Cashew Creamy Veggie Blend

I’m a blender. Eating one food at a time is booorrrring to me. When I used to eat eggs, I’d usually prepare grits too and they usually wound up in one buttery, blended glob. A peanut butter and jam sandwich with banana on the side – what fun is that? The banana sliced and nestled…

Forget the secrets: Eat well with 3 steps

I read a lot about secrets. The secret to eating healthy; the secret to losing weight. And as a 56-year-old who has starved herself, spent probably hundreds of dollars on diet pills: Dexatrim, Hydroxycut, Green Tea Fat Burner, Jillian Michel’s Fat Burner; I’m here to tell you, THERE IS NO SECRET.

Cauliflower bites: Golden, crunchy … gone

The first time I saw post about “cauliflower steaks” I was skeptical; intrigued but definitely skeptical.

Nix bread: Get saucy with a healthy dunk

Way before I’d ever slurped the end of a doughnut dunked in creamy coffee or even heard of Dunkin’ Donuts, dunking my food was my preferred way of eating it. Now back then, I ate a lot more bread, but my thighs could afford it, and I definitely indulged. There was just something delicious about…

Spotlight your veggies!

Do you get bored eating your vegetables? Oh my, I do. I mean how can you get excited about a handful of carrots or broccoli florets laying on the side of your plate with no other fanfare to boost their appeal and compete with your main dish except their nutritional value? Let’s face it: our…
