Kate Towell’s Seven Day Cleanse Menu

A great way to experience the Ayurvedic cleansing process is to start with an at-home kitchari cleanse. This type of cleanse will boost your physical vitality and mental creativity. It supports weight loss naturally.

This is one of my favorite seasons – Cleansing Season! This week I finally had the opportunity to clear my schedule so I could do my seasonal cleanse.

I have tried many types of cleanses over the years and must admit the first time I cleansed I struggled. I had a headache, was foggy mentally and constantly thought about when I could eat real food again and have a cup of coffee. I created this cleanse after many failed attempts at juice fasts, master cleanses and other cleanses using shakes, commercial products or herbs.

Spring – time for home repair – Do you really have a warranty?

A number of siding, roofing, window, and painting jobs require installing expensive products. Luckily many of them include warranties that can stretch as long as 30, 40 or even 50 years.

With spring in the air, thoughts turn to home repairs and maintenance. A number of those jobs require hiring a contractor, as well as expensive products to install. This is especially true for a home's exterior surfaces such as siding, roofing, windows and painting. Jobs like these can easily cost thousands of dollars. Luckily many of them include warranties that can stretch as long as 30, 40, or even 50 years. But if you want or need to rely on those warranties, you might want to read the fine print.

Northwest Reads from University Book Store: “Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage,” by Molly Wizenberg

Just months after marrying in July 2007, Molly Wizenberg, writer of the award-winning food blog Orangette, and Brandon Pettit, a Ph.D. student in music composition with a chef's job on the side, decide to open Delancey, a pizza restaurant.

If you’ve had the pleasure of eating at North Ballard restaurant Delancey (1415 70th Street), you know their pizza is impeccable, with high quality ingredients and simple preparation. The décor, glass-covered exposed lights, large framed photographs, and wood fired oven out in the open for all to see, are all welcoming and intentional. “Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage,” Molly Wizenberg's new memoir about opening Delancey with her husband in August 2009, is just as purposeful and well done as the restaurant's food and feel. An insider's look into starting a business from scratch and the Seattle restaurant scene, “Delancey” is Wizenberg’s elegantly written memoir of the struggle to realize a dream.
