The truth is…

You ever get in bad mood and not know why? (I know this sounds like a pharmaceutical ad, but bear with me… ) Like maybe you wake up and feel pissed off before you even get outta bed (“Did I have a bad dream or what??“) Or you’re hangin with a group of friends and feel totally numb and disengaged (“Where the hell did this come from?” “Why can’t I just enjoy myself?“) This used to happen to me a lot, actually, especially in my early-mid 20s. Like on a Saturday, for instance, I’d be getting ready for a “fun” night out with friends.

[2017] 7-day raw food challenge

Ya know, over the years, whenever I felt restless or on edge (aka anxiety), I pointed the finger at “too much work,” “too little me time”, “not enough rest,” “not enough sleep,” etc. etc. While all those things could have played a role, I was recently reminded of the bigger picture… This is what I read: “When growth and evolution stop, anxiety builds up. Just as physical pain becomes a signal that something needs to be done, so anxiety can serve as motivation to go on with the steps involved in change and development.” (from Yoga and Psychotherapy by Swami

Why I get off Instagram + back on my own mat

What kinda Instagram posts do you get lost in? Workout videos of beautifully toned and beautifully tanned women? Health bloggers with perfect recipes photographed in perfect bowls? Or maybe the private lives of your favorite celebs, or just the everyday lives of your friends? You ever observe what’s goin through your mind when you’re scrolling through this stuff? Are you inspired? Envious? Like, does it make you wanna get in the kitchen and whip up your own buddha bowl? Or drop everything and get to a boxing class so you too can take sweaty photos in a sports bra? OR does

When the Netflix cure just doesn’t cut it

Sometimes it happens when the lights go low, right? Or when the sun hasn’t come out for days (like here in Boston!)… or any other random time, just cuz we’re human. I’m talkin’ bout those moments we’re alone with ourselves. And a restless, uncomfortable feeling creeps in. Maybe it’s just loneliness. Or maybe doubt. Regret. Sadness or fear. In those moments, what’s your go to? call to Mom? late night run? Netflix binge? Or maybe grabbing an Uber to the closest bar, or texting “hey” to that guy you kinda like, but don’t really like (but maybe he’s good enough for just

Truffles for the someones you love

This is it, your last chance to order Jo Jo’s Raw Chocolate Truffles for the someone(s) you love.                               Remember, this isn’t any old chocolate. This stuff has been called “the bomb,” “the best chocolate I’ve ever eaten,” and “orgasmic.” Hey, just sayin’. Whether you’ve got one special someone or a few someones you love, I’ve got you covered. Cuz Hershey’s just won’t cut it this year! Ok, I’m about to go whip up the next batch – will some of it be yours? Place your

Chocolate for your love story?

Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s day is upon us (thanks for the generous reminder, CVS). To be honest, I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. In other words I spent most of my teenage years pouring out my heart via Hallmark cards, engraved gifts, and mix CDs (I was that girl). Now, here I am, a decade or so later, with many years of love (and heartache) in the rearview. And the funny thing is, I have more questions about love now than I did back when the boys of NSync were the objects of my affection… hmmm… So here’s

Are you a donut lover?

Well if you are, this one’s for you. Personally, I never had a thing for donuts… Or had I just completely blocked em’ out of my mind? Deep-fried dough with warm chocolate glaze… better for a Health Coach to avoid the thought of it, right? 😉 Nah. You and I both know that whole avoidance thing never works anyway. So, when donuts were recently brought back into my life during a spontaneous trip to the West Coast…  and when they were even more delicious than I’d remembered, well, I thought, it’s time to bring em’ back for good. So, here’s a recipe I snagged
