Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend?

This was our first full weekend back home after our honeymoon and we had plenty of catching up to do including piles of laundry, grocery shopping and baking two loaves of bread. We finally watched the movie La La Land, which I found adorable. Have you seen it?

Saturday and Sunday were fantastic, relaxing and food of good food (both Mexican and Thai!). We also hung out with friends, watched The Office on Netflix and cooked a few delicious meals out of the HGG Reset (are you guys doing it yet?!).

Sweet & savory 30-minute Moroccan chickpea quinoa salad made in one pot. Delicious flavors and the perfect vegetarian meal to prep for lunch!

Yesterday Abra and I went to Studio Three and did their Ellie Goulding & Lana Del Rey themed cycling class. It was the first time I had hit the gym in nearly a month (except for that one time I had 10 mins and did 50 squats + lunges in Australia and couldn’t walk for days after).

Anyway, I can’t tell you just how good it felt to get moving again, even if it was 45 minutes. It made my day that much better.

Delicious black bean enchiladas made with savory butternut squash and an incredible, homemade enchilada sauce. These are drizzled to perfection with an addicting, vegan jalapeño cashew crema!

Hello hello! I’m backkkk from beautiful Kauai. I’m feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and most of all back to feeling a little more like myself.

It’s true: 2017 was a challenging year for me. We got engaged AND planned a wedding in less than 9 months. I also helped to launch my other business Healthy Glow Co, hired Abra, expanded AK with more recipes, got into more video and was overall very overworked. It was a year of growth, personal challenges and change. Just because things get bigger, doesn’t necessarily means it’s glorious and wonderful 100% of the time.

But the more you go through the more you grow, and I’m happy to still be here, chugging along and sharing my wellness journey + recipes with you. Most of all, I’m committed to getting back to staying true to me and what AK represents: a place to inspire you in and out of the kitchen.

Happy holidays friends! Currently I’m on my honeymoon in one of my favorite places on earth: Australia! We left on the 16th and arrive on the morning of the 18th in Sydney. LONGEST FLIGHT EVER but worth it.

Our travel plans consist of Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Daintree rainforest, wineries, Byron Bay and a few other stops along the way — we certainly have an amazing two week itinerary here before we leave for Hawaii for another week. We’re thrilled to be able to spend this time together as newlyweds and I can’t wait to share all of the details with you. And of course, all of our wedding photos!
