Split Pea Soup with Potatoes and Dill

Miso Happy Broth

(Cynthia answers the call)
Taking the time to allow land and sea vegetables to infuse a soup stock with their nutrients creates a powerful soup.  The probiotics in the miso make it easy to digest too.  For printable recipe or to watch the video, click here.

Spice Chai Tea

If you take whole spices like star anise, black peppercorns, cardamom pods and whole cloves, buzz them in a small grinder to release flavor, then simmer them with fresh ginger and serve with honey and milk – you’ll throw back your head and guffaw at the lame liquid you pay $3.50 for at your favorite coffee shop.  Ha!  This is the real deal.  Let Jane show you how.
