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.

What do you do at the end of a long day of sitting and working? To steer myself away from reaching for a block of chocolate, hitting the wine or flopping onto the couch, I’ve gotten into the habit of setting aside a few moments as soon I get in the door for a quick stretch.

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 […]
