winter salads hot and cold salads for chilly winter weather by Audrey Johns

When the weather turns cold we tend to crave hot, heavy meals. Cold salads are swapped for hot soups and barbeque chicken for roasted turkey. I tend to lean towards salads with hot elements during this time of year and these three delicious salads are my favorite. So instead of giving up your cold salads this season, add warm elements like steak, chicken, rice or delicious quinoa.

Sliced Almonds

Asparagus Spears

Tomatoes

Fresh Top Sirloin

Baby Spinach

Pomegranate

Quinoa

• raw ingredients that work well as warm ingredients in winter salads

sweet + savory quinoa spinach salad INGREDIENTS Preparing the Salad: 1 cup quinoa 2 cups vegetable broth 6 cups baby spinach 2 apples cut into bite-size chunks 1 cucumber halved and sliced 1 avocado chopped into bite-size chunks 2 tomatoes chopped into bite-size chunks 1 scallion sliced finely 2 tablespoons capers, drained 4 tablespoons golden raisins www.IndulgeSLO.com

Preparing the Vinaigrette: 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup orange juice 3 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium sauce pan combine the quinoa and vegetable broth, cover and bring to a boil. Then lower the heat to a simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS In a small bowl or an empty mason jar combine the vinaigrette ingredients and give it a good shake or whisk.

For the salad, rip the spinach as you place it onto two plates leave a little room in the middle for quinoa. Add Âź of the quinoa to each plate, top with apple, cucumber, avocado, tomatoes, scallions, capers and raisins. Drizzle some of the dressing over the top of the salad and serve.

steak house salad with pomegranate vinaigrette INGREDIENTS

4 asparagus spears 1 tomato 1 cup frozen corn 1/4 cup goat cheese handful of basil (optional)

Preparing the Steak: 1 pound sirloin steak 1/2 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder 2 teaspoon garlic powder

Preparing the Dressing: 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1.5 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup pomegranate juice 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Rub on both sides of the steak, cover steak in cling wrap and place in the fridge for two hours or overnight. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a ridged cast iron pan on medium high, place steak on and grill each side for 5-6 minutes. Place the pan in the oven for 15 minutes, less if it is a thin

cut. When the steak is done let it rest for 10 minutes, then slice thinly against the grain. In a small bowl combine corn with a quarter cup of water and microwave for 3 min. Remove from microwave and let sit for five more minutes before draining the water. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the asparagus into long strips, set aside. Chop the tomato into bite-size pieces and set aside. Combine all dressing ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well, set aside. On a large plate or in a large bowl, rip up the spinach leaves. Top with arugula, asparagus strips, tomatoes and corn. Drizzle dressing on salad. Thinly slice the steak before placing on top of the salad, add crumbled cheese and ripped basil to the top before serving.

Thomas Hill Organics Refreshes and Expands Favorite Paso Robles Bistro Grows to Include New THO Wine Bar

The much-loved Thomas Hill Organics Bistro and Wine Bar recently expanded into an adjacent space which is now the Thomas Hill Organics Wine Bar.  The acquisition also redirected the location of the popular restaurant’s entrance, which is now directly on Park Street in downtown Paso Robles. Featuring a comprehensive and creative wine and beer list, the new THO Wine Bar now offers table service overseen by Wine and Service Director, Serena Harkey. Regular specials and wine by the 1-oz. taste or by the glass allow diners to explore the full array of Harkey’s wine list in the same rustic-chic ambiance as the original

Thomas Hill Organics Bistro. While THO’s layout and scope of service may have changed, Chef Julie Simon’s menu remains as original and distinctive as ever. Eclectic dishes like Pan-Roasted Alaskan Halibut with Arugula and Carrots Salad, Cara Cara Oranges, Roasted Kumquats, Kumquat Olive Oil, Spicy Harissa, Coriander Crème Fraiche, and Cumin-Spiced Almonds continue to provide the heart of the THO experience. “Expanding into the wine lounge space is a response to the popularity of what we’ve done over the years, the freshness of the ingredients and the creativity of Julie’s

menu,” said proprietor, Debbie Thomas, who opened Thomas Hill Organics in 2009 as a delicious way to show off locallygrown organic produce, grains, and proteins.   Thomas Hill Organics also continues to cater for a wide array of functions including birthday celebrations, wine events, weddings and holiday parties. Chef Julie and her team work with clients to design seasonally-inspired menus that create a one-of-a-kind experience, whether on the THO fully-covered outdoor patio, in a private home, or among the vines at one of the Central Coast's beautiful wineries. www.IndulgeSLO.com

