Kapustnica (Slovak Sauerkraut Soup)

wildnourishment.comThis week we’re thinking out of the box comfort food…as in, European comfort food. Kapustnica is a sauerkraut soup that derives from the amazing country of Slovakia. It’s a sauerkraut based soup that is super delicious and always hits the spot. You can ferment your own sauerkraut, use your own sausage, add or delete ingredients as you please because “that” is just how they cook in Slovakia. There is no exact recipe for this dish. Feel free to play around with what works for your family!

Pesto Chicken

wildnourishment.comI love this part of the summer when all my plants that I’ve grown are starting to be ready for harvest. Right now, my basil is out of control right now (which is a good thing)…so I get the luxury of having amazing pesto whenever I want. I use pesto for salad dressing, marinade, dip sauces…you name it, you can put pesto on it. Here is one of my family’s favorite made with chicken thighs. You are welcome to use any part of the chicken you prefer, or turkey! I guarantee, you will never have a more tender and succulent poultry recipe!

Banana Bread Muffins with White Chocolate Glaze

wildnourishment.comI love dessert! You know what? So should you! I never miss having dessert because I personally feel that once you start depriving yourself, that’s when things get out of hand. I’m always searching and testing for ways to have comfort desserts that are better for you. Not good for you…just better for you. Here is an amazingly moist and light banana bread muffin that I took over the top with a little white chocolate. One half cup to be exact. One wonderfully sinful delicious half cup of white chocolate that becomes a glaze that makes you feel like a million bucks when you are done with it! You know you want to try it…

DAIRY FREE Pancakes

wildnourishment.comYou asked! And you shall receive!! I’ve been receiving a ton of emails and requests for a dairy-free pancake that doesn’t look like a hockey puck. It took some time and some experimenting with a few ancient grains and this is what I’ve come up with. A no frills pancake made with sprouted Spelt. Unfortunately, when you use Einkorn, coconut or almond flour the final product is too dense. If you don’t mind that and prefer one of those grains to Spelt, go ahead. Just know that your final product will not be light and fluffy but delicious nonetheless!

Mussels, Sausage and “Pasta”

You only need one ingredient. Mussels! Everyone in the family will enjoy this. Want gluten and dairy free? No problem! Just use spiral zucchini in place of the spaghetti and omit the Parmesan.

C25K – Week 4 Completed!

www.wildnourishment.comWeek four of my Couch to 5K training is complete! This is officially the longest I’ve stuck with an self-motivated exercise program in over 10 years. I’m completely psyched and ready to see this through to the September 21st Zoo Run Run 5K at Brookfield Zoo. I’m even thinking of going right into the timed run so I have a baseline for future races. That said, I’ve completely overhauled my daily schedule to incorporate new physical challenges. This month is the May Squat Challenge from a great website/blog I found. Want to know how are things working out with the added exercise this week? Keep reading!
