Harvest + Bloom

Harvest + Bloom

This may come as a shock (okay, it totally won’t), but I’ve been working on a side project for a few months now. And by side project, I totally mean a new blog.

If you subscribe to the newsletter, you’ve already gotten a taste of the kind of content that I’ve been sharing over there.

It’s the culmination of everything I’ve done in my life — personally and professionally — up to this point. It’s as much about my own journey, as it is helping others go on the journey themselves.

It’s about doing the work. Making radical shifts. And changing your mother f*cking life.

(How’s that for a new tagline?!)

For the past 15 years, I’ve spent my days talking to people about their lives and their health. Regardless of the hat I’ve worn (and there have been many), the theme running through each conversation has remained the same: stress + unhappiness wreak havoc on the body and mind.

It leads to:

  • Stomach issues
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Chronic health problems
  • Weight gain
  • Relationship troubles
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Boredom

You can change your diet, exercise more, and make a point to do more fun things. While each of those things will help you feel better and make strides towards improving your overall health, it’s often not enough.

You have to do the emotional work, too.

You have to uncover your emotional blocks. To look your fears square in the face and understand how they’ve been holding you back. To forgive the people (yourself included) who have hurt you, let you down, or steered your life off-course. To learn how to love yourself; being happy and content in your own skin (no matter the size). To nurture your curiosity. To explore what sparks joy in your life. And to put your own growth and development at the forefront.

When you can do THAT, everything changes.

Your health, your life, the world.

If any of this sounds appealing to you (and I hope it does), I’d love for you to visit me over on the new site: harvest-bloom.com.

5-Meal Menu Plan

This Week’s Menu: Week 3

With a dip in the hot weather and a taste of what’s to come this fall, my brain has officially moved into soups, chili’s, and heartier meals. Which, for the record, I am 100% okay with. My cooking mojo…


A (fantastic) voyage to the interior.

What do Thomas Jefferson, Charles Darwin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Francis Bacon, Susan Sontag, Barack Obama, Sylvia Plath, and Winston Churchill have in common? They all wrote in a journal regularly (if not daily). I’d like to think that the…


This Week’s Menu: Week 2

Another week, another kick-ass menu to serve up. This week I wanted to switch things up and lay off the nightshades since last week’s menu was hot and spicy. I guess I’m still trying to make up for lost…
