We’ve been waiting patiently and spring is finally here!
To celebrate and transition into spring cooking, try this recipe filled with a lot of seasonal produce like spinach, strawberries, mushrooms, asparagus, garlic and onions (1).
There are a plethora of vegan and veggie burgers choices out there. Vegetable-based, mushroom-based, vegan meat-based, the list of options go on and on.
When I set out to develop this recipe, I wanted to produce something packed with nutrition that tasted delicious. So I combined some of my favorite meat substitutes into one patty!
Have you always wondered how a vegan diet can be kind to you, the planet, and our animal friends? Do you want to hear from others in a community-centric space?

Let’s welcome the new year with a recipe that is all about tradition.
Cooking a pot of black-eyed peas to bring good luck in the new year is a well-known tradition in black southern households, steeped in history and good flavors.
Southern style black-eyed peas, sometimes called Hoppin’ John, are traditionally served with rice, and are often paired with some sort of variation of greens (mustard, collard, etc.) for an added side of financial fortune.
Even though the holiday season may look a bit different this year, you can still bring a little tradition to your dinner table.
Why not serve up a cornerstone to many holiday meals, stuffing and gravy!
“Stuffing” is different everywhere with some people calling it dressing. It may be served in a turkey or as a stand alone casserole side dish for others. No matter how you eat it, stuffing is always a great accompaniment to a holiday spread.
It’s officially squash season, so time to enjoy: acorn, butternut, spaghetti, and pumpkin.

The Yoga District 200 and 500 hour teacher training certification programs, registered by the Yoga Alliance are unique in their emphasis on diversity of teaching styles studied, personal attention, and trauma sensitive yoga. It's no coincidence that Yoga District is regularly voted the leading studio in the nation's capital, and that most of its classes are taught by graduates of its training program. As a full time yoga school, small group trainings are led up to eight times a year by a dedicated faculty including Jasmine Chehrazi, contributor to the Harvard Karma Yoga Project teacher training, teacher training faculty at George Washington University, Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Board Member, Yoga Activist Founder, and Yoga Service Council Advisory Board Member. So take your practice and community involvement to the next level by joining a training. There's a reason why our graduates call the training "transformative."