Paso Robles Wine Country Named Wine Region of the Year Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced today that the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area (AVA) has received the honor of being named the 2013 Wine Region of the Year in the magazine’s annual Wine Star Awards. Paso Robles Wine Country, located along California’s famed Central Coast, is midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco with over 200 wineries and 32,000 vineyard acres. The region’s winemakers, growers and industry are ecstatic to be held in the highest regard among some of the world’s greatest wine producing regions with this incredible award. “Since 1983, when the Paso Robles AVA was first created, the region has grown exponentially with talent, quality and artistry,” said Gary Eberle, owner of Eberle Winery. Paso Robles as a wine region has been gaining in popularity in recent years with a number of accolades through exemplary

point scores, creative video marketing initiatives and high profile articles and reports. The AVA continues to mature with a current proposal to create 11 districts within the boundaries of the Paso Robles viticultural area which will allow growers and vintners to tell their stories more clearly, which in turn will give consumers and trade a much greater understanding of Paso Robles’ diversity and complexity. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our wineries and growers whose individual accomplishments help raise the bar of the region as a whole,” said Jennifer Porter, Executive Director of the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance. The Paso Robles wine region and the winners of the 2013 Wine Star Awards will be honored at an industry studded gala/black-tie awards ceremony at the New York Public Library in New York

Sarzotti Winery & Vineyards by Audrey Johns My first experience with grape vines was in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. Driving up and down Haven boulevard mesmerized by the vine bushes that lined the open land on the side of the road. I passed those vines everyday on my way to school and later every day to college and work. Years later, pulled by my love of the vine, I moved my family up to the Central Coast and imagine my surprise to stumble upon the same family winery that had enchanted me with their vines since I was a child. Sarzotti Winery moved their operation from Rancho Cucamonga to Templeton in 1999 and the family has been making award-winning wine ever since.

BISTRO & WINE BAR

F

rom the Farm to your Table. We believe in the significance of organic, regionally-produced

food. We work with local purveyors for our natural or grass-fed beef, lamb, and poultry and seasonal, local fish. Local farmers provide our fruits and vegetables, which are always straight-from-the-earth fresh, and our breads are crafted by local bakers who are celebrated artisans of their trade. Let us surprise and delight you with the best food and wine this region has to offer!

GET FRESH WITH YOUR FOOD! Be sure to enter through our new lounge off of Park Street OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK FOR LUNCH AND DINNER

1313 Park Street (new entrance) | Paso Robles, CA 93446 (t) 805.226.5888 | (f) 805.226.5890 | (e) info@ThomasHillOrganics.com | www.ThomasHillOrganics.com

Family owned and operated, Sarzotti’s fourth generation winery is 100% hands-on. From planting to harvesting, managing and pouring, Sarzotti wine is a family affair. When visiting their tasting room, you feel like you have been invited backstage to “the show” because their production facility and tasting room share the same building. The walls are lines by stunning watercolor paintings of vineyards, grapes and farm life and there is always gourmet cheese or homemade bruschetta to nibble on. Sarzotti’s wines are bold and fruit forward, full of flavor and complexity. Known for growing all their own grapes the Sarzotti family takes great pride in their signature blend Vin Tavola, meaning table wine in Italian, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The deep cherry and plum notes make this sophisticated wine great for holiday dinners. Vin Tavola has won bronze medals in both San Francisco and Orange County, and for its price below $20.00, it is a bottle that is reasonable enough to purchase for gifts but complex enough to add to your collection. Equally amazing is their two-time silver and onetime bronze winning 2007 Syrah. Aged in oak barrels for five years their Syrah is full of flavor, with layers of spice and notes of currants, plums and blackberries. Finally Sarzotti’s Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for forty-two months in oak which brings out a soft, balanced tannin. Elegant flavors of raspberry and boysenberry round out this award-winning wine making it perfect for sipping or for enjoying with food. Try these and many more varietals Thursday through Saturday 11:00am5:00pm at 180 Bella Ranch Road in Templeton. Make a resolution to visit more family-owned businesses in the New Year, and start with some of San Luis Obispo County's family-owned and operated wineries like Sarzotti. Bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic under the trees or a quiet seat on their swing for two, enjoy the stunning view with a glass of Sarzotti’s delightful wine!

