What’s in Season?

Relish in the bounty of spring with seasonal, local produce and a plethora of recipes that will keep you busy all season long.

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.

Coconut Flax Crackers

Short and sweet post, friends. I discovered this recipe and played around with it when I was doing The Plan Diet a few months ago (click here it’s worth checking out). If you’re not a big fan of flax, or not sure if you are yet, I guarantee these will grow on you and help you change your mind. Flax has a unique combination of fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. The omega-3 fatty acids help control inflammation and promote weight loss. Chew ’em good! Ingredients: 1/2 cup whole flax seeds 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup coconut 1 Tbs. honey 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 coconut extract if you have it) 1/8 tsp. ground cardamom 1/8 tsp. ground ginger Directions:  1) Combine the flax seeds and water in a bowl or measuring cup, stir, and let sit for at least an hour or up to overnight. The mixture will become very thick and viscous. 2) Preheat the oven to 275. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 3) Add the remaining ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated. Spread the mixture in a thin, uniform layer on the parchment paper. 4) Bake for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the flax “cracker” using a butter knife or spatula. 5) Bake for another 20-30 minutes, until it starts to look toasted and is crispy. Let cool and break into whatever size you desire. Crackers last for a few days in a sealed container. Honestly they’ll last for several weeks, but they become pretty stale after a few days. You can eat them plain, dipped in yogurt,... read more

Coco-for-bananas Parfait

If you’re not on the banana “nice cream” bandwagon- get on it! It’s still smokin’ hot in the Bay Area and this discovery (yeah right, just head to Pinterest and you’ll see I’m not the first) saved my life today while I was working from home in my stuffy apartment. The best part about it? NO GUILT because it’s mostly natural sugar and lower in fat than even frozen yogurt is. You’re welcome. As long as you have a base of frozen bananas, the opportunities are endless! This particular creation took me a few minutes to whip up — literally — and a few minutes to eat. If you have a small food processor or a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix, you can whip bananas into a luscious creamy dessert resembling soft serve ice cream and add any number of fixings. 

Ingredients: 2 frozen bananas 1 Tbs. + 1 tsp. canned coconut milk 1 tsp. cocoa powder Pinch of sea salt 2 Tbs. chocolate chips 1 Tbs. shredded unsweetened coconut *Peel and break the bananas into a few smaller pieces to freeze ahead of time. I always have a full container of frozen bananas so I have them handy for smoothies. But screw smoothies, since I will be using them for all 9 options you see below. 

Directions: 1. Combine the frozen bananas, 1 Tbs. coconut milk, cocoa powder, sea salt, and 1 Tbs. water in a small food processor. Blend until thick and creamy (up to a minute or even more). 2. Combine chocolate chips and 1 tsp. coconut milk in a small bowl and microwave for 15-20... read more

How to satisfy your sweet tooth the heathy way

These recipes changed my life, seriously. I’ve been having the Chocolate Avocado Mousse almost every day for the last week: my sugar cravings have gone way down and I’m finding that just a few tablespoons will satisfy me (and I don’t, umm, binge eat). If you’re like me, you want something sweet after every meal. This can be a huge bummer and super annoying because we know these cravings mostly come from deeply engrained habits and not a physiological need for energy. I’ve learned a couple solutions for managing sugar cravings: First and foremost, support your body with nutrient-dense whole foods and make sure you’re getting enough protein from a variety of sources. The most gnarly sugar cravings (especially at night) will subside simply by pumping healthy, balanced meals into your body and not under-eating. Resist the urge for 20-30 minutes before giving in to your temptation. I know this sounds simple, but sometimes I set an alarm on my phone to go off 20 minutes after I finished my meal and then assess how much I want something sweet. Usually I forget about it. But on those days that I don’t… Taaa-daaaaaaa!!! Have your avocado desserts at-the-ready! I’m telling you, a few spoonfuls of one of these desserts will do the trick. They’re rich in healthy fats, full of flavor, and only use a small amount of natural sweetener. Other go-to healthy sweets I reach for when the cravings trump the will power: dates or other dried fruit, fresh fruit with honey yogurt, a spoonful of almond butter mixed with honey, or a few squares of dark chocolate. A heck of a... read more
