Detox Detox

I’m sitting here with a cup of tea, herbal, no sugar. Normally, I’d be sitting here with a cup of coffee: 1 level teaspoon coffee, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, only 1/2 cup boiling water, 1/4 cup 2% organic milk. Coffee is a scientific formula to be followed very, very closely. It’s that important! Are you as […]

Fresh Fresh

Thinking about my recent trip to Israel, I realize that fresh and good food was so easy to find there, and at relatively inexpensive prices. The restaurant at the beach, the little falafel shop, the pastries at the grocery store at 10 PM, the street corner Shawarma place…  It was all good, fresh, and cheap. […]

Naked who? Naked who?

Remember the Naked Chef? You know, the guy with the cool hair, very energetic, talks fast, cooks even faster, Jamie Oliver? About 10 years ago when he became famous, he was referred to as the Naked Chef. These days he is simply Jamie. I did not understand what the nakedness was all about back then. […]

Chicken Liver with Cinnamon and Apples Chicken Liver with Cinnamon and Apples

When I was a child – which was a long time ago, but not THAT long ago – my grandma used to make chicken soup and there were chicken feet, and a throat, in the soup. And I remember my mom, who didn’t cook very often, cooking a cow’s tongue from time to time. Yeah, […]

With Respect to the Animals

I just watched a horrifying video a few hours ago showing the lives of animals raised on “farms”, from their birth to our table. I can’t stop thinking about it. I’d like you to visit my Good Food & Bad Food blog and read the post I wrote about it, “Can We Eat Like That […]

Good Food & Bad Food Good Food & Bad Food

Hi everyone, I don’t know how many of you know that I write another blog which is called “Good Food & Bad Food”. I sometimes post there when I read/see something that irritates me regarding food, and sometimes I will post about something that is very good about food. There are some posts that you […]

Back to School - Lead in Lunchboxes

From The Center for Environmental Health web site: Since the summer of 2004, CEH has purchased and tested over 200 children’s soft vinyl lunchboxes and found that many of them contained high levels of lead. Lead was usually found in the lining of the lunchboxes where it could come into contact with food. In addition […]

Farmed Tilapia eating what???

I have just returned from a vacation in BC, Canada, where I read this article in the local Globe and Mail newspaper.This is another example of how people play with nature, in this case feeding animals what they are not supposed to eat. The result is a food product that is not as healthy for […]

The Future of Food – the movie. The Future of Food – the movie.

I can’t sleep. My son woke me up at 4:43 am because he had a bad dream. I had a bad dream too. I really shouldn’t watch scary movies late at night. I didn’t plan to write about serious “things” on this blog. At first this movie did leave me speechless, but then my brain […]
