I cannot get enough of this beautiful world we live in. .
.
.
It’s been amazing seeing the landscapes of California, Arizona and New Mexico so far on our #roadtrip. It’s humbling to see places like the cliffs of Big Sur and the vastness of the Grand Canyon. It makes me want to work even harder to protect this beautiful planet we call home, and help others do the same. .
.
.
Posted all the updates from the last several days of traveling in my stories! Days of adventures and MILES AND MILES without cell reception got me behind but hey, I’m living in the moment here! .

Our first stop in #sanfrancisco has been such a gorgeous and relaxing way to kick off the trip. Restaurants and shops still aren’t really open, but that gave us all the time to walk the beach and the marina and spend time in #goldengatepark .
.
.
We knew setting off on this trip that we needed to keep our expectations in check in terms of what each city would look and feel like amid this pandemic. This trip is definitely going to force us to live and adapt in the moment and find ways to make the very most of each day no matter what the circumstances are…which I’d say is a good life lesson no matter what. 💚☀️.

I’ve been a little quieter than usual in the past week or so when it comes to posting on the site, sending newsletters and on social media. Part of that is due to the fact that I’ve been swamped with family obligations, wedding planning and preparing for our road trip. But I also needed to take a beat, take in everything that’s been happening around us, and take some time to see where I could lean in and learn even more about being the best ally I can be. .

Checking back in and sharing some of my reflections, and goals for myself and for Eat.Think.Live. #linkinbio .

“IF YOU ARE NEUTRAL IN SITUATIONS OF INJUSTICE, YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE SIDE OF THE OPPRESSOR.” -Desmond Tutu .
.
.
.
.
It is not enough to not be racist. We have to be actively anti-racist. We have to act now, and be on the right side of history. .
.
.
In the past few days, there’s a LOT that has been said on this. And still so much more than needs to be said. But as my eyes glaze over from so much scrolling on social media… and so many redundant news updates… I am also acutely aware that not every word uttered is equal in its function and value.
.
.
.
Yes, I too am angry and heartbroken and so utterly furious and tired of the atrocities still committed against black communities in this country, and in the complete and total failure of the very institution that was supposed to make everyone feel safe. We have a shit ton of reckoning todo here… with ourselves and our long-held beliefs… with our own history and the stories we tell ourselves about what this country is and what it really stands for. There’s so much work to be done.
.
.
.
In getting started on that work, I don’t want to spend anymore time waxing on about how I feel about this. I know so many of you share those same feelings. Instead, I want to share some of the hard work and research that has already been done, some of the powerful words that have already been spoken. Now it’s your turn to the do the work, click the links, make the time to read, and learn. .

I will never say no to a pizza.
Make it barbecue chicken and bacon pizza…and someone hold me back!

Easily one of my favorite summer dinner hacks…throw anything in the fridge on a crust, smother in cheese and pop it in the oven until it’s bubbly and crispy and practically calling your name. .
.
For this easy #recipe:
-I chopped up two small/medium chicken breast and sautéed them in a hot pan with some olive oil. When the pieces started to brown, I added 2 tablespoons of our favorite barbecue sauce.
-in another pan I cooked some chopped up bacon until it was crispy. Then set it aside and sautéed some red onion slices in the bacon fat until they were soft and browning. .
.
To make the #pizza: -spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce on your pizza crust -add a thin layer of shredded mozzarella -add chicken, bacon and onions
-top with more cheese (we threw some cheddar on as well!)
-Bake at 425F for 15-20 minutes until it looks perfect to ya! -top with fresh chopped cilantro and dig in! 🍕💚💜

Have leftovers, will make nachos.
This is my favorite leftover hack for when I have some cooked meat I need to finish off! Today it was some green chili pulled pork I made last week. Threw it in the oven with sweet peppers and cheese, and then smothered it with our favorite toppings #forthewin
What’s your favorite leftover hack?!

Let’s hear it for the sunshine! 😎☀️🌴🍹🌸 #memorialdayweekend is almost upon us… and whether your plans include a big party or a more intimate celebration… every needs to get out into the sun, get some fresh air and soak up this beautiful time of year.

BUT BUT BUT… as we all start dreaming of (socially distanced) beach days and backyard picnics…it’s so important to take a minute and focus on sun care, and protecting our skin.

#NEWPOST ON THE BLOG TODAY:
I’m sharing some facts on the importance of sun care, my top 10 tips for protecting your skin from harmful rays…plus my favorite sun-care products for your face and body, and a special discount link! Get the link in my bio! .