Claiborne & Churchill, Edna Valley

The “Vineyards of Eden,” San Luis Obispo’s Wine Country Known as ‘the Vineyards of Eden,’ the wineries of South San Luis Obispo County are respected around the globe for their world-class wines. Vineyards carpet the hills and hollows of the Edna Valley and the Arroyo Grande Valley— each a designated American Viticultural Area— as well as the Avila Valley and Nipomo. European settlers learned early that the climate and soil around San Luis Obispo are ideal for growing wine grapes. Back in the days of the Spanish missions, Franciscan padres planted vineyards to make wine for sacramental purposes. Local people have been producing wine commercially for about 100 years, but it is only in the past two decades that SLO’s wine region has blossomed. Of San Luis Obispo County’s many wineries (there are about 30,000 acres of vineyards and more than to 200 wineries), over two dozen lie in the AVAs just south of SLO city. The cool climate and marine sediment in the soil of Edna Valley nurture superior Chardonnay and are ideally suited to Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache and white Rhone varietals such as Roussanne and Viognier. Wine lovers can drive serene back roads through rolling countryside to discover the treasures of San Luis Obispo wine country. A tour of the highlights starts at Saucelito Canyon

Vineyard, the oldest producing vineyard in the county. Dry-farmed vines planted in 1879 yield the grapes that go into the vineyard’s remarkable Zinfandel, late-harvest Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. In a tasting room with 180-degree ocean and valley views, Laetitia Vineyard & Winery pours estate-grown Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and Merlot. Laetitia also makes one of SLO wine country’s few sparkling wines, a noteworthy and popular offering. Next on the sipping tour is the big tasting room at Talley Vineyards/Bishop’s Peak, which specializes in estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

style wines—Riesling and Gewürztraminer—in addition to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The winery occupies a straw-bale building that provides ideal conditions for wine storage. At Edna Valley Vineyard, a pioneering winery best known for its estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the tasting room’s 30-foot cherrywood bar is backed by huge windows. The view, over the vineyards to a range of volcanic peaks, is sublime. For a break from wine-tasting, shop the winery’s extensive selection of wine-related gifts, books and fancy foods, then have a picnic amid lush landscaping.

Northwest of Talley is Chamisal, a vineyarddesignated winery. Using traditional winemaking techniques, the winery transforms Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah grapes into critically acclaimed wine.

Last of the highlights is the state-of-the-art Tolosa Winery complex. In a sleek tasting room overlooking the fermentation tanks and barrel room, Tolosa pours Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot Noir. Opened in 2004, the facilities are a harbinger of the future for San Luis Obispo wine country, which continues to boom in sales and critical recognition.

Just down the road is Kynsi Winery, a family operation in a restored dairy. Here Don and Gwen Othman carefully create Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and blends that exhibit exceptional richness and depth. Claiborne & Churchill, west of Kynsi, departs from the Edna Valley norm to produce crisp, dry Alsatian-

Wine lovers can drive serene back roads through rolling countryside to discover the treasures of San Luis Obispo wine country. A tour of the highlights of the region can be found on the San Luis Obispo Vintner’s website at www.SLOwine.com. For mor information call 805.541.5868.

We live in a culture that values choices. In fact we have so many choices that we get overwhelmed by them. We have several hundred brands of cereal. We have a thousand channels on cable and the video store carries thousands of movies. A restaurant menu usually features a few pages of options and a few specials. With the holidays approaching we become bombarded with advertising that’s trying to grab our attention and win our consideration.

What we don’t usually consider is how we vote with the choices we make. We usually don’t think of the responsibility that comes with making a choice. To us it is just another box of cereal. Another basket of strawberries, another night at the movies, another t-shirt, another automobile. We think of our choices as relevant to us only as if the whole economic and social universe revolves around what we want.

