Rainbow Fried Rice

Things I learned yesterday: people love talking about self-care and they love seeing ugly and embarrassing photos of other people. Tazo chai concentrate actually isn’t that good and I need to learn how to make my own. There are little microanimals called tardigrades or water bears that are super cute and basically indestructible. Do you listen to podcasts? I…

DIY Skin Rescue

*If you don’t feel like making this product yourself, click here to buy it! Read to the bottom to get a COUPON CODE (: Yesterday, as I was waiting for an update to download on my computer, I was looking through my Mac’s Photobooth app and was completely shocked to see how terrible my skin used to…

Turnip the Beet Juice

Okay, okay, so technically they’re radishes, not turnips, but CLOSE ENOUGH, right? So I have a question for you. Do you remember where you were when you drank your first smoothie or pressed juice? And do you have any special memories tied to smoothies and juices? When I was in high school (before I could…

Purple Sweet Potato Crust Quiche

Purple sweet potatoes are my favorite food right now, so you can imagine my excitement when our new Trader Joe’s had BAGS of organic ones! If you haven’t had them before, do yourself a favor and check your nearest health store, Whole Foods, or TJ’s and pick up a few. Regular sweet potatoes can be stringy. That texture…

Yesterday had some pretty hilarious ups and downs. Not sleeping til 4 am, finding a Greek gluten free calzone at the store and breaking my no-processed food general rule, discovering it was full of black olives (yuck), telling a customer service employee she needed to check her attitude (she was super rude), making an amazing…

DIY Calendula Lavender Clay Mask

Okay, real talk. People always say you “grow out” of having breakouts, and that only teenagers get them because, well… hormones are crazy. But as I get older, my skin gets worse: wrinkles, acne, dark spots, redness (especially since I developed histamine intolerance). I miss the days when I would feel confident without wearing foundation…

My Go-To Anti-Inflammatory Green Juice

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday. What are you up to today? Do you ever have those nights where you go to bed at a decent time, but you’re completely awake for a few hours, just tossing and turning? That has been me the last few nights, and I can’t figure out why. I could NOT sleep…

DIY Gemstone Soap

I don’t know what got into me this morning, but I signed up for six webinars that I saw on Facebook, listened to three of them, created this blog, made these soaps, and wrote this post. And I didn’t even have coffee this morning! Ha. It has been rainy here in California for weeks and…
