The facilities are top of the line and beautiful. The campus is stunning as it sits in a redwood forest! Pop on over and take a look.


I have to give my daughter, Kaia most of the credit for this recipe. She has been coming up with some amazing dishes lately and one of her favorite is a corn and arugula salad with an avocado dressing. Her’s is a little simpler and uses oil in the dressing. Of course I needed to get in there and change things up a bit. But she is my inspiration…as she is for many things in life. Interesting how that happens!Corn and Arugula Salad

The main ingredients in this salad are arugula, corn, tomatoes and yellow squash noodles. The dressing is oil-free and uses avocados, garlic, hemp seeds a little nutritional yeast and salt and pepper. SO easy to make! The cool part is you can use pasta to replace the squash noodles if you want to. It would be an interesting substitution. We love brown rice noodles around here, when we use them.

You can also spiralize your own! I use the Kitchenaid Spiralizer but a more economic solution is this spiralizer. (Click links) You can also click the pictures on the right side for more information on some of the things I used in this recipe.

    Thank you so much for all these recipes!! I was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and I need to drastically change my diet and this website is so very helpful! Do you have any more recent posts on any other platforms?

      I’m so sorry that you’re struggling with this right now! I just wanted to jump in and say that I adopted a mostly raw, plant-based diet after my stage 4 cancer diagnosis. I wasn’t expected to live a year and 18 months later I’m cancer free. Changing your way of eating really can change your life!

    If you can’t have Nutritional yeast, do you have suggestions for a replacement?

      Hi, Kelly, I would throw in a teaspoon of light miso paste. Thanks for asking!
