Asian Omelette with Napa Cabbage and Shiitake Mushrooms Recipe [Vegetarian, Gluten-free]

This omelette was inspired by a CSA-induced surplus of cabbage and unwieldy scallions, as well as a bottle of this flavorful Asian stir fry oil that is infused with fried onions, garlic, and ginger. However, I adapted the recipe below so that you can make it without that specific oil. (If you have the oil, you're free to omit the ginger and garlic.) If you don't have napa cabbage, use bok choy as a substitute.

Kohlrabi Kale Coleslaw Recipe [Vegan, Gluten-free, Raw]

Have you tried kohlrabi yet? It's the texture of broccoli stems and has a mild, slightly sweet flavor. I love it sauteed with other veggies, but it's also yummy raw and really shines in this coleslaw.  This unique and impressive simple slaw is a great vegan and vegetarian dish to serve at your BBQ or picnic.

IIN's Spring Cleaning Guide [Free Printable!]

Looking for a fresh and holistic take on self-care? Get the new Spring Cleaning Guide from Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

A healthy home is as important a part of self-care as diet and exercise. (Just think about how light you feel when you enter a freshly cleaned room or think about how down you feel when your home or office is messy.) This FREE exclusive guide will help you:
  • Cleanse your home using ingredients right from your pantry.
  • Balance the energy flow in your home to nourish your mind and soul.
  • Enhance your quality of life!

My favorite part of the guide is "5 ways to use house plants to enhance your quality of life." I knew plants are useful for cleaning the air of toxins, but I was surprised to learn that plants increase dopamine production in the brain, which contributes to feelings of happiness, enhanced cognitive ability, and even heightened creativity.

Leave a comment and let me know if you feel a connection between your home and your personal well-being.
