Sunday bliss

This may be the richest Sunday on record! The morning ride was bittersweet–relief from the hot summer temperature, but a stark awareness that Fall is soon to arrive. The smell of damp flora and the chill in the air was all about the change of seasons. A hard but brief rain would convince me for sure. Later, a two (yes 2!) hour massage. Absolute heaven. Now, the quiche is in the oven, green beans and garlic are ready to be roasted, artichokes are simmering. The afternoon light illuminates the kitchen, it is so cozy in there, and the smells are so tantalizing. Soon, I will sit with my family to savor a home cooked, locally raised dinner (the chokes come from Monterey area), basking in the joy that is my life. I am truly blessed.

"When my husband of 34 years died I lost my interest in cooking.  Instead I began relying on quick frozen organic entrees and dinners. After three years I decide to improve the quality of my diet, so I contacted Robin Mallery. Robin helped me create a more nourishing and healthful diet that took my busy teaching and consulting schedule into consideration.

It was a joy to work with Robin. She is knowledgeable, supportive, intuitive, and warm.  I highly recommend her as a Heart Healthy Coach.

Through lifestyle counseling, the sharing of her delicious and healthy family recipes, and an informative and fun "field trip" to a local whole food market, I have shifted to an eating plan that is healthy, delicious, and swiftly prepared. The key to swift and healthy meal preparation for me has been Robin's 90-minute Sunday afternoon food prep model, a strategy that assures quick and delicious high quality meals throughout the week. I consider my leisurely Sunday afternoon food preparation time as self-indulgent "me" time, and enjoy chopping, baking, and sauteing against the backdrop of classical music and a glass of wine.  I also love the fact that a nutritious and delicious dinner is ready when I walk through the door every night of my work week.  It's as if I finally have that personal chef I have always coveted, only it's me!"  ---Patricia J., Nevada City
