What it Takes

Oct 20, 2018

An essay from Lauren’s forthcoming book, Restoring Your Immunity   “Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue constantly. ~ Maya Angelou There was a period of my life I lived out as a fearful, exhausted and overwhelmed woman. You can learn more about her in my post, Developing Purpose. When reflecting on what it took for me to transform to the woman I am today, three qualities come to mind.…

A bowl of Miso soup

An adaption of Mark Bittman’s Loaded Miso

Oct 20, 2018

This soup is so nutrient dense yet simple it certainly belongs in your weekly lineup through the cold months ahead. I was introduced to miso soup by my German homeopath one long winter when, after a bout of bronchitis, I could not regain my strength. I clearly remember my search for miso in Germany brought me to a back alley herbalist shop in Heidelberg. The scoop of paste I purchased provided many nourishing bowls of soup, aiding my recovery. While…

Developing Purpose

Oct 13, 2018

An essay from Lauren’s forthcoming book, Restoring Your Immunity   If we wish to live well in the world, not just amble along through life without any examination of our being, then we must engage in the effort to find meaning in our lives. —Eido Frances Carney What I have learned personally and in my work as a family health coach is that change requires motivation, and motivation must be supported by a purpose.

Mushroom-Spinach Soup With Cinnamon, Coriander and Cumin

Oct 13, 2018

Here’s my take on this yummy mushroom soup that appeared in a New York Times recent fall soup feature. I love the challenge of taking on conventional recipes and creating a vegan/gluten-free version and this one is no exception. Although I rarely pass up a mushroom recipe, this one has a combination of cinnamon, coriander, and cumin that totally caught my attention. Ingredients 6 tablespoons coconut oil or spread 1 ¼ pounds mixed mushrooms (such as cremini, oyster, chanterelles and…

Lauren’s Vegan White Bean Chili

Oct 5, 2018

I have been obsessing over the creation of this recipe all week. To be honest, I’m not sure I’ve ever had white bean chili, but somehow the concept worked its way into my imagination. Could it have been the unusual streak of grey, watery skies in Austin, the cans of cannellini beans stacked in my pantry or my anticipation of a loosely planned Saturday with plenty of time for play in the kitchen? Not really sure – but whatever the…

Restoring Immunity from the Inside Out

Oct 4, 2018

An essay from Lauren’s forthcoming book, Restoring Your Immunity   Wisdom isn’t something you can “do” or “make happen”—it’s there in all of us. By becoming more familiar with that space within ourselves and trusting our own instincts more fully, we can learn to apply this quality of discriminating wisdom in everyday life. —Andy Puddicombe Those who find my work have been on a quest, most have tried literally everything out there with the hope of resolving their symptoms. Upon…

By becoming more familiar with that space within ourselves and trusting our own instincts more fully, we can learn to apply this quality of discriminating wisdom in everyday life. —Andy Puddicombe Those who find my work have been on a quest, most have tried literally everything out there with the hope of resolving their symptoms. Upon arrival they are generally in one of two states: certain that THIS is the Holy Grail of Healing, or wise to that fact that there is no magic solution and are ready to work on themselves from the inside out.…
