March Food of the Month: Quinoa

Happy March!

I hope March is starting off great for you! I am so looking forward to the Spring! It has been so cold for this native Southern Californian! We’ve had so much rain here in Southern California that poppies and wildflowers are in full bloom. We also have lots of snow in our local mountains. It’s too bad that state doesn’t have a way to store all the rain we got the past few weeks.

I like to begin each month with a quote.

I have made it a rule to give every tooth of mine a chance, and when I eat, to chew every bite thirty-two times. To this rule I owe much of my success in life.

-William Gladstone



When it comes to increased health, it’s not just what we eat but how we eat. Digestion actually begins in the mouth, where contact with our teeth and digestive enzymes in our saliva break down food. But these days most of us rush through the whole eating experience, barely acknowledging what we’re putting in our mouths. We eat while distracted—working, reading, talking and watching television—and swallow our food practically whole. On average we chew each bite only eight times. It’s no wonder that many people have digestive problems.

There are many great reasons to slow down and chew your food.

  • Saliva breaks down food into simple sugars, creating a sweet taste. The more we chew, the sweeter our food becomes, so we don’t crave those after-meal sweets.
  • Chewing reduces digestive distress and improves assimilation, allowing our bodies to absorb maximum nutrition from each bite of food.
  • More chewing produces more endorphins, the brain chemicals responsible for creating good feelings.
  • It’s also helpful for weight loss, because when we are chewing well, we are more apt to notice when we are full.
  • In fact, chewing can promote increased circulation, enhanced immunity, increased energy and endurance, as well as improve skin health and stabilize weight.
  • Taking time with a meal, beginning with chewing, allows for enjoyment of the whole experience of eating: the smells, flavors and textures. It helps us to give thanks, to show appreciation for the abundance in our lives and to develop patience and self-control.

The power of chewing is so great that there are stories of concentration camp survivors who, when others could not, made it through with very little food by chewing their meager rations up to 300 times per bite of food. For most of us 300 chews are a daunting and unrealistic goal. However, you can experience the benefits of chewing by increasing to 30 chews per bite. Try it and see how you feel.

Try eating without the TV, computer, Blackberry, newspaper or noisy company. Instead just pay attention to the food and to how you are breathing and chewing.

This kind of quiet can be disconcerting at first, since we are used to a steady stream of advertising, news, media, email and demands from others. But as you create a new habit, you will begin to appreciate eating without rushing. You have to eat every day—why not learn to savor and enjoy it?

Food Focus: Quinoa

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), is a nutritional powerhouse with ancient origins. It was originally cultivated by the Incas more than 5,000 years ago; they referred to it as the “mother of all grains.” It contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a great source of protein for vegetarians. Quinoa is also high in magnesium, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, iron, copper, manganese, riboflavin and zinc.

While quinoa is widely considered a grain, it’s actually the seed of a plant called Chenopodium or Goosefoot, related to chard and spinach. Quinoa is a gluten-free grain and has a similar effect as other whole grains in helping to stabilize blood sugar.

It has a waxy protective coating called saponin which can leave a bitter taste. For best results, rinse quinoa before you cook it or even soak it for a few hours or overnight. When cooked, it has a fluffy, slightly crunchy texture. Try it in soups, salads, as a breakfast porridge or as its own side dish.

For quinoa, and whole grains in general, the majority of digestion occurs in the mouth through chewing and exposure to saliva. For optimal nutrition and assimilation, it is vital to chew your grains well and with awareness. A great meditation is to find a calm place, without distractions, to sit down for your meal. Make it a habit to chew each bite 20 times or more. See how this simple practice can help your digestion and overall focus for the rest of your day.

11 Small Steps to Take Back Your Health

Many of us make health-related resolutions, such as to lose weight, quit smoking, or join a health club. While it is common to set high goals, experts say that setting smaller goals could do more for our health.

“Small steps are achievable and are easier to fit into your daily routine,” says James O. Hill, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. “They are less overwhelming than a big, sudden change.”

Here are 11 small steps to improve your health.

1. Keep an eye on your weight and work on making sure you are not gaining extra pounds.

2. Take more small steps. Use a pedometer to count your daily steps; then add 2,000, the equivalent of one extra mile. Keep adding steps, 1,000 to 2,000 each month or so, until you take 10,000 steps on most days.

3. Eat breakfast. Breakfast eaters tend to weigh less and have better diets overall. For a filling and nutrition-packed breakfast, Elzekiel bread with almond butter and oatmeal with fresh fruit or if that is too much, just have one or the other for breakfast.

