Since I decided to purchase an Instant Pot, I have found that it has become my favorite thing in my kitchen! The versatility of this equipment has changed my approach to home cooked meals. The time and effort it takes is like no other and I have to say as a Chef sometimes the last thing I want to do is slave over another stove. This recipe can about on a cold winter’s night. I was craving something hardy, stewed, and delicious. The beautiful thing about this dish is that you can use almost any ingredient you have on hand. It is such a versatile dish just like the Instant Pot. You will find yourself craving this dish on a cold night after making it once!
Stress makes everything so much harder and no one is immune to it. Stress comes from a variety of issues work, school, illness, current events, and wide range of other issues. Oftentimes, we are dealing with multiple sources at once. It can be overwhelming or running at a low buzz in the background, but rarely are we free of it entirely. This is a major issue! Without managing stress a chemical, called cortisol, will run rampant in your body.
2021, a bright new year and another opportunity to get back on track with our health goals. Whole 30 has been a very popular diet for a number of years for good reason; it focuses on consuming lean meats, vegetables and fruits and eliminates potentially inflammatory foods like dairy, grains and processed sugars.
This vegan, plant based dish is a great substitute for a meat. Grilling the mushroom brings the familiar grilled flavor and combines with the hearty texture of the mushroom to fully satisfy your tastebuds!
I’m sure everyone is used to starting off the new year with a specific diet to try and lose weight. This will maybe go on for a month or two before we get tired of it and lose our “beginning of the year” motivation. As a chef of Whole Health Everyday, I want people to focus more on long term wellness of their body and not just a diet that will make them lose weight fast, but then gain it back once they get tired of the diet they are on. Instead of making a plan to follow a fad diet that is very restrictive, this New Year, make a resolution to break the dieting cycle. Create a nourishing, sustainable, eating pattern that works for you that will be reasonable to stick with long-term. This way, you could stick with this eating habit on vacations, during the holidays, and at any party or event.
No matter what your holidays look like this year, they're probably still stressful and stress has extremely negative effects on your health. Now's a great time to try something different and what could be more fun than goat yoga?
With fancy baked goods every where you turn this time of year, it's nice to have a slightly healthier classic to bring to the party. These chocolate chip cookies are gluten free and can be made with or without dairy butter. And you can make them ahead of time, roll the dough into balls and freeze them to take out and only bake as many as you need!
One of Chef Courtney's culinary specialties is cooking for the keto diet. She has honed her knowledge and expertise in this area and has come up with a proven weight loss diet. In fact, she currently is cooking for a client who has lost 15 pounds in 2 months while on this diet!
Starting new traditions this holiday season? Try Chef Frances's Romesco Shrimp Crostini with an original cilantro oil as an appetizer. It's simple enough for anyone to try to make and everyone will enjoy it!
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a year of change. We changed the way we work, changed the way we eat, and changed the way we go to school but we aren’t taking the time to change how we decompress after a long day.
