What Day Is It Smoothie?

  Have you ever had a week where you thought it was a different day of the week ALL WEEK LONG!? That was me this week, and apparently a lot of others too. Yesterday I taught my first class at Marin Power Yoga and when I asked if anyone was feeling the same it seemed...

Best Travel Protein Shake

  This a lick-the-blender type of smoothie. Real good. Traveling is one of the biggest obstacles when it comes to sticking to eating well. At least for me. I want to indulge and throw the 'I'm on vacation' excuse at every meal, snack, opportunity for dessert. When you...

AB & J Smoothie

  If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Easy. Almond Butter and Strawberry Jam Sandwich with granola sprinkled inside, and a tall glass of freshly made almond milk on the side. Surprising or, no? I make a mean butter and jam sandwich....

Takeout Salad Smoothie

  You know those side salads that come with takeout meals that you never eat? This is the perfect smoothie for them. Since moving up to Marin, Caden and I have eaten the Puerto Rican neighborhood favorite, Sol Foods, twice now. (We've only been here a week!) We've...

Miami Rituals

  Home, sweet home. There is nowhere I love more than Miami. New York is a close second. Very, very close; but still, second. There is no energy like Miami. There are no people as lively, loud, or as fun. It's just a fact. While a haphazard, offbeat culture, Miami...

SoCal Matcha

  A matcha-lovers guide to the best in Orange County. I'll just get it out of the way by saying my favorite matcha is always the one I make myself at home. Mizuba matcha is by far my favorite brand, so that's what I use. I also always, always go with unsweetened...

Shelby’s Baked – Ziti

  This ziti was made in honor of my parents.  My dad is part-Sicilian and my mom is half-Japanese. While there aren't many chefs in my family, the one thing my mom did make consistently while I was growing up was baked ziti! It's easy, cheesy and so versatile. This is...

Where Does it Come From?

  Your food. Do you know where it comes from? I feel like children in particular are becoming more and more detached from reality. My generation may have been the last to experience running around in the actual streets with neighbor friends. Does anyone ever see kids...

Easy Coconut Macaroons

  You know those side salads that come with takeout meals that you never eat? This is the perfect smoothie for them. Baking queen here. If you love coconut macaroons you may want to stay away from this post, because they are actually so easy to make. For any...

Protein + Nitro Smoothie

  This is an easy, delicious smoothie. I like to make it in the morning. It has caffeine, protein and vegetables. What more could you want to start your day? I've learned that having a vegetable and protein rich breakfast keeps my energy up well past what a fruit and...
