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.

Beets & Broccoli for Breakfast

by KalaLea on March 30, 2011 • Posted in News

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
