Announcements and Chinese Spinach

Hello there and happy Friday to you, my beautiful readers. I have some announcements that I've been dying to share with you all! In case you haven't noticed, some things have slightly changed a bit on the blog...I got a new name! I recently changed the blog's name from "Nourish Your Roots" to "Nourish The Roots". Whoa.

Why the subtle change, you ask? Well, to make a long story short, I got all legit on you and decided to make the blog a permanent space by creating a domain (I feel like a queen, haha). So I'm no longer just a blogspot, I'm a .com! Woo hoo! 'Nourish Your Roots' just wasn't going to cut it, and so I had to make a choice. Now, you can simply type '' into your browser and you'll stumble upon me. So fun, right? I feel all fancy. It was a little scary at first to change the name, not gonna lie. I was having withdrawals from it...I felt like I was losing my identity. Okay, maybe I'm being too dramatic, but it was tough. Now, I'm loving the new name...I think it rolls off the tongue beautifully.

The fabulous news is that this doesn't change anything for you. At all. If you have my blog bookmarked anywhere or if my old blogspot address is out there on the interweb or written on a napkin somewhere, you can still click it and/or type it in your browser. It will still take you to this space, you'll just see a different name. So no worries. Whew, Glad we got that out of the way.
Also, I've been a little sneaky lately and slipped a new tab above called 'Consultations and Classes'. This  tab will lead you to a gorgeous little shop where you can see the services I'm now offering. These include private chef services, cooking classes, meal planning, and food coaching. Click here for more details. You guys, I'm really excited about this! Contact me on the blog, on Facebook, or send me an email ( if you have any questions.

And so, I leave you with these gorgeous images of a sexy new green I discovered the other day at the farmers market. The farmer called it Chinese spinach, but I'm not sure if that's the real name or not. Anyway, it's crazy beautiful and also delicious. It wilts down like spinach does, has a bit of a peppery taste, and releases an incredible purple color as it cooks. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it cooked, but sauteing it lightly with some ghee and garlic and some salt? Oh baby it was good. It's always important to vary your intake of green vegetables to make sure you're getting the variety of nutrients found in other green plants. Kale is wonderful and all, but it's great to branch out.

Thank you all for your kindness and support and keep checking back on the blog for exciting new recipes and posts!

Love and health to you,

  4. I'm Harry Roy from Austria. I got kicked out by my boss for no just reason, with much pleading to him, he still gave me deaf ears. I was hopeless not knowing what to do next. I got home with soberness, having my roof top to look at, my dog sitting next to me. I've beaning hearing on how DR OGUDU have been able to handle more critical problems than mine. Having no other option, I searched on how I could reach him and lucky for me, I was able to get to him through his email ( I felt so happy the moment I got response from DR OGUDU, he asked me what bordered me, I wrote him that I was kicked out by my boss and now I'm just like nothing on earth. He gave me six (6) lucky lotto numbers to skate huge money on but I had no idea how to play lotto. I wrote the lotto numbers out and searched online on how to stake on lotto. All thanks to God for making me come in contact with an online lotto player who guided me on how to stake, I did just as the online lotto guidance instructed me. I was surprised when I got a notification from my bank. I opened the message and I was credited by my bank. Indeed, DR OGUDU is a great spell caster and you won't believe it, until you come in contact with him. My life has moved from nothing to something and my passion for lotto grows stronger. I stake with huge money and I don't make my staking without writing DR OGUDU for his special lotto numbers. I want to appreciate my boss who kicked me out of his office because I knew if such never happened, I would still be working for him while he pays me peanut as salary.
