Hello and Welcome!My name is Maria and I am passionate about…some might even say “obsessed with”…food! Mostly the healthy, organic, local, seasonal sort of food. I love searching for and creating new recipes to use the food that is available to me in a way that tastes good while also nourishing our bodies, our souls, and the planet.Easier said than done, right? If you also want to eat healthy, save time, and enjoy life, I hope that you will find something here that inspires and motivates you to try something new. Big changes can only be made with small steps!Start Your Journey Here Try a New Seasonal Recipe Today Apple Cider MimosasKale and Potato MashQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaGingerbread GranolaVegetarian Loaded Baked PotatoesWinter SangriaSlow Cooker ChiliBloody Mary Pot RoastBasic Massaged Kale SaladSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataRoasted Butternut Squash and Sausage FrittataSpice-Roasted CarrotsWinter Farro Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and GreensMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladSlow Cooker Sausage and Barley StewRoasted Red Pepper and Tomato SoupOrange Cranberry Nut MuffinsWarm Turmeric Milk LatteMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteWhat I’ve been cooking up!
