Spirit Fire Smoothies

~Adapted by Tanya Renner~ Last weekend I was honored to lead a grace filled weekend retreat at Spirit Fire in Leyden, MA.

Spring Carrot Salad

April 6, 2018

Carrot salad has always been a weeknight standard in the Hubele salad rotation. It’s a quick prep when time is limited and because it only improves with an overnight in the fridge, it makes for a welcome lunch the following day. This Heidi Swanson version however takes carrot salad to the next level and is well…

Summer Salads: Planning One Week At A Time

Jun 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

A raw salad every day, whether it be for lunch or before your evening meal, is an excellent way to increase your veggie intake, alkalize your body, support healthy digestion, and promote optimal elimination.

May 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

So, it’s come to this and I am really not sure if it’s even such a bad thing. I have a confession:  After a beautiful morning swim at Barton Springs pool, I admit I then spent a good portion of my Mother’s Day writing a chapter on the importance of babies pooping on a regular basis. Well, to be exact, the chapter is on the vital role of healthy elimination that begins at birth. I don’t know if I would…

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…
