Raw Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

We were blessed with the gift of a bag full of rhubarb from our naturopath, Dawn.  She had more than she knew what to do with, and we were more than happy to take a bunch off her hands.  :)  It is one of Dave’s spring favorites after all!  I have been messing around with…

Zucchini Hummus

So I recently went in to have my allergies, among other things, tested naturally by my naturopath, and my results showed I cannot do garbanzo beans anymore.  I’m SO SAD!  (But at the same time excited to know what my issues are to help some hormonal issues heal up..)  Since I am absolutely addicted to…

Blueberry-Lavender Coconut Creme

This creme is a delicious summer indulgence.  We enjoy it drizzled over fresh peach slices or on top of Greek yogurt and homemade granola.  Probably would be great on organic ice cream or steel cut oats?  Oooh the possibilities!  I’d say if you’re new to tasting/eating lavender, you might want to use a little bit…

Dr. BJ Hardick, co-author of THE book Maximized Living Nutrition Plans, was in Bloomington on Friday to give a [amazing] nutrition talk to the Maximized Living students.  Even though I had known about the talk for like a month, it honestly didn’t occur to me to surprise him with some healing treats until the night…
