Shyness + Fun in Fort Lauderdale


Did I mention the garden event I would be doing here, sort of locally? (Fort Lauderdale) Well, I did it! I'm mostly impressed because I am such an introvert-- especially in unknown social events like this, but I'd say it went pretty well. There was only one real question that stumped me-- something about a specific flower--- I was like, "hmm I don't know, fruiting plants are more my forte." But everyone was super nice. It was a good two days at Orchard Hardware. I really like that place. I know I mentioned it, but I'm a sucker for hardware stores in general, and this place has a good big, but not too big, and small, but not too small vibe. Just right.

I'm really happy to be getting more comfortable... in my own skin I guess. I'm still crazy shy around people I don't know, especially big groups of people. But I'm getting better. A lot better. Once I warmed up, I had a lot of fun. Or more specifically, once I moved myself to behind the plant table, I had a lot of fun ;) I felt more in my element behind a wall of beautiful plants, haha.

The happiest grand opening :) 
I'm dot number 3, garden style advice :) 

so many tropical friends. 

and spiky beautiful friends :) 

The second day I had a little visitor come with me! She was the best! I stood by the adopt a plant section (again, hiding behind the plants, haha) and I was helping people find the right plants for them. Within an hour Marlowe was telling them which plants are better for indoors or outdoors --- or bright sun or low sun :) She's the best.

reading about my blog, haha. I try to explain to her what I do for 'work' and it seems like she mostly gets it. I guess the hardest thing is that I do so many different things its hard to keep up sometimes. A jack of all trades.... sort of. Haha. 

So Orchard had a ton of activities and awesome free take homes all weekend! There was a spin art part for the kiddos. Which of course Marlowe loved. And then the adopt a plant section, where you could choose a free plant to take home and some garden gloves. Upstairs you could even have your own t-shirt pressed/printed for you! And there was even free food! The first day there were some grill people there--- rice and beans for the veg people. The second day there was an ice cream and snow cone truck :) Each of their events I've been to has been so great. They really try to make it a whole experience. Not just a "hey come look at our store" but a, "hey come look at our store and enjoy a lot of fun things and take home some gifts too" :)

spin art magic. Kind of makes me want to get one again. 

The prettiest. 

omg and so many sweet dogs. lately I've been questioning a second dog--- a hypoallergenic one of course. But I know we shouldn't. Because even if my allergies don't attack me, we're better off with less to worry about. Jerry is easy (the chickens are too) because he's one lazy sleepy dog that can go with family. But having two dogs to worry about when we travel? That would be harder. We'll see.

Also, totally random: so Orchard will pot your plant for free. Thats cool. But the random (or interesting) part: they have a life time guarantee on plants. Isn't that crazy?! You take it home and it dies on you and you can bring it back for a new one!! With a receipt of course--- but still!

Marlowe picked out a papaya tree and a few other succulents for a project we're gonna work on when I get back from Mexico :)

Me and my helper. We had a good time. I'm excited to have more and more stores popping up around here! If you didn't know, theres already a few down here in south Florida. My dad tried to visit me and ended up at the one in Coral Springs instead of Fort Lauderdale where I was. He later admitted that he didn't read through my whole post, haha. That'll happen. But yeah, if you're in Florida (or California) check them out. So friendly, awesome, nice, AND useful!  :)


Alright friends, I hope you have a great weekend! I'm off to Boca this weekend with my mom. A little staycation :) If you guys have any favorite vegan/healthy food spots or things to do, please let me know! It's only 20ish minutes away from me, but I feel like so much is popping up that I have yet to hear of! :)

Say Something


I sat down this morning to write a post about travel-- about feeling at home, while traveling. Something I'm so grateful to be able to do again. I opened my twitter first, something I rarely do (I usually use it in the evening for reading and reposting articles on health and food justice), but at the very top was a tweet from TEDtalks to a video entitled, "What Happens When You Have A Disease Doctors Cant Diagnose?" It pulled me in. I knew I would have to watch it. I knew it would affect me. I guess the thing is I didn't expect to sit here crying during and after it.

I got up, made 60 ounces of a banana + greens smoothie. A banana smoothie--- questioning still, with every banana that I peel, who am I? Who have I become? As someone who, just year before, couldn't sit in the same room with someone eating a banana-- this is huge. Peel after peel, I place 3, 4, 5, sometimes more bananas in the blender for me to whiz up and drink, for my health. And I know I've changed.

