Recipe: Homemade Almond Milk

Though I don’t have anything against cow’s milk, I don’t really enjoy drinking it.  The only time I’ll have milk is on cereal (and that happens about twice a year).  I’m not opposed to it; I eat cheese and yogurt, I just don’t like drinking milk.  And I know I’m not alone. However, I do […]

Recipe: Creamy Beet and Green Garlic Pasta

Beets are coming into season soon and green garlic is going out!  This recipe puts both to good use while the seasons overlap.  Using cream cheese instead of goat cheese helps cut the fat of the dish, while keeping it creamy and sweet.  This recipe is an easy meal to prepare when you have very […]

Myth: to get enough iron, you need to eat red meat

TRUTH: It’s true that some Americans don’t get enough iron (i.e. menstruating women) and some get way too much (creating cancer-causing free radicals).  Though, it’s not because we’re lacking sufficient red meat intake. First, let’s be clear about red meat consumption in the U.S.  It’s very high; too high in fact.  Most Americans consume about […]

HBO’s Weight of the Nation: Dramatic yet disappointing

HBO should be applauded for producing a multi-part documentary film about obesity in this country.  I also think they should be commended for putting the entire series online here, rather than trying to rent it out to make a profit. However, I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed.  Though the serious highlighted some important […]

News Flash: Organic food customers are selfish and rude!

I’m about to blow your mind.  We’re jerks.  All of us (as a group), not as individuals.  How can I make such a terrible, blanket statement like that?  Well, I’m merely the messenger so don’t shoot me. A new study came out recently that our moral processing is related to our tastes and those also […]

Myth: Calorie counts are necessary to lose weight

TRUTH:  We already know that the fat burning program on cardio machines doesn’t burn more fat.  But, the calorie count is factual, right?  No!    It feels good to watch ‘calories burned’ increase during a workout, but by how much is highly variable.  It could be off by 10 calories or it could be off by […]

Easy at-work lunches stored in your desk

You’re running to work and you don’t have a lunch packed, again.  You’re probably annoyed, frustrated, and feeling like your goal to eat healthy has been foiled, again.  Lunch at work can be difficult, particularly if you’re not a home cook.  If you want something fast, easy, and that can be stored in your desk, […]

Guide to Jammin’ and Cannin’

Jams, chutneys, preserves – whatever you want to call them, they’re basically the same thing: some combination of fruits and vegetables that are cooked into a thicker, gel-like substance and are great as spreads, glazes, and fillings.  However, there are definitely a few things you need to know before embarking on this endeavor for the […]

Recipe: Minty Fava and Asparagus Salad

This is a spring salad if ever there was one.  The only non-seasonal items in here are from items that don’t grow in this region (lemons, olives).  This spring green salad (emphasis on green) is light and refreshing but a little different than the standard.  It looks creamy but has a light, delicate flavor.  Some […]
