Let's Talk About...    



Maintaining those food & health resolutions 


The concept of New Year's resolutions, regardless of creed, is to gain self-improvement. Resolutions can set us up in a variety of ways from reaching out for help to loosing weight and gaining fitness to improving one's overall health.    


While the nature of yearly resolutions has changed during the last decades -- they're way more superficial and appearance-oriented than in previous times -- any resolution may be better than none.


Despite all the good intentions almost half of all people break their resolutions within half a year of less, research shows that making resolutions can be useful. It turns out that just making a resolution means you have 10 times more of a chance of actually attaining your goals versus people who never make a resolution at all. Resolutions are easier to  keep when you make it an action, not a goal. 


Popular resolutions are to:

  • Improve physical well-being: eat healthy food, lose weight, exercise more, eat better, drink less alcohol and drink more water, quit smoking, stop biting nails.
  • Improve mental well-being; think positive, laugh more often, enjoy life
  • Improve finances by making and saving money, and make small investments
While we at NourishMe may not be able to support you in paying off your personal debt we can help you with the first two.


Nutritional Therapy addresses not only one's physical well-being but one's mental well-being. Make an appointment with Julie Johnson at NourishMe to find out how nutrition could be the key to moving your forward into a healthier happier place.


Winter is not a good time for a cleanse. Instead, we want to eat nourishing, warming foods like soups, stews, bone broths and baked root vegetables. The next cleanse at NourishMe will be in mid-April.

Of course, the tricky aspect to a New Year's resolution is actually keeping it. One of the best ways is to enlist friends or family members to join you on this journey. Don't be too hard on yourself, and think of ways to mix it up and keep it fun.  


As for winter work-outs this is a great time to get in shape. When the weather is cold you actually can burn more calories. In fact, you can literally stand still outside and burn calories since your core temp drops when you're outside.

Since your body is programmed to maintain a temperature of 98.6 degrees fahrenheit it needs to exert energy to bring the temperature back up. So shiver away.

Staying active will also help you be stress free, and stay positive. Exercise affects the brain in multiple ways. It increases heart rate, which pumps more oxygen to the brain. It also releases hormones, which aids and provides a nourishing environment for the growth of brain cells.

Worried about hitting a wall, and breaking your resolution? Change it up. Hike instead of hitting the treadmill. Go to a dance class or yoga. And try not to beat yourself up if you slip.

Refocus, keep calm and move on.

January recipe

Soup is a great sustainable cuisine, wrote Phyllis Passariello in an essay called Sustainable Ominvores.


"Hearty stews and soups - this section might be called soul-y as well as hearty since it includes the heart and soul of our childhood cuisine. New World peasantry thrived on these filling and surprisingly healthy dishes, which are now enjoying a comeback due to the new 'colon awareness.'" 


Here is her recipe.  





Minestre is a hearty winter dish but can also be made in the spring with fresh young dandelion leaves pulled from your (pesticide-free) lawn.


1 can cannelli beans or white beans-cooked-from scratch

3 lbs escarole (dandelions)

2 cloves garlic

salt and pepper

Simmer ham bone in water.

Wash and stem greens, saving one cup of liquid. Set aside.

Brown minced salt pork in olive oil

Add greens and sauté

Add ham bone and liquid.

Add beans

Add water if too thick. Simmer for 5 minutes


Meanwhile ...


Farina Rossa


1 cup of corn meal

1 Tbs olive oil

Health News Flash

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has told the pharmaceutical industry to voluntarily "relabel a vast roster of antibiotics and restrict their use in food-animal production," according to a recent article in Newsday. 


Factory-farmed animals have been fed antibiotics and hormones for many years to increase their size  and weight. This practice ultimately drives up profits once the animals are butchered and sold. But those chemicals are causing an epidemic of multi-drug resistant bacteria, which are easily passed to humans.  


If pharmaceutical manufacturers comply with relabeling, it will be illegal for animal farmers to buy the medications to fatten flocks and herds.