I dont often think about how truly sick I got two years ago. It's honestly hard to believe it was two years ago. It so often feels like a distant memory, thats better left forgotten. I'd rather focus on the good around me, and not the hardness of it all. So much time spent in bed, paralyzed with pain and symptoms that felt (and sounded) so alien. I was so sick. More sick than I would ever like to admit to myself or anyone else. I'm a tough guy, don't you know? At least I play one in my life. But painful and stranger sounding symptom, after stranger sounding symptom, I was sick, really physically sick. And after time, emotionally I began breaking too. I wanted to believe so badly that I would get to this point--- a place where I would feel human again.

There were days that I would stand and the room would spin so hard around me that I had no choice but to fall back over again onto the bed--- where I knew I wouldn't make it out of the room and into the kitchen like I had hoped. But now? Now I rise, easily, walk right into the kitchen, to greet my kid or make my breakfast and I can sit outside without a struggle, without a second thought. I'm almost better. There are still lingering symptoms the I'm not sure I'll ever fully overcome. Some come and go, like the burning in my gums--- but then there are things like my hearing. Like, the ringing in my ears has never silenced. And sometimes, when I'm overtired or in the late hours of the night, it gets so loud that I can hardly hear anything else at all. But I do have my hearing and I am grateful, because I know with many intense viruses, this can go too. And I try to meditate through the lingering loudness.

And there were points where I felt crazy. Doctors visit and test after test. Thousands and thousands of dollars of my savings lost to the reality that no doctor could properly diagnose what I was experiencing. The best, and easiest explanation for some people (doctors or not), the it must be in my head. That must be it, right? Perfect blood work, but crippling symptoms? It must be that I'm crazy. That I like to feel miserable. That I want to be in bed-- and escape from the responsibilities of living my (amazing) life and caring for my (even more amazing) kid. And I would leave crying, hopeless again.

For every push forward, I would fall back. But my family would remind me that every fall back I had, was shortened. Six months of fevers and being bedridden would turn into one month of being bedridden with fevers that would come and go, and then two weeks, and then eventually only a few days of falling back at a time. And I eventually got to the point where I would have more up time out of bed and eventually out of the house then down time eventually. The downtime still hurt, physically and emotionally, but I had to agree, I was slowly getting better.

Since changing my diet even more, (read all food and health related posts here) I've seen the biggest shift. My immune system is growing again. Going against the recommendation of every doctor: and eating a diet filled with fruit, living food, and lower in fat and protein, I'm thriving. My immune system is back and as I watch others catch cold after winter cold, I'm grateful that my body is once again strong enough to fight the germs off. It's not perfect, sure. And a cold will come to me at some point again I'm sure, but my body truly is fighting and by many standards, thriving. My months to weeks or being down, has turned into a 24 hour period.

Being the perfectionist I am, I do look forward to the day when it's (my immune system) and I am even stronger. The day when I can say, "I've sent all my symptoms away"--- but for now, I don't take the stage of health I'm in for granted. I am truly grateful. I know I am lucky-- that I could have had it much worse. As my nutritionist has said: that that my diet and lifestyle had played (and will play) a huge roll in it. That had I not had the (high probiotic pretty healthy) diet I had, that the c. diff part of my illness would have most likely killed me. That if I wasn't so adamant and hard working with my diet and health after the fevers, the crippling and bending body pains, the brain fog that was so heavy that I could hardly even read and understand a paragraph in front of me, and the hundred other symptoms that I experienced while laying bedridden-- that I would not be in the state I am in today. I know luck and strains of illness plays a part, but I know I've put the work in too. There are many parts that play a role. I did not give up and fight for my health when the doctors gave me no hope-- or often left me less hope than I went in with. I did not give up studying and learning about health, food, and diet--- and even to this day, I'm reading and learning as much as I possibly can. I want take in as much knowledge as I can about these things-- for myself-- and hopefully to help others who are struggling too. I cannot tell you how good it feels to receive follow up emails from you guys who have emailed me for help and advice-- telling me you are on a healing path now. That you are on your way to doing better, thanks to the advice I've given in this space or personally responded to you. Gosh, I'm grateful for this space.

