Beyond the Kitchen

Life Lately:

We shot another video for my partnership with Whole Foods Market for the Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook! I am so excited about this and can’t wait to share more about it SOON.

Whole Foods Market X Lexi's Clean Kitchen We went to Festival on the Farm here in MA, where we heard some fabulous music and spent time with a good friend! How large is this instrument compared to petite little me? It’s called a sousaphone.Festival at the FarmMy mom came in this week for some final wedding planning (and I picked up my dress!!!!!) because it’s literally 2 weeks away! A combination of work deadlines and relaxation (is that an oxymoron?) are on the agenda! 

P.S. My CSA haul is getting larger and larger.

csa-week4Also I’ve started a new morning routine where I wake up an hour earlier than usual and mediate and make some me time — no cell phone or thoughts of work allowed. It’s been wonderful. I highly recommend a morning routine, whether that’s an hour or 15 minutes.

 Quote of the Week:

“The principle of nowness is very important to any effort to establish an enlightened society. You may wonder what the best approach is to helping society and how you can know that what you are doing is authentic and good. The only answer is nowness. The way to relax, or rest the mind in nowness, is through the practice of meditation. In meditation you take an unbiased approach. You let things be as they are, without judgment, and in that way you yourself learn to be. —CHÖGYAM TRUNGPA RINPOCHE”
