Creamy Zoodles with Asparagus and Goat Cheese

This week, I start an 8-week long teacher training program with CorePower Yoga. I’m scared, excited, mostly nervous, and feel very fortunate.

I had all intentions of going up until 4:00 p.m. Yes, 4 p.m., the time I leave work on Wednesdays because I’m too busy too take lunch at noon so I leave an hour … Continue reading Vegetarian Chili
