Meatless Monday: Black Bean Quinoa Soup

posted by Charlotte Bell on February 8, 2016 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Black Bean Quinoa Soup I love soup in the wintertime. Slow cooking a pot of soup on the stove seems to warm my drafty, old house. The fragrance lingers for hours afterward. A pot of soup makes more than one meal, relieving the cook of the responsibility of planning and cooking at least one meal later in the week. And the best part: leftovers are even better than

Meatless Monday: Red Velvet Soup

posted by Charlotte Bell on January 25, 2016 |

Red Velvet Soup for Meatless Monday The sense of smell is said to be the sense most closely linked to memory. The fragrance of certain foods, along with the taste, can sometimes catapult me to another time and place. Such is the case with today’s recipe. I first tasted Red Velvet Soup a few weeks into a 30-day silent Insight Meditation retreat at The Last Resort in Duck Creek, Utah,

yogic help for headachesYogic Help for Headaches Some of us suffer from minor headaches occasionally and we don’t always have or want to take something. This article is for you. Sometimes we know what’s caused our headache—fumes from the engine my son started in the garage, bright sunlight, someone close by wearing too much perfume—yet many times we do not. If you get consistent headaches, you might look at your diet, hormonal cycle,

Meatless Monday: Vegan Raspberry-Almond “Torte” Cookies

posted by Charlotte Bell on January 18, 2016 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Vegan Sweets! I’ve been sharing meatless recipes on this blog for a little over a year now. I just realized that in all that time, I’ve shared only one dessert. That definitely needs to be rectified. Last weekend I made some cookies for a gathering of friends. The recipe is an old favorite of mine that I’ve been making for decades. It comes from a cookbook I’ve used

Meatless Monday: Tuscan Kale and White Bean Stew with Breadcrumb Topping

posted by Charlotte Bell on January 11, 2016 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Savory Kale, Mushroom and White Bean Stew Soups and stews are my wintertime go-tos. I love being able to make a meal and enjoy it again later after the flavors have integrated. Soups and stews fit that bill perfectly. Today’s recipe, Tuscan White Bean Stew with Breadcrumb Topping, is warm and savory, but I especially enjoyed the crunch of the breadcrumb topping. I used Great Harvest Multigrain Sourdough

Meatless Monday: Chickpea Lentil Quinoa Spinach Stew

posted by Charlotte Bell on January 4, 2016 |

meatless mondayMake a Protein-Rich One-Pot Meal for Meatless Monday After a somewhat chaotic, unpredictable holiday schedule, I’m enjoying settling back into “normal” life. One of my favorite relaxation activities—besides practicing asana—is to read cookbooks. I inherited this from my maternal grandmother, who always had a stack of Gourmet magazines on a stool in her kitchen. That same stool now occupies a spot in my own kitchen. It turns out that my

How Mindfulness Can Help Your New Year Resolutions Stick

posted by Charlotte Bell on December 31, 2015 |

new yearMindfulness for a New Year I want to say at the outset that I’ve never been big on New Year’s resolutions. It’s not that resolving to change old habits and develop new ones is not a worthy endeavor. It is, and I think it’s the most important work of our lives. It’s just that doing it simply because it happens to be the beginning of a new year seems a

Meatless Monday: Hearty Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

posted by Charlotte Bell on December 28, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Vegan Shepherd’s Pie Temperatures here in Northern Utah have been well below freezing for the past week. Because I live in a drafty old house, I’ve been enjoying adding a little extra heat to my environment by using my oven. In addition, I’ve been enjoying warming my insides eating foods that help create internal heat. Think root veggies and wintry Brussels sprouts. For my Christmas dinner contribution I

Meatless Monday: Chewy Sautéed Tofu

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Simple Tofu Preparation for Stir Fries and Beyond In 1986, not long after Great Basin National Park was designated as a national park, I traveled there to visit its ancient Bristlecone Pine forest. In order to get there, we had to travel through Utah’s vast west desert. There’s not a whole lot of civilization out there, so when we stopped at a little gas station/convenience store, we decided

Meatless Monday: Get Your Kale On

posted by Charlotte Bell on December 14, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Pizza with Kale and Caramelized Onions When I was in college at Indiana University, I paid my tuition, housing and expenses from the salary and tips I earned serving at a well-known Bloomington haunt, Mother Bear’s Pizza Barn. Needless to say, I ate a lot of pizza back then. I ate pizza on my shifts, and when I came home, my roommate’s dog would follow me around because
