I’m about to head out on a much needed vacation with no agenda besides rainforest adventures, surfing, monkey-ing around (literally, I plan on sneaking a pet monkey back to San Diego), beach-bumming and relaxing. I couldn’t be more excited!!

Soon, I’ll be reunited with my amazing little sister, Sarah, who has been studying abroad there since August. Plus, my main man is coming along for all the fun…and the surf, mainly the surf, if we were being honest.

Coconut Curry Eggplant Chips

by Chrissy

Slice.

Rub both sides with coconut oil.
