HERBS of choice!

I love cooking. I don’t follow any cookbooks or recipes per se. I just like to create with what I have on hand in my pantry, fridge, freezer and herb garden. Of course, right now my herb garden is out of season. Lately, it is covered in a blanket of snow. But once the spring […]

Soup Time

It’s definitely soup time. And with the recipe below soup can be the main event. A big bowl of steaming hot soup is so nourishing. To me, soup prep time is a good time to clean out the fridge of all the bits and pieces of vegetables and certain leftovers that could go into a […]

Swiss Chard

You’ve heard the recommendation to get something leafy green in your diet every day. I try to have a big green salad everyday to ensure I get that “green” food into my system. Green is good. Dark leafy greens are among the most nutrient dense foods you can eat. Lately I have been in a […]

Pomegranates!

It’s the season for pomegranates. I have always loved this beautiful fruit. I remember my Mom buying me pomegranates when I was young. I still look forward to this time of year when fresh pomegranates are available in the grocery stores. The job of breaking the fruit open and seeding it is not my favorite […]

I don’t eat fast food and there are many reasons why. First and foremost, there is very little nutritional value to fast food and it is made of some horrendously damaging chemicals and saturated bad fats, lots of sodium and most likely food coloring to make it look attractive to the hunger center of your […]

Dates

During Covid confinement I have been doing a lot of baking. Something I never really took a liking too. I love cooking but baking wasn’t in my repertoire. Eating sweets and pastries is not in keeping with a healthy diet. But there are ways to enjoy the odd sweet treat while avoiding all of the […]

A Food Refresher! What not to eat…

I don’t know about you but during this “COVID-19” time I’ve kind of let my guard down a bit in the “nutrition” end of things. I’m being very careful in all of the other ways to avoid Covid but we’ve been a little free spirited with our diets. I believe this is because we are […]

I love potatoes!

We think about potatoes as fattening foods. Potatoes have been given a bad rap because most of them are eaten in the form of deep fried “French fries”. Any food that is processed and fried is fattening and bad for our health. But lets give potatoes the love they deserve. Any type of potato….gold, russet, […]
