things because I know if I didn’t I would feel I wasn’t making any progress. But after a week off, one thing rang true.

Simplicity is key.

Sinfully Simple Veggie Pot Pies

2015-02-20 21.05.24-1

Happy Friday darlings! I’m sitting here, cozied up on the couch planning for the month of April (can you believe April starts next week?!) and reflecting on last night’s workshop. Yesterday, I co-hosted a workshop with a wonderful yoga teacher, Erica, from Nueva Alma Yoga and Wellness Studio. She led our class through a soulful yoga flow while I led one of my first (not in my home) cooking demos. Holy cow! You know, I am amazed at how obvious the signs from the Universe are when we just listen. For real though. I kid you not. There was something absolutely natural and free-ing about leading the cooking demo and I really felt I was in my element. You besta believe, I’m gonna do more of these thangs 😉

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Potatoes

Holy cow…last week was such doozy. I don’t remember the last time I was horribly sick like I was last week. Fever, cough, mucus, all that soreness and muscle aches. The whole shebang. I had it. It sucked. I was out of commission and felt completely tortured. I have a confession to make. I don’t know what it means to take a break. I LOVE to work. Well, I love to cook, coach and share my wisdom and it’s not really work when you love it, right? But I am such a go, go, go person. Gotta do this, gotta do that. And my body said, “hey girl it’s time for a vacay.” Also known as “be on bed rest and do absolutely nothing and catch up with the Kardashians on the couch.”
