Teriyaki Marinade

Use this great tasting simple marinade on Salmon, chicken, even tofu and enjoy the summer barbeque.
¼ cup water
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup tamari (a very good Soya sauce with no additives)
½ cup maple syrup OR brown sugar if you don’t have pure maple syrup

I usually marinade whatever it is for up to one hour before cooking. Then you will cook your meat, fish or tofu – slowly- on the barbeque. Just before serving take the marinade and heat it up in a small saucepan. Stir 2 –3 teaspoons of cornstarch into a small cup adding 2-3 Tablespoons of water. When the sauce is just at the boil, add the cornstarch mixture and turn down the heat. Stir until thickened. Use as a glaze over your entrée.

I am passionate about diversity, inclusion, sustainability and community. Having raised my children in a small B.C. town as a single parent, I relied on the community, my resourcefulness and the land to sustain us. We developed a market farm,built a cafe and catering business that utilized the produce, local farmers and families to thrive. As a Waldorf school parent I became experienced in biodiversity, edible landscapes and community engagement. I gained substantial skills in leadership, facilitation, project management, communication through teaching yoga and running various business's. My role as a facilitator and trainer to individuals seeking to become a yoga teacher- whom never thought that they could stand in front of a room and speak in public, gave me insight into human nature and coaching. In addition to designing and building businesses - cafés, yoga studios and national training programs, I am a student of Social Development & Social Psychology and understand the complexity and importance of social engagement. I can handle with grace most any situation, having encountered a disability later in life. Consequent to becoming disabled and through advocacy and providing peer support I have trained and acquired extensive exposure and understanding of UN principles on disability, The Human Rights objectives, theories and principles of Universal Design and the various challenges and obstacles for those affected and the relationship to various stakeholders. After 30 years of teaching yoga, my spinal cord injury and subsequent sabbatical has allowed for the integration of my yoga and more in-depth study of the Healing Arts. I have had the fortune of working with some of the best in the field of rehabilitation, Somatic Experiencing and manual therapy including Emilie Conrad, Mark Finch, Judy Russel, Rod Stryker, Carolyn Myss, Ana Forest, & Tim Miller, Susan Harper, Mariah Moser, Herta Buller and Nature.
