Hands-down, this brilliant purply-pink sauerkraut is my all-time FAVORITE! Just look at that GORGEOUS color... and yes, after the lacto-fermentation process it really does turn this beautiful shade of magenta. It never would have occurred to me to ferment red cabbage if I had not tasted some at the farmer's market in Kennebunk, ME last fall.

As with grocery stores, one should never go to the farmer's market HUNGRY! I swear, I...

We're officially entering the deep part of winter when cold winds can literally take your breath away. I start to gravitate towards warming, rich, flavorful dishes that keep me well-nourished but not feeling weighted down or sluggish. The creative combination of ingredients in this Cauliflower, Mushroom and Walnut Meatless 'Bolognese' truly hits the spot!

I struggled a bit with what to name this dish. Traditional Bolognese ori...

Fresh ginger + fresh lime + yellow and white carrot spirals + salt + time = LOVE! If you've been gifted a zoodle maker over the holidays and are curious about makin' your own lacto-fermented vegetables, I'm thrilled you stopped by! I've got the perfect combination to get you started. 

Ginger added to any citrus is spectacular in my book. It seems to lend itself particular well to fermented foods and beverages. After some diggi...

Three things I love about growing food, being a personal plant-based chef, AND a nutrition sleuth:

• determining which plants contain the biggest nutrient bang for your buck

• creating simple ways for YOU to learn how to make these plants tasty too

• growing these varieties so I can perpetuate this cycle

I get a little giddy when one of my all-stars makes the 2019 Superfoods list. I'll admit I usually cringe a bit or at least rol...

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!

 Views from my lens.
