This is a quick and easy green bean salad that features some crunchy fun toppings and a decadent creamy coconut sauce. I’ve enjoyed making different renditions of it through the holidays including swapping the green beans for asparagus.
Pomegranates are super rich in antioxidants, which protects cells from oxidation, and keeps us from disease and illness. Here’s a little trick to remove the pomegranate seeds; hit the pomegranate with the back of a spoon and the seeds will fly out (caution, it’s a little messy).
Above is one variation to the Festive Green...
When you join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm share there is some inherent risk.
You are at the mercy of the weather, the soil and seed quality, the bugs and other predators, not to mention the knowledge of your farmers and their farmhands.
So, when you receive the bounty of beautiful heirloom (GMO and pesticide free) veggies that we did these past 20 weeks you thank your lucky stars for Jim and Michelle Garman (plus their two young farmhands) of Garman Organic Farm.
Among the culinary delights that we enjoyed this season were New England Pie...
Smooth and tasty, this creamy delicious soup is both hardy and sweet. Made with fennel, carrots, and leek plus warming spices and satisfying coconut milk it is half soup/half dessert by the time you top it with a drizzle of agave nectar and a few toasted pecans.
As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, the temperature drops and the wind picks up it’s natural to start craving more warming, comforting foods to nourish ourselves. Especially for those with a Vata Constitution, it is important to honor that craving and prefer foods that add heat and are naturally...
Crunch. Crunch. Munch. Munch. There was an interesting segment a while back on NPR (National Public Radio) about why humans crave crunchy foods. The theory dates back to millions of years ago when primates ate crunchy insects. If they were crunchy it meant they were fresh. In more recent years humans started to eat plant and vegetable foods that were also crunchy and again, crunchy meant fresh.
Nowadays, crunchy stills means fresh unless, of course, it’s Cookie Crunch cereal or most of the highly processed snack foods available to us. But we’re wising up to that and...
As a tri-doshic system, Ayurveda is based on knowing your mind-body type, or dosha. The three doshas are Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. Once you know your type you can steer yourself towards consuming the foods and living the lifestyle that not only keep your body, mind, and sexy spiritual self in balance, but also ward off brewing illness and disease. Pretty incredible, right?
You can discover your mind-body type by taking my dosha quiz or contact me to schedule your free 15-minute consultation. Even if you haven’t figured out your dosha yet, you can get started today by...
Summer’s nearly swept me off my feet this year. We’re living in a third floor apartment in Newport, RI (gorgeous place, by the way) and my petite kitchen tucked into the eaves is just a perfect oven in and of itself.
Needless to say, the prospect of turning on more heat in the kitchen is tantamount to self masochism and so I’m limiting that…greatly.
So, rather than spending my time in my sweat lodge of a kitchen, I’ve been “cooking” mostly raw foods.
This, by the way is great for ALL doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha) –...
Here’s a last minute brussels sprouts recipe that may be just the perfect new side dish to add in to your traditional Thanksgiving spread. I tried it out last week and it’s the kind of veggie dish that is melt-in-your mouth delicious.
So, without further ado, here’s how it goes (and why it’s so good for you).
After prepared and tossed with olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper, the brussels sprouts are roasted at a high heat. This brings out their natural sugars and caramelizes the outermost leafs. To finish it off toss with toasted...
