Everyday renewal

Happy Easter! Happy Spring!


Whether spring inspires you to get outside and soak up some sunshine or de-clutter your closets, there is no better feeling than opening up our metaphorical dirty windows and letting in the fresh air of renewal.

I adore – maybe even crave – heat, so the promise of warmer weather makes me feel lighter than air. If that’s you too, you may be feeling a tad anxious about shedding your winter layers and exposing more skin. There is no better time than now to renew our commitment to making healthy food choices. And the sunshine seems to beckon us to get outside and play.


Speaking of healthy eating, if you’re looking for a spring-y salad for your Easter celebration or just want to try something fresh, try my recipe for Roasted Beets with Oranges and Goat Cheese. It’s as delicious as it is beautiful!


As we celebrate Easter and the start of spring I am reminded that every single day offers the hope of renewal. If you’re ready to renew, plug in with me and let’s do this together!

Have a happy, healthy week!
