The kitchen is the heart of our dwelling spaces and our yoga practices can take root in the very preparation of a meal. The following offerings of recipes are from my heart to yours and I hope you enjoy them in the best of health.

It has been my aim to create recipes inspired by seasonal foods with omission of dairy, meat, eggs and refined sweeteners. This is not based on a judgement of those ingredients, but simply a reflection of my personal interests and abilities.

Cooking has always been a part of my life and was my first exposure to the heart of yoga. The kitchen was a gathering place and a space to be nourished. My Italian mother and grandparents extensively gardened and delighted in the process of taking something from it’s purist form and shifting it to bring out it’s best qualities was a daily ritual.

I offer my deepest gratitude to my family for exposing me to the passion and integrity of whole foods cooking in this collection of recipes. As my Mom would say, Mangia!

Mermaid Food

It's exhausting trying to get nutrition into my kids that are out in the world, exposed to snacks from big box stores they've never seen now that full-day kindergarten is in session. All it took was a simple name game to get back into a rhythm of asking for homemade snacks. They might not come in a bright package but the name "mermaid food" got them hooked. Better for you and the environment, here's a snack with energy and flavor!

Pumpkin Puffed Millet Granola

Homemade granola is a cinch to make. Highlighted here is a superfood blend of hemp seeds, raw pepitas and flax seeds with extra cinnamon pumpkin spice. Enjoy by the handful, over Greek yogurt or your favorite vegan version, add some crunch to your coconut ice cream or even over chopped bananas. It's a hit in our home with our toddler. Since some of the chunks are big depending on the size of your layering when you bake them, you might get some nugget sized ones perfect for little hands.
