Joyful Cooking, Healthier Living


Clean Soul Kitchen and Nicole Aandahl props and mentions.


Brooklyn Bicycle Company - Community Spotlight

"What are you most passionate about? What passions drove you to your chosen field?

That we take a step back, breathe deep, and appreciate all the gifts in life, even as difficult as that may be some times.  I really want people to see that living a heathy life doesn’t mean rigidity or restriction, and that no body shape or weight is the single indicator of health or beauty. And clean eating means knowing where your food comes from and that it was grow or raised with care, and avoiding processed or “fake” food."

La Boite NYC- Featured recipe

"This recipe from reader Nicole Aandahl show how easy it is to make a great meal where spices take the spotlight. She uses the shrimp shells to make a rich stock, and finishes the dish with plenty of butter, lemon, and bright herbs."


Pocket Farms - newletter

"This morning was perfect for harvesting your delicious veggies. The sun is out, the breeze is blowing, and green garlic is in your harvest box! We have had a couple additions to the list this week, thanks to Second Spring Farm and White Hall Farm. These are two farms that are close by and have equal growing standards to Pocket Farms. I hope you enjoy their additions."
