Spicy Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers with avocado-cilantro crema + sprouts

Hello Monday. Hello delicious little veggie burgers that I want to devour.

I’m currently on a juice cleanse. I’ve done one before, so it’s not really a shock to my system. However staring at pictures of these burgers is making me so hungry. GIVE ME DAT BURGA. With a side of sweet potato fries and half of cup of sriracha please.

NOM.

But for reals, veggie burgers are totally my jam. I love em! They’re so much more delicious than those creepy burgers packed with soy and foreign ingredients. I already have a sweet potato chickpea burger and a lentil burger that you should try!

These burgers are the real thing: spicy, sweet, fresh, totally bomb little love bites in your mouth.

I am quite descriptive today. Probs because I’m on mission to bring you deliciousness. HEY ooooooo.

FYI: Proper grammar doesn’t count in today’s post. Like it ever matters here anyway.

Grilled Chili-Lime Fish Tacos with Sour Cream Cabbage Slaw + Mango & Avocado

I think one of the most important things in any relationship is finding someone who can make you laugh. Or who you can laugh along with. I’m a HUGE goofball (and pretty weird), so finding someone that understands my sense of humor is essential.

Oh, I think I forgot to tell you guys I am dating. Not serious marriage dating, just having fun and searching for that little bit of laughter in my life. Good, right? Well obviously for whoever I date it’s good. I mean, what kind of guy can resist freshly baked cookies and mexican food for dinner?

There are reasons I can’t go around cooking for all of my dates — food is a serious attachment. That’s why I only bake the life-changing cookies when I REALLY like someone. Because after those cookies, there is no turning back.

Anyway I’ll keep you posted on all of that… as if you care. But let’s pretend you do, because frankly I can’t just talk about tacos all day.

OH WAIT, yes I can…

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my yoga tweets lately (#akyogachallenge). I’m falling in love with my practice and it feels absolutely incredible.

Now what’s funny is that I’m the type of person who NEEDS intensity from a workout. Usually kickboxing and running tend to be my favorites because I love the ‘high’, uplifting feeling that comes from those cardio endorphins. What’s unusual is that I’ve found that I get the same feeling from my yoga practice, except I don’t have to run 8 miles to feel like I accomplished something. As soon as I step onto my mat, I let my stress go and focus my energy on breathing and thinking positively.

Most of all, yoga is slowly teaching me to appreciate the beauty within myself. It seems that we’re all searching for something, whether it be a change in our lives, bodies, or our hearts; however, before any change can happen we have to learn to accept ourselves from within. For me this yoga challenge is about so much more than just being fit.

Summer Berry Crostini with Lemon Ricotta & Honey

July is officially here! I booked a flight for a fun adventure. I have two jobs I love. Plus, I made you truffles, cookies, tacos, and this easy & fun Summer berry crostini.

I’m also currently obsessing over zucchini and have way too many ideas in my head; I literally had to force myself out of the grocery store after three hours of pacing the aisles. Pretty typical.

Besides being a grocery store stalker, I was quite busy this past weekend. The majority of my Friday was spent working then I caught a movie and stayed up until my eyes felt like heavy bricks. Saturday went by too quick; I hit a yoga class in the morning, did some editorial planning for the blog, and watched an episode of Cats from Hell. NOT KIDDING. I love cats.

I had a little ‘me’ time yesterday though and spent most of my day in the kitchen. I’m trying to get caught up on recipe creation so that I can take a little vacation over the weekend and relax. My wonderful mom also stopped over to show me her StitchFix collection (I got her hooked!). We haven’t seen each other in nearly two weeks so it was good to catch up. It’s important to remember you can never be too busy for your family. However, you can be too busy for when your mom tells you about how much she loves Jeremy Piven.
