Flower Food + Jalapeño Salmon Tacos

Flower Food is a CBD cooking oil company. As of now they offer Rosemary Garlic Oil and CoCo Loco, a coconut oil blend (MY FAVE). If you’re new to cooking with cannabis, this is a great place to start if you want to enter the realm of greatness.


CBD is all relaxation without intoxication and is one of the most found chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more famous molecule THC, CBD is completely non-psychoactive. So don’t expect to get “high” off of this organic chemical just enjoy the chill vibes one drop at a time.

Follow your passion with no regrets! Feat. Cody Huff.

A meaningless life is a wasted one. People are subject to money and fame, but what about purpose? I rather die knowing I left a lasting impression on a life, than to be known for nothing or a tabloid headline. I knew I was thinking right when an old schoolmate from San Diego, Lewis middle school to be exact, contacted me. From there, the girl power grew, and a common understanding amongst two different worlds collided on one account: following our passions with no regrets.  

Cody Huff is an artist. She inspires me because she doesn’t double think, she just goes! Something we all fall short on. Taking a leap of faith can be scary, but usually in faith, is so rewarding! Here is what the art muse herself had to say in a dialogue with me:

I knew to make 2017 exciting and meaningful I wanted to collaborate with people who were following their passion. I’ve been checking out your boldness on social media and decided to reach out. Also, I wanted to test out a new subject matter, so it was an easy decision to reach out. I’ve been vibe-ing on the phrase ‘no question, no problem’. Which to me means, when you want to do something, don’t over think it and/or talk yourself out of it. Go for it immediately and be comfortable with whatever the outcome is. Don’t let your perfectionist side rule your life by fear of failure. Also, it seems when you go for it with enthusiasm the Universe has your back. -Cody Huff

This is the beautiful artwork she created using the essentials of 2017 and the trendy veggies and tasty eats of today. Check them out below.

We all could use this courage from time to time, so sharing this with my street team is something I’m committed to do. I hope this reaches you and pushes you to go after what you love, and never hesitate to follow your passion. Follow Cody for more amazing artwork and inspiring adventures in life: @codychuff. Have  an amazing day, go do something great!

Girl, You got this! [Feat. FarmBox + @ByLisaLinh]

When I created my blog, I had so many reasons behind it. Outside of the fact that I love food so much, I know other people do too, but not everyone knows how to cook. Some doubt themselves, some don’t have time to cook, or feel they lack the imagination to think of or create recipes. While others just don’t have energy. The list can go on, but whatever the case may be, you always should give yourself a chance to try (message).

Today there are so many services to help with the excuses that people come up with. Don’t have time to shop? FarmBox. Don’t have any recipes in mind? Street+Spice, Pinterest, or the thousands of cookbooks that exist out there.  So give yourself a chance to be great, because I know you can be, trust!

This scenario became a reality when my friend and current creative partner, Lisa Linh of By Lisa Linh lifestyle blog, came to me needing some recipe inspo. She was given a FarmBox and needed some pairing insight. Claiming she had no skills in the kitchen, I created a quick and simple recipe that was both delicious and nutritious. Her ingredients were:

  • yellowtail (tuna)

  • carrots

  • green beans

  • nectarines

  • salad

  • ginger pear jam

  • fresh parsley

Check out her post and her take on the recipe! Feel free to try it out and see how much of a kitchen queen you are too! Didn’t she do amazing! Makes me so proud, See girl, YOU GOT THIS!
