Black Bean and Veggie Noodles

Black Bean and Veggie Pasta

  Even before I eliminated gluten from my diet I preferred to eat quinoa pasta.  I love the taste, texture, and high protein content.  I often recommend it to clients looking to upgrade the nutritional value of their dishes (or get their toddlers to eat something healthier!).  I'm still a committed quinoa pasta fan, but black bean pasta is … [Read more...]

Spicy Red Lentils with Tomatoes and Lime

Spicy Red Lentils

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – lentils should be part of your life! They are packed with nutrients, ridiculously easy to make, and delicious every time. I keep me pantry stocked with red, black, and green lentils, and end up using them at least once per week. For this recipe red lentils work best because we’re looking for a soupy … [Read more...]

Italian White Beans with Kale and Tomatoes

Italian White Beans with Kale and Tomatoes

I'm a sucker for Italian recipes.  Maybe it was studying there in college, or spending so much time cooking there on the big trip. Whatever it was, my love of Italian food has stuck with me and always finds it's way into my cooking.

Veggie Soup Stock

I had the pleasure of teaching a class on making homemade herbal soup stocks at the Herbstalk Wintergreen Market this past weekend (here are some fun photos from the event!).  I loved teaching this class because making my own stocks and broths is seriously one of my favorite kitchen activities.  There is something so meditative about saving scraps … [Read more...]

Pickled Raw Garlic

Pickled Garlic

This time of year is tough on the immune system.  The late nights, sweet treats, and cold temperatures can wreck havoc on our bodies.  It is such an important time to practice a prevention routine.  One of my favorite prevention foods is raw garlic.  It's a total immune-boosting powerhouse!  But unfortunately, not many people can stomach eating … [Read more...]

My Year at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition

My IIN Experience
