I had a lot of trouble trying to decide on the name of this post. Why? Because these cookies aren’t just the best gluten free cookies ever. They are so much more than that.

There’s a cute little coffee shop called The Annex in my neighborhood (Fort Greene, Brooklyn) that has all the regular coffee shop fare – strong caffeinated beverages and an abundance of baked goods — but they also have something else, something that usually sells out quickly, something you have to get there early in order […]

About 5 days before I left for the Hanuman Festival last month, I started to feel a little sore throat. Uh oh. That’s always the first sign of getting full-blown sick, right? I took a day to rest, but the next day I woke up feeling like I got hit in the face with a […]

It’s holiday time!! For most people, the time between Thanksgiving through the New Year usually means indulging in lots of sugar, flour, dairy, processed foods, sugary/boozy drinks, and all those usual suspects. Too much of that stuff can leave us feeling really depleted, moody, and practically begging for some quality nutrients. 🙂 While I totally […]

Right now I’m in Los Angeles and I’m staying dangerously close to Cafe Gratitude. I’m talking like a 5 minute walk. I say dangerously because I have been going there very single day, which feels excessive. Ah, well, it’s not the worst place to spend my money…and I’m eating a ton of greens. So I […]

I’ve always loved avocados. They are one of my favorite foods, for sure. But I never really knew what avocados really had the potential to be like until I tried them in California. They are so incredible out here! They seem creamier, richer, and have a lot more flavor than the avocados I’ve eaten on […]

I love guacamole. In fact, I consider it to be one of the earth’s greatest gifts to humans. It’s delicious, full of healthy delights, great for parties…what more could you ask for? The one thing that gets me though…is when guacamole has too many huge chunks of tomato. I mean, I’ll still eat it, but […]

I love when a great salad comes together unexpectedly. My mom and I came up with this recipe last night based on some ingredients she had around the house. The reason I decided to call it “Circus Salad” is because it has a bunch of random (but awesome) ingredients, kind of like a circus. Also, […]

Happy St. Patty’s Day! Ok, fine. This isn’t actually BEER. Don’t be mad. But it’s green, bubbly, and will make you feel amazing (with no hangover!) Normally, green beer on St. Patty’s Day is made with green food coloring. WTF is food coloring? It’s NOT food, that’s all I know, and there are plenty of […]
