How To Cut Down On Added Sugar In Your Life

I really think that the key to eating healthier is making your own food. Buy raw and fresh ingredients and make your meals from scratch. To improve upon that strategy would be to grow your own veggies and raise your own animals. But farming isn’t something that everyone can do. But knowing what is in your Read the rest of this entry

Poll Response: Nutrition


80% say that they have good nutrition and 20% say that they don’t.

With the rising obesity rates and the rising frequency of medical problems in general that are related to poor nutrition, I find it unlikely that we are doing as well as we hope. Nutrition is a crazy and complex thing.Β  (more…)

This comes back down to the single most important nutritional truth: Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

And the second most important? Eat variety.

I’m not an advocate for being vegetarian or vegan. I love my meat. Chicken being my favorite. But it is important to get most of your calories from those lovely plants. It really will help you feel better all areas of your life.

I also recommend avoiding processed foods.

Favorites!


Food is essential for life, but it is also tightly entwined with out cultures. There are some foods that are strongly connected to childhood memories and some that we just love the taste or feel of. We all have them. What are they for you?

Here’s some of mine (in no particular order):

  1. British Meat Pies. These are one of those foods that I connect with childhood goodness. I haven’t had them in a really long time. Maybe I should fix that! But I can remember requsting them for my birthday dinner. I always piled on the mustard and with each bite enjoyed a sincere and simple moment of happiness. And I think I have posted the recipe on here somewhere… maybe…
  2. New York Extra Sharp Cheddar. This is one of those foods that I can eat just about any time. Nothing is required to accompany it, but there are a ton of things that augment its goodness. This is one of those foods that I like the taste of, but it is the texture that really calls to me. The mouth feel is simply amazing.
  3. Popcorn. Seriously. I can eat this everyday. I could live off this stuff. You can do so much with it. Yet, it is great all alone. This is another food that gets me at the texture. A perfect crunch!

So, what are your favorites and why?

Ramen #1


Alright, when it comes to cooking, I am essentially lazy. I go for easy and reasonable nutritional value before I go for tasty. Yeah, I know, it being tasty is important since if it’s yucky no one is going to eat it. That being said, I have made a few compromises that embrace the lazy cook while still making something that tastes pretty damn good. (more…)
