Zucchini carrot patties healthy vegetarian recipe

Easy healthy vegetarian recipe

I was on the hunt for an easy, healthy vegetarian recipe to make for breakfast. I’m usually a breakfast-specific breakfast person. That is, I usually have oatmeal, but would also consider eggs, pancakes, waffles, french toast, or toast. Lots of carbs in most of those options. Not a lot of variety. When I lived in Japan, I learned to like the Japanese traditional breakfast of miso soup, small salad, boiled egg, pickles, rice, and fish, but I would only have that if I was staying at a hotel or someone’s house. No way I was going to put that much time and effort into cooking first thing in the morning. 

Why is is that we tend to be so specific about what foods are “breakfast foods?” So, when I saw this healthy vegetarian recipe by Connect Health’s nutritionist/health coach Belinda Morris (@integrating.vitality), I knew this would be a great way to start the day. Or have at lunch or dinner. Or for brunch or linner. 

What I like about it? Delicious. Easy to make. Nutritious.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a Modern Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine VancouverI get to stand on the shoulders of many smart and dedicated people–centuries worth of doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). But one of the greatest strengths of my profession is also one of its biggest challenges. Some people mistakenly think that since TCM is so ancient, it’s not scientific, not valuable in today’s tech-driven world. 

That’s why I wrote this article for Integrative Practitioner about how TCM is a modern medical therapy and how it continues to evolve. Check it out and let me know what you think:
