Fall Gourds

Fall Cooking Guide

Crisp air, cozy sweaters, pumpkins and apples galore – my favorite season is in full swing and I couldn’t be more excited!  When the temperatures dip, there’s nothing better than having something warm and comforting simmering on the stove.  The farmer’s market is currently brimming will all sorts of gorgeous ingredients to cook with.  If […]

Toddler-Friendly Vegan Meals

I recently wrote about raising healthy eaters and have since then been brainstorming on new ways to get my 2 year old daughter to eat green vegetables.  Despite my best efforts to transfer my love of all things cruciferous to her, she still mostly turns her nose up at a pile of greens (insert heavy sigh here).  I’m forever […]

5 Small Changes to Reduce Meat & Dairy Consumption

If you’re accustomed to eating meat and/or dairy at most meals, the notion of going vegan might seem daunting and somewhat scary, if not totally impossible.  Personally, I rarely succeed with a “cold turkey” (no pun intended) mentality when it comes to diet.  That being said, “balance” and “moderation” can be a slippery slope and difficult to define.  In […]

Vegan Thanksgiving

Vegan Thanksgiving!

Here we are – Thanksgiving week is upon us!  It totally crept up on us this year, right?  I’m already feeling the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, planning my menu for Thursday, gearing up to face the insanity in the supermarket this week, but so grateful that this holiday exists.  2016 was not […]

How to Cope When Things Look Bleak

I recently sent this letter out to my newsletter subscribers (if you’re not on my list, you can easily subscribe on my homepage!) – I thought I’d post here since these are trying times, and we all need to feel more empowered. These are crazy times. Stressful times, uncertain times. It’s safe to say that […]

Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that nearly everyone loves hot spinach and artichoke dip – sadly for us, this beloved appetizer is full of animal products, cholesterol, saturated fat, and other nasties.  What’s a girl to do?  Create an all natural vegan version that doesn’t rely on commercial cheese/dairy substitutes, of course!  Hallelujah, praise […]

Vegan Parmesan Cheese

1-Minute Vegan Parmesan Cheese

As a card-carrying proud Italian, I love my pasta.  And (vegan) pizza.  When I gave up cheese, I missed the depth of flavor and umami that a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese would give a dish.  I learned to live without it – that is, until I created the fastest, easiest, most delicious recipe for vegan […]

Balance in Business and Motherhood

Finding Balance as a Mother and Business Owner

Nearly two years ago, I became a mother to a beautiful baby girl.  Since then, I’ve learned that parenting is the ultimate paradox: it’s greater than my wildest dreams – my heart is bursting beyond capacity every day – but at the same time, I regularly feel utterly depleted, physically and emotionally, and have probably never cried so […]

5 Tips for Raising Healthy Eaters

So many of my clients ask me for tips on helping their children develop healthy eating habits.  It makes sense that this is of such high priority to health conscious parents – if kids start eating well from a young age, it will set a strong foundation for the rest of their lives and will help them avoid many of […]

Farmers Market Tips

7 Tips to Take to the Farmer’s Market

Now that the blazing heat of summer is upon us, the farmer’s market is overflowing with so much goodness.  Restraint is not my strong suit in the face of gorgeous, local veggies – by the time I leave, both arms are weighed down with so many bags that I actually get nervous thinking about finding the time to […]
