Come Together

93 yogis came together this past Saturday and raised over $600 for Humane Society of Charlotte. In my two short years of being an entrepreneur, I’m quickly learning that you truly have no idea what the turnout for an event will be like until it happens. And when you factor…

5 Ways to Survive (+ Enjoy!) Candy Season

This time of year presents a great opportunity to wipe the slate clean, make some changes, set new goals, up the ante on the workouts, and recommit to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. You might be thinking: Halloween is on the horizon. This is the hardest time of year. Holidays…

MVP Quiche + Random Kitchen Tips

Savory Spice Shop recently invited me to be their guest chef for a Back to School cooking demonstration. Whenever I do one of these, I always like to remind my audience that I am a Registered Dietitian by occupation, and self-proclaimed chef taught mostly by…the internet. Plain and simple: my cooking…

Spicy Rosemary + Maple Crunch

I often hear that baking granola is easy. But I disagree.

Breaking Down the Pose

Forward folds are underrated. They often are woven into the beginning of a yoga class as a warm-up to gently, gradually relieve tension in the body, specifically the shoulders, neck, lower back, hamstrings, hips and calf muscles. Forward folds are also great for mindfully strengthening the thighs, knees, lower back…

Mini Coconut Macaroon Cups

Easter candy smacks you in the face every time you walk into the grocery store, so shouldn’t we create a nice place for it to live before we shovel it in by the handfuls? Call it an excuse to buy the candy, but I’m calling it arts and crafts meets…
