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

It's hard to believe it, but I'm about to graduate from nutrition school!  If you had asked me five years ago what I'd be doing today I never would have imaged it was possible to build a business and life that I love in the world of nutrition.  Food and health were things I was personally passionate about, but who can really turn those into a … [Read more...]

Three Bean Chili

Three Bean Chili

As the weather turns cooler it is so important to eat rich, nutritious, and warming foods. Warming foods can mean both foods that are physically warm, and foods that are filled with warming spices that help warm us on the inside (hot peppers, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, cardamom etc.). This chili fits the bill for both! Not to mention also being … [Read more...]

Nuts & Seeds Granola

Nuts & Seeds Granola

I grew up on granola.  My parents were all about making it from scratch (along with most things) and serving me big heaping bowls for breakfast.  And I loved it!  There is something so comforting in a bowl of granola - all these nutritive and delicious ingredients coming together into a sweet, salty, crunchy extravaganza. I've kept up the family … [Read more...]

Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler

Blueberry Nectarine Cobbler

As you may recall, I'm not much of a baker.  There is way too much measuring and precision, plus most baked goods are filled with not-so-nourishing ingredients.  But this cobbler is my ideal baked dessert - it couldn't be easier, doesn't require any detailed measuring, is filled with healthy whole foods ingredients, and tastes … [Read more...]

Grilled Corn & Tomato Salad

Grilled Corn and Roasted Tomato Salad

I am so head over heels in love with all of the fresh produce in season right now.  Going to the farmer's market is almost overwhelming in its abundance.  There are so many beautiful things calling out to me and asking to be cooked up into late summer deliciousness.  It's a good problem to have! And it reminds me, yet again, how you can make … [Read more...]
