Craving Sesame: Cover Your Buns with Vitamin T

Have you ever craved a particular food so much that you find yourself mixing it with just about anything you can think of, no matter how crazy? That’s how I’ve been feeling about sesame seeds lately. Luckily for me, they have a pretty neutral flavor—though I wouldn’t necessarily recommend them in tea. Yes, I said […]

Tomato Ricotta Tart with Grain-Free Flax Crust

It was cold today—damp, boots and sweater-wearing, bone-chilling cold. Okay, maybe it only felt that frigid because yesterday I was wearing shorts and flip-flops. But it made me want to eat soup, under a blanket. Instead, I opted for this tart! Why? Because I’m obviously not quite ready to let go of summer yet. And […]

Obesity Is a Disease—Are Refined Carbohydrates the Cause?

Burn more calories than you eat, and you’ll lose fat. This belief, known as the “calories-in, calories-out” theory, is an unquestioned principle of nutrition. We all buy it. And it makes sense—if we assume all calories behave the same in the body. Or, as the dietitians like to put it, “a calorie is a calorie,” […]

Dear Stress, I Love You

I am vowing to start a love affair with…stress. After all, most of us come face-to-face with some form of stress on pretty much a daily basis. We may as well learn to love anything (or anyone) we deal with that frequently. It makes life easier and, after watching Kelly McGonigal’s TED Talk on the subject, […]

Healthy Malted Chocolate Ice Cream

Autumn is just around the corner, and while I look forward to brisk morning walks and nights snuggled up with a good book, I am equally sad when the reality of early darkening skies and frigid weather sets in.

Cholesterol Is Good

Heart disease is personal for me and my family. I held my father’s hand as he passed away from his second heart attack. And yes, Dad was taking a statin drug in an effort to prevent that second attack. Statins, prescribed to lower cholesterol, have become the bestselling class of drugs in history—based on a […]

It’s Not You; It’s My Thyroid

Let’s play a game. It’s a lot like Jeff Foxworthy’s  “You might be a redneck if…” routine—but not nearly as amusing. This version is called “You might be hypothyroid if…” You have the energy level of a sloth, yet your sleep is restless almost every night. You lose enough hair in the shower each day […]

Thai Shrimp with Tomatoes and Herbs

The versatility of shrimp is endless. It takes well to assertive flavors, such as curries, but is equally happy bathed simply in its own juices, along with a splash of white wine. It is also a quick and convenient way to get a tasty dinner on the table. No wonder it is such a popular […]

Quick Sauce and Slow Food Memories

My fresh, organic garden tomatoes, onions, and garlic simmer away on this early September afternoon, evoking the smells and flavors of my first autumn in northern Italy as a 6-year-old.
