You can never stop learning. That is what I have realized. All herbalists, health coaches, nutritionists & chefs all have wisdom to share. Right when I got in touch with the Great Kosmic Kitchen, their book beamed with this energy I was searching for and I knew that I had to connect with them about their sacred herbal rituals about eating and living.
What these girls gave me were the tools to take on some of my greatest health desires — to prepare food for the week, to start a garden, to religiously attend the farmers market and get my sugar cravings under control. They gave me so many quick and easy tips, that now come second nature to me, and I am eternally grateful for their program.
I love how they gave a step by step and day by day guide for when to shop, cook & prep the meals. I really felt like they were there right beside me, even though they weren’t there physically. One of my favorite recipes was the frittata. I am obsessed with finding the freshest farmers market vegetables and getting creative each week.
My carb snacks have since switched over to fresh raw farmers market veggies (mostly snap peas, my favorite)! I have become a huge fan of their Kitchari. I usually make a batch once a week, and have noticed that the variety of fresh herbs (that I love to order from Mountain Rose) have really helped my digestion. Licorice tea has been a key herbal component / recommendationmade to me for curbing my sugar cravings. Prepping food for the week gave me this sense of calm, knowing that wherever I went or when I gothome — that I would have something healthy to snack on. This has supported me to make better food choices.
There is nothing like the experience of shopping, prepping & eating your own meals for an entire week straight. This was my time for me to focus on myself and make the changes I have always wanted to make, and by having someone to hold me accountable, I was able to make these habits last. I highly recommend this program for their accent wisdom that can be easily adapted to a modern lifestyle.

garlic | herbs
2 ½ cups cooked quinoa, at room temp
4 eggs, beaten
½ tsp sea salt
⅓ cup scallions or chives, chopped
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
⅓ cup goat cheese (also fine to omit)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup bread crumbs or ground nutsalmonds,
walnuts, pecans. Plus more if needed.
water, if needed
1 Tbsp ghee, butter or coconut oil
Combine quinoa, eggs and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in the chives, onion, cheese and
garlic. Add the bread crumbs or nuts, stir and let sit for a few minutes so the bread
crumbs can absorb some of the moisture. At this point, you should have a mixture you
can easily form into 12, 1inch thick patties. Heat the fat in a cast iron skillet on medium
heat. Once melted and hot, begin to form the patties adding about 6 or less to the
skillet. Make sure they have enough room to be flipped easily. Cover and cook for 7
minutes or until nice and brown on the bottom. Flip and continue to cook until patties
are browned. Remove from the skillet and cool on a wire rack or plate while you cook
the remaining patties.
Note: Ground almonds or walnuts work well in place of breadcrumbs if you want a gluten free
option. * Adapted from Near & Far by Heidi Swanson
