The Nutrition Detective for Your Soul

As I ponder this Saturday afternoon… on the intricate nature of our lives, I want to reach out to those inquiring about life within the bigger picture. For instance, why are some of us unusually attracted to Native American teachings, paintings, books, quotes, and news? Why do we stand at awe in front of a mountain, or gaze in wonderment while visiting beautiful scenery through the lens of our friends camera? Has this happened to you? Have you noticed the perfection of nature and wondered…. is everything in perfect order? Are the ups and downs of my life perfect for MY life lessons? I’ve decided to create a Facebook page dedicated to sharing our experiences, asking our questions * without judgement * and learning from each other. The time has come to explore this side of ourselves, and when you are ready, I will be there for you. When you are ready, the link is: Nutrition Detective for Your Soul Many health coaching clients come to me, not having anyone to talk to about this stuff.  You are not alone! The time is now, we all need to talk about it and share ideas. The Earth needs our loving support to remain sustainable.  Finding our heart connections, our people,  our tribe… in this ever changing world has never been more crucial. Won’t you help bring us together? Won’t you join us at the Nutrition Detective for Your Soul community page. Many Blessings, Health Coach and Seeker of “Who Am I?” Deb Coach...

The month of LOVE is upon us. I invite you to love yourself enough to take the next step on your healing journey, whatever that might be for YOU! ♥ Sunday Kitchen Tip: I often coach my clients to purchase and prepare some of their foods on Sunday, to ease the burden of working full time and not having enough time for eating healthy… Monday thru Friday. This is a great idea for storing romaine lettuce. Buy organic when possible, clean, shop, and dry off (I love the salad spinner my son gave me for Christmas), then store the greens in mason jars in the refrigerator. Drying the lettuce helps to keep it from turning brown. Paper or cloth  towels work too.Visit my website to learn more about my programs, and how a health coach might benefit you in eating a clean diet in 2013! ♥ Creamy Buckwheat Groats ♥  No cooking involved! One of my new favorite foods might be considered an uncommon item in a traditional kitchen. And the picture is certainly not as pretty as a colorful salad, but worth sharing. Raw Buckwheat Groats can be found at your local co-op. We are lucky in our area to have Greenstar Natural Foods Co-op where these delicious gems can be found in the bulk section. Raw Buckwheat Groats are a seed (not a grain), and loaded with protein. They are gluten-free, and can be eaten raw (soaked) or cooked. I prefer them soaked and blended with other delicious ingredients. Comforting?… YES!  Delicious? …YES!  Kid approved? …YES!Recipe ¼ cup raw buckwheat groats 1 Cup of filtered water 2-3...
