Sleep Better

2016 Resolution #3: Sleep Better (and More!) This Year

Many clients that we see in our practice are worn out, run down, and confused as to why they don’t have the energy that they used to. After hearing these common complaints, we always ask them to describe their bedtime routine, including the amount of hours they get on average, the quality of their sleep (if they wake up during the night) and what time they are getting into bed.

Rice and Dal

I love cooking with lentils because they are so quick and easy. This recipe can be made in the slow cooker and is “one pot cooking” and warming comfort food at it’s best. Lentils are a great source of protein, fiber and iron. The soluble fiber in lentils helps to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar. Lentils are also a good source of folic acid and are considered a good food for supporting fertility.

Leftover Wraps

From the Be Well Kitchen: Leftover Wraps

Since being pregnant with my first child last year, I’ve become increasingly committed to ensuring our family is eating healthy, fresh food. Since then I’ve become one busy mama, so efficiency is now also incredibly important. I’m a big proponent of cooking once and eating twice, but it’s also nice to have some staple fridge clean-out meals in mind, ready to deploy when your leftovers are becoming unruly. Leftover wraps are one of my favorite solutions! The filling can be made with basically whatever’s on hand (rice, beans and veggies work great), and rolled up in cabbage, collard, kale, or any big leafy green.
