That’s going to be a completely different post. I don’t have enough time or enough space in this post to cram in all of those feelings–because there’s lots and lots of feelings. They’re those deep feelings that come with spurts of ugly crys and a sinking sensation in one’s chest. I’m not ready to go.
My life has been a whirlwind of moving boxes and Goodwill donations (why the heck was I hanging onto that pair of distressed stretchy lace-up denim from high school? Bye bye. I hope you fulfill your denim destiny on some other misguided tween). In a final push of not wanting to do a big grocery shop right before we have to depart from here, my food life has been weird. It’s been handfuls of granola and apples dipped in peanut butter. There’s been store bought seaweed salad, green smoothies from Whole Foods and take out from Chipotle… not to mention that entire gluten-free pizza I stress-guzzled over the weekend. It’s all a big mess. So, I’m posting this green drink because this is what would be good for me. I could hide in one of the larger moving boxes, sip on some veggie-laced lemonade and gently weep. Sound like a good Tuesday? Ugh. I should stop talking.
Today is totally your lucky day. My dear friend Beth of Tasty Yummies is hanging out with us and sharing this bonkers looking dessert. Words cannot describe how much I love this girl or the food that she makes. Seriously. It’s too big. But, if I had to pick one emoji to help you understand, it would be the tap dancing twins. You know the one. Simpatico. Please enjoy this beautiful dessert and getting to know one of my favorite gals on the interweb!! Take it away lady-cat…
Hey everyone, it’s Beth here, visiting from over in my corner of the internet, Tasty Yummies. Tasty Yummies is where I have been blogging for 4 years now, sharing my healthy gluten-free recipes – all created with the intent to nourish both your body and soul. Outside of being gluten-free, I don’t have any other labels on my diet. Sure, much of what I eat is plant-based, but I am not vegan! And yes, many of my recipes are grain-free and would totally be paleo appropriate, but a cave woman, I am not! Generally, I just opt for eating fresh seasonal, whole foods that make me happy, are nutrient-dense and yummy, to boot. Continue reading →
I’d like to write an open letter to California Weather. Here goes nothing…
Dearest California Weather,
I am confused. Please, help me understand.
I’m sure you get a lot of letters. In fact, most of them are probably thank you letters. You’re not a terrible state to live in. I realize we’re spoiled. Strawberries are in season. I should probably just shut my face now, right? Oh, well. Continue reading →
Cookie dough: quite possibly one of the most tempting foods to ever grace this earth. I mean, amiright?
I’m over on The Kitchn this week and we’re talking siren songs, lame metabolic changes, Dawson’s Creek (couldn’t help myself) , and how I made cookie dough into a legitimate snack food. I also give you the secret to pigging out on cookie dough the healthy way with a recipe for these here raw bites. That’s right. They’re vegan, gluten-free and totally raw. I mean… let’s do this.

My work from home lifestyle is great on so many levels, but I find that it’s SO easy to forget to eat lunch. This isn’t good. Hanger isn’t cute, especially my hanger. It’s usually outfitted with a scowl and tears. This is not the face that my husband likes to come home to. Ol’ Scowly Tears. No. I do not like that nickname. Let’s prevent that from becoming a thing.
