Happy 2018!
We hope that you have huge plans for the new year! We are excited to see what you all accomplish.
We’ve got some fun news to share as we start 2018…​
Many of you know Andrea from our Atlas team, but did you know that she just got married to her new husband, Daniel?
From the whole Atlas family, we wanted to  congratulate Andrea and Daniel!​​​​​​
We’re so excited to welcome Terra to our team!  Here some fun facts to help you get to know her…

Fun Facts:

*  I’m from Punxsutawney PA – The town that is famous for Groundhog Day.

*  I’m an animal lover. I have a cat named Taco and one day hope to own a horse or two.

*  My comfort food would be just about any kind of soup; and my comfort drink would be coffee!

*  Nashville is my favorite TV show – I got to be an extra for one of the new episodes!

*  Aside from my husband, my Mom and Nana are my everything!

​​​​​​​One of our favorite breakfast treats… Blueberry Muffins! Cristina uses this recipe from Sally Clarkson’s blog, and has made a few minor adjustments.

Sally’s Blueberry Muffins

1 ½ cups freshly ground whole wheat flour (Or flour of your choice)
½ cup organic coconut palm sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk or 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup fresh blueberries (you could also use frozen)
½ cup organic turbinado sugar
1/3 cup flour
¼ cup butter, cubed
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and baking powder.
Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup.
Mix this with flour mixture and fold in blueberries.
Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
Make Crumb Topping – Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven–or cover batter in pans and pop into the fridge to bake in the morning!

*Double the recipe to make about one dozen muffins.​​​​​

One of our sweet patients named Hannah has begun an important initiative to collect blankets for the homeless.  We love to see young people like Hannah making a difference and we plan to be a part of it.
In the month of February we’ll have a collection station in our office to support Hannah’s mission.  More details coming soon!​​​​
