Raw Vegan Spaghetti with "Alfredo" Cream Sauce

Kulae, 07/29/2015

RAW VEGAN SPAGHETTI WITH "ALFREDO" CREAM SAUCE

My new favorite kitchen gadget is my spiralizer.  If you don't have one, or don't know what one is, it's a nifty contraption that makes pasta-like ribbons out of harder fruits and veggies.  Some ideas for fruits or veggies you could use with a spiralizer are zucchini, carrots, beets, apples, etc...  Last night, I decided to make not only a vegan, but raw veggie pasta, topped with a delicious "Alfredo" sauce that I made out of cashews and nutritional yeast.  I fed it to my italian boyfriend, who was, to his surprise, impressed!  I, myself, thought it was delicious!  I love this recipe because you get to use fresh, local and seasonal ingredients (for the most part), and it's completely raw, so you are accessing the most amount of vitamins and nutrients out of the veggies.  You also get a ton of protein, between the cashew cream sauce and the spinach.  On top of that, you get a healthy dose of vitamin B12 from the nutritional yeast.  Most vegans and vegetarians are low in this essential vitamin.  A deficiency in B12 can lead to anemia, depression Alzheimer's disease, infertility, sleep issues, asthma, allergies, and IBS.  This recipe is also gluten and sugar free!

Renee's Buddha Bowl

Kulae, 07/22/2015

RENEE'S BUDDHA BOWL

This week I thought I would share with you my version of a Buddha bowl.  What IS a Buddha bowl?  Simply put, a Buddha bowl is a meal-sized bowl filled with simple pure food and enjoyed with deep gratitude.  I like to use a large sized bowl, one with which I have become accustomed to associating as a symbol of gratitude and nourishment.  You can really use any combination of fresh raw and steamed veggies.  Some of my favorites include kale, spinach and arugula.  Combining flavor and texture, i.e. sweet, crunchy, soft, bitter, can be a fun, creative and relaxing process.  Next, add some carbs like cooked brown rice or quinoa and some sort of protein.  In this recipe, I used a fried egg as my protein source, but you could use tofu, tempeh, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, or even an animal protein, such as chicken or beef.  I know for me, the first few times I make a dish, it's nice to follow a recipe, so here is my version of a nourishing, healthy and clean Buddha bowl.

Hibiscus Pomegranate Cooler

Kulae, 07/15/2015

HIBISCUS POMEGRANATE COOLER

Every year for the past 10 years or so, I have invited my mother over for Mother's day for a nutritious, healthy, home-cooked meal.  It is my way of thanking her for all of the love and nurturing she has given me over the years.  This year was no exception.  I am always conscious of not only my own dietary restrictions and needs, but my mother's as well.  This recipe for a wonderfully refreshing Hibiscus Pomegranate Cooler fits the bill.  It is gluten, dairy, alcohol, and added sugar free.  It is not only refreshing, but loaded with antioxidants as well.  As an added bonus, the Hibiscus tea is not only energetically cooling (great for the hot day we had yesterday!), but it has been shown to help in the reduction of cholesterol!

Strawberry Fennel and Baby Arugula Salad

Kulae, 07/08/2015

Strawberry Fennel and Baby Arugula Salad

I am a big fan of changing my eating habits along with the seasons.  This is a good habit to develop for a few different reasons.  For me, it helps to keep me out of a food rut.  You know what I mean by that.  When you find yourself rotating between the same three dishes?  This can cause boredom, which can lead to binging.  It can also lead to food sensitivities.  If you over expose yourself to really anything, you can develop a sensitivity to it.  That can be food, body products, chemicals, etc..  Another reason to eat seasonally is because if you are eating with the seasons, you are probably eating locally sourced food, which means you are getting the food into your body sooner after picking, then if it was shipped clear across the country to get to you.  This means a higher rate of access to vitamins and minerals.  You are also supporting local farmers, and helping to reduce environmental pollution by not contributing to the fossil fuels that it takes to get your exotic food to your local grocery store.  But most importantly, local, seasonal food just tastes better!

Below is a simple, yet refreshing salad that I found in the book, The Longevity Kitchen Cookbook by Rebecca Katz.  It has 3 main ingredients, 6 ingredients total, including the salad dressing - which is delicious as a marinade, and is super easy to make.   A few health bonuses to this salad's ingredients include anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties to the strawberries, the fennel helps aid in digestion and arugula is high in calcium, vitamins A, C and K, and is also a good source of iron.

