Go Beyond The Salad

By | Food for thought, Recipes, Wellness

When you think about healthy eating, salads and green vegetables usually come to mind. But how about adding a little more variety to your plan? Roots like carrots, sweet potatoes, and turnips, are a rich source of nutritious complex carbohydrates. Instead of upsetting blood sugar levels like refined sweet foods do, they help regulate them. Why Eat More Root Veggies? Long roots – carrots, parsnips, burdock, and daikon radish – are excellent blood purifiers and can help improve circulation in…

Great Grilling

By | Recipes, Wellness

Even though the kids are back in school, summer is not over. We are still enjoying the warm weather and long sunny days.   We have given our oven a break, and have fired up the BBQ most nights for some delicious grilled grub. One of my favorite things about summer is less cooking indoors.  Here at the Marshall Manor, we grill up just about anything.   Sure we cook up the usual suspects like steaks, fish, chicken, but we also like…

What you eat will do one of two things.  It will serve to build your health, or tear it down.  Plain and simple.  People think that because I am a Health Coach, and “eat healthy” that I’m missing out…deprived… living a life full of restrictions and rules.  Lists and lists of what I can’t eat and do. Jokes on them.  Did you know there are so many amazing delicious foods that bring healing, vitality, longevity, energy, strength,…

Elevated Tuna Salad

By | Recipes

I have never been especially crazy about tuna salad, until I found this fantastic tuna caught locally off the central coast of California.  If you can find good quality tuna, it makes all the difference in your wraps, or sandwiches. My new favorite is Capriccio!  This is by far the best tuna I have ever had in a can. Diane and Wayne Moody, fishing from their boat, Capriccio, out of Morro Bay, California, catch albacore tuna using sustainable hook-and-line methods….

By | Recipes, Wellness

  Juice it My husband bought us the Jack Lalanne juicer years ago before my interest in health and fitness really took off. We only used it Christmas morning for our fresh OJ. I have been experimenting with juicing now for a few years, and I love it. When I first started, I liked it sweet so I used plenty of apples, pears, carrots and beets. That changed as I began to venture out, and juice a variety of fresh…

Yummy Yammy Brownies

Grain Free Chocolate Brownies Let’s face it.   Who doesn’t love brownies? Especially the gooey ones with warm chocolate sauce drizzled all over the top. Have I got your attention?   Love-Love Relationship Many people have a love-hate relationship with decadent food. They love to eat it, and hate the way they feel afterward.

Fat is Not Making You Fat

By | Food for thought, Recipes, Wellness

Fat is Not Making You Fat We have been told to stay away from fat containing foods for years now. Doctors and medical professionals are now understanding that fat is not what causes heart disease, and obesity. Fat is actually a really good thing. It plays several roles in our bodies. It allows our cell walls to remain flexible and permeable. We need it for mental health. Our brain is actually made up of 60% fat. The brain runs on…
