Delicious Gluten-Free Muffins: Carrot Banana Muffins Recipe

As a rule, both unfortunate and challenging, I don’t eat traditional bread or pasta. This was a difficult dietary transition and I would call myself more of a reluctant gluten-avoider than gluten-free. I avoid these things because I don’t feel all that well when I eat them, but I do eyeball fabulous looking pastries and muffins every now and again more »

True Food cookbook | Dianna Bonny Photography

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that my curiosity leads me down strange roads in search of healing nutritional food and beverages. This is the result of the ruthless toll stress took on my body and my own lack of knowledge at the time. Had I been better informed, I might have spared more »

Healing Raw Food Experiments and Cashew Recipes

A couple of summer’s ago, one of my boys had terrible stomach problems. Considering everything that had happened during the past year, it wasn’t surprising and I attributed it to stress. I took him to my doctor, who is a super sleuth, and although she could find no physical reasons for the pain, she ran some allergy tests and referred more »

Healthy, Healing Kale Chips Recipes

I had the misfortune of purchasing a bag of Kale chips at Whole Foods once — nacho cheese flavored, I believe. The whole family was disgusted. I don’t think kale stores very well, even in those super sonic, air-tight, space shuttle bags. As hearty as those leaves may seem, they are not meant for prolonged shelf life. I deposited kale more »

Simple, Good Food: Japanese Meatballs And Korean Slaw

I have been cooking simple, good food for a friend who is facing a health challenge. She hasn’t yet connected the dots between eating well and health, something I see as essential.

Brain Health: Counter-Acting Chronic Stress After Loss

  I did not anticipate the stress that comes with adjusting to life after a traumatic loss. Loss throws us into a state of uncertainty, often evoking fear of the unknown, and unchecked fear can lead to the hormonal stress response, ultimately placing an extraordinary burden on the body and brain. I recently learned that once our bodies are hijacked, more »

Quinoa Bruschetta

I attended a Goddess Gathering this week and was asked to bring an appetizer. It’s a funny thing when you get out of the habit of cooking! I used to have recipe ideas memorized and know just which cookbooks to peruse, but on this day, my usual repertoire was rather illusive. Short on time, I knew I had cooked quinoa more »

Enhancing the Benefits of Juicing: Green Juice Recipe

I have become enamored with the mind+body connection, as well as the nutrition+healing equation. As I reflect back on my experience, I see that if I had treated my body like a sacred vessel and fortified it, I might not have been so vulnerable to the cascade of hormonal chemicals and chaos of outside forces. As a result, I continue more »

This is a holiday reprise because so many people wrote to me raving about it last year. Thought I would share it again in case you have to bring something delicious to share at the Thanksgiving party. I can’t possibly find my way to one good reason why I was standing in Target in early November surrounded by Christmas décor, while more »
