In case you haven't heard, cauliflower is the kale of 2015—the country's largest organic grower, Earthbound Grown, officially named it the top food trend of the year. Demand for the vegetable has been increasing because it's available each season, making it more accessible than some of the more typically 'beautiful' veggies (cough, kale). Not to mention, it's crazy healthy—among other benefits, it's rich in vitamins and boosts your brain health. Read More

If you were ever categorized as “basic” by the Internet, perhaps you are lamenting the loss of pumpkin in your diet this fall as you construct a less PSL-dependent existence.

Don’t give up on that pumpkin. Read More

Gumbo is a New Orleans treat that is hard to match. Due to National Gumbo Day approaching fast (yes, it's a thing!), this Sunday, October 12 to be exact, I have complied some recipes to try if you can't make it to the soulful NOLA.
Before you begin, know that there are two types of Gumbo, and that it is a Creole dish, not a Cajun one. Type one is based on okra the African vegetable, and two, is thickened with gumbo file, which is powdered sassafras leaves, which has a Native American descent. Read More

There is no certification required for becoming a Youtube “beauty guru.” It’s fine when young beauty aficionados share tips on clothing, confidence and how to apply makeup, but they embark on shaky territory when they start pretending to be dermatologists.
Whether it’s an urban myth like using toothpaste as a spot treatment, or rubbing half a lemon covered in sugar directly on your face, don’t trust advice from anyone who doesn’t have any sort of professional certification, because HELLO, duh. Read More
