The best overnight oats recipe ever

The best overnight oats recipe ever
I am obsessed with breakfast. It’s the one meal a day I get to eat in silence, in peace, alone (okay, except for the weekends), and I used to struggle with finding something I actually enjoyed eating first thing in the morning that didn’t make me feel like crap after. I don’t like to “cook”... Read more »

Love yourself enough to say no

Love yourself enough to say no
But never have I been a blue calm sea I have always been a storm ~ Stevie Nicks I wanted to start this post off by saying, “Joy is my home. I live there. I live here.” But because I’ve been listening to this Fleetwood Mac gem on repeat (“Storms,” new to me but originally... Read more »

Things you should never say to a woman you love

Things you should never say to a woman you love
I don’t have daughters, but I do still try to care for my own inner child like I would a small person because the world can be a pretty ignorant place when it comes to manners, kindness and sensitivity. For women this often manifests in the realm of body image issues. So can we all... Read more »

How to make homemade hemp milk
As I am slowly working to address some of the foods that are causing imbalances in my body by swapping out ingredients and trying new things, I realized that both coconut and almond milk are no longer viable options to add to things like coffees, teas and in place of dairy when baking.

Cooking for one — not for my family

Cooking for one — not for my family
Confession time: I am not a perfect mom, and I have never mastered the art of cooking the perfect meal for my family that everyone will actually eat without complaining. And I know I’m not the only one out there. Dinnertime is probably the most stressful part of my day. It involves a five-year-old doing... Read more »

I have been taking part in the Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experiences since they first began a few years ago. They’ve all been wonderful — I do them every morning for 21-plus days, and they have become my preferred guided meditation, a favorite with no close second.

If your resolutions are already slipping, they probably aren't right for you

If your resolutions are already slipping, they probably aren't right for you
I’m always on board with goals and resolutions in December and January, but something that’s also super important to me is staying true to who you are and being brave enough to put it out into the world in the culture we’ve created of online shaming, criticism for being different, etc. Too often we take...

Motivation creates resolutions; attention keeps them alive

Motivation creates resolutions; attention keeps them alive
There are two magazines I am always drawn to in the checkout line these days: O magazine and Real Simple. I am up to my eyeballs in recipes, and I get Entrepreneur, Parents, Rachael Ray, Shape, Vogue, Glamour and SELF for free — but they rarely see the light of day. The January issue of... Read more »

A fall food bucket list

A fall food bucket list
Confession time: I have not been cooking much lately. Although you wouldn’t know it if you saw my kitchen sink; dishes are overflowing because…the dishwasher is broken. I get to hand washing as often as I can, and I did make some homemade spaghetti sauce over the weekend, but can I cook the spaghetti? No,... Read more »
