Harvest New Year!

Posted on: January 9th, 2017

Hello Harvest Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and this new year is treating you well. We are grateful for your support this season and look forward to seeing more of you in the coming year!

We’re digging right in on our resolutions to stay fit and healthy (this girl still has some baby weight to drop) and we’re working with one of our favorite people to get us on the right track and help us create some healthy habits for 2017. We always love Becky Schmooke over at Becky’s Mindful Kitchen, but we are especially loving her February class offering, “Unprocess your life.”

This class is designed to teach participants how to shop, cook and eat healthier with REAL and local ingredients. How perfect is that for keeping your New Years’ resolutions? I can personally attest that any class with Becky is a ton of fun, but I’m super excited to get to this one and soak up all her tips.

I often find myself reaching out to Becky when I am in a cooking pinch and needing an idea as to how to use some of our more unique balsamic vinegars (I’m talking to you Lavender and Cinnamon Pear!). She is always kind, patient and above all…brilliantly creative! And her advice never fails…turns out a Cinnamon Pear Balsamic reduction IS a delicious glaze for a ham.

One of the things I admire about her devotion to her profession is her ability to adapt and work with all types of dietary restrictions and food allergies. I randomly contacted her wondering if a class could be tailored for a friend of mine who follows a keytogenic diet to help control her epileptic seizures. Not only could she work with it, she directed me to several resources for such a lifestyle. Awesome!

I urge you to check out her website and her array of class offerings. If you don’t see anything that trips your trigger, give her a call or shoot her an email. I’m confident she will work with you to create a class that you will love.

In the meantime, consider joining me (and my mom! Yay!) at the Unprocess Your Life Cooking Class on Sunday, February 5th from 1-3pm. Come hungry and bring containers as there are always plenty of yummy leftovers for the taking –Austin can attest to that one.

See you soon!
