A Balancing Cinnamon-Spiced Carrot + Apple + Yam Tonic

October 31, 2017

Perhaps this is the balancing concoction you’ll need when you wake up AFTER Halloween tomorrow morning; a little unsteady after a big, spooky night? I’m not trying to sound like your mother – really. But that’s where my mind is at, returning home after the last of our Rapha Rides events, and jumping immediately into some readjusting routines (spooky treats, extra naps and all.) The behind-the-scenes theme of my summer has been “take care of your sh*t, L.” Traveling, bouncing,…

Coconut Milk Ice Creams :: Golden Milk w/Ginger + Double Chocolate Cookie

I’ve been reading a lot about Chinese + Ayurvedic and herbal medicine lately, learning about adaptogenic herbs and the importance of amino-fying, alkalizing, mineralizing and rewilding our bodies. I came home from SO much travel earlier this summer determined to feel better in my…

Crunchy Spiced Quick Pickles

A Green Smoothie for Non-Smoothie People

I tried following “The Master Cleanse” when I was teaching and studying yoga in Asia, egged on my colleagues who had “felt the clarity of detoxification” by subsisting on water, cayenne, maple syrup and lemon alone for weeks on end. The first hours went…

My Almond Butter + Chia Airport Oatmeal

As I type this, I’m 30,000 feet up in the air (which seems to be the only time I find to write recipes + share things with you here. Yipes.) I’m headed to California to ride 300 miles in 3 days w/250 amazing culinary…

Great Homemade Honey Graham Crackers

What’s happening right now?!  I’m easing back into the grind in Boulder, after a fantastic couple of weeks in California. It was a whirlwind of zipping around, exploring new roads, foraging new ingredients, cooking up new flavors in unexpected places, meeting new people, zipping…
