Natural Solutions: Relieve Stress & Improve Health

Let’s face it, we all tend to spiral out of mental and physical control toward the end of the year.  With holiday chaos, like shopping, cooking, parties, and still maintaining a job, our stress levels are sky-high and our eating/exercise habits are at an all-time low. The new year is all about rejuvenation.
Many of us want quick fixes for any damage we’ve done. Not only do we want to jump on the new fad diet, but some of us may even think to pop some magic pills to lose weight, increase metabolism, help us sleep or improve our overall mood.
Well, those fads and pills do more harm than good. I don’t know about you, but I’m even weary of taking aspirin for a headache. If I have an ailment or find myself in a funk, I try to evaluate what is going on in my life that is causing the problem. Here are a few tips and alternatives to those mood-altering pills.

Black Bean Burger with Garlic Aioli

For the past few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with black bean meat substitutes. I first tried black bean balls (stop laughing and think meat balls). I baked them and didn’t use any kind of egg replacer. The result: dry and not what I was hoping. Last week, I tried my hand at making burgers, this time, adding ground flax to help bind and moisten. I also felt it would go great with some type of aioli, and I was right! This recipe is super easy and very satisfying. Happy Meatless Monday to all and to all a good bite!
