soup, apothicary, fish oil, tumeric, workshops, yoga

Brrrrrr!!! 5-10 inches of snow in Seattle!! It's so beautiful and I'm very grateful that I have warm snow boots and run out and play in it!

Some of you might be feeling more intense joint pain this year because it's colder and dryer humidity.
My friend and herbalist, Karyn Schwartz, who owns new Capital Hill apothicary, suggests adding more fish oil and Tumeric to your diet. If you like supliments, like I do, she has a whole array to choose from at reasonable prices. Also, rubbing Magnesium gel topically on the joints helps as does a warming sesame oil after a hot hot shower. This is a great time of year to eat soup to stay toasty from the inside out.
I just made a "chicken broth, Tortillia Soup"
So easy, and child can do it:

(you can make your own Chicken stock from slow boiling bones which is the best for relieving joint pain with natural ingredients)
or 1 box of TJ's chicken broth
1 can organic black beans
1/2 cup sauted onions/garlic
1/2 green pepper well diced
1/2 cup salsa of your choice
s & p to taste

Pre Heat oven 350%
cut a package of TJ's tortillia 's in thin strips, toss with sea salt and olive oil, bake for 20 min.

Bring Chicken broth to boil. Saute onion's and garlic in olive / coconut oil and add for flavor.
Drain black beans and wash....Add all other ingredients....stir til boiling, then let simmer on low for a few hours.

You can embellish with chopped Cilantro, a dollup of Greek Plain yogurt, more salsa, hard cheese like parm or swiss and either home made tortillia chips or store made...

This is soooo yummy, you 'll be back for seconds!!
