Dairy Free Raspberry Overnight Muesli Recipe

Busy loves..have you fallen in love with overnight oats yet?! Ever since I have discovered their brilliance, I’m fully hooked. For the uninitiated, making overnight oats requires little more than stirring together a few ingredients then letting them sit in the fridge overnight, and when you wake up in the morning, breakfast is served. No dicing, no blending, and most importantly, no cooking, which is deeply appreciated with the warmer temps creeping in!
I have partnered with @kitehillfoods today to share my dairy-free delish (and oh so pretty) raspberry overnight muesli recipe using their plain unsweetened almond yogurt. The yogurt softens the oats to make them creamy and delicious.

Travel Guide: Exploring St. Louis In 24 Hours

It seems now more than ever that people have the travel bug, including me!!! The need to explore, to experience and to stay in a new exciting location is always just the best! I am noticing people are also wanting to travel to celebrate a special occasion too - whether that’s a birthday or a wedding. That’s exactly what I did for my birthday last year-I desperately just wanted to get away so Lin and I hit the road in our vintage Porsche and took off and did just that. You know I am the biggest sucker for a US road trip with my sweetie. Somewhere in one of my past lives I must have fallen in love en route because I know that is where my heart is happiest. Lin and I have been on countless US road trips ourselves over the years and we typically head west. So this trip I wanted to head east and see some places I had never been before St. Louis is relatively close to Oklahoma allowing for a nice weekend getaway. But we were there for only 24 hours before continuing onto Indianapolis.

An Interview With Alex -Deco Drinks Tulsa

Deco Drinks across from LaFortune Park is something of a local institution. No matter what beverage you order, consider it heaven in a cup. You can find coffee, Matcha, Boba Tea, Chai, and loose leaf teas. I am absolutely obsessed with the beet lattes and the turmeric lattes because they have zero caffeine so they make the perfect mid-day pick me up! I have had to stop drinking so much caffeine after a bit of a health scare that you read about here.

You can also find the best avocado toast in Tulsa!

Travel Guide: Houston Texas And It’s Most Instagram Worthy Spots-Sip & Play Edition

I know so many of you have been so eager for this 2nd part of this travel guide to be published and I am so thrilled to finally share all of my favorite Houston gems with you today! I launched the first edition a few weeks ago and I highly recommend reading it too so you can eat your way through Houston. Find it here.

(well there have been a few things here and there) But it was time to really put a good itinerary together for you!

And thanks to my friend Karen who lives there, she is always keeping me in the loop of the newest and greatest! But I definitely have my Houston staples as I like to call them! Each and every one is highly Instagrammable too! We all know it’s for the gram!

Paleo Bar-B-Q Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Anyone else spend their Sunday with friends eating amazing food and screaming at the top of your lungs at the tv at two football teams last night?! Surely I am not alone here!

Traditionally, Super Bowl food is a day for pizza, fried chicken wings, rotel, and beer but this year I really wanted to stay on top of my 2019 goals . The result? AWESOME. Did anyone complain? No way. Not when you’re eating Bar-B-Q. chicken stuffed sweet potatoes with Head Country Bar-B-Q sauce. Incase you need to be reminded of how much I love their sauce…click here. Bar-B-Q chicken stuffed sweet potatoes are an easy, healthy, gluten-free, and dairy-free weeknight dinner recipe the whole family will enjoy too. I have never seen grown men devour something so quick actually so this recipe is even hubby approved. Plus sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, C, and B6 which plays a key role in maintaining healthy skin and hair ladies. They are also loaded with fiber and potassium and they are one of the most delicious foods on the entire planet! I *might* be slightly addicted to sweet potatoes.

In The Kitchen With Shannon Smith From Beads & Basil/Along With Her Red And Green Shakshuka Recipes

I have been following the lovely Shannon from Beads & Basil for a few months and was so intrigued by her food, and travels so when she reached out inviting me to her kitchen to make one of my favorite dishes, well of course I said OUI! I was eager to get a closer look at her personal and professional life. A jewelry designer, a chef, a teacher, and a wife and mother on top of it all, Shannon does a little bit of everything. She has a meticulous yet laid back approach to life, which comes across in the work she creates and in the way she speaks about it all.

She is a wonderful human and such a fantastic chef to boot, (and here I though I was a decent cook) and her Shakshuka’s are out of this world delicious! I had no idea how simple it could be to create my own so I am so thankful to have learned with Shannon. I knew we were going to make a red Shakshuka but when I learned that we would make a red AND a green…well pitter patter went my heart! Two is always better than one, no?

Girl Talk//Tips & Tricks On Avoiding And Managing UTI's

Hellloooo Ladies! Happy 2019!!

I am so excited that my first post of the new year is one that is health related as I cannot think of a better time to start taking care of business and by business, I mean a healthy urinary tract! Sometimes life throws us curveballs which makes our bodies throw us curveballs and suddenly nothing is working right. I'm talking about getting a dreaded urinary tract infection, which is one of the most common bacterial infections. And for me, my very own stress levels trigger urinary tract infections. (Our bodies struggle to flush out UTI-causing bacteria more when we're stressed and our immune system is compromised than when we're feeling healthy.) It has been this way for years and years too. I admit it. I have suffered from chronic recurrent UTI’s my whole adult life. And my personal vow when suffering from a health discomfort is to always try and heal naturally first so today I am sharing some tips and tricks to reduce the re-occurrence of UTIs among sufferers. These tips will help you maintain good urinary tract health in the new year and beyond.
