Wheat Berry Salad with Kale and Feta

If I could have three wishes, I would be super tempted to make Mondays off one of them.  I was lucky enough to have two in a row in January and again in February, and I definitely made the most of them. Even though it was unusually chilly (we […]

Kale, Pinto and Mushroom Tacos with Guajillo Salsa

This three day weekend was awesome.  Except for the test I took on Saturday morning, the whole weekend was fun: coffee, walks around town, a great swim, and the ZOO!  We finally took Ellie to the Oakland zoo and she loved it.  Especially the petting area. The squirrel monkeys […]

Marinated Kale and Mushroom Salad

One year ago today, I woke up, made a batch of muffins, and headed in to Labor and Delivery to be induced. Today was slightly less exciting.  I woke up at 4:30, ran 8 miles, and headed in to work. I’ve posted a few raw kale salads before, but this […]

Kale and Red Cabbage Salad

I feel like the “reset button” has been a popular topic on a lot of blogs. You know, that reset you need after too much beer or too much cake or too much sitting on the couch watching the Olympics but not actually doing any physical activity yourself? A […]

Kale and White Bean Pasta

I don’t think I ever ate kale when I was growing up, but I ADORE it now.  Raw in salad or smoothies, cooked with pasta or in soup, it’s great.  Lets not kid ourselves, though.  If given a choice between a plate of kale or a brownie, I’ll probably take […]

Another Raw Kale Salad

My wisdom tooth is out, and honestly the whole procedure and recovery has been WAY more mellow than I was afraid it would be.  I’m not supposed to run until Monday (boooo) but other than that, things are pretty good. I made a raw kale salad (and a couscous-chickpea […]

Kale, Farro, and Tempeh Salad

I will readily admit, I don’t come up with that many original recipes (It’s really something I should work on).  99% of the time I head into the kitchen with the laptop open to a blog, or a cookbook, or a page torn out of a magazine.  But last […]

Mole Enchiladas with Kale and Squash

I hope you had a great Valentines Day! Mine was nice and low-key and perfect. Because I love my students, I bought them some treats. And ate waaaay too many of them myself. (That, on top of the cupcakes a couple of students brought meant I was completely over-sugared […]

Tortellini and Kale Soup

There are a million things to love about San Francisco, but this is one of my favorites: We’re members, and this weekend, we gave Ellie her first science museum experience. Our first stop was the living roof, which is covered with native plants and absorbs 98% of the water […]

I think I have a good schedule worked out that will let me get in all the things I want to do. At least, it’s worked so far this week: 5 AM – wake up, make breakfast, write blog post 6 AM – shower, get ready 6:30 AM – […]
