Asheville, NC: Where to Stay and Eat

Chocolate-Dipped “Caramel” Nut Pops (4 Ingredients)

“Oooooooh ya, baby!” … out of the mouth of my innocent 7-yr-old babe when I handed him one of these Chocolate-Dipped “Caramel” Nut Pops. Followed my “mmm, mmmm” and “I want another one”.

It makes me laugh and celebrate at the same time when kids act so over the top about a healthy snack. This […]

I can’t say enough about this woman. She isn’t just a doctor in the conventional sense of the word, but in the modern-traditional sense as well. She is a teacher and a healer.

Hearty Mushroom Soup (Vegan, Grain Free)

This mushroom soup has a deep round flavor without being overwhelming. The carrots and potatoes make it heartier while keeping it light on the digestion.

I loved it in concept, before it was even born, which is why last week I decided to made a vat. My husband and I had it for lunch and […]

Weekly Meal Plan and Fasting Preparations

Recently, in a post about buckwheat crepes on The Nourishing Gourmet, I shared that I was contemplating whether or not I should commit to this year’s Russian Orthodox Lenten fast.