Dandelion Greens and a Juice Recipe

Kulae, 07/01/2015

Dandelion Greens and A Juice Recipe

Summer is in the air!  It gives me a little bounce in my step and lightness in my body to breathe the fresh air.  To smell the life and new growth.  Summer is a great time to re-evaluate what you are eating.  As we leave the colder winter months behind us, so should we step away from the heavier, more warming, comforting foods.  This is the time to re-introduce fresh greens into your diet.

By now, we have all heard about how good kale is for you.  This is true, but I wanted to bring some attention to a green that many of us know, but probably find annoying when they pop up in your grass.  Dandelion greens.  These guys are on the bitter and some what peppery side of the flavor profile.  This means they are great for digestion.  They help the liver stimulate bile, which aids in digestion and helps your body in the removal of toxins.  Below is a list of the some of the health benefits of eating dandelion greens.

The Many Uses of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

Kulae, 06/22/2015

THE MANY USES OF RAW APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

As I was thinking about what to write about this week, it occurred to me that the many different uses of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar have come up a bunch with colleagues and clients lately.  If you are not familiar with the stuff, it is made by exposing crushed apples to yeast and letting the apples ferment.  This turns the apple/yeast mixture into alcohol.  The second step in making apple cider vinegar is to then expose the apple alcohol to bacteria, which further ferments the alcohol and turns it into acetic acid... the main active compound in apple cider vinegar.  Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (like Bragg's) also contains "mother," strands of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria that give the vinegar a murky, cob web-like appearance.  This is the good stuff.  It is the "mother" in the vinegar, that I believe, enables it to have so many healthy benefits.

Recipe of the Week: Salmon en Papillote with Arugula Pesto

Kulae, 06/15/2015

Recipe of the Week: Salmon en Papillote with Arugula Pesto

I came across this recipe in the 2015 issue of Nourish and Heal Magazine.  For those of you that are unfamiliar with what "en Papillote" means, it is French for "in paper".  In the culinary arts, the term refers to a moist heat cooking method where the food is enclosed in a packet of parchment paper or foil and then cooked in the oven.  When cooking en papillote, there are usually some vegetables, herbs and seasonings included in the packet along with the main item. These additional ingredients, along with the main item, give off steam, which is what actually cooks the food. Therefore, en papillote cooking is basically a technique for cooking with stream, which is an extremely healthy way to cook your food.  Because salmon is delicate and cooks quickly, it is a good choice for cooking this way.

Tips by Gwen: Yoga for Baseball

Kulae, 05/07/2015

  1.  Pigeon pose:  from batting to quick sprints down to first it is always important for baseball players to keep their hips open, to increase speed and agility, torque at the plate and lessen the potential strain on the knees.  Pigeon pose will open deeply in to the glutes and release any pressure that could accumulate on the sciatic nerve.

Recipe of the Week: Baked Zucchini Sticks

Kulae, 04/29/2015


Here is a fun, fast, delicious and different way to cook zucchini.  This recipe shows how you can take the healthiest of vegetables, and make it into a comfort food.  These are best hot, right out of the oven.  Serve these as a healthy snack, or as a side dish.  They take less then 30 minutes to make, and as usual are gluten, dairy and sugar free.  These guys are vegan as well.  Not only are these low calorie and satiating, they are high in anti-inflammatory Omega 3's, due to the walnuts and a vegetarian source of vitamin B-12, due to the addition of nutritional yeast.

Spring into Yoga Style

Kulae, 04/27/2015

As we're gearing up for the warmer months ahead, there are a few things on our mind: cleaning our homes, refining our closet, donating things we don't use and kicking up our workout routines a notch.  The ladies in the Kulae office have agreed to a correlation between having cute workout outfits and an increased frequency of working out.  Even if it just means picking up a new sports bra in a bright color or a great hoodie to wear to and fro, we've found that a little refresh in our workout gear makes us that much more excited to get to that yoga session or pilates reformer class.

Six Tips for Establishing a Morning Yoga Routine

Kulae, 03/30/2015


We get it.  Mornings are tough.  And let's not even get started on Monday mornings, where getting up before 8am is reminiscent of the scene in the Ring with the girl crawling out of the well.  As difficult as is seems when the alarm goes off, establishing a morning yoga routine is an invigorating way to get your day started.  Not only will you be in a better mood, you will be more likely to make mindful, healthy choices during the day.  If things come up during the day (ahem happy hour with your coworkers), you can go guilt free since you already got your practice out of the way.  

If you're not naturally a morning person, however, actually getting up when the alarm calls can prove daunting.  Here are some tips to keep you from hitting the snooze button for your 6am flow class:
