Green. It Does A Body Good

Adding greens at every meal is certainly doing my body good!

I find that adding root vegetables to my greens in order to balance out the contrasting energies of the two foods keeps me from feeling spacey and scattered.

For a lot of people cooking greens seems too overwhelming to bother with, but there are many ways of including greens at every meal, it just takes a little practice...and a good teacher.

I am currently taking new clients!

I offer a customized Culinary Nutrition Program designed to help my clients create sustainable changes to the way they think about food and nourishment.

Sweet Morning Greens

I made a promise to myself that I would try to start eating greens at every meal. The thing that I notice most is how much energy I have throughout the afternoon eating this way...No need for caffeine! Because batch cooking is the key to eating well for us, this time of year I generallly have some apples baked off for applesauce. Recently I had some that never made it into the blender over the weekend so I decided to chop them up to add them to my morning greens. I started the greens off in a little coconut oil and added the chopped baked apples and a little water as the greens started to wilt. Once cooked to my liking I turned the heat off and added dried (apple juice sweetened) cranberries, shredded unsweetened coconut, and some chopped walnuts. Magnificent! 

Snow Days

Its Finally Winterlike!

I've had lots of time to rest and enjoy my husband and our home these last few weeks and I am grateful to be living this really swell life. 

 

Chocolate Avocado Cookies with Maple Coconut Frosting

Avocado creamed with a little maple syrup, an egg, coconut oil and vanilla in the blender combined with almond meal, ground chia, cinnamon, cacao, baking soda and salt makes a really nice cookie.

Melted coconut butter with maple syrup, vanilla and salt as a frosting makes these little guys feel sinful.

1/4 cup maple syrup

1-2 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups almond meal

1 cup cacao powder

Some Simple Tips


People always ask me if I write meal plans and my standard answer is No! I feel that by moving away from rigid recipes and carefully plotted plans we often find a more intuitive way to prepare our food which ends up serving us better in the long run. An easy approach is to keep these simple tips in mind and don't fret over the details of it all.

January Apple Sauce Superfood Sundae

1/14/16

As I sit all cozy and warm after a crispy walk around the property line this morning I am Thankful for all of the many blessings bestowed on us this past year. We have had some big life changes and have overcome many a challenge but we've both grown hardier through the struggle. I look ahead at this new calendar year and see incredible growth and prosperity in store. Progress before perfection. 

This Year I Choose To Live With Intention Rather Than Impulse
