Every year we hear about failed attempts at healthy holiday eating and every year, something goes terribly wrong. So, this year, don't sabotage your healthy holiday eating with a little red shrub fruit, cranberries. If your family is like mine, cranberry sauce is a staple during the holidays at the table. I mean, who doesn't love a little "sweet tart" cooked fruit to go along with all that other delicious, starchy, fatty, salty holiday food? I know I do...but every year, I make a point of making something raw to bring to the table (of course, adding raw is easy, [...]

If you're into food trivia like me, here's a question for ya'...do you know your drupes? I didn't either, until a few years ago. I've eaten a lot of drupes and you probably have too, without even knowing it. Most people could care less about drupes, but they're a very interesting group of fruits. In fact, drupes are synonymous with many wonderful summer fruits also known as "stone fruits" yet there are three different terms to describe and differentiate them. We'll get into that in just a second. To be specific, drupes are a classification of fruits that have an [...]

Whether you think probiotics are a healthy solution or not, there's no denying that there's a big stinky digestive health problem in the United States. Digestive health is not only a serious health issue, it’s a serious financial issue too. The direct medical costs associated with treating digestive health diseases (including GERD, diverticulitis and viral and intestinal cancers and infections) are astronomical. But before we get to that...I want to introduce you to someone important in history. Elie Metchnikoff. He’s the scientist who discovered probiotics in the late 1800′s. He is well known for pioneering research in the field of [...]

“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates Raw food has been around since we figured out how to grow it. Therefore, a raw food diet isn't really a diet at all. It can be completely integrated into daily life. Raw food consumption can be one of the most efficient ways to include potent vitamin and mineral rich foods into a daily menu because plant based diets contain abundant amounts of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and proteins. Unfortunately, food policy, agribusiness, the application of pesticides and herbicides, the deceptive marketing of food additives and the [...]

This isn't just about the Fuerte avocado. This is about history...and dinner! Read more... Earlier this week, I found these Fuerte Avocados at my favorite neighborhood market. I've been a fan of the Haas variety for a long time, but this was my first taste of the Fuerte...and my oh my. The texture is creamy just like the Haas, but with a nutty flavor so it's a great accompaniment to leafy greens, grains or dressing you'll make during the winter months...especially the recipe that follows. I learned that December and March is this avocado's natural season but unfortunately, if you [...]

If you’re anything like me you want to live a cleaner life, at home, in the office and out in the world. If you’re like me, you’ve read all the labels and spent way too much on trying to keep common household chemicals out of the air and water in your home. I stopped using most “big brand” house cleaners long ago when the explosion of more eco friendly, just as good house cleaners emerged at the grocery store. But those products often cost more because naturally, we want to “do good” and purchase products that don’t contaminate our homes [...]
