It's zucchini season around here. And grilling season. So I've been getting creative with ways to incorporate both into our diets, while still being mindful to include all 5 tastes since i find when I do, i feel more nourished. When we don't feel truly nourished or satiated by our meal, it often causes us… Continue reading Thai Ginger Summer Skewers with Peanut Sauce
This is such a simple meal, but so full of flavor. It's a summer favorite around here, but this time I switched up the ingredients a bit, and we loved it even more, so I had to share the recipe! Ingredients 2 cups Basmati rice Full fat coconut milk Green onion 2 lemons or 3… Continue reading Coconut Rice + Garlic Grilled Chicken + Mango Cucumber Salsa

My whole life, I’ve found peace in the woods. When I was a kid, we went every Sunday until it was too snowy to go. When i was in college, while most people partied, I went to bed early so that I could get up early to explore the mountains. I never could understand why… Continue reading The Medicine in Living Things
One sure-fire way to love morning is to bake before bed. Last night I finally put the little pie pumpkin we bought Easton to good use (we never got around to carving it anyway). I love pumpkin recipes all fall (September-November!), and this was a hit this morning with coffee around here. Since it was… Continue reading What’s for Breakfast:

This isn't a post about what your dosha is. You can find fairly accurate quizzes for knowing your dosha from various sites on-line (far more accurate than buzzfeed quizzes plaguing facebook for which I am grateful while breastfeeding at 3 in the morning). What's a dosha? In case you aren't part of the yoga world,… Continue reading A Delicate Balance–Ayurveda Part 2.
