Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up


Hi friends!  We’re a little over a week away from one of my favorite days of the year- Thanksgiving!  I think about this meal for weeks in advance, and menu planning is a huge part of the fun for me.  The anticipation! (!!!!)  Do you usually make the standards you grew up eating or mix it up with recipes you haven’t tried?  I usually go for a little of both- the comfort of the traditional dishes prepared the way I’ve always known and at least one or two new dishes to change it up.  Ahhhh, I can’t wait!  Some inspiration for you below if you’re still in the plotting stages!  xx- Sarah

Avocado Crostinis- 2 Ways


Hi friends!  Sorry I’ve been so quiet, the internet here is reminiscent of dial up and I was running around from sun-up until sun down with our Bula Wellness Retreat guests making sure they had the very best adventures in Fiji last week!  I’m still here in Fiji but when I get home I’ll be prepping for the holidays like nobodies business- it’s my favorite time of year!  And this year, pre- Thanksgiving, we’ll be munching on these avocado crostinis.  Because avocado toast is the best thing ever, as we all know, so MINI AVOCADO TOASTS WITH TOPPINGS are a MUST!!!!!  Hope you love as much as I do!!!!  xx- Sarah

Clean Eating 3 Day Reset


Hi my friends, happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was restful and fun!  When we were on the road I was eating a bit less healthfully than I like to, so over the weekend I started a three day reset to get my habits back on track.  It always helps me to make a bunch of juice and commit to a few days of super clean eating to get my tastebuds and habits right.  For me this means I include greens with every meal, avoid all processed foods, dairy and gluten.  I essentially just eat as many veggies (and fruit in 1/2 cup servings to avoid blood sugar spikes) as I can manage, along with healthy proteins and small amounts of grains if I feel like I need them.  And in between I drink my favorite juices and tons of water!  Today I’m sharing my three favorite juice recipes, my go-to’s for weekend resets or everyday deliciousness.  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah

Cappellini with Blistered Tomatoes


I try to eat seasonally, I really do.  And then sometimes, in the middle of Fall I  make cappellini with blistered tomatoes, the thinnest slices of garlic, copious amounts of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and handfuls of basil chiffonade.  Because I can’t stop myself.  The train is moving and before I know it I’m winding pasta around my fork and grinning.  What’s a girl to do, the heart wants what the heart wants!!!  This recipe is breezy my friends, although you may accidentally set off the smoke detector while blistering the tomatoes if you’re anything like me.  That aside, it’s a throw together that tastes far more complex than the work that goes into it, which is always a huge bonus.  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah
