How To Cook Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi
Good Day Atlanta invited me to the station to do a segment on how to organize the part of your house that looks like a hot mess. I don’t know about you, but I love Marie Kondo and her #KonMari organizational skills to “spark joy” in the home. While Marie likes to jumpstart the process in the bedroom closets with clothes, I’m a fan of kickstarting it in the pantry and kitchen with food and here’s why.
Food of the Gods: Cacao Energy Truffle

TOP 8 Reasons Mindful Eating Is NOT Your Jam
Wow, we’re racing into the Thanksgiving holiday week which means Christmas and 2019 are just around the corner. This time of year sends me into a bit of a bipolar mix of panic + peaceful space. Panic about all the things I didn't get to cross off my to-do list (gawd my first book AGAIN will it ever happen), and peace for all the amazing business growth/positive personal shifts that have taken place, and clients I have guided towards optimal health and wellness.

Breakfast comfort food... Loaded Cacao Oat Bowl
Hot chocolate is something that conjures up childhood. My mom used to make Ovaltine for breakfast with scrambled eggs, cheese grits, homemade biscuits with bacon everyday before we headed out to school. Not one to wake up with a strong appetite, I would wrap up breakfast into a paper towel and give to my best friend at the bus stop. But I always, always finished my hot chocolate!

This might sound a bit Forest Gump but you have overnight oats, oats on the stovetop, microwave oats, slow cooker oats, oatmeal in the instant pot, oatmeal bars, oatmeal muffins… you name it, you can make some kind of breakfast or snack deliciousness with oats.
