Creamy (Vegan) Summer Squash Soup

The amazing people of CF NYC teamed up to tell the story of my accident and how Crossfit has made a major impact on my recovery. The very talented Mead Jackson (check her photography/videography out and then follow her on Instagram) and Steve Gardner (he is found here, and on insta too!) told my story in such a meaningful way that it brought me (and my mum) to tears. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. This is a story I keep very close to my heart, and the talented creatives who filmed this video made me feel so comfortable bravely sharing my experience with the world. You can watch the video on the CF NYC website. I hope you love it as much as I do.


Now many of you know that food and cooking has been as pivotal in my recovery as physical fitness has been. To highlight this other important aspect of recovery and wellness, Mead came over to get some footage of me cooking. I made up the recipe on the spot during the filming with what I could get my hands on at the Fort Greene Farmers Market that very morning. It may have been a hodgepodge, super quick lunch but it did not disappoint!  So without further ado I give you not only the awesome video, but this really awesome, really simple vegan soup recipe! Enjoy 🙂

Paleo Fish Taco Bowls

We have a serious amount of life happening right now.  Everything seems to be moving at rapid pace.  We are also sitting on the cusp of some potential monumental changes, or simply solidifying that everything in our little ecosystem will stay exactly the same for a touch longer.   But right now we wait, and while we wait I have been trying to keep busy.  Thus I have been cooking, baking and talking non-stop.   Which just means you reap the rewards of new recipes, such as this awesome Paleo (or vegan if you choose) dish.  Try using this recipe as your base and customize any way you like by throwing in any extra veggies laying around in your crisper (broccoli is pretty darn great).   Experiment, enjoy, but most importantly take advantage of the approaching warmer temperatures.
