Motivational Monday!

Happy Monday friends!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Things are moving (albeit quite slowly) on the moving front and we even had time to watch our beloved Downton Abbey and dine at our favorite sushi spot one last time.

Here are some gems of world wide webbery:

This chocolate galaxy banana cheesecake from Pie in the Sky looks super good!

Natural News wrote on the top four reasons to add chlorella to your diet. I haven’t taken chlorella in quite some time but I am thinking about jumping back on the bandwagon…

This raw cranberry walnut cheese from Rawmazing is not only vegan, but is perfect to bring to your next winter gathering! Also, if putting probiotics in your food ain’t your thing, subbing with apple cider vinegar works just fine.

This coconut spinach with chickpea + lemon recipe from The Kitchn looks delicious and is perfect for my detox days (without the sun dried tomatoes, please).

And I will leave you with something I have been listening to lately (you gotta mix it up, ya know?) Hildegard von Bingen’s Canticles of Ecstasy has been my relaxing-but-getting-stuff-done music and it has been great. You can even check it out on Spotify!

Stay tuned for a detox update tomorrow and have a great day!

Motivational Mondays!

Hi friends!

This week has gotten off to a wonderful start. I had my first day of school today! It was great to meet the faculty + other students (who are all already practicing health practitioners, eep!) and I can’t wait to dive head-first into my studies.

Here are a few virtual goodies:

I found a new healthy food blog to follow! Ahh! This is something that always fills me with joy and from Healthy Green Kitchen, I bring you a delicious recipe for walnut butter with dried cherries + cacao nibs! I cannot wait to make this…as I have mentioned before, I have a husband with a sweet tooth and I am always trying to find healthier versions of yummy things. The photography on HGK is absolutely beautiful and there are tons of amazing recipes like a spicy cucumber salad, a (mostly) raw vegan apricot blackberry pie and vegan + gluten-free coconut raisin scones!

Check out this dreamy September mix from Poppy and Leo.

This “mermaid salad” from Kelly Keough is delicious + nutritious!

Heidi has done it again! This time with a beautiful spin on a chimichurri.

And I will leave you with a DIY (and easily veganize-able) version of the Starbucks pumpkin latte!
