The Dark Days of Winter

The Dark Days of Winter

I create aMYLK because I Love it. It ignites my passion and creativity, soothes my soul and nourishes my body. I'm attracted to it and it's attracted to me. We feed each other. I don't make aMYLK to make a profit (though that's nice and certainly necessary). I make aMYLK because it is my art. I make it for me and it delights me that you like it, too.

How Far We've Come - Reflections from a Mylk Maid

How Far We've Come - Reflections from a Mylk Maid

Last weekend was our biggest sales weekend to date and I am filled with immense gratitude. As we approach wrapping up our 6th full year in business next month, I find myself reflecting on how far we have come.

 

When I started aMYLK, I barely had two pennies to rub together, was a single mom with four children to provide for independently and no home to call our own. For five of the last 6 years I didn't even have my own bedroom. I cannot explain to you WHY on Earth I decided to...


Creating Beautiful Abundance

Creating Beautiful Abundance

In our busy, social media crazed world, we can easily fall into the habit of comparison and self-criticism.

In fact, I'd argue that the habit of self-criticism (and the criticism of others) can lead us to disease. 

My Buckwheat Pancake Recipe Featuring aMYLK!

My Buckwheat Pancake Recipe Featuring aMYLK!

I'm popping up at a new market this weekend! You'll find us Saturday at Portland Farmers Market at PSU, Beaverton Farmers Market, Hollywood Farmers Market, and Portland Farmers at King Elementary on Sunday.
 
I'm abundant is the new mylk this month!  It's a fall favorite and probably my superest of Super aMYLKs. It's got turmeric, ashwagandha, pea protein, 24 k gold flakes, camu camu berry, lucuma fruit, and tocotrienols. Tocotrienols are packed with vitamin E. If you haven't tried it, don't let the gold or the yellow throw you off. It's truly delicious. ...


Why I Don't Make Oat Milk

Why I Don't Make Oat Milk

Early last week I was at Costco picking up some basics and I stumbled upon Califia Farm's Pumpkin Spice Oat Milk beverage. I got a little mad when I read the nutrition facts panel and filmed a quick video, which I posted to Instagram. 

Everyone always asks me why I don't make oat milk. I've been reluctant to write about it and rain on everyone's parade because oat milk seems like such a good choice for both human health and for the environment, but in my opinion, it's not. Keep in mind, I'm not a nutritionist, an MD or a...
