Coconut Crusted Chicken with a Curry Broth

Many coconut chicken recipes require frying and smothering chicken with dense, heavy (calorie laden) sauces.  My recipe, however, is lighter but with a strong coconut flavor at a reasonable caloric value. Coconut Crusted Chicken with a Curry Broth Serves 8 ½ teaspoon garlic powder 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 2 cups panko bread crumbs ¾ […]

Myth: Cutting carbs will make you lose weight

TRUTH: Oh, KGN readers.  You know this one isn’t true!  I know because you’re intelligent, savvy readers (and I’ve taught you well).  As you probably know, any extra calories are stored as fat.  It doesn’t matter if those calories enter your body as carbs, fat, or protein, they’re all stored as fat. So, there are […]

Myth: To optimize cardio exercise, you need a carbohydrate supplement

TRUTH:  Research that looks at the ingestion of whole food carbohydrates is seriously lacking.  Now that the local, organic, and whole food industries are taking off, the research is quickly following.  There’s been a recent influx of information about using whole foods instead of sports drinks and chews (or goos).  However, two very important studies […]

Recipe: Spiced Apple Cider Soft Caramels

This recipe makes so many caramels that if you don’t have a way of gifting them, cut it in half!  In making this recipe, I tried to cut some of the sugar and cream in traditional caramels, and still end up with a buttery, creamy texture.  I arrived at this recipe by accident – I […]

Travel Nationally, Eat locally

Resolving to travel and explore new places more frequently in the upcoming year is a popular resolution.  As you might expect, I would suggest eating locally when doing so but let’s add another layer: eating the most commonly produced foods from a region.  Local is local is local, so why bother, you ask?  Simply not […]

Myth: Eating asparagus after a night of drinking will cure your hangover

TRUTH: I think every news media outlet has publicized the supposed benefits of eating asparagus as a hangover remedy in the past couple weeks.  Well, readers, it’s only a couple weeks old but I’m busting this one.  If you haven’t heard or read the news lately, a team of researchers at a Korean University found […]
