Food Is Our Medicine

It is essential for us to have a basic understanding of our physical make-up. This is highly relevant knowledge that will help us know how to better take care of ourselves. When I became a licensed massage therapist I had to study anatomy and physiology, myology, pathology, neurology, kinesiology, and many other medical sciences. I…

Thai Coconut Curry Vegetables with Tofu

The first time I tried Thai food, I fell in love. Since then I have created a few recipes to emulate the dishes I have come to love. This is my version of Thai red curry. People really enjoy this dish! Ingredients 1 (14–16-ounce) block of tofu, cubed and baked* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil…

Kale-Cucumber Salad with Citrus-Mint Dressing

The topic of alkaline foods is common these days. High-acid foods (coffee, alcohol, meat, cheese, etc.) may contribute to acid reflux, heartburn and other conditions. Alkaline foods (fruits, vegetables, seeds, herbs, spices, etc.) help to balance acidity. I prepared this salad for my demo at work. All the ingredients are alkaline, so I refer to it…

Cajun Quinoa Salad with Seasonal Veggies

Another quinoa salad recipe! As the price of quinoa has gone down, I am again inspired to use this nutritious ingredient. At Mother Earth’s we have quite a wonderful selection of bulk spices. I tend to use the same seasonings over and over again, so I figured it was time to add some new spices to…

Black Velvet Fudge Bites

This recipe is a variation of an Indian dessert called besan halva. Cocoa is not a traditional ingredient, but with so many chocolate lovers out there, it seemed like a good choice. I also use coconut oil instead of butter or ghee. They are quite fudgy, reminiscent of brownies. Ingredients ½ cup coconut oil ⅔…

White Bean Hummus

Yes! Another hummus recipe. I know that there are so many good recipes out there, but I just had to create one of my own. It’s a bit lighter as there is no added olive oil often found in hummus recipes. Even without the added fat, it’s still creamy and delicious. Tahini has its own…

Edamame Spaghetti with Sundried Tomatoes & Olives

This is a variation of my Spaghetti with Artichoke Hearts recipe. In my other recipe I used a pasta product from “Explore Asian”. “Explore Asian” is now “Explore Cuisine” and their packaging has changed. It is still the same impressive pasta product, with each 2-ounce serving providing 20–25 grams of protein and 10–15 grams of fiber! The…
