Wake up. Check e-mail. Check Facebook. Post & scroll through Instagram. Wake up. Listen to the water. Snuggle with my hubs. Go for a morning snorkel. Lay in the hammock. There is no doubt which one sounds more appealing. And though the latter is only going to be available to very few year round, why not try and mimic our vacation life more frequently in our daily life?

I’m sitting on my porch in Koh Tao this morning, with ants crawling all over my screen, sipping on what I thought was a coffee, but rather ended up being a sugar bomb with a trace of coffee, scratching my 755 mosquito bites, and already starting to sweat at 730am. I was so angry last night as we were hiking up the Rockies of Thailand…okay maybe a bit of a hyperbole, but it was steep! Yet I cannot remember a morning that I woke up happier, of course I have a view of a still water through tropical plants and bougainvilleas with a great porch to do morning relaxation and yoga so that doesn’t hurt either. Not in spite of all of these things, but because of all of them. Continue reading Naturally nourished travel: Veggie frittata + learning to slow travel

Continue reading Baked breakfast tacos to-go + salsa verde
“Mmmmmm donuts. Mmmmmmm chocolate. Mmmmmmm chocolate and peanut butter donuts. Mmmmmmm salted peanut butter glaze.” This was my thought process on making these donuts. I had done a chocolate peanut butter donut way back that got a crazy response on social media, but I never nailed down a recipe. In comes a month of weddings out of state and out of the country and in comes my crazy “need to use all of our food so it doesn’t go to waste” bakeathons and cookathons. I’m pretty sure I have made about 324 baked goods this past week. (And yes, I gave most of those away). But these donuts take the
cake. Errr donuts? Continue reading Chocolate peanut butter donuts + salted PB glaze (vegan, GF)
I swear to you I am not having a love affair with beets. Okay, maybe just a little. Seriously, what’s not to love? Continue reading Herb beetroot & green frittata
What if I told you that you could make homemade cereal without all of the weird additives and crazy amounts of sugar? What if I told you that you could make cookie cereal that is vegan, grain-free & only sweetened with dates? I present to you…homemade cookie crisp cereal.
