If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.
Q:Hey Fran, Hey! haha I love you so much. Everyday I strive to practice healthier lifestyle habits because of you. My question is, what advice would you give to someone who wants to start a blog. I am in the process of writing some articles, but I honestly do not know where to get started in terms of publishing a site of my own. Any advice would be wonderful! You are truly my BLOGspiration=)
Thank you for the sweet energy <3 I would suggest just starting the site, as if you already had a huge market. Even one person reading your work is amazing. And if you’re truly insightful, that person will share the link somewhere or tell someone else and everything will grow way faster than you expected!
A major boost would be writing for your favorite sites, too. Submit articles to ALL of them and make sure they link back to your site with every article they post. That will help you build some cool traffic and readers.
Hope that helps! Good luck <3

A question we get a lot is, “What oils are best (and healthiest) for cooking?” So we thought it would be a great idea to break down the foodie science between cooking oils and smoke points, so you guys can all be healthier chefs in your kitchens.
Butternut Squash & Tart Cherry Quinoa
Love & Lemons writes:
The original recipe used couscous but I used quinoa here because it’s the grain I usually have on hand. I tossed it with roasted butternut squash, feta cheese and dried tart cherries for a sweet & tangy pop of flavor. They perfectly balance the warm, savory flavors that are going on here.
While the butternut squash is roasting in the oven, make your dressing. I slightly warm some olive oil and mix in apple cider vinegar, sage, honey and cinnamon. I promise – once you toss the sage in, your kitchen will instantly smell like fall… it’s just so warm and cozy.
