So I have some pretty long-awaited news for everyone, but first how about I kick it off with an incredibly cheesy story… On July 31st, 2009, I was getting ready to go to work at my summer restaurant waitressing job when one of my very best friends called me and said I should make up some excuse to ditch the day shift and hit the beach with her and her friend from college. With only one month left to my last “real summer” before my senior year of college, it didn’t […] Continue reading →


Now I know that cookie dough balls are not anything new in the blogging world, but for some reason while I always had the intention of making a raw cookie dough ball recipe it wasn’t until this past summer that I actually did so and boy can I tell you that they are DELICIOUS.  Since I removed refined sugar from my diet I honestly haven’t been doing all that much baking and with the summer heat in full swing there was no way I was going to start attempting new gluten free, […] Continue reading →


I have been doing quite a bit or re-arranging around here lately. I don’t know about anyone else out there, but about few months I get tired of the way I have organized, designed, painted, or decorated a space and decide that it is in need of an overhaul. Right now I am so over the decorations in my living room spaces, specifically on my coffee tables, some of the pictures on the walls, and specifically on the cabinets underneath our televisions.  Here are some of the images that […] Continue reading →


When Mike and I began planning our Central American vacation I have to admit that it was a little overwhelming. Now I’m not new to traveling in more developing nations, nor do Mike and I ever tend to stay at your typical all inclusive resort when we travel, but for some reason planning the logistics of how we were going to navigate our way through Central America on a budget took some long nights and a lot of research.  For our trip we had roughly three weeks and we knew that we […] Continue reading →


Lets talk about coconut water, my all time favorite drink, and the only option I choose for an immediate electrolyte boost when training, doing yoga, or simply in my day to day life. Coconut water is the purest liquid second only to good old H2O and comes from a fresh young coconut, it has been called the “water of life” in many cultures do to its almost identical nature to our bodies own blood plasma. This fact actually blows my mind and further supports my belief that most of […] Continue reading →


I have a new favorite post-workout protein packed smoothie and it is DELICIOUS! I know I have talked about protein powders in previous posts and have developed a number of protein smoothies over the years (links posted below), but this one I think is going to be sticking around for the long haul. As a vegetarian/mostly vegan, it can be hard to make sure that I am getting good quality protein within 30 minutes to an hour after a workout. I tend to workout hard with workouts such as my HIIT […] Continue reading →


Over the past two months I worked out a lot. I did yoga almost every single day, hiked more mountains and volcanos than I can count, not to mention the very physical nature that went along with my work in Guatemala. However, one thing I was not able to do while I was in Central America was run…and it was not easy as a self proclaimed running addict. Where I was located in Guatemala it wasn’t safe to run, or really do anything alone, which meant that my workouts were mostly […] Continue reading →


Hi all my lovely Eat Simple Love Yoga Readers!! I cannot wait to share with you everything that I have learned and experienced over the course of the past two months living, traveling, and working in Central America. I am still in the process of going through all of my photos (which there are a lot of) from both my work in Guatemala and my travels with Mike through Central America. I don’t want to inundate you all with an abundance of travel posts so I am planning on spreading five […] Continue reading →


Here pictures really do speak so much louder than words, some of the pictures I have taken have been absolutely breath taking (like climbing to the top of a volcano), while others are heart breaking and show the poverty present in the communities I have been working in.        I have never before in my life felt so lucky to have been born into the life I was given, and to have had the chance for the opportunities I have had. Yet, daily I am amazed time and time again by […] Continue reading →


One of the promises I made to myself when I knew that I would be spending a good chunk of my summer living in rural Guatemala, off the grid, with very little access to the outside world, was that I was going to re-connect with why I fell in love with yoga in the first place. Since I first found yoga a good eight years ago now, the practice has helped me in more ways than I can possibly begin to explain, however in the past year or so my own practice and connection to what yoga means to me […] Continue reading →
