Day 7 Buddha Bowl

O.K., this Buddha Bowl might be a stretch as it contains fish and miso soup, but I’ve taken liberties with all the other Buddha Bowls, so what’s one more? First I steamed some collard greens. Collard greens are so good for you and are very versatile. I actually use them for the Dolmas that I… Read More

You could see these mixes as soon as you walked down the aisle. I just had to take a photo. I’ve been using natural dyes for many years; sometimes purchasing them and sometimes making my own, so the thought of buying anything that practically glows in the dark is cringe-worthy. The average American consumes approximately… Read More

Giving Back

The Little Things

I teach a nutrition class at Sam Jones Shelter every Wednesday morning and it’s one of the most rewarding parts of my life. We have fascinating conversations. Today we ‘took apart’ a recent article about protein and looked at other parts of meat consumption-the environmental concerns. It was really interesting with lots of segueways.  One… Read More

Day 6 Buddha Bowl

IMG_4168

Today’s bowl is actually half of a small spaghetti squash. While the squash was baking (whole-do cut cut in half) I sauteed some red onions, garlic, shitake mushrooms and kale in just a little olive oil over very low heat. When the squash was done (it felt fairly soft when I pushed on it) I… Read More

Day 5 Buddha Bowl

IMG_4151

Oh my, I’m pretty sure this one is my favorite. The bowl started with raw ingredients: spinach and slivered kale, then diced carrots and red onions. Next came the cooked ingredients: parsnips, yams and cauliflower. Garbanzo beans were placed on top, then more red onions and the bowl was drizzled with a lime/curry vinaigrette.
