Recipe of the Month:
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
This favorite Beyond Broccoli recipe is a delicious way to enjoy pumpkin! Pumpkin is an excellent source of the antioxidant beta-carotene (that our body converts to vitamin A as needed), as well as a good source of dietary fiber and several other nutrients including potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamins C and K. All of this for less than 80 calories per cup! Mini muffins make great snacks or a nutritious dessert.
Welcome to Beyond Broccoli™
The ever-changing, often confusing world of nutrition can be tough to navigate in this age of information overload. Beyond Broccoli nutrition counseling combines nutritional science, behavioral change theory, the many lessons learned from clinical practice, as well as a strong belief in the value of whole foods as fuel, medicine, and perhaps most importantly a source of daily pleasure.
At Beyond Broccoli we love food. We also believe food has a major impact on our health and well being. Everyday what we eat and drink affects our energy levels, our moods, our ability to focus and concentrate, how we feel when we exercise, and how we sleep. Beyond Broccoli keeps the emphasis on food to get well, stay well or manage illness. While Beyond Broccoli is not anti-supplement our mission is to educate, counsel, and coach using a “food first” approach.
Beyond Broccoli individual nutrition consults also recognize that behavior change is at the core of successful nutrition counseling and coaching. We know that even simple change is not always easy and we must go beyond merely providing information to help you improve your nutrition. At Beyond Broccoli it is all about you. The plan we come up with, together, is based on your nutrition and health needs including the skills and tools you need to make changes. We also know that even small changes can be significant and are the ones you are most likely to sustain for a lifetime.
The teaching philosophy at Beyond Broccoli is based upon planting the seeds of nutritional change for long term health and wellbeing. Whether we are counseling individuals, families or couples, teaching small group nutrition classes, presenting large group nutrition lectures or food demonstrations, or writing about nutrition, the same passion is at the core. Food first – and foods that are good for your health can taste great, fit into your lifestyle, and be enjoyed with people you care about.
New Ventures for Beyond Broccoli
More exciting ventures here at Beyond Broccoli. We have left Jackson Hole, Wyoming and headed to the northwest to begin a new chapter in the Seattle area. Mary will be an adjunct faculty member at Bastyr University during the fall and winter quarters in 2009. Beyond Broccoli is still consulting with the Jackson Whole Grocer and will continue to offer long distance nutrition services in the Jackson area. The Beyond Broccoli newsletter will resume during the fall of 2009 to keep you informed of nutrition news and Beyond Broccoli happenings.
