cooking with nutrition: recipe
in large SAUTE pan combine chopped peppers, green onion, olive oil, seasonings. saute for 5 minutes before adding in the mushrooms. allow to brown and soften just slightly, roughly another 5 minutes.
add in your eggs-
add in your cheese-
scramble up> with wooden spoon or silicon spatula, or what ever you want! ha
cook to desired egg cook> we like our eggs a little runny. not rubbery.
turn heat off-
add fresh spinach
add fresh tomatoes
toss together to let hot eggs just slightly wilt the spinach. keep fresh, tastes so much better when less cooked.
drizzle with tapatio or your favorite hot sauce.
enjoy with your favorite brunchtime meat and fresh fruit.
like all of our recipes- you can substitute any of your favorite veggies, always! We RECOMMEND you try it our way because it's awesome. but add in your favorites or what you have fresh access too.
what is your psoas?
your psoas muscles are the muscles that connect your torso to your legs. they affect your posture and help to stabilize your spine. these muscles directly affect your low back pain, your pelvic floor strength, your hip alignment and that means they aide in controlling the alignment of your entire body. these muscles are the reason for movement. they are tightened by the constant sitting that humans do day and night.
So here's what you can do to help >
Other things you can also do;
1. Foam roll your quads and adductors.
2. Practice Yoga at Camarillo Yoga Center. 3.Avoid sitting so much. Strengthen your glutes and core.

sticky thai chicken drumsticks
This recipe was actually a request from one of our clients- some new asian flavors, easy to cook, healthy and super tasty! Lynn- I hope you love these!
get the delicious, sticky, savory + sweet Asian chicken wings from your favorite restaurant in the comfort of your own kitchen- without all the refined sugars and added salt. these delectable drumsticks are sweetened with a little bit of honey and sticky because of peanut butter! feel free to use any nut butter you chose and substitute agave for the honey.
5-6 organic chicken drumsticks, skin on
4 TB reduced sodium soy sauce
1/2 Lime (Squeezed for Juice)
2 TB Honey or Agave Syrup
1 TB Unsalted Peanut Butter (Unsalted is best- because with salted it might be too salty)
2-3 cloves minced fresh garlic
1 TB. Olive Oil
1 ts. Chili Flakes or a dash of your favorite hot sauce
1 ts. Sesame Seeds
1-2 stalks of green onion, chopped for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Boil chicken drumsticks skin on in water and a dash of salt and pepper on high for 30 minutes in pot with lid.
Strain drumsticks- set aside (should be almost fully cooked- if not fully cooked)
In still hot boiling pot (now empty and heat off). 1TB Olive Oil, 2 Cloves of minced garlic, 3 TB. Soy Sauce, Juice of 1/2 of a lime, 1 ts. Sesame seeds, Dash of Black Pepper, chili flake or hot sauce, 1 TB Honey. Stir in pot to create sauce.
Add in Chicken Drumsticks .
Shake pot with lid, holding lid- to make sure it doesn't pop off. Shake until drumsticks are fully coated in mixture.
Place chicken drumsticks in oven safe dish (with tongs or fork leaving remaining sauce in boiling pot) and cook drumsticks in oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
During those 1st 15 minutes of baking at 400- we are going to simmer the remaining sauce. (Should be most of the soy and lime sauce and garlic cloves.) On a medium low heat cook and add 1 TB more of honey and 1 TB unsalted peanut butter, 1 TB soy. Stir well- with a whisk is best to incorporate all the fat from the peanut butter and the sugar from the honey. This will need to be watched pretty carefully- stirring every couple of minutes. Once it start bubbling, turn down the lowest heat (simmer). Once sauce is thick and sticky turn off heat.
Remove Drumsticks with soy from oven- drizzle or baste sauce onto drumsticks. Place back in oven at 400 for last 10 minutes. Drumsticks should be browned slightly and added the sugary sauce will continue to brown the chicken. Crisping up the skin.
Remove chicken after a total of 25 minutes in oven.
Garnish with fresh green onions chopped.
Let Cool Slightly and Enjoy!
