Seth and I were more than 12,000 miles apart when we celebrated 24 years of marriage in January! I was at KTLA’s studios in Los Angeles to talk about how to make healthier food choices without feeling deprived. This was timely because “Quitter’s Day” comes around just a couple of weeks into January. I hadn’t […]

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

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 […]

Despite my suggestions to avoid going on a restrictive juice cleanse, incorporating more veggies into your normal diet by adding a daily juice is an […]

One day I found myself with some of my leftover Mango Salsa in the fridge, a bowl of strawberries and a houseful of thirsty friends. Struck with some wild inspiration, I questioned: Why not combine the lot? Don’t laugh, this strawberry and mango frozen margarita is proving to be one of my favorite inventions yet! The combo […]

Confession: I’m not a smoothie kind of girl. I prefer my calories in solid form. But milkshakes? I have a soft spot for milkshakes. The other day I created this creamy and decadent “smoothie-milkshake,” without the ice cream — yum! Nutrition and indulgence all in one. But here’s the best bit: my three-year-old son Liam loved it […]

summer sangria

read the post

Let me begin by saying, I did my research. I tried red sangria with brandy, white sangria with liquor and tested versions with various mixtures of wine and fruit and — tough job — and let me tell you, humbly of course, this recipe truly ROCKS. It’s perfectly “drinkable” (OK, dangerously so) but such a perfect combo of […]

gluten free banana bread

Gooey, flavorful, light and satisfying. Need I say more? The original inspiration for this recipe came from one of my visits to Canyon Ranch. They serve their version of this bread every morning at their rocking breakfast buffet (I don’t recommend eating this daily, it’s extremely hard to resist). Here is my spiced up gluten-free […]
