When I say this recipe is easy, I mean: it seriously takes less than 10 minutes to…

How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

I know, I know. The universe probably wasn’t looking for another recipe on homemade almond milk. But in the spirit of wanting to be a one-stop wellness and sustainability shop, here we are! It’s been about 2 years since I first made homemade almond milk and, if I’m being honest, I haven’t made it all too often since. Not because it isn’t incredibly simple, but because it’s really easy to put a carton of store…

Korean Beef Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw and Kimchi

It’s Taco Tuesday! And it’s been a while since I’ve shared a dinner recipe with you all, but I’m back with a good one. Corey was craving tacos this weekend and trust me, I love tacos, but sometimes my basic taco recipe rotation grows tired. It’s always shredded green chicken, blackened fish or grilled steak. Don’t get me wrong, those are all AMAZING choices, but sometimes I find myself in a recipe rut and can…

3 Affordable Eco-Conscious Clothing Brands For Everyday Comfort

Hey, friends! Today we are entering uncharted territory for Minding My Soul by discussing…clothing? Yes! It’s safe to say this space is evolving to be way more than a food blog; and for this inaugural apparel post, I’m discussing a few eco-conscious clothing brands that have become wardrobe staples over the past year. But, first things first: I want to acknowledge that the word affordable can definitely be both subjective and relative. Everyone has their own…

Sustainable Living Challenge: Use Reusable Shopping Bags

Hey, friends! 2018 was a good year of growth, especially when it came to sustainable living. Inspired by my own journey, I decided to include a 12 month Sustainable Living Challenge in my 2019 monthly newsletters! In the newsletter, I share a couple of tips on making the switch easier and a habit tracking tool. Cool, right? Then I asked myself: why not also write about and share the challenge on this platform? Having the…

Rosemary Grapefruit Champagne Cocktail

I thought I was done posting for 2018, but then I made an impromptu champagne cocktail for tonight and decided I wanted to get this short recipe up immediately — in the event you folks might still be searching for a festive NYE beverage. This drink might be bit extra in terms of ingredients, but truthfully I had everything already on hand with the exception of the champagne. You could certainly skip out on a…

Reflections of the Year and Intentions For 2019

And just like that, the year comes to an end! I’d be lying if I said 2018 wasn’t one of the best years of my life. I got married to my best friend, I enrolled with IIN, I continued to grow my blog, I made some new friends and made great strides in my relationship with myself. The year was filled with so much joy, positivity and growth, but also filled with a lot of…

How to Cultivate a Sustainable Coffee Ritual

If I’ve learned one thing about sustainability through the past year, its to respect progress over perfection. Ideally, we could create a more sustainable home environment at the drop of a hat, but the reality is that making a shift towards a more eco-conscious way of living can require the investment of both time and money. I’ve also learned, however, that at any given time you can easily start making more intentional decisions that help…

Why I Chose To Become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

Just a little over a year ago, a little voice inside started to whisper at me. Then it started to speak a little louder and louder until eventually it was shouting. But it wasn’t the same voice that whispered insults on “bad mirror days.” Or the same one that told me I “couldn’t/shouldn’t do _______ for a living.” Or the voice that made me compare myself to everyone else. Instead this voice was kind. It…

Orange Cardamom Snickerdoodles

I’m not sure what happened, but suddenly I love baking! I have my theories as to why, but we’ll get to that in minute. First: let’s talk cookies! I’ve learned: baking is actual quite simple if you can get to know the basic staple recipes. From there, you can add, subtract and experiment with different ingredients, flavors and spices. I’m all in on the standard holiday flavors like peppermint mocha, gingerbread, eggnog and chocolate, but…
