Detox: What about the kids? Detox: What about the kids?

A reader recently asked (as well as participants in my new cooking classes) how are the kids doing and what are they eating, since I started with the detox diet and all the changes that followed. “I wonder how it goes with your kids? Do they change their diet too? Do you eat separately and […]

A treat (Kale chips) A treat (Kale chips)

Baked kale chips. I’ve seen them before on this blog and this blog and wanted to make them ever since. While I was on the Detox diet (now I’m on an elimination diet to try and figure out which food/s make my body crazy (more about that later) ) it was the perfect timing to […]

Quick lunch Quick lunch

I am crazy busy promoting this theater play (for tickets http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/248853) … but I wanted to give you something quick and delicious to make for lunch. It might not look like much. It might not look like something filling. But it is both. Rice and lentils, or some sort of downsized Mujadara in this case, […]

Restaurants Restaurants

I remember this night about a year ago, having dinner in one of my favorite restaurants in Capitol Hill. I remember the exact table where we sat, my husband and I, on a date night, while we were examining the menu and planning our meal. Everything sounded tasty and good. We wanted to try almost […]

Detox – cosmetics Detox – cosmetics

When I started the Detox diet, almost by chance, I had not idea what impact it is going to have on my life. It happened by a series of consequences when one thing led to another. I thought “OK, I’d give it a try and see what happens”. By the end of the Detox, 3 […]

Now what? Now what?

I’ve been trying to do some detective work to find out what’s causing my health “issues”. I might have sensitivity to eggs. I will have to re-check that again sometimes in the future. It could also be wheat, or dairy, or… It could also be something that is not food. It could be a side effect […]

Detox – 21 days Detox – 21 days

The 21 days of Detox are officially over. How do I feel? I feel great. So much better than what I had felt in the past few months, maybe even more than a year… I can’t remember. I lost about 10 lbs. and I feel much lighter. My skin is cleaner and relaxed. My achy […]

Detox – what to eat? Detox – what to eat?

After 14 days of Detox I find that what I miss the most is…. extra virgin olive oil. (Even more than coffee.) From roasting, sautéing and grilling, I switched to steaming and poaching. I actually found that steamed fish gets much tender and stays moist and delicate when steamed compared to the other cooking methods. […]

Only tea for me Only tea for me

On Saturday we went to a concert. The venue served delicious Asian food, mainly Thai food, I think, and cocktails and… And I had tea. We usually go to dinner before a concert/show/movie. You know, to extend the date night by an hour or two. Leave the house while the kids are awake, return when […]
