I am a passionate advocate for REAL FOOD -- food that's sustainable, organic, local, and traditionally-prepared according to the wisdom of our ancestors. I'm also an author and a nutrition educator. I enjoy playing in the rain, a good bottle of Caol Ila scotch, curling up with a page-turning book, sunbathing on my hammock, and watching my three children explore their world.

Pot roast is a simple, wholesome meal — one my family turns to on cool Fall and Winter nights. Yet despite it’s simplicity, I’m always looking for new twists on this savory family favorite. Until I saw this recipe for Pot Roast with Apples, Sweet Potatoes, & Prunes in my friend Jenny’s new cookbook, The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle, I had never imagined seasoning my roast with allspice, coriander, and cloves. The result was both savory and mildly sweet — and utterly satisfying. You will love this!