Call 238-9395

Here’s another look at the matter. It makes a difference where you buy your strawberries because your money is either going to feed a farmer you have direct contact with at the farmer’s market, or an unknown business entity. Whatever you feed, prospers. We vote with our choices. We vote with our money. We vote with our time. Our votes then become an indication of what we value. Since we all have to work for our money and our time is limited, how we choose to spend them shows what’s really important to us. Friendships are nurtured when people spend time together. Local enterprises survive when people value them. Relationships thrive when we devote time and energy to them. Our own growth flourishes when we take the time and devote the resources necessary for growth to happen. Our children depend on us to make them feel at least as important as our jobs. Our partners and friends know that we care through our generosity and availability. Most people are making choices automatically, out of habit or convenience and in consideration of their own personal benefit only. It never occurs to us that through our choices we co-create our everyday reality. When we look around and see things in our lives that we wish are somehow different, it’s easy to blame someone else, “the system”, “the government”, the corporations. How about looking at the way we have contributed to the situation with the choices we’ve made and the votes we’ve cast, time and money wise. How many cans of soda pop did we purchase this year? How many times we went to the park with our children or loved ones? How often do we gift a nice gift to a friend, proportionate to how we really feel about them? How many times we donated our time to a worthy cause? What brands are in our closets? How many times did we say “yes” to the boss and “sorry” to our spouse? It’s impossible to be perfect and life is complex so we are forced to juggle multiple considerations. It is also true that a little effort in the right direction, goes a long way and the gratification we get from knowing that we are doing the right thing will keep us motivated to stay conscientious. What do you like to see more of in your life? What have you postponing because you think you don’t have the resources? What changes are you willing to make? What are you saying with your choices?

is of the utmost importance. We have spent so much time primping and taking care of all of the things in our physical world but none of that really matters when our psychological world is not functioning smoothly. As funny as this analogy might be, people often see me like they see their dental hygienist. They come in every six months to clean off the plaque in their emotional lives. If we give our psyche the same importance as we give our teeth, with regular cleanings and awareness, life is a whole lot sweeter.

What do you say when others are skeptical of this practice? Whenever I give lectures to large groups of people, I am always looking for a big burly guy who is rolling his eyes to what I am saying and who is skeptical about the utilization of muscle testing. It will be him that I choose for my demonstrations. The look on the skeptics’ face when there is a clear difference in strength from weak to strong is evident when I am able to demonstrate how quickly and accurately I can probe into their past experiences, is a wonderful sight. These skeptics quickly become my strongest advocates.

Dr. William Mehring

Finding Peace in Chaos: A Path to Life with Less Stress, Less Disease and Better Decision Making An Interview with Dr. William Mehring by Lauren Whipkey

What are the basic principles of your practice? My practice is a blend of my degrees in education in chiropractic, psychology, homeopathy and hypnotherapy. I utilize the muscle testing found in chiropractic known as applied kinesiology in conjunction with psychological principles. I have created a psychological process called E3. This stands for emotional energetic evolution. The basic steps of this practice are to access the emotional issues that create the stress and often dis-ease in your life. Once the issue is found we expand the understanding of how often and frequently it affects you in your life. With muscle testing and intuition we quickly access the original event where you structured a reaction to a difficult event in your life. Then with mild hypnosis, we change the brainwave state so that person can harmonize that specific event and download a new way of handling that situation. Most often these belief systems are created when we are very young and lack the experiences or the access to our internal wisdom to create a path that is accepting and without stress. Through this awareness the person is then able to have a different reaction to the things that once cause them stress. Imagine a life where there are so many less things that cause you to become frustrated, elevate your blood pressure or make you angry. This is the direction of my practice.

