Fl!p Your (Airbnb) K!tchen

Breakfast for dinner
Airbnb has been around since 2008, and as usual, I'm a late adopter—this summer's trip to Scotland was my first time taking advantage of it. From Edinburgh to Inverness to Glasgow, then back through Edinburgh to London, we've stayed at five different Airbnb flats and had five Airbnb "experiences." They've all been unique, and they've all been wonderful. Part of what I love about staying in a...

Dr. Seuss is in the house (and in the kitchen)!

journal
If you've followed me for a while, you know that in addition to being a health coach, I have a side hustle that used to be my full-time job and that I still adore—from a bit of a distance since I'm now a part-time contractor and mostly work from home.

Fill Your Plate | Feed Your Life

One of the fundamental principles of Integrative Nutrition® health coaching is that we are not only nourished (or toxified) by the food we put in our mouths—our secondary foods; we are equally (perhaps even more so) nourished or toxified by our primary foods: the relationships, work, physical activity, spiritual practice, sleep habits, etc. that we choose to embrace. I love the work of Gene...

It linked to the website of a company that is "committed to making only the best plant-based foods and supplements." My combination of passionate real foodie and insatiable inner editor sh...
