We need peace now

If you have not already heard the news coming out of Jerusalem today, you should know that 4 people were massacred while they were in their peaceful house of worship. 3 of the 4 were Americans. These are innocent civilians just going about their day; they are people with families who love them.

There is so much violence in the world, and this senseless tragedy is just one of many happening every day. My deepest condolences go out to the families of those killed and the injured victims and their families. We must all work harder to create a more peaceful world. Spread as much love as you can, there can never be enough.

Comforting Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Like all winter squashes, butternut squash is an excellent source of beta carotene, which provides the immune system with a healthy boost. This warm and comforting soup makes the perfect appetizer for a winter dinner party. Or you can pair it with with a slice of my organic pore-minimizing bread for the perfect lunch.

butternut squash soup


You will need:

1 large butternut squash, halved and seeded
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
3 quarts chicken stock
Freshly ground nutmeg
Sea salt
Freshly ground white pepper
3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil or tarragon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Place the squash skin side down in a roasting pan and roast, covered, for 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. When cooled, peel the squash and cut it into small chunks. Set aside.

In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the roasted squash and chicken stock. Add the nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste and cook for 30 minutes.

Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and puree until smooth (or use an immersion blender). Return the pureed soup to the pot and reheat. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Ladle the soup into serving bowls. Sprinkle with basil or tarragon and another grating of nutmeg before serving.

Serves 4 to 6

Add Healthy Root Vegetables to Your Diet this Fall

Root Veggies


It is always important to eat fresh produce that is in season. In the fall, root vegetables are abundant in grocery stores and they have so many health benefits. They are easy to prepare and are so delicious and good for you. Fall is the perfect time to add more root veggies to your diet; the weather is getting colder and we need to give our immune systems the boost that they need to keep our bodies healthy during cold and flu season.

Root vegetables, such as turnips, beets, sweet potatoes and parsnips are packed with the vitamins and minerals needed to support a healthy immune system. They contain lots of fiber which helps your digestive system, and vitamin A which supports the health of your eyes, bones and teeth. Many root veggies are also loaded with potassium which keeps your heart and other muscles working properly, as well as vitamin C which is crucial for fighting off illnesses. Additionally, root vegetables have many anti-inflammatory properties; this benefits every organ system in your body. For the skin, root veggies help create more collagen and may even get rid of Rosacea.

These veggies are delicious simply roasting them with olive oil, herbs and a dash of salt & pepper. Low in calories & sugar, they are the perfect addition to any meal!
