  • Loaded Raspberry Coconut Mounds

    | You know me, I need a little something sweet to round out the day.  I have this little treat right before bed, after I have finished the dishes and prepared the lunches for the next day, after I have taken the dog out and cleaned up the living room from the inevitable displacement that results from a normal day, and after I have washed my face, brushed my teeth and gotten into my PJs.  It’s my reward for completing the necessary, and often unrelenting, tasks that life brings.  Before you start, I know they say not to eat right before bed, but for my life, this little moment is…

  • Pork Sausage with Bacon Braised Slaw

    | We have some big news in our family… Jeff and I are buying a house.  AHHHHH!!  It is a literal dream come true to get to find a place to grow our family and our lives, some place to truly call home.  We started looking a couple of weeks ago, figuring it would take us some time.  We have quite a few demands…shocking knowing me I am sure, so we figured it wouldn’t be a quick process.  To our surprise, the second day of house hunting we found “the one.” I know, it’s crazy, but the moment I walked in, I knew it was the house for us.  Nestled…

  • Low Carb Kohlrabi Beef Lo Mein

    | I have been spending a lot of time in the city lately working on various food shoots as an assistant food stylist.  This means we spend our days shopping for the most beautiful produce, protein, and anything else.  Then, we get in the kitchen, cook it up and make it look gorgeous for the camera.  It is stressful and fast paced, but I have been learning so much about photography and food in general.  There is nothing like being in New York City, the culinary mecca of the world.  I get to not only see new produce and products, but work with them.  Plus, I get to be inspired…

  • Tedi’s 12 Step Keto Reset – Keto Beginners Guide or For When “Those” Days Happen

    I’M BACK!!!! I had another blog post planned for this week, and it’s a good one too, but my recent experience has given me inspiration to talk about something else.  On moments like the one I had a week ago, following the two weeks I had prior, I think to myself, “how could I possibly write a blog post about healthy living, when I am still THIS person?”  Full confession, previous to last week, I had two very rough Keto weeks that included two fairly large binge episodes.  It wasn’t as bad as in the past, but I absolutely made some food and beverage choices that left my body feeling…

  • Double Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Power Muffins

    | Hello my friends! I am sitting here in Las Vegas, finishing up this post and thinking about how awesome it is that I can be anywhere in the world and share my recipes with you.  It is pretty amazing.  And now, I get to share my recipe videos with you.  Yep, you heard right, The Everyday Feast will now be offering recipe videos along side the regular recipe layout.  I have been working on this for quite a while and wanted to make sure I got something out to you that was visually interesting and showed how simple my recipes can be.  I felt like this was the perfect…

  • When More is Too Much. A Story of My Downfall of Living in the Extreme.

    Hello and Happy Wednesday to my fellow feasters. I am sitting on the porch writing this.  The sound of the lawnmowers and birds surrounding me.  It’s gorgeous out, still early enough that the heat hasn’t reached it’s peak and it’s comfortable.  Honestly, I don’t often get to enjoy this time of day outside, or at least not like this.  Not sitting, slowly breathing in the warmish air, heart rate lowered and mind at ease as I settle into relaxation, gently noticing the life moving around me with the leaves calmly dancing to the summer breeze and the toddler next door, softly singing her favorite melody.  It is nice.  It is…

  • Earl Grey Infused Coconut Ice Cream Bars with Blueberries and Cucumber

    | I don’t know what it is about the summer, but there is always memories of childhood fun in the sun.  For me, it’s moments at the beach, maybe a little too sunburnt, but happy.  I can remember my mom making ice pops for us.  She filled these same type of molds with juice and we would enjoy them after a day the beach or fun in the backyard.  They were always the perfect ending of a hot and happy Summer day.  It is with these memories that this recipe was born. I was walking through my local grocery store a few weeks ago on a super hot day.  New…

  • I’m Doing It, Finally Taking the Leap to Intuitively Eat

    Hello and happy Wednesday and happy first day of August.  Is it August already?  Holy crap…this summer is flying by!  It is wonderful to be here with you for another week.  Have I told you guys recently how much I love this?!   Because, I do!!!  I can’t believe I get to spend my days connecting with you about food and life and being healthy and happy.  It’s the best job I have ever had and I am loving every moment of it.  Thank you for your continued support, conversations, and questions.  I love it all.  So this is the week…the beginning of the rest of my life.  Okay, so…

  • Christiana’s Tangy Tahini Tuscan Kale Salad

    | Sometimes you taste something and you have to know how to recreate it.  It’s just too good to only have once.  This is how I felt about this recipe.  I was in Seattle visiting a friend and her family for her birthday celebration and was able to spend a couple of days after the party.  I have known Christiana since I was in fifth grade.  She has been there for the best of times and some of the worst, most difficult times.  There are few people that know me better. Being there was so grounding.  It was exactly what I needed.  I have been working too much and struggling…

  • 12 Non-Alcoholic, Keto-tastic Beverages and How to Navigate your Next Party Without Putting your Keto Lifestyle on Hold

    Hello Everyone and Happy Thursday! I am sorry about the delayed post here.  Generally I get my Musing posts out on Wednesday, but I took a redeye flight back from Seattle Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.  Therefore, yesterday was a blur of travel and unpacking and I decided some extra sleep would produce a better post then to power it out yesterday.  I will still have a recipe post for tomorrow as well.  It’s a really fun recipe that my friend made for me during my trip to Seattle and when I had it, I just knew I had to share it and she was generous enough to oblige.  Keep…
