Veggie Magnifique | posts by Ann

I’m the first to eschew modern convenience in the name of quality, homemade, and… let’s be honest, tech-circumvention. Even if it takes longer. When I was in my early 20s, for example, my old roommate in LA used to gawk at my “old fashioned” ways, i.e. using a handheld can opener instead of an electric ...

It snowed this morning. No biggie. Just the 9th of May, and it’s snowing. Now, I’m told that New Hampshire weather isn’t always this crazy, and that I ought not worry… but as a new mover to this state, obviously I’m raising an eyebrow. I realize that I’m talking about the weather, and before you ...

panda yoga for bedtime

I didn’t use to enjoy relaxing yoga classes. I was all about the power and the flow, and most of all, feeling transformed and noodle-y after an intense yogic experience. Relaxing yoga? No, merci. One day, back when I lived in LA, I ended up in a random beginner class at YogaWorks. The class I’d ...

What-i-eat-in-a-day-quarantine

veggie magnifique yoga yin anxiety

Just looking around, life seems pretty normal. Spring is slowly but surely trickling in, and the dog next door still barks at ungodly hours. Every day you still brush your teeth, put your laundry to wash, and make your favorite tea in the morning. Babies are still being born, and words are being written. But ...

cozy-cocoon-at-home

“Are you relishing it yet?” A little voice whispered in my head the other day as I sat on the couch, tea in hand. Homebody that I am, my answer to myself was a resounding “Yes. Yes, I am relishing this moment of seclusion.” Look, I’m not a hermit, but man… does it ever feel ...

the-friendly-kitchen-paris

I gotta be honest… I do miss Paris. I felt more at home in Paris than anywhere I’ve ever lived. Even where I grew up just never felt like home, or a place of belonging. I felt foreign. Strange, even. But, oh, Paris… Paris fit. In Paris you’re encouraged to soak up life. You’re encouraged to ...
