spicy sesame shiitake + wild garlic pickles

spicy sesame shiitake + wild garlic pickles

Admittedly, it’s been more than once already that I’ve been caught standing at the fridge with the door wide open, eating these pickled mushrooms straight out of the jar. They will most likely not last very long. But that’s ok…because they’re so quick + easy […]

superfood cookies | 2 ways

superfood cookies | 2 ways

Craving sweet?
Take your pick from two of our favorite cookies, dreamed up by our very own nurse Falecia and friend Mo 

These cookies are simple, quick and chock-full of beneficial ingredients – each cookie featuring an edible powerhouse: #pumpkinseeds  +  #rawcocoanibs

 

A lover of pumpkin seeds, Dr. Kristann wrote a little piece in their praise:

“Falecia recently brought in some tasty delights rich in pumpkin seeds (don’t fret, her recipe follows!), and they only served to heighten my enthusiasm for these little seeds that pack such a nutritional
mega-punch.

Go Pumpkin Seeds!

You say pumpkin seed, I say ZINC.
You say pumpkin seed, I say MAGNESIUM.
You say it again, I say ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS and PHYTOSTEROLS!
And then maybe you say. . .big deal!. . .but wait, it is a big deal!

Magnesium is a super-important nutrient that supports normalized blood pressure, heart health and regular digestion; and it is critical to regulation of muscle spasms.  Zinc is a nutrient used for all sorts of cellular processes to make energy (and we all could use some of that!).  Zinc also is very important for prostate health — where zinc is the most concentrated in the entire body.  The  pumpkin extracts and oils within the seeds also significantly improve prostate conditions such as enlarged prostate.

Pumpkin seeds are a wonderful way to get plant-based Omega 3 fats that are critical to our cholesterol balance, brain health and regulation of inflammatory pathways.  The phytosterols found in pumpkin seeds help balance female hormones and play a helpful role during a women’s monthly cycle as well as during peri-menopausal & menopausal times.

All this, in one little seed?

YES please!  Pass ME another cookie!

 Kristann

Dr. Kristann’s Nutrient Dense Molasses Cake

Dr. Kristann’s Nutrient Dense Molasses Cake

a Red Hill recipe

 Skip the bad-for-you, keep the delicious 

ingredients

16 oz almond butter

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/3 c. molasses

2 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground clove

mix

Put everything in your Cuisinart and blend until smooth.
You can also mix by hand. Scrape into an ungreased
glass pie plate.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 min until tester comes out clean
(better a little bit less baked than a little more).

Cool & serve.

a note from Dr. Kristann

“This is not very sweet which is the way I like it. However, you could add an additional amount of maple syrup, honey or mashed dates to increase the sweetness. My recommendation is that the total amount of sweetener should not exceed ½ cup at the most. Remember that you can always increase the sweetness by adding sweetened whipped cream or yogurt sweetened with vanilla, honey and cinnamon.”

Do you dry brush?

Do you dry brush?

Hello Red Hill Medical Friends! 
Do you dry brush?
Here’s why we think you should give it a try…

Dry brushing is an ultra-simple method of Self Care that sets the natural healing pathways in the body in motion (namely, the lymphatic system). Stimulation of the skin is one of the optimal ways to access and encourage the endocrine system and all of its glands very quickly.

It is very normal to feel an instant improvement of overall well-being when dry brushing…best to practice this technique in the morning, as the resulting feeling is indeed an invigorating one!

Benefits of dry brushing…

Stimulates blood and lymph flow
Helps eliminate toxins from the body
Removes dead skin cells
Encourages cells to regenerate
Stimulates production of sebum
Helps combat #cellulite

How, you ask? To start, all you need is a body brush with natural bristles. (If this is too rough feeling on your skin, a softer-bristled brush or a flannel will do the job just fine!) Dry brushing is done…well, this may seem obvious…on dry skin. A convenient time to do it is before or after your shower, especially if you shower in the morning. Because of the removal of dead skin cells during the brushing, some prefer to dry brush before they shower.
Start at your feet and work upwards, always moving “towards the heart” or center. Try to keep a steady rhythm going. Brushing of the whole body should take 3-5 minutes. From the feet up to the center, from the hands to the center, from the back to the center, from the chest down to the center… brush more lightly or with a finer-bristled brush for more sensitive areas like the face and neck.

You will soon see the difference after only a few sessions of dry brushing…your skin will have a rosy glow and will be much softer. Add this to your daily routine and reap the benefits of this incredible Self Care, inside and out!
