In honor of celebrating the energy of food this week, I have a special guest post from my friend and acupuncturist, Noah Goldstein, from Heartseed Health. Enjoy!

My two-year old daughter is the most magical little human I know. Her bright smile and innocent curiosity allow me to see the world with fresh eyes. Her chirpy voice constantly questions “why” and pushes the limits to get her way. Navigating parenthood requires an ongoing presence and consistent awareness with firm, but gentle boundaries. Parenting reminds me that there are often multiple correct and valid answers to the same question depending on the paradigm we choose to work with. The fluttering white light on the wall could be the reflection from my watch, but perhaps for a two year old it is a fairy. This also comes up every day working as a practitioner of Eastern medicine in a Western world. For instance, when I navigate dietary recommendations with a patient I will often make recommendations based upon Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in additional to offering a Western biomedical explanation. I find TCM and Western medicine create a superb team for nutritional insight and together promote health and vitality.
I'm finally getting this recipe out there. I've made it a million times and sent it out a million more. Here it is for everyone to enjoy!
I don't eat grains myself, but for those of you who do, you'll find that everyone loves this challah, and that it will often be chosen over the gluten one. It's gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with honey or date paste. My kids and husband absolutely love it. The best part is that it is an oat flour bread and you can use it for the hamotzi blessing on Shabbat or other times. This has been great for us when hosting. We can make two loaves of this challah and not have to worry about making a wheat or spelt challah for others. I also make this challah in bread pans because I find braiding to be tedious. Braiding it is totally possible though! My loaves don't have the beautiful traditional braided look, but it's great sliced bread for sandwiches!
