Eat More of These Starches

For a long time, I demonized starches. You know, these kind…  I felt that the idea of needing a starch with every meal was ludicrous and was contributing to rising rates of heart disease, diabetes and obesity in this country. I was partially wrong. Americans eat WAY too many starches throughout the day (see above!), [...]

Pure 7 Chocolate

I am completely in love with chocolate. Many of you know this, but for those that don’t, my love affair with all things chocolate started at the ripe age of oh, I don’t know, 3! My parents actually entered my twin sister, Catherine, and I into a diaper “derby” contest and while all the other [...]

Holiday Kale & Pomegranate Salad

This is THE best holiday/winter salad ever. It is a simple salad with 3 main ingredients and carries a powerful punch of salty, crunchy and sweet. Don’t believe me? Just go ahead and see for yourself. Ingredients 3 bushels of Dinosaur Kale, chiffonade 1 pomegranate, seeded 4 cups shitake mushrooms, sliced thinly 4-5 tablespoons coconut [...]

Why Raspberries Rule

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is intense. Red foods are often very intense. Most of my life, red has been my favorite color (now, it’s orange) and it makes sense now looking back because [...]

Peanut Butter Pecan Protein Bars

I have stopped buying protein bars or energy bars from stores because they are often loaded with white sugar, refined ingredients and aren’t balanced. There are only a handful of companies I think put great integrity into making their energy/protein bars but let’s be serious, it can be expensive to buy 3-5 bars per week. [...]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tis the season…pumpkin season that is.  Not only does the winter squash make a tasty addition to soups, baked goods and even oatmeal, it also packs a powerful nutritional punch.  Pumpkin is loaded with the antioxidant beta-carotene and other carotenoids, which help neutralize free-radicals and ward off cancer.  It’s also a great source of fiber, [...]

I have long been a fan of the research and writing of Donna Jackson Nakazawa. I knew that if anyone could connect the dots between stress, self care and health it would be Donna’s personal story of transformational healing. I first came across Donna’s writing while taking a course on functional nutrition a few years [...]

Spicy Black Bean Burger

Lately, I have been craving a burger. I am a big texture person and there is something really enjoyable about biting into a sandwich/burger with loads of yummy toppings. I don’t eat meat though and finding a good veggie burger in NYC is rather tough if you can believe it. I think my cravings for [...]

Magical Pumpkin Smoothie

I mean, how can you not love pumpkin? I am in love with every part of the magical pumpkin. The vibrant colors, the unique shape, the plethora of ways to incorporate it into recipes and of course how it elevates the atmosphere of a room. I like smoothies, but you may be surprised to know [...]
