If you can't get your kids to eat their veggies I say get them to drink 'em! Spinach, blueberry, banana, and almond milk smoothie.

Oh, it's good.

Aviva Health Coaching ... Accepting Clients Soon!

I know it has been a while since my last post and I really have a good excuse: see those 3 little people in the above picture? They have been keeping me very busy! (Just when I sit down to relax at the park the two little ones try to pull the blanket out from under me. This is my life, both literally and metaphorically!)

Things have been very exciting with my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I chose my business name: Aviva Health Coaching. Aviva reminds me of the latin word for life (vita) and to live (vivere), which speaks to what I hope to accomplish with my business-helping people change their lives for the better! I have my website up at so check it out if you have time and feel free to give me some feedback at

Here is a great new recipe that I am loving right now. It is quick, easy, SO healthy, and filling. This is great served alongside a nice Pineapple Fried Rice or Noodles with Stir-Fried Tofu. Make a double recipe to bring some to work for the week!

1/4 head purple cabbage, chopped
