LYCOPENE PIE

Tomato season is one of my favorite times to eat all year and I wasn't prepared to welcome Autumn without one last recipe. This one nicely brings together the juicy, sweetness of the summer tomato with the more nutty, earthy and autumnal flavors of buckwheat and almond. This recipe is highly adaptable and I look forward to experimenting with other glutten-free ingredients like millet and teff flours. Once you have your crust recipe down the filling options are endless. A white bean based spread might be our next attempt and the colder air will bring further sweetness to swiss chard and other greens we can pile on high.  But for now, its all about the tomato. That wonderful fruit that makes its way into our...

Last week I was invited to the beautiful offices of Atelier Doré to share some skin-supporting recipes.

FEED YOUR SKIN FROM WITHIN : Shiso Poke Bowl

  Last week I was invited to the beautiful offices of Atelier Doré to share some skin-supporting recipes. When crafting these recipes I selected ingredients that are not only great for the skin but those that additionally support our various bodily systems and organs. After all, the health of our skin greatly depends on our overall health. What we put into our bodies affects the quality of our skin, and vice versa, what we put on our skin affects our overall health.  Please note that the salmon in this recipe can be replaced with various types of fresh fish, tempeh or seasoned tofu. We include salmon for its content of omegas and for its wide-spread availability but smaller, locally-sourced, seasonal fish will also work very well. Whatever you...

Not only are they aesthetically beautiful but they possess aromatherapeutic value and medicinal properties.The always elegant and classic rose promotes glowing skin, aids in the reduction of acne and eczema, and helps remove dirt and excess oils from the pores.

SUPER FOOD SMOOTHIE

A morning smoothie is a great way to pack in a lot of nutrition easily, quickly and on a daily basis. Once a week is better than nothing, but if possible, try to ingest body supporting herbs and superfoods daily. It’s certainly better to introduce small amounts of plant information regularly and over time than in heaping amounts just once in a while. We want to give our bodies a balanced variety of nutrients and allow our bodies to evolve with tonic herbs. As long as your source is good quality, and unadulterated, you should observe a shift towards better energy, improved immunity, reduced inflammation, regular digestion, and clear, glowing skin. – Jenna Levine, Founder & CEO This superfood recipe includes...
