Maple Cinnamon Granola

Maple Cinnamon Granola

Homemade granola is always on hand in my kitchen.  I usually have a few jars in the cabinet and a bag or two in the freezer.  I eat it almost daily. Granola is one of those confusing health foods, because it can be either wildly healthy or pretty terrible for you depending on the ingredients.  I just finished leading a sugar cleanse at one of my … [Read more...]

Lacto-Fermented Green Beans

Lacto-Fermented Green Beans

'Tis the season for pickling!  It is the perfect way to preserve all that beautiful late-summer produce so it can be enjoyed all year long.  Plus, if you're making lacto-fermented pickles you're cultivating beneficial bacteria (probiotics) to give your body a boost in immunity, gut-health, and mood. I'm into pickled vegetables for many reasons. … [Read more...]

Spicy Garlic Kale

Spicy Garlic Kale

'Tis the season of kale!  It is starting to flood the farmers markets, pop-up in weekly CSA farm shares, and be ready for harvesting in the garden.  For me, kale is a year-round vegetable, but there is nothing like getting it fresh at the beginning of the season.  Scoop some up and give this dish a try.  Or keep this in your back pocket for that … [Read more...]

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.
