This is something I've been wanting to write to you about for a long time and I’m ready now. I want to share more of my healing story with you. First though I have to tell you, I started writing it down and it got a little long so this is going to be a… Continue reading My Healing Story – Part I: What Do You Mean I Have an Autoimmune Disease?
Is there anything better than classic chicken soup on a cold day... or really any day? Every year I get really into soups when the weather turns cold. I have my regular go-to's like this and this. But what I enjoy just as much as my old favorites is trying new things and experimenting with… Continue reading Classic Chicken Soup in a Slow Cooker
I mustache you a question. How do you feel about a green smoothie in the winter? Me, I can't take the cold. So lately I've been making a warm smoothie and while I have to admit it sounded a little weird at first, I gotta say I like the change.

That was my little joke during our long weekend visit with friends, because every day involved something Indian. We were there primarily to see my friend Lauren perform in… Continue reading Coconut Chicken Curry
It may look like just soup... but this is so much more than that. That little bowl right there is jam packed full of flu fighters - ginger, garlic, onion and sweet potato. We've been cramming these ingredients into alot of meals these days to help get us through the winter flu-free. So far it's… Continue reading Curried Sweet Potato & Ginger Soup
It may not be the prettiest of meals, but for a simple dinner on the quick, cheap and healthy, it'll do just fine. This has become a go-to at our house when the fridge is bare and dinner comes down to pantry staples. It's called dahl, an Indian lentil dish that's strong in flavor and… Continue reading Green Lentil Dahl
