She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Creamy Cashew Milk Recipe



As I've reduced my sugar intake over the last year and a half I've enjoyed exploring alternative ways to get my "treat" fix, and cashew milk is my current favorite.

Nut milk can be enjoyed straight, used to soak oats, added to smoothies or coffee, and more. The leftover nut pulp can be made into all kinds of sweets and savories like nut cream or cheese, truffles, and icing.

Raw nut milk can be pricey store-bought but it's simple to make at home. Cashews are especially versatile with a mild flavor and creamy texture, but feel free to use almonds too.

RECIPE

1 1/2 cups raw cashews
5 cups water
2 tablespoons maple syrup, honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Optional spices: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom

-Cover cashews with water and soak for 12 hours or overnight
-Drain soaking water
-Combine soaked cashews with five cups water, puree in a blender until creamy and smooth
-Strain cashew milk through a sieve or cheesecloth, discard the nut pulp or save it for later*
-Add more water if you like a thinner consistency, add back some of the nut pulp if you like more texture
-Spice and sweeten cashew milk to taste
-Chill and drink up!



*Make a creamy lemon topping from the leftover nut pulp: add a few teaspoons of lemon juice, a pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup water then blend for another minute or two until super smooth. Treat your homemade nut cream like sour cream and add a dollop to potatoes, eggs, or other morning hashes.