4. Switch three grain servings each day to brown rice, quinoa, or sweet potatoes. If you’re like the average American, you may eat less than one whole grain serving a day. A rule of thumb: protein with complex carb and vegetables in your meals.

5. Have at least one green salad every day. Eating a salad (with low-fat or fat-free dressing) is filling and may help you eat less during the meal. It also counts toward your five daily cups of vegetables and fruits.

6. Include greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, and berries (G-BOMBS) into your meals as advised by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

7. Trim the fat. Fat has a lot of calories. Purchase lean meats, eat poultry without the skin, switch to lower-fat cheeses without antibiotics, and use a nonstick pan with only a dab of avocado oil or ghee.

8. Downsize your dishes. The smaller the plate or bowl, the less you will eat.

9. Losing 5 to 10 percent of your current weight may lead to these health benefits: lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides.

10. Keep track of what you are eating. Write down what you eat in a journal and track how you feel. Often, just writing things down can help you eat less.

11. Add in selfcare to your daily routine, even it’s for 5 minutes each day. It’s a start.

To your health,


3 Easy Steps to Greater Happiness

You deserve to be happy, but there are days when it’s easy to get sucked into negativity and despair. When nothing seems to go your way. When the craziness around you starts to influence your own thoughts. When you wish you were as awesome as so and so…

There are a few simple strategies that you can implement today to start increasing your levels of happiness. Every day is a new opportunity for growth and today you can choose to honor your right to wholehearted happiness. 

1, Let Go of Perfection

When you expect perfection, you set yourself up for disappointment. Because nobody’s perfect, and thinking you need to be is just setting yourself up for failure. Or worse, for not even starting.

On the road of self-improvement, there will be potholes, cracks in the pavement and distractions on the sidelines. This is completely normal and natural. Judging yourself too harshly for not being perfect is a major happiness killer.

2. Eat More Fermented Foods and Probiotics

Fermented foods might not seem to have much to do with happiness from the outside but on the inside they make a huge difference. By adding probiotic rich foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi, miso, yogurt and kombucha into your diet, you’ll strengthen your body’s ability to produce serotonin, the happy hormone.

Serotonin is produced in large amounts in the gut, but when our gut bacteria isn’t healthy, our body’s have a hard time producing serotonin and transporting it to our brains.

The gut is often referred to as the second brain and for good reason. A balanced probiotic rich gut makes it easy to produce hormones that flood the brain with positive feelings. Recent studies are even looking to probiotics as a way to treat depression and anxiety! 

3. Watch Your Thoughts

Thoughts are wonderful and wicked at the same time. They can build you up or they can hold you back from taking action towards what you want.

The only way to really know what’s going on in your own head is to sit down and watch the movie that only you can see. Through the daily practice of sitting down and watching the thoughts pass through you without judgement you can start to understand yourself better.

This is a place where massive growth happens. If you notice a lot of negative self-talk you can consciously take action to switch it around. This one action alone, even for just a few minutes a day, can increase your happiness and decrease your stress tenfold.

Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

You don’t need to sacrifice your health to eat delicious food, you just need to get creative. Make lettuce wraps your new best friend, they’re versatile and you can fill a nice leaf of lettuce with whatever you fancy from chicken to shrimp, ground beef or tempeh, whatever you fill it with, there’s just something about eating a wrap that screams comfort and indulgence.

Try these lettuce wraps next time you feel like ordering take-out.


Serves 2

4 to 6 romaine lettuce leaves

1 lemon, juiced

1 tablespoon honey

1 apple, chopped

2 cups cooked chicken breast, chopped

2 teaspoons basil

When you’re working on reestablishing healthy gut bacteria cravings often kick in like inner monsters. It’s because you’re depriving your bad bacteria of the stuff they love to feast on: sugar and refined carbohydrates.

This is an essential part of process when it comes to rebuilding gut health, but it helps to have plenty of resources to lean on and access to support.

How You Can Use Self-Belly Massage for Better Digestion and Stress Relief 

Massage is a powerful practice for improving circulation, removing unwanted toxins and calming the nervous system. The ancient Maya developed a type of massage specifically for the abdomen, other cultures utilize abdominal massage in their healing modalities also. 

The benefits of abdominal massage are the same as regular massage, though they offer additional benefits for the digestive system. Whenever I have a sore tummy, cramps, constipation or gas I rely on this technique to help relieve pain and get things moving in the right way. It’s incredibly easy to do and there are just a few principles to follow. 

