The Dish on Muffin Revolution [Interview]

Meandering through the aisles of Whole Foods Market recently, I was THRILLED to see a Muffin Revolution demo happening in the freezer section. I’ve been trying to replicate my favorite muffin of theirs for quite some time, and this was my chance to beg them to share their secrets. What’s Muffin Revolution, you ask? It’s […]

The Perfect Zucchini Lasagna

This recipe was many iterations in the making in the CWB kitchen. I tried a version of it that ended up too “crunchy” with slightly under-cooked zucchini, and one with vegan cheese (the cashew cream from this recipe minus the fresh herbs). I’ve seen many versions of it online, most of them stuffed with what […]

Celery Root Soup with Fried Sage [RECIPE]

I’ve been sick twice in the last month (including right this moment), and I’m super bummed about it. After starting my bone broth regimen in January of last year, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve been sick, and two of them just happened this month (the other two were horrific food […]

Reconnecting with the Present Moment While Appreciating the Past

It’s been a while since I reflected on the relationships in my life and the value they bring to me and my wellbeing. And in my quest for mindfulness and conscious presence in the life laid before me, I think now is as good a time as any for some reflection. I grew up in Houston, […]

Lamb-stuffed Whole Roasted Acorn Squash [Recipe] [Kitchen Hack]

As you might know from previous posts, I love a good winter squash recipe. My best friend in high school had a gourmet chef for a mother, and she would make butternut squash soup with sage and heavy cream — I’d sneak seconds out of the fridge when I’d go over there for dinner. And […]

Roasted Curry Carrots and Fennel [RECIPE]

I’ve decided that I need two ovens, because I love roasting things so much. Doubtful that will happen in my tiny kitchen any time soon, but a girl can dream right? I’ve sung my praises of roasting many times, but I have to say that lately I’m loving it more than ever. I want to roast […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Illustrated [INFOGRAPHIC]

This is the last segment of the Why Gut Health Matters series, but today I’m not sharing new information with you; I’m simply sharing it all in a different way — a shareable way! While 6-weeks of blog posts couldn’t possibly cover every detail of how the gut affects the other systems of the body, I feel […]

Living Your Passion: My Podcast Interview

So I know I promised you the FINAL final installment of Why Gut Health Matters today — I said I’ve been working on something that would sum up everything you’ve learned in a quick reference guide so you could share it with your friends and family. And I will do that! But I have to […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Your Stress

As I’m writing this post, for the first time since I started this blog over a year ago, I’m feeling a bit stressed about finishing in time for my regular Tuesday posting schedule. I’ve been working on this series, Why Gut Health Matters, for 6 weeks now, and here in the final stretch, I’m feeling the heat […]

Smokey Cauliflower Dip – Paleo Hummus [Recipe]

I’ve been waiting for months to share this recipe with you! It’s been percolating in my mind ever since I created my Cauli-freddo sauce recipe, but until I saw a beautiful photo of a WHOLE roasted cauliflower, I wasn’t quite sure how I’d make my paleo hummus distinct from other blended cauliflower recipes.  If you follow me […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Your Skin

Ahh acne. We meet again, my nemesis! But this time, I’ve cracked the code, and I’m ready to share it with the world. In this next segment of Why Gut Health Matters, I’m going to address the link between gut health and skin disorders. My personal skin issue has always been acne, but that’s not the only […]

Kasha Krunch: A Healthy Homemade Cereal [Recipe]

So last week I went on a bit of a rant about cold cereal. I said that basically all cold cereal is garbage. And what I meant by that was that almost everything you can get in a box from the center aisles of the grocery store is … garbage (or TRAY-ISH, as my Texan grandmother […]

New CWB Logo!

I’m so excited to debut my new logo today! If you’ve visited the blog since yesterday, you might have noticed that the little icon on the tab in your browser has changed, and now you get to see it up close! It’s my new logo! And Dexter’s in there!!   I’ve been working with an […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Your Weight

Ok, I feel like I need to preface this post with my distaste for our culture’s tendency to equate weight with beauty. It’s all too easy to get bogged down constantly worrying about our appearance and comparing ourselves to other people. (I’m not immune to this, by the way.)But being healthy and happy is so much more than […]
