Guest Editor of The Chalkboard + Muesli
For the month of April I am guest editing Pressed Juicery‘s lifestyle and wellness blog The Chalkboard. I’ll be posting once a week and my first story is all about breakfast. Muesli, to be exact. My friend and beloved LA chef Zoe Nathan agreed to share her recipe for traditional Muesli and I can’t get enough of it. Click over to The Chalkboard to see the whole story and check out the recipe below.
