A Belated Post of Thanksgiving

December 11th, 2008 · 11 Comments

You might think from my earlier Thanksgiving post that traditional holiday foods don’t do much for me.  Au contraire—one of the more difficult things about food allergies has been dealing with family holiday gatherings where everyone, including me, has specific ideas about what we should be eating, how it should be constructed, and how it […]

Eat Your Beans & Greens—No, Seriously, You Should Make This Recipe

October 30th, 2008 · 19 Comments

Ever since I first tried this recipe out of Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Cooking, we eat it at least twice a month, which is saying something in this house where we rarely eat the same meal twice.  And while we don’t fight over the leftovers, the spouse who offers to let the other eat the […]

Creamy Wild Rice Soup from Super Natural Food

April 28th, 2008 · 10 Comments

This was the sequence of events: One of the other simplicity members and I had both taken note of Heidi Swanson’s macaroon pancake recipe. We decided to make it on our retreat. I took it upon myself to gush to the group about Heidi’s blog: the amazing photos, the natural ingredients, the quality recipes. Then […]

Fairly Quick & Healthy Meals for a Busy Week

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I successfully kept myself busy while my husband was gone (some might say overly busy), he’s come home from Europe safely, and he brought me gluten-free pasta from Italy! I hear it’s going to be fabulous, so I’m really excited about it.  Nonetheless, I’m holding off on using any this week because I’d already gotten […]

Sometimes simple is best

April 5th, 2008 · 7 Comments

. . . especially when one is eating alone and doesn’t commonly eat alone. This was my lunch: organic spring greens, pickled beets, local organic chevre, and organic bacon with a champagne vinaigrette (champagne vinegar, a dash of smoked paprika, a dash of agave, olive oil).  Oh, and my staple glass of water, of course. […]

Late Winter Weekly Meal Plan

February 24th, 2008 · 7 Comments

I’m still on the road to recovery from anemia, though I am feeling somewhat better and was able (yay!) to do a run yesterday without the deep, sickening exhaustion that had been accompanying my exercise. (That was my first run—a short one, just a mile—after taking a week off from exercising while I get my […]

One-Dish Meal: Spaghetti Squash Casserole

February 21st, 2008 · 24 Comments

When people tell you that spaghetti squash tastes just like noodles, they’re lying. Or their taste buds are off, or they have some magical way of cooking it. But despite not tasting like carbolicious spaghetti, spaghetti squash does taste good, and it is filling enough to use as a recipe base in lieu of a […]

True Love (and some mighty-green pasta sauce)

February 16th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’ve been exhausted lately. Not the kind of exhausted where you need a good night’s sleep—really, completely, totally exhausted nearly all the time, despite however much sleep I may get. And it’s reached critical mass in the last couple of weeks, because my exercise has begun to suffer from the feeling. Usually running energizes me, […]

Learning to make salads I love

February 13th, 2008 · 18 Comments

I can’t say I grew up hating salads, because I thought I loved them. Unfortunately, once I was an adult, I realized that I didn’t actually love my childhood salads; I loved drenching lettuce in really high-fat, high-calorie toppings and dressings and then eating those foods. A typical tasty salad of my childhood would have […]
