Happy New Year 2018 to you! As we start our New Year 2018, I decided to share with you every day (my goal!) a quick look at the meals I prepare for myself. The goal is to inspire you to enjoy shopping, cooking, and preparing your own meals intuitively. And to enjoy eating your meals mindfully.


Before I share my first meals (so far) for 2018, I would like to briefly share my food philosophies with you. A few of the keys are:

  • Eat real whole foods. Focus on plants.
  • Eat organic.
  • Eat with the season.
  • Shop intuitively with your local farmers.
  • Learn a few simple culinary techniques.
  • Intuitively experiment in the kitchen.
  • Enjoy food and life.

Superfood Wild Blueberry Smoothie

Today’s smoothie was inspired by a gift of wild Maine organic blueberries and left-over pre-soaked sunflower seeds.



  • Sunflower seeds, pre-soaked 6-8 hours
  • Coconut water
  • Wild organic blueberries
  • Banana
  • Hempseeds
  • Basil

Simple Steps

  • Pre-soak sunflower seeds 6-8 hours in room temperature water.
  • Rinse sunflower seeds.
  • Blend sunflower seeds and coconut water (creates a quick nut milk).
  • Add wild blueberries and banana. Blend.
  • Pour into cup.
  • Top with additional wild blueberries and hemp seeds, and freshly picked basil.


Intuitive Cooking Tip: Create your smoothie with other berries, like raspberries and other nuts, such as cashews or almonds.

My book, “A New View of Healthy Eating,” features 54 plant-based recipes, 3 salmon recipes, and 84 simple culinary techniques.



Happy New Year 2018 to you…Melanie
