An Ode to Oaks

Mar 16, 2019

On the 17th of March, just one year ago, we returned from our morning swim at Barton Springs to the sound of chain saws cutting through the quiet of our neighborhood. Across from our Travis Heights bungalow, a team of men was deep into the work of clearing the property of each and every tree. While we knew the house and lot had been sold, we stood with gaping jaws transfixed by this level of destruction. Neighbors gathered, and we…

A Farmer’s Market Salad

Mar 16, 2019

When tender stems of baby broccoli, French breakfast radishes, and gorgeous Russian kale made their appearance last week at the Farmer’s Market, I saw the makings of a perfect spring salad. A big thank you to River Bottom Farms for their commitment to sustainable, organic produce. With ingredients that are this fresh and delicious, all that’s needed is some chopping and a yummy sauce to dress it. While a simple vinaigrette would be perfectly fine, I like to use something…

What Gemmotherapy can do for your Acute Symptoms

Mar 9, 2019

When you face a cold or flu there are a number of options to choose from that are readily available to address your symptoms. I’m sure at one time or another you have experimented with each of these. As a child, the choices for your acute care were based on your parents’ understanding of health, but as an adult, you have more than likely adopted a method of your own. What you might not realize is that how you respond…

Lauren’s Veggieful Tacos

Mar 9, 2019

Yes, this is really another taco recipe – and just weeks after sharing one with pan-roasted Brussels sprouts. If I promise this is it for now, will you give it a try? You really won’t want to miss the ease and practical way to get your veggie quota for the day. Pictured above is how we typically roll on taco night. I roast whatever veggies happen to be leftover from the week, cook a pot of pinto or black beans…

Susan’s Coaching Story

Mar 2, 2019

Individuals I coach each arrive with their own unique agenda which is what keeps my job interesting. Let me introduce you to Susan, a self-proclaimed PBS addict who reads tons of books and works in the natural food industry. Although Susan and I had worked together in the past to support her physical health, this was my first opportunity to coach her. The experience was richly rewarding, mostly due to the commitment to change that she brought to our sessions.…

Lauren’s Weeknight Curry

Mar 2, 2019

Hands down the easiest and most satisfying midweek meal at my house is a Thai Curry. The beauty of curry is that you can use almost any leftover vegetables in your fridge, and with the right sauce, and a bit of steamed rice it will be a hit. Pictured above is this week’s curry of sweet peppers, onions, baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, and a few fingerling potatoes. If you’re new to this, you might want to begin with a…

You really won’t want to miss the ease and practical way to get your veggie quota for the day. Pictured above is how we typically roll on taco night. I roast whatever veggies happen to be leftover from the week, cook a pot of pinto or black beans and serve it all alongside some salsa and avocado. If there are cheese lovers at your table you might try Kite Hill Ricotta or any of these choices from Parmella Creamery. As for tortillas, there are so many options these…

Although Susan and I had worked together in the past to support her physical health, this was my first opportunity to coach her. The experience was richly rewarding, mostly due to the commitment to change that she brought to our sessions. From our first meeting, Susan expressed the overwhelming sensation of being stuck. She felt stuck in a life routine that was no longer satisfying and yet believed she was unable to make changes to provide relief. Susan made it clear…

Pictured above is this week’s curry of sweet peppers, onions, baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, and a few fingerling potatoes. If you’re new to this, you might want to begin with a standard base of onions, peppers, and mushrooms and build from there depending on what’s available. My curry game immensely improved when I discovered this Thai and True Curry Paste available online. They have several options to choose from, but yellow…
