They are the seemingly small or trivial things that lend a feeling of joy, or calm, or peace, or comfort, even if the feeling is fleeting or barely perceptible. They may be small, but it is important to notice them, even to bask in them.

AN UPDATE, ON HEALTH, ON LIFE…

Blog, Health

An update on my health, and an offering of excuse for my long silence… Back in December all of us at GreenLeaf were getting a bit overdone. We were feeling the stress of the holidays, the emotional impacts of the end of the year, and even feeling pressured by our dear GreenLeaf Kitchen. This is a passion project, so if fun isn’t being had, things gotta change.

WELCOME 2018!

Blog, Life

Happy, abundant, healthful, and delicious New Years wishes! In case you hadn’t noticed we took a longer hiatus than we intended. The original intention was to take two weeks off to give the three of us hardworking Green Leafers time to celebrate the holidays, enjoy our families and friends, organize and straighten out the loose-ends of 2017 life, maybe even travel a bit. Then start back refreshed and inspired.

ORANGE STEWED CHICKEN

Blog, Food, Main, Savory, Meat, Recipes

Here is a recipe to warm your kitchen and your tummy, a tender, fall-off-the-bone “stewed” chicken. It is delicious as is, on top of salad, with a grain, in tacos… you can use it as the base for another dish; lasagna, enchilada, casserole… If your pot (I use one of…

About the cook

GreenLeaf Kitchen Lori

Lori Klocek

I love cooking, eating, and being healthy. But healthy only works if it is joyful and delicious!

I used to be an artist by trade, but life-events steered my creative spirit towards food.

I have found my second calling as a health aficionado, amateur chef, and now a Health & Nutrition Consultant. GreenLeaf Kitchen is where I chronicle what it takes to live my healthiest life…

Well, the final result was good, but getting there was crazy... Had so much going on I forgot to add water to the rice! 🀣 Thank goodness for my Instant Pot, dinner was only 30 min late - the extra wait just made everything taste better πŸ˜‹

Today's salad: baby gems & arugula topped with sweet peppers (from Full Belly Farm), radishes, Bulgarian Sheep feta, a pastured egg (again, thank you Full Belly Farm), and a hunk of homemade sourdough focaccia. Yum!

Found a new veg at the market this week. It's a type of cauliflower. A quick steam, then tossed it in the skillet with EVOO and garlic. Super delicious 🀀 But I can't remember the name! Do you know the name?...

On Tuesday I started garbanzos soaking, on Thursday I cooked them. This morning I brought home some fresh basil. After over four hours of putting away groceries, doing dishes, making snaks for kids, doing dishes, chopping, prepping and cooking lunch, helping with math work, eating lunch, explaining the state of the world in elementary terms, doing dishes, chopping,... So, after 3 days and 4 hours I have 2 pints of hummus and 1 pint of pesto. I guess that's a win, right?

Lunch inspired by my favorite lunch spot Standard Fare and what I got this week in my csa from Full Belly Farm: bed of lettuce, leftover pork tenderloin, sauted beet greens with lemon, spring onions and mistake mushrooms, pesto, and a beet. The family opted for the ingredients as a sandwich. So delish!
