Healthy chicken pot pie — made with  a comforting homemade whole grain flaky crust and an amazing sauce made with almond milk & chicken broth instead of butter and cream!

When you’re going all the time, sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath and take in the beautiful things surrounding you. And my oh my, there are so many wonderful things to appreciate. People, different cultures, talents, successes (others and my own), the changing seasons, a comfortable bed to sleep in, the unconditional love I feel for my fiancé.

The world is changing. Right before our eyes. And at an epic speed that sometimes feels out of control and helpless. Read more.

Have you guys been to my friend Liz’s site yet? She’s a mama of two who blogs about healthy authentic food with global flavors. I freaking love her because she’s the real deal in every way; Liz tells it how it is and keeps herself authentic and real. We’ve been friends for years and every single time we’re together we giggle over the most ridiculous things (including that one time she had someone deliver Buffalo Wild Wings to my hotel room).

Golden Turmeric Chicken Soup with chickpeas and sweet potatoes will be your go-to winter soup! Flavored with ginger, garlic, coconut milk and a touch of peanut butter. 381 calories & 33g protein per serving!

Brrrrrrrrr. Is the polar vortex back or something because this weather isn’t jiving with my soul. I’m writing to you bundled up like I’m going into the arctic: I’ve got on Tony’s oversized Nike sweatpants, fluffy warm socks and a shirt that doesn’t match anything.

The upside? I reheated a big bowl of this warm turmeric chickpea chicken soup and it’s fantastic as ever, even on the third day.

Slow Cooker Taco Lentil Soup that’s both vegan and gluten free. You’ll love this easy meal packed with plant-based protein!

Currently writing to you from Detroit! I’ve been here since Friday hanging with my bestie Sarah while we bake, photograph, shop, drink Kombucha beer and jam out to Christmas music. I leave later today to get back into the groove of being at home for a while, working and recovering from turkey overload.

’Tis the season for Mariah Carey Christmas music on repeat while I sit in my pajamas and refuse to leave the house (besides grocery shopping and hitting up the gym).

The BEST flourless Black Bean Brownies made with heart-healthy avocado and wholesome, real ingredients. Absolutely delicious!

A little update from me: I haven’t been able to give the blog the love it deserves. You may have noticed that I’ve been taking time off from doing my Friday Favorites because we’re launching a new healthy living website that’s been taking up most of my time. To top it all off  I’ve been testing cookies for 4 days straight in preparation for an upcoming cookie week. YOU GUYS ARE GONNA FREAKING LOVE IT.
