With the chilly temperatures and gray days I’ve been making more soups because they are easy, warm, and last many meals.

Yesterday I put together this delicious soup recipe for Garrett and I to enjoy.

Now I am sharing this recipe with y’all so you can make it too!

Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownies

Rich delicious creamy and chocolatey… it’s got my name all over it!

So over the weekend I decided to give Black Bean Brownies a second chance… the first time I made them they were impressive that they didn’t take like beans and how easy they were to make but they weren’t as fudgy as I had wanted them to be.

Sure they were grain free and refined sugar free and dairy free… but they weren’t AMAZING.

Sunday I picked up three cans of black beans to restock my cabinet (we go through a lot of black beans in our house) and I decide it was a great time to make a healthy dessert. I wanted to boost up

Happy New Year!

This is where I want to help... I want you to be the 9%! Have you ever heard of SMART goals?

In 2011 I graduated with a BS in Nutrition and Health Sciences. All my teachers told me to start working in a clinic or a hospital, but that didn’t sound like me... I wanted to encourage people to eat healthy food!


Problem - healthy food in the eyes of Nutrition is brown rice, steamed broccoli, and baked chicken... sounded boring and unsustainable to me! How was I supposed to get people to eat that all the time?? BORRRING!

✨ YOU ARE ENOUGH ✨

✨ YOU ARE ENOUGH ✨


For years I didn’t feel like I was enough. I felt I always missing that ‘it’ factor. 
I felt I wasn’t worthy of great love, making more money, getting the job I wanted, or capable doing soulful work. Even though I wanted all these things so deeply, there was a part of me that said I wasn’t enough. It wasn’t meant for me. That was for other people... 

I felt I wasn’t:


special enough, 
lucky enough, 
connected enough, 
smart enough,
pretty enough,
________ enough.

Super Smoothie

Super Smoothie

Most warm days when I get home from work after going to the gym and my 1.2 mile walk in the sunshine from the train I am craving nutrition in the form of a smoothie. Some days fly by and I haven't had many of the supplements and super items I like to include in my diet. 

This Super Smoothie I also like to call this the Kitchen Sink Smoothie, because I use A LOT of the pantry items. I made it yesterday after work and when Garrett came home he looked at what I was doing and said "I thought we cleaned the kitchen yesterday?" I was standing in the kitchen surrounded by jars, bags, powders, superfoods, and toppings... all the things!
