June bugs, Fire pits & Mexican Corn

Today is June! Like my friend Katharine said last night, “My life is flashing before my eyes.” I’ve been busy with lots of green smoothie presentations which has been fantastic. I met so many great people these past couple of months. I was in Athol, Townsend, Essex, Belchertown, and this week I’ll be in Sandwich!...
Julie's Cauliflower Mash - 2 ways!

Julie’s Cauliflower Mash – 2 ways!

This is how I tell friends about a recipe of mine:  “So get two heads of cauli.. I didn’t use too much of  the stems (mostly the flower part). I pretty much steamed them (fill a 1/4 the way with water) until you touch a piece with a fork then it smooshes apart. This past time I...
Memories of a Lentil

Memories of a Lentil

Once upon a time I was a lentil loving baby. Now I’m a lentil loving adult. Those little lens shaped beans remind me of my Nana’s house in Revere. She treated me like a queen and would fill my belly with bowls and bowls of homemade lentil soup. She was probably setting me up for...
Thanks 2014

Thanks 2014

Who wants to dig a hole and bury the 365 days that comprised 2014? I should, but I won’t.  2014 taught me a thing or two, or ten. It reminded me that I am strong, that I have the support of an army ready to go to war for me, and that shit happens.  The...
Candied Ginger To The Rescue

Candied Ginger To The Rescue

Ginger is originally from Asia but it’s so well known in the US, especially around this time of year. Gingerbread men, pumpkin pie, gingerbread houses, custards, ginger snaps, the fun never ends. You may also know ginger as a remedy for nausea, indigestion, the common cold, and in general sick feeling tummies. Google Image ‘ginger plant‘ to...
You Don't Make Friends With Salad

You Don’t Make Friends With Salad

Last night I had a dream that I was desperately trying to get to an All You Can Eat Buffet. This buffet was up a very dangerous mountain and no matter how hard I tried I just didn’t have the strength to make it. Lucky for me, I have a best friend who doubles as a...
You're Fired!

You’re Fired!

Have you ever seen the video of Jessica reciting her daily affirmations? That’s me, except Jessica is much cuter than I am in the morning. I stare into the mirror with wide eyes and demand a slew of unattainable goals for myself. “Today you will write a novel, climb Mt. Everest, learn how to invest in the stock market,...
Hungry like the Bear?

Hungry like the Bear?

  YES, that is a picture of an enormous black bear that’s making its way through Harvard Ma.  I wish I took a picture of the sky today. How beautiful was the Earth this morning?! Before it started raining the lighting at around 6:30am was glorious. Right out the gate today is starting off much better...
Fall Waits For No One

Fall Waits For No One

It has FALLen upon us! Get it? It’s crazy but true. My favorite season is here, but it won’t be around for long. Fall moves to the beat of its own drum. It’s not going to wait for you to get your S#$t together. Pardon my french.  I’ve done some pretty cool stuff so far...
I'm sorry, but coffee is not breakfast.

I’m sorry, but coffee is not breakfast.

Back in the swing of things yet? The school year has just begun. You, most likely have less than 20 minutes to slap on some deodorant and put your hair in a clip before pilling everyone into the car. I don’t have children, so I may not fully understand the mad dash most of you endure...
"Fresh Ta Death" Avocado & Strawberry Pecan Salad

“Fresh Ta Death” Avocado & Strawberry Pecan Salad

“Fresh ta death” a term used to describe something that is so good it is inexplainable. For the past few weeks I’ve been cruising around in my new Jeep jamin’ out to “Backspin.” The lyrical genius of Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Method Man, Jay-z, 2Pac, and NAS have all but taken over my everyday vocabulary.  Please enjoy this “fresh...

Change Is Good And So Are Lentils

Hey All, How’s your summer going?  A lot has happened to me over the past few months and that’s why I haven’t been posting as much. Sheesh, I’ll try to make this short. 1) I moved to Harvard Ma with my Hubby! We brought Naan with us of course Incase you didn’t know moving is THE...