So back to where today started. I woke up today, deciding I was going to fight for my health some more. That I would have to be more determined and hard working on the parts I've been slacking in. But I was (gratefully) distracted with this tedTalk and this story.

Invisible symptoms are painfully hard. They can range from mild to completely life disrupting and worse. I cried this morning as I felt the pain of others and I remembered my own pain. Hell, I'm starting to cry now again.

I don't ever want to live those two painful years again, but I am grateful I lived them. Often, I'm better off pretending that the hard parts never existed at all. But there are days like today, where I am undoubtedly evoked and brought so intensely back to my own memories... and that is okay. That is actually good. Sometimes we need a reminder of past pains and struggles to be reminded of where we are now and how far we've come. I am where I am now. I know more now about myself than I ever did before. I know more about health than I did before. I am not the same person I was before the "invisible" problems struck, but thats okay. I'm stronger, more knowledgeable, and growing more and more everyday. Grateful for the air I breathe warm sunshine I feel.


Here is the tedTALKS I watched, I hope it says something to you, just as it did for me. Whether you are fighting and invisible illness, know someone who is, or just want to hear an amazing and powerful story about medicine and health, I'd recommend you check it out.

Also, while I'm here on the topic, I just want to say thank you to my friends and family (and readers!) who stuck by me. Who believed in me, who fought for me. I know you didn't have to. And I appreciate you so much because you did. Thank you.

I hope you guys are having an amazing week. I'm going to attempt to run today. Something that friends and family are instantly laughing at the idea of. But I'm going to. My body has come so far, who says it can't go further?

Thanks for being here friends. And thanks for letting me post all the happy stuff-- but all the very real and hard stuff too. It was harder than I ever really let on, but you guys helped me get through it too.

ps. for anyone struggling with a mystery illness, invisible illness, or autoimmune disorder, I definitely recommend THIS book. Take the story with a grain of salt if you want, but take the diet seriously. 

Save More Money, Save The Earth, & Look Cute Doing It Too (&&& A $250 Giveaway Too!)


Have you guys seen the newish documentary on Minimalism? Marlowe and I liked it so much we watched it twice. The second time we watched it? It was because she asked. Is that a mom brag? I don't care, I love that kid. Minimizing is hard in a buy buy buy world. I know I just talked about this-- but I want to find a way to move beyond the fast fashion, fast consumerism world.

I don't buy clothes often. Not by modern day standards anyway. But I do like clothes--- specifically comfortable clothes (bonus points if they're cute). I've been working hard on filling my closet with intentional purchases. Things that I will use often, without a second thought. And honestly, one of the only reasons I've had to buy clothes at all in the past two years was because of C. diff. The clothes I had before, especially the bottoms no longer fit me... and probably never will. And thats okay. I've been slowly letting go of the pieces that will never fit me again. And even more slowly, allowing new pieces to come into my space that will serve a functional purpose.

In the next few weeks, I'm hoping to narrow down my closet even more-- slowly letting go of items that are too big or just not loved and worn often.

Just click the link, pick out something you love and leave a link in the comment section below to win! (Don't forget to leave your email address too!) 

Okay long winding thoughts and words, lets go:

It's a bit crazy to me, that even today, in 2017 we find such push-- actually a bigger push than ever before to keep up with the Jones'. The Jones' were so 70 years ago. We should know better now. We don't have to keep up with anything or anyone. We are not what we own. We are not what we wear. We are what drives us, what makes us happy, what keeps our heart beating everyday. What we wear is gravy, its complimentary. I want to be a hardworking, loving, and honest woman--- who happens to be incredibly comfortable and look put together while doing it. I want to know that what I'm wearing is putting as little ecological strain on the earth-- it's reusing what has already been made and creating less demand. And hey, if it happens to be a badass outfit in the process? Then thats awesome. The thing is that buying secondhand doesn't mean you're worth less or less than. Buying secondhand means you're putting thought into the purchases you make. thredUP proves that secondhand shopping can be thoughtful, economical, and fun.

