Basic Miso Soup Recipe 🍲 ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
1. Simple dashi base: ⁠⁠
Make a broth by adding to a pot of water a handful of immune-boosting shiitake mushrooms, a small piece of mineral-rich kombu seaweed, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme; bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
2. Vegetables: ⁠⁠
Strain and return broth to the pot. Add prepared vegetables of your choice in a range of colors (longer-cooking ones first, leafy greens, and cooked grains last); cover and simmer until tender.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
3. Miso: ⁠⁠
Place into a bowl a cup of the broth. Add a large spoonful of miso and stir to dissolve. Return to the pot and add freshly grated ginger. Adjust seasonings to taste.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🌱 The following is a chart of #MisoSoup Seasonal Adaptations:⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Spring: we cleanse by adding tender greens, lemon zest, seaweed, ginger, asparagus, peas, scallions, watercress, nettles, and using the adzuki miso that clears stagnation and dampness.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Summer: we cool down by adding chard, spinach, zucchini, cauliflower, corn, seaweed, Job’s tears (a grain), and mellow white miso.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Late summer: we harmonize our stomach/spleen system with the sweet taste of pumpkin, squash, onion, and fennel, using sweet white, chickpea, or millet miso.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Fall: we strengthen our immune system with a ragout of fall harvest vegetables, daikon, mushrooms, astragalus, and use red miso (aged two years).⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Winter: we seek deep nourishment from kidney-supportive black beans, root vegetables, black mushrooms, black sesame, nori, soba noodles, making our soup thicker, stew-like, and using more fully-aged barley or hatcho miso.⁠⁠

Matcha Breakfast Cookies 🍪⁠⁠
These cookies are #vegan, #glutenfree, and made with nutritious ingredients. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Ingredients:⁠⁠
• 1 tbsp flaxseed meal⁠⁠
• 1 3/4 cups rolled oats, divided (OR 1 cup oat flour plus 3/4 cup rolled oats)⁠⁠
• 1/2 cup shelled nuts⁠⁠
• 1 tsp baking powder⁠⁠
• 1/4 tsp sea salt⁠⁠
• 1 very ripe banana, mashed⁠⁠
• 1/4 cup melted coconut oil⁠⁠
• 1/4 cup coconut sugar⁠⁠
• 2 tsp matcha powder⁠⁠
⁠⁠
1) Preheat the oven to 375F.⁠⁠
2) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.⁠⁠
3) In a small bowl, stir the flax meal with 2 tbsp of filtered water (this is sometimes called a “flax egg”). Refrigerate for 5-10 mins while you prepare the rest of the ingredients – the resulting “egg” should be thick and slightly gelatinous.⁠⁠
4) If using rolled oats, pour 1 cup of the oats into a food processor or high-speed blender and grind them to a fine meal, 1-2 mins.⁠⁠
5) Transfer the ground oats (or oat flour) to a medium bowl, along with the remaining 3/4 cup oats, nuts, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.⁠⁠
6) In a separate bowl, stir together the banana, coconut oil, sugar, matcha, and flax egg.⁠⁠
7) Fold the oat mixture into the banana mixture, stirring just until combined.⁠⁠
8) Spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet spacing the cookies 1-2 inches apart.⁠⁠
9) Bake until lightly golden, 12-14 minutes.⁠⁠
10) Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let them sit for 10 mins before eating. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Once cooled, you can place the cookies in an airtight container and store them in a cool dry place for up to 5 days. Enjoy!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Green Pancakes🥞⁠⁠
Who’s ever heard of green pancakes? This recipe can be fun to make on St. Patrick’s Day or with the kids.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Ingredients:⁠⁠
• Use a readymade pancake mix (preferably one using whole grain flour such as spelt)⁠⁠
• Add dry matcha to suit your color and taste palate. You may have to sweeten the mix if the matcha makes the mix bitter. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Make the pancakes as directed on the packet and enjoy! ⁠⁠

“@healingnutrition has really changed how I see breakfast. I now love a hearty savoury Congee for days when I have breakfast a bit later and when I know I need something to keep me going for a long time 💭🕐

