listen to your body

love this!

love this!

How come your best friend thrives off of eating a raw, vegan diet that leaves you feeling cranky, drained and constantly craving good old cooked food?  Unfortunately, there isn’t a one-size fits all approach to healthy eating.

What works for some may not work for others.  

So where does that leave you, how do you know what foods to eat?  Use your body as a laboratory!  Listen to it and learn what fuels you best.  Experiment and keep a food journal to connect the dots.  For example, start off each morning with a different breakfast.  One morning eat a grain-based meal, the next morning have a breakfast high in protein, then the next morning have a light breakfast of fruit.   Monitor and record how you feel 1-2 hours after eating.  Maybe you will discover you feel sluggish and reaching for sugary snacks when you started the day off with a bowl of oatmeal.  Use this information to create a “diet” that is unique to your needs!

Take the time, experiment, and listen to what your body is telling you!

The more you listen, the more you will learn!

touch a truck and tempeh chili


It certainly doesn’t feel like April out there!  Its freezing and I could not warm up today!  We started off our day by enjoying breakfast with friends and family at The Wicked Oyster. We then proceeded to “touch a truck,” a bunch of dump trucks, fire engines, bulldozers and such on display for kids to enjoy.  It’s kind of a big deal.  Even at such a young age Noah is OBSESSED with trucks (how do boys know to like trucks?) and loved seeing them up close and personal (minus their loud horns).  After walking around outside we were FREEZING!  To warm us up I decided to make tempeh chili for dinner.  This is one of our “go-to” meals.  It cooks up quick and can be adapted using whatever you have on hand.

Tempeh chili


4 ribs celery, chopped

1 red onion, diced

5 cloves garlic

2 carrots, chopped

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

2 tablespoons Bragg’s amino acids (can substitute soy sauce or tamari)

1 block tempeh, crumbled

1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, rinsed (black beans or kidney beans work well too)

1 can low sodium veggie broth

2 cups water

salt and pepper

a few large glugs of olive oil

Cholula Hot Sauce to taste!

-Pour a few generous glugs of olive oil into saucepan and heat on medium high.

 -Sauté onions, carrots, celery and garlic until they are cooked down and the onions start to caramelize.

-Add Bragg’s, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and cook until spices become fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

-Add crumbled tempeh and cook for 2-3 min or until tempeh is lightly browned.

-Stir in broth, water and beans.

-Bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer for 45 min or until flavors are nicely blended.

I’ve added corn, red pepper and zucchini in the past.  You can even leave out the tempeh and use two cans of beans instead.  It’s a great recipe to use when you need to clean out the refrigerator…get creative!