Sundays are for comfort…and nothing feels more like it than digging into a dish that tastes, smells and feels like good memories.
For me, it’s my mom’s chicken spaghetti recipe. This was a weeknight staple throughout my childhood, and to this day, the first bite still takes me back. Juicy chicken, peppers and tomatoes smothered in a creamy sauce, piled high with cheddar cheese and then baked to perfection. Get the recipe in the link in my bio! ❤️

#NEWPOST: how to use #herbs to get gorgeous glowing skin.
I’ve talked before about the amazing and multifunctional uses of herbs for health and wellness. We eat them all the time, soaking up their benefits. But herbs can do so much more than that.

In my newest post on the blog, I’m sharing some of the best and most accessible herbs and herbal treatments for your skin… as well as sharing my own DIY facial steam, and so many other ideas for herbal skin treatments. Link in my bio!

Don’t mind me, I’ll be digging into this heaping bowl of #overnightoats…. even better with #chiaseeds and #veganproteinpowder.
This is so easy to make and you can basically customize it any way you like. Just throw it in the fridge and don’t think about it until morning.
Check out my stories for step by step instructions on bringing this to life. 💙✨

Turn every morning into a festive occasion with these amazingly yummy, bright & fresh lemon and raspberry scones. The perfect pairing for a cup of coffee (or a mimosa!) Some people hear scones, and head for the hills, and I get it. Often, they turn out dry, flavorless and way too crumbly. But not these scones. They’re made with Greek yogurt, and the results are perfectly moist and fluffy.
All you need is 20 minutes. Link in my bio! 🍋💕😎

Lemon peels, herb stems, garlic skins, OH MY! 🍋🌱 Some of us had already figured it out. Others may be learning this lesson more recently as quarantine has produced many a new home chef… but hopefully that means most of us are on the same page about this cold hard fact of cooking…. it can produce a lot of waste.

From leftover stems, peels, skins, cores, and rinds to bones, skins, coffee grounds, stale bread, used tea bags, wilted greens… it’s a fact of life… and what do you do with it all?

For most of us, the answer is toss it in the trash.

But that means you are totally missing out!

There are so many cool and useful things you can do to repurpose your leftover food scraps, and use them to improve new dishes your making… or even serve a purpose outside the kitchen. The possibilities are endless. It’s a very sustainable habit, and it can save you money too!

Check out my #NEWPOST up on the blog today, with 10 cool and useful ways to use your leftover food scraps. Link in bio!

I’m a little late with this #earthday post, but I think it’s worth sharing today and everyday. 💚😎🌎 I’ve been seeing headlines about how the stay-home orders and various COVID-19 prevention measures around the the world have reduced our carbon footprint and pollution output as a human race, at least temporarily. It’s WILD to me to see such a blatant visualization of our relationship with our planet. There’s no telling what will happen once things go back to “normal” but perhaps (hopefully!) there are things we can learn and take away from this period about how our days-to-day habits have such a huge impact on the health of Earth….this is our HOME after all.
I’ve got a new post up on the blog sharing some interesting articles and food for thought about the state of our planet right now… plus some links to EASY sustainability tips, and links to #shoponline for some eco-friendly must haves. Link in bio @eat.think.live! .

NEW POST: DIY FACE MASKS

I’ve been doing a lot of things to keep myself busy and motivated and SANE during this pandemic. Obviously a lot of cooking, and a lot of writing. And also a lot of other fun and random things in between (for example, ordering an acrylic paint set off Amazon so Avu and I could paint along with Bob Ross 😎). A lot of other DIY has been going on as well… bread, jams, even mop solution (can’t find Swiffer anywhere! 😩) Inevitably, I decided to go ahead and try a DIY face mask.
AND I LOVED IT! I think you will too. Link in bio for more info and some recipes to try! 💜💗💙 .

UP YOUR LUNCH GAME! 🥗💛
This recipe for a Chicken & Grain #lunchbowl has quickly become a new lunchtime favorite for me. A rainbow of colors and textures all wrapped up in a sweet and tangy honey mustard vinaigrette. Roasted chicken and vegetables add dense, hearty nutrients. This bowl tastes as great as it will make you feel. Link in bio! .

There aren’t many things more simple than a #foilpacketdinner. Just fill it up, fold it over and pop it in the oven. All the magic happens inside as the heat and steam create a delicious meal with very little work.

Happy Monday!
Hope everyone is feeling motivated for a healthy and productive week! Start it off strong with these totally meal-preppable granola bars!

Granola bars are a breakfast champion. Tasty, crunchy, nutritious and easy to eat on the go. I love making them homemade, because I can totally customize what I put in them, as well as what I leave out (including preservatives and added sugars). This recipe is for my breakfast superfood LOADED granola bars. They’ve got everything but the kitchen sink — nuts, fruit, oats, seeds, honey, maple…all roasted to golden perfection in the oven. The end result, crunchy, but still chewy, sweet, salty, flavorful bars full of vitamins and minerals.

