Image img_0955.jpg

We’re just coming out of the stretch of what I like to call “roasting weather”, wherein I adore the comforting smells and radiating warmth of cranking on the oven. This week’s recipe capitalizes on those aromatic smells I like so much, what with its flavors of sauteed onion, roasted apple, and a sweet and tangy maple glaze. The pork isn’t bad, either! This roast is an excellent opportunity to showcase the types of Read more

The ‘Too Busy To Eat’ Show

There are plenty of times in my life when I’ve been so busy, everything felt confusing. For example, the other day, I put the hard-boiled eggs in the vegetable drawer and my phone in the fridge. (What?! I had it in my hand when I was pulling stuff out to make lunch. It could happen to anybody.) When I get super busy, I get stressed, and when I get stressed, I start doing wacky things. But to be clear… I’ve never been too busy to Read more

Ham & Broccoli Pasta: Our Favorite Family Comfort Food

Once upon a time in the 1960s, there was a family of six in a snowstorm. The father, who did much of the cooking, didn’t know what he would be making for dinner, since the pantry was all but bare. The only things he found were some leftover ham, some pasta, and a few heads of broccoli. And thus, a family legend was born. That was the story of Ham and Broccoli Pasta growing up in my family. The father in question was my grandfather, who was Read more

Image Inline_How_to_Exercise_with_an_Autoimmune_Disorder.jpg

Autoimmune diseases really throw the body for a loop. You’re attacking your own tissues. Your inflammation is sky high. What’s usually good for you—like boosting the immune system—can make it worse. You’ll often restrict eating certain foods that, on paper, appear healthy and nutrient-dense. You take nothing for granted, measure and consider everything before eating or doing it. Sometimes it feels like almost everything has the Read more

Raw Carrot Cake

Image raw-carrot-cake-1.jpg

Last year I put on a bunch of weight. My clothes didn’t fit: even my boots didn’t fit. Worst of all, my face was all puffy and tight-feeling. Then my nutritionist, Cheryl called me. I’ve literally known Cheryl since high school. It’s a really great story, if you’d like to hear it. So in 9th grade I was at this super hard private high school, and there were some really mean girls there. Closer to where we lived was Read more
