summer stone fruit caprese salad

Stone fruit season is my favorite!  (Stone fruits = peaches, plums, nectarines, cherries, apricots, etc…) You can make this salad with any stone fruit. Really. But I love a tart plum and a sweet peach because they contrast each other beautifully. Serves 4 Ingredients 3 nectarines or peaches, sliced 4 plums, sliced 1 container baby tomatoes,…

healing thyroid tea + dr. g

Another favorite at The Source, this healing thyroid tea has been selling like crazy. It’s really simple, and super healing for the thyroid and liver.  I want to introduce you to my friend Christian Gonzalez, ND, (also known as Dr. G), who calls this tea “an ultimate concoction to support our thyroid.” Dr. G and…

raw coconut oat milk

This new vegan milk has become a fast favorite at The Source.  We’re used to seeing nut milks in place of dairy milks. But what if you’re allergic to nuts and not into soy? Enter oat milk. (If you want pure oat milk, use 1/2 cup oats and take out the coconut flakes.) I love…

paleo almond bread

I love this paleo almond bread because I can pack extra protein in it, and it’s super easy to grab on the go. I load mine up with extra collagen, and I actually freeze it and then take it with me when I travel cross country. It’s super easy to make – just put everything…

stress awareness

April is Stress Awareness Month. Since it’s so easy for me to let my stress get out of balance, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to look at how I’ve been living, and share some of my insights with you. Some of the questions I asked myself are: Am I still living my…

stuffed mushrooms

I always know I’ve created something extraordinarily lovable when I see unusual behavior around the food.  Like when all of the meat-eating men at a party can’t stop eating the vegan tapa! That’s what happened with these stuffed mushrooms. I love these because they’re tasty, filling, and they have that meaty mouth feel.  Of course…

cauliflower ice cream

I love this ice cream because it’s all veggies and no fruit… and because I love tahini. It might seem weird to put tahini in your ice cream, but believe me, you’re gonna love it.  I love to stir in the blue majik at the end, and then top it with cacao nibs, seeds, coconut,…

It’s never too late for self love.

I meant to post this yesterday, but it was a busy day at The Source, and the truth is that it’s never too late for self love. Whether you are still basking in the energy of love that was so present yesterday, or you’re glad to be past Valentine’s day,  you can treat yourself to…

super meals to keep you nourished

It’s holiday season and you probably have lots of parties to attend. Of course it’s always fun to be festive, and you always want to be polite and eat the food that is served to you – – but how do you maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit when you’re not in charge of…

Some more tips to stay healthy during the holidays

I’m adding 5 more to last year’s list… Charcoal Before Parties – See my post on activated charcoal here. Before going to a holiday party, I take some activated charcoal to help my body deal with any toxins I might be ingesting. Liquid Dinner Before Intermittent Fasting – You might remember that last year I posted about…

happy 5 years!

Today is the 5 year anniversary of the opening of The Source Cafe. (Scroll to the bottom for our anniversary gift!) It’s one of those days where you look back, and on the one hand, it feels like yesterday, and where did the time go? And on the other hand, so much has happened in…

peppermint cacao fudge

Our Healthy Holidays Class on Thursday was so much fun. I love when people are happy to learn my non-traditional holiday recipes, and when they ask me tons of questions. We ended with this peppermint cacao fudge, and it’s safe to say we had a class full of happy eaters! (This delicious fudge is paleo,…
