Is Your Cookware Healthy or Dangerous?

August 28, 2017

Nutritional news headlines warn us about the dangers of Teflon-coated aluminum, plastics and other potential toxins in our cookware. But safe, convenient alternatives are not readily available. The healthy-minded consumer is on a mission to find a safe medium for home cooking while preserving tas...
Arsenic in Our Food?! The "Safety" of the American Food System

Arsenic in Our Food?! The "Safety" of the American Food System

July 25, 2017

Most recently in the food media we've seen a disturbing news item highlighting arsenic found in some cheaper brands of California wines. Now on its own, this bit of news might not seem all that disturbing. After all, maybe it's nothing, or maybe the levels aren't so much to worry about. And on th...

Step Away From the Can: Enter Traditional Food (Part 4)

Begin reading this series from the beginning, right here. So here I am, fully committed to eating only organic food, and happily munching away on my organic crackers, cookies, pastas, breads, and cakes. Enter Traditional Food.

Step Away From the Can: Organic Food, 101 (Part 3)

July 25, 2017

See Part 1 and Part 2 in the Step Away from the Can Series! After I began to see that virtually no processed foods were free of the dangerous ingredients I had learned about, I realized that getting rid of processed food altogether was really the only option. Like everyone else, I was used to the...

Step Away from the Can: Big Food is Not Our Friend (Part 2)

July 25, 2017

In our first post in the Step Away from the Can Series, I told you about my fast-food childhood, and my slow transition away from processed food. Today we will discuss why we should give up processed food, for our health, our economy and for the environment.  We've literally grown up eating proce...

Meatballs for Pot Lucks, Snacks, or over Spaghetti!

March 23, 2017

I love to have a batch of meatballs made up and frozen to throw into a dish when I need a quick meal. They’re of course great over spaghetti noodles and red sauce for a classic dinner, or toss them with Teriyaki sauce and put toothpicks in them to serve as appetizers at a party. Another quick mea...

Mushroom and Black Bean Chili in VitaClay

March 22, 2017

Chili is great, especially when the weather is cold and you just want something warm, satisfying and delicious. It’s also pretty easy to make, especially with a slow cooker. Throw all of the ingredients in the morning (or the night before) and set it, then dinner is ready! Sometimes it’s good to ...

Eat More Fat! Shredded Honey Maple Chicken Slow Cooked in Clay

March 22, 2017

I consider myself a healthy eater, and I am very conscious about what I put in my body (or even on my body for that matter). I find it interesting, however, that for the vast majority of people I talk to when I mention eating “healthy” they bring up chicken breasts and salads. Of course, I know t...

Last weekend I took a day trip into San Francisco with a few friends. It’s a nice, relaxing way to spend an afternoon: we went to Lombard Street, Chinatown, Union Square and Ghirardelli Square. Then we finished up our time walking around Fisherman’s Wharf: Pier 39. I really like to visit Fisherma...

Warm Apple Supreme: Paleo and Vegetarian!

March 21, 2017

I love that apples are pretty much available all year long and that they are really versatile: they can be eaten as a snack, taken in the car for a quick bite, an addition to a meal, or even added to savory recipes like dressing or meats. Apples are great, but sometimes I find them a bit sweet to...

Hump Day Blues: One Pot Meals Make Dinner Easy!

March 20, 2017

It's Wednesday. That day of the week when the weekend is just as far behind as it is ahead. It may be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel today, and dinner is just one more thing that has to be done before you are finished for the day. So I'd like to introduce Hump-Day One Pot Meals! E...
