And the journey has begun โค we left Dallas last night at midnight to start our drive to LA ๐ŸŒด We are also driving our own truck (yep lol) a 22 foot ๐Ÿšš with our car hitched on the back. Never done anything like this before ๐Ÿ˜… (sharing more on IG stories!) but we did hire packers to help us, and I have to tell you the sweetest story! 
__
We initially had a truck that was too small so they patiently waited for Michael to run and get the larger one. They helped us late into the evening, then they left for the night. Michael, my mama and I were still packing and finishing up at midnight and we were just about to try and get the car hitched to the truck (mind you it was so dark out!) and all of a sudden one of the guys who helped us pack, came riding up to our house asking if we needed help. I couldn't believe it. I knew without a doubt God sent this sweet man to help us literally  at the exact time we needed someone. We were exhausted from packing and about to drive 7 hours. And my mama and I were no help trying to guide michael as he drove this giant truck backwards to get the hitch on. Michael was leaving something behind that this man could use for his other job so he had come back to get it from our alley/back driveway. We were in the front of the house and he heard the truck and rode around, jumped out and immediately started helping us. At midnight AND after helping us all day. It brought tears to my eyes. Such kindness and a sweet gift from God before heading out. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Who else loves a good slow cooker chili?! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป๐ŸŒถ especially on a crisp fall day ๐Ÿ‚Which we've finally had some fall weather here in dallas!

I created this delicious & healthy turkey chili recipe that provides a great meal full of protein, fiber and a variety of vitamins. Itโ€™s a flavorful combination of sweet and spicy, sweet from the sweet potato and that little kick from the jalapeรฑo ๐Ÿ’ฅ Chili powder and fresh oregano add even more flavor, making this a dish you will hopefully have on repeat throughout the upcoming fall and winter seasons ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿsharing this recipe on @glitterguide.

P.S. Those are homemade chips in the background! Made with @sietefoods almond flour tortillas ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

It was just a little over two weeks ago, I was sitting here at this beautiful table in the most incredible place with new friends I felt like I had known a lifetime. As many of you know, I was at a food photography workshop in Napa with @ful.filled & @bromabakery. 
__
My heart aches to hear of the fires and devastation in Napa, Sonoma & the surrounding areas. ๐Ÿ˜” and we keep waking up to sad news after sad news. Major destruction and lives lost almost every day. Part of a bible verse has been on repeat in my head - "Let us not become weary in doing good" and that is what I'm clinging to. We can't stop these things from happening and truly most of the time I feel completely helpless. But I can pray, I can try to help in anyway I can and I can aim to serve & love others every day โค we have no idea what others are going through, so we must jump at any chance we get to be kind and help one another as much as we can. ๐Ÿ’—

Sweet Sunday morning โ›…๏ธ y'all, it's been a rough couple of days.

So, I find it pretty funny I just posted a national taco day post AND it basically implied no salads today - just tacos ๐Ÿ˜‚ BUT it's also #nationalkaleday and I have to give some love to Kale ๐ŸŒฟ poor Kale! We all know it's not going to get nearly as much love as tacos today!
__
I really do love kale - and I want to give you a tip if you don't already know! The key to a great kale salad is to massage the kale. Yes! Seriously ๐Ÿค— it may sound funny - but that's the term. Just pour about 1 teaspoon of olive oil into your hands and rub together to coat. Then begin to massage the kale for about 2 to 3 minutes. This makes the kale easier to digest and makes it much more flavorful in my opinion!

It can't get much better for Kale today! It's own holiday and a massage! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ’—

For reals. This is one of my absolute favorite recipes Iโ€™ve created to date! I am SO excited to share these Almond Butter Cup Brownies with you! Finally!! ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ’— I know I promised them a few weeks ago, but life got cray. 
__
In addition to being totally delicious, they are #glutenfree, #grainfree, #dairyfree (basically all the frees;) and are made with cacao powder, which is raw chocolate and a superfood. Link in profile for recipe!

I also have to be honest. It's pretty hard posting a brownie photo right now given everything going on in the world. As you all are, my heart is just really sad. But I thought that maybe this would bring a little joy & sweetness to your day. At least that's my hope. I also wanted to point out what it says on the milk bottle - YOU are loved! I pray that you feel so loved today and everyday. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ xo
