How to Keep Well This Spring

Spring has finally sprung and that means more time enjoying beloved outdoor pastimes like running, gardening and the like. If you haven’t been as active during the winter, getting back in to the swing of things may trigger a few new aches and pains. Here are a few things to keep in mind to avoid being sidelined: Listen to your body. Whether hiking a new trail or cleaning out the garage, it’s important to not overexert yourself. For example, if you haven’t run in months, you may not want to run five miles the first day out. Instead gradually increase the distance you run each time. Maintain a balanced diet. Just as it’s important to eat healthy during winter to help ward off seasonal viruses,

Rise Up In Spring: Thinking Like A Plant

Every spring, I dig up dandelions. When I started my first garden, this was an act of fear: “If I don’t get them out now,” I used to think, “they’ll dump seed everywhere!” These days, I still pull dandelions from our small garden in the spring. But I don’t discard them anymore – every part gets used. The roots, bitter and sour, get finely chopped and roasted in a cast iron pan until they set loose an enticing, nutty aroma. After they cool, they’re ready to mix with coffee in the French press (recipe below.) The greens, juicy and salty, go right into a big salad. And we make fritters from any early flowers we find. If you’re gathering dandelion, either from your garden or on a foraging trip,

Surprising Recycling Mistakes Most People Make Daily

In the U.S., nearly 260 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW) are generated annually. Nearly 90 million tons of this MSW are recycled or composted, for a recycling rate of close to 35 percent.1 It's a good start, but there's clearly room for improvement, especially because many of the items Americans throw in their recycling bins are not actually recyclable. Many people toss questionable items in their bins hoping to give them a shot at being recycled, but the reality is that certain non-recyclable items will only be tossed into the trash bin at the recycling center. Worse, some of the items may end up contaminating entire loads of recyclables that would otherwise have gone on to other

Spring Ayurveda Cleanse

It's that time of year - time to get rid of the winter blues and wet, cool weather of Spring. In Ayurveda, we cleanse twice a year, a gentle cleanse in the Autumn prepping the body for winter (Vata time of year), and in the Spring prepping the body for summer (Pitta time of year). This month we will learn how to get the body and mind ready for summer through the ancient practice of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and is one of the oldest forms of natural healing, designed to bring the body back into balance. This month we will focus on foods, yoga poses/breaths, self-care, and other means of cleansing the Ayurvedic way. Set yourself up for a healthier summer, balance digesti

Ayurveda Spring Cleanse: Pre-Cleanse

In Ayurveda, when major seasonal and elemental changes occur (Spring and Autumn), a cleanse is performed to help the body ease into the new season. During this time, food is simplified, a self-care practice is added, and spices and foods reflect the seasonal change. As we enter spring, we have moved from Vata time of year (Winter; dry/cold) to Kapha time of year (Wet/Cold). We now prepare the body for Pitta time of year (Hot). A spring cleanse is generally 7 days, a longer period of time than a fall cleanse. Why? Because over the course of the winter and spring, we have accumulated ama (toxin build up) and with the heat increasing, those toxins make their way to the surface. The goal of the

Journey to Africa: The Tastes of Tanzania

Like many people part of a growing trend, I usually value life experiences above material possessions. I appreciate new experiences with delicious, or sometimes strange, food, which tends to be my preferred form of life experience. Nothing can be more exciting in my opinion than combining new foods with travelling to new places and interacting with new cultures. Talking to local cooks and bringing once foreign recipes home is by far my favorite part of encountering new places and cultures. Recently, I was approached by a friend and fellow outdoors enthusiast with an opportunity to travel to Tanzania and do a Mt. Kilimanjaro trek. I gladly accepted and started training immediately. More than

A Taste of Tanzania: Mchicha

After having recently spent time in Tanzania climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, William brings back with him several recipes he discovered on his travels. Today, we are happy to share with you Mchicha! Mchicha is a traditional dish in Tanzania made with spinach, coconut milk, and peanuts. Mchicha is available today on our Hot Bar. Look for it in our Deli's To Go case this month. Tanzania is an East African country, home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Tanzania is known for it's vast wilderness and infamous Serengeti National Park, home to elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, and rhino. About 90 percent of Tanzanians live in t

GIY Housecleaning Wipes

When my kids were super young, every day was made up of a million tiny tasks, none of which I could ever remember when anyone asked that simple but awful question, “What did you do today?” “Uh, well, I kept everyone alive?” No small task, some days. Any little scrap of a timesaver was life blood. I am convinced that whomever invented housecleaning wipes was a mother, or at least lived with one. The likelihood that I can find both a cloth and the correct cleaner at the same moment that they’re actually needed is very, very low. And by the time I have laid my hands on both, the initial mess has probably exploded. All that to say, having the cloth and cleaner in the same container is such a
