Also known as Coconut Five Ways… this Coconut Baked Oatmeal is a satisfying breakfast for snow days, lazy days, and even brunch with friends. Totally meal preppable, of course, because I love to help you cook once and eat twice, thrice, and more throughout the week.
A strained relationship with food can have a cascade effect on the rest of our lives. Not only does it create anxiety around food and guilt about our choices, but it can cause us to self-isolate, too. This loneliness brings us even more feelings that can be hard to deal with, further moving along the cycle of emotional eating.
Smoke cleansing is a global practice that’s been used by many cultures since ancient times, but has become more mainstream lately. With anything that goes mainstream and is commodified, it is often taken out of context and used inappropriately. I know we have good intentions, but it’s important to evaluate our practices and learn where they came from to see if and how our actions affect others.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever worked through an illness. (Guilty!) You have a horrible cold, you’re not feeling so well, but you don’t have any more sick days so you just kind of stare at your computer all day pretending you’ll be productive.
Or instead, ever had coworkers that come in when they should definitely have stayed home? There’s always one. And sometimes it’s you.
It’s part of life—if we’re going out into the world, we’re going to encounter germs, and the best thing we can do is to build up our immunity to help avoid getting sick.
Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! This pumpkin custard dessert is a really simple recipe that takes just 10 minutes to put together — the longest part is cooling the mixture until it sets. But it’ll be worth the wait, I promise!
I hear from a lot of people that the holidays make them anxious, especially if they’re working through eating more mindfully and getting OUT of diet culture. Not everyone is on the same path, so it’s likely you’re going to be challenged and encounter the behaviors you’re working so hard to put past you.
Affectionately known as “goth balls” — here’s another spooky Halloween snack. I don’t love energy bites that are date-based, and they all seem to be, so I whipped up my own batch with the jar of black sesame paste I still have yet to finish.
Food sensitivities, intolerances, and allergies are becoming more and more common (and yes, they are different from one another!).
There are a few reasons that may be driving this, but I believe it is in large part due to the amount of stress we are under, paired with the amount of processed, nutrient-deficient foods we (as a society) have in our diets.
I’m really getting into the hokey Halloween recipes this year. And with a jar of black sesame paste to use up, you better believe there’s more spooky goth treats coming your way.
