Meatless Monday: Roasted Chickpeas

Since doing the Whole30 (and failing at it—my body panicked and my doctor took me off of it early) last spring, I’ve been in a constant search for easy snacks that also don’t cost a ton. Add into that equation that I can’t have gluten (and GF crackers are EXPENSIVE) or sugar (rules out my go-to apple and nut butter), plus that I get a little sick of just eating raw veggies when I need something crunchy, and I’m in a conundrum. Then,... Read More

Product Review: Tabitha James Kraan Organic Dry Shampoo, Hair Oil and Hair Perfume

I’ve always been picky. Picky about my food, picky about cleanliness, picky about how things are organized, picky about my lip balm. There was span of three years when I refused to wear jeans because they were too “crunchy” (my firework-embellished leggings got a lot of playing time in second grade).

Product Review: INIKA Eyeshadow, a Vegan Dupe for Living Luminizer

My newfound need for beeswax-free (or vegan) cosmetics left a major hole in my makeup routine when I discovered that RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer was the beeswax-full culprit for tiny whiteheads on the inner corners of my eyes and below my eyebrows.

Then I was introduced to INIKA Cosmetics... Read More

A Superfood Dessert You And Your Skin Will Love

Once upon a time I was almost exclusively a savory gal. But these days I have a full-blown sweet tooth, and one thing I love to order if I see it on the menu is a little French number called Pot de Crème. Have you tried it? So good. Like ice cream that hasn’t been frozen, but instead whipped into delicious chocolate submission. I’ve never made it but I know that it’s filled with the usual dessert suspects like cream, egg yolks, and lots of... Read More

Could You Be Vegan Before 6?

If Meatless Monday is a baby step, Mark Bittman’s vegan before 6 philosophy might feel more like a leap. I thought I’d take a break from usual MM fare today to discuss this. Are you familiar with Bittman? He was the New York Times food critic when—after years of eating to his heart’s desire—his doctor told him his heart and the rest of him might be in trouble for it. Bittman was 35 pounds overweight, had sleep apnea, high cholesterol,... Read More
