I haven’t had the energy lately to create, or do much of anything for that matter. I mentioned my current state a few days ago on Instagram. Thank you so much for your kind words, and well wishes and positive vibes. I am hopeful things are on the up and up but still, there is lots to mend.

I’ve been stepping reducing screen time. Downing green juice. And, reevaluating the work that I do as a blogger, freelance artist, and health coach. And as a chronic over-extender, these changes are a long time in the making. As a result I’m retiring my 21 Days to Lean + Green program, after running it for nearly two years. My last group will take place this January. If you want to get on board more details are here.

My Lean + Green program afforded me great opportunities, and introduced me to some wonderful people. Like my friend, Maggie. The powerhouse woman behind the award winning online shop and recipe site, Eat Boutique. I first met Maggie when she became a client of mine in January 2015. Since then, I’ve witnessed her drop nearly 50 lbs, extinguish inflammation and joint pain, and gain enough energy to bounce around the country to promote her new book, Food Gift Love.

Food Gift Love, is a beautiful masterpiece that contains over 100 recipes to make, wrap and share, and I’m kind of obsessed with it right now. It’s perfect for the holiday season, and I’m giving away a copy to one of you! If you’d like to win a copy of Food Gift Love, leave a comment below telling me what you love most about the holiday season. I’ll choose a winner at random on December 7 at noon Central, and notify them by email. Sorry folks, this giveaway is open to US readers only.

About the chocolate ginger bark – it’s easy. Really, really easy. Which is good for me, because that’s about all I can muster right now. It’s also so flexible, and you can add really any toppings you’d like. Maggie’s recipe from the book has dried fruit {cherries, apricots, cranberries, etc.} along with the ginger. But, I decided to simplify the toppings using only ginger, and add in a subtle hint of cinnamon for a more prounouced holiday vibe. And salt, because salt and chocolate. Trust me, it all works.