This isn't my first time using thredUP. And it won't be my last. As seasons change and my body changes or items becoming worn and need replacing, I plan to look and shop first at secondhand. Call it a resolution if you'd like. It sort of is, but not just for this year, but every year. What I prefer about thredUP to your regular thrift store (besides the fact that I don't have to put on shoes and go to a store) is this:
-I can look for exactly what I want. Secondhand shopping with a search bar? I 'll take it!
-I'm more likely to find styles that I would wear everyday. A thirst store will be filled with clothing for a wide variety of age groups and decades. I can expect to find more clothing options that fit my generation (and likely yours too).
-I can return the clothes if they end up not working out! You def. can't do that at a thrift store.

This is not to say that thrift stores or bad or pointless--- thrift stores are wonderful for finding amazing things--- but if it's up to me (and it is, duh) then I'm going to choose to look online and type in exactly what I'm looking for, before spending hours shuffling through racks of items. Ya know?

So what is thredUP (if you haven't gotten the gist of it yet?) It's a huge online marketplace to find women's, kids, and mens clothing at up to 90% off the in store price. The shop is mainly filled with top name brands and high end designers too. They inspect all their clothes before selling them to make sure they're like new. A lot of the clothes are like new, having the tags still on! I've purchased a few items with tags on them still :)

You search the site, you can narrow by size, color, designer, whatever to find what you're looking for. For me, at 30+ years old, I'm finally learning what brands actually fit me and what don't-- so I very easily and happily type in those brands to shop first.

I'm excited about my recent purchases. Super excited. I purchased a black dress with the cutest back. Everyone needs one simple black dress, right? And two rompers. I can live in rompers, so this is perfect for me. And comfortable shorts, because you guys are probably tired of seeing me in my one pair of jean shorts all the time, right? haha. I'm super excited to be adding these items to my mix of clothes and removing the items I've been holding onto that are cute, but don't fit quite right anymore. It's weird, but I'm actually looking forward to going through my closet and counting every piece I own and minimizing to the max.

I like to put things out here to be held to it... but I'm really hoping this year to make a pledge of sorts. I had one friend once pledge to not buy ANY new pieces for an entire year. The only clothing items that would be brought in were to be secondhand. I'm hoping to do something of this sort. I'm hoping to have the only pieces I bring in be secondhand items OR new organic items. No new non-organic items. Better my closet and minimize my impact.

Did you know that if 1 out of 100 households shopped secondhand, they would collectively save 1.6 billion dollars every year? Thats crazy. Thats a lot of money to be saved! And that would make aHUGE impact on the waste going out in the world. So yeah, I pledge to buy only organic and/or sustainable clothing this year. Maybe you can too? Yeah?


Have you been needing a new party dress? Or maybe the perfect top to match a skirt? Let's make a shift to have our first step to new purchases be to buy secondhand. Secondhand first, ya? It makes sense to me---- and for our earth :)


And hey, you can look cute while doing it too. I mean, I might not wear this top with these shorts--- I purchased this top to go with my jeans and these shorts to go with my solid colored tops--- but this works too, right? Sure. I mean, if you haven't noticed I basically live in blue, black, grey, and white-- with the occasional plash of muted pink haha.... or some sort of striped version of that :) This way everything (almost) always goes together ;)

Want to know how much I saved with these thredUP purchases?
42$ on the blue striped Madewell shirt
50$ on the cute skimpy Gentle Fawn shorts (my new vacation shorts, haha)
83$ on the black Madewell jumper
33$ on black Billabong dress
86$ on blue Madewell romper
and 53$ on the black floppy Vince Camuto hat.

Thats 348$ saved. Thats more than the cost of two plane tickets for me to go to Mexico. Thats basically two plane tickets to Mexico + two nice bottles of tequila, haha. And then with the 40% off discount you get by using the code OHDEAR40? Well, thats 2 plane tickets to Mexico and a plane ticket to Puerto Rico too. Thats crazy.

And yes, I absolutely count all money I spend by comparing prices on plane tickets, haha.

