Feeling Our Fullness- Something We Are Born With- Spilling the Beans Guest Blog Post

I feel really lucky to have been a guest blogger on my South Dakota friend Amanda Lambrechts’ blog Spilling the Beans! She is putting her spin on the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating, so I took on Principle #5- Honoring Your Fullness. During my time as a  breastfeeding counselor, I learned a lot about honoring fullness- […]

Recipe: Chocolate Coconut Bites

I’ve struggled with iron deficiency since I was young. Having been a vegetarian from age 7-16 but also a picky eater, I almost exclusively ate bread and cheese for every meal. And french fries. When I first found out I was iron-deficient in high school, I started really paying attention to nutrition, so much so […]

What does Health Look Like?

Here are two memories I have: The first is when I was 14. I came down with a the most severe case of food poisoning I’ve ever had. It felt like I was dying. The only things I could get down my throat for two weeks were small sips of water and grapefruit (very weird […]

Recipe: A Green Drink

I think everyone has their version of this drink. It’s a great way to get in your greens for the day without woofing down a salad. But not all green drinks are created equal. If you own a juicer, you will have noticed all that gobbeldy gunk that gets extracted as you make the juice, […]

Four cans o’ beans. That seems like a lot of beans, doesn’t it? Well, guess what? That’s only going to be about $4. I even found 6 ounce cans of black beans for 78 cents each- whadda deal! I know I post a lot of soups on here, but I love soup so I don’t care! […]

Simple Roasted Vegetables

  Look at this exotic beet. I’m gonna tell you a secret. I’m gonna tell you how to make yourself look like a culinary school graduate by blindly grabbing farmer’s market produce and throwing it in the oven for a ‘lil bit. People will ooh and ahh and you will beam. Dead serious. I impress […]

Recipe: Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Come on. I know you love this soup. I know that you tense up when you see it on the menu, or in a beauteous, hot cauldron in a cafeteria, or dining hall (such as mine for the two years I was a dining-hall-goer). It’s so good, but is basically, really, just cheese-drenched broccoli, and […]
