Cooking in the Kitchen with My Father

Food is fascinating. I love the art of preparing and eating good food, something I’ve recently embraced as a new hobby. One of the great benefits of cooking is feeling the connection I have with my parents and grandparents. I was raised by my grandmother and my parents and each had a different cooking style. They are no longer living, but I still have those memorable moments and think about them often while I cook. One of my favorite memories […]

The Importance of a Healthy Breakfast

Recently, my hair stylist was having a moment. It was well after 12 o’clock noon and she walked over to me after my dryer cut off and asked if it was ok for her to get something to eat.

It was […]

I wanted something to help my soup-making process along since I’m just starting this healthy eating and home cooking journey. Yes, in fact, my tomato soup has been a three-time failure. Each recipe has been a bit closer to the delectable soup I’ve been craving […]

FBG-116 feat

I’ve heard a lot about the NutriBullet. What can I say, I’m a sucker for infomercials!

Over my time working in and writing about the health and fitness industry, I’ve read a lot about the bioavailability of foods and how inefficient our digestive systems sometimes are at getting all of the vitamins, minerals and other essential […]

He tenido que enfrentar varias problemas con la salud en mi vida, pero un obstáculo que yo tenía la esperanza de evitar era un problema con mi peso. Durante la mayor parte de mi vida, mi peso fluctuó 10 o 15 libras, pero era alta y podía esconder el peso bien. Lo que no me esperaba eran los efectos de esa temida palabra que empieza con la letra “m” … sí, estoy hablando de la menopausia. Después de entrar a […]

A lot of the time, it’s the little things that pull a meal together.

Summer is in full gear and as the weather heats up, so does the urge for something cool and refreshing. However, most people reach for something fattening and processed, such as store bought ice cream or frozen fudge pops. Have you ever looked at the ingredients on these items? For example, on my favorite brand of ice cream, there are my four favorite gums- guar, tara, cellulose, and xanthan- not to mention a whole slew of other mystery ingredients I […]

Supertaster1

I’ve noticed several of you on Facebook turning your nose up at kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli, and collards. No worries, we still love you! And we understand because it’s NOT your fault.

About 25% of Americans are supertasters, or those with a higher-than-average amount of […]
