Fair Trade: Be Fair, Buy Fair, Protect the Planet. (& prAna Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

As October comes to a close I hope that you have been bombarded (in the best way possible) with information about Fair Trade goods. October is Fair Trade month, but honestly I think every month should be.

As consumers, sometimes it feels like we go shopping constantly; and with that, we are exposed to an incredible amount of choices. Whether it be at the grocery store, the mall, or online, we are fortunate enough to have to chance to choose what we buy. Why not use that buying power to benefit others while getting high quality products for both you and your family?

Meatless Monday: Vegan Double Onion Chip Dip

Hello Darlings!

Now, I’m a hockey girl through and through. However, I do happen to enjoy some delicious Monday night football-watching probably not-so-good-for-you snacks. Since coming to Denver I have noticed that I have made quite a few friends who are equally as enthused about sports as I am, but have vegan eating habits. So I decided to do a bit of a recipe makeover to make one of my favorite dips vegan!

I have been enjoying Vegenaise for a quite a while- I actually like the taste (milder) better than regular Mayonnaise! So when Vegenaise decided to send over a box of my favorite vegan mayo I was super pleased!

Halloween Made Easy: Chex Party in a Box! (& Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

I love Halloween! Not the creepy, haunted house, real-looking zombies Halloween but the super cute, hand-out candy to two year old bumblebees kind. Yes, I know- I’m a baby but I’m fine with that!

Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Spice- Oatmeal Smoothie

Hello Darlings!

The weather has turned to autumn here in Denver, so in the fall spirit I have been pumpkin-ifying (yes, real word, I promise) my breakfast! This Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Smoothie keeps me energized until lunch- it is chock full of fun ingredients like chia seeds, oatmeal, Skoop (my favorite superfood powder), Greek yogurt, and almond milk!

I can’t get enough of pumpkin everything (pumpkin donuts-? Yes, please!) this fall so I am sure that you will be seeing more pumpkin-centric recipes in the days to come!

My Big Announcement: The Spiral Collective!

Hello Darlings!

If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I’ve been (somewhat) secretly promoting The Spiral Collective! Now, after a slight timing setback, we’ve gone live!

What we are:

The Spiral Collective is a Denver based community wellness center that aims to make holistic health accessible to everyone- any age, any demographic. Here at Spiral we believe that community is synonymous with family, so whether you are a Colorado resident or a friend behind a computer screen, we want Spiral to feel like home. If you have a question, need some reassurance, or even a high five, reach out! Our doors (and hearts!) are always open. 

What we do:

From yoga, meditation, and massage, to chats about home remedies, shelves full of handmade wellness kits, and a community library, The Spiral Collective has it all. Kait and Paige, the Spiral co-founders and kindred spirits, dreamed up a space that would connect the community through mindfulness and act as a haven-a second home- for those who want to take a breath, spread some joy, or snuggle a puppy. 

Where you come in: Indiegogo!

We invite you to become part of the Spiral family. Donate what you can here (I happen to be partial to the downloadable yoga and meditation classes as rewards!) and share this project with your friends, your co-workers, even your grandmother. We are asking for twenty-five thousand dollars, to renovate, buy yoga tools, and create Spiral Online- which we want you to be a part of! Every family needs a home, and we need your help to create one we all can share.

I am SO excited to share The Spiral Collective with you! It has been a dream of mine to open a healing space, and I couldn’t have found a better business partner or community with which to share our space!

Please donate what you can, and share with everyone you know!