Wild rice congee with pickled ginger, an egg from our neighbours, nori, radishes, cucumber, tofu. Topped with sesame seeds & oil, soy sauce and spirulina powder. ⁣

A proper meal that’s gonna keep you going for hours, have you tried it yet? ⁣

To make the Congee:⁣

1. I soak the rice overnight or even just a few hours, (1/2 cup per person is plenty) then blitz it up in a blender. This step is optional but I love how the rice breaks down when cooking. ⁣
2. Fry a little chunk of ginger (sliced), some fresh Chili, and a clove of garlic in oil of your choice, after a few minutes add your rice and dry fry for another few minutes until it starts smelling deeeelicious. ⁣
3. Add your water - start with 1,5-2 then add if you need more and simmer for a good 45 mins. ⁣

Top with all your favourite toppings; seaweed, sesame and soy sauce are highly recommended”

Start the day with a nutritious #energyboost including foods that support #digestion & #mood.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
☕️ #Coffee and #tea, the world’s most popular beverages, prevents a naturally occurring compound called adenosine from attaching to brain receptors that promote tiredness, therefore increasing alertness and attention. It also increases the release of #dopamine and #norepinephrine. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🍫 Enrich your #coffee w/ unsweetened cocoa powder. Chocolate may release a cascade of feel-good compounds, such as caffeine, theobromine, and a small amount of N-acylethanolamine, a substance chemically similar to cannabinoids that has been linked to improved mood. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥣 Morning #oatmeal is comforting, satisfying & healthy. #Oats are a whole grain that keeps you in good spirits all morning. Oats soaked overnight adding ½ tsp lemon juice eliminates irritating acids and contains no added sugar or chemical preservatives.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🍓 Eating more #fruitsandveggies is linked to lower rates of depression. A diet rich in antioxidants helps manage inflammation associated with mood disorders. #Berries provide a wide range of antioxidants and phenolic compounds that play a key role in combating oxidative stress. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥜 #Nutsandseeds are high in plant-based proteins, healthy fats, and fiber. They also provide tryptophan, responsible for producing mood-boosting serotonin. Don't forget Almonds, cashews, peanuts, and walnuts, as well as pumpkin, sesame, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds for protein and kalonji seeds that protect the liver and are anti-inflammatory.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥢 Yogurt: #Fermentedfoods — 90% of the body’s serotonin is produced in the gut, a healthy gut may enhance a good mood. Fermented foods rich in probiotics, which include yogurt, kefir, kombucha, improve gut health and mood. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🍌 There are over 100 species of bananas. We know of only one or two in America. They’re high in vitamin B6, which helps synthesize feel-good #neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. ⁠⁠

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a very different and holistic way of looking at the body and at health. This system uses five natural elements to metaphorically describe the relationship between nature and the body’s life force.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
In this system, poor health is caused by imbalances in or negative influences on one or more of these Elements. Some of the things that can negatively affect the Elements include seasonal changes, weather conditions, certain foods, and stress.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Your sense of vitality and mood depend on these Elements. That’s why we’re going to give you some safe, effective, and gentle natural remedies to improve the Wood Element and the health of your liver.⁠⁠

Today we celebrate Earth Day, an event created to inspire collective action to protect the environment on which all of our lives depend, its land, water, air (and beings).⁠🌎⁠

Let this Earth Day be an opportunity to shift our awareness from seeing the land, water and air (and more-than-human beings) as resources to extract and profit from, and instead acknowledge the generosity of their gifts and aliveness.⁠

What is your role in protecting and recovering a reciprocal relationship with what sources us?⁠

Let us make sure that all of our policies and actions respect the rights of Mother Earth and prioritize what is genuinely sustainable, if not just for her sheer wondrousness and beauty, then also for the fact that we survive and thrive only by protecting this planet and all it provides.⁠ 🌱⁠

Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbs for Women’s Health⁠⁠ 🌱

Chinese herbal doctors look at the body holistically when trying to bring about health and fertility. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
This takes into account issues like: ⁠⁠
〜 The appearance of the tongue⁠⁠
〜 Pulse rate and strength⁠⁠
〜 Facial coloring⁠⁠
〜 Mood⁠⁠
〜 Menstrual history⁠⁠
〜 llnesses⁠⁠
〜 Childbirth⁠⁠
〜 Surgeries ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
With this intensive examination, Chinese herbal doctors gain a deeper understanding of the body as a whole and can supply herbal treatments that support and improve your health safely and naturally. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
These treatments are typically varied and may include: ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
〜 Nutrients for blood production such as goji, rehmannia, dried fruits that supply iron and vitamin C sources such as cornelian cherry.⁠⁠
〜 Herbs to improve the circulation in female organs, hormones and nutrition such as tang kuei⁠⁠
〜 Herbs that increase herbal absorption such as licorice, atractylodes, bupleurum, and white yam⁠⁠
〜 Herbs that reduce water retention or “stuckness” such as cinnamon and fu ling ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
If you decide to try TCM, you will have to work closely with your herbalist. As your health improves or changes, you will need adjustments to the herbal treatment, and it’s important that you not try to make these changes on your own. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
You may also want to try one of the TCM combination remedies that are available. Some of the best and most popular are: ⁠⁠
〜 Women’s Precious Pills, a patent remedy that helps warm the body⁠⁠
〜 Xiao Yao Wan* (aka Free and Easy Wanderer, Relaxx Extract) which supports digestion, menstrual regularity, and emotional balance. ⁠⁠

As we're constantly learning, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness. To find the best personal health plan can take lots of research and fine-tuning habits. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
By zooming into the morning routines of our faculty, alumni, and other members of the health community that we admire, we’ll showcase what works for them. In illuminating these routines' differences and similarities, we hope you’ll find a tangible starting point with your healing.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
For the first interview of this series, we spoke with #HolisticNutritionist & artist @vbiancav. After graduating from AHN in 2019, she went on to foster a virtual community through her #NutritionHotline—a donation-based check-in over the phone. From there, she’s grown a loyal clientele and has constantly worked to build her IRL community through projects like her NYC-based running group and through continuing to morph her artistry from nut butter collaborations to jewelry collections. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
1. I wake up. ⁠⁠
2. I go to the bathroom. ⁠⁠
3. On my way, I put water to boil for tea. ⁠⁠
4. I have a cup of black tea and follow my intuition. ⁠⁠
5. I may go for a run...⁠⁠
6. …or journal...⁠⁠
7. …or sit and answer emails. ⁠⁠
8. I never force anything.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
〜 What led you to this #morningroutine? ⁠⁠
It has taken a few years, I would say. I used to not have a routine at all, and I used to have a strict one. I now follow the path with the least resistance.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
〜 Did any ancient practices inspire you? ⁠⁠
Sometimes I meditate, but only if I feel called to.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
〜 For you, what is the importance of following a morning routine?⁠⁠
I think many people get stuck on a routine because they think it is the healthiest thing to do. It can be but do not limit yourself either. I have learned this the hard way.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Stay tuned for more Morning Routines. 🌱⁠⁠

Chronic stress damages the heart, immunity, and mood. In honor of #StressAwarenessMonth, here are stress-reducing foods to give you an edge.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥬 #Greens provide chlorophyll, antioxidants, and vitamins to soothe our nerves. Among them are lettuce, spinach, and kale which are well-known and easy to prepare. There are others that are lesser-known:⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥗 #Swisschard is packed with stress-fighting nutrients. Just 1 cup (175 grams) of cooked Swiss chard contains 36% of the recommended intake for magnesium. Low levels of magnesium are associated with anxiety and panic attacks. Chronic stress depletes our magnesium, making this mineral very important.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🌱 #Parsley is packed with antioxidants — compounds that neutralize unstable molecules called free radicals and protect against oxidative stress associated with many mental illnesses. Studies suggest that a diet rich in antioxidants may help prevent stress and anxiety. They also help reduce inflammation, which is often high in those with chronic stress. Parsley is a mild diuretic, helpful for reducing hypertension and for the prevention of heart disease.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥦 #Broccoli — A diet rich in cruciferous veggies may lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and mental health disorders. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli are some of the most concentrated food sources of magnesium, vitamin C, and folate — which are proven to combat depressive symptoms. Broccoli is also rich in a sulfur compound that has neuroprotective properties and may offer calming and antidepressant effects. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
🥣 #Fermented foods like #kimchi provide probiotics and are high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Research reveals that fermented foods may help to reduce stress and anxiety. Probiotic supplements and probiotic-rich foods like kimchi have beneficial effects on mental health which is likely due to their interactions with gut bacteria that directly affects mood.⁠⁠

