I always knew there was something different about my mom's soup. This wasn't a constant in our diet, but it stuck out mostly during my high school and college days. No matter what the main ingredients in her soup were, mung beans for Ayurvedic cleansing or mushrooms and lentils because those were the only things … Continue reading Bones, Broth, & the Basics
Last weekend, I headed out to Kendall's Blueberries to pick as many as I could! It is nearing the end of the season and I wanted to score some fresh, chemical-free, and affordable berries for the upcoming winter!

I had a great cleansing experience - but due to the stress of life, I've been needing a little boost of caffeine this whole week. Maybe it has been the rainy weather...or the late nights...or the anticipation for graduation … Continue reading Trail Mix, Coffee, & Quality
Well, today is Day 17 of my spring cleanse and I'm feeling much better! Last week, I had a case of the sniffles...and congestion, and well...it sucked.
