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 […]

Paleo Bacon Veggie Muffins

I try to get some kind of veggie into my breakfast every day, but it can be a challenge sometimes to cook and still be at work at a reasonable hour. I’ve noticed lately that I’m setting my alarm for later but still pressing the snooze button once or twice, generally creating a frenzy to get […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Your Mood

What if I told you that the phrase “gut feeling” was less of a metaphor and more of a literal experience? What if I told you that what you eat, how well you absorb and synthesize it, and the effect it has on your gut lining could actually alter your moods and behaviors? Would you […]

Why Gut Health Matters: Your Gate Keeper

In researching and writing this series, I recognize the challenge I face in cleanly separating the interrelated subtopics I laid out last week. So I’m taking one step back to explain the role of the gut as “Gate Keeper” before jumping into the rest. Giving you this visual aid will help you understand the interconnectivity of […]

Why Gut Health Matters: A Series on You

As you probably know, gut health is one of my pet topics. I truly believe that it’s the cornerstone for whole-body and whole-mind health, not just because I had a radical change in my skin after healing my gut, but because volumes of research on this topic have shown that gut health is linked to […]

CWB-Style Blended Beet Borscht [Recipe]

My first Borscht The first time I ever ate (or even heard of) borscht was back in Baltimore when I visited my good friend, Chef Jack Starr at his restaurant about 8 years ago. Maybe more like 9. My how time flies! Way back then, I had not yet acquired a taste for beets, so I […]

Mindfulness and Wellbeing: My New Year’s Resolution

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to start a mindful meditation practice. I have been talking about it on and off for the past 6 months, and though I’ve attempted to start a morning routine a few times, all attempts have been false starts — that snooze button is just too tempting! My sister has […]

Roasted Sweet Potato Soup

As promised, today is the day that I share my sweet potato soup recipe using the fresh sweet potato puree I made for Tuesday’s post. This soup is so sweet and rich, you won’t believe there’s literally ZERO added sugar, including natural sweeteners. All the sweetness comes straight from the potatoes, and with all the […]