#Kimchi #Recipe🥢 ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Ingredients:⁠⁠
1 medium head napa cabbage⁠⁠
1/4 cup iodine-free sea salt or kosher salt⁠⁠
Water, preferably distilled or filtered⁠⁠
1 tbsp grated garlic (5-6 cloves)⁠⁠
1 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger⁠⁠
1 tsp granulated sugar⁠⁠
2 tbsp fish sauce or salted shrimp paste, or 3 tbsp water⁠⁠
1 to 5 tbsp Korean red pepper flakes (gochugaru)⁠⁠
8 ounces Korean radish or daikon radish, peeled and cut into matchsticks⁠⁠
4 medium scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces⁠⁠
⁠⁠
✔️ Step 1: Cut the cabbage lengthwise through the stem into quarters and then into 2-inch-wide strips. Place the cabbage in a large bowl, sprinkle with salt, and massage it into the cabbage until it starts to soften. Add enough water to cover the cabbage. Put a plate on top of the cabbage and weigh it down with something heavy. Let stand for 1-2 hrs. Rinse and drain the cabbage under cold water 3 times. Set aside to drain in a colander for 15-20 mins. ⁠⁠

✔️ Step 2: Make the spice paste. Rinse and dry the bowl you used for salting. Add the garlic, ginger, sugar, and fish sauce, shrimp paste, or water and stir into a smooth paste. Stir in the gochugaru, (1 tbsp for mild & up to 5 tbsp for spicy); set aside until the cabbage is ready.⁠⁠

✔️ Step 3: Combine the vegetables & spice paste. Gently squeeze any remaining water from the cabbage and add to spice paste. Add the radish and scallions.⁠ Gently work the paste into the vegetables until coated. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Pack the kimchi into a sterilized 1-quart jar. Press down until the liquid rises to cover the vegetables, leaving at least 1 inch of space at the top. Seal the jar. Place a bowl or plate under the jar to catch any flow. Let stand at cool room temp, out of direct sunlight, for 1-5 days. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Check once a day, opening the jar and pressing down on the vegetables with a clean finger or spoon to keep them submerged. Taste a little too! When the kimchi tastes ripe enough for your liking, transfer the jar to the refrigerator. You may eat it right away, but it’s best after another week or two.⁠⁠

10 foods to transition from darkness and inactivity to light and action:

1️⃣ Berries/Cherries: Red berries, blueberries, and cherries are a delicious source of iron for improving blood and circulation. They naturally contain a bountiful amount of antioxidants to boost energy, immunity and fight free radical damage.
2️⃣ Teas: All teas (white, green, Pu'er, oolong, or black teas) provide a valuable source of antioxidants and other natural chemicals that improve digestion and mood.
3️⃣ Whole grains: Whole grains have been recommended since the time of Hippocrates as a source of nutrition and balance blood sugar levels. Useful spring grains: millet, barley, quinoa, and oats.
4️⃣ Greens: Greens are generally cleansing, cooling, and detoxifying for the liver because they can encourage bile flow, which is digestive and laxative. Cleansing bitter green foods may help to reduce allergies and harmful cholesterol too.
5️⃣ Select proteins: Many animal sources of protein like red meat can be hard to digest and heavy on the stomach, so it is recommended to opt for lighter, plant-based proteins like tofu, chia seeds, and quinoa or high-welfare organic eggs, which provide a healthy dose of protein as well as fat.
6️⃣ Cooling, moistening proteins: if you like to incorporate some animal sources of protein, then fish and lean white meat like chicken are the ones to choose.

