JANE AND LINO
We have been fortunate to have lived and taught throughout America in beautiful locales. Wherever we are, we go outdoors and enjoy nature, absorbing the powerful healing energy of the air, sun, sky, trees, plants, and earth. We swim in the ocean in Florida, ski and ice skate in Colorado, do Chi Gong on our deck overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, hike in the Saguaro Desert of Arizona or in New England forests, scuba dive with stingrays in the Bahamas, and splash in waterfalls in Jamaica, VT and CA. Now at home in Asheville, daily yoga and rebounding alternate with a walk around the lake…always breathing deeply to gratefully receive the Chi energy of nature.

GINGERED TEMPEH STEW AND GRAVY by Jane Stanchich
Warm stew is a recipe for real winter fuel. When fresh ginger flavors this rich tempeh (tem-pay,) enhanced by a bit of apple juice and a kudzu gravy, this is a perfect stew for a high protein, sustaining winter bowl or entree. Tempeh, derived from nutritious soy, offers high quantities of phytoestrogens that balance hormones levels, lower cholesterol, and prevent heart disorders. Tempeh is satisfying and delicious when cooked well in this easy, savory recipe. Make my tempeh stew bowl and stoke your inner fire! Recipe here…
