A Series of Prescriptions #4 — You ARE what you eat...

Nourish, nourishment, nutrition — three words that should have fairly simple definitions, and yet I personally struggle with their meanings more and more.  I often find myself wondering what these words actually mean.  We have “nutrition labeling” on almost all food products that are meant to provide information about the nutrition that is to be found in that product broken down into percentages of fat, protein, carbohydrates, sugars, sodium and a variety of vitamins.  And labels seem to scream out at me from every shelf and aisle in every store about “organic”,  "naturally flavored”, “gluten free”, “low fat”, “non fat”, “low carb”, “unsweetened”, “no added sugars”, “no artificial sweeteners” until I find myself turning all of the noise off and wandering around the store in utter confusion not knowing what actually is good for me, not knowing which foods will actually nourish me, and wondering just how things became so crazy and complicated....

The Might of Magnesium

Recently, I read that according to the National Institute of Health, about 90% of the population is deficient in magnesium. And even though different sources may give us slightly different percentages, the chances are you may be one of the folks in that group. Read More

Pushing the Gardening Envelope

Last fall we decided to try to grow greens all winter. We had both successes and failures. Kale, spinach and daikon radishes did well. Kohlrabi, beets, broccoli rabe and arugula did not fair well. Most likely the veggies that did not thrive struggled because of sowing seeds too late. We did not sow seed until mid/late September. This year we decided to get an earlier start, late August, and added a new comer to the fall/winter garden — saffron. Yes, you are reading correctly, we decided to try to grow and harvest our own saffron — that wonderful spice of delicate red threads that adds flavor to breads, rice and so many other dishes.

What Did the Apple Say to the Butternut Squash?

Tonight I was at a loss about what to make for dinner. And once again I decided rely on my typical method of searching the kitchen for ingredients to throw together. As I looked around the kitchen I found the perfect partners for dinner -- Read More

Which Came First? The Chicken or the Egg? And Does That Really Matter?

You guessed it. Lately I have been thinking about food and its role in my life and in the lives of my clients. Do we eat to live or live to eat? Does a balanced, healthy diet enable us to achieve our goals and live our purpose? Or does the intentional, focused pursuit of our goals enable us to eat a balanced, healthy diet? Does it matter which one comes first? Let’s look at a couple of hypothetical examples: Read More

Summon Your Strength, It's Time To Grocery Shop...

My goal was a simple one. I would run into the grocery store, pick up some almond milk and head home. In my mind it would be a five minute trip at the most, and that was just about all the time I had for this errand. Almond milk would be perfect for my morning smoothies and would help me with my experiment of eliminating dairy from my diet. However, nothing about grocery shopping these days is quite that easy. As I approached the refrigerated section of the store, I could feel the beads of sweat forming on my forehead. Too many almond milk products loomed before me.... Read More
