Have you ever heard of massaging your vegetables?!  I kept on hearing about massaged kale salads.  And then one day I had one.  And I never thought poorly of kale again.  The end.

It was on a vacation, a few years ago and we stumbled across the nicest far...

Smoothies are an awesome transport mechanism for protein and for the vitamins and fiber found in berries or other fruits (today was mango!). 

I usually go light on the fruit because I don't want a big sugar spike, and a little goes a long way.

Food & Mood is about whole foods, minimally processed ingredients, heavy on the nutrient-rich vegetables, and good portions of all the macro-nutrients your body needs.

I love this recipe because it covers all of those bases, plus, it is simple.

If you choose to make a cu...

Roasting is my favorite way to prepare most vegetables.  It is easy (just takes a cookie sheet and parchment paper) and quick  (you can usually roast a whole pan within 15 minutes at 425 degrees F).

Roasting really brings out the true flavor of the veggie and you don't...

After a long day at work, especially on evenings I work-out, I want easy and nutritious for dinner.

I love this Felicia green pea rotini pasta, it has high protein (11g) per serving and it tastes surprisingly good and passes for pasta. So if I'm going to eat pasta, I go...

It was only about ten years ago, when I was pregnant and then nursing my daughter, that I woke up to the power our food choices have in our lives.

Curcumin is a compound in turmeric with excellent benefits for your body and it is a great tasting spice that can be added to a lot of different recipes with delicious results!

This time last year I was not giving turmeric a second glance.

Oh sure it was in my spice cab...

I don’t know about you, but I have never been "at one" with meditation. It always seems like I am forcing it to fit into my busy life. 

Zen. Transcendental. Kundalini Yoga.

I dabbled, with limited success for a few years, off and on, but never consistently enough to make...

What could be a better mood-booster than a big bowl of veggies in a variety of colors and textures all assembled into a crunchy savory meal of goodness? 

Where each bite is different and uniquely yours?  Created by you, for you. 

If you have never heard of a buddha...
