Introducing: Food & Fitness Fridays

(UPDATE: Read the first Food & Fitness Friday post here, where I’m sharing my 14-day wellness jumpstart plan!) Today we’re getting up close and personal. Since this is, after all, a personal blog where I share my personal journey with food and health, I’ve decided (after probably way too much thinking…) to be completely transparent […]

How To Make Fermented Vegetables | DailyBitesBlog.com

Hello and Happy August! I’m back in action after a three week blogging break. I tried not to think about blogging too much while I took some time away from my screen, but why is that when you purposefully tell your mind not to think about something it naturally goes there? I’m glad to be […]

Taking Time To Be

Sunset

Yesterday I celebrated my 23rd year as a living, breathing, thinking, praying, doing, watching, hoping, wishing human being. Fresh off of a move into a new apartment, I spent most of the weekend unpacking boxes, cleaning dusty corners, and trying not to panic at the explosion of kitchen stuff scattered far and wide. I’m far […]

Celery, Fennel & Green Apple Salad

July 8th, 2014 at 8:08 am · Post a comment · 3 Comments

I’d hoped to get this recipe posted yesterday, but the day scrambled away from me as I got lost in preparations for my upcoming move later this week. On a scale of one to huge, this move is about a two. I’m only hopping a few blocks from where I live now, but moves are […]

Peas

First things first: Happy 4th of July! And second things second: Are these not the most gorgeous peas? They’re from my friends’ organic garden. I polished off the entire bag faster than I’d care to admit, but oh how I relished every sweet and snappy morsel. On this holiday weekend, I hope you’ll have a […]

The 4th of July has a way of sneaking up on me every year, but it still always ends up being one of my favorite holidays—perhaps because the very nature of Independence Day is jubilant and celebratory, even though it’s one of the most casual and easy holidays in the U.S. We can throw on […]

Oils for Fresher Mouth

Did you know that digestion actually begins before you put one bite of food into your mouth? Chances are you’ve longingly gazed at a delicious meal (or beautiful fruit crisp!) a time or two and noticed an immediate increase in the saliva production in your mouth. After all, it’s where the description “mouthwatering” comes from. […]

Beets n' Sweets Kale Salad | DailyBitesBlog.com

Kale salad and books. Those are the topics of today’s discussion. And they happen to be two of my faves. Perhaps it’s the long days or lazier pace of summer weekends, but I’m all the way into reading lately. I currently have about half a dozen books scattered around the house that I pick up […]

My dad is pretty much the best guy ever (which you probably already know from this post), and so to celebrate I made him Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp! My dad is cool without being the stuffy kind of cool. He’s smart, kind, humorous, and eager to learn—but it all comes off naturally and never seems forced. […]
