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.

Here’s an easy winter-inspired salad recipe if you’re already thinking about what to make for the next holiday. Ingredients: 1 large butternut squash 2 apples 1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1/2 cup maple syrup 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 3 Tbs. fresh squeezed lemon juice 3 Tbs. grainy Dijon mustard Sea salt Fresh black pepper 8-10 cups of mixed salad greens and spinach 2-3 cups radicchio, chopped 1 cup hazelnuts, toasted 1/2 cup dried cranberries Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 400 2) Roast the squash and apples: Peel and cube the butternut squash. Cube the apple. Combine everything in a bowl and mix with 1/4 cup each of olive oil and maple syrup, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Apple Bites & Sweet Potato Pancakes

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Apple Bites This recipe, unlike most of the others, took me about four tries to perfect. I bet you can guess how many muffins I ate in the process… not a proud moment. However, since I’m training for the Marin Triathlon on Sunday (!), I’ve been a bottomless pit and the other day I really needed something to control the baked carb craving. Plus, Claudine and I are putting together our winter menu for the next 10 Day Health Challenge eBook, so it was a win-win! I tell my clients (both grown-ups and kids) that true health means living in balance, listening to our bodies, and enjoying our food. I love food- all types- and when the cravings or emotional eating threaten to take over, there are ways to deal with it that won’t ruin your appetite, digestion or waistline. This recipe is a great example. I could have gone out and bought frozen yogurt, but instead, I made mini muffins with no refined flour and using a natural sweetener. It did the trick. Bottom line, enjoy yourself, be good to your body, and don’t be afraid to satisfy cravings with the lesser of two- or many- evils. “If you think wellness is expensive then try illness.” Ingredients: (Makes about 12 muffins) 1 cup pumpkin puree 1/4 cup apple sauce 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted) 2 eggs 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 cup almond flour 1 cup oats 2 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice 1 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. sea salt 1 apple, grated or chopped finely... read more

Yogurt Masala Chicken and Green Salad with Lemony Almonds

This week I give you two foolproof family dinner recipes that are healthy, easy, and bound to please. How do I know this? Because they were part of the 18grains Cooking Party I threw several weeks ago: the twelve moms that attended were impressed, and so were their families. Yogurt Marinated Masala Chicken A few recipe notes: *You can use chicken breasts or thighs, though I prefer thighs. Due to the yogurt and the ginger in the marinade (both of which have enzymes that help tenderize the meat and break down proteins), even a chicken breast will come out moist with this recipe. But, sometimes chicken breasts just don’t cut it. Thighs are much juicier, tastier, and, well, fattier- but there ain’t nothing wrong with some good quality fat in your diet! Besides, dark meat contains more minerals than white meat, I’m told. *Mmmm spices: Some nutritionists feel heavy spices are too stimulating and should be used sparingly, while others feel that they add flavor and nutrients and help digestion by stimulating saliva production. I say, anything that makes fresh ingredients taste good (and man, this flavor combo will knock your socks off)- use it! *If you don’t have a food processor, finely mince the cilantro, garlic, onion, and ginger and combine with remaining ingredients. Also, you can make extra marinade and freeze it for another quick dinner. Ingredients: 6-8 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs 1 cup plain whole Greek yogurt ½ cup packed cilantro ½ cup chopped onion ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil 2 garlic cloves 2 tsp. fresh lime juice 2 tsp. garam masala ½ tsp. ground... read more
