Chia Seed Pudding

by KalaLea on September 13, 2014 • Posted in News

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, I participated in GrowNYC’s Fresh Food Box Program by offering a cooking demo while serving chia seed pudding with stewed apples and plums. Although the weather was grey, we had a great day. It’s an awesome program that unlike Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), you do not need to commit for an entire season. You can order on a weekly basis. The cost of one box is $10.00 and organic eggs are

Buckwheat is protein and Vitamin B rich, effective for treating diarrhea, it cleans and strengthens the intestines, reduces cholesterol and blood pressure, strengthens the capillaries and blood vessels, plus is great in treating poor circulation. Rutin, a bioflavonoid found in buckwheat is the healing culprit. Rutin is also an antidote against x-rays and other forms of radiation.

NOTE: Buckwheat is not actually a cereal grain but a fruit seed related to rhubarb and sorrel.

How many times have you stored left over veggies in your fridge from last night’s dinner yet never got around to eating them?

Weeks ago, I discarded nearly $15 in old produce and I’m not doing that anymore. In an effort to waste less food and money plus get my super nutrients at the start of the day,  I ‘m eating leftover veggies for breakfast. This morning, I re-heated a bit of broccoli & beets in

What a wonderful Wednesday! Last night after shooting the next recipe, we photographed today’s breakfast:

– 5 slices of Raclette cheese

a healthier breakfast

by KalaLea on February 16, 2011 • Posted in News

It’s taken me many years to figure out breakfast. Years ago, I ate boxed cereal, donuts, or toast with sugar and cinnamon. Primarily because it was quick but I now realized I simply didn’t know anything else existed.

You: Really KalaLea?
Me: If I’m lying, I’m frying.

Every one around me ate the same unless we were having pancakes, bacon and eggs.

This morning I ate granola with yogurt from Erivan Dairy, blackberries,

Redwood Hill Farm Yogurt

by KalaLea on January 23, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

Two to three times per week, I eat either blueberry or strawberry goat’s milk yogurt with fresh fruit and granola for breakfast. For now, my favorite brand is by Redwood Hill Farm. Last year, I could only find these products at my local coop or Whole Foods but now they sell them at the corner store (bodega) too. This makes me happy! I recently took a liking to yogurt in an effort to cut down
