This is such an easy and tasty kale creation. The crunch makes it so delicious to eat – it’s almost like a potato chip! Plus the spice really makes it unique from your standard veggie chip.
Sydney is amazing – I absolutely love my new home. The city is so beautiful it almost hurts your eyes. The people are so wonderful I feel like I’m part of their family. And the healthy and active lifestyle is right up my alley. I’ve turned into a coffee snob, built an incredible network of dear friends, became addicted to green brekkie bowls (recipes to come!), and found love on the other side of the world. What more could a girl ask for?
Forget the fact that it’s well past Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and even New Year’s. My love affair with pumpkin is here to stay. When cooler weather arrives there is nothing better than a big pot of chili. This is the perfect healthy (hello, Vitamin A) and hearty dish with a creamy thickness from the pumpkin that is oh-so-savory!

It’s tradition in the Nelson household to start the carbs early on holiday mornings. For Thanksgiving it’s always pumpkin waffles. However, by the time Christmas rolls around, we are usually craving them all over again. In my mind, the perfect holiday breakfast includes all the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie in waffle form.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so here is a few thousand reasons you should add the Galapagos Islands to your bucket list.
Ceviche was something I was looking forward to eating in Ecuador. It’s often disputed that ceviche’s birthplace is either Peru or Ecuador so it’s hard not to find it, and order it, from any given menu. This Ecuadorian style shrimp ceviche took me back to the week I spent on the Galapagos Islands. It’s so easy and delicious!
The other night my friend called last minute to gather a group to grill. I’m 50-50 when it comes to handling last minute plans… I like to consider myself super spontaneous, but I really value prep time. Anyways, I offered to bring a summery side dish – thinking I could whip …
