Flowers are the new Natural Healers

Last year, I attended a workshop with Gale Barton regarding the power flowers have in your life. I found them to truly hold a special power and by allowing them to share it with you can bring an amazing positive experience into your life. Please read more about Gale below and visit her website to see what is going on with Sweet Ferns.

Love my Kombucha!

What is it?
It is a tea or some may refer to it as
elixir. Either way, it’s a miracle,
and it’s been used around the
world for hundreds of years to
help restore balance and vitality.

Most health food stores carry Kombucha. Specifically, Whole Foods and Healthy Appetites in Plymouth.

A Book for Mindfulness

Several of my clients this month have been working on mindful eating. Most times this can take experimenting and practicing new skills to unwind and rebuild habits that have be developed over the years.

Whether your challenging habits to break are during the day or at night, change must be an open door. Picture yourself in the woods taking the same path when there are several others to walk down. In order for this to happen, you may need support and guidance to help develop a plan and provide accountabilty, which is a great thing!

Many people know what to eat, but how to eat in this busy place can be difficult. One client stated, “WOW, I love you right now!” after we developed her plan to break those nightime eating patterns.

This book by Thich Nhat Hahn, author of another one of my favorite books, “Miracle of Mindfulness,” has done it again. This is such a fabulous tool to build that relationship you always wanted with food.

I can get you to try Brussel Sprouts


This past weekend I made brussel sprouts for a Ping Pong tournament. I was able to get 8 people who have never tried them before and 2 people that stated they “hated” them to enjoy one of my favorite vegetables. Here’s how I did it:

-Buy fresh brussel sprouts
-Cut off the bottoms
-Then, slice in halves
-Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees
-Toss brussels with 2 tsp of Olive oil
-Lay them on a cooking sheet
-Sprinkle a pinch of Sea Salt and pepper over the entire batch
-Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until they begin turning slightly brown

ENJOY! I know you will.

Quinoa


What is it?
-Whole Grain and high in fiber
-Complete Protein
-Similar to cous cous

Where do you buy it?
-Most grocery stores, like Stop & Shop in the health food section or your local health food store.

How do you cook it?
-As a side dish or a cold salad
-Basic preparation:
Ingredients:
•1 cup quinoa
•1 1/2 cups cold water
•Optional: 1/2 tsp salt
Quinoa Cooking Directions:
1.Soak the quinoa for 15 min – 1/2 hour in it’s cooking pot. Soaking helps quinoa to cook evenly, and loosens up the outer coating of saponin, which can give a bitter taste if not removed
2.If you don’t have time for a longer soaking, use hot water and soak for five minutes
3.To Rinse: Stir the quinoa with your hand, and carefully pour off the rinsing water, using a fine mesh strainer at the last
4.Drain quinoa well in the strainer, transfer to the cooking pot, add 1 1/2 cups water & 1/2 tsp salt if desired
5.Bring to a boil, cover with a tight fitting lid, and turn the heat down to simmer
6.Cook for 15 minutes
7.Remove quinoa from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on
8.Fluff quinoa gently with a fork and serve
