Lemon Chia-seed Loaf (gluten-free)

It’s been almost 7 months since I’ve eaten gluten. I never thought that I could go for so long without eating wheat. Surprisingly, going gluten-free was not as hard as I thought it would be. However, if you’re considering going gluten free, know that you will have your moments… …when you catch yourself nose deep […]

The Power of Posture

How’s your posture right now? Are you slouched over the screen? Are you touching your neck or crossing your legs? Maybe, like me, you’ve even got them folded up to your chest. It’s true.

With really minimal preparation it’s delicious; it has a mild […]

Green Smoothie

A year ago, I don’t think I’d ever used a blender. Now I use it almost every day for these delicious, nutrient-dense smoothies. I love starting my day off knowing that my body’s fueled well, and drinking these always gives me that peace of mind. Not to mention that I feel more energetic when I […]
