Have you ever thought to yourself “I should really stretch more often?”. Or perhaps whenever you see signs for a yoga studio or a friend tells you she just came back from yoga class you think “I should really do that”. We have many things that we tell ourselves we wish we could do but […]

Small-Scale (and Safe!) Gatherings to Beat the Winter and Pandemic Blues -

read the post

With colder temperatures and the pandemic still in full swing, it’s easy to start feeling isolated, disconnected, and just generally down. And there’s a reason why this kind of isolation feels uncomfortable or even outright painful: humans are social creatures, and life is a communal event. So with this simple truth in mind, the question […]

Hummus is a staple in our fridge at home. We use it as a dip, a spread, a dressing, and more. I never buy hummus since it’s so easy to make. Also, since I discovered the effect that good sun-dried tomatoes have on the classic dish, acting as a delightful flavor enhancer, this recipe has […]

Sprouted Raw Hummus

read the post

I can’t say I always sprout my hummus but when I do have the time it’s a good way to make chickpeas more nutritious and digestible. The consistency and flavor of sprouted hummus feels more real, raw and earthy, and if you’ve never tried sprouting, it’s kind of fun to watch your chickpeas come alive. Serve this with […]

Nealy's Zucchini Latkes

read the post

Latkes are classically eaten during the Chanukah holiday but these yummy fritters shouldn’t be reserved for a once a year treat. In our house this zucchini version of the old potato classic is a year round staple. I put a healthified spin on the latke by shallow frying in olive oil and finishing them off in […]

In the days when I used to eat bagels for breakfast, Passover seemed like agony. A whole week without breads, grains, legumes, rice and other staple carbs. Actually, sounds a bit like a Paleo week doesn’t it? Passover can be a breeze assuming you avoid matzah, jelly rolls, potatoes and anything with scary amounts of sugar. […]

Raw Spring Rolls with Herbed Almond Sauce

This new appetizer is a favorite of mine. It was created by accident one day (as many good recipes are) when I had some leftovers to play with. If you’re looking for a fresh and simple weekend bite or a well-balanced light meal idea, these beef lettuce cups are the perfect marriage of nutrition, texture, and […]

They say you “don’t make friends with salad”. And brussels sprouts are certainly not a sure-fire way of making friends either. But trust me, these two signature ingredients will soon have you winning people over. This post was previously featured in Little Steps, the go-to guide for parents in Hong Kong, but I have since adapted the recipe slightly. If […]

The Best Green Salad with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Salads and Sides

I created this tabouleh by accident. I was chopping up herbs and veggies for an Israeli salad when I noticed I had some dehydrated crispy quinoa on the countertop. I threw some in and it added such a fun crunch and flavor that I kept making it over and over again.