  • Always move in clockwise circles 
  • Go slow and don’t apply too much pressure 
  • It should not be painful 
  • Using peppermint or lavender oil diluted in a bit of carrier oil is extra effective 
  • Lay down in a comfortable position in a quiet environment 
  • Move your hands in circles that go up close to the ribs and down to the pelvic bone 
  • It doesn’t have to take long, even 2 minutes is enough to have positive effects 

This form of massage ensures a full blood supply to the lower intestine and really stimulate movement and detoxification. This type of self massage helps with releasing gas and reducing bloating. 

I use this technique when I lay down in bed to sleep at night and it helps promote long term gastrointestinal health. It also helps to relax the vagus nerve and reduce stress. Stress is one of the worst culprits for poor digestive health so the more ways to decrease it the better.

In the program you get a ton of delicious satisfying recipes as well as strategies that will help rebuild your intestinal flora.

Happy New Year! Say hello to new opportunities!!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. With the beginning of a new year, we begin the year with a clean slate. “I like starting projects in January. That’s the best time to start something. It’s so inward.”  Carolyn Chute

New Year! New You!

A lot of people begin the New Year by making resolutions. We’ve all been there. We take a vow to lose weight, exercise more or spend more time with our family. We start the year with great intentions, but then we quickly relapse into old habits. Why is it so hard to stick to those New Year’s resolutions?

Here’s a quote to keep in mind.

True life is lived when tiny changes occur. – Leo Tolstoy

Here are some ways you can make your intentions a reality this year:

  1. Write down your intentions i.e. post-its and keep them in a visible place, like taped to your bedroom mirror or the dashboard of your car.
  2. Get to the source of whatever is keeping you in a rut. Are you in a stressful relationship that causes you to eat a pint of ice cream every night? Are you stressed at your job and feel too tired to exercise after work? If you don’t tackle the root of the behavior, it will be much harder to accomplish your goal.
  3. Be clear about what your life would look like once you achieve your goal. If you resolve to go to the gym more, how will this benefit you? Get connected to the result of your action, and you will be more likely to stick with your plan.
  4. Share your resolutions with friends and family. Get an accountability buddy. Hold each other accountable for achieving your goals. If you want to go to the gym more, have a friend call you two or three times a week to check on you or invite them to join you.
  5. Reward yourself with every little accomplishment. If your intention is to lose weight and you lose one pound a week, pamper yourself with a massage.

Big changes do not require big leaps. Permanent change is more likely to happen gradually than through one big restrictive plan. Allow yourself to climb the ladder one rung at a time.

Food Focus: Sea Vegetables

In Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM, sea vegetables correspond to the winter season and to the kidneys, adrenal
glands, bladder and reproductive organs. The strengthening, balancing and cleansing properties of sea vegetables are known to help these organs as well as the hair, skin and nails. Sea vegetables (or seaweeds) provide a variety of minerals and vitamins, including calcium, iron and iodine, and can help balance hormone and thyroid levels in the body. Eating too many processed foods or foods grown in mineral-depleted soil can result in a lack of minerals in the body, leading to cravings for salty or sugary foods. Adding sea vegetables to your diet can help balance your energy levels and alleviate cravings.

Recipe of the Month: Mighty Miso Soup

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
Yield: 4-5 servings


4-5 cups spring water
1-2 inch strip of wakame, rinsed and soaked 5 minutes in 1 cup of water until softened
1-2 cups thinly sliced vegetables of your choice
2-3 teaspoons barley miso
1 green onion, finely chopped


  1. Chop soaked wakame.
  2. Discard soaking water or use on houseplants for a boost of minerals.
  3. Place water and wakame in a soup pot and bring to a boil.
  4. Add root vegetables first and simmer gently for 5 minutes or until tender.

  7. Reduce heat to very low; do not boil or simmer miso broth.
  8. Allow soup to cook 2-3 minutes.

 onion-winter squash-cabbage: great in wintertime
 leek-corn-broccoli: great in summertime


 Add cooked grains at the beginning of making the soup. They will become nice and soft.
 Add a tablespoon of uncooked quinoa or millet at the beginning and let it cook with vegetables for 20 minutes.
 Add cubed tofu.
 Add bean sprouts – add last.
 Season with 1/2 teaspoon ginger juice or finely chopped ginger.
 If using dry shiitake mushrooms, let them soak for 20 minutes, slice and add at the beginning of recipe.

Food Focus for December: Sweet Potatoes

Hey there! Happy Holidays!

Let’s talk about something no one really likes talking about: Body type.

