Spring is definitely yummy. I’ve been getting my weekly CSA box and visiting the Farmers Market from time to time and seeing all the fresh produce makes me happy. My favorite treat that’s been making an appearance in my box for the last few weeks has got to be blood orange, or asparagus... Hmmm. Luckily, I don't have to decide- I eat it all. 

Eating what's in season is a really good way to guarantee you're eating what's fresh, and in turn, doing the best job at nourishing your body. I read recently that it doesn't matter what you eat, as long as 50% of it is fruit and veggie based. I think that's a good way of looking at it to make sure you're getting your daily dose of vitamins- though in my opinion- it's always about balance.

I've been crazy busy the past few weeks and majorly slacking on the kitchen concoctions. This past weekend, I had some girlfriends over to put the finishing touches on some wedding invitations I designed- so I took the opportunity to create something using almost everything that came in my Farm Fresh to You CSA box. The answer, tacos. I roasted up all of the veggies, made a slaw topping with the raw ingredients, wrapped it up in a tortilla and called it a taco. Anything goes when it comes to tacos, in my opinion, and I was able to use everything in my box without wasting a bit! Perfection. 

Taco Meat:

3 beets (cubed)

2 sweet potatoes (cubed)

2 apples (cubed)

1/4 cup coconut flakes

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbs cumin

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tbsp cayenne

Salt & pepper to taste (always)

Combine all ingredients, mix together, and put on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes (depending on your oven).

 

Slaw:

1/2 head of red cabbage (shredded)

2 kiwis (cubed)

1 orange (cubed)

1 jalapeno

1/2 tbsp cumin

1/2 tbsp red pepper flakes

Combine all the ingredients, let sit for an hour before serving so cabbage gets tender. 

 

Toppings: (optional)

Avocado

Lime

Greek Yogurt/Sour Cream

Greens

Top that taco off with whatever goodness you desire.

 

 

You can feel free to sub out fruits and veggies with whatever you have available. Anything it goes when it comes to these 'everything but the kitchen sink csa tacos'!

One of the best parts about living in Los Angeles is the ability to take advantage of the outdoors all year long. I love going to the beach, taking bike rides and of course… climbing mountains. I try to get way up high every week or two to get in a bit of exercise alongside an amazing view.

I’ve tried a bunch of hikes in and around LA and here are a few of my favorites: 

Red Rocks Canyon- This is a pretty tough one, and it’s as long as you’d like it to be. Definitely bring plenty of water and try to go when the sun’s not at it’s peak. Look out for lots of fun caves & big rocks.

The Grotto- This ones a little farther out, but just as fun. The scenery is more wooded and the hike bottoms out into a little cave with a stream running through. Very delightful. Perfect place for a little picnic before or after your hike!

Eagle Rock- This is one of my favorite views. The hike isn’t too taxing, but it’s quite beautiful. Great for a day date!

Will Rogers State Park- This one is close and easy with an awesome view of both mountains, downtown, and the beach. A trifecta of awesomeness, do it!
