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 […]

carrrot banana muffins gluten free

Back in my New York City college days my friends and I used to walk 20 blocks to line up for the most amazing giant carrot muffins. They were way too good and way too bad for you all at the same time. I’ve since given up anything with copious amounts of sugar and any […]

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 […]

Take a moment and review everything you ate yesterday. What did you have for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner? Be honest. Take a mental look at your plate. What percentage of your daily food consumption came from vegetables? One way to make a radical shift in the way you eat is to consider making vegetables – […]

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Alright, the good news is that with one bite of these crispy, buttery, and utterly addicting raw crackers, you’ll never be caught reaching for gluten-filled saltines again. The bad news? You will need a dehydrator for these crackers and once you start you won’t be able to […]

Who doesn’t love a good guacamole? In my humble opinion a good guacamole is one the greatest dishes on the planet — a dip, a side, a garnish and, I confess, sometimes even a snack on its own with a spoon! It kills me when a perfectly good avocado is wasted on a mushy tasteless guac. So […]

Dehydrated spiced nuts are simply sensational. Never tried them? Take my word for it! They have an almost buttery taste and are packed with flavor. It’s worth the investment in a dehydrator! I have stashes of these spicy roasted pistachios stored for quick and easy snacking. You can munch on these straight from the container, add them to […]

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 […]

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 […]
