Baked Garlic Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet Potatoes are a very impressive superfood that I used to not get to eat until the holidays. However, to take advantage of this delicious, nutrient packed veggie on a more consistent basis, I learned to make Baked Garlic Sweet Potato Wedges. I like the taste of this treat because the garlic flavor balances out […]

Food for Thought: Are we misreading cancer just like they misread the Black Death 700 years ago?

I don't wanna get too morbid in my "feel good blog", and I promise to end this piece on a positive note and some cool positive photography as always. But I had to write this piece since I just saw a show on the History Channel about the tragedy of the 14th century, the Black […]

Maca: the superfood that’s a super friend to everyone over 40

Salmon Dip is on that list. Quality ingredients do so much for health, but […]

No recipe required: Baked Chicken Thighs with Honey Dijon Sauce

As much as I am into the art of food, I still am not into having to make a every meal a "grand production".  On a day to day basis, I like it to be a very quick, low maintenance affair. I have never been a true of fan of chicken breast, because I have […]

A case for [quality] animal protein: Optimal Vitamin D levels from Salmon

Although I fully agree that eating as many vegetables as possible should be part of any healthy eating regiment, I doubt if I ever become a vegetarian. My decision to keep eating some forms of what I call "quality" animal protein is based to a fairly large degree on what I've learned from research about […]
