  • How Mindfulness Can Help Your New Year Resolutions Stick

    Mindfulness 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 bit forced to me. I get the logic: new year=clean slate. But just because the calendar h…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Hearty Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

    Ready for the Oven
    Meatless 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 ma…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Chewy Sautéed Tofu

    Meatless 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 to snoop around for any possible pr…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Get Your Kale On

    Meatless 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 my clothing was permeated with pizza scent. When I stoppe…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Pappardelle Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash

    Meatless Monday: Butternut Squash and Pappardelle Pasta I’ll admit I’m a cookbook junkie. I probably inherited this trait from my maternal grandmother, who kept a tall stack of Gourmet magazines on a little bench that I inherited some years ago. She just enjoyed reading them. I’m the same way. I love to read cookbooks, even though I may never get around to making the recipes I read. So even with a veritable library of vegetarian and vegan…continue reading
  • Meatless Monday: Garlicky Kale with Tahini Dressing

    Garlicky Kale Shown with Fried Green Tomatoes
    Meatless Monday: A Kale Preparation to Die For

    Okay. I admit it. I love kale. I don’t just love it because it’s oh-so-trendy. I’ve grown it and eaten it since the mid-1980s. Maybe I’m just imagining it, but I feel sharper and more alive after I’ve eaten it.

    I also love growing it. It’s a truly sustainable vegetable. A half dozen plants supply me with more then enough kale for myself and my p…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Oven-Roasted Tomatoes

    Ready for Roasting
    Meatless Monday: Oven-Roasted Tomatoes

    Last week I wrote about ways to use up your green tomatoes, including seasonal favorites such as fried green tomatoes. I also included instructions for ripening tomatoes indoors in paper bags. This week, I had a sufficient number of paper-bag-ripened tomatoes that I needed to use them or lose them.

    One of my favorite preparations is to slow roast my indoor-ripened tomatoes in the oven. Roast…continue reading

    Winter Yoga: 6 Ways to Prepare for the Change of Seasons

    As fall turns to winter, it’s time to focus on nourishing our bodies and minds. Fall is the time when we prepare for winter hibernation, and for the cool, crisp and dry weather. We can tomatoes, put away hoses, repair the roof, tone muscles, and cleanse our bodies inside and out.

    Below are five easy practices to prepare your mind, body, and spirit for winter.

    1. Eat local root vegetables, wa…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: A Staple for Your Kitchen - Almonds

    Meatless Monday: Keep Almonds on Hand

    As a recent convert to the vegetarian lifestyle, I’ve come to appreciate almonds. Almonds are one of the “world’s healthiest foods,” and actually a food that I wasn’t particularly interested in until I understood its nutritional value. I came across my love for almonds as I was searching for alternate protein sources to meat. Come to find out, not only are almonds high in protein, but they also conta…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: What to Do with All Those Green Tomatoes

    The Yield from One Plant!
    Meatless Monday: Got Green Tomatoes? Here’s What to Do

    I picked the last of my tomatoes last week. Picking the last tomatoes—mostly green ones—and pulling up the plants is the first step to tucking in my garden beds for the winter.

    While I’ve grown vegetables in my back yard since the late 1980s, I didn’t learn until maybe 15 years ago about what to do with all the green tomatoes, besides using them as compost. A…continue reading
