I’m so so so excited. My apartment is really starting to feel like home as I watch my vision come to life. As you may know, I moved into my new SF digs about 2 months ago, and getting it together has been a process, let me tell you.

Let’s face it… moving is such a pain in the ass, and this move definitely did not go off without a hitch. There were a few hiccups, such as my couch not fitting in the elevator. I live on the 8th floor, so this was a problem. As annoying as this was, it was also kind of amazing, because it gave me the perfect excuse to start from square one.… Read More

Thanksgiving Survival Guide

So, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW!┬áNot quite sure how that happened, but other than one final trip to the market, I think I’m ready. Now that I know what I’m putting on the table, time to figure out what I’m putting on myself. I think Thanksgiving is the perfect day to channel a younger, chicer Martha Stewart. Think pre-prison days. Anyway, here’s how I’m going to survive the holiday.

Spicy Black Bean Quinoa Burger


Um. I just died and went to vegan heaven! It’s one of those days when I really felt like cooking a super tasty lunch, but was too lazy to go to the market. So, I raised my kitchen for ingreds and adapted a recipe for a homemade black bean burger. Not only is this going to be on constant rotation in my house, but it only took about 10 minutes from top to bottom. And the best part is it’s totally allergen friendly! Gluten free, nut free, dairy free, egg free, vegan. I want to apologize in advance, I’m not much of a measurer when it comes to cooking.… Read More

Bananas over chocolate!


Brrr. It’s kind of gloomy out this morning. You probably know I start every day with a protein smoothie no matter what… but today o was craving something warm and comforting. I wanted to make sure to start my day with my usual 20 grams of vegan protein, so I played around in the kitchen and whipped up this masterpiece. OH MY GOSH! So good! Tastes like warm chocolate banana nut bread… only it’s vegan, paleo, gluten free, and has no added sugar. This recipe will definitely be on repeat!

Ingredients:

– 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
– 2 scoops Arbonne chocolate protein powder
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 dash pink Himalayan salt
– 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Instructions:

– whisk together all ingredients (leave out oats) in sauce pan
– heat on medium heat for 3 minutes
– add gluten free oats and combine
– continue heating another 5 minutes or until desired consistency
– serve warm and top off with 1/2 banana and scoop of nut butter (I’m obsessed with Nuttzo Power Fuel seven seed & nut butter.Read More

So, apparently I blinked and now it’s almost Summer! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been just fine in my boyfriend jeans and slouchy sweaters… but that’s all about to change. It’s time to start thinking about crop tops and swimsuits and I for one want to be ready to flaunt my bikini-bod, er, make that cute one-piece bod ( <– way chicer in my opinion).

How am I planning on prepping for Summer ’16? By getting my detox on. May 2nd marks the start of out BIGGEST detox group EVER! In this case, bigger is totally better because it means more support, more energy, and the chance to be a part of something huge as we all inspire and encourage one another to reach our wellness goals.… Read More