What sort of ailments do you most commonly treat? My patient base is quite varied. Sometimes people come to me with chronic pain or diseases that they feel have an emotional component. My work is to help them with that dis-ease or to navigate life with that disease. I see people that have issues with depression to people that are looking to determine allergies or find the foods that might be in their best interest. There is always room in my practice for people working on relationships. The point is that we are emotional beings and we are coming into an age where we realize that our emotional well-being

20 Indulge Magazine | SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY

How did you become interested in this path? For twelve years, my chiropractic work focused on a musculoskeletal practice. What I found was that there were people who despite the best adjustment, stretches and exercise continued to have recurring pain. It became my search to find the tools that it would take to help even those chronic patients. I began to expand my knowledge into other avenues. It was integrating the emotional work in conjunction with hypnotherapy that created the magic. I remember my first initial patient who had been on disability for three years from neck and low back pain. When she left my office that day she was effectively pain-free and I never adjusted one bone. Now my practice now is only focusing on the emotional work. Additionally I teach courses in my technique, emotional energetic evolution, E3 as well as the ancient Taoist practice of Qigong, meditation and techniques to access one’s subconscious mind to determine the origins of stress. My book, “Finding Peace in Chaos” is the text that accompanies my course but most people are purchasing the book in their quest to be on the path of a smoother life. Join Dr. Mehring and Lauren Whipkey for a Day of Introspection on Dec 21 from 9:00am-4:00pm at Mehring Learning Center. Reserve your space by calling 805-904-5567 or 805-461-3300 or visit Findingpeaceinchaos.com or rootsflowyoga. com for more info. The workshop costs $75.

MAJOR EVENTS TO BE HOSTED IN PASO ROBLES Save the date! Visit San Luis Obispo (“SLO”) County is proud to announce Paso Robles has been selected to host the West Coast’s top two 2014 wine events: the Wine Tourism Conference Nov. 12 to 14, and the Great American Wine Festival Nov. 15, 2014. Located mid-way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, SLO County includes some of central California’s popular communities and travel destinations - from laid-back surfing haven Pismo Beach and artsy college hub SLO to rustic wine town Paso Robles. Visit the website to both events (below) to sign up for future updates; tickets are limited and will go on sale in early 2014. “This is a huge win for SLO County and Paso Robles residents and merchants, as well as for wine aficionados novice and expert alike,” said Stacie Jacob, executive director of Visit San Luis Obispo County who, along with Travel Paso (Paso Robles’ tourism alliance) was instrumental in securing the dual event. “We are thrilled to add these opportunities showcase our beautiful and hospitable County in 2014, which benefit residents, merchants and local government by driving a thriving economy.” “Paso Robles is one of the best wine regions in the state and we are always delighted to welcome both new and returning visitors, “said Travel Paso Destination Manager Amanda Diefenderfer. “SLO County continues to win the big wins and earn its reputation as an idyllic setting for tourism events,” notes Stacie Jacob. “In addition to being known as a mecca for wine and food enthusiasts, we’re the place you simply want to be on vacation. We’re often on those “happiest” and “healthiest” places to live lists because we don’t take ourselves too seriously and we make time for ‘pure play.’”

THIRD THURSDAY A FUN AND FABULOUS WAY TO GIVE BACK THIRD THURSDAY PER MONTH Downtown Paso Robles

The Third Thursday concept originated as a co-branding customer appreciation day by Jacque Leonard, owner of Salon Roux in downtown Paso Robles. Leonard was subsequently asked if the concept could be shared in a more profound way through must! charities by Carole MacDonal of Il Cortile Ristorante and La Cosecha Bar + Restaurant.

“I was more than grateful to be a part of a bigger picture. It’s amazing to see our Third Thursday event spread to the downtown merchants and restaurants. It warms my heart to know that now, through this monthly event, we can reach more of our community as they take advantage of special discounts and offerings, and in turn give back to our community through must! charities,” said Leonard. “We were thinking of a way to give back and to show off downtown Paso Robles,” said restaurateur, Carole MacDonal of Il Cortile Ristorante and La Cosecha Bar + Restaurant, whose establishment have previously partnered with must! charities. “Third Thursday is a fun way to accomplish something meaningful and long lasting,” said MacDonal. The mission of must! Charities is to improve quality of life in San Luis Obispo’s North County by partnering with existing non-nonprofits in fields such as education, healthcare, mentoring and employment coaching to create long-term, sustainable transformation within the region. Third Thursday gives local businesses and their customers an opportunity to contribute to and partner with local non-profits to make a difference.

Third Thursday puts the community first. must! charities has teamed up with several downtown Paso Robles businesses to host “Third Thursday,” wherein every third Thursday of the month, consumers can shop, eat, drink and play knowing that a portion of the proceeds will help create sustainable health, hope, compassion and resources for those in need.
