Turkey Quinoa Spinach Soup

Well, that nice weather was fun while it lasted! We went from almost 70 degrees on a few days and running around the backyard in t-shirts to very blustery, windy weather here in Upstate New York. I definitely have that one-foot out the door of winter feeling, but the weather is just hanging onto those frigid temperatures so its still very much soup weather. With healthy dinners in full swing, this Turkey Quinoa Spinach Soup is a home run. It’s paleo and Arbonne detox friendly. Best of all, it actually fills you up!  When it comes to healthy dinners,...

Mixed Berry Coconut Acai Bowl

I’ve been looking in all our local supermarkets for Acai packets, which come in the freezer section. They are small pouches with Acai (pronounced aaaah – SIGH – EE), which is a small berry that people call a superfood. Right now, there’s not a ton of conclusive research on its health benefits, but according to the Mayo Clinic, it does have the highest amount of antioxidants over any commonly-eaten berry so still really great!  I’m always looking for a delicious, healthy breakfast and this recipe doesn’t disappoint. It also doesn’t hurt that its really pretty as well. Acai bowls...

I’m just sharing these because I actually love it myself and want to tell you guys about it. So let’s get started! Beautycounter With my recently health transition, I’ve even started thinking about products we’re using in our house and if they’re safe. My friend Meghan sells Beautycounter and recently lent me a ton of their products. I got to try their skin care routine, the kid’s products for the girls and a bunch of...

48 hours in San Francisco

I just got back from a very quick 48 hours on the west coast in San Francisco. It was a whirlwind of work (some video shoots for Union) mixed with some fun side trips downtown.  When I booked the trip, I was super excited for some northern California weather – mainly sunshine and moderate temperatures. Things didn’t go as expected though and it literally rained almost the entire time I was there. And not even like light, misting rain – more like monsooning, hard rain. It definitely made for an interesting time, and I’ll never leave home without a rain...
