My Top HHL Recipes of 2014!

2014 was a joy to share with you all. So thank you for listening and joining in the convo. To recap a few memories, check out my Top Ten HHL Recipes from 2014. This is a mega-round-up post with 50 links and photos from the top recipes of 2014..

Before I run full speed into my 2015 kitchen (and I am READY and eager for this new year), I need to look back. At this past year. What a whirlwind it has been. Book writing. Getting to know two brand new kittens in our household. Loads of traveling. So many new friends on and offline. Inspiring work conferences and events. Loads of beachy California sunsets.

2014 was the year of BUSY. And what do ya know, my food totally reflected my mood this past year. Kinda chaotic, but rich in flavor and fun. Lots of chocolate. Lots of energizing, beachy smoothies. Lots of golden colors. Lots of spins-on-the-usual. Lots of comfort food. And plenty of wellness-infused basics utilizing different legumes, creative whole grains and more.

Change of Tides in 2015. But in 2015, I want to turn the raving blue tides into a cool, calm clear teal pond. Sip more tea. Switch out the cardio for some yoga. Downsize my clothes closet, ingredients pantry and spice rack. Weave positive vibes and messages into everything I do, or at least try. Keep my head up, turned to the sunshine as much as possible. Read more books, and watch less mindless TV - only stuff that really speaks to me. Binge watching and Netflix can stay. Refine my tried-and-true, go-to favorite recipes and flavors and use those as my guide. Have a plan. Meal prep. More farmer's markets. Go for recipes that are centering, toned-and-sharpened with flavor, less-is-more, and quality not quantity. Or something like that. Lets see how this year of food and life unfolds, you and me. And this year I want to share more personal posts and recipes, meal-plans, videos and real life wellness chatter. Excited? Me. too.
