I don’t know if I’ve stated this explicitly, but if you happen to read any of the past 10 blog posts here you can probably tell I’m a little obsessed with sustainability. Actually, it’s a shared interest in sustainability that drew me to PTYD- I met one of the owners, Heather,...

With Thanksgiving coming up I wanted to share a story about one of my biggest health struggles to date. I never thought I’d be free of it at the time, and I’m still surprised at  how much that experience continues to teach me. Here goes!

In 2013 I was working as a cook at an Aus...

I'm someone who enjoys meat and fish on a regular basis as well as occasional eggs and dairy (aka “animal food”). I notice I feel better with high-quality animal food in my diet. That said, over the last year I’ve been cutting back in an on-going experiment to see how much is...

Here’s the short list of questions to get the conversation going next time you visit your local farmers market! But first, a quick breakdown on the Austin farmer’s market scene for the newly initiated.

Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend the yearly conference for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. The 2019 theme was Transforming Health. Last week I condensed Day 1. Here are my main takeaways from Day 2, along with links to do your own personal research projec...

I can’t help but notice lately how my opinion of the word convenient has gone downhill. It always sounds enticing, but the question that inevitably comes up is: at what cost? There’s a shadow following that word around. I still want it, but I don’t really want anyone to know, a...

It’s my guess you’ve heard this before: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates may be the Father of Western Medicine, but never in history has allopathic medicine strayed farther from this principle. In fact the majority of MDs today have zero training...

I’m so excited to have tried Prep to Your Door this week! I got to try five inventive and delicious dishes that I would have been impressed by EVEN IF they weren’t locally-sourced, vegan and served in spiffy eco-friendly mason jars. Since they were, I am particularly impressed...

Shopping is a lot like voting: you walk through the aisles of a store, sort through the different candidates, and finally select the ones you want to purchase. You stand in line at the register, and finally cast your votes with every item you buy. If only your receipt were an “...

Did you know that every piece of plastic ever made still exists? 

That's right, it takes close to 500 years for plastic to decompose. That means the 8.3 BILLION tons of plastic humans have made, used, and thrown away is still rotting away somewhere on planet Earth....

This is easily one of our favorite plant-based breakfasts to meal prep. It's creamy, delicious, and SO EASY TO MAKE!
