Strawberry Cake



Its strawberry season in North Carolina and we are blessed to have a farm about 5 minutes down the road from us, this was a fun cake to make and the butter icing is so pretty with the natural pink. It is also fun decorating with edible flowers.

Sunchokes Roasted with Rosemary



I have been getting produce direct from local farms recently, and one just up the road had sunchokes available and since I had never tried them before I figured why not. Sunchokes are a tubular-shaped, root vegetable of the sunflower plant family in season from late fall through early spring. They look a little like ginger, they are a great source of iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Here is a super easy recipe for them, they are unique and very different from potatoes much more nutty in flavor profile with a nice crunch.


Ingredients
  • about 10 sun chokes, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary 
  • a dash of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste 
Method:

  1. heat the oven to 400F 
  2. slice the sun chokes, add olive oil, salt and pepper and rosemary 
  3. roast for about 25-30 minutes

Lovely Meditation

At this very difficult time of Covid 19 you may be feeling overwhelmed and anxious I came across this lovely guided meditation yesterday and thought I would share, here's the link- 
I often recommend meditation and getting in nature to my clients at Anchored Nutrition Therapy. Such a great tool to cope with stress. 
I also have been writing Nutrition tips on the blog, feel free to check it out. 


I thought I would add my own nature meditation -

Split Pea Soup



This is an easy soup made with dried split peas, I soaked these for about 2 hours to soften them, at this uncertain time of coronavirus/ covid 19 with many of us at home, dried peas, lentils and beans (also canned) come in handy.
