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.

Stuffed acorn squash with cranberry, pecans and quinoa then drizzled with a simple goat cheese crema. Perfect for vegetarians at Thanksgiving, or anytime you’re looking for a healthy plant based meal or side.

Here we are again! Thanksgiving is getting close and I’m more than ready to bust out all the fabulous recipes I’ve been testing in my kitchen over the last few weeks. Safe to say Abra and I have been eating very, very well.

To me, Thanksgiving can involve your Grandma’s classic recipes but it can also be about experimenting with new recipes and creating your own traditions. Since coming into Tony’s family, I’ve introduced my both my cranberry sauce and sweet potato casserole to the table and now each year we’re sure not to miss it.

I’m even more excited about the recipes I’m going to post this week and next because they are creative, beautiful and healthy. YASSS.

Mom’s authentic Puerto Rican Rice and Beans with savory homemade sofrito and sazon! You’ll love this incredibly flavorful, comforting homemade meal that will fill your home with unbelievably delicious smells. The perfect recipe to serve a crowd or just savor leftovers for a few days!

OHHHH hi! I’ve been teasing this beautiful recipe for a while now on Instagram stories and I couldn’t be more excited to finally share one of my favorite comfort foods in the entire world: my mom’s Puerto Rican Rice and Beans.

As many of you know, my mom is full Puerto Rican, as are my grandparents. My childhood dinner’s were often full of hispanic cuisine — often empanadas, rice and beans, tostones, pazole and ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE. More recently, I’ve connected with recipes that are from my heritage and started cooking from the soul again. Personally, it feels incredibly rewarding when Puerto Rican soul food fills my home with it’s intoxicating, aromatic spices.

And even if you aren’t Puerto Rican, why not try something new?! We could all use a good dose of global inspired creativity and cooking in our lives. These rice and beans are the perfect way to start.
