Carrot Ginger Soup, Brussel Sprout Salad, and Chocolate Covered Cranberry Fruit Jellies
BY THE MAGAZINE OF YOGA STAFF
We love searching for the best of the best from food blogs all over the world, but like Dorothy, we must conclude that “there’s no place like home.” For the final Really Healthy of 2011 we’d like to feature the web pages of our beloved columnists and contributors. We celebrate their innovation, super gorgeous photography, humor, and dedication to food and cooking that is not just healthy, but both delicious and fun to eat.
Sally Pasley Vargas’s gorgeous blog, Cooking Lessons, sported a makeover earlier this season, and both Tram Le’s Nutrition to Kitchen and Natalie Lewis’s Daily Crave have brand new looks for the New Year. Exploration will be richly rewarded with creativity, beauty and recipes that you’ll want to make over and over again.
Real Life Is Real Yoga
We especially want to honor Tram, who embodies courage, resolve, indomitability and the yoga of real life.
Tram was in a horrific automobile accident in November of 2010. She suffered a traumatic brain injury. At the time of the accident, she was pregnant, and gave birth to her baby prematurely. Tram spent months in the hospital, and many more in painstaking rehabilitation. With love, support and a reserve of tenacity and courage that leaves us awestruck, Tram is back to cooking, blogging, and raising her baby with her husband.
Please join us in sending Tram warm wishes for continued recovery, success with her blog, and in wishing her and her family a very happy and healthy New Year, filled with the every day joy of living.
Carrot Ginger Soup
Whether you need a go-to soup for a winter lunch, or a comforting “day after” tonic for January 1st, this perfect in its simplicity Carrot Ginger Soup exceeds expectation. Fresh carrots are balanced with mild pearl onions and a zing of grated ginger in this soothing and flavorful soup.

Brussel Sprout Salad
You will convert even the most avid of brussel sprout naysayers with this preparation. Caramelized shredded brussel sprouts are tossed with dried cranberries, pecans, parmesan cheese and a squeeze of lemon. Seconds, please!

Cranberry Jellies Covered in Chocolate
“So very French and so very beautiful” and so very irresistible, we might add! These stunning Cranberry Jellies dipped in Chocolate would make wonderful gifts if only you could keep yourself and your family from devouring them! Sally makes the daunting project of candy-making easy and fun with her step-by-step instructions.
