Spring Vegetable Primavera over Mung Bean Noodles

Spring Veggie Primavera

Hello Friends!  It has been a while since I posted on here, and I’m sorry about that.  It’s been a whirlwind spring filled with leading the Spring Refresh & Renew: 10 Days of Clean Eating, co-facilitating Living Whole Redwoods: An Immersion Retreat in Self-Care, and opening my new Boston office space.  It has all been wonderful, but my kitchen … [Read more...]

Simple Homemade Kimchi

Simple Homemade Kimchi

If you've been a One Beet reader for a while, you know I'm passionate about the health benefits of fermented foods.  They are so essential to effective digestion, strong immunity, healthy skin, and even mood regulation.  I like to eat some type of fermented food each day, and I recommend that many of my clients do the same. Making my own … [Read more...]

Grilled Peach and Arugula Salad

Grilled Peach and Arugula Salad

There is something magical about summer nights.  Seriously.  Everything tastes better, looks more beautiful, and seems more fun.  I'm lucky to live in a city apartment that has a wonderful deck overlooking the rooftops and trees below.  It's one of the best things about our apartment, and part of what makes city-living doable for me.  I spend hours … [Read more...]

Farmer’s Market Radishes with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Radishes with Cilantro Lime Sauce

It all started with these beauties calling my name at the farmer's market.  I mean how could I resist?  Radishes are one of the first early summer vegetables to hit the markets in Boston and they are haltingly beautiful in their deep jewel tones.  Of course I had to buy all three bunches and then get to work developing a delicious recipe that lets … [Read more...]

Asian Greens with Ginger Garlic Sauce

Asian Greens

I'm such a fan of Asian greens.  They have a tendency to be overshadowed by their ever-popular cousin kale, but I think they deserve their own spot in the nutrient-dense limelight.  My father shares my opinion and always grew a wide variety of Asian greens, like bok choy and tatsoi, in our garden while I was growing up.  He used to tell me that the … [Read more...]

Green Olive + Preserved Lemon Tapenade

Green Olive and Preserved Lemon Tapanade

You know how sometimes things are just so delicious you want to eat them straight from the bowl with a big spoon?  This is one of those things.  I made this as a topping for some freshly grilled fish, but we ended up eating about half of it scooped onto crackers while we were cooking.  It is so good that you’ll look for any excuse to eat this … [Read more...]

Double Stuffed Pesto Mushrooms

Double Stuffed Mushrooms with Pesto

As you know, I'm freakishly obsessed with mushrooms at the moment.  They were never one of my favorite foods growing up, so I'm having a bit of a mushroom renaissance.  Now that I've realized I love them, I just can't get enough.  And it doesn't hurt that I now fully understand all of their nutritional benefits - immune-boosting and cancer-fighting … [Read more...]

Veggie Lover’s Pizza

Veggie Lover's Pizza

Healthy pizzas are one of my favorite go-to meals.  They get a bad reputation for being filled with cheese and unhealthy ingredients, but in fact they can be an excellent vegetable delivery vehicle (particularly good for picky eaters!).  This pizza is overflowing with veggies, built on a whole wheat crust, and uses very little, if any, cheese. … [Read more...]