Almost all of us have a distorted image of our body, often due to the importance our culture places on outward
appearance and the onslaught of media images of airbrushed models and celebrities. On a daily basis, we talk
to ourselves in ways we would never speak to another. Imagine speaking to a child the way you speak to
yourself about your body. It would devastate and squelch a child. It affects you similarly, causing stress and
emotional pain in your body, which can make improving your health or losing weight even more difficult.
Think of all the intelligence, creativity and time you spend on improving, altering and judging your appearance. Who would you be and what could you accomplish if your valuable resources weren’t used this way? Constant emphasis on the
external makes us discount the great presence and intelligence that is housed by the body. It makes us forget the
magic of our internal rhythms and fail to acknowledge the beautiful bodies we have.

The body you have right now is incredible! It never misses a heartbeat, it maintains homeostasis and it miraculously
digests whatever you put in it. It is your instrument for expressing your creativity, intelligence and love. By focusing
on the 1% you don’t like or wish were different, you may be ignoring the remaining 99% about your body that is
beautiful, unique and delightful.

What would your life be like if you were simply at peace with the body you have? You may wish to make your body healthier and stronger, but could you do that outof love and respect for your body instead of the opposite? Could you begin to treat yourself with kindness, to limit the negative self-talk and to reconnect with your inner wisdom? Take a minute to imagine what that would feel like. It would mean celebrating your body rather than punishing it. It would mean nourishing
your body rather than depriving it. It would mean a chance to watch your body flourish when treated with care and respect.

Food Focus: Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are on everyone’s mind this season. They seem to go hand in hand with the holidays, and fortunately, eating these and other sweet vegetables don’t need to be limited to this time of year. Cravings for sweets can be greatly reduced by adding sweet vegetables, such as sweet potatoes, yams, parsnips, beets, squash, turnips and rutabagas to your daily diet. Sweet potatoes elevate blood sugar gently rather than with the jolt delivered by simple refined carbohydrates, so
there’s no energy crash after you eat them. Much higher in nutrients than white potatoes and especially rich in vitamin A, sweet potatoes offer a creamy consistency that is satisfying and soothing. They are healing to the stomach, spleen, pancreas and reproductive organs and help to remove toxins from the body.

If you don’t have any sweet potatoes in your kitchen, go out and buy some (organic and local if possible) and make the recipe below.

Recipe of the Month

This recipe is an eye-opener for those who find sweet potatoes cloyingly sweet or those who are tired of eating
them smothered in marshmallows and brown sugar. Japanese sweet potatoes, with their pale flesh and delicate
flavor, are a treat if you can find them.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30-40 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

4 sweet potatoes
rosemary or parsley
2-3 limes
olive oil or avocado oil, salt (optional)


  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them whole, in their skins, at 375 degrees until tender, about 40
  2. Pour rosemary or parsley spice or fresh rosemary or parsley
  3. When sweet potatoes are done, slit open the skin and place on serving plate. Season with salt and dots of
    butter or a sprinkle of oil, if you like, then squeeze fresh lime juice all over, and shower with cilantro leaves.

Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Almond Butter Caramel Bars

This incredible vegan almond butter caramel bars with a yummy, crunchy chocolate cookie base with walnuts in the middle. These bars are naturally sweetened, gluten-free, and dairy free. An awesome, guilt-free snack!!


For the cookie base:

1 ¼ cup packed super fine blanched almond flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

¼ cup raw cacao powder

3 tablespoons melted and cooled unrefined coconut oil

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (I used Trader Joes)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon salt

For the almond butter layer or caramel layer:

  • 3/4 cup almond butter 
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts

For the chocolate topping:

  • 3/4 cup chocolate bars (I used chocolate bars with 75 to 80% cacao.)
  • 1/2 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8″ x 8″ square pan with parchment paper. 
  2. In a medium bowl add almond flour, cacao powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix together with a fork until it forms a nice and thick crumb texture. Add to the pan and if needed, use your fingers to evenly press down mixture into the pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow the crust to cool for 10 minutes before adding caramel.
  3. Sprinkle the crust evenly with the walnuts.
  4. To make the almond butter caramel layer: In a small pot, add the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt and place over low to medium heat for approximately 2 minutes until caramel starts to just slightly bubble, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and pour caramel over the walnuts and crust.
  5. Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or until the almond butter mixture is completely hardened. 
  6. After 30 minutes, make the chocolate layer: Melt chocolate squares and coconut oil either in a small pot on the stove using low heat or microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring constantly until chocolate is completely melted.
  7. Pour the chocolate over the caramel layer; tilt the pan side-to-side so the chocolate is evenly distributed. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour until chocolate is hardened and bars are completely cooled.
  8. Remove bars from the pan and cut into 16 bars (so they look like twix bars). Note: I cut the entire pan of bars in half, then cut those in half and so on so the bars are even.
  9. Bars should be kept covered in the fridge until ready to serve.
