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.

How to get your kids to eat oatmeal (and other breakfast ideas)

Breakfast is for champions. It is the most important meal of the day, but not just because it gives you energy and fuels your metabolism (which it does). It’s also important because of what you choose to eat. By skipping breakfast or making poor food choices early on, you might be setting yourself up for failure later in the day. Typical breakfast foods often consist of sugary cereals, sugary yogurt, packaged bars, pastries, and other bread products such as bagel and toast. These, along with a cup of coffee, are quick and easy choices for rushed mornings. However, eating something full of highly refined carbohydrates and sugar, especially on an empty stomach, will cause a dramatic shift in blood sugar levels and leave you with less energy in the long run. Over time, this could disrupt the fragile hormonal balance that allows your metabolic processes to function. In other words, breakfast can help keep your metabolism working at top notch and allow you to lose weight. Another great reason to eat breakfast, especially one that contains protein: it helps prevent sugar cravings later in the day. I urge you to eat a healthy breakfast every morning by planning ahead of time and expanding your perception of what “breakfast” foods are, since many are so unhealthy. Try out some of these new suggestions and it may open your mind to more nutritious possibilities. 10 super-charged [and creative] breakfast options 1) Homemade miso soup with mushrooms, green onion, tofu, and nori 2) Polenta porridge- combine 1/3 cup dry polenta with 1 1/3 cup water, bring to boil and stir until soft and... read more

Raw Almond Oat Bars

Raw Oatmeal Almond Bars I have a tendency of being overzealous in the kitchen and making recipes way too complicated. When working with small children who have short attention spans, however, it behooves me to stick with something simple and limit the ingredients. Turns out things are often more delicious that way anyway! Thus, here is the recipe I created for last weekend’s DirectionFive kids’ cooking demonstration at the Marin Mart Farmers Market. Our monthly appearance at the market has been a great success so far; parents love seeing their kids interested in cooking and trying new, whole food recipes. This one is especially fun and easy because the food processor is always a spectacle for 2 to 4-year-olds, plus they get to get their little hands dirty. Ingredients: 1 cup raw almonds 1 cup whole oats 1 cup pitted dates 3 Tbs. honey 3 Tbs. flax meal 3/4 tsp. cinnamon 1) Pulse almonds in a food processor until coarsely ground. 2) Add the oats, and pulse a few times. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until all is incorporated, but still a bit chunky and barely moist. Add a tablespoon of warm water if the mixture is too dry to work with. 3) Line a square baking dish, about 9×9 (but any container with a flat bottom will do), with parchment paper. Empty the contents of the food processor in to the baking dish and press down firmly with fingers until the mixture is compact. 4) Lift parchment paper out of the baking dish, cut in to squares and serve. Store in fridge or freezer. **Be creative! There are plenty of options to play... read more
