Noodle Me!

Noodles make me happy! For years they've been either a go-to quick, simple meal or as elaborate and multi-layered a meal as my imagination can dream and my kitchen ingredients can provide.  

There are as many different kinds of noodles as there are stars in the sky, I'm pretty sure!  They run the gamut of shape, size, texture, flavor, nutritional value and cooking time, but I have yet to run across one that I don't fall deeply in love with and immediately daydream about our future together and …

As we embark on our delightful and delicious journey of joyful health and wild plant adventures together, I hope you’ll consider incorporating Meatless Monday into your week.

Really any day is fine, but I always enjoyed the levity and reset after a (sometimes overindulgent) weekend. It’s one self-care day to eat lighter, healthier, and cheaper! If this concept has not hit your radar yet, now is your time to dive in, and be adventurous! Embrace the opportunity to challenge yourself and give some…

Love Between Bread

When I fly, I’m always psyched up about the cool and unusual (although expensive!) foods I may find in airports. Airport food, I get it, but it’s come a long way! I love the adventure of being in different cities and exploring new on-the-go offerings. I get as excited about the foods I find in airports as I get about flying somewhere fun and finding a bar close to the gate! It’s like living in a parallel universe and I always feel wildly unencumbered!

I still remember Jerry Seinfeld talking abo…

Our gorgeous brains are designed for memory, learning and stimulation so give that grey matter what it’s craving! Nothing keeps you young and joyful like learning new things and embracing the eternal student in you.

There is no shortage of amazing ideas for learning fun, creative things both online or in-person; collage or painting; board games or puzzles, like crosswords or Soduko, joining a ceramics or cooking class, trying kayaking or skiing, learning a new language or taking a college cours…

Keep It Moving!

You may have heard the phrase “sitting is the new smoking” and I can’t agree more.

Ten minutes a day can start things off in the right direction and once you’re up and out of that chair, off that couch, or out of your cozy bed, it’s even easier to keep going!

If you have a dog, you know how a walk can improve their mood, as well as your own, and if you have a dog like mine, they don’t let you off the hook!

Get outdoors and observe the incredible sites that are all around you! I’ve been equal…

Drink up!

Yes, you may have heard, water is good for you. No, it’s GREAT for you and is the foundation that your body is built on, so drink up, please!

Sounds too simple, I know, but to keep our organs functioning, toxins moving out, blood pressure and cholesterol down, skin soft, hydrated, and youthful, bloating at bay (which sounds counterintuitive), and literally keep you alive, your body craves adequate hydration!

Drink a whole glass straight away first thing in the morning to get the party started …
