Meatless Monday: Squash Noodles with Spinach-Basil Pesto

Hello Darlings!

Now, I am all about pasta. I have definitely eaten my way around Italy, devouring it in all its shapes and sizes. But I do have to say, it isn’t exactly the lightest meal. So with spring having sprung, squash noodles are a great alternative to the heavy deliciousness. Topped with flavorful (and anti-oxidant rich) pesto you really can’t go wrong!

Meatless Monday: Tropical Chia Seed Pudding (Vegan)

Hello Darlings!

Winter in Colorado is strange. It will be 70 degrees and sunny one week and the next it will be 16 and snowing. Maybe the crazy weather is just a Denver phenomenon, but when I had the chance to jet off to Florida to visit a friend I jumped at the chance. Salt water, sand, and warm sun? Yes please!

Meatless Monday: Every Beet of My Heart Arugula Salad (Vegan)

Hello Darlings!

Okay, I admit it- this is the cheesiest recipe (and name) that exists on this blog and I ADORE it. With Valentine’s Day coming up red, pink, and white have everywhere and I knew I wanted to do something fun and festive as a side dish for the day set aside to celebrate our love (whether that is another person, or yourself it doesn’t matter!).  I spotted these gorgeous beets while perusing the produce section and my cheesy self turned on, “aww, every BEET of my heart.” Yep, that’s me- weirdo extraordinaire.

Yoga Poses to Beat the Winter Blues & Kharma Khare Yoga Mat Review

Hello Darlings!

My yoga practice is a bit unorthodox. And because of that my mats take a beating. From puppy paws to Red Rocks’ dirt to mountain snow, they have to bear a little bit of everything. So when Kharma Khare reached out to see if I might want to take their Hybrid Bliss Non Slip Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat for a test drive I knew I had to put it through the ringer before sharing it with you lovelies. And, boy, did it pass with flying colors!
