Fresh Recipes + Wine Pairings

[fa icon="calendar"] May 12, 2017 10:57:35 AM / by Shelley Hopper

We all find joy (and survival) in the little things - whether it's coffee in the mornings, catching up on our DVR after bedtime, enjoying our favorite dessert, slaying a great workout, cooking a new recipe, finding solitude in a yoga class, or curling up at the end of the night with a glass of wine. With #MONTHOFMAMA, we've wanted you to find comfort in your pre-established routine(s), but also encourage you to try new things - new recipes, new workouts, new mindfulness tips, and find new connections with other mamas participating. 

 

Here in our home-office area of San Diego, we are lucky to have so many fun, organic cafes with SO many healthy options. We wanted to bring a few of our favorite recipes from our tables to yours, and teamed up with GOODONYA Organic Cafe to make that happen. But, knowing how much our mamas also love wine and entertaining, we partnered with SECCO Wine Club to share wine pairings with each dish. So, Mama, we've got you the next time you want to host a night out with some California-style cuisine and a little mama juice. (Remember to enjoy responsibly, and we're also huge fans of iced tea, lemonade, and kombucha!)
