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 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.
