sunday morning, no. 6

Happy Sunday/Monday friends! Thank you for stopping by for the sixth post in my weekly Sunday Morning series where I share links, recipes, and thoughts from the past week. 

I spent this past week in NYC for work visiting my team up there, meeting with clients, and catching up with friends. It was definitely a good time. We ate, drank, talked, and ate some more. Such a good feeling being surrounded by people who encourage you to be your best self and accomplish your goals and dreams. I'm back in Athens feeling refreshed and excited.

sunday morning, no. 3

Happy Sunday friends! Thank you for stopping by for the third post in my weekly Sunday Morning series where I share links, recipes, and thoughts from the past week. 

This past week very similar to last: working in Atlanta, reading cookbooks, writing, working some more, watching tutorial videos on frosting buttercream cakes and testing out four different versions of vanilla cake with citrus buttercream and lemon curd! We still have cake in our fridge left over after many many taste tests. Please, someone, take it away.

why i stopped drinking coffee

I started drinking coffee at approximately 16 and never stopped. Three months before I turned 23, I was experiencing a whole slew of digestive autoimmune symptoms and after hours of research, reading, and sorting through functional medicine approaches, I landed on a strict elimination program that would help reset my body, digestion, hormones, mood, and overall wellbeing. The real kicker? No coffee.

hearty root vegetable soup

So this week, I've been on a little bit of a soup kick. As in, I've made so many different types of vegetable soup that I can't even keep track. But I wanted to share the best of the best, so here we are - a hearty, easy, and quick dinner that's healthy and focused on IN SEASON vegetables, which is so important to your health and the quality of the vegetables. 

Lately, I've been testing different bouillons as bases for my soups and have loved the bouillons by BOU. You know how traditional bouillon is a thick paste? BOU found a way around that and created a cube that packs all of the flavor without any of the unhealthy additives. It has 30% less salt, no artificial ingredients, it's non-GMO and gluten free (what more could you ask for?).
