Welcome February!

I hope this newsletter finds you warm and cozy! 

I'm happy to share some of the things that have been happening around our home to keep us healthy and happy this Winter -- growing sprouts, a trip to California (I guess that's cheating!), and turmeric eggs to name a few.

I'm also busy preparing for my upcoming class about Kitchen Cabinet Remedies.  There are so many amazing ways to use common herbs and foods to improve our health.  It's really a life-changing way to wander around your kitchen. I hope to see you there!


Let's be friends!

February Update

Dear Friends of Light Footsteps,

Brrr! It sure has been cold outside!

How have you been faring?

It's so easy to get negative about this winter weather, especially by the time February rolls around.  However, I try to think about it a little differently - the shorter days are perfect for cuddling, extra sleep, reading and writing, and PLANNING FOR SPRING! 

Have you started looking through seed catalogs yet? It's a perfect time to begin dreaming of new gardens and what you'll plant in them. It's also a great time to think about what you'd like to grow in your personal life, too.  What new habits or positive mindset do you want to foster in yourself this spring?  Start dreaming!

And today, make an effort to notice what is going on outside.  At first glance, it might still look like we're in the midst of winter, but we definitely are moving in the direction of spring.  Notice the time when it really starts to feel dark out (it's later!), check out the amazing colors and shadows that happen as dusk falls, keep an eye out for returning birds and the mating dances of hawks, and look for some movement (or poop) from awakening mammals ... it's all out there! The seasons are changing and soon enough we'll be rejoicing in the spring weather.

Until then, check out some of our links and join me for my Kitchen Remedies class!

Food as Medicine . . .
Turmeric Eggs
I have been playing around with turmeric a lot lately -- adding it to many dishes and enjoying some classics like golden milk. 

Turmeric has been used in traditional herbal medicine for thousands of years for a variety of ailments, but recently has become known as a star anti-inflammatory herb, especially in regard to the gastrointestinal tract.  It's also shown promise as an herb that helps to protect from Alzheimer's disease, colon cancer, and in helping to reduce arthritis, blood cholesterol, and problematic skin conditions (reference). 

It truly is an amazing example of food as medicine.

Its slightly musky and peppery flavor blends very well with eggs.  To use it in this context, just sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder per 2 eggs before whisking with salt, pepper, and a dash of your preferred type of milk.  Scramble eggs as usual.  Delicious!
News and Events . . .

A colleague has shared a guest post on the blog about the importance of avoiding toxins, especially as it relates to fertility.  Check it out here.

In exchange, I wrote a guest post for the Path to Fertility blog about using herbs to foster fertility.  It covers a variety of creative ways to incorporate herbs in your life to boost your fertility: Create Fertility with an Herbal Lifestyle
