Meat Bowl | Whole30

I’m like, “Come on Tasha,  you can think of a better name than Meat Bowl…” then it grew on me. The riced cauliflower cooked with mushrooms & onions then topped with meat, is surprisingly reminiscent of beef stroganoff. I think I may have liked it the next day even better! Fun fact: People at work…

Pickled Watermelon Radish | Whole30

So I get a CSA (Community Supported/Sustained Agriculture) delivery once a week. They’ve been giving me so, so many watermelon radishes. I’m by no means complaining, but I couldn’t eat anymore raw & I wasn’t really sure how to go about cooking them. Why not pickle them? I found a few recipes online, but they…

Turmeric Roast Chicken | Whole30

Once a week I get together with fellow creative, Staci Patton! She’s a Lifestyle Coach – basically a nutrition & fitness guru (WanderingHeart.Net).  This month she’s hosting a Whole30 lifestyle challenge, which is a diet change similar to Paleo.  Of course it was my turn to cook for our creative get-together, so it presented a…

Spaghetti Squash Casserole | Whole30

Before eating Paleo or Whole30 compliant, I could have never pictured a casserole sans cheese. I still have a hard time finding a recipe for one without it. I’ve found that adding shredded carrot to a recipe that you think needs cheese, well, it plays a trick on your mind. The shredded carrots resemble cheese…

Your family is probably already discussing their seasonal get together, full of temptation. If you have the chance, challenge yourself! Volunteer to bring a dish that is typically full of bad sugars & fats,…

Lavender + Rosemary Spray

  This is a truly perfect gift, as it’s multi-purpose. You can utilize the Lavender + Rosemary Spray in the restroom, or any room for that matter. It makes for the perfect pillow & linen spray. Not only that, but I actually went extra old school & sprayed my Christmas cards with it! I’m sure…

Keep It Local | Eugene

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again. You can try, try, try to make me a Ducks fan, but it’ll never happen. One thing you can do is make me a Eugene fan, though.  It’s probably one of my favorite cities in Oregon. I’m not much of a city girl, so that’s saying…

Keep It Local | Willamette Valley

It happened. We embarked upon our yearly 9 day road trip. How’d it go? It was magnificent! Last year we traversed the Western United States, beginning in Phoenix & ending in Spokane. We went to so many National Parks, we should have bought an Annual Pass – hind sight is 20/20…. This year we went coastal…
