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 Heather, one of the owners, w...

With Thanksgiving coming up I wanted to share a story about one of my biggest health struggles to date.

At the time I thought I'd be sick forever. Now I’m stunned at how much this experience has and continues to teach me.

Here goes!

In 2013 I was working as a Cook in Austin...

Everyone’s taste buds change and evolve over time.

We tend to desire the foods we have a history of eating. This is why it can be so hard to kick old eating habits or cut out the junk food we were raised on.

You’ve heard the expression- such & such “is an acquired taste.”

This...

Because I've noticed I feel better with meat and fish in my diet I'm someone who enjoys animal food on a regular basis as well as occasional eggs and dairy.

That said, over the last year I’ve been cutting back in an on-going experiment to see how much is just right <3.

Maybe you’...

 First, a quick breakdown on the Austin farmer’s market scene for the newly initiated :-)

There are multiple markets spanning North and South Austin throughout the week on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays, so it’s easy to find one near you. 

There are 3 main groups that organize...

Last week I condensed Day 1 of the 2019 IIN Transform Health Conference.

Here are the speakers from Day 2, along with links to do your own personal research project :-P

Lissa Rankin

Describes herself as more of a mystic than an MD. Working with patients who experience spontaneou...

Last weekend at the 2019 conference for the Institute for Integrative Nutrition I was lucky enough to witness amazing, cutting-edge speakers in areas pertaining to all aspects of health.

The 2019 theme was Transforming Health. I want to connect you to t...

If you’re like me you’re finding that health is more like a practice than something you achieve overnight.

You might make a routine and feel like you’re nailing it one week.

 Then the next week you’re scrambling to maintain your good habits, taking a vacation from them, or findi...

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...

Now you've got dinner nailed down, let me tell you about my #1 takeaway as an alum of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition is a concept called Primary Food.

I’ll start by defining what Primary Food isn't-  it is not actual food!

Actually, in this school of thought, literal f...

This week I got to try five inventive and delicious PTYD dishes that would've impressed me EVEN IF they weren’t locally-sourced, plant-based, gluten-free, and served in spiffy eco-friendly mason jars.

Since they were, I am particularly impressed and want to take a min...

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!