So yeah, secondhand shopping makes sense. And if you're looking for specific clothes, cute clothes, newish trends, or looking to just never leave your house to shop, thredUP makes even more sense :)

A Healthy Cauliflower Bites Recipe (Vegan, Gluten-free, No Oil)


Hola friends! Ready for another recipe? I've got to tell you.... this is a healthy one. It's not rich or decadent. But it's a pretty good, yummy health food option. You may have seen and/or tried "cauliflower wings" before--- this is not that. The reality is that most cauliflower wings (while perfectly delicious) are not really that much healthier for you than a chicken wing. They're still cooked in a fair amount of oil and usually using some kind of preservative laden hot sauce of some sort. Now, I'm not hating on them... if a deep fried cauliflower cooked in hot sauce was in front of me right now, Id TOTALLY eat it. But, like I said, this recipe is not that. This recipe is oil free, low and fat, and really healthy for you. The biggest problem with this recipe is that the first time I made them... I ended dup eating the whole head of cauliflower and my stomach was like, "did you seriously just eat a whole head of cauliflower in one day? Here is some painful gas for you, you idiot." It was a party. So please note, that you might want to make these for a group of people, your family, or a version of you that has self control around food and reminds your hands and mouth to not overdo it. Cool? Cool.

Also, I find that this recipe tastes best in a food dehydrator. But since I assume most people don't have a food dehydrator (they're relative cheap, but take up a lot of space and sort of a uni-tasking tool), I'm sharing a baked version of the recipe. So yeah, I personally think a dehydrator is the way to go, but they're not terrible in the oven either :)

I mostly love how natural the recipe is. Totally falling in the whole food/ whole 30/whatever category. It's nut and gluten free. Vegan, obviously. Raw vegan, if you dehydrate it. Etc. Also, when I make this for myself, I haven't been adding salt. I've been using the lemon and celery for the sodium taste, but this is because I'm training my taste buds to like less and less salt (hopefully). Do use salt to taste, so it's not completely tasteless if you use salt on the reg. K? Ok!

Want more recipes? I want to share more, but sometimes I struggle to know what what would be best? If you ever see meals, in what Marlowe eats or wherever, just ask! I'm happy to share!

Okay, lets go!



You'll need:
3 plump and sweet tomatoes*
3 stalks of celery
1 big tablespoon of raw tahini 
1 tablespoon lemon juice OR raw apple cider vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
1 spicy pepper (I used a cayenne pepper, but a jalapeƱo, serrano, or habanero would be good too! Do it to your spice level preference! And this is obviously completely optional as well. I do a pepper free batch for Marlowe)
1 head of cauliflower
salt and pepper to taste

*please make sure your tomatoes are sweet and not watery! when done with sweet tomatoes this recipe is extra delicious. The last time I made this the tomatoes were depressingly watery and the sauce came out super bland. Bland is not fun, duh.

Tools: 
high speed blender
parchment paper
dehydrator OR oven with baking tray(s)

How to:
-if using oven, preheat oven to 350
-blend all ingredients except cauliflower in a high speed blender, make sure to add salt + pepper to taste and pour into a bowl
-lay out parchment paper on baking tray or on dehydrator trays
-start cutting up cauliflower into bite sized pieces
-dip each piece into blended sauce, coating well and lay onto parchment paper-ed trays.
-play in oven and cook for about 30 minutes until lightly crispy OR cook in dehydrator for approximately 3 hours--- just open it up and check them out, they'll be warm, and crisp when done :)
- eat as is, serve as a side option, or top with on salad for a warm, but raw treat :)


This is the no oil version of course. You can add oil to make sure they crisp up even more. But I've been attempting no oil, low salt cooking lately--- you know, the whole frutarian thing. I mean, really, I should or could be completely raw, but I'm still eating cooked food for at least my last meal of the day. But yeah, avoiding cooking with oils and reaaaaaallly (painfully) trying to lesson my salt intake. It's hard! But of course, add some oil to the mix if you feel so inclined. They will crisp up more for ya ;)

And voila, on a salad. This was just a bed of greens, green onion, a tiny bit of leftover carrot ginger dressing, and the cauliflower of course :) Easy peasy.

Alright friends! I hope you have an amazing week ahead of you. I'm ridiculously busy, but it should be a good week! And of course, don't forget, if you want specific recipes, just ask. :)

Adios! 

New Year, New You, Humble Body (The Most Amazing Natural Deodorant That Actually Works For 1$)


Talking about natural deodorant on this post. A REALLY good natural deodorant. But if you want to skip over my talks on natural deodorant (and this one is the best one we've ever tried is) and just try it for yourself (for 1$!), you can HERE. It's totally amazing. And you're welcome in advance for not taking pics of me putting on the deodorant. Or rather, not sharing pics of me putting on deodorant. Because I totally took those pics and thought they were maybe a tad awkward for me to share? K. Cool. Read on....

