Organic Soul

Today I had the pleasure of contributing an article to Organic Soul. Check it out!

An Alternative Approach to Health: The Many Benefits of Acupuncture!organic soul

If you’ve never heard of Organic Soul, they’re a great website offering articles, reviews, guides and even daily deals on healthy, natural, and sustainable living. As a person who has an interest in all three of those things, this website is right up my alley!

My favorite section, as you may have guessed, is the Organic Soul Recipes where they have lots of healthy and delicious recipes that are easy to make and fun to eat! I’m particularly excited to try a recipe for Organic Chicken Kalamata. You should expect that and a few others to come out of my kitchen in the very near future!

They also have a Daily Deals section which is similar to Groupon. Right now they’re offering a scrumptious deal on organic, vegan chocolate. That section is still growing but I suspect it to fill with lots of awesome deals pretty quickly!!

So that’s Organic Soul. I’m psyched that I found them. I love new and interesting companies that agree with my values and support my mission!! I’m hoping for the opportunity to write more articles for Organic Soul, so be sure to sign up for their newsletter and check back often!!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s guest post and more great information about alternative medicine!

Late as Usual Eggplant Casserole

Yesterday¬†was another late Tuesday and with nothing in the crock pot. Fortunately my Farm Fresh To¬†You box arrived in the morning and in it the recipe and ingredients for a delicious dish. It didn’t take seconds to make but I had a late lunch and it was well worth the wait. I was missing an ingredient from the original recipe which I know would have made it perfect but it was good all the same.

I’m not sure who this recipe came from. Each week Farm Fresh includes a few recipes from their patrons. Actually, you get $5 off your next delivery if your recipe is picked. I haven’t gotten around to submitting one yet. My kitchen creativity has been below par these days. Thank you, wherever you are! Your submission is much appreciated.

Eggplant Casserole

  • 1 eggplant – pared and diced
  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • fresh basil – to taste
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onions and eggplant and cook on low until eggplant is tender. Add tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper and simmer for a few more minutes. Transfer to a casserole dish and bake at 325¬į for 40 minutes.

That’s it! You can certainly serve this over rice or pasta, or add meat and other veggies but we ate it alone, as is, and it was perfect, especially since it was late at night and there was no need for a heavy meal. The original recipe called for bell peppers of which I had none but I will definitely add them next time. For a little punch, we added some hot sauce!¬† The All-Star went back for thirds.

Happy Cooking!

p.s. Sorry for the terrible pictures. I no longer have a camera and life has taken precedence over my photography skills. Smiley

Eating Well

I found this website that I really like: EatingWell.com.  eating well webpage

I think Eating Well started as a magazine but who needs paper when you’ve got all their delicious recipes and diet help right at your web-browsing fingertips.¬†¬†I especially like their Diet, Nutrition and Health section where you can find descent information about food and your health as well as special recipes for those with specific diet needs,¬†ie.¬†gluten free, diabetes, low calorie, etc.¬†¬†They also include nutritional facts, which is always good.¬† I’m certainly not saying this is the end all website of healthy cooking but like I say, “when in doubt, go home-made” and this is another great resource for adding healthy choices to your personal recipe collection.¬†

As always, use your discretion and make healthy diet choices that are best for you.  When in doubt, follow the advice of your doctor.
