Shrimp-Stuffed Avocados 2.0
Shrimp-Stuffed Avocados 2.0
As a kid, I remember the Ladies Who Lunch coming over to the house regularly to play canasta or mah-jongg. On these occasions, my mom showed me how you could use a fruit as a bowl for salad: she’d serve the pearled grand dames tomatoes stuffed with chicken salad, and that was the inspiration for this dish. I’ve gone for a different mode of transport—an avocado boat—and jazzed up the salad as well. No mayo here, but lime juice, cumin, coriander, jalapeño (za-zing!), olive oil, and avocado provide the diving pond for the shrimp. I think the Ladies Who Lunch would’ve approved.

5 Tips for Healthy Digestion
With so much information out there about nutrition it’s nearly impossible to sift out the genuine truth. Find something you think you can trust that even has citations and studies to boot, and guaranteed there’s some website out there that fundamentally disagrees with what you just read and somehow, magically, has the same amount of evidence backing it up.

Life is one beautiful mess of relationships. We can classify them. We can put them in quotes. We can add that extra long, extra inquisitive inflection at the end, but are we in a relationship? Some are transitory. Some are so interwoven into our fabric we can forget that we are separate from them. We can forget that they each deserve reflection and intention. We can forget that they are, no matter what, intimate.

If you’ve done the live Conscious Cleanse program with us then undoubtedly you recall Jo’s infamous “chicken breast story.” You may have also picked up that I’m someone who is powered by a plant-based diet, eating the occasional piece of fish here and there when I crave it.

Turmeric – the main ingredient in curry, a relative to ginger root, and a spice that I’ve recently been completely obsessed with, is a superfood and one of nature’s most important spices. Long used for adding color and flavor to just about anything including veggies, salmon, soups, smoothies and salad dressings, turmeric is as popular in the kitchen as it is in the medicine cabinet.

Candy is everywhere we turn these days. Bowls of black and orange M&Ms conveniently placed for us to grab and pop in our mouth without even thinking twice. Jars of candy corn and bite-sized chocolates call our names despite our best will power efforts.

5 Steps to a Salad Bar in Your Fridge
In my house, it’s my job to organize the refrigerator. This isn’t because I’m a master organizer by any means, but more because the kitchen is my domain. It’s my happy place. I spend a lot of time there and I love playing and experimenting with food and new recipes. And on top of all that, it’s my job to make sure my family eats well.

7 Tips to Get You Cooking Like a Pro
7 Tips to Get You Cooking Like a Pro
We hear it all the time. “I don’t have time to spend all day in the kitchen making my own food.” I get it. Not all that long ago, 4 years to be exact, “cooking” in my world used to mean swinging by the Whole Foods’ salad bar. Frankly, I didn’t think I had the time to cook for myself, nor did I really want to put forth what seemed in my head to be so much effort.