One of the things I've been very adamant over the years is reducing the use of toxic products, non organic products, general crap, and so on in our homes and on our bodies. I've been able to remove everything from my routine, as well as Marlowe's with little to no trouble. Alex has been/was a bit of a different story.

We get so stuck in our daily routines that we forget to stop and think about what we're really doing. It makes sense though, when many routines have been instilled in us since childhood. Blind habits. Something as simple as everyday body care and the products we put on our skin-- day after the day, continuing the same pattern until something or someone wakes us up and reminds us, that our norm or the norm, is not the only option--- that the options are limitless, even if we don't know them yet.

Deodorant is a big one.

If I'm being completely honest here (I always am, I know, haha), I rarely use deodorant. The truth is, since switching my diet, I don't need to. The only time I smell is when I eat Indian food (specifically anything with fenugreek in it) and the only time I smell bad--- is when I put crap in my body (mostly and specifically alcohol). And drinking is a rare, sometimes once a month occasion-- but I'm thinking it should become a never a month occasion. And since I'm mostly raw now, or at least 70% raw, I don't eat much fenugreek anymore anyway.  I'm "too clean" as my step mom would say. Because when I drink alcohol-- I smell bad, REALLY BAD. Like, the smell of my armpits and my breath alone is enough reason to get me to stop drinking. I want to talk more about alcohol and my body, but maybe another time, ya? The point is, I don't really smell, so I don't need to worry much. But on the rare, delicious, occasion I have Indian food and I don't care to seduce people with my fenugreek smell, I do use deodorant ;)

Switching to a natural deodorant was a no brainer for me. I started making my own years ago, because rubbing toxic chemicals onto newly shaved pits? No. Ew. (Or even non shaven pits, duh gross). Switching Alex? Man that was more of a struggle. Is it a thing for men to be more stubborn on this sort of thing? :| Our armpits are designed to RELEASE toxins, not to take them in-- it's important we focus on our natural body design on our day to day, what is each body parts actual purpose? I want my armpits to release what they need to release... and not take in major contaminants while not completely stinking up a place and grossing everyone out ;)

I'm so grateful to say that Alex finally (and actually easily) switched to cleaner pits. I had been trying to get him for a while but every brand I brought home for him, he told me it did not work well enough. I get it, he's in a hot kitchen all day. But finally, Humble Brands deodorant made it happen. He opened up the tube and said, "I can already tell I'll actually like this one" and has been using it, liking it, and has had zero complaints about it ever since.

Me too. Even on the rare chance that I did use deodorant (prior to Humble), I never felt anything helped me much. I felt that other deodorants (natural and non) mixed with my body chemistry weird and didn't necessarily help the problem. But humble brands did and doesn't do that. It smells good in the tube and good in my pits. And unlike a lot of natural deodorants it really works. And unlike my homemade one (that I don't mind using), I don't have to worry about making this one... and it's a hell of a lot easier to travel with ;)

The best part isn't that it's just natural though-- yes, it doesn't have toxic crap in it (yay), but also: it's all organic too. Everything down to the cornstarch in it is non-GMO. So it truly is a clean and healthy product thats good for your pits and the earth and it works-- and works well.

Safe. Aluminum-free. Paraben-free. Cruelty free. Non-GMO. Organic Ingredients. Made in small batches in the USA. And for one dollar.... yes... keep reading... dollar!

Want to try Humble Deodorant? For ONE DOLLAR?! Yah, for one dollar! For a limited time, when you sign up for the Humble Brands subscription, you can receive your first stick for ONE DOLLAR! Weeeeeee.

I'm not kidding, this has been by far the best deodorant we've brought into this house (natural and non natural). It's truly amazing: for its safety, healthiness, scent, convenience, and effectiveness too. So this new year, why not start making the switch to safer products for your home and body--- maybe starting with your pits :) I mean, at one dollar for your first stick, you really can't beat that :)

ps. you can totally just buy one tube of deodorant, but I really think you'll love Humble-- totally worth subscribing. This has totally become a natural body care staple in this home :)

One little step closer to living clean and simple everyday :)
