Cacao Rice Crispy Treats


I stumbled across this poem the other day;


Do you remember the night the moon dropped from the sky?

And we ran through the forest to find where it lie,

I was tripping on tree roots and slipping on snow,

You were holding my hand saying not to let go,

When we found it at last there were twigs in our hair,

A rose on our cheeks and our breath in the air, 

And the words to describe it got caught in our throats,

And its silver light danced through the threads on our coats,

We knew that our eyes had not seen such a view,

You were looking at it,

I was looking at you.

Mediterranean Tacos with Roasted Chickpeas and Tzatziki


There’s no if’s, and’s or but’s about it I have a serious problem with over working my brain. I know I’m not the only one who’s burdened by this dilemma either. In the chaotic world we live in it’s hard not to get wrapped up in it all. No matter what is occurring, good or bad, life is constantly propelling us in a forward motion on a rollercoaster of sorts. While we find ourselves being thrown to the wolves more often than not, we tend to neglect the sole most important thing, ourselves. In doing so we can often lose sight of our value, our worth and even our strength. When, during the 1,440 minutes that occur in a single day do we every really, like REALLY, stop and give our mind a break? When do we stop, take a deep breath and focus on our real intention, self love? Sadly, many of you, myself included, will probably say almost never. So how in those 1,440 minutes a day or 525,600 minutes in a year can’t we make even a little time for ourselves?

Well, now when you put it that way… Continue reading

Overnight Savory Oats With Delicata Squash and Eggs


I stumbled across some interesting breakfast ideas one day…oatmeal that didn’t include the sweet stuff. Absolutely none what so ever to be exact. I was totally skeptical about the thought of “savory” oats. I may have even gasped out loud while reading. I mean, aren’t oats supposed to be a hearty, sweet, delicious bed for berries, banana, nut butters, chocolate, coconut, seeds, granola, honey, etc. etc.? I mean what’s this “lets add veggies and savory herbs” nonsense?  I felt like suddenly I was my own younger self’s worst nightmare trying to sneak veggies in anywhere I can. Is someone out there TRYING to sabotage my breakfast!? C’mon! Continue reading
