deeper look into a superfood pantry!

Posted by Bree Marsh on Thursday, February 25, 2010,
so after a friend and client of ours watched my pantry and fridge video, she printed out and brought in an anti-cancer shopping list for me that she saw on Dr. Oz.  many of the same foods that are in our pantry are on that list!  a few more to mention that i forgot to show you in the video are flaxseeds, which are in my freezer...you should by whole flaxseeds and grind them yourself as needed to add to baked goods or top hot cereals, and store the remainder in the freezer, also lots of great ...

how sweet it is...

Posted by Bree Marsh on Wednesday, February 24, 2010,
turn garlic into a sweet treat by roasting.  last night, we had salmon with roasted garlic flatbread.  ry gave the salmon a 4 and the flatbread a 4.5!  roasting garlic is super simple.  pre-heat oven to 375, cut an entire head of garlic (unpeeled!) in half cross-wise, so you have a top and bottom half, place both halves, cut-side up, on a big piece of foil and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, then wrap up the foil around the garlic to make an air-tight package.  put in the oven ...

here is a up close and personal tour of our pantry and fridge.....i thought i could keep it under 10 minutes, so i could post it on youtube, but that didn't happen, so it is on facebook.  enjoy...and i hope it encourages you to start making-over your pantry!   last night i made what i like to call sweet and spicy turkey stew...it was hearty and yummy, ry gave it a 3.5 (out of 5).  i will post the recipe later.  kinda of a lot of ingredients, BUT you don't have to use everything AND it is all ...

yep, it is garlic baby.  Pungent, flavorful, versatile, and super!  garlic is one of the easiest ways to bring your meals to a higher standard, and you can utilize it in so many things....soups, pastas, dips and spreads(hummus and pesto), roasted veggies, fish, meat, and poultry, baked egg dishes, and the list goes on and on!  you can saute it, roast it, eat it raw.  it has so many beneficial properties...contains allicin, which is an antifungal, as well as allium compounds, which are phytoch...

Posted by Bree Marsh on Friday, February 19, 2010,
last weekend i completed my 2nd 1/2 marathon.  i did my first one on Thanksgiving day in 2008.  this time i was 18 minutes faster!!!  pretty nice PR!  it was definitely a challenge.  i think some may think that it comes easy for me, but no no no, it is tough!   only recently having i started considering myself "a runner".  before when people asked me, i would say, "no, i'm just starting out, we'll see where it goes", but now...it is official!  like it said on a shirt i saw at the expo..."runn...

Brussels are in da bag!

Posted by Bree Marsh on Monday, February 8, 2010,
so i wrapped up Brussels spouts last friday...we had ranch venison burgers with sweet potato fries and broiled brown sugar Brussels....ryan gave the meal a 4.  i boiled the halved sprouts in vegetable stock again until just fork tender, then i drained them, put them on a sheet pan and sprinkled them with just a little dark brown sugar, then i put them under the broiler for only 2-3 minutes, to give them a nice caramelization!  they were tender inside, with a nice sticky, slightly crisp outsid...

Brussels, you gotta learn to love um!!!!

Posted by Bree Marsh on Thursday, February 4, 2010,
so, i know a lot of you out there probably don't care for Brussels sprouts much OR just haven't given them a chance!  they do have some bitter notes and seem to be a little tricky to prepare correctly.  this week, i have found two great ways to enjoy them so far.  tuesday night, i cut off the ends, cut them in half, washed them, then boiled them in vegetable stock (chicken stock works just as well) for about 10-12 minutes.  then i took them out of the pot and left the stock in, added a little...
