After Haley’s lecture series with the San Rafael Fire Department, both myself and the members of the department are more conscious of our nutritional choices. While on duty our energy level and mental sharpness is critical to our job performance. Haley has taught us how to make healthier choices in our food and recipes selections to support us physically and mentally. It’s not uncommon to hear department members say “Haley wouldn’t approve of that.”  She has changed the way we look at nutrition.

I had been struggling with how to get my husband and myself to consistently eat a more healthful diet. Working with Haley was great because she helped us understand what we were eating, how it was affecting our health and fitness goals and what changes we could make to most effectively meet those goals. In just a few weeks, Haley guided us through those changes and we noticed differences immediately.

Haley was really able to help me come up with a wide variety of ideas for healthy eating, incorporating greens and other necessary nutrients into my everyday diet with more ease: ideas that made day-to-day eating easier, efficient, and even cost-effective. Taking care of yourself isn’t always going to be quick and efficient, the knowledge that Haley has the ability to share can make that process easier, and more fun!

Haley is so knowledgeable and still there are no stupid questions with her. I could come to her with really basic or very technical questions and she always took the time to make sure I got my answer and learned something useful. Plus, as a somewhat recent vegetarian, she guided me through a meal plan that not only helped me get the protein I needed but keep my intake of empty carbs down.

(you will actually find that it’s more of a brown color…) Why, you may ask? Bananas: Provide immediate and prolonged energy, good source of fiber and replaces essential nutrients lost during workouts. High in potassium and iron. Blueberries: High in micronutrients and antioxidants, has cancer-prevention qualities. Flax seed: packed with beneficial nutrients, especially B vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids (lowers  inflammation), fiber (lowers cholesterol), and phytochemicals (cancer-fighting antioxidants). Chia seed: super food of the Aztecs, high in fiber and healthy oils (similar to flax). Vitamineral Green: an organic, natural, cleansing, nutrient–rich combination of grasses and other greens, spirulina and other seaweeds. You can find this brand in most health food stores or buy it online here. Maca powder: a root commonly used in Peru to provide strength for Inca warriors. Contains calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, B vitamins, vitamin C, fiber and protein. Improves brain function, fertility, and libido. Protein powder: Use any protein powder of your choice.

They’re made from sprouted brown rice, which is an excellent source of protein and have all the essential amino acids. A good alternative to soy or whey powders. Leafy greens: packed with vitamins and nutrients that prevent cancer and other diseases (i.e. eat lots of... read more

Kabocha squash and fennel

 This is a rich, flavorful, and savory side dish that uses two of my most favorite vegetables: kabocha squash (delicious, creamy, sweet) and fennel (tender and sweet with a mild anise flavor). It’s a simple recipe, yet the ingredients speak for themselves. Except for prepping the squash, this recipe is super easy to whip up any night of the week; it can be a side dish, or serve it with brown rice and it becomes a main course! Yum! Ingredients 2 tbsp. of butter or Earth Balance non-dairy butter 20 (about 1/2 bag) pearl onions, peeled and whole 3 garlic cloves, diced 1/2 fennel bulb, sliced in thin half moons 1/2 cup of dry white wine 1/2 cup of veggie broth 1/4 tsp. of salt 1/4 tsp. of fresh-ground pepper (to taste) 4 cup of kabocha squash, peeled and cubed Steps Heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat Sautee onions and squash for about 5 minutes, or until slightly browned Add garlic and fennel, sautee for 5 more minutes Add wine and broth to saucepan, mix together ingredients, then cover Let everything simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally (add a little more broth to the pan if the liquid burns off) When the squash is tender, uncover and let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving... read more

Term defined: Homeopathic

So what does homeopathic even mean? I was asked this point blank the other day, and I realized I wasn’t quite sure how to respond. Throughout the past few years I have been on a quest to self-educate on the topics of health, holistic nutrition, and yes, homeopathic medicine, but I didn’t know the answer to this question?!! “It’s, you know, natural medicines and alternative remedies…” So I began investigating to get a clear, concise answer and finally understand what it means, then get it down on paper (or blog, rather), THEN commit it to memory. The first thing I did was go to Wikipedia. It’s long winded and, well, Wikipedia. Nevertheless, I found that in the first paragraph it says “The collective weight of scientific evidence has found homeopathy to be no more effective than a placebo.” Yikes. Moving on, I went to the American Institute of Homeopathy. It is a trade association for medical practitioners and has a comprehensive set of Standards of Practice meant to clarify the principles of homeopathic care. In summary: “Homeopathy views the state of being unwell as being a holistic disturbance in the homeostasis of the total being. The physician who employs Homeotherapeutics should be cognizant of the total or holistic nature of physiological disorder or disease and the necessity of a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment.” Getting closer. The Society of Homeopaths is a little more clear: “Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing… Homeopathy is based on the principle... read more