GOMASIO RECIPE 🥢⁠

Get more sea vegetables into your diet by making a batch of Gomasio, a delicious sesame seed, and sea veggie condiment. Sprinkle it on everything from rice to noodle soups to vegetables.⁠

Ingredients:⁠
~ 1 strip kombu seaweed⁠
~ Small handful dulse seaweed⁠
~ ½ cup black sesame seeds⁠
~ ½ cup white sesame seeds⁠
~ 1 Tbsp sea salt⁠

Directions:⁠
1. Place sea vegetables on a baking sheet in a low oven until dry and crisp (pay attention to prevent burning). Transfer to a mortar and pestle or food processor, and grind until somewhat fine. ⁠

2. Dry toast the sesame seeds by placing in a warm pan (ideally cast iron) over medium heat, tossing or stirring constantly. When their oil begins to release its fragrance, remove the seeds from the heat and place in a bowl to cool. Take care to prevent any burning.⁠

3. Toss all ingredients together until well mixed and store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.⁠

Happy Spring Equinox! 🌸⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Traditional Chinese Medicine's Five Element Theory acknowledges that 5 basic energies make up the universe and humans (Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.) ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Spring is associated with the Wood Element. Wood's correspondences include...⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• Flavor: Sour ⁠⁠
• Energy: Cleansing, Draining, Astringent⁠⁠
• Season: Spring⁠⁠
• Time of Day: After midnight ⁠⁠
• Foods: “Wood Element” foods include lemon, grapefruit, sauerkraut, and vinegar, ⁠⁠
• Organs: Associated with Liver, Gallbladder, impacting joints, muscles, tendons, allergies, headache, arthritis, paralysis, vision⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Spring is also referred to as a time for "Greening" and here are some of its seasonal medicines and energies:⁠⁠
⁠⁠
• In spring, the earth pushes grass and trees upward with tremendous vitality. It is known to be a “damp” season and filled with possibility. The winds bring seeds, buds open, and many rejoice at the sweet rebirth of the Earth.⁠⁠
• Our early morning energy is a time for stretching, walking, tai chi, and qigong. We celebrate the return of flowers and green leaves on trees.⁠⁠
• We eat fresh, local seasonal foods like fresh greens and yellow vegetables, summer squash, light miso, sprouts, adzuki bean, cucumber, shiitake, asparagus, peas, parsley, and cilantro.⁠⁠

Holistic Nutrition can be understood as an approach to food and healing that looks at this whole picture and recognizes several principles.

Know Yourself: there is no singular formula for cultivating health, no diet that works for all bodies at all times, understanding your own constitution (the blueprint you’ve inherited from your ancestors) is fundamental. For example, do you run hot or cold, tend to hold or lose weight, have excess or low energy most often?

Context is Everything: in addition to our constitution, we also consider our current moment. We adjust our diets in response to what nature makes available to us each season. This can look like minimizing raw foods in the winter and focusing on heat-retaining soups and stews and waiting to eat most fruits until they are harvestable where we live. Our body’s needs shift according to where we live and as we cycle through our own “seasons” in life.

Food Energetics: foods exist on a spectrum from cold to neutral to hot (this is their thermal nature); have contracting, cooling, and moistening properties (Yin) or expanding, heating, and drying ones (Yang). Each food also holds the energy of a particular element in nature (fire, earth, metal, water, wood) and the medicine of a flavor (sweet, pungent, salty, sour, bitter).

“Intangible” Nourishment: just as important for our well-being. The quality of our food, air, water, and relationships, matter. We need access to nature (one form of this can be engagement with plant medicine intelligence), mindfulness practices that bring us into a deeper connection with ourselves.

Ultimately, we aim not just to recover wellness but to cultivate radiant health. In this state, our willpower is developed, our vision clear, our humor available; we experience ourselves as being part of nature, of a larger whole. Most importantly, perhaps, our adaptability is enhanced, our capacity to optimally and accurately respond to changes in our internal and external environments.

This is the true foundation of radiant health and the goal of the practice of Holistic Nutrition 🌱 #AHN
