Heidi Swanson's Harira

February 9, 2018

We’ve had a string of cold gloomy days which had me searching for a slightly spicy comfort dish for dinner. When that’s the case it is always Heidi Swanson I turn to for help. It was delicious the first time round and even better as leftovers for Saturday lunch. Here is my adaptation from from…

Happy Hour Hubele Style

May 9, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you’ve been following along these past weeks, you’ll know I’m getting into the final weeks of a fast approaching self-imposed book deadline. This phase always feels to me like uphill cycling, the kind I like to avoid. Yes, it’s fantastic when you reach the top, but the mental effort of not being able to quite see the top from here can be excruciating. And, truth be told, it was a challenging writing week both emotionally and physically from early…

May 2, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you haven’t heard already, I am full swing into my next book on Gemmotherapy support for babies and young children.

Apr 18, 2017 | 0 Comments

If you could prepare only one more soup before spring weather turns to summer this would be my suggestion. I turned to Heidi Swanson for help when an abundance of gorgeous spring leeks filled my weekly CSA and I was unable to keep up by merely adding them to sauces and curries. Heidi’s recipes have never disappointed and this one has been elevated to even new heights on our family scale. Be prepared for something special and make enough to…

Breaking The Fast

Mar 21, 2017 | 1 Comment

I’m often asked by friends, family, and colleagues what is the first and most important recommendation I have to those who wish to improve their overall health. The answer comes easy and quick: change their breakfast! The path to health is found by tapping into the body’s innate abilities to clean and heal and, unfortunately, most of what we do on a daily basis works against those important functions. My suggestion is to start the day right and build from…
