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 'nourishtheroots.com' 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 (nourishyourroot@gmail.com) 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,
Renee
