      Sushi is a relatively easy meal that can accommodate the vegan or omnivore alike.

      The first step is preparing the rice.  Generally you want to use a "sushi" grade rice than can be purchased at any Asian

      store.  Soak 2 cups of rice in water for about 30 minutes.

      Then cook the rice according to the directions. While the rice is cooking you'll prepare the sushi "syrup".


      1/2 cup rice vinegar

      2 tsp of salt

      1/4 cup of sugar


      Bring this to a boil and add a 4 inch piece of kombu (dried seaweed). Take off the heat and allow the syrup to cool.

      When the rice has cooked and cooled completely mix in the cooled syrup.  Now the rice is ready. (As a side note, I have made

      this with brown rice. For the syrup substitute brown rice vinegar, and use brown rice syrup instead of sugar).


      Chop up whatever ingredients you want in your sushi. Place your Nori sheet on a sushi mat and spread with rice.



      The actual rolling of the sushi takes a little practice.   There are some great step-by-step instructions on

      YouTube about how to roll your sushi.  You'll want to make sure you have a very sharp knife.




      There are lots of vegetarian ingredients that taste great in sushi including broiled portabella mushrooms, steamed

      asparagus, tofu, cucumber, avocado, carrots, sprouts....the list goes on and on.  It's actually pretty fun to experiment.

      Dip in soy sauce mixed with wasabi and enjoy!

    • For starters, HERE are some great reasons to get your greens.

      I have recently made it a goal to try and eat leafy greens EVERYDAY.  One way to do this was to incorporate it

      into my favorite meal of the day: BREAKFAST.

      You'd be surprised at how easy and DELICIOUS it was.

      Here is an example of a fabulous, guilt-free breakfast, loaded with nutrients.


      1 leftover baked potato, chopped

      1 small bunch of kale (centers removed), chopped




      Spray a pan with non-stick spray and add the potato.  Cook it for 6-8 minutes stirring

      occasionally.  This step is just to crisp up the potatoes.



      Then add the chopped kale to the pan and cover.


      Let simmer for 3-4 minutes, just until the kale has softened and turned to a bright

      beautiful green color.


      Add about 1 TBS of balsamic vinegar to the pan, as well as salt and pepper (to taste).

      Top with fresh chopped tomatoes and avocados.  What a great way to start the day!
