A huge thank you to all you attended the Heart Health workshop on Saturday March 23rd. I appreciated discussion and questions regarding the material presented. We always have an interesting and inquiring group of people, and it was encouraging to see men attending and supporting their health and their partners. We had a lot of food, and some fun with preparation!
The pasta and legume salad was a hit, so I’ve included the recipe here. The Beet and Cucumber Salad is in Eat Away Illness, and the Cashew Cheese Loaf, Jack Cheese, and Dahl are in Cook Your Way to Health.
Chickpea Pasta Protein Salad
1 cup chickpea rotini pasta
1 cup quinoa spiral pasta
2 cups carrots, diced
1 cup chopped kale or greens (may use frozen)
6 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup Tamari soy sauce
2 T. brown rice vinegar
2 T. toasted sesame oil
pinch unrefined sea salt
2 T. toasted sesame seeds.
Variation: use 1 cup cooked white beans instead of chickpea rotini, and add with step 3.
- Cook chickpea rotini for 9 minutes, rinse, and drain and set aside.
- Cook quinoa spirals with chopped carrots until el dente, approximately 5 minutes.
- Add chopped greens (and beans if using) and return to boil, remove from heat and drain.
- Add green onions and chickpea rotini and combine.
- Make dressing and combine with salad.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve warm or room temperature.
Note: Today I heard that one participant made this salad with lentils instead of the rotini. Any legume will enhance the amino acid balance of this salad. The picture below is with white beans rather than rotini.
To your heart health;

Well it seems this cold weather has altered many a life. I have had to move the date from February to March 9th! February was Valentines and Heart month, but it was not to be…. Please call to save your spot; etransfers appreciated.

Well it seems a lot of people are again making this Cashew Loaf recipe. It was published in my first book Cook Your Way to Health, and I used it a lot in my work with gluten-free clients. Now it seems it is KETO!! The new diet craze! I will be discussing the pros and cons of the Keto diet at my workshop on March 9th on Heart Health, but meanwhile, here is the recipe. It is great cold, toasted, or with your choice of spreads.
Cashew Cheese Loaf
This wonderfully easy to make loaf is loaded with protein and good fats, and makes a satisfying breakfast or snack.
2 1/2 cups ground raw cashew pieces (may use almonds) (I grind these in my Nutri Bullet just prior to mixing)
1/4 cup soft butter, ghee or coconut oil
1 cup grated cheese of choice (goat Feta is tangy; as is old Cheddar, Goat cheddar is great)
1 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs, slightly beaten
- Heat oven to 350 F.
- Mix butter or coconut oil with nut flour and cheese.
- Add eggs and baking soda.
- Pour into parchment lined 4″ x 8″ loaf pan.
- Bake about 1 hour, or until top is nicely browned.
- Remove with parchment from pan and cool on wire rack.
I like this loaf toasted with the Jack Cheese as a spread. Or try Lemon Curd. Both of these recipes are in Cook Your Way to Health as well, now available as a download on my website for $7.99 if you don’t already have it.
Note: Remember to purchase raw nuts from a fridge at your health food store, and store them in the freezer or fridge until use to preserve the quality of the unsaturated fat.

Savor this smooth nutritious soup in this frigid weather. It is -32 here today! I like to make lots of this and have it in the freezer. I sprinkle a few toasted slivered almonds on top and a swirl of organic whipping cream. Yum! Round out your lunch with egg salad on whole grain crackers. Vitamin A, protein, natural fats; a winner all around.
I grew these Waltham Butternuts in my garden last year.
Butternut Squash Soup
Thanks to Claire for this idea. I’ve added my own idea of spices, and I’ve tried it with Turban Squash as well. Still very good, but not as good as with Butternut.
2 tbsp. butter or ghee for dairy-free
2 small onions, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, chopped
2 medium potatoes, cubed
1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
32 oz. chicken stock
unrefined sea salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. cumin (used black cumin)
sprinkle of sea veggies
slivered toasted almonds
splash of whipping cream for garnish
- Melt butter or ghee and cook all veggies about 5 minutes in a large saucepan.
- Pour in some chicken stock and the herbs and seasonings and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 40 minutes or until veggies are tender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Return to pot, add remaining chicken stock to desired consistency.
- Serve with a sprinkle of almonds and a splash of whipping cream
Coming up in February will be a cooking day on Heart Health and a Women’s Health and Quilting Retreat.

Here is a quick and easy way to add cauliflower to your diet. Remember that cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower are very beneficial in preventing cancer, and when baked or steamed, do not interfere with thyroid function. Costco had a large bag of florets so I have made this twice, and plan to use the remainder of the cauliflower to make Millet Mashed Potatoes, page 136 in Eat Away Illness. We all need some carbs everyday, and millet is gluten-free and easy on the digestion.
Add this to the oven when you are baking potatoes and/or other entrees, and dinner is ready!
1/2 cup raw cashews
2 T. nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. ground black cumin seed
1/2 tsp. unrefined sea salt
- Wash and slice cauliflower into about 1/2″ thick slices, and place on parchment paper on baking tray.
- Blend remaining ingredients in Nutribullet or blender.
- Brush cauliflower slices with olive oil and sprinkle mixture evenly over slices.
- Bake at 400 F. for 12 – 15 minutes or until desired tenderness.
A BIG thank you to all who attended the Pretty Natural workshop last Friday. We had such fun! Successes, and some interesting results! Orange cookie shaped bath balms were a good laugh. But seriously, the lip balms, deodorants, lotions, rubs, cleansers and foods all seemed to be a hit. I experimented with desserts, and we had the Banana Nut Bread and Peanut Butter Cookies made with dehydrated almond nut pulp, as well as Coconut Protein Bars. Hopefully these will show up in your homes at Christmas in place of some of the flour and sugar cookies so popular at Christmas.
Lotion #1, Lotion #2 with Aloe Vera gel, group shot minus Gwen, and some of the products, including our funny Bath Balms!
Love my group workshops!

How about some easy to make super healthy little protein snacks? I have been experimenting with these and found two variations that I like. You will get to sample both if you are coming to the workshop. Friday November 30th from 10:00 – 3:00 we will be learning about how the chemicals in our body products and cleansers affect our brain and our body, and how to replace and make your own natural products. We will also be cooking up a lunch with super nutritious foods, so join us for a fun day in the country! Carpooling available.
|Coconut Lemon Protein Balls
I experimented with different protein powders and when using the Vegan powder, I used a full 1/2 cup of coconut oil, but with the collagen powder, less was needed. The slightly darker balls are made with the vegan protein. I’ve taken someone else’s recipe and made it with a complete amino acid profile. Feel free to eat these little morsels without guilt.
1/4 cup Go Pro goat protein powder
1/4 cup collagen powder
2 tbsp. Coconut flour
Zest of one organic lemon
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
2 tbsp. Lemon juice
2 tbsp. Liquid honey
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
1. Place protein powder, collagen powder, coconut flour in a bowl.
2. Zest the organic lemon over this mixture, and combine well.
3. Melt the coconut oil, and add the liquid honey and lemon juice.
4. Pour over the flour mixture and combine well.
5. Add the coconut shreds and combine.
6. Roll into small balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet in the fridge until well set, about 1/2 hour.
Why not try dipping these in melted 100% cacao baking chocolate mixed with a little honey?
Please call me at 306-244-8890 or 306-997-9797 to register for the workshop. For more info https://eatawayillnessbulletins.wordpress.com/2018/11/07/pretty-natural/
