Meatless Monday: A Not-Too-Sweet Dessert

posted by Charlotte Bell on July 27, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Black Rice Pudding with Fruit Topping I love taking advantage of the availability of fresh, organic fruits in the summertime.

kale saladMeatless Monday: Kale Salad with Miso-Roasted Tofu As my backyard kale started to proliferate a few months ago, I posted a couple of kale salad recipes (here’s one and here’s the other). Even later in the season, I find that my fresh-picked, homegrown kale is much more tender than what I find at the store. Kale salads are a great way to use tender leaves, and this particular salad, that

yoga for gardeningYoga for Gardening: Relief for Your Achin’ Back Springtime signals blooming bulbs, veggie planting and for me, lots of requests from students for yoga poses to counteract the effects of gardening. Shoveling, squatting, kneeling and bending over—the forms your body has to assume to get your garden ready for planting—all take a toll, especially when we likely haven’t been doing these things much over the winter.

Meatless Monday: Snobby Joes

posted by Charlotte Bell on March 16, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: A Vegan Take on an Old Favorite Meatless Monday wouldn’t be complete without the occasional vegetarian version of a carnivorous favorite.
