Andrea Catherine is here from the Fearless Self-Love Podcast.
I’m gonna talk about 3 things
and what’s going on for me and my body has this desire to cleanse, but it’s just not the right time because it’s holidays!
It’s frustrating every time I eat sugar my body’s like no and alcohol and I do it because it’s the holiday season!
talking about that and how to manage that
lots of squash
everything I can with acorn squash
very simple slice the acorn squash in half
bake it to make it super soft
made this filling basically
It was just a really hearty meal served in the squash half
really creative way to at the end of the CSA what do I do with it.
I wanted to share that
using a lot of cookbooks
my friend Lindsay-Jean’s, I interviewed her on the podcast her book is all about food waste recipes
I reached out to Mollie Katzen from the Moosewood
Those are my favorite cookbooks! I do, what I made out of the Moosewood yesterday was this recipe for Chilean Squash that has peppers and corn and cheese and eggs and lots and lots of pumpkin!
The other thing I get out of the Enchanted Broccoli Forest Cookbook is her quiche crust, I use that for quiche or pie or anything.
I don’t do well with doubling recipes, I can double the playdough recipe, but I have to constantly make double batches.
I found an old copy of her book at a garage sale or thrift store.That’s what I was looking at this fall.
Using it as inspiration because I have been more attracted to following a recipe I think it is maybe because I think this season of such intense change that I’m
simplicity of being able to follow something, instead of everything being self-generated all of the time! It takes a lot of energy! I have up-teem business ideas!
I love being creative!
I start things and love doing things!
I think that’s why I’ve been cookbooks
When’s your birthday?
October 26 just turned 34 about a month and a half ago! When’s your birthday Jackie?
I’m 1000% Leo, I was born in the middle of the summer of love on July 31, 1967 in the middle of NYC.
for folks who do
being really focused
life just constantly changing
Less of the Roller Coaster Feel
a lot of intention
tune into the channel of life
Andrea Catherine is here to give us a little self-love!
Were both looking out over a little bit of snow!
I’l start with the seasons
shared a little bit
settling and reducing stimuli
having a lot of change, moving, illness, my family visited, started a new job in August
A lot of really good things! Requiring a lot of energy. I’ve been subconsiously finding ways to just be without as much input
enjoy what is already here
What that meant for me is it meant:
Sundays become my new work for myself day
do my thing
There’s a lot of sugar out there!
Adds for the season and all the marketing that is up.
We aren’t just what we eat but what we digest!
our body goes into the sympathetic nervous system kicks in and we can go into that fight or flight survival mode. When we do that our digestive system shuts down! It’s not insignificant and I’ve been trying to do this at work.
I’ve been trying to figure out
those 3.5 hours I am fully engaged
I need to be fully nourished by the time I go in and I need to be calm by the time I need to eat again. I’ve been trying to figure out:
how to navigate my day
check in with them
still digesting that experience when I get home
Shift to a big meal around 1-2 pm and then maybe just some soup when I get home.
That represents a shift for me
noticing being aware
I feel like that’s important to share as this can be a season of over stimulus!
and our body’s are gonna feel it!
I know and Mike has been baking his best Christmas cookies! And when they come out of the oven who can resist them!
The best thing he has been making lately are these yummy french fry home grown potato fans!
We’ve been doing a lot of potatoes too!
I think it’s root vegetable time of year!
We went to a potluck the other day and we brought sweet potato fries
oven runs from 100-125 º on hot
some kind of scale
turn it down to 400º turn to 300º
Burnt our first batch then we made a second with this chipotle sauce delicious!
The smaller squashes when you slice them open, they have like a semi-circle, a whole
use it like that so you can slice it open
sautéing all the other things you need to use up! Vegetables
I marinated some chick peas and soy sauce and made this delicious filling for the squash!
Part of my garden course I was telling you about and lesson 12 is about cooking and I call my cookbook the Tri-color Cookbook
so beautiful the ones I made with acorn and butternut squash
tan and deep red and green and orange of the squash! It was beautiful looks like a festive meal!
bringing the colors together! That’s the kind of stimulus we want!
stimulate your eyes with what your making
be more tactile
full experience of sound and touch
We’re sucked into this two dimensional thing on a screen.
I saw these really cool scented gift bags when I was looking for a Christmas gift idea I liked that had an orange, some cranberries and like some cinnamon sticks or cloves. It’s seems kind of calming to give someone the scent of Christmas!
adding those spices
that aroma it’s like being by a fire. If you don’t have a fire mulling some spices or wine!
interesting time of the year
Another thing I didn’t mention that I’m excited to do is my friend
farmer friend Brooke Bohannon
mills her own flour
homemade pasta making recipes
Mike was telling me he was gonna have left over egg yolks today because he made macaroons so he makes awesome noodles. His raviolis are to die for! The other day he made corn tortillas!
have a lot of corn flour
I ended up with some blue and yellow flower and mixing some of them together
this is going to look really interesting not a pretty color
exciting to have all of these resources
At this time of year it’s easy to say
The CSA is over and all the organic food is coming out of state! Unless you live somewhere where you can grow food all year round.
store some food
who is selling food year round
here in the flathead valley Brooke has a second business called
partner with farmers in the valley
things available throughout the winter you can get
just bitter greens and squash
Through the winter it will be mostly apples
So figuring out can I do some of those things
up levels my gratitude and what’s gonna time in the New Year
Can be a time to explore things in other places
I like this time of the year because of that!
It’s still changing even though the garden isn’t giving us all of these things we can go out and pick!
Actually I can still pick kale, it’s still out there, it’s frozen, but I can pick it through the snow, these giant plants still standing but they are a little more chewy.
So we’ve been into Mike’s canned goods, green beans, and pickled beets. Our health food store has been having fresh good that say organically grown locally grown, it’s in a bucket and says locally grown.
dry mobile season
if there ever was a time to eat gluten and sweet would be this season!
My encouragement and challenge is all things sweet and nourishing don’t have to come from processed sugar and flour and to experiment
satisfying that sweet tooth with some of those things we were talking about
that squash recipe we were talking about will meet that sweet flavor ~ not sugar
It will meet that need desire taste for sweet
They’re gonna pop that spot on the tongue
craving for sweet that we have this year is natural we don’t have to punish ourselves for craven sweetness
Try to make the glutenous and sweetness more natural ingredients
Can be a fun challenge
I was telling you about the Amy Porterfield Online Classes and she was recommending this podcast called Lose 100 pounds. The main theory the woman talks about is, is planning your day, and what you’re gonna eat, if you are going to eat sweets, admit it but say I am going to eat one cookie or whatever you’re going to eat for 24 hours.
Food Babe 7 Day Detox
It’s tough for me because planning is not one of my strengths. The other things is the food babe has this 7 day sugar craving detox and I know the only way I can survive that is by eating sweet potatoes etc.
