Kitchen Experiments – Strawberries with Coconut Whipped Cream

Have you been hearing non-stop now about coconut oil, milk and water?  Even coconut flour and sugar have found their way to the shelves! It seems like not long ago when coconut anything was a definite no-no.  Well, not anymore. It seems the more coconut the better!  Actually, when I went to school to get myContinue reading “Kitchen Experiments – Strawberries with Coconut Whipped Cream”

Inflammation – Musings from Anita

Inflammation is the hot topic in my world right now.

Acupuncture’s Five Elements

Acupuncture is on my mind this month! I (Louise) have been taking a 2 year course in Stockbridge, MA with Lonny Jarrett and it is very thought-provoking.

Calcium Conundrum

I have a confession to make. I am the worst pill taker. I am always so impressed when I ask people if they take supplements and they proceed to rattle off a list about a mile long.

Kitchen Experiments – Lentils with Spinach and Shitake Mushrooms

I really like lentils – red, black or green – soup, stew, loaf – almost anyway you cook them, I love them!  Once again this recipe came out of the necessity of finding something to eat for dinner that was different but easy and definitely delicious.  I had made something similar to this previously beforeContinue reading “Kitchen Experiments – Lentils with Spinach and Shitake Mushrooms”

Kitchen Experiments – Granola in a Crockpot

I am all about having the right tools in the kitchen to make life easier. When I counsel people on how to improve their diets a common complaint is “I just don’t have time to cook good meals!” My first response to this is: “what kind of tools do you have in your kitchen?” ThisContinue reading “Kitchen Experiments – Granola in a Crockpot”
