Plantain Tostadas and Tortillas

Plantain Tostadas and Tortillas

Hi there!  Long time no see… it’s been a bit since my last post!

If you’d like a small explanation as to why the giant chasm of time since I last posted… well, I suppose life happened.  I was still going through health issues – very autoimmune-disease-like health issues, involving some intense inflammation and such – as well as a bit of relationship and work changes, which didn’t really leave me much time for focusing on the blog.  Most of that seems to be quieting down for now, so here I am! 

You still wanted that recipe for Plantain Tortillas, right??

Anyway, I’ve missed it… and I still want to attempt to post here from time to time!  I really love sharing recipes and health information with people, and it’s important to me to be able to do that.  If you’re reading this, feeling a bit like I’ve been a real fair-weather friend here for the last year, please feel free to reach out to me!  There is a contact page here for ya.

Now.  On with the show!

Without further ado, let me introduce my FAVORITE recipe of the past year, with my FAVORITE accompaniments ever!

Easy Weekly Meal Prep for One - or More!

Easy Weekly Meal Prep for One - or More!

Know thyself.

These words from the mythological Oracle of Delphi couldn’t be more apt today.  Know ourselves.  What a concept!  It’s very simple, but totally profound.

We often try to force ourselves into a mold in some way or another.  Think about it:  We’ll often go after many diet plans, fitness regimens, clothing styles, and even behavior patterns that aren’t really… us.

And, while, obviously, we don’t have to be totally out there and non-conformist to be individuals, respecting certain little things about ourselves can make a huge difference in our productivity and progress.

For me, this has meant coming to understand what I need to do to see changes within myself, fitness-wise, while drawing from fundamental knowledge about health and fitness. 

It really has been a lot of trial and error.  And obsessing.  And scrutinizing.  But once you figure out what works for you – and I’m here to help you make that process easier! – you can really live the rest of your life feeling happy and confident about your health choices!  How liberating is that??

32 Kickoff Recipes for Superbowl Sunday!

It’s hard to believe it’s Superbowl time again!  Some things, like the big game, always come around and make you wonder where the time has gone.  And yet, so many things can change in that time!

If there is one thing I’ve learned over the past year, it’s that life will surprise you.  We can plan all we want for a future we hope for, but in the end, the outcome of our decisions can go any which way.

Spoiler Alert: My Cookbook is Out!

Spoiler Alert: My Cookbook is Out!

Ever get that feeling of being totally owned by your schedule?  Kind of like being tied to the back of a rampaging gorilla that’s really not cool with you being tied to its back? 

Sometimes this feeling occurs to me.  It probably means I need a self-help book on time management. 

Anyway, this is the part where I announce to you the wonderful reason I’ve been so terrible at posting anything consistently for a while…

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so very pleased to announce that today marks the official date that my very first cookbook is released!

YAY. 

I know I’ve been talking about it a bit, but this is kind of a lifelong dream come true here!  And I can tell you, it’s only the first big thing I’ll do this year.

(Also – today 1/12/16 is the last day… but you can still enter to get my book FREE through this page here!)
