Oatmeal: Culinary Blank Canvas

Oatmeal serves as the perfect base in which to bring out your inner artist – don’t you think? Recently, I’ve been inspired by the array of sweet and savory combinations of dishes that can be created with so humble and simple of a grain: the oat. Oatmeal is not only nutritious and satisfying, but also a beautiful culinary work of art and an affordable meal year-round. Color, texture and taste can be delicately crafted in endless variations – think miso, sliced radishes, cilantro, a poached farm egg and toasted seeds for a savory explosion. Or a nourishing sweet version like the one our founder, Hayley, brought for the team one morning, filled with playful toppings and infusions like nut butter, cacao powder, currants, and persimmon.


Embrace the Slower Season

How are you all holding up this winter? Hopefully, staying warm, cozy, and healthy all around, but also savoring the delights of this darker, inward season. As we continue to gain more hours of sunlight and parts of the country experience unusually warm weather, it may be tempting to jump into a spring mindset and to start launching new projects and ideas! However, we are still two thirds of the way into our natural cycle of winter (from the solstice on Dec 21 until the vernal equinox on March 20) and it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace this slower, more mindful period of the year.


Love Notes + Healthy DIY Snacks

Love is in the air! We’re soon approaching Valentines Day, which in this country typically brings to mind the gifting of red roses, chocolate (in any form!) and romantic cards. Here at ecopiggy, we take this holiday less seriously as we believe that love should be sprinkled throughout the year, in unexpected ways! We enjoy surprising each other with nourishing treats, homemade body products, candles, crafts and lots of gratitude! It’s all about the act of giving freely and lighting up others’ lives.


Year of the eco{PIG}gy

Kung hei fat choy! Another round of New Years blessings to you all. Indeed, today marks a new beginning in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac and fortuitously, 2019 is considered the “Year of the Pig.” Or, as we’d like to officially rename it, “Year of the eco{PIG}gy.”
