What Can I Do About the Wildfires?

I have to admit, I am beginning to feel a little like a broken record. Last year at this time, we were concerned about the Amazon rainforest fires. In January, we were hit again with the tragedy unfolding in Australia and the wildfires devastating the country. And now, with wildfires devastating the state of California and poor air quality crossing international lines, we find ourselves asking, one more time, “What can I do about the wildfires?”.

How to Eat Challenge- Week 2

Honestly, I thought I’d be writing a lot more about How to Eat, but this week has shown me how exhaustingly busy I make myself. Ideas for blog posts get pushed to the back-burner and I feel I’m constantly short on time while overwhelmed with material and things to do. But none of that really has much to do with the How to Eat Challenge, or how Week 2 went…

Eating Green During the Apocalypse

As our country slowly (and hopefully not prematurely) opens, this ZooFit tip may seem a little late to the party. Eating Green during the Apocalypse? Wasn’t that, like, last month? Restaurants are preparing to invite guests back, but there are many people who still find themselves eating at home. They have been thrust in a quest they never thought they would embark on. Cooking. At home.

Meatless Memorial Day

Monday is Memorial Day. It’s a day to celebrate and honor our heroes by firing up the grill and eating burgers until we burst. But Monday is also, well, Monday.

We want to eat healthier for ourselves and more sustainable for the planet. Meatless Mondays makes it easy to remember to do our part of eating just a little less meat. But Memorial Day is definitely a grilling holiday.

Recipe of the Week: Rustic Almond Flour Loaf

Being stuck at home with nothing else to do except write, create videos, and cook has led to long creative hours. Today, I played with an oldie but goodie recipe, my Rustic Almond Flour Loaf. I played with it because my husband and I are on the fence with eggs. They are a terrific source of protein, but sometimes they don’t sit well with either of us. So, I wanted to see if I could still make some of my normal recipes using alternative ingredients. Read More “Recipe of the Week: Rustic Almond Flour Loaf”

Recipe of the Week: Red Pepper Pesto Pasta

I had a little fun this week learning how to EDIT VIDEOS and even add text to them! OOOOOOHHH! A whole new world has opened up for me!

So, I’m starting yet ANOTHER fun new project that I hope continues and I grow in developing- Small Kitchen, Great Meal. This was really just a tester video, but I’m actually pretty happy with it, to be honest. Read More “Recipe of the Week: Red Pepper Pesto Pasta”

Playing with Your Food

Yesterday I had an epiphany.  How many times do you go to fix a meal only to discover you have all the “wrong” ingredients, or not enough of the “right” ingredients?

Now, normally, we wouldn’t think twice about popping back to the store to grab what we really need. But right now with most cities and regions cracking down on leaving your home except to walk your dog outside or essentials, this issue may create a problem.
