I’m always an advocate for balance. I have been through the wringer with a variety of diets (you can read about my weight loss story here) but the only thing that has actually kept my mind in a good place with food but has kept the weight off was removing this pendulum shift of going to extremes in my...

Cranberry Walnut Vegan Cheeseball

I’m climbing out of this miserable stomach bug that had me down for almost a week. I traveled to Denver and got so sick during my stay that I wouldn’t even want my worst enemy to experience what I went through. I cannot recall ever feeling like that. Ever. Coming out of it, there are now a...
