I could go on FOREVER about the robust beauty and gentle, powerful feminine magic contained within Schizandra Berries. These berries are true adaptogens, helping our bodies adapt and regulate when faced with all types of stress. I’ll write more about them in future posts, but for now I must get this simple, sexy recipe out…

Skillet Saturdays: Kale, Cabbage, Cranberry, Pine Nut & Blue Cheese

I’ve fallen so far behind this week and now Skillet Saturday is Skillet Monday! I apologize to anyone who has been waiting 😦 I moved over the weekend and I was overwhelmed with how amazing my friends are! It took no time at all and I feel so blessed. I finally got to bed sometime after midnight…

Skillet Saturdays: Red Pepper Egg-In-A-Hole

Well, the past month feels like a whole year. I’ve experienced the full range of emotions and although I’m still processing it all, I feel steadier, though also humbled and more gentle through it. I’ve been reminded of the blessing of family, the fragility of life, and the importance of health and honoring my body…

Skillet Saturdays: Brussels Sprout, Potato and Bacon Hash

I hope that everyone had a lovely holiday and ate lots of delicious food! I developed this dish on Saturday morning, went to an awesome restorative yoga class and then watched Netflix all evening and now this post is a day late! Sorry guys! I guess I’m in that slow, calm mindset that seems to…

Skillet Saturdays: Chickpeas, Kale & Mushrooms

This is another example of finding three or four ingredients that you have available and, very simply, making a skillet. Spice blends are awesome to have on hand because you get balanced and developed flavors without having to think too hard or measure and prepare. This one has a generous sprinkle of Madras curry spice…

Skillet Saturdays: Rainbow Veggies

Today’s skillet is very simple and so beautiful! A standard-sized cast-iron skillet is perfect for two or three people but you could definitely make a bigger version in a casserole pan or an extra-large skillet. I LOVE color! In my environment,  and definitely in my food. Having a wide range of color pigmentation in your…

Skillet Saturdays: Gluten-Free Banana Bread!

I’ve been gluten-free for a couple of years now, and apart from the holiday cheats or the odd organic sourdough sandwich or Jamaican Ginger Beer, I remain pretty true to it. However, I don’t support a lot of the ingredients in gluten-free alternatives (non-organic soy and/or corn, chemical additives, etc) and I also don’t like…

Chai Quinoa Granola

Try this! It’s just mixing ingredients together, stirring in oil and syrup and putting it in the oven. This granola is great for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or I even have it for dinner sometimes when I’m really hungry and get home from work too late to cook. This recipe has healthy fats, proteins, slow-burning…

Skillet Saturdays: Huevos Rancheros {Gluten-free}

Huevos Rancheros, or “Rancher’s Eggs” is a bright and vibrant, one pan meal perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner and a lovely, easy option when cooking for guests. I’ve always loved Mexican-inspired foods and spices. When I was a little girl my special birthday dinner was always tacos, although back then I was the pickiest…

Skillet Saturdays: Chai Spiced Nuts & Oats

Ah, what a special treat this Saturday’s skillet is. It’s very easy to make and, again, with only one pan. The herbs/spices in Chai are stimulating and vitalizing, while calming and mentally clarifying too. These herbs are also warming, promote circulation and may increase metabolism, making Chai a lovely blend for fall and winter. I…

Skillet Saturdays: Yam, Potato & Kale Hash

Now that it’s officially fall, I find myself drawn to warming, robust, hearty foods. I believe in intuitive eating; if the motivation is pure (not chemical or addiction related), I believe that following the lead of our bodies can guide us to health. In the fall, transitioning to nourishing, warming foods and beverages prepares our…
