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…

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

I first started making chia pudding when I began my job at Mother Earth’s. I learned about the health benefits and properties of chia seeds and how they work in recipes. They remind me of tapioca, but can be eaten raw. The recipe I used (which wasn’t one of my own) was ok but not…

Tomato & Corn Salad

How many variations of tomato salad can I create? Well, here’s the thing: when I see the bounty of the summer season, I try to use our seasonal produce in as many ways as I can. Delicious corn grows in our northeast region and we have a local grower right down the road. Tomatoes are wonderful when they’re…

It has the unique quality of bindability, so no other binders are required when making pancakes or crepes. I vary the veggies depending on the time of year. In the summertime, I love to use fresh local…

It’s a sweet treat that you won’t mind giving to your kids. Ingredients: 2 cups soft dates (medjool, deglet, etc.)—rough chopped ½…

Cole Slaw

There are so many cole slaw recipes out there, but I just had to create another one! My inspiration was a new balsamic vinegar that is now available at Mother Earth’s. I was thinking about recipes that would work well with this new vinegar. Since there is a natural sweetness to it, I knew I could…

Black Bean and Corn Salad

This is another recipe inspired by our local, corn-growing season. Using fresh, local, organic seasonal corn is best. We have delicious corn in our northeast region and I love it! This is a great potluck, picnic, or barbecue dish. Ingredients 2-15 oz. cans black beans—rinsed and drained 2 cups blanched/cooked corn kernels 1 medium-size sweet bell…
