Have you seen my one-minute cooking show Minute Kitchen? Each short video teaches you how  to make an easy, healthy, (gluten free and often vegan) recipe in 1 minute or less! Check out all 8 episodes here and stop back every  Wednesday for the new recipe!

Gluten free can still be delicious and healthy, and here’s the proof! Sometimes it means getting a little more creative but the results are so worth it. All of these recipes use simple, common ingredients (no chemistry experiments here, I leave those to my fiance haha!) and take just a few minutes of prep time.Whether you’re gluten free or not, these recipes are tasty, healthy, and sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!

With all of these I highly encourage you to customize the recipes! Pick your favorite dried fruit or nuts in the breakfast bars, your favorite fruits in the cheesecakes, your favorite toppings for the banana ice cream, these are recipes you can truly make into your personal favorites.

After many requests, I put together a guide of what I think are some of the most important elements of starting to do yoga! Everything in this post, from pictures to definitions, are from my own experience both in my personal practice and in becoming a certified yoga instructor! I feel blessed every day to be able to do what I love, especially in practicing and teaching yoga, and I truly hope  this guide helps you find some of the joy yoga has brought me.



Yoga in general is full of core strengthening poses. Most core work in yoga has the added benefit of toning and strengthening the shoulders and upper back, as well.

These are some great prep poses for your headstand!
