A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, Health Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs.

Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person. Find out how health coaching stacks up against other health and wellness jobs.

My Three Favorite Salad Toppers!



Salad Fully Dressed!

I realized that I don't share enough recipes on this blog and basically, that's what Rejuvenation And Wellness (RAW) is about -- "Goot Food . . . Goot Health"!!!   It's eating your way to great health and happiness!  I will admit that most of the recipes are not mine and that I'm strictly sharing other recipes with you.  However -- that's how I got healthy . . . by searching the web for recipes made by others who have the knowledge, creativity and time to create these marvelous recipes . I always link back to the authors website or link to a store where you can purchase their product . . . always giving them full credit!  


 I  spend a lot of time at the library taking out RAW food books!!  I LOVE the library!  And last, but not least -- I love  where I purchase a lot of RAW food cookbooks for my  wonderful collection. I keep my laptop right on my kitchen desk so that I can look-up a recipe right there and work off the computer screen.    I do have wonderful RAW recipes floating around my head and I can't wait for the day when I can share those with you as well!  That day will come soon enough! But I digress . . . I do that a lot! I guess you can say I'm a creature of habit.  I make a huge salad to bring to work for lunch everyday.   Sometimes I feel as if I just need to "spice" it up a little.  The recipes below are simple yet add the "punch" I need to make my salads delicious and keep them from getting humdrum!  I put these on top of my salads and besides adding a variety of flavors, they also act as my salad dressing.  The marinades coat the salad ingredients so therefore, there is no need for me to add a dressing of any kind.

Marinated Mushrooms

]Marinated Mushrooms

Marinated Mushrooms

This recipe is quite simple and it comes from Ani Phyo's book Ani's 15-Day Fat Blast.

1 tablespoon tamari or nama shoyu or soy sauce

1/2 tablespoon agave, maple, or brown rice syrup

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 cup sliced shiitake, crimini or portabella mushrooms (even button mushrooms are fine)

Combine in a bowl or zip-lock bag for 10 minutes or longer ( I usually do 20-30 minutes).  

Drain before serving.


Noteed Onions

This recipe is one of my favorites and it comes from Eva Rawposa's Uncooking 101!

1 white onion thinly sliced (I used sweet vidalia's and I've used red onions)

1/4 tsp. salt

 1/8 cup coconut aminos (coconut aminos are a great substitute for Tamari, Nama Shoyu, Soy Sauce -- anything that's soy based.  It is made with coconuts -- not soy - great substitution)

noteed onions

coconut aminos

Thinly cut the onions using a mandolin (I don't have one -- I sliced very thin with a sharp knife -- works just as well).  Massage onion in the coconut aminos and salt.  After a minute or so, they will be take on the texture of a sauteed onion without the cooking!!!


And last, but not lease, a love adding Guacamole to my salads.  


Homemade Guacamole

Homemade Guacamole

Rejuvenation And Wellness (RAW) - Basic Guacamole Recipe

2 ripe avocados - mashed chopped tomatoes (about 1 cup)

cilantro (about 1/4 cup chopped finely)

diced onion or scallions to personal taste (omit if you don't like either)

juice from 1/2 lime

pinch salt

Mix together and serve! 

Salads are not boring!  Nor do they need to be drenched in fattening salad dressing.  I use the above 3 toppings as my salad dressing!  They give wonderful flavors and texture to my everyday salad.  Try one on your salad or try all 3!  But the most important thing to remember is that you
