All this talk about metabolism and my new paradigm has lead more than a few of you to ask, “so . . . what ARE you eating, anyway?” Short answer is: a lot of lean protein and non-starchy vegetables. Like at most every meal. [Read more →]

I’m re-running this post from last year, to remind you to think about signing up for a summer CSA share this year . . . we’re on board for Picadilly Farm’s CSA again this year and I can’t wait for all that organic veggie goodness to start arriving!
It’s springtime and here in the Northeast, things are greening and leafing and my thoughts are turning to locally grown vegetables. After a long winter of trucked- and flown-in produce, I’m ready for locally-grown: It’s flavorful, fresh-picked and fabulous. How to get your hands on some of that? Your local farmer’s market is a great source, and you might like strolling around, talking to the merchants and picking out your produce each week. Or you might want to join a CSA.

Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s a roundup of my most popular pins this week.
This Pina Colada fruit salad recipe would be a great addition to a summer brunch:
Avocado & lime & cantaloupe salad? YES!
I have 5,000 lbs. of CSA tomatoes on my counter – this Southeast Asian tomato salad would be a tasty & creative way to showcase them:
What about carrots? I have a ton of those, too, from my CSA. This duo of shredded carrot salads (one sweet, one savory) is a treat for the eyes, as well as for the palate!
The addition of corn is an interesting twist on the classic Caprese salad:
I’d add a can of rinsed & drained pinto beans to this Mexicali raw corn salad with beans & lime to create a light, vegetarian lunchbox item:

Hello, sweeties! So much has been going on – good and not-so-great. My daughter’s had all sorts of health issues this summer – nothing too serious, but serious enough to suspend plans and abort vacations and visit emergency departments in two different countries. So needless to say, that’s where I’ve been. And not here. She’s getting sorted out, and now, so am I! [Read more →]

Hey friends – just a reminder that today is THE LAST DAY to sign up for this workshop!
And what if you want to come, but can’t? Why not contact me about setting something up? I’m available to talk to your school group, at your mom’s night out – to any group you want to assemble, on a wide variety of health- or food-related topics. We can tailor something to your needs/interests – curious about some new foods and not sure how to incorporate them into your meals? How ’bout a cooking class? Want to understand how to make small changes in your life to reduce your toxic body burden? I can help you understand plastics, BPA, and all that jazz. Look me up and let’s chat.
You know you need to eat more “healthful foods,” but how the heck do you prepare them? Flummoxed? Or, are you on top of your superfood prep, but looking for some new recipes? Come and be inspired on May 3, 2012 from 7-8:30 at Healthy Habits Kitchen in Wellesley. I’ll show you easy ways to prepare kale, quinoa and sweet potatoes – three popular “superfoods.” You’ll be treated to dinner and dessert, plus samples of a few of my favorite recipes using these three nutritional powerhouses. We’ll discuss why you should incorporate as many superfoods as you can into your diet, along with quick ‘n’ easy tips from me on how to do it. You’ll leave with a recipe booklet so you can super-charge your meals at home.
Why HHK? I’ve had a long love-affair with this place, starting back in ’09. HHK’s food is tasty, easy to prep, and healthful to boot! HHK is the ONLY Semi-Sweet-endorsed meal prep service around. It’s not “prepared food,” it’s real food, prepped for you. You order up your HHK meal kits and stow them in your fridge or freezer . . . then pull one out when you need a meal on the table fast. Everything you need’s included. Heck, you can even get home-made cookie dough to bake off for dessert! When you sign up for this seminar, you’ll receive a $10 credit toward any meal kits purchased that night.
So grab a friend, or three, and come out and join me! Register by April 27th, ’cause space.is.limited!

I’ve got a lot of kitchen stuff. Just ask my poor husband who put together a giant Ikea armoire to house extra pie plates, cake pans, cookie cutters, etc. etc. etc. We have a big kitchen with lots of cupboard space, but where to put the 3 (yes, you read that right) waffle irons? The juicer? The panini press? Downstairs.
But what do I actually use on a daily basis? That’s a whole ‘nother story. [Read more →]

We just came home from three days away in Washington, D.C. And while it was an active vacation (even *I* got tired of walking), I was reminded that eating healthy on the road can be a real challenge. So, because ’tis the season for hitting the road more often, I’ve compiled 8 top tips for you! [Read more →]
