2016 Resolution #4: Cooking More at Home

Of the many resolutions we can make this year to improve our health, spending more time in the kitchen is one of my top recommendations.

7 Feel-Good Habits To Embrace In 2016

Change. Why is it that the changes we promise to make on New Year’s Day are so easily broken just a few days later? Why is it that sticking with new, healthy habits can seem like such a challenge? One reason might be that we’re not actually enjoying the process of making those changes. But what if they were fun?

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time to enjoy family and friends and to celebrate the bounty of seasonal food at this time of year.

Coconut milk and curry bring a tasty twist to regular carrot soup in this recipe. This incredibly healthy, creamy soup can be enjoyed during any season–and perfect for a crisp fall day or evening.
