Hitting the Pause Button

Dearest Readers,

I wanted to let you know that as of January 2021, Helyn’s Kitchen will no longer be online. So if you have any favorite recipes that you haven’t saved, now would be the time to do so!

2020 has been the most challenging year of my life, not only due to the Covid restrictions and all that has come with this pandemic, but personally, too. I’ve had excruciating physical challenges which led to an emotional and spiritual overhaul. As I’ve contemplated my role in life and on this earth, it’s become apparent that I need to make this change. My Dark Night of the Soul has come and gone and I am well! I hope you are, too. It’s time to move forward together, into the Light!

Sometime in the coming year, I will be launching a new website on a different platform. This will be called Nourishing Nirvana, and will include many whole-food, plant-based recipes from Helyn’s Kitchen (but not all!) and will be a broader scope of service, offering articles on health and nutrition as well as many insights into individual and collective consciousness and how it relates to our overall well being, especially as it involves food and the preparation of recipes. I will also be sharing information and videos about sound healing, meditation, Reiki and more. I hope that you will join me once we’re up and running. I do have your email address and will let you know once we’ve successfully launched so that you can subscribe if you’d like.

It’s been a wonderful eight years getting to know you and sharing my many recipes and life journeys! Thank you for all your comments, questions and support. Mountain Man and I wish you a holiday season filled with joy and love and a simply stellar year ahead.

Healthy trails!
Helyn (a.k.a. Harmony)

    I’m sorry it has been a very challenging year for you Helyn, I hope 2021 is much better. Thanks for your recipes.

    The pandemic has brought a lot of soul searching for many. Living a simple life, staying in the present moment and being kind is the most important and attainable aim for me. The future will never happen the way I would like it to happen so why worry?
    I am looking forward to your next adventure and wish you the best.

    Thank you for your email. As I see you are reaching inwardly, may I offer a very satisfying answer to all life’s problems, especially now. A free website has come to my attention where answers of the deepest and most personal nature can be answered. Please see for yourself. I hope you will find the information helpful and satisfying.

    Wishing you the best,

    This has been a difficult year for many of us! We as mankind have gotten off track by becoming over focused on the material aspects of our life while neglecting the spiritual. This pandemic is meant to bring us back to what matters and to awaken us to a new level of consciousness – yes, it’s been quite a struggle! I am so glad to hear you have come to a new place and will still be offering us your wonderful gifts! You have been most kind and generous – so appreciated! Looking forward to your new blog! Eliza

    I wish you the best with new endeavors and I’m very grateful for your guidance and inspiration. I went vegan about 4 1/2 years ago and ultimately went no oil as much as possible. I really believe it’s the future. As corny as it sounds, it can literally save humanity, the planet, and the animals. Cooking and baking without animal products and without added oil is possible and it’s delicious !! Thanks Helyn !! Regards, Mal

    Thank you for the great recipes and the heads-up to copy our favorites…. that has kept me busy!
    Many were a “go to” when I needed a recipe to share
    or just something different for us.
    Wishing you a healthy and happy future and looking forward to your new website.

  18. Dianne Millman says:

    Thanks so much for your incredible recipes and effort to make our lives better. I found you this year and have savored your recipes and spread the word to all my whole food plant-based friends.
    Your presence will be missed. You are a precious jewel!
    Ans, thanks for the heads up!
    May good fortune follow you in your new venture!
    Thanks, Helyn!

    I have long used your fruitcake recipe, coming back to it year after year. Thank you for your hard work. And thank you, so much, for giving us the heads up about copying the recipes.

    Dearest Helyn,

    I cannot thank you enough for showing me and my husband the way to health. Years ago, your generous and expert guidance into the world of plant-based living changed our lives for the better, forever! Now, I cannot imagine our kitchen without your recipes, and I am sure my husband would never have embraced plant-based eating without your yummy nacho sauce. We wish you the very best with the next chapter of your life and look forward to seeing what your creative spirit will do next. With love always from both of us.
