Hey friends! I hope this finds you well.
It’s time to recap everything we did in February. This month was good for us in many ways. We took a last-minute trip to the coast to soak up some much-needed sunshine, John went skiing while I had a treat-yo-self weekend, we spent some quality time with new and old friends, I strangely got really into taking baths (a first for me), and I read some amazing books (see my favorites below!). I hope your month was just as awesome.
Thanks for reading along this month! We sincerely appreciate it.
We have so many exciting things coming up this month (recipes and otherwise), so be sure to tune back in for an exciting March! But for now, let’s kick things off with eats.
1. Super Chunky Coconut Granola // 2. General Tso’s Tofu Stir Fry // 3. Raw Double Chocolate Macaroons // 4. Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Cookies // 5. Easy Garlic & Herb Vegan Cheese // 6.

What We Did //
We sent out our second Bonus Recipe yesterday! Did you get it? We hope you love it! In case you missed the news, email subscribers are receiving one FREE BONUS RECIPE every month in 2016 that won’t be shared anywhere else! Sign up now to receive February’s bonus recipe, and to be on the list for next month’s as well.
We also met Jess Lively from the Jess Lively Show this month (!!), and she’s just as lovely in person as she is on the show. In case you missed our 2014 interview with her, check it out to learn more about background and how we adapted a simple lifestyle. I’m still loyal follower of her show and a few of my favorite recent episodes have included Alex Ikonn (who spoke on productivity), Alisa Vitti (who spoke on embodying pleasure), and Monique from Ambitious Kitchen (who spoke on making healthy baking swaps).
What We’re Into //
Watch – I’ve been super into Snapchat this month! If you don’t follow me, find me at username: minimalistbaker for behind-the-scenes action and random thoughts. It’s so fun, you guys.
Drink – Golden milk. All hail golden milk. Nutrition Stripped’s recipe is on point! If you don’t know what it is, check out her post for all the health benefits and a recipe video.
Eat – A shout-out to my friend, Andrea, of Dishing up the Dirt. She’s been inspiring me with her food photography and farm-to-table recipe vibes. She and her husband operate a farm about an hour from Portland, which is oh-so dreamy. Check her out if you’re looking for some whole food inspiration.
Read – This month I loved both the “The Hormone Cure” and “The Woman Code,” which were incredibly eye opening and helpful in the realm of women’s health. If you’re a lady and are curious about, or have struggled with, your hormones, these are excellent reads!
What We’re Craving //
In March I’m still crushing on lentils and chickpeas (are you surprised?), as well as chia seeds! So healthy and delicious.
That does it. See you back soon for a new recipe! xo
