Cauliflower Chickpea Curry

With COVID-19 spreading and everyone social distancing, I thought I’d share a recipe that’s easy, flavorful, and has minimal fresh ingredients for those of us who are immune compromised and avoiding grocery store trips as much as possible. This vegetarian curry is an awesome recipe to have on hand for those days you just don’t … Continue reading Cauliflower Chickpea Curry

10 Tips to Get Moving Every Day

One of the essential habits I help my Happy Healthy Habits course members implement in their lives is Breath-Body Practice. I call it Breath-Body Practice instead of ‘exercise’ or ‘working out’ because it’s about connecting our breath with our bodies and honoring our need for movement, rather than subjecting ourselves to disembodied physical activity because … Continue reading 10 Tips to Get Moving Every Day

Below are two different Thanksgiving scenarios: one is the Thanksgiving I used to have, the other is the Thanksgiving I intend to have going forward.

Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Take the Step

When was the last time you told yourself “I’ll start tomorrow….”? It was probably recently. I used to tell myself that every single day, about healthy eating, working out, practicing mindfulness, telling someone I’m thinking about them. I still catch myself thinking it now. Why do we do that? Why do we put it off, … Continue reading Take the Step
