Creamy Carrot, Sweet Potato + Fennel Soup

A lot of the talk out there about intuition, lately, centers around intuitive eating and how we try to honor what our bodies’ want in order to feel both happy and healthy. It is not something that I teach directly, but I am positive that learning to be a thinking dancer and more mindful yogi has made me more aware of my body’s needs and cravings.

Chickpea Shakshuka with Red Peppers + Goat Cheese

One of the things that also gets gently laid aside during busy periods like this one is the attempt to make intricately creative and elaborate dishes … It is the time to fall back on tried and true comforts that are simple to whip up and filling and energizing for a dancing body. Hello, shakshuka, my old friend.

Tahini + Honey Super Seed Granola Bars

…when those big looming things finally leap out at us from the seemingly distant shadows ahead, somehow it never feels like we did enough. Maybe the key is not just to prepare the tools and resources that we will need for whatever events or projects lay on the horizon, but to simultaneously cultivate a sense of openness- a willingness to accept surprise and be ready to improvise with whatever is thrown our way.

Chai-Spiced Date + Apple Crisp

This week it is all about the recipe, because how it came to be is a sort-of metaphor for the way I live my daily life. Attempting to bring two separate things together. Merging worlds, blending cultures, greeting my present with my past.

Summer Chickpea, Zucchini + Tomato Basil Stew

Personally, I know there is a lot more work I can do to cut down my general consumption and waste, but I am doing what I can in small, mindful steps. I am trying to think about it all the same way I do those choreography projects- how can I make this creative and fun within what I already have?

No-Bake Dark Chocolate Coconut Chia Bars

There is a time for writing and analyzing and a time for moving and feeling. Heat tends to make me mentally more sluggish and lethargic, so it only makes sense that my physical self is picking up the slack.

Gluten-free Dark Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

I am grateful for my own ability to adapt to situations and groups because in many ways it has served me well in traveling and living in a different culture. However, that surface level of only revealing certain acceptable parts of ourselves gets quite draining after a while, especially if you’ve been doing it sporadically since 6th grade. I believe that those random interests that delight us have value- it’s about time to own it all and eliminate the term “guilty pleasure” from our everyday vocabulary.

Two Travel Bites | Chocolate Fig and Almond Butter Cinnamon Toast + My Out-of-the-Box Packing Essentials

Today’s post is a bit short + sweet because I am writing from roughly halfway across the world. My mom and I are currently in a little Airbnb with the windows flung open, looking out over palm fronds and a little herb garden below, just outside of the historic town of Hoi An, Vietnam. We have had two and a half days of walking, sight-seeing, and a lot of eating incredible food. While taking a mid-afternoon break from it all, I wanted to pop in and share some general travel insights with you all, along with a recipe, tested and tried for this very trip.

Almond, Maca, + Chickpea Flour Granola

I am the kind of person who likes to make lists and check things off. I get immense satisfaction from organizing my days and adding up the little accomplishments. While this has served me well in terms of getting things done, staying on top of the small daily tasks and being someone who doesn’t forget deadlines, it also has worked against me in terms of adopting more of a yoga mindset into my life.
