Every year we struggle with holiday shopping. We want to be conscientious, sustainable; we do not want to consume more than we need. We dread the stampedes at holiday sales at malls. We want to support small businesses.
In short, we want to feel good about the gifts we give. And we want people to love the gifts we give.

The holidays will come and go and where will we all be? Happy and healthy or wondering why we did what we did…again. Long winter days provide the perfect encouragement to get in the kitchen and cook healthy, nourishing meals. As winter changes to spring (and it will…not soon enough, but it will…), we can either be strong and vital or sluggish and thinking of detoxes before we face the sunny days of summer. Join me as we cook our through winter into spring with a summer finale that will begin the next season of fun in the sun deliciously!

As the holiday season heats up, we get busier and busier…and it becomes more challenging to cook from scratch so we stay strong and healthy.
One of my go-to methods for keeping us on an even keel is to make several varieties of soups and freeze them in portioned containers. I thaw them as I need and serve them with some quickly steamed greens or a salad and some crisp whole grain bread for a light repast that keeps all our burners firing!
