FLORA EX MACHINA

The moment you open up a jar of ghee, you’ll notice that it’s quite different than ordinary butter. It has a slightly different look to it — as well as a slightly different aroma, a different flavor, and (though you may not be able to perceive with your senses) a different nutritional profile. Butter is […]

The optimal Fall cleanse does not look like you think it should.  In fact, in my personal and professional opinion, it shouldn’t. With more and more noise in the wellness space, it’s getting harder to understand what is helping to build up our health sustainably vs. simply a band-aid approach.  When it comes to cleansing […]

Akashic Records

The “Akasha” or life force is a chronicle of all past, present and future events since our first existence. Used as a life tool, we are able to access this energy and a person’s guides to understand and work through deep-rooted trauma, to heal, to understand our soul’s purpose, to find support to life’s most complex questions, or simply to understand where we came from and how best to live out this life to the fullest.

What you see isn’t always what you get. The holidays are always a mixed bag for me.

My mind goes to beautifully decorated tea cakes, flavored with floral essences, and topped with sugar flowers. Each bite is savored, the last bite lingering. Desserts are a special occasion in of themselves – a presentation fit for a queen.

Healthy indulgences may sound a bit like an oxymoron, but why can’t the decadent foods we crave be just as nutritious and crave-worthy? Can’t we have it all? In a world of contradictions and stereotypes, we crave the unknown, complex, and unobtainable while also desiring the simplistic, wholesome, and sustainable. It may be hard to […]

Thanksgiving provides a whole host of expectations, traditions, and of course, family drama, that every holiday season we submit ourselves to willingly or unwillingly. The holidays seem to expose our best and worst selves during a time when our expectations are high and emotions higher. Sharing a meal with family is a revealing experience that […]
