Nutrition Tip

Get out of your box – try something you’ve never had before. How about a new veggie from the farmer’s market? Or, how about eating a vegetarian meal one a week for a month? Or, think of your own new experience.

Featured Recipe

Market Salad Serves 4

- this is a great one to make after a visit to the a farmer market




  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 / 4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 6 ounces red new potatoes, well-scrubbed and cut into 1 / 2-inch chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 small zucchini (about 6 ounces), thinly sliced lengthwise, then cut lengthwise into very thin strips, and then halved crosswise
  • 1 small head of fennel (about 8 ounces), tops removed, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 ounces radishes (about 4), ends trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 / 2 cup flat leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and dried


  1. For the vinaigrette, combine the lemon zest and juice in a large bowl. Slowly add oil in a steady stream until incorporated; season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Place potatoes and garlic in a small pot of cold salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to low, and simmer until potatoes are cooked through, but not falling apart, about 7 minutes. Drain well and add to the bowl with the vinaigrette. Toss well; cool to room temperature.
  3. Add zucchini, fennel, radishes, scallions, parsley, and capers to bowl; toss well and serve immediately.

Featured Article

A trip to the Farmer’s Market Near You by Brenda Jaeck


We’re approaching that time of year when it is a GREAT idea to frequent your local farmer’s market. Why? Just some of the reasons are summarized below:



Fresh produce – what better place to find a plethora of fresh veggies – perhaps you’ll even find one you have not tried or cooked previously.


Know where your food comes from – straight from the source – what could be better than that? Also to eat food that has not traveled across the globe is a good goal – it’s fresher and it uses a lot resources.


An adventure – it’s an event to go to a farmer market. You never know who you’ll meet or what you’ll get to experience.


Outside fresh air – what a better way to connect with nature and the food you eat than at an outside venue. You’ll breathe fresh air and take in a few rays instead of breathing recycled air and experiencng fluorescent lighting.


Support local farmers – independent farmers are becoming few and far between – what better way to show your support than to come out and chat with them and buy their wares.


Promote community where you live – you’ll interact with people of all types that live in your community. Perhaps you’ll even meet your neighbors that you don’t know.


Getting out to a farmer market is a great experience in and of itself – AND you leave with a bunch of yummy (and healthy) produce.

Get to Balance –How will you bring more balance to your life? How about a healthier, more balanced life plan?

Are your health concerns impeding you from living life fully? Do you want to change your relationship with food from the inside out? Are you seeking deep seeded balance and wellness?


I would eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with you on a personal level. We can work together privately to create a customized life-long plan for you AND create the steps to incorporate those changes into your existing routines.


Through my counseling services I can help you create and maintain balance in your life by using nutrition as a focus and a tool.  To do this I look at your entire lifestyle to achieve maximum health.  This is accomplished through education and private consultations where an individualized program is developed for you.  These consultations include evaluating your current diet and overall lifestyle and then making easily implemented, gradual changes.  Additionally, you’ll receive outside information in the form of articles, books, tapes and recipes.  Also included are additional monthly forms of education and participation -- activities like cooking coaching, health food store shopping hints, light exercising functions and other activities. My practice is telephone based, allowing for maximum flexibility and ease.


There is also an email version of my program now available.

Looking for a speaker?

One of my greatest joys is speaking to groups. It is always a dynamic exchange and we all come away enriched. Would your company or group benefit from an entertaining, motivating speaker on how to get healthier? If so, please let me know the name and contact information of your program coordinator so that I may send them an informational packet. I would love the opportunity to serve your favorite group.
