How To Make An Early Spring Au Pistou |

What is Soupe Au Pistou? It’s officially spring.  So let me first start by saying ‘happy spring’.  Aren’t we all ready for spring come this time of the year?

Intuitively, summer or fall — with its corresponding bounty of vegetables — may seem ideal for this soup; however, soupe au pistou is truly a…

About Rhonda Cain

Working in health care for over 17 years, I thought I had always lived a fairly healthy lifestyle. Almost 3 years ago I embarked on a journey and soon realized everything I had been taught to better health was actually the culprit of many of my problems. In the process of changing to eating whole, organic foods, researching how it effect our lives, my eyes were opened to "green living". I began to venture out in my great city, Kansas City, which I have lived in for over 20 years, and have met some amazing people setting the pace for a local movement in the food and environment awareness scene. My goal is to educate people "living green" can be much more than recycling cans and paper; it can lead to good eats and a healthier lifestyle.
