Some lists of leaky gut supplements aren’t exactly scientific. So what actually works to repair leaky gut? And why am I even talking about it? As I travel the world, I want to feel great. But sometimes I just don’t. In fact, a lot of the time I don’t. So as part of my resolution
Rich, nutty pesto, earthy greens, and hearty, filling potatoes all in one pan? Yes please. I’ve got full kitchen access in our current AirBnB, but I still don’t want to use a lot of dishes or make a big mess. This one pan recipe was easy, fast, had little cleanup, and was the perfect light
Food in San Francisco is expensive. We were just in Thailand where I could eat an entire meal for like three dollars. In San Francisco I could easily spend $16 on lunch for just me. Ouch. On top of that, I’ve got some dietary restrictions and it’s generally just easier to cook my own food.
You know what stresses me out when I travel? Finding food I can eat. I don’t actually know if I have celiac disease (long story) but I haven’t eaten gluten in almost ten years because it makes me feel turrible. Anyone with a food intolerance or allergy knows it’s not always easy getting safe food. It’s
Most New Year’s resolutions fail. There are tons of articles on making your resolutions stick that offer advice like making your goal more specific, having a plan, or getting better at habit building.

Have you ever looked forward to something so much that your expectations actually ruined the experience? I’ve done this to myself so many times.

Literally every time I say “back in the US” I think of that Beatles song Back in the USSR, except I sing it Back in the USSA*. *Nothing to do with current politics… I’ve had the compulsion for years. Now that we’re back in the USSA after our longest ever trip away (two months… eeep!)
I thought finding good coffee in Chiang Mai would be hard. I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to find non-instant coffee that I actually purchased one of those pre-ground pour-over kits from a local coffee chain. I used it twice. By the third day it had become abundantly clear that you
I love Thai food. I fell hard for it in 1998 on my first trip to Los Angeles. My stepdad took us to a Thai restaurant (another first) and I don’t remember what I ordered, but I do remember it tasted exactly like heaven. Years later, still in love with Thai food, I became a
Ever wish you were braver? When I hear about people doing thrilling things I wish I could join in. But I usually chicken out. Instead of a thrill I feel panic. Honestly, I’d just like to not feel fear. Not feeling fear is fearlessness though, not bravery, right? OK so being fearless would feel great.
