There’s a lot of information out there nowadays on how to prepare for healthy travel, snacks to pack for the plane, what to do on board to avoid jet lag, but there seems to be very little on how to settle back into the swing of things post travel. After a flight, our bodies are dehydrated, our appetite is haywire, our circadian rhythm is off, our bowel movements may be on hold and yet we have to be up and at ’em ready to attack a to-do list as long as our arm! So, how are we supposed to do it all when all we want to do is lay down?

If you’re a coffee enthusiast it’s highly likely you’ve heard of ‘Bulletproof Coffee’, but if you haven’t your life may be about to change forever. True to its name, slamming one of these “bulletproof” bad boys down in the morning should leave you feeling invincible for the remainder of your day.
So, what makes this My New Roots mac ‘n’ tease recipe so good? It’s vegan! Not one speck of cheese or milk or butter or cream in sight. Nope. Instead the delectable sauce is a winning combination of roasted butternut squash, garlic, creamy butter beans, and cheesy nutritional yeast. Although not exactly like the cheese sauce of yore, it is still completely smooth, creamy, rich, and deeply satisfying when combined with fat noodles and the most amazing non-breadcrumb-topping made out of sunflower seeds. That’s right.

So we thought we would let you in on some helpful tips for the next time you’re not feeling too flash.
Now this is certainly a warm and spicy soup for the soul which is perfect for winter. We’re big fans of the blog Love and Lemons authored by Austin based husband and wife Jeanie and Jack who often complete their delectable recipes with a squeeze of lemon (hence the name). Their recipes are mostly vegetarian (although they aren’t entirely themselves) and their cookbook ‘The Love and Lemons’ was released at the end of March.
For a long time now, the team at Cali Press have seriously admired the work of the incredible little family that makes up Green Kitchen Stories. When David and Luise aren’t busy working, or taking care of their beautiful daughter, they are in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and coming up with super tasty, healthy and simple vegetarian recipes only using natural ingredients. It didn’t come as a surprise when they were announced the winners of Saveur’s ‘Best Food Blog Awards’ a few years ago.
Whether you’re the type to bound out of bed in the morning, or the type to crawl out kicking and screaming internally, knowing you have a tasty breakfast waiting for you sure does make it a hell of a lot more enjoyable to start the day.
We know the drill: working late, limited time, over indulgence or forgetting to give your body enough of the right nutrition. These factors together can cause your body to function poorly and leave you feeling way less than your best.
