Fresh Food and Fresh Ideas

Fresh Food and Fresh Ideas

Welcome back! Yesterday I wrote about my new food journey into a lifestyle of mostly raw, mostly vegan foods. While I am feeling great, I have noticed two things about this lifestyle that are potential problems. First, it can be expensive. As Dr. Fuhrman would explain in Eat to Live, this is largely due to … Continue reading

A New Way of Looking at Food

Welcome, friends! Today I want to share with you some thoughts on healthy cooking and eating. I Thought I Was Doing Alright… I’ve generally thought of myself as a pretty healthy person when it comes to food. I don’t overeat very often, don’t eat a lot of junk food, and I like vegetables. I don’t … Continue reading

Fall’s Best Soup

Confession: I’m not a big fan of soup. Specifically, I don’t think soup counts as a meal. As a first course, or with a serious sandwich or salad, maybe. But in general “soup for dinner” is a big rip-off. It’s like a n0-cheese egg white omelet, not really food.  However, there is one soup that … Continue reading

Homemade Raw Trail Mix

Homemade Raw Trail Mix

Welcome back!  A while ago, I promised you some economical, healthy snack foods. One of my favorite snacks is raw trail mix. I used to love the prepackaged peanut, chocolate and raisin mixes. That is, until I realized how terribly unhealthy they were. I might as well have been eating candy bars. But the flavor … Continue reading

Smoked Trout Spread

Prepare yourselves for yumminess. Today I’m going to share with you a great way to use one of my favorite local natural resources – Rainbow Trout. Of course, there are as many ways to prepare trout as there are cooks: broiled, grilled, steamed, pan-fried, stuffed, etc. I will happily eat each and every one of … Continue reading

Bacon – A Conspiracy and A Cookie

Bacon – A Conspiracy and A Cookie

Welcome back! I’m a little ashamed of today’s post. I’m not one to go in for trends, be they music, fashion, or food. I’m also not a huge fan of bacon. I like the flavor well enough, but the idea of eating strips of meat that are 70 % fat (or more) just doesn’t appeal … Continue reading

Shamrock Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

Shamrock Cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day

I had a brilliant idea yesterday. Shamrock cupcakes! Of course! St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite quasi-holidays, even though I’m more Scottish than Irish, and I can’t stand beer, even if it is green. I like having the right to pinch anyone not festive enough to wear green, and there is no better way … Continue reading

True Confessions of a Foodie

True Confessions of a Foodie

    I love food. I love to make it, I love to eat it, I love to look at it, I love to read about it. I don’t really like the word “foodie,” but it seems to describe me pretty well. There are many characteristics that all foodies supposedly have in common, and I … Continue reading
