Self Care: Important to Mind, Body & Soul (featuring Vlogger, Barnetta Bradley)

Self Care is having a total moment right now. In fact, its somewhere on the list of 2017 MVP’s. Many health trends have come and gone, or faded out under the shade of the newest thing. #SelfCare, however, came in like a wrecking ball and has no plans to leave anytime soon. So what constitutes as self-care? Most basically and most literally, Self Care is the act of caring for yourself. The vagueness of the…

Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yep, Its Holiday Baking Season. Corey and I are going to a cookie swap party in a few weeks, so we decided to do a trial run of an almond flour sugar recipe. This recipe was an adaptation of Detoxinista’s Paleo Sugar Cookies. Instead of making the honey “buttercream” though, I made a homemade buttercream frosting from confectioners sugar and pasture raised organic butter. This sugar cookie…

Roseberry Mule

Last weekend was the official start of the holiday season for Corey and I! We broke in our new Christmas Pj’s, put on some Christmas vinyl, and decorated the apartment/tree. We’ve already started a tradition of decorating the house during the day, then going out for dinner before returning home to watch the Grinch, make festive drinks, and decorate the tree. Corey and I have taken an interest in homemade mixology over the last year.…

Apple & Pear Rustic Tart

The air has certainly gotten chillier in the last week or so, and combine that with daylight savings and I’m in full blown winter mode. Late fall into winter is my favorite time of the year to bake. The holiday decor, the warmth of the oven along with the smell of the baked goods makes the apartment feel so cozy. On Friday I had a day off from work and we had a high of…

Honey Mocha Latte

Hello fellow coffee fiends — Im back with another latte recipe! This recipe is loaded with super food goodies like raw cacao, maca, cinnamon and raw honey. The collagen peptides are completely optional, but they do contribute to the frothiness and the protein content of the coffee. Raw cacao is chocolatey and full of antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium — all things that do wonders for the body. This took just a few minutes to whip…

Enjoying the Beauty of Autumn

Ive decided I want to start quarterly posts featuring what I love most about the current season and ways I’ve taken advantage of what the season offers. Its easy to let seasons come and go and feel like you were too busy to really enjoy it. Taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of a season is a great thing to do for you mental health and happiness. I love the changing air, baking fall…

Farmer’s Market Plate

I’ve always adored farmer’s markets. Actually, any open air local market — farmer’s, food fairs, art/craft bazaars, etc. I especially love farmer’s markets in small rural towns, such as where I currently live, Watertown. It’s a great opportunity to shop and support local business/economy, and also a great opportunity to get some seriously fresh market goods. When you live in an area with a health food market (i.e. Whole Foods, Sprouts, Erewhon, etc.) you are…

Dear Gym, It’s not you, It’s me.

I twist my crazy curls up into a bun and walk out of the locker room. I look around and can’t help but feel overwhelmed — Should I do cardio? What machine? I should probably pick one where I can’t see the clock. Maybe I’ll skip cardio and just lift, but there are so many people on the weight floor. Ill go do abs. Why are there so many people on the ab mat? How does…
