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

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

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

Snow Cream (Ice Cream)

Snow Cream (Ice Cream)

Hi again! Today’s topic is ice cream made with freshly fallen snow. I was introduced to this sweet treat by my husband’s family.  It is a fun, simple and tasty dessert to make as a family. Back East, we usually only got to make Snow Cream once a year, but out here in the mountains, … Continue reading

My Big Non-Fat Greek Yogurt

My Big Non-Fat Greek Yogurt

Welcome back, friends! Today’s topic is one of my very favorite foods – Greek yogurt. Its health benefits include probiotics, calcium, high protein, low sugar, and, if made with skim milk, it can also be fat free. The downside to this versatile taste treat is that it can be pretty expensive, especially if you eat … Continue reading

I hear all the groans coming from those of you who learned to hate these delightful green gems as children. I understand where you’re coming from. Most home cooks only know one way to prepare Brussels Sprouts … Continue reading
