I have been feeling dehydrated lately, so on a break from work I stopped by home really quick and made this delicious fruit smoothie packed with electrolytes. All four ingredients in this smoothie contain potassium + the coconut water is filled with sodium, magnesium & phosphorus too.

Strawberry-Banana Slushie

It’s a beautiful November day here in Southern California so I whipped up this slushie to energize me for cooking all day (and cool down, it’s hot out today!) It’s super easy to make- only 3 ingredients! But it was really delicious so I figured I’d post it 😉 Strawberries are going out of season but I bought some 3-packs at the farmer’s market recently, de-stemmed and froze them for smoothies.

Autumn Vegetable & Chickpea Curry Stew

I bought all of this fresh produce yesterday at the farmer’s market for only $30 bucks. Who says eating healthy, organic food has to be expensive? This food will make a LOT of meals for myself and my boyfriend this week. First up? This lovely Autumn Vegetable & Chickpea Curry Stew. It’s really delicious and a little spicy with a beautiful aroma (it’s more of an indian curry). It makes a big pot full of stew so you can make it on a Sunday and re-heat throughout the week. Bon Appetite!

Pumpkin-Apple Oat Muffins


I woke up today thinking “I want to make a bunch of pumpkin flavored recipes…” so I went out to Whole Foods, bought some organic pumpkin puree and got to work. These were the first of my pumpkin experiments and they turned out really fluffy, moist & delicious– despite the fact that they’re gluten-free and vegan (sometimes gluten-free baking turns out like a brick). I added apples to the muffins to add an extra sweetness- they’re at the peak of their season right now and absolutely delicious so head to your local farmer’s market, co-op or grocery store and stock up.

You may notice my website looks completely different and it has a new name. No it is not a re-directing mistake! I’ve decided to re-brand my blog, something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now.

Farmer’s Market Quinoa & Heirloom Tomato Salad


This dish was so simple and lovely. The hardest part about making it was trying to not eat the ingredients as I put it together! Make it as a lunch for yourself, or serve it as an appetizer with a meal.

Roasted Purple Potato Slices

Purple potatoes are beautiful and the deep-hue makes them a unique side dish to any entree or breakfast. The lovely thing about these tots is that the purple potato packs far more antioxidants than their yellow and red counterparts so pick some up next time you’re buying potatoes. I bought mine at my local farmer’s market out here in California (they’re in season!)
