Clean Eating

Meet me in the kitchen for nourishing recipes inspired by my travels around the world.

Caribbean Jungle Curry

  “It’s all food!” Ana exclaims as we overlook the acres of forest that surrounds us.     Chickens cluck at our feet and the farm dog chases them back into their coops. We walk paths lined with berry-adorned katuk, a green even more nutritiously dense than spinach,...

Raw Cacao Truffles of the Gods

  What are your associations with chocolate? Decadence? Sin? Indulgence? Guilt? What about euphoria? Sacredness? Vitality? Health?   Living in the South Caribbean of Costa Rica I learned quickly that chocolate has the ability to elicit intense responses.     The yoga...

Coconut Snapper Cabbage Cups

  I've been back in the states for less than a week and I'm suffering from coconut withdrawal. Hard. Sure I've kept myself slathered in coco oil, eaten spoonfuls of coco cream, and I may have paid five dollars for a bottle of raw coconut water...sshhhhh don't tell......

Healthy Coconut Pancakes

    Right now I'm pretty hungry. Starving actually. Literally. Remind me why I'm doing this coconut water fast again? Oh right, you can't. You think I'm crazy too.   For now, let's salivate together over these super healthy super yummy coconut pancakes I made last...

What to Do With a Coconut

  “I saw them do this once on Lost,” I reassured my best friend Andie as I smacked a large brown coconut repeatedly against the coral reef.     One year and a half ago away from my clean, cultivated, contained city life deep in the Caribbean jungle for the first time...

Patacones with Heart of Palm Ceviche

  I can recall precisely the moment I fell in love with heart of palm, or palmito as they say here in Costa Rica.   I was ten years old at my Mom's best friend's house and she served us a big salad with butter lettuce, shaved heart of palm, and avocado all dressed up...

Lick the Bowl Black Beans

  As the daughter of two vegetarian hippies turned grownups who met at a progressive permaculture in the sixties, my diet growing up was hardly all American.   I’ll never forget the many times my father introduced me to international foods during our ritual Sunday...

Tropical Rainbow Slaw

    Sorry I have been so absent lately.   My energy, my mind, and my body, have been dedicated to fighting off an infection, recovering from sun exhaustion, battling a stomach parasite, trying, failing, then trying again to let go of someone from my past, and making a...

Good Morning Breakfast Bowl

    Two days ago was my mother's birthday. It reminded me of how much I miss home.   Somehow each time I leave it gets a little harder. In fact, one year ago when I first left for Costa Rica, I really didn't miss anyone... at all. Perhaps I was so ready for this...

Healthy Vegetarian Cobb Salad

  In the past I’ve let you all know just how much I love food. My passion for savoring each mouthful is something I was simply born with. For me, cooking is an integral component to food adoration and appreciation, and has always been a part of my life. Likely due to...
