Weekend Wellness Wrap Up

  1. My mindful meal planning chat was shared yesterday via the Conscious Eater’s Conclave online summit. I’ve been listening to the other talks and they are fabulous. As we all spend more time in our kitchens, there’s a ton of great info on how to make healthy choices easier on a regular basis. You can still watch the replays through the weekend for free. Click here to check out the speakers and let me know if you catch my talk!
  2. I’m obsessed with all things related to growing a kitchen garden, or potager en francais.I grabbed this new book and curious to learn more about what a kitchen garden coach can do.
  3. We got on the sourdough train too this week. It’s not our first rodeo, but it’s been at least two years. Round one came out great, and now I’m going to play around with some other recipes to find the right one that works for our timing. I love recipes that tell me “what to do when” from a time of day perspective. We used the one from The Clever Carrot and I found it very easy to follow.
  4. Our compost bin in the kitchen has had a broken lid for over a year. I finally replaced it and got this pretty copper one that can live on the counter and make it so much easier to clean up after everyone at home.
  5. I love the weekend links from Every Day Parisian. This week’s How to Stock a French Pantry was a delight to read. (and I’m still in pretty good shape from my fall trip to Paris!)
  6. The kids got a little sunburn yesterday. Yikes! We brought the Beautycounter sunscreen back out and realized we needed to restock. Click here to grab your sunscreen that is safe for sensitive skin, with no toxic chemicals and it’s easy to apply.
  7. In case you want my wine pick of the week, I’ll happily recommend our new 1/2 bottle of the Middle Jane Pinot Noir. The wine from Willamette Valley comes from a Demeter certified biodynamic vineyard, and they create some incredible wines. Scout & Cellar partnered with this winery to create the Middle Jane wines and they are truly spectacular if you consider yourself a wine connoisseur.
  8. Have you heard of Zach Bush? I’m getting on the bandwagon and listening to his work. He has a different perspective on how the virus has come to be from an evolutionary perspective. This episode is getting a ton of traction, or listen to the Rich Roll podcast. While I don’t agree with everything, I do think there are some very interesting takeaways from a science perspective.
    • “I aspire that we emerge from this planetary wake-up call not as victims, but empowered — armed with greater clarity to reimagine and actualize a better, more sustainable, purposeful, intentional, and fulfilling life experience for ourselves, our loved ones, future generations and frankly the world at large.​”  -Zach Bush

Happy reading friends! Enjoy the weekend and may you get some sunshine on your skin wherever you are.

xo, Emily
