A Tasty Case for Kale

Need more inspiration to incorporate greens in your diet? Lia shows you how on Good Cookin’ with Bruce Aidells on the LiveWell Network. Watch this, and I’ll bet you’ll want to make her Braised Kale and Feta Tartines for supper tonight!

Be Good to Yourself

What’s one of the best steps you can take to for your health? Be kind to yourself, according to this New York Times Well blog post. Researchers say people who are “self-compassionate” tend to eat better than those who are hard on themselves.

School Farm Stand

We love this idea by the Parent Teacher Student Association at Golden Avenue Elementary School in Lemon Grove, Calif.: A weekly mini farmers’ market selling produce grown by local farmers. As Chris Huard reports on the Lemon Grove Patch, the program was launched in December to foster healthy eating habits in the community. It’s just one of two school-based farmers’ markets in the state.

To learn about another unique school program, check out Cheryl’s story about a Northern California mom who organized a garden at her kids’ school to supply a local food bank with fresh produce.

Revamp Your Relationship with Food!

We’re very excited about the relaunch of My Nourish Mentor, Lia’s 12-week, online coaching program for those who want hands-on strategies to foster a healthy relationship with food. Check out this video to learn more about how this life-changing program works.

    Lia, that braised kale looks so scrumptious and amazing! It will be months before we can even think about such things, as we still have about 18 inches of snow on the ground- and more on the way!

    But it sure is lovely to see, and file away in the memory banks for when the fresh produce FINALLY starts flowing from the garden. This is tops on the list right now.

    It’ll be here before you know it, Erika! Are there any farms growing hardy greens in greenhouses? You might be able to find some in the resources lists here in Seasonality Out of Season http://nourishnetwork.com/2011/02/09/seasonality-out-of-season/. I’ll tell you though … this puppy’s worth the wait ;-).
