Guest Chef: Christine Waltermyer
Christine Waltermyer from the Natural Kitchen Cooking School
Visitors to the store tried two of Christine’s fabulous recipes: Lentil Walnut Pate with The Tubby Olive Cinnamon Pear Balsamic and Lemon Olive Oil, and Oven Roasted Root Vegetables with our Lavender Balsamic and Herbs de Provence Olive Oil. When we asked Christine the number one thing people can do differently regarding healthy eating this year, she said, “add some dark leafy greens to your diet. Spinach, broccoli, kale and collards…try them!” You can get some of these from your local farmers market in the summer. Try them with our olive oils and balsamic vinegars for a flavorful creation! You’ll look at vegetables in a whole new light, we guarantee it. There are so many flavorful combinations when you pair our olive oils and our balsamic vinegars together on vegetables. Customers were enjoying Christine’s roasted vegetables on Saturday. Even those who claimed to be averse to beets were going back for seconds and savoring these delicious roasted nuggets. As Christine eloquently put it, “Try INCLUDING, not EXCLUDING!” Meaning add some greens and healthful food items to your diet. Over time, you’ll crave these more healthful items instead of the less healthful ones, we hope! Bon appetit! In her new book, The Natural Vegan Kitchen, Christine shows us flavorful ways to healthful eating.
