The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.
As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading
Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
Colors float on gossamer wings
to splash Autumn, on all things.
Crisp cool winds my fingers bite
and swirl dead leaves, a dusty sight.
A hunter’s horn blows from the hill
while all the birdsong goes quite still.
Times has come for Tricks or Treats.
and small white ghosties filled with sweets.
Cry no tears for Summer’s sun.
Autumn’s brisk bright days have come.
Try this recipe to cool off on our Hot, Hazy, Humid days!
1/2 big seedless watermelon
1 cucumber – peeled and seeded
1 red bell pepper – seeded
1 red chili pepper – seeded
1 red onion – peeled
3 cloves of garlic – peeled
1 fist full of basil
2 sprigs of oregano
3 tbsp of lime juice
Several mint leaves
Any fresh herb you would like
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix everything in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add one cubed zucchini to the gazpacho and garnish with mint, basil, cilantro, lime or gorgonzola, hot sauce or yogurt.
Tasty Tuesday will no longer be every week. We will be sharing food and recipes once or twice a month — still on a Tuesday. Our next “Tasty Tuesday” for the month of May will be May 22nd. Stop in to see us then!
Today we are having a light, fresh, and pretty spring soup. This spring-green colored soup is Vegan, Gluten-Free, Fat-Free, and Low Sodium. For those of you watching your weight and your cardiovascular health, it is a perfect accompaniment to a spring meal.
6 1/2 cups of low sodium vegetable broth
1 large leek, white and light green parts only (you can save the dark green parts for making stock later)
2 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
1 bunch of asparagus (about 1 pound), trimmed, and cut into 1″ pieces
2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets
2 TBSP chopped fresh chives
1. Heat 1/2 cup of your vegetable broth over medium-high heat. Once hot, add leek, and reduce heat to medium. Cook leek until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently so it doesn’t stick or burn (if the liquid is burning off, turn heat down further).
2. Add remaining broth and potatoes, and bring to a boil.
3. Stir in asparagus and broccoli and bring to a boil again.
4. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently until vegetables are soft, about 15 minutes.
5. Remove pot from heat and allow it to cool slightly.
6. Puree in blender, Vitamix, or use immersion blender, taking care not to burn yourself on the hot soup.
7. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh chives.
Just a note to say that “Tasty Tuesday” is on hiatus until February due to the death of my beloved father, James Lancaster.
We will resume on February 7th with something yummy!
