Desiree and Steph discuss the (2 year!) process of writing a cookbook, and practices to balance work, life, and family through it all. Desiree is a self-proclaimed introvert, and shares her tips for managing stress and anxiety and how she finds space to recharge.


“My 30s were a grind, and I really feel like I clawed my way to where I am now. I am really looking forward to releasing that in the next decade.  I want to find the flow. I don’t want to achieve less, I don’t want to give up on the dreams that I have, but I think there is another way to do it.”


Desiree’s 3 tips to ‘Eat More Plants’:

  1. Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables
  2. Eat more beans.
  3. Start your day with a smoothie.
