Hey lovelies! I'm finally settling down after my epic drive from Florida to Oregon. After a few weeks of living out of suitcases, I'm getting cozy in Portland, in a little apartment within a sweet neighborhood. I couldn't be happier! Months ago I made a list of everything I was looking for in a new city, way before Portland even came on the radar for me. A few months later, when I read it to a friend, she said I could find everything I was looking for here (except for the heat and the sunshine) and she was right! So despite being a bit on the cool side, I am in heaven, walking a couple of blocks to pick up organic produce and juice at a neighborhood farmer's market, walking to Whole Foods & Trader Joe's, finding new raw snacks at the local co-op and enjoying gourmet dinners at Blossoming Lotus.
After barely unpacking, I dove right back where I left off, in major production mode. Fingers crossed, I'll have not one, but two new books being released this summer. I can't wait to share the good news! As I plow through these projects, I don't want to leave you hanging the whole time, so I pulled out a video I filmed while traveling. With just a few handy tools and ingredients, check out how well I eat even when I'm on the road. Let me know if you have a chance to try this on one of your summer trips!
Here's the recipe so you don't have to keep rewinding!
Traveler's Chia Pudding
10 ounces water
2-3 tablespoons of nut butter (cashew or macadamia are my fave)
2 tablespoons of honey
3-4 tablespoons of chia seed (the more you use, the thicker the result)
Blend the water, nut butter and honey until smooth. Pour into a bowl and whisk in the chia seed. Let stand 5-10 minutes to thicken. Stir in your favorite fresh fruit!