Happy Friday everyone! We made it to another weekend!
With all that WFH, I’m finding more than ever that I have to 1. Stretch and 2. Just move more often. We’ve been walking the dogs a lot more, and I’ve been trying at home workouts on my iPad. It makes a huge different in my day.
But let’s be honest. There are at home workouts being promoted left and right on social media right now, looking to capitalize on everyone being stuck at home, and it can get overwhelming to sift through YouTube, instagram and countless other platforms.

In this post, I’ve tried to compile a concise but thorough list of great, at home online workouts…all of which are FREE. So really, no excuses. They range in level of difficulty, and I tried to include a fun mix of different types of movements, from yoga to dancing, to HIIT. Link to the post is in my bio! .

How many of you grew up on these like I did?! As we’re all seeking comfort in our own ways right now… I was inspired to return to my childhood and whip up some rice crispy treats.

I forgot how quick and easy they are to make! I also forgot how addictive they are and had to stop Avu and I before we devoured the entire pan.

*MEAL PREP DONE*
Just because we’re stuck at home does NOT mean we have to order take out or cook from a box every night just to keep things simple and easy. Posting in case it’s helpful to anyone else feeling cooped up and trying to make the best of this coronavirus situation.
Check out my massive, 5-week shopping list and meal plan.

This grocery list is exhaustive, and some of it is probably already stocked in your kitchen (that was the case for us), but I wanted to cover all the bases. You could definitely also use this list as a basic kitchen stocking guide for a new home, a spring refresh or whatever your heart desires!

CURIOUS TO KNOW MORE? OKAY, HERE’S THE LONGER VERSION OF THE STORY.

ETL started after I spent nearly a decade going to school and working in the media industry, including some of the top networks in the country, while braving it as an independent 20-something in New York City. It was fast and fun, but also exhausting and anxiety-inducing a lot of the time. 

But I did learn a lot. In the end, my experiences there taught me how listen & see more, and thus to write better, how to fend for myself in a kitchen and beyond, and how important it is to seek balance and live for RIGHT NOW. 

That’s what I’m here to share with all of you. 

Mostly… I want to talk about food here. Let’s be clear. I’ve always loved food. I can thank my mom for that – from the moment I started eating baby foods and throughout my childhood I was exposed to a variety of ingredients and cuisines, and deliciously satisfying home cooked southern meals. I am forever grateful for this, it helped me develop a passion and a palate for eating that has carried me to where I am now.

I really fell in love with cooking in college. I moved from my hometown outside Dallas, Texas up to New York City when I started school at NYU in 2011. Let’s just say the culture shock, and the wallet shock, was real. Life was hard, I was broke, but my taste buds were spoiled. I realized quickly that if I wanted to keep eating the same delicious things I grew up on, I was going to have learn to make them…because I sure as hell couldn’t afford to eat out at the places on my wish list. So I called my mom (frequently) spent a lot of time on Pinterest (still do!) and taught myself how to cook. Somewhere along the way, I started to understand a the joy of creating things; the satisfaction of completing a project; the calm focus of learning something new — in ways that I never had before.

It’s only recently though that I’ve truly fallen in love with eating, with consciously nourishing my body and thinking more deeply about the foods I eat, where they come from, and what they mean. 

Part of this stems from the serious health issues I’ve overcome in the last few years, which have forever changed the way I look at eating, wellness and self-care.

Another part of it stems from the the places I’ve been lucky enough to travel to around the world, exposing me to people, foods and ideas that have molded and reshaped how I see food, and the world and our both of our places in it.

It’s all a work in progress, and I’m still learning new things. 

Which brings me here.

This space is about exploring eating, first and foremost. Eating healthily, wholesomely and mindfully. I want to share my favorite recipes, explore new cooking techniques, shed more light on the magic of herbal remedies and discuss food from global, social and even political perspectives.

But it’s not just essential to feed the body. You have to feed your mind as well. I used to work in news and am always reading, and I want to share interesting and thought-provoking articles and resources on this platform, about food and otherwise, with the hopes of opening up new dialogue and encouraging people to think in the moment.

Finally, this space is about simply living in the moment. Cliches aside, I’ve realized this is one of the most important lessons you can learn in life. The more we let ourselves worry about the past and the future, the more detached we become, and the faster life goes by. I know this firsthand as someone who is constantly learning to better manage her anxiety. Whether it is through travel, our skincare routine, our home, our relationships, there are so many ways we can infuse mindfulness into our lives, and learn to be more present. 

This beautiful life presents chances for us to grow and love and learn every day if we open ourselves up to them. Thank you for coming along as we learn how to eat, think and live in the moment.
