Vegetarian Tacos – 2 Ways

Millet ‘n Veggie Breakfast Tacos: Two Ways - This filling combination of whole grains and veggies will keep you satisfied long until your next meal.

Being diagnosed with celiac disease was a huge bummer for me. But it was also a huge relief. I finally had a reason for my pain, and a plan for how to feel better. Many people are not that lucky. I have had so many friends go through years of testing and misdiagnosis with no concrete explanations for what is making them sick. So many people who are at the…

Thai Chicken Soup – 3 Ways

Let me tell you more about how much I love my electric pressure cooker. Yesterday I went shopping with my mom for important things like tissue poofs and $5 French wines from Trader Joe’s.

Simple Fish Tacos

Last week I promised you the recipe for simple fish tacos Leila requested on her birthday. I make these all the time, and the kids go crazy for them. I think part of the reason is because the fish, while delicious, is also mild in flavor (and not “fishy” at all). The other reason is because Joe and Leila love any kind of meal they get to “dress up” with…

Quinoa with Beets and Goat Cheese

Spring Training is over, shorts season is here, and I am not 20 years old anymore. Therefore, it’s time to start working out again. I don’t have much of a plan except to do something every day. Whether it’s a DVD, a jog around the neighborhood or quick circuit in the living room, I am going to do something. Because something is always better than nothing. And I was getting…
